Section 8.2 says:

Of course, it is important that users deploying multi-lingual systems
with insecure protocols exercise sufficient due diligence to insure
that configurations limit access via SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c
appropriately, in keeping with the organization’s security policy,
just as they should carefully limit access granted via SNMPv3 with a
security level of no authentication and no privacy which is roughly
equivalent from a security point of view.

It should say:

Of course, it is important that users deploying multi-lingual systems
with insecure protocols exercise sufficient due diligence to ensure
that configurations limit access via SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c
appropriately, in keeping with the organization’s security policy,
just as they should carefully limit access granted via SNMPv3 with a
security level of no authentication and no privacy which is roughly

Notes:

The sentence used "insure" when it should have used "ensure".
