6.  IANA Considerations

   The MIB module in this document uses the following IANA-assigned
   OBJECT IDENTIFIER values recorded in the SMI Numbers registry:

         Descriptor        OBJECT IDENTIFIER value
         ----------        -----------------------

         isnsMIB           { mib-2 163 }

   This RFC utilizes the IANA registry of iSNS parameters.  This
   registry was created for the iSNS Specification [RFC4171], and is
   located at http://www.iana.org/assignments/isns-parameters.
   Specifically, the isnsRegEntityProtocol values used in the MIB module
   are the values for the Block Storage Protocols that IANA assigns and
   documents in http://www.iana.org/assignments/isns-parameters.

7.  Security Considerations

   There are no management objects defined in this MIB module that have
   a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write and/or read-create.  So, if this
   MIB module is implemented correctly, then there is no risk that an
   intruder can alter or create any management objects of this MIB
   module via direct SNMP SET operations.

   Some of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects with a
   MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered sensitive or
   vulnerable in some network environments.  It is thus important to
   control even GET and/or NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly
   to even encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over
   the network via SNMP.  These are the tables and objects and their
   sensitivity/vulnerability:

   The isnsDdsMemberTable contains information about which Discovery
   Domains may be enabled at the same time.

   The isnsDdTable contains information about Discovery Domains,
   containing storage nodes with an ability to communicate and exchange
   storage data.

   The isnsDdIscsiMemberTable indicates which iSCSI nodes are contained
   in which Discovery Domains.

   The isnsDdPortalMemberTable indicates which iSCSI portals are
   contained in which Discovery Domains.

   The isnsDdFcPortMemberTable indicates which iFCP FC N_Ports are
   contained in which Discovery Domains.

   The isnsControlNodeIscsiTable indicates which iSCSI nodes have the
   ability to possibly control an iSNS server.

   The isnsControlNodeFcPortTable indicates which iFCP FC N_Ports have
   the ability to possibly control an iSNS server.

   The above object tables provide information about storage objects
   sessions, and can indicate to a user who is communicating and
   exchanging storage data.

   SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security.
   Even if the network itself is secure (for example by using IPsec),
   even then, there is no control as to who on the secure network is
   allowed to access and GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the objects
   in this MIB module.

Top      Up      ToC       Page 77 
   It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features as
   provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8),
   including full support for the SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms (for
   authentication and privacy).

   Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT
   RECOMMENDED.  Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to
   enable cryptographic security.  It is then a customer/operator
   responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an
   instance of this MIB module is properly configured to give access to
   the objects only to those principals (users) that have legitimate
   rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them.
