Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] SNMPv3 auth/priv password length
Date: Tue, 17 Mar 2009 08:33:30 +0100

I checked with Version 1.0.6 and there the SNMPv3 auth/priv password length check is still active.
I would appreciate  removing the check as it eases the test of SNMPv3 capable devices which use auth/priv passwords < 8 chars. Such devices definitely exist on the market.
