Advanced Encryption Standard

SNMPv3 encryption using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm is supported only if the host platform net-snmp library supports it.

You can determine whether your platform supports AES by using the following test:

$ snmpwalk -x AES 2>&1 | head -1

If the response is:

"Invalid privacy protocol specified after -x flag: AES"

then your platform does not support AES encryption for SNMPv3.

If the response is:

"No hostname specified."

Then your platform supports AES.
