      Autoconfiguration of NOC services in ACP networks via GRASP
                  draft-eckert-anima-noc-autoconfig-00

Abstract

   This document defines standards for the autoconfiguration of crucial
   NOC services on ACP nodes via GRASP.  It enables secure remote access
   to zero-touch bootstrapped ANI devices via SSH/Netconf with Radius/
   Diameter authentication and authorization and provides lifecycle
   autoconfiguration for other crucial services such as syslog, NTP
   (clock synchronization) and DNS for operational purposes.

1.  Introduction

1.1.  Overview

   This document defines standards for the autoconfiguration of NOC
   services on ACP nodes via GRASP.

   One key purpose of this autoconfiguration is the seamless step from
   zero-touch bootstrap in ANI devices over to a securely remotely
   configurable ACP node.  For this porpose, this document defines the
   autoconfiguration of the SSH/Netconf server on the ACP node with
   autoconfigured authentication acros the ACP with Radius or Diameter.

   Both for this initial bringup as well as for ongoing operations of
   ACP nodes, this document describes autoconfiguration of syslog
   services as well as autoconfiguration of DNS for operational
   purposes.  Syslog is also specified to make tracking of device
   configuration state easier and allow to fully automate the bringup of
   the ACP node after zero-touch bootstrap.

1.2.  ACP nodes supporting NOC autoconfiguration

   This document introduces the term ACPna nodes to indicate nodes
   supporting ACP that also support the requirements described in this
   document: ACP (n)oc (a)utoconfigurable.

   If an ACPna node supports zero-touch bootstrap of the ACP where no
