Abstract

   Network infrastructure devices such as routers and switches are
   important parts for network security.  This document describes
   security baseline for network infrastructure device management plane,
   with YANG output, to provide a minimum set of important security
   management features.

1.  Introduction

   Securing network infrastructure devices is a challenging and critical
   task for organizations and operators to preserve confidentiality,
   integrity and availability for network and network traffic
   information.  Thus, development and deployment of security baseline
   for network infrastructure is needed to provide a solid foundation
   for the overall network security.

   To address threats and attacks to network infrastructure devices,
   different security functions are implemented in application layer,
   network layer and infrastructure layer.  Network layer of network
   infrastructure device is typically categorized into three planes of
   operation: management plane, control plane and data plane.  All the
   planes should be protected and monitored to secure network.

   This document focuses on security baseline for network infrastructure
   device management plane.  Management plane provides configuration and
   monitoring services to network infrastructure devices.  It provides a
