Information in this document applies to any platform.


Attempting to increase the security on Solaris 11.4 Net-SNMP version 5.8 by using the AES-256 for SNMPV3 Privacy / Encryption does not appear possible.

Net-SNMP Community resources indicates AES-256 support is available in Net-SNMP version 5.8.

This does not appear as an option in the net-snmp-create-v3-user command in Solaris 11.4 SRU15 and later than has Net-SNMP version 5.8
