InterWorking Labs releases a new version of the SilverCreek SNMP software for finding and fixing SNMP compliance problems and bugs in SNMP agent implementations.

SilverCreek, the SNMP Test Suite

Past News Releases


InterWorking Labs, developers of network emulation and protocol testing products to improve the quality and operation of mobile, cloud, and wide area networks, today announced the newest version of SilverCreek, the authoritative SNMP Test Suite.

SilverCreek verifies the robustness of network devices in the face of SNMP vulnerabilities and verifies the correct operation of SNMP agents and their standard and private MIBS.

Detect and Diagnose Implementation Errors
Engineers attempt to find and fix SNMP compliance problems by writing simple scripts that issue an SNMP command. When the agent responds, the engineer believes his test succeeded.

Unfortunately, this does not prove compliance because it does not account for boundary conditions, pathological packets and a wide range of other phenomenon. Worse, a human expert is required to judge the response requiring hundreds of hours -- a waste of resources!    

Use SilverCreek, the SNMP Test Suite to automatically check for vulnerabilities to attacks and generate a report.

Application Features
The winter release of SilverCreek SNMP Test Suite combines special requests and feedback from InterWorking Labs' clientele with determinations from IWL's SNMP Advisory Board. Popular enhancements and newest features include:

Automatically test the setting of multiple variables in tables simultaneously
Addition of 170 new tests for RFC3289 (DIFFSERV-MIB) tables
Options for handling/ignoring deprecated, dynamic, and obsolete variables
Improved saving of test results in the 'txt' format
Command changes to accept a list argument for object names similar to the Scotty library
New "Poll Counter" tool for alerting value drops in rows
More than 150 new tests such as syntax, counter and interface tests using Scapy
MIB browser and MIB walker now mark the row in red color if MIB walking is terminated unexpectedly by a lexicographical order error
Suppression of known errors by using new, advanced configuration parameters

The latest SilverCreek release is available now for all customers with annual maintenance agreements.

Industry Leadership and Support
SilverCreek is the only authoritative SNMP tester backed by an Advisory Board of SNMP Experts who arbitrate disputes, clarify the intent of the RFCs, provide assurances and industry guidance. The IWL SNMP Advisory Board is known for advisory warnings, such as a major change in direction with the IPv6 MIBs and a ruling on SNMPInASNParseErrs.

The SNMP experts at InterWorking Labs continue to provide premium products and services such as consultations on product quality issues to IT professionals, developers, network managers, software protocol implementors, and network hardware manufactures worldwide.

Evaluations and webinars on SilverCreek's capabilities, SNMP API mapping, SNMP MIB tools, SNMP general tools, Tcl test scripts, RMON, DOCSIS, and counters and interfaces are available by contacting InterWorking Labs.
