2.0.3 Draft charter (Toerless) 13-Feb-2019 Proposed 2nd Charter for ANIMA Working Group The Autonomic Networking Integrated Model and Approach (ANIMA) working group develops and maintains specifications and documentation for interoperable protocols and procedures for automated network management and control of networks that are developed, built and operated by professionals. The vision is a network that configures, heals, optimizes and protects itself. The strategy is the incremental introduction of components to smoothly evolve existing and new networks accordingly. ANIMA work will rely on the framework described in draft-ietf-anima-reference-model. Work not related to this framework is welcome for review, but WG adoption of such work requires explicit rechartering. The three areas of the framework are (1) the Autonomic Networking Infrastructure (ANI), (2) Autonomic Functions (AF) built from software modules called Autonomic Service Agents (ASA) and (3) Intent. The ANI is specified through prior ANIMA work. It is composed of the Autonomic Control Plane (ACP), Bootstrap over Secure Key Infrastructures (BRSKI) including Vouchers, and the Generic Autonomic Signaling Protocol (GRASP). ANIMA will work on closing gaps and extended ANI and its components. ANIMA will start to define AF to enable service automation in networks; it will also work on generic aspects of ASA including design guidelines and lifecycle management including coordination and dependency management. ANIMA will not work on Intent or machine learning and other AI techniques without explicit rechartering. ANIMA will coordinate with other IETF and IRTF groups. It will rely on NMRG to define the next steps for Intent. Acceptance of work items by the WG will be scheduled/throttled so that contributors can target them to enter WG last call after not more than 4 IETF meeting cycles. Work items expected to take longer are subject to AD approval. Proposed work items include but are not limited to: Defining the domain boundary, membership of the domain Structure, life cycle, roles, authorization and coordination of autonomic service agents Integration with Network Operations Centers (NOCs) and reporting mechanisms Information and Service distribution within an autonomic network Interaction with YANG-based mechanisms Additional generic use cases such as resource management or SLA assurance ANI OAMP interfaces (Operations, Administration, Management, Provisioning), e.g. YANG models ANI deployment structure (virtualization, compounding) Variations of Voucher formats BRSKI/Bootstrap protocol aspects (different proxies, extensions for wireless) GRASP extensions for common use cases (e.g. bulk transfer, DNS-SD interworking) Autonomic discovery of NOC services Autonomic Slice Management and Autonomic SLA management. Design and Implementer guidelines for ASAs, ASA Lifecycle management, ASA coordination/dependency resolution.
