Abstract

   This document provides security baseline for network infrastructure
   device management plane, which is represented by YANG data model.
   The corresponding values of this YANG data model can be transported
   between Security Automation and Continuous Monitoring (SACM)
   components and used for network infrastructure device security
   evaluation.

1.  Introduction

   Besides user devices and servers, network infrastructure devices such
   as routers, switches, and firewalls are crucial to enterprise network
   security.  Security baseline provides a minimal set of security
   requirements that are essential to protect enterprise network.  The
   security baseline and organization specific requirements can then be
   used to assess the security posture of network infrastructure
   devices.

   In order to address threats and attacks to network infrastructure
   devices, different security functions and configurations are
   implemented in application layer, network layer and infrastructure
   layer.  Network layer is typically categorized into three planes of
   operation: management plane, control plane and data plane.  All the
