RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 1. Introduction This document describes an SNMP Management Information Base (MIB) to provide for the management of in-line post-processing in a fashion that is currently provided for printers, using the Printer MIB [RFC3805]. The Printer Finishing MIB includes the following features: - Provides the status of the finishing device. - Queries and controls the features and configuration of the finishing device. - Enables and disables the finishing processes. - Allows unsolicited status from the finishing device. The Finisher MIB is defined as an extension of the Printer MIB [RFC3805] and it is expected that the information defined in this document will be incorporated into a future update of the Printer MIB. 1.1. Scope This document provides a robust set of finishing devices, features, and functions, based upon today's state of the art of in-line finishing. Since finishing typically accompanies higher speed network printers and copiers, in contrast to simple desktop devices, no attempt is made to limit the scope to "bare minimum". On the other hand, the Printer Finishing MIB does not duplicate the production mail preparation, custom insertion, franking, and reprints that are covered by the DMTF Large Mailing Operations standard [LMO]. Information supplied by the Printer Finishing MIB may be utilized by printer and finisher management applications engaged in monitoring status and managing configuration, and also used by print and finishing submission applications which are engaged in: - print-job-level finishing processes that are applied to a complete print job, - document-level finishing processes that are applied individually to each document in the print job, - document-level finishing processes that are applied to a selected document in the print job. Note that not all combinations of finishing processes are permitted. Compatible combinations of finishing processes are implementation specific. The MIB allows invalid combinations to be identified. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 3]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119]. 1.2. Rational The Printer MIB [RFC3805] is now successfully deployed in a large segment of the network printer market. SNMP and/or HTTP enabled printers and software management applications are growing in numbers. There is an increase in the availability of network printers and copiers that include in-line finishing processes. Thus a well defined and ordered set of finishing objects is now necessary for printer management. The printer model defined in the Printer MIB includes finishing processes and the MIB was designed to later incorporate finisher objects or to be referenced by a future Finisher MIB. 1.3. The Internet-Standard Management Framework For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of RFC 3410 [RFC3410]. Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580]. 1.4. Read-Write Objects Some objects in the Finisher MIB reflect the existence or amount of a given resource within the finisher. Some examples of such resources are the size and number of sheets in an inserter tray or the existence of certain finisher options. Some finishers have automatic sensors for these resources. Most finishers lack sensors for every property of every resource. The management application is allowed to write into objects that hold descriptive or existence values for finishers that cannot sense these values. The ability to change the value of a read-write object may depend on the implementation of the agent. Many objects in the MIB are given read-write access, but an implementation might only permit a management application to change Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 4]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 the value if the finisher can not sense the value itself. Note that even though some objects explicitly state the behavior of conditional ability to change values, any read-write object may act this way. Generally, an object is given read-write access in the Finisher MIB specification if: 1. The object involves installation of a resource that some finishers cannot themselves detect. Therefore, external means are needed to inform the device of the installation. (Here external means include using the operator console, or remote management application) and 2. The finisher will behave differently if the installation of the resource is reported than if the installation were not reported; that is, the object is not to be used as a place to put information not used by the finisher, i.e., not a "sticky-note". Another way of saying this is that the finisher believes that information given it and acts as if the information were true. 3. The finisher may get hints that it may not know about the existence or properties of certain resources. For example, a paper tray may be removed and re-inserted. When this removal and insertion happens, the finisher may either assume that a property, such as the size of paper in the tray, has not changed or the finisher may change the value of the associated object to "unknown", as might be done for the amount of paper in the tray. As long as the finisher acts according to the value in the object either strategy is acceptable. 4. It is an implementation-specific matter as to whether or not MIB object values are persistent across power cycles or cold starts. 2. Terminology Where appropriate, the Printer Finishing MIB will conform to the terminology, syntax, and semantics from the DMTF Large Mailing Operations standard [LMO], the Internet Printing Protocol [RFC2911], and/or the ISO Document Printing Application [DPA]. 2.1. General Terminology Finisher Input: An input tray on the finisher and not otherwise associated with the printer. An example of a finisher input is a tray that holds finishing "inserts".

