An SNMP evasion was illustrated in the program SideStep by Robert
Graham.  http://www.robertgraham.com/tmp/sidestep.html

The evasion had to do with the way you could encode ASN.1 object
identifiers using the extended format (by setting the high order bit).

For more information, download SideStep, run the SNMP evasion and look
at it using ethereal.  You'll find what you need there.  :)

That was in regards to some development I did on the Dragon IDS, I don't
believe anything was ever published.
