This module provides a partial coverage of the SoC conditions for SNMP under Linux.

Module Description

This module can install and configure SNMP on a Linux system.

Fullfilled Requirements

  • 3.45/1 SNMP must be used in version 3.
    • older version of SNMP do not support secure authentification mechanisms which correspond to today's state of technology
  • 3.45/2 The SNMP Server has to prevent the usage of a too small length of the HMAC
    • many current applications allow the SNMP client to set the length of the HMAC on their own - this represents a potential security vulnerability
  • 3.45/3 Predefined authentication characteristics have to be changed
    • third-party authentication features, such as passwords or cryptographic keys, can not be trusted.
  • 3.45/4 Accounts must be protected against unauthorized use by using at least one authentication feature (token, passwords, PIN's)
  • 3.45/5 When using passwords for authentication, they have to be at least 8 characters long and must include three of the following character types:
    • lowercase letters
    • uppercase letters
    • digits
    • special character
  • 3.45/6 Authentication and encryption must be enabled depending on the protection requirements of the data
  • 3.45/7 Protective information must not be included in files, issues and messages that are accessible to unauthorized users
  • 3.45/8 If customers are contractually granted SNMP access to components managed by the DTAG, it must bed ensured that they are read-only and no vulnerable data of the DTAG can be queried

Possible deviations

  • 3.45/1, 3.45/6 Can be bypassed with the parameter $v2_enabled = true
  • 3.45/5 Can be bypassed with the parameter$enforce_password_security = false


The requirement 3.45/2 can not be fulfilled configuratively. It refers to an old bug, which is resolved in the current versions (Net-SNMP versions,,,, and UCD-SNMP


  • By using this module, SNMP v1 and v2 will be deactivated and v3 activated using a password and a passphrase.
  • This module has dependencies to puppetlabs/stdlib and puppetlabs/concat


  • The requirements come from the technical safety requirements 3_45_SNMP.pdf of the PSA procedure


  • This module was tested with CentOS6 and CentOS7


  • Please document changes withing the module using git commits
  • Execution of tests: bundler install, bundler exec rake
