Setting an IP SNMP ACL Policy

SNMP performs network management functions using a data structure called a Management Information Base (MIB). SNMP is widely implemented but not very secure, because it uses only text community strings for accessing controller or service platform configuration files.

Use SNMP ACLs to help reduce SNMP‘s vulnerabilities, as SNMP traffic can be exploited to produce a denial of service (DoS).

To create an IP SNMP ACL:

  1. Select Configuration > Security > IP Firewall.
  2. Expand the IP Firewall menu item and select IP SNMP ACL.
