[I-D.ietf-teas-yang-path-computation] describes key use cases, where a client needs to request underlying SDN controllers for path computation. In some of these use cases, the underlying SDN controller can control a single-layer optical technologies, including Optical Transport Network (OTN), Wavelength Switched Optical Networks (WSON), Flexi-grid, and multi-layer Optical network.¶
This document defines YANG data models, which augment the generic Path Computation RPC defined in [I-D.ietf-teas-yang-path-computation], with technology-specific augmentations required to request path computation to an underlying Optical SDN controller. These models allow a client to delegate path computation tasks to the underlying Optical SDN controller without having to obtain optical-layer information from the controller and performing feasible path computation itself. This is especially helpful in cases where computing optically-feasible paths require knowledge of physical-layer states, such as optical impairments, which are visible only to the Optical controller.¶

2. YANG Data Models for Optical Path Computation
2.1. YANG Models Overview
The YANG data models for requesting WSON and Flexi-grid path computation are defined as augmentations of the generic Path Computation RPC defined in [I-D.ietf-teas-yang-path-computation], as shown in Figure 1.¶
The entities and Traffic Engineering (TE) attributes, such as requested path and tunnel attributes, defined in [I-D.ietf-teas-yang-path-computation], are still applicable when requesting WSON and Flexi-grid path computation and the models defined in this document only specifies the additional technology-specific attributes/information, using the attributes defined in [I-D.ietf-ccamp-rfc9093-bis].¶
2.2. Attributes Augmentation
The common characteristics for layer 0 (WSON and Flexi-grid) tunnels are under definition in [I-D.ietf-ccamp-rfc9093-bis] and re-used in the ietf-wson-path-computation and ietf-flexi-grid-path-computation YANG models¶
2.3. Bandwidth Augmentation
As described in Section 4.2 of [RFC7699], there is some overlap between bandwidth and label in layer0.¶
The WSON and flexi-grid label resource information described in Section 2.4, is sufficient to describe also the spectrum resources within WSON and flexi-grid networks. Therefore, the model does not define any augmentation for the te-bandwidth containers defined in [I-D.ietf-teas-yang-path-computation].¶
2.4. Label Augmentations
The models augment all the occurrences of the label-restriction list with WSON and Flexi-grid technology-specific attributes using the l0-label-range-info and flexi-grid-label-range-info groupings defined in [I-D.ietf-ccamp-rfc9093-bis].¶
Moreover, the models augment all the occurrences of the te-label container with the WSON, Flexi-grid and OTN technology-specific attributes using the wson-label-start-end, wson-label-hop, wson-label-step, flexi-grid-label-start-end, flexi-grid-label-hop and flexi-grid-label-step defined in [I-D.ietf-ccamp-rfc9093-bis].¶

5. Manageability Considerations
This document provides a method for requesting path computations for WSON and Flexi-Grid tunnels. Consideration of mechanisms to gather and collate information required for the path computations will be necessary. Furthermore, storing path computation requests and responses and triggering actions will also need to be carefully managed and secured.¶
Future versions of this document will contain additional information.¶
6. Security Considerations
The YANG module defined in this document will be accessed via the NETCONF protocol [RFC6241] or RESTCONF protocol [RFC8040]. The lowest NETCONF layer is the secure transport layer, and the mandatory-to-implement secure transport is Secure Shell (SSH) [RFC6242]. The lowest RESTCONF layer is HTTPS and the mandatory-to-implement secure transport is TLS [RFC8446].¶
The Network Configuration Access Control Model (NACM) [RFC8341] provides the means to restrict access to particular NETCONF or RESTCONF users to a pre-configured subset of all available NETCONF or RESTCONF protocol operations and content.¶
Some of the RPC operations defined in this YANG module may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. It is thus essential to control access to these operations.¶
Operations defined in this document, and their sensitivities and possible vulnerabilities, will be discussed further in future versions of this document.¶
7. IANA Considerations
This document registers the following URIs in the "ns" subregistry within the "IETF XML registry" [RFC3688].¶
URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-wson-path-computation Registrant Contact: The IESG. XML: N/A, the requested URI is an XML namespace. URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-flexi-grid-path-computation Registrant Contact: The IESG. XML: N/A, the requested URI is an XML namespace.¶
This document registers the following YANG module in the "YANG Module Names" registry [RFC7950].¶
name: ietf-wson-path-computation namespace: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-wson-path-computation prefix: wson-pc reference: this document name: ietf-flexi-grid-path-computation namespace: ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-flexi-grid-path-computation prefix: flexg-pc reference: this document¶

Appendix A. Change Log
The initial YANG data model requesting path computation in optical networks was draft-gbb-ccamp-optical-path-computation-yang-00. This document included path computation request capabilities for WSON, Flexi-Grid and OTN technologies. However, it was proposed at IETF 113 (March 25, 2022) to split the initial document into separate documents for WDM (WSON and Flexi-Grid) and OTN technologies, as each technology may be developed and implemented separately.¶
The WDM technology capabilities were kept in this document, and the OTN capabilities were moved into [I-D.draft-gbb-ccamp-otn-path-computation-yang].¶
Editors note, please remove this appendix before publication.¶
