SNMPv3 with Aerohive APs and Net-SNMP

In this blog post I am going to explain how to configure SNMPv3 in Aerohive APs and test using Net-SNMP,














SNMPv3 introduce 3 different types of authentication/security methods,

1) NoauthNoPriv - only username is used, NO encryption
2) authNoPriv      - username and password is used but NO encryption
3) authPriv           - username, password and encryption




Give below are few thing that need to be configured to allow SNMP access to the Aerohive AP,













1) This is how to configure NoauthNoPriv in Aerohive AP (using HiveManager)





Use this command in Net-SNMP to do a snmpwalk,



snmpwalk -v 3 -u user1 -l NoauthNoPriv 172.16.1.75







2) This is how to configure authNoPriv in Aerohive AP (using HiveManager)




Use this command in Net-SNMP to do a snmpwalk,


snmpwalk -v 3 -u user1 -l authNoPriv 172.16.1.75 -a MD5 -A aerohive123 







3) This is how to configure authPriv in Aerohive AP (using HiveManager)




Use this command in Net-SNMP to do a snmpwalk,


snmpwalk -v 3 -u user1 -l authNPriv 172.16.1.75 -a MD5 -A aerohive123 -x AES -X 123aerohive
