Technical Summary

   This document describes the framework for the Interface to Network
   Security Functions (I2NSF), and defines a reference model (including
   major functional components) for I2NSF.  Network security functions
   (NSFs) are packet-processing engines that inspect and optionally
   modify packets traversing networks, either directly or in the context
   of sessions to which the packet is associated.

Working Group Summary

   There was nothing exceptional in the WG processing for this document.
   There was careful debate resulting in a number of changes and careful
   synchronization with other WG documents. 

Document Quality

   This framework is not directly implementable, but it underpins the work
   of the working group. At least one vendor is building a system based on
   the work of the working group and following this framework as an
   architecture. There has also been experimentation at IETF hackathons
   that is consistent with this framework.

Personnel

   Yoav Nir is the Document Shepherd.
   Kathleen Moriarty is the Responsible AD.
