Abstract

   Structured IDentifiers (SID) are used to identify different YANG
   items when encoded in CBOR.  This document defines the registration
   and assignment processes of SIDs.  To enable the implementation of
   these processes, this document also defines a file format used to
   persist and publish assigned SIDs.
