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 realise 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 early use cases for ANIMA are
   also considered:

      Secure Bootstrap.

      Autonomic Control Plane (ACP).

      Stable Connectivity of Network OAM.
