Abstract

   This document describes the Namespace Identifier (NID) for Uniform
   Resource Namespace (URN) resources to uniquely identify enterprise
   YANG modules.  This document defines a single top level "rdns"
   Namespace identifier (NID), with which organizations and enterprises
   can define Uniform Resource Name (URN) Namespaces to uniquely
   identify enterprise YANG modules.

1.  Introduction

   The use of a standard data modeling language YANG [RFC6020] together
   with Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) [RFC6241] allows for
   the creation of a standard network management interface.  A
   networking device that supports such a standard network configuration
   interface supports NETCONF as well as a set of YANG modules, allowing
   administrators to manage data defined by the supported YANG modules
   in a single uniform manner, regardless of the make and model of the
   device.

   To identify YANG modules, RFC 6020 Section 5.3 [RFC6020] requires
   that each YANG module, whether it is a standard YANG module or not,
   specify an XML namespace [XML-NAMES], and that the XML namespace be a
   globally unique Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) [RFC3986].  To
   date, IETF standard YANG modules register their XML namespaces with
   the IETF XML namespaces [RFC3688] that fall under the "ietf"
   Namespace Identifier (NID).  Various standards governing bodies such
   as IEEE are also in the process of registering NIDs for their
   respective standard YANG module XML namespaces.

   As a shortcut, this document registers the "rdns" NID for
   organizations such as commercial companies or open source communities
