This document describes use cases and requirements for a common interface to Network Security Functions (NSF). It considers several use cases, organized in two basic scenarios. In the access network scenario, mobile and residential users access NSF capabilities using their network service provider infrastructure. In the data center scenario customers manage NSFs hosted in the data center infrastructure.
