username snmpv3 encryption

This command specifies the encryption protocol used for the specified user. The valid encryption protocols are des or none.

If you select des, you can specify the required key in the command line. The encryption key must be 8 to 64 characters long. If you select the des protocol but do not provide a key, the user is prompted for the key. When you use the des protocol, the login password is also used as the SNMPv3 encryption password, so it must be a minimum of eight characters. If you select none, you do not need to provide a key.

The username value is the login user name associated with the specified encryption.


You must enter the username in the same case you used when you added the user. To see the case of the username, enter the show users command.
