P802.1Xck: Port-Based Network Access Control—Amendment 2:
YANG Data Model

This amendment specifies a YANG data model that allows configuration and status reporting for port-based network access control in the scenarios described in Clause 7 of this standard and Clause 11 of IEEE Std 802.1AE, using the information model already specified in clause 12.9 of IEEE Std 802.1X. This amendment will also resolve any maintenance items that have been submitted on IEEE Std 802.1X.

YANG (Request For Comment (RFC) 6020) is a formalized data modeling language that can be used by NETCONF, a widely accepted protocol that is being used to simplify network configuration. Other standards development organizations (e.g. Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Metro Ethernet Forum) have adopted YANG, and are developing a broad range of data models. Development of a YANG data model for the manageable entities specified in IEEE Std 802.1X will support this industry wide effort.
