You can configure a data source to use the SNMPv3 connector to receive SNMPv3 events.

The SNMPv3 connector is a passive inbound connector.

The following table describes the connector-specific parameters for the SNMPv3 connector:
Table 1. SNMPv3 connector parameters
Parameter Description
Connector type SNMPv3
Data source identifier

Type a unique name for the data source.

Authentication Protocol The algorithm that you want to use to authenticate SNMPv3 traps:
  • SHA uses Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) as your authentication protocol.
  • MD5 uses Message Digest 5 (MD5) as your authentication protocol.
Authentication Password The password to authenticate SNMPv3. Your authentication password must include a minimum of 8 characters.
Decryption Protocol Select the algorithm that you want to use to decrypt the SNMPv3 traps.
  • DES
  • AES128
  • AES192
  • AES256
Note: If you select AES192 or AES256 as your decryption algorithm, you must install the Java™ Cryptography Extension. For more information about installing the Java Cryptography Extension on McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, see Installing the Java Cryptography Extension.
Decryption Password The password to decrypt SNMPv3 traps. Your decryption password must include a minimum of 8 characters.
User The user name that was used to configure SNMPv3 on your appliance
Include OIDs in Event Payload Specifies that the SNMP event payload is constructed by using name-value pairs instead of the standard event payload format. When you select specific data sources from the Data source types list, OIDs in the event payload are required for processing SNMPv2 or SNMPv3 events.
Important: You must include OIDs in the event payload for processing SNMPv3 events for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.
