         An HTTPS-based Transport for Configured Subscriptions
                   draft-ietf-netconf-https-notif-00

Abstract

   This document defines a YANG data module for configuring HTTPS based
   configured subscription, as defined I-D.ietf-netconf-subscribed-
   notifications.  The use of HTTPS maximizes transport-level
   interoperability, while allowing for encoding selection from text,
   e.g.  XML or JSON, to binary.

1.  Introduction

   Subscribed Notifications [I-D.ietf-netconf-subscribed-notifications]
   defines a YANG data module for configuring subscribed notifications.
   It even defines a subscriptions container that contains a list of
   receivers.  But it defers the configuration and management of those
   receivers to other documents.  This document defines a YANG [RFC7950]
   data module for configuring and managing HTTPS based receivers for
   the notifications.  Such a configured receiver can be a third party
   collector, collecting events on behalf of receivers that want to co-
   relate events from different publishers.  Configured subscriptions
   enable a server, acting as a publisher of notifications, to
   proactively push notifications to external receivers without the
   receivers needing to first connect to the server, as is the case with
   dynamic subscriptions.

   This document describes how to enable the transmission of YANG
   modeled notifications, in the configured encoding (i.e., XML, JSON)
   over HTTPS.  The use of HTTPS maximizes transport-level
   interoperability, while the encoding selection pivots between
   implementation simplicity (XML, JSON) and throughput (text versus
   binary).
