Technical Summary This document defines mechanisms that provide an asynchronous message notification delivery service for the NETCONF protocol. This is an optional capability built on top of the base NETCONF definition. This document defines the capabilities and operations necessary to support this service. Working Group Summary This document completes the initial charter of the NETCONF WG. It was longly debated and discussed in the Working Group, including two Last Calls. The current version reflects the consensus of the Working Group. Document Quality There are several implementations of NETCONF which implement or plan to implement the notifications option. Suresh Krishnan reviewed the document for the Gen-ART team. Personnel Bert Wijnen is the document shepherd and Dan Romascanu is the responsible Area Director. RFC Editor Note Please add at the end of Section 7 - Security Considerations the following: If a malicious or buggy NETCONF client sends a number of <create-subscription> requests, then these subscriptions accumulate and may use up system resources. In such a situation, subscriptions can be terminated by terminating the suspect underlying NETCONF sessions using the <kill-session> operation.
