               A YANG Data Model for Interface Management
                  draft-ietf-netmod-interfaces-cfg-06

Abstract

   This document defines a YANG data model for the management of network
   interfaces.  It is expected that interface type specific data models
   augment the generic interfaces data model defined in this document.

Internet-Draft          YANG Interface Management         September 2012

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a YANG [RFC6020] data model for the management
   of network interfaces.  It is expected that interface type specific
   data models augment the generic interfaces data model defined in this
   document.

   Network interfaces are central to the management of many Internet
   protocols.  Thus, it is important to establish a common data model
   for how interfaces are identified and configured.

1.1.  Terminology

   The keywords "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP
   14, [RFC2119].
