                      Filter-Based RIB Data Model
                  draft-ietf-i2rs-fb-rib-data-model-01

Abstract

   This document defines a data model to support the Filter-based
   Routing Information Base (RIB) Yang data models.  A routing system
   uses the Filter-based RIB to program FIB entries that process
   incoming packets by matching on multiple fields within the packet and
   then performing a specified action on it.  The FB-RIB can also
   specify an action to forward the packet according to the FIB entries
   programmed using the RIBs of its routing instance.

   The Filter based RIB is a protocol independent data structure which
   can be deployed in a configuration datastore, an ephemeral control
   plane data stroe.

1.  Introduction

   This document provides a protocol-independent yang module for Filter
   Based Routing (FB-RIB) routing filters within a routing element.  The
   informational model for this FB-RIB is in