Because processing is in-line, the finisher outputs are a direct extension of the set of printer outputs. Media Orientation: All Finishing Processes are defined relative to a portrait orientation of the medium, regardless of the orientation of the printed image or the direction of feed. The 'X' and 'Y' axis, therefore, will always reference the medium as shown in figures 1 and 2, with the 'X' axis always along the short edge of the medium. All edges and corners are also defined with the medium orientation as shown using the syntax top, bottom, left, and right. Thus the bottom edge of the medium is at Y = 0, the left edge is at X = 0, and the bottom right corner is at (X2,0) as shown in the figure 1 and at (X3,0) as shown in figure 2. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 7]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 Finishing: Defined by DPA as an operation on a document following the completion of the image process. Finishing processes defined within this document are those applied to one or more instances of rectangular paper sheet media. Finishing Process: Defined by DPA as an operation applied by a machine such as trimming a document, folding the sheets in a document, and applying a binding to a document. Finishing Specification: Defined by DPA as the specific sequence of operations for a serial combination of finishing processes. The exact sequential order of the processes, in many cases, is critical to the obtaining the desired result. For example, a folding operation followed by trimming could provide a very different result than if the trimming was followed by the folding. Finishing Process Parameters: This parameter set is used to create a detailed definition of the finishing process. Generic Finishing Process Parameters are applicable to any Finishing Specification. - Head Mechanism: Defined by DPA as the physical mechanism that is used to perform a finishing process. The head position may be fixed or variable depending upon the capabilities of the device. - Reference Edge: Defined by DPA as the edge of the document relative to the axis to which the finishing process is applied. The edge of the medium defined to be the Reference Edge may be either the 'X' or the 'Y' axis, depending upon the finishing process to be performed. Note that the Reference Edge may change from one finishing process to another for one of two reasons. First, a subsequent process may require a different Reference Edge. Second, the actual dimensions of the document may change, for example as a result of a folding or a trimming operation. - Jog Edge: Defined by DPA as one of the two edges that is perpendicular to the Reference Edge. Specifying the Jog Edge parameter indicates the edges of all sheets which correspond to the Jog Edge are aligned. - Finishing Process Axis: Defined by DPA as the axis which some finishing processes are applied to or referenced from by the Head Mechanism. Examples are the axis for a fold process or the axis for a punch process. - Head Locations: Defined by DPA as the position of the Heads on the Finishing Process Axis. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 8]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 - Finishing Process Offset: The offset from the Reference Edge to the Finishing Process Axis at which the finishing process takes place or is applied. 2.2. Process Specific Terminology FOLDING: Z Fold: A fold in which two folds are placed in the sheet in opposite directions. The first fold is located at 25% of the sheet length, and the second is located at 50% of the sheet length (i.e., the center of the sheet). Z Folding is often used on 11x17 inch or A3 size sheets, when they are included in sets containing 8.5x11 inch or A4 size sheets. Half Fold: To fold a sheet in half so that one of the resulting dimensions are exactly half the original sheet. Often used for signatures or booklets. Letter Fold: Folding a sheet roughly in thirds. Usually performed on 8.5x11 inch or A4 size sheets for insertion into an envelope. Signature: The process by which images are placed on a large sheet of paper in correct panel areas and in the proper orientation such that when the sheet is folded it will produce a booklet with each page in the proper order and orientation. BINDING: Adhesive Binding: A method of attaching sheets together to form a book or booklet using glue or adhesive. Some adhesive binding methods apply the glue to sheets individually, before merging them together for form a book, but most methods involve the application of adhesive to an entire book of sheets. Comb Binding: A method of binding in which a series of small rectangular holes is placed along the bind edge of the sheets. The sheets are then held together using a tube shaped plastic binding strip with comb like fingers that fit through the holes in the sheets. Spiral Binding: Sometimes referred to as wire binding, this binding method is a mechanical bind in which the individual leaves are held together by a wire or plastic spiral that is fed through small holes in the paper binding edge. