                 draft-ietf-babel-information-model-13

Abstract

   This Babel Information Model provides structured data elements for a
   Babel implementation reporting its current state and may allow
   limited configuration of some such data elements.  This information
   model can be used as a basis for creating data models under various
   data modeling regimes.  This information model only includes
   parameters and parameter values useful for managing Babel over IPv6.

1.  Introduction

   Babel is a loop-avoiding distance-vector routing protocol defined in
   [RFC8966].  [RFC8967] defines a security mechanism that allows Babel
   packets to be cryptographically authenticated, and [RFC8968] defines
   a security mechanism that allows Babel packets to be both
   authenticated and encrypted.  This document describes an information
   model for Babel (including implementations using one or both of these
   security mechanisms) that can be used to create management protocol
   data models (such as a NETCONF [RFC6241] YANG [RFC7950] data model).

Internet-Draft           Babel Information Model           February 2021

   Due to the simplicity of the Babel protocol, most of the information
   model is focused on reporting Babel protocol operational state, and
