1.  Introduction

   [I-D.medved-i2rs-topology-im] specifies the generic network topology
   information model, and approaches to extend the generic network
   topology information model to specific type of network topologies.
   It also provides the extensions made for Layer-3 unicast IGP, IS-IS
   and OSPF topologies.  [I-D.clemm-i2rs-yang-network-topo] defines the
   Yang [RFC6020] [RFC6021] data models for generic network topology, L3
   unicast IGP, IS-IS, OSPF and TED which are derived from the
   information model defined in [I-D.medved-i2rs-topology-im].

   Besides the information collected through "live" layer-3 IGP,
   [I-D.amante-i2rs-topology-use-cases] also specifies the collection of
   network information which is not visible within the Layer 3 IGP's
   LSDB.  Such information can be links, nodes, or properties of those
   links or nodes in lower layers of the network.  The requirements on
   the topology data model in [I-D.medved-i2rs-topology-requirements]
   also include the physical properties associated with the ports/
   interfaces, and information associated with the network element's
   immediately adjacent neighbors.

   This document defines the Yang data model for layer-2 network
   topologies by extending the generic network topology data model
   defined in [I-D.clemm-i2rs-yang-network-topo].

2.  Layer-2 Topology Model

   In order to represent a layer-2 network topology, the generic network
   topology model needs to be extended to contain layer-2 specific
   information.  Module "l2-topology" applies the generic network
   topology model to layer-2 network topologies, and augments the

Internet-Draft     Layer-2 Network Topology Data Model        March 2015


   generic network topology with information specific to layer-2
   networks.

   The relationship between the l2-topology model and the generic
   network topology model is shown in the figure below:

                          +---------------------+
                          |   network-topology  |
                          +----------+----------+
                                     ^
                                     |
                                     |
                          +----------^----------+
                          |    l2-topology      |
                          +---------------------+
            Figure 1. L2-topology and generic network-topology

   For layer-2 network topology, there are some layer-2 specific
   parameters and capabilities to be added to the generic network
   topology model, such as properties of layer-2 links or nodes,
   descriptions, layer-2 addresses, encapsulations, etc.  Part of the
   Information collected through LLDP could be included in the layer-2
   network topology.

   The structure of "L2-topology" data model is depicted in the
   following diagram.  Brackets enclose list keys, "rw" means
   configuration data, "ro" means operational state data, "?" designates
   optional nodes, "*" designates nodes that can have multiple
   instances.

   The L2-topology module augments the generic network-topology module
   as follows:

   o  A new network type "l2-network-type" is introduced.  This is
      represented by a container object, and is inserted under the
      "network-types" container of the generic network module in
      [I-D.clemm-i2rs-yang-network-topo].

Internet-Draft     Layer-2 Network Topology Data Model        March 2015


   o  Additional network attributes are introduced in a grouping "l2-
      network-attributes", which augments the "network" list of the
      network module in [I-D.clemm-i2rs-yang-network-topo].  The
      attributes include an Layer-2 network name and a set of flags.
      Each type of flag is represented by a separate identity.

   o  Additional data objects for nodes are introduced by augmenting the
      "node" list of the generic network module.  New objects include a
      series of layer-2 node parameters, as well as a set of flags.

   o  Additional data objects for termination points are introduced by
      augmenting the "termination-point" list of the generic network-
      topology module.  New objects include a series of port properties
      and parameters.

   o  Links are augmented as well with a set of parameters, allowing to
      associate a link with an L2 name, the link rate and another set of
      flags.

4.  IANA Considerations

   This document makes no request of IANA.

   Note to RFC Editor: this section may be removed on publication as an
   RFC.

5.  Security Considerations

   The transport protocol used for sending the topology data MUST
   support authentication and SHOULD support encryption.  The data-model
   by itself does not create any security implications.
