William Stallings' "SNMP, SNMPv2, SNMPv3, and RMON 1 and 2" has a
pretty good chapter on SNMPv3. The current (3rd) edition is from
early 1999, so it doesn't have up-to-date RFC references and such, but
the contents are mostly still valid. The level of detail is
sufficient to be useful for implementation (of course the RFCs are the
authoritative source of information...), and certainly more than
sufficient for understanding the concepts underlying SNMPv3's security
mechanisms (USM). An article on SNMPv3 by Stallings also appeared in
the Internet Protocol Journal in 1998:
David Zeltserman's "A Practical Guide to SNMPv3 and Network
Management" got some very good user reviews on Amazon.com, but I

The Simple Times
has many articles about SNMPv3, but I don't know whether they are
useful for you. Uri Blumenthal's and Bert Wijnen's "Security Features
is a good overview of the design of SNMPv3's most important new
I keep a list of references (books and RFCs) on SNMP under
- I'm sure there are other such lists.
Hope this helps,
