 An Extension of I2NSF Framework for Security Management Automation in
                     Cloud-Based Security Services
          draft-jeong-i2nsf-security-management-automation-00

Abstract

   This document describes an extension of the framework of Interface to
   Network Security Functions (I2NSF) for Security Management Automation
   (SMA) in cloud-based security services.  The security management
   automation in this document deals with a security polity translation
   and a feedback-based security service enforcement.  To support these
   two features in SMA, this document specifies an augmented
   architecture of the I2NSF framework with a new system component and a
   new interface.

1.  Introduction

   Interface to Network Security Functions (I2NSF) defines a framework
   and interfaces for interacting with Network Security Functions (NSFs)
   [RFC8192][RFC8329].  Note that an NSF is defined as software that
   provides a set of security-related services, such as (i) detecting
   unwanted activity, (ii) blocking or mitigating the effect of such
   unwanted activity in order to fulfill service requirements, and (iii)
   supporting communication stream integrity and confidentiality
   [RFC8329].  The NSF can be implemented as a Virtual Network Function
   (VNF) in a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) environment
   [ETSI-NFV][I-D.ietf-i2nsf-applicability].

   This document describes an extension of the framework of Interface to
   Network Security Functions (I2NSF) for Security Management Automation

   automation includes a security polity translation and a feedback-
