Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


Abstract

   [SPPI] describes a structure for specifying policy information that
   can then be transmitted to a network device for the purpose of
   configuring policy at that device.  The model underlying this
   structure is one of well-defined provisioning classes and instances
   of these classes residing in a virtual information store called the
   Policy Information Base (PIB).

   One way to provision policy is by means of the COPS protocol [COPS]
   with the extensions for provisioning [COPS-PR].  This protocol
   supports multiple clients, each of which may provision policy for a
   specific policy domain such as QoS, virtual private networks, or
   security.

   As described in [COPS-PR], each client supports a non-overlapping
   and independent set of PIB modules.  However, some provisioning
   classes are common to all subject-categories (client-types) and need
   to be present in each.  This document defines a set of PRCs and
   textual conventions that are common to all clients that provision
   policy using COPS for Provisioning.

2. General PIB Concepts

2.1. Roles

   The policy to apply to an interface may depend on many factors such
   as immutable characteristics of the interface (e.g., ethernet or
   frame relay), the status of the interface (e.g., half or full
   duplex), or user configuration (e.g., branch office or headquarters
   interface). Rather than specifying policies explicitly for each
   interface of all devices in the network, policies are specified in
   terms of interface functionality.

   To describe these functionalities of an interface we use the concept
   of "Roles". A Role is simply a string that is associated with an
   interface. A given interface may have any number of roles
   simultaneously. Provisioning classes have an attribute called a
   "RoleCombinationö which is a lexicographically ordered set of roles.
   Instances of a given provisioning class are applied to an interface
   if and only if the set of roles in the role combination matches the
   set of the roles of the interface.

                                                              [Page 2]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001



   Thus, roles provide a way to bind policy to interfaces without
   having to explicitly identify interfaces in a consistent manner
   across all network devices.  (The SNMP experience with ifIndex has
   proved this to be a difficult task.)  That is, roles provide a level
   of indirection to the application of a set of policies to specific
   interfaces. Furthermore, if the same policy is being applied to
   several interfaces, that policy need be pushed to the device only
   once, rather than once per interface, as long as the interfaces are
   configured with the same role combination.

   We point out that, in the event that the administrator needs to have
   unique policy for each interface, this can be achieved by
   configuring each interface with a unique role.

   The PEP sends all its Capability Set Names, Role Combinations,
   Policy Controlled Interfaces, and their relationships to the PDP in
   the first COPS request (REQ) message for a handle and whenever any
   updates or deletes occur.  The PDP can install new instances or
   change existing instances of these PRIs.  This operation can also
   occur in subsequent request messages generated in response to COPS
   state synchronization (SSQ) requests and local configuration
   changes.

   The comparing of roles (or role combinations) is case sensitive.

   By convention, when formatting the role-combination for exchange
   within a protocol message, within a PIB/MIB object's value, or as a
   printed value, the set is formatted in lexicographical order of the
   role's ASCII values; that is, the role that is first is formatted
   first. For example, "a+b" and "b+a" are NOT different role-
   combinations; rather, they are different formatting of the same
   role-combination, and hence for this example:
   - "a+b" is the valid formatting of that role-combination,
   - "b+a" is an invalid formatting of that role-combination.

   The role-combination of interfaces to which no roles have been
   assigned is known as the "null" role-combination.  (Note the
   deliberate use of lower-case letters for "null" so that it avoids
   confusion with the ASCII NULL character that has a value of zero but
   a length of one.)

   In an "install" or an "install-notify" class, the wildcard role-
   combination "*" can be used. In addition to providing for interface-
   specific roles, it also allows for other optimizations in reducing
   the number of role-combinations for which a policy has to be
   specified. For example:


   Suppose we have three interfaces:

     Roles A, B and R1 are assigned to interface I1
     Roles A, B and R2 are assigned to interface I2

                                                              [Page 3]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


     Roles A, B and R3 are assigned to interface I3

   Then, a PRI of a fictional IfDscpAssignTable that has the following
   values for its attributes:

     ifDscpAssignPrid    = 1
     ifDscpAssignRoles   = "*+A+B"
     ifDscpAssignName    = "4queues"
     ifDscpAssignDscpMap = 1

   will apply to all three interfaces, because "*" matches with R1, R2
   and R3. The policies can be assigned to an interface due to more
   than one wild-carded role combo matching a given interface's role
   combo string. The PDP should attempt to resolve conflicts between
   policies before sending policies to the PEP. In the situation where
   the PDP sends multiple policies to a PEP and they do conflict,
   either because of an error by the PDP or because of a device-
   specific conflict, then the PEP MUST reject the installation of the
   conflicting policies and return an error.

