                        draft-ietf-opsawg-sdi-13

Abstract

   Deploying a new network device in a location where the operator has
   no staff of its own often requires that an employee physically travel
   to the location to perform the initial install and configuration,
   even in shared facilities with "remote-hands" type support.  In many
   cases, this could be avoided if there were an easy way to transfer
   the initial configuration to a new device, while still maintaining
   confidentiality of the configuration.

   This document extends existing vendor proprietary auto-install to
   provide limited confidentiality to initial configuration during
   bootstrapping of the device.
