  Technical Objective Formats for the Autonomic Network Infrastructure
                draft-carpenter-anima-ani-objectives-01

Abstract

   This document defines the formats of several technical objectives for
   the Generic Autonomic Signaling Protocol (GRASP) used by components
   of the Autonomic Networking Infrastructure outlined in the ANIMA
   reference model.  It also covers other initial use cases for
   Autonomic Networking.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines several technical objectives for use with for
   the Generic Autonomic Signaling Protocol (GRASP)
   [I-D.ietf-anima-grasp].  They are intended for use by corresponding
   Autonomic Service Agents (ASAs) that support infrastructure
   components of the Autonomic Network Infrastructure (ANI) outlined in
   the ANIMA reference model [I-D.ietf-anima-reference-model].  Also
   other early use cases are in scope.

   Note: This draft is posted to allow systematic discussion of the
   various objectives in a consistent way.  It is quite probable that
   rather than this being published as an RFC, the various objective
   definitions will be incorporated directly in the relevant
   specifications.

   The reference model identifies several infrastructure components that
   will fit together to form the ANI, and other early use cases for
   ANIMA are also considered:

      Secure Bootstrap.
