Technical Summary

YANG is a data modeling language used to model
configuration and state data manipulated by the Network
Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) protocol, NETCONF remote
procedure calls, and NETCONF notifications.  YANG is used
to model the operations and content layers of NETCONF. This
document describes the syntax and semantics of the YANG
language, how the data model defined in a YANG module is
represented in XML, and how NETCONF operations are used to
manipulate the data.

Working Group Summary