   Formally,
   - The wildcard Role is denoted by "*",
   - The "*" Role is not allowed to be defined as part of the role-
     combination of an interface as notified by the PEP to the PDP; it
     is only allowed in policies installed/deleted via COPS-PR from
     the PDP to the PEP.
   - For a policy to apply to an interface when the policy's role-
     combination is "*+a+b", then the interface's role-combination:
         - Must include "a" and "b", and
         - Can include zero or more other roles.
   - The wildcard character "*" is listed before the other roles as
     "*" is lexicographically before "a"; however, the wildcard matches
     any zero or more roles, irrespective of lexicographical order.
     For example: "*+b+e+g" would match "a+b+c+e+f+g"

   Note that the characters "+" and "*" MUST not be used in an
   interface Role. The Framework Role PIB module in section 4 of this
   document contains the Role and RoleCombination Textual Conventions.

2.1.1. An Example

   The functioning of roles might be best understood by an example.
   Suppose I have a device with three interfaces, with roles as
   follows:

        IF1: "finance"
        IF2: "finance"
        IF3: "manager"

   Suppose, I also have a PDP with two policies:

        P1: Packets from finance department (role "finance") get DSCP 5
        P2: Packets from managers (role "manager") get DSCP 6

                                                              [Page 4]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


   To obtain policy, the PEP reports to the PDP that it has some
   interfaces with role combination "finance" and some with role
   combination "manager".  In response, the PDP downloads policy P1
   associated with role combination "finance" and downloads a second
   policy P2 associated with role combination "manager".

   Now suppose the finance person attached to IF2 is promoted to
   manager and so the system administrator adds the role "manager" to
   IF2. The PEP now reports to the PDP that it has three role
   combinations: some interfaces with role combination "finance", some
   with role combination "manager" and some with role combination
   "finance+manager".  In response, the PDP downloads an additional
   third policy associated with the new role combination
   "finance+manager".

   How the PDP determines the policy for this new role combination is
   entirely the responsibility of the PDP.  It could do so
   algorithmically or by rule.  For example, there might be a rule that
   specifies that manager policy takes preference over department
   policy.  Or there might be a third policy installed in the PDP as
   follows:

        P3: Packets from finance managers (role "finance" and role
            "manager") get DSCP 7

   The point here is that the PDP is required to determine what policy
   applies to this new role combination and to download a third policy
   to the PEP for the role combination "finance+manager" even if that
   policy is the same as one already downloaded.  The PEP is not
   required (or allowed) to construct policy for new role combinations
   from existing policy.

2.2. Management of Role-Combinations from the PDP

   The PEP notifies the PDP of the Role-Combination assigned to each
   interface and ifCapSetName in a COPS configuration request
   (instances of the frwkIfRoleComboTable).

   Default ('null') Role-Combinations must be sent to the PDP for all
   ifIndices active on the PEP in the first configuration request sent
   for a request handle and updates must be sent every time the
   IfIndices are updated. The PEP may notify the PDP of the Interface
   Capability sets (if any) via the frwkIfCapSetTable. If the PEP does
   not need to notify the PDP of capability sets, it must set the
   ifCapSetName in the frwkIfRoleComboTable instances to a zero length
   string.

   In response to this configuration request, if applicable, the PDP
   may send policies for the PEP in a solicited decision or must send a
   null decision. The PEP must then send a solicited report message for
   the decision.

   At any later time, the PDP can update the Role-Combinations assigned

                                                              [Page 5]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


   to a specific interface, identified by IfIndex, or for an aggregate,
   identified by IfCapSetName, via an unsolicited decision to the PEP
   on any open request handle. The PDP does this by sending updated
   PRIs for the frwkIfRoleComboTable.

   When the Interface Role Combination associations are updated by the
   PDP, the PEP is responsible to send updated requests for all open
   contexts (request handles). This is true even if the PEP's request
   state changes due to an internal event or if the state is changed by
   the PDP. If the role-combination updates were sent by the PDP, the
   PEP must send these updated requests only if it can process the
   unsolicited decision containing the frwkIfRoleCombo PRIs
   successfully and it must do so after sending the success report for
   the unsolicited decision. If the PEP failed to process the decision
   (i.e., the frwkIfRoleCombo PRIs) it must only send a failure report
   to the PDP.

   On the other hand, the PDP must not expect to receive the updated
   requests with the revised role-combination information until after
   it receives a success report for these updates from the PEP.

   Note that, any unsolicited decisions received by the PEP in the time
   period after it receives updates to its Role-Combination
   associations and before receiving solicited decisions for the
   updated requests it sent for all context handles, must be ignored
   since they would contain outdated decisions sent by the PDP for the
   old request information.

   The PDP must respond to the updated requests by solicited decisions,
   sending policies if applicable or null decisions. The PEP must
   respond to these solicited decisions with solicited reports to
   complete the transaction.


2.3. Updating a Request State

   This section describes the messages exchanged between the PEP and
   PDP when the PEP is updating a previously sent request for a
   particular COPS handle. Note that a PEP can incrementally update a
   request only if the frwkPibIncarnationFullState attribute is shown
   to be supported via the supported PRC table. If this attribute is
   not supported the PDP must treat all PEP requests as the full
   request state.