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 9]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 Padding: Applying a non-penetrating adhesive to the edge of a stack of sheets such that the sheets can be easily peeled off one at a time. Frequently used for forms. Velo Binding: A bind formed by punching holes into the edge of the sheets, placing a two piece plastic strip (one side formed with plastic pins that pass through the holes) along the edge and then staking the two pieces together. Perfect Binding: A method of binding in which all pages are cut and roughed up at the back or binding edge and held together by an adhesive. Tape Binding: The act of placing tape over the bind edge of a set. Sometimes contains adhesive to provide a functional bind to the set, and sometimes done for decorative purposes on a set that has been edge stapled. SLITTING/CUTTING/TRIMMING: Trim: To cut the edges of a sheet or set of sheets. Face Trim: To cut the edges of a set of sheets on a booklet of sheets that have been folded to eliminate the "creep" or edge shingling that results from the folding process. Gutter Trim: To cut a larger sheet into smaller sheets eliminating the gutter between adjacent images. This operation requires a minimum of two cuts for each gutter. Tab Cutting: The act of cutting the edge of a sheet to form an index tab, thereby allowing quick identification and access. The external tabs are sequentially placed along the book edge for visibility and ease of grasping. Perforating: The act of cutting a series of very small, closely spaced holes or slots into a sheet to allow for ease of separation of a portion of the sheet. Sometimes also used to ease bending/hinging of heavy weight papers. Scoring: A means of applying small linear grooves or impressions along a sheet to allow easy folding. Often used on heavy weight sheets and book covers. Slitting: The action of cutting apart a large sheet to form smaller sheets. Usually done using a sharp circular roll system. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 10]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 STITCHING/STAPLING: Staple: The process of binding a set of sheets together using a 'U' shaped piece of metal wire that is punched through the set. The ends of the metal staple are then bent over, or 'clinched' to hold the staple in place. Technically the term 'stapler' refers to devices that use pre-cut metal staples, but the term is also commonly used to refer to devices that use wire spools and then cut/form the staple. (see the definition of Stitch) Stitch: The process of binding a set of sheets together using a 'U' shaped piece of metal wire that is punched through the set. The wire used to form the staple is cut and formed into a 'U' shape in the stitcher head, and the staple 'leg' length is often varied depending on the number of sheets to be bound together. The ends of the metal staple are bent over, or 'clinched' to hold the staple in place. Stitching can also refer to the process of sewing the edges of the signatures of a book together. Saddle Stitch: The process of stapling a set along its center line as part of a booklet making process. Usually 2 or 3 staples are used. Dual Stapling: The process of placing 2 staples along the bind edge of a set. The staples are typically located at 25% and 75% of the length of the bind edge. Although dual stapling is often performed on the long edge of a set, legal documents are frequently dual stapled along the top, or short edge of the set. Triple Stapling: Same as above, but using 3 staples along the bind edge, and usually applies to the long edge only. WRAPPING: Shrink Wrap: A wrap of thin plastic which when heated will shrink and wrap tightly around the stack thus preparing it for shipment. BANDING: Band Wrap: Bundling a finished stack to prepare for shipment. Also known as Strap Wrap. ROTATING: Sheet Rotator: A device that rotates each sheet as received from the Media Path to the proper orientation for the finisher processing. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 11]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 3. Finisher Subunits Integrated Into The Printer Model The Printer Finisher Device subunits receive media from one or more Printer Media Path subunits and deliver the media to one or more Printer Output subunits after the completion of the finishing processes. The Printer Model, as described in the Printer MIB [RFC3805], is modified adding the finisher subunit(s) and finisher supplies between the media path and output subunits as follows: +----------+ +----------+ | | Marker | | | Supplies |-+ +----------+ \ +-----+ \ +------+ +--------+ +------+ | | \| | | | | | +-----+ | +-----+ +------+ | +------+ +--------+ | +------+ | |Input|-+ +------+| |Marker|-+ +------+| |Finisher|-+ |Output|-+ | |===>| |+<==>| |<==>| |+==>| |===>| | +-----+ +-+ +-+ +------+ +-+ +-+ +--------+ +------+ \ | || | || \ \ | || | || \ \ | || | || +----------+ +-------+ | |+--------------------| || | Finisher |-+ | | | +---------------------+ || | Supplies | | +-------+ | | Media Path |+ +----------+ | | Media |-+ +---------------------------+ | | |(opt.) | +----------+ +-------+ 4. Finishing Specifications The Finisher MIB is able to provide most of the information that is required to generate a Finishing Specification. This includes; 1. Finishing operations that can be performed on media that are associated with a specific printer media path and output subunit. 2. Combinations of operations that cannot be performed. 3. The location of the operation on the medium, if applicable. 4. The physical characteristics of the result of the operation. For example, the size and shape of a punched hole, or if a fold operation creates a letter fold or a "Z" fold. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 12]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 The Finisher MIB permits an agent to describe the order that operations can be performed. 