Please excuse the spam.

There is a discussion about forming a working group for autonomic networking
that may be of interest to a number of you.

Please continue the discussion on the ANIMA mailing list (i.e., not here!)

> Autonomic Networking Integrated Model and Approach (ANIMA) WG
> Description of Working Group
> Autonomic Networking focuses on self-management of network elements. An
> autonomic function works in a distributed way across
> various network elements, allowing however central guidance and reporting.
> Autonomic functions already exist today, for example
> IGP routing protocols such as OSPF. However, all such functions have their own
> discovery, transport, messaging and security
> mechanisms.
> To transform the somewhat abstract Autonomic Networking concept into
> concrete, realisable requirements, the first stage,
> undertaken in the Network Management Research Group (NMRG) of the IRTF,
> was to define terminology and design goals, and to
> derive a high-level gap analysis. The definitions and design goals, as well as
> simple architecture model are defined in
> draft-irtf-nmrg-autonomic-network-definitions; the gap analysis for AN is
> described in draft-irtf-nmrg-an-gap-analysis. The UCAN
> BoF at IETF 90 discussed use cases and some existing solutions. All the above
> work serves as a baseline for this working group.
> This working group defines solutions for an initial set of components of an
> autonomic networking infrastructure, based on the
> simple architecture and design goals defined in draft-irtf-nmrg-autonomic-
> network-definitions. Future work may include a more
> detailed systems architecture to support the development of autonomic service
> agents. The Anima working group will initially
> focus on enterprise, ISP networks and IoT.
> The solutions target to cover the following areas:
> o identity of nodes
> o common security model
> o discovery model
> o negotiation model
> o a secure and logically separated communications channel
> o an example for an autonomic management model
> The goals of this working group are:
> o Definition of a generic discovery and negotiation protocol for autonomic
> functions
>    Starting point: draft-jiang-config-negotiation-protocol
> o Definition of a mechanism to bootstrap a trust infrastructure
>    Starting point: draft-pritikin-bootstrapping-keyinfrastructures
> o Definition of an logically separated Autonomic Control Plane
>    Starting point: draft-behringer-autonomic-control-plane
> In addition, autonomic service agents will need to be defined for specific use
> cases. The working group will initially consider
> one simple example as a test case for further work.
> o Definition of <a selected use case by the group>
>   Starting point: draft-use-case-tbd
> The initial set of work items is limited to the above list to stay focused and
> "boiling the ocean". Additional documents
> concerning policy intent, other autonomic infrastructure components, use cases
> or autonomic service agents are strongly
> encouraged, as individual submissions, but are not planned as working group
> deliverables for now. No additional work items will
> be accepted in the working group without re-chartering.
