                    draft-ietf-netconf-rfc7895bis-02

Abstract

   This document describes a YANG library that provides information
   about all the YANG modules and datastores used by a network
   management server (e.g., a Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF)
   server).  Simple caching mechanisms are provided to allow clients to
   minimize retrieval of this information.

1.  Introduction

   There is a need for standard mechanisms to provide the operational
   state of a network management server.  This includes, for instance,
   identifying the YANG modules and datastores that are in use by a
   server and how they relate to each other.

   This document defines a YANG module that can be used to provide this
   informaton, in a way that is compatible with the NMDA
   [I-D.ietf-netmod-revised-datastores], but that is also backwards
   compatible with the "YANG Module Library" YANG module defined in
   [RFC7895].

   If a large number of YANG modules are utilized by the server, then
   the YANG library contents needed can be relatively large.  This
   information changes very infrequently, so it is important that
   clients be able to cache the YANG library contents and easily
   identify whether their cache is out of date.

   YANG library information can be different on every server and can
   change at runtime or across a server reboot.

Internet-Draft                YANG Library                  October 2017


   If the server implements multiple protocols to access the YANG-
   defined data, each such protocol has its own conceptual instantiation
   of the YANG library.

   The following information is needed by a client application (for each
   YANG module in the library) to fully utilize the YANG data modeling
   language:

   o  identifier: a unique identifier for the module that includes the
      module's name, revision, submodules, features, and deviations.

   o  name: The name of the YANG module.

   o  revision: Each YANG module and submodule within the library SHOULD
      have a revision.  This is derived from the most recent revision
      statement within the module or submodule.

   o  submodule list: The name, and if defined, revision of each
      submodule used by the module MUST be identified.

   o  feature list: The name of each YANG feature supported by the
      server, in a given datastore schema, MUST be identified.

   o  deviation list: The name of each YANG module used for deviation
      statements, in a given datastore schema, MUST be identified.

   The following information is needed by a client application (for each
   datastore supported by the server) to fully access all the YANG-
   modelled data available on the server:

   o  identity: the YANG identity for the datastore.

   o  modules: modules supported by the datastore, including any
      features and deviations.

1.1.  Terminology

   The keywords "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP
   14, [RFC2119].

   The following terms are defined in [RFC6241]:

   o  client

   o  server

Internet-Draft                YANG Library                  October 2017


   The following terms are defined in [RFC7950]:

   o  module

   o  submodule

   The following terms are defined in ^NMDA":

   o  conventional configuration datastore

   o  operational datastore

   o  datastore schema

   The following terms are used within this document:

   o  YANG library: A collection of metadata describing the server's
      operational state.

1.2.  Tree Diagrams

   A simplified graphical representation of the data model is used in
   this document.  The meaning of the symbols in these diagrams is as
   follows:

   o  Brackets "[" and "]" enclose list keys.

   o  Abbreviations before data node names: "rw" means configuration
      data (read-write) and "ro" state data (read-only).

   o  Symbols after data node names: "?" means an optional node, "!"
      means a presence container, and "*" denotes a list and leaf-list.

   o  Parentheses enclose choice and case nodes, and case nodes are also
      marked with a colon (":").

   o  Ellipsis ("...") stands for contents of subtrees that are not
      shown.

1.3.  Motivation for rfc7895bis

   RFC Ed.: delete this section, including this note, at time of
   publication.

   All NETCONF servers supporting YANG 1.1 [RFC7950] MUST support YANG
   Library (see Section 5.6.4 of RFC 7950).  Similarly, all RESTCONF
   servers MUST support YANG Library (see Section 10 of RFC 8040).

   These requirements are independent of if the server supports NMDA or
   not.

   RFC 7895 has a mandatory to implement 'modules-state' tree that a
   server uses to advertise all the modules it supports.  However, this
   module was designed assuming the all modules would be in all
   datastores, and with the same number of features and deviations.
   However, this is not the case with NMDA-compatible servers that may
   have some modules that only appear in <operational> (e.g., ietf-
   network-topo) or only also appear in a dynamic datastore (e.g., i2rs-
   ephemeral-rib).  It is also possible that a server only implements a
   module in <running>, as it hasn't yet coded support for returning the
   module's opstate yet.  Presumably, an NMDA-supporting server would
   return all modules implemented in every datastore, but this would be
   misleading to existing clients and unhelpful to NMDA-aware clients.

   In the end, it appears that the 'modules-state' node should be for
   non-NMDA aware clients.  For backwards compatability, an NMDA-
   supporting server SHOULD populate 'modules-state' in a backwards-
   compatible manner.  The new 'yang-library' node would be ignored by
   legacy clients, while providing all the data needed for NMDA-aware
   clients, which would themselves ignore the 'modules-state' tree.

   The solution presented in this document is further motivated by the
   following desires:

   o  leverage Section 5.6.4 of RFC 7950 and Section 10 of RFC 8040.

   o  indicate which modules are supported by each datastore

   o  enable the features and deviations to vary by datastore

   o  structure extensible to support schema-mount

   o  provide a top-level container for all server metadata

1.4.  Summary of Changes from RFC 7895

   This document updates [RFC7895] in the following ways:

   o  Renames document title from "YANG Module Library" to "YANG
      Library".

   o  Adds a new top-level "yang-library" container to hold many types
      of server metadata: modules supported, datastores supported,
      relationships between datastores and modules, etc.