4.1. Multiple finDeviceTable Entries Each finishing operation supported by the printer is represented by one or more entries in the finDeviceTable. Each entry in this table defines a "logical" finishing device, since the function of several table entries may be performed by a single finisher mechanism. Multiple entries may also exist in the table as a result of the existence of multiple finisher mechanisms that perform the same type of operation. One example of possible multiple entries for a single finisher device, is a hole punch operation that creates more than one hole. This could be performed using a single die punch that moves to each required position or a multi-die punch that simultaneously creates all holes. In either case, each defined hole position may be defined as a separate table entry. In both cases, if the punch positions can be individually selected, a table entry for each position would be necessary. For the multi-die punch, each head mechanism may have a different hole pattern or size. If these differences are to be properly disclosed, a table entry for each head mechanism would be required. 4.2. Implicit Parameters Finishing operations that are specified by an enum define a standard operation and in many cases an implicit set of physical characteristics is to be included when specifying the enum. If explicit values for these characteristics are not provided in the attributes table, the values defined in this section are to be implied. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 13]

Exact tolerances should be site defined. 5. The Attribute Mechanism Attributes provide a function similar to information objects, except that attributes are identified by an enum, instead of an OID. Thus new attributes may be registered without requiring a change to the MIB. In addition, an implementation that does not have the functionality represented by the attribute can omit the attribute entirely, rather than having to return a distinguished value. The agent is free to create an attribute in the Attribute Table as soon as the agent is aware of the value of the attribute. The agent materializes finishing subunit attributes in a four-indexed finDeviceAttributeTable: 1. hrDeviceIndex - which device in the host 2. finDeviceIndex - which finisher subunit in the printer device 3. finDeviceAttributeTypeIndex - which attribute 4. finDeviceAttributeInstanceIndex - which attribute instance for those attributes that can have multiple values per finishing subunit. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 15]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 5.1. Conformance of Attribute Implementation An agent SHALL implement any attribute if (1) the device supports the functionality represented by the attribute and (2) the information is available to the agent. The agent MAY create the attribute row in the finDeviceAttributeTable when the information is available or MAY create the row earlier with the designated 'unknown' value appropriate for that attribute. See next section. If the device does not implement or does not provide access to the information about an attribute, the agent SHOULD NOT create the corresponding row in the finDeviceAttributeTable. 5.2. Useful, 'Unknown', and 'Other' Values for Objects and Attributes Some attributes have a 'useful' Integer32 value, some have a 'useful' OCTET STRING value, some MAY have either or both depending on implementation, and some MUST have both. See the finDeviceAttributeTypeTC textual convention for the specification of each attribute. NOTE: In some instances, objects with a MAX-ACCESS of read-write will result in an SNMPv1 error or SNMPv2 exception during a write operation. The administrative security policy may restrict a class of users to read-only or, more importantly, the implementation may implement a subset of read-write objects as read-only. This should be expected to be the case for a device that can properly sense the value of an object and does not want the value to be externally modified. In general, values for objects and attributes have been chosen so that a management application will be able to determine whether a 'useful', 'unknown', or 'other' value is available. When a useful value is not available for an object that agent SHALL return a zero- length string for octet strings, the value 'unknown(2)' for enums, a '0' value for an object that represents an index in another table, and a value '-2' for counting integers. Since each attribute is represented by a row consisting of both the finDeviceAttributeValueAsInteger and finDeviceAttributeValueAsOctets MANDATORY objects, SNMP requires that the agent SHALL always create an attribute row with both objects specified. However, for most attributes the agent SHALL return a "useful" value for one of the objects and SHALL return the 'other' value for the other object. For integer only attributes, the agent SHALL always return a zero-length string value for the finDeviceAttributeValueAsOctets object. For octet string only attributes, the agent SHALL always return a '-1' value for the finDeviceAttributeValueAsInteger object. Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 16]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 5.3. Data Sub-types and Attribute Naming Conventions Many attributes are sub-typed to give a more specific data type than Integer32 or OCTET STRING. The data sub-type of each attribute is indicated on the first line(s) of the description. Some attributes have several different data sub-type representations. When an attribute has both an Integer32 data sub-type and an OCTET STRING data sub-type, the attribute can be represented in a single row in the finDeviceAttributeTable. In this case, the data sub-type name is not included as the last part of the name of the attribute. When the data sub-types cannot be represented by a single row in the finDeviceAttributeTable, each such representation is considered a separate attribute and is assigned a separate name and enum value. For these attributes, the name of the data sub-type is the last part of the name of the attribute. 5.4. Single-Value (Row) Versus Multi-Value (MULTI-ROW) Attributes Most attributes shall have only one row per finishing subunit. However, a few attributes can have multiple values per finishing subunit, where each value is a separate row in the finDeviceAttributeTable. Unless indicated with 'MULTI-ROW:' in the finDeviceAttributeTypeTC description, an agent SHALL ensure that each attribute occurs only once in the finDeviceAttributeTable for a finishing subunit. Most of the 'MULTI-ROW' attributes do not allow duplicate values, i.e., the agent SHALL ensure that each value occurs only once for a finishing subunit. Only if the specification of the 'MULTI-ROW' attribute also says "There is no restriction on the same xxx occurring in multiple rows" can the agent allow duplicate values to occur for a single finishing subunit. 5.5. Linked MUTI-ROW Values Some MULTI-ROW attributes are intended to go together. Thus a set of value instances represent a single instance. For example, the puncher attributes indicate the location, maximum size, minimum size and shape of the various holes that the puncher can produce. So the first set of values could represent one kind of hole, and the second set another kind of hole, etc. 5.6. Index Value Attributes A number of attributes are indexes in other tables. Such attribute names end with the word 'Index'. If the agent has not (yet) assigned an index value for a particular index attribute for a finishing subunit, the agent shall either: (1) return the value 0 or (2) not add this attribute to the finDeviceAttributeTable until the index Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 17]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 value is assigned. In the interests of brevity, the semantics for 0 is specified once here and is not repeated for each index attribute specification and a DEFVAL of 0 is indicated. 5.7. Attribute Specifications This section specifies the set of attributes that are enumerated in finAttributeTypeTC. The data type tag definitions 'INTEGER:' or 'OCTETS', indicate if the attribute can be represented using the object finDeviceAttributeAsInteger or the object finDeviceAttributeAsOctets, respectively. In some cases, a choice between the two data types is possible and for a few attributes both objects may be required at the same time to properly present the value. NOTE - The enum assignments are grouped logically with values assigned in groups of 10, so that additional values may be registered in the future and assigned a value that is part of their logical grouping. Values in the range 2**30 to 2**31-1 are reserved for private or experimental usage. This range corresponds to the same range reserved in IPP. Implementers are warned that use of such values may conflict with other implementations. Implementers are encouraged to request registration of enum values following the procedures in Section 6.1. The attribute types defined at the time of completion of this specification are: finAttributeTypeIndex Data type --------------------- --------- other(1), Integer32 AND/OR OCTET STRING (SIZE(0..63)) INTEGER: and/or OCTETS: An attribute that is not currently approved and registered. A. Generic finisher subunit attributes that apply to all finisher subunit types.

When this condition occurs this attribute SHALL be presented in the attribute tables for both finishing processes that cannot be combined. finNumberOfPositions(15), Integer32 (0..65535) INTEGER: Defines the total number of head positions for this finishing process. Each position many be realized by a unique head mechanism or a single head mechanism may be automatically moved to each position. namedConfiguration(16), OCTET STRING (SIZE(0..63)) OCTETS: Contains an administratively define name to define the finishing specification configured for this device. finMediaTypeRestriction(17), OCTET STRING (SIZE(0..63)) OCTETS: MULTI-ROW: Defines the media type which cannot be combined with the process defined by the finDeviceIndex for this finDeviceAttributeTable instance. Values are the same as defined for finSupplyMediaInputMediaName. finPrinterInputTraySupported(18), Integer32 (0..65535) INTEGER: MULTI-ROW: Defines the value of prtInputIndex corresponding to the printer input tray that can be used with the process defined by the finDeviceIndex for this finDeviceAttributeTable instance. If this attribute is not present, this process can be used with any input tray in the printer. For example, this attribute can indicate the current stapling capabilities for a stapler device for the input trays that depend upon the size and feed orientation. So if there were two letter trays, one with A size and the other with B size, a two position stapler might specify in one row: upper-left and upper-right for the input tray with A size, but only upper-left for the one with B size. finPreviousFinishingOperation(19), Integer32 (0..65535) INTEGER: Defines the finDeviceIndex of the previous finishing process for implementations in which the finishing processes are performed in a prescribed order.

Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 21]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 punchHoleSizeLongDim(81), Integer32 (-2..2147483647) INTEGER: Defines the size of the punched hole in the longest dimension. This dimension is typically measured parallel to either the long edge or the short edge of the media and the longest dimension will always be measured 90 degrees from the shortest dimension. For a symmetrical hole, such as a round or square hole, the shortest and longest dimensions will be identical. The units of measure are defined by the attribute finProcessOffsetUnits. punchHoleSizeShortDim(82), Integer32 (-2..2147483647) INTEGER: Defines the size of the punched hole in the shortest dimension. This dimension is typically measured parallel to either the long edge or the short edge of the media and the shortest dimension will always be measured 90 degrees from the longest dimension.

The units of measure are defined by finProcessOffsetUnits. stackRotation(162) Integer32 (-2..180) INTEGER: Defines the copy-to-copy output stack rotation measured in degrees. The value is the positive copy-to-copy rotation." 6. Enumerations Enumerations (enums) are sets of symbolic values defined for use with one or more objects. Commonly used enumeration sets are assigned a symbolic data type name (textual convention), rather than being specified in the SYNTAX clause of each individual object definition. Textual conventions defined in the Finisher MIB or the companion IANA Finisher MIB are extensible by RFC publication or Designated Expert Review (see 'IANA Considerations' section of this Finisher MIB and the DESCRIPTION clause in MODULE-IDENTITY of IANA Finisher MIB). All of these textual conventions are: a) used more than once in the Finisher MIB itself; or b) imported and used in any other, including vendor private, MIB modules. The Finisher MIB has also defined the following special values for use with objects of the syntax "Integer32" to define conditions that are outside of the normal numeric range: other(-1), unknown(-2), and partial(-3). The 'partial' value means that there is some supply remaining (but the amount is indeterminate) or there is some capacity remaining (but the amount is indeterminate). The Integer32 range field indicates in which objects these special values are valid. 6.1. Registering Additional Enumerated Values The Finisher MIB and the companion IANA Finisher MIB each defines one category of textual convention, according to the process employed to control the addition of new enumerations: Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 23]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 Type 1 - All of the legal values are defined in the Finisher MIB. Additional enumerated values require the publication of a new Finisher MIB. Type 2 - All of the legal values are registered in the IANA Finisher MIB. Additional enumerated values require a Designated Expert Review defined in "Guidelines for Writing an IANA Considerations Section in RFCs" [RFC2434]. The Designated Expert will be selected by the IETF Area Director(s) of the Applications Area. 7.

Security Considerations There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB module with a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write and/or read-create. Such objects may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. The support for SET operations in a non-secure environment without proper protection can have a negative effect on network operations. These are the tables and objects and their sensitivity/vulnerability: finDeviceTable: finDevicePresentOnOff -Possible severe inconvenience finDeviceMaxCapacity -Possible minor inconvenience finDeviceCurrentCapacity -Possible minor inconvenience finSupplyTable: finSupplyMaxCapacity -Possible minor inconvenience Bergman, et al. Informational [Page 49]
RFC 3806 Printer Finishing MIB June 2004 finSupplyCurrentLevel -Possible minor inconvenience finSupplyMediaInputTable finSupplyMediaInputMediaDimFeedDir -Possible severe inconvenience finSupplyMediaInputMediaDimXFeedDir -Possible severe inconvenience finSupplyMediaInputMediaName -Possible Minor inconvenience finSupplyMediaInputName -Possible Minor inconvenience finSupplyMediaInputSecurity -Possible Minor inconvenience finSupplyMediaInputMediaWeight -Possible Minor inconvenience finSupplyMediaInputMediaThickness -Possible Minor inconvenience finSupplyMediaInputMediaType -Possible Minor inconvenience finDeviceAttributeTable finDeviceAttributeValueAsInteger -Possible Minor inconvenience finDeviceAttributeValueAsOctets -Possible Minor inconvenience SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security. Even if the network itself is secure (for example by using IPSec), even then, there is no control as to who on the secure network is allowed to access and GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB module. It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features as provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8), including full support for the SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms (for authentication and privacy). Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT RECOMMENDED. Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to enable cryptographic security. It is then a customer/operator responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an instance of this MIB module is properly configured to give access to the objects only to those principals (users) that have legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them. Where the operational capability of the printing device are especially vulnerable or difficult to administer, certain objects within this MIB have been tagged as READ-ONLY, preventing modification. Further, for all READ-WRITE objects within the MIB, the working group has included specific conformance guidelines stating that vendors are free to implement certain objects as READ-ONLY. This conformance allowance should cover cases where specific vendor vulnerabilities may differ from product to product. (See conformance section with regards to MIN-ACCESS clauses). Bergman, et al.
