CLI tool to export SNMPv3 settings into CSV file

In a situation when NNMi has large number of SNMPv3 settings it is very difficult to perform secret key cleanup to fix post-upgrade or hostname migration issues. Currently out of the box utilities such as nnmconfigexport.ovpl and nnmconfigimport.ovpl do not allow to export and import SNMPv3 settings.

Need to make possible extract SNMPv3 settings with a command line utility into a CSV file which will then make possible to import the settings back using nnmcommload.ovpl command or modified version of nnmconfigimport.ovpl.

Since this might have security implications command-line tool should have options to either of:

  1. encrypt the resulting text file with user-provided symmetric encryption key;
  2. output the result in a password-protected archive, where a user supplies the password.
