OID handling and SNMP dissector rewrite
The usability objective of this is to be able to filter on values of SNMP variables like: SNMPv2-MIB.sysUpTime == 274602. The other reason behind this work is not to have a dependency on NET-SNMP which depends on the non-GPL compatible OpenSSL. We'll be using libsmi instead.
MUST be done before the next release, SHOULD be there, MIGHT be there, It's being DONE already!
OctetString Indexes (both implied and not) -- Some RMON tables use them, capture files are welcome
willfully malformed oids and stuff like that
review the PROTOS files in SampleCaptures
It should only warn, (not inhibit decoding) if expects a different integer type (like Integer32 [APPLICATION 2], Timeticks [APPLICATION 3], or Counter32 [APPLICATION 1] and gets an Integer instead [UNIVERSAL 2] (and vice versa). Same for an Opaque,Nsap, IpAddr vs Octetstring as far as the length allow decoding.
Implement other types off indexing (AGREGATE, ...) these show the following error: The COLUMS's parent is not a ROW. This is a BUG! please contact the wireshark developers.
Some OIds have a -2 hfid value, that means they are unregistered, do not use it.
Document (Always remember C is understood by compilers and programmers, people prefers english) !!!!
- the changes (where?)
- and add the smi_* tables to the doocbook files
new SNMP dissector shows convoluted tree (now it is a little less convoluted )
SNMP dissector shows a wrong Timestamp when the value is negative (I Won't get it fixed)
SNMP Object Names not displayed in the info column (see bellow)
regenerate the dissector with -T and -X
add trap oids to COL_INFO
add oids to COL_INFO
get the snmp.variable_oid dissector table back to life.
manage columns as well as scalars
put complete information in the labels of the VarBind Items
the mapping of OID->attribute in COPS is still incomplete
we are missing the PIBs (like MIBs but for COPS) in the libsmi zipfile
- fuzz testing
- willfully malformed oids and stuff like that
There are oids being registered with long names like "itu-t(0) identified-organization(4) etsi(0) mobileDomain(0) gsm-Network(1) map-ac(0) networkLocUp(1) version3(3)"
get "the whole thing"tm into nsis
get the mibs into nsis
get the pibs into nsis
protect the code from re-loading MIBS for modules that were already loaded. A Hard one as it would need to "pre-parse" the modules before asking libsmi to load them. I think I'll Document the potential issues and their symptoms instead.
There are some OIDs that attempt to be registered with "funky" oid strings "dop.agreement.188.8.131.52" or "x411.extension-attribute.27" which are not resolvable (these are in #.REGISTER sections in asn2wrs) (x411 and dop are resolved -- StigBjørlykke)
Come up with a list of default MIBs and PIBs (there was a /*comment*/ in the snmp code (now gone with the surrounding code) saying that we should not, should we?)
add libsmi to autoconf
./configure's --with-libsmi does not take a location as argument, run like: env LDFLAGS='-lsmi -L/base/lib' CFLAGS=-I/base/include ./configure [options]
remove net-snmp from autoconf
add a menu item or preference setting for the smi_modules UAT
add a link (button) for the tables in SNMP and COPS preference tabs
Some OIDs (not from explicitly included MIBs) are added more than once during protocol registration
implement "ALL" modules, i.e. implement file-name globing and use it on libsmi's MIB/PIB path.
Some macros in oids.h are used to replace the obsoleted oid-related calls in oid_resolv.h to_str.h and format-oid.h, it would be nice to actually rewrite the invocations.
have other users of oid_resolv.h get to use the new functions in oids.h
add the following MIBs and PIBs to the zipfile
PIBs included in libsmi
