Abstract

   This draft is focused on the north-bound interface of NSFs (Network
   Security Functions) and proposes an information model for
   configuring various kinds NSF security functions, based on the
   packet-based paradigm. The Yang structure and application examples
   are also presented to clarify how to use the information model.

 1. Introduction

   Due to the rapid development and deployment of cloud computing
   services, the demand of cloud-based security services is also
   rapidly growing. The customers of them can be enterprises [I-
   D.zarny-i2nsf-data-center-use-cases], User Equipment (UE) of mobile
   network and Internet of Things (IoT) [I-D.qi-i2nsf-access-network-
   usecase], residential access users [I-D.pastor-i2nsf-access-
   usecases], and so on.

   Derived from [I-D.dunbar-i2nsf-problem-statement], there could be
   two types of I2NSF interfaces:
