Hello, currently SNMP supports only AES-128 Encryption. AES-192 and AES-256 are still not supported based on the Manual.

Hello Jonathan, we were doing a research with our developers. They mentioned we're still using an older version of this library, so there is no support for the authentication methods you mentioned at the moment.

Hello, Most of our customers are using Cisco devices and they want to use the default AES-256 encryption. Is there a timeline for implementing AES-256 support? Thanks!
