The Jasmin Project
A Script-MIB Implementation

The Distributed Management working group (DISMAN) of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has developed a standard for distributing and invoking network management scripts. This specification has been published as RFC 2592 in May 1999.

Jasmin is a joint project between the Technical University of Braunschweig and NEC C&C Research Laboratories to evaluate and enhance this standard by providing an implementation and studying the implementation with distributed network management applications.

The implementation supports multiple languages and runtime systems. A script MIB extensibility protocol (SMX) allows to plugin additional runtime systems. The SMX protocol definition has been published as RFC 2593 in May 1999. Two runtime systems have been implemented in this project: One is based on the Java virtual machine and another one support Tcl. Appropriate security mechansims are provided in order to protect the system executing management scripts as well as the network managed by the management scripts.
