Technical Summary

  This document provides a YANG data model [RFC6020][RFC7950] that defines the capabilities of NSFs to centrally manage the capabilities of those security devices. The security devices can register their own capabilities into a Network Operator Management (Mgmt) System (i.e., Security Controller) with this YANG data model through the registration interface [RFC8329]. With the capabilities of those security devices maintained centrally, those security devices can be easily managed [RFC8329]. This YANG data model is based on the information model for I2NSF NSF capabilities [draft-ietf-i2nsf-capability].

Working Group Summary

This document was one of the milestones for the I2NSF WG. The document went through long period discussions within the I2NSF WG and with NETMOD WG participants. Changes were made to utilize the modules that are already specified by draft-ietf-netmod-acl-model as much as possible.   The document then went through the YANG Doctor review process and received good comments/feedback which was addressed by the authors. 

Document Quality

The YANG module itself validates without any warnings, and have passed YANG Doctor Review. 

There have been Hackathon and open source implementation for the YANG model specified by this document. In addition, multiple vendors on the co-author list all indicated that they plan to implement.
