This document aims to enrich the Distributed Denial-of-Service Open
Threat Signaling (DOTS) signal channel protocol with various
telemetry attributes, allowing for optimal Distributed
Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack mitigation. It specifies the normal
traffic baseline and attack traffic telemetry attributes a DOTS
client can convey to its DOTS server in the mitigation request, the
mitigation status telemetry attributes a DOTS server can communicate
to a DOTS client, and the mitigation efficacy telemetry attributes a
DOTS client can communicate to a DOTS server. The telemetry
attributes can assist the mitigator in choosing the DDoS mitigation
techniques and performing optimal DDoS attack mitigation.

This document specifies two YANG modules: one for representing DOTS
telemetry message types and one for sharing the attack mapping
details over the DOTS data channel.

This document is a product of the DDoS Open Threat Signaling Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.

This announcement is sent to the IETF-Announce and rfc-dist lists.
