Network devices must only allow SNMP access from addresses belonging to the management network.
Detailed information about the network is sent across the network via SNMP. If this information is discovered by attackers it could be used to trace the network, show the networks topology, and possibly gain access to network devices.
Configure the network devices to only allow SNMP access from only addresses belonging to the management network.
Review the device configuration and verify it is configured to only allow SNMP access from addresses belonging to the management network. If the device is not configured to filter SNMP from the management network only, this is a finding.