Internet-Draft                YANG Library                  October 2017


   o  Adds a set of new groupings as replacements for the deprecated
      "module-list" grouping.

   o  Adds a "yang-library-update" notification as a replacement for the
      deprecated "yang-library-change" notification.

   o  Deprecates the "modules-state" tree.

   o  Deprecates the "module-list" grouping.

   o  Deprecates the "yang-library-change" notification.

2.  YANG Library

   The "ietf-yang-library" module provides information about the modules
   and datastores supported by a server.  This module is defined using
   YANG version 1.1, but it supports the description of YANG modules
   written in any revision of YANG.

   Following is the YANG Tree Diagram for the "ietf-yang-library"
   module, excluding the deprecated 'modules-state' tree:

2.1.  yang-library

   This container holds all of the server's metadata.

2.1.1.  yang-library/modules/module

   This list contains one entry for each unique instance of a module in
   use by the server.  Each entry is distinguished by the module's name,
   revisions, features, and deviations.

   A server cannot implement different revisions of the same module in
   different datastores, so there MUST only be a single revision of a
   given module in the "module" list that has a "conformance-type" leaf
   of "implement".

   Although the server is at liberty to choose the unique "id" for each
   entry in the "module" list, it is suggested to use an "id" that would

Internet-Draft                YANG Library                  October 2017


   be meaningful to clients.  For example, "ietf-interfaces@2017-08-17"
   could be used as the "id" for a particular revision of the IETF
   interfaces YANG module.  For a module that holds deviations or
   features specific to a datastore perhaps an "id" that also contains
   the datastore name, like "ietf-interfaces-deviations@2017-08-17/
   operational" could be used.

2.1.2.  yang-library/module-sets/module-set

   A "module-set" represents the datastore schema that is used by one or
   more datastores.

   This list contains one entry for each module set in use by the server
   (e.g., presented by a datastore).

   All conventional configuration datastores use the same datastore
   schema, which can normally be modelled using a single module set.

   A dynamic configuration datastore may use a different datastore
   schema from the conventional configuration datastores, and hence may
   require a separate module set definition.

   The datastore schema for the operational datastore is the superset of
   the datastore schema of all the configuration datastores, but can
   have unsupported nodes removed via datastore specific deviations or
   by omitting one or more modules from the module set associated with
   the operational datastore.

   However, where possible, the same module set used for conventional
   configuration datatstores should also be used for the operational
   datastore.  For example, deviations that are specific to "config
   false" nodes could still be applied to a common module instance that
   is also included in the module set used for the conventional
   datastores.

   Although the server is at liberty to choose the unique "id" for the
   "module-set" list entry, it is suggested to choose an "id" that would
   be meaningful to clients, perhaps including the datastore name if the
   module set is only relevant to a single datastore.

2.1.3.  yang-library/datastores/datastore

   This list contains one entry for each datastore supported by the
   server, and identifes the datastore schema associated with a
   datastore via a reference to a module-set.  Each supported
   conventional configuration datastore has a separate entry.

2.2.  YANG Library Module

   The "ietf-yang-library" module defines monitoring information for the
   YANG modules used by a server.

   The modules "ietf-yang-types" and "ietf-inet-types" from [RFC6991]
   and the module "ietf-datastores" from
   [I-D.ietf-netmod-revised-datastores] are used by this module for some

3.  IANA Considerations

3.1.  YANG Module Registry

   RFC 7895 previously registered one URI in the IETF XML registry
   [RFC3688].  Following the format in RFC 3688, the following
   registration was made:

        URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-yang-library
        Registrant Contact: The NETCONF WG of the IETF.
        XML: N/A, the requested URI is an XML namespace.

   This document takes over this registration entry made by RFC 7895.

Internet-Draft                YANG Library                  October 2017


   RFC 7895 previously registered one YANG module in the "YANG Module
   Names" registry [RFC6020] as follows:

     name:         ietf-yang-library
     namespace:    urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-yang-library
     prefix:       yanglib
     reference:    RFC 7895

   This document takes over this registration entry made by RFC 7895.

4.  Security Considerations

   The YANG module defined in this memo is designed to be accessed via
   the NETCONF protocol [RFC6241].  The lowest NETCONF layer is the
   secure transport layer and the mandatory-to-implement secure
   transport is SSH [RFC6242].  The NETCONF access control model
   [RFC6536] provides the means to restrict access for particular
   NETCONF users to a pre-configured subset of all available NETCONF
   protocol operations and content.

   Some of the readable data nodes in this YANG module may be considered
   sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments.  It is thus
   important to control read access (e.g., via get, get-config, or
   notification) to these data nodes.  These are the subtrees and data
   nodes and their sensitivity/vulnerability:

   o  /modules-state/module: The module list used in a server
      implementation may help an attacker identify the server
      capabilities and server implementations with known bugs.  Although
      some of this information may be available to all users via the
      NETCONF <hello> message (or similar messages in other management
      protocols), this YANG module potentially exposes additional
      details that could be of some assistance to an attacker.  Server
      vulnerabilities may be specific to particular modules, module
      revisions, module features, or even module deviations.  This
      information is included in each module entry.  For example, if a
      particular operation on a particular data node is known to cause a
      server to crash or significantly degrade device performance, then
      the module list information will help an attacker identify server
      implementations with such a defect, in order to launch a denial-
      of-service attack on the device.
