Definition of SNMP
SNMP is the simple network management protocol. It is used
by network management frameworks to manage and monitor network
devices, such as hubs and routers. Some computer systems also
respond to SNMP queries.
Early versions of SNMP used trivial and ineffective security measures,
so created significant Security Exploit's.
Improper implementation of SNMP services on a given system can cause
significant Security weaknesses.
