I didn't read it like you did. It seemed to me that Juan wanted a tool
that lists some info retrieved via SNMP Gets. With that list we would
approach management, showing that you can query interface tables, etc,
with a community string of "public".

I didn't think that he wanted to "break into" and systems, or otherwise
"pentest" it (even though he used that word in his request. Improper use
of "pentest" in my book).

I don't think he needs management approval or a JOOJF card to just list
some stuff with snmpwalk. After all, the information is "public", right?

As long as he doesn't circumvent counter-measures he should be fine.
After all, he is the one responsible for security in his company. He
would be one handing out the JOOJF cards ;)