2.3.1 Full Request State

   When the PEP wants to send the entire request state to the PDP (for
   example, in response to a Synchronize State Request from the PDP),
   the PEP MUST send the incarnation instance with the
   frwkPibIncarnationFullState attribute set to TRUE.

   A PDP that receives an incarnation instance in the request message
   with this attribute set to TRUE, must clear the request information

                                                              [Page 6]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


   it maintains for this request handle and re-install the information
   received.

   If this attribute is set to FALSE or if the incarnation instance is
   missing in the request message, the request must be interpreted as
   an incremental update to the previous request message.

2.3.2 Installing PRIs in a Request

   If the PEP wants to install additional PRIs for a request handle,
   the PEP MUST ensure that frwkPibIncarnationFullState attribute is
   set to FALSE and the PEP MUST use new (unused in this context)
   InstanceIds [SPPI] for these PRIs.

   When a PDP receives instances with new InstanceIds for a request
   with the frwkPibIncarnationFullState in the incarnation instance set
   to FALSE or if the request has no incarnation information, it must
   interpret these PRIs as an incremental update to the request state
   and add them to the request state it maintains for this handle.

2.3.3 Updating PRIs in a Request

   If the PEP wants to update previously installed PRIs for a request
   handle, the PEP MUST ensure that frwkPibIncarnationFullState
   attribute is set to FALSE for these PRIs. Note that the PEP must
   send the same InstanceIds for the PRIs being updated. If the PEP
   uses new InstanceIds, the PDP must interpret them as Install's
   for this request state.

   When a PDP receives a request with instances having InstanceIds that
   exist in its state for that handle with the
   frwkPibIncarnationFullState in the incarnation instance set to FALSE
   or if the request has no incarnation information, it must interpret
   these PRIs as an update to the PRIs in the request state it
   maintains for this handle.

2.3.4 Removing PRIs from a Request

   If the PEP wants to remove previously installed PRIs for a request
   handle, the PEP MUST ensure that frwkPibIncarnationFullState
   attribute is set to FALSE and MUST send the PRI bindings with the
   PRID set to the InstanceId of the PRI to be removed and the length
   field in the EPD object header set to the header length only,
   effectively setting the data length to zero.

   Note that the PEP must send the same InstanceIds for the PRIs being
   removed. If the PEP sends new InstanceIds and the length field in
   the EPD object header is set to the header length only (implying the
   data length is zero), the PEP is attempting to remove an
   unknown/non-existent PRI. This SHOULD result in the PDP sending
   error PRIs in the solicited decision (see section 2.3.6 for a
   description of the frwkErrorTable).


                                                              [Page 7]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


   If the PEP sends new InstanceIds and the length field in the EPD
   object header is greater than the header length only (implying the
   EPD object has some attributes encoded in it), the PDP will
   interpret this as an install of the PRI if it can decode the EPD
   successfully.

   When a PDP receives a request with instances having InstanceIds that
   exist in its state for that handle with the
   frwkPibIncarnationFullState in the incarnation instance set to FALSE
   or if the request has no incarnation information, and the length
   field in the EPD object header is set to the header length only
   (implying the data length is zero), it must remove these PRIs from
   the request state it maintains for this handle.

2.3.5 Removing EXTENDED, AUGMENTED PRIs

   The PEP should remove the extended/augmented PRIs when it removes
   the base PRIs in the same COPS message. See [SPPI] for description
   of EXTENDED/AUGMENTED PRCs. A PDP that receives removes for a base
   PRI must implicitly remove the extensions.

2.3.6 Error Handling in Request updates

   If the PDP cannot process all the request installs/updates/removes
   in the COPS request message successfully, it MUST rollback to its
   previous request state and it MUST send a solicited decision to the
   PEP that contains frwkErrorTable instances. These instances contain
   an error code and a sub-code as defined in the [COPS-PR] CPERR
   object. For example if the PEP tries to remove an instance that does
   not exist, the 'priInstanceInvalid' error code must be sent to the
   PEP in a frwkError PRI. The frwkError PRIs also contain the PRC and
   the instanceId of the error-causing PRI. The PEP may then examine
   these error PRIs and resend the modified request. Note that, until
   the PEP resends the request updates/removes it will have
   configuration information for the last successful request state it
   sent to the PDP.


2.4. Multiple PIB Instances

   [COPS-PR] supports multiple, disjoint, independent instances of the
   PIB to represent multiple instances of configured policy.  The
   intent is to allow for the pre-provisioning of policy that can then
   be made active by a single, short decision from the PDP.

   A COPS context can be defined as an independent COPS request state
   for a particular subject category (client-type).

   With the COPS-PR protocol, each of these states is identified by a
   unique client handle.  The creation and deletion of these PIB
   instances can be controlled by the PDP as described in [COPS-PR] or
   can be triggered by an event by the PEP. A PEP must open at least
   one "request-state" for configuration for a given subject-category

                                                              [Page 8]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


   (client type). Additional "request-states" at the PEP may be
   initiated by the PDP or asynchronously generated by the PEP for
   outsourcing due to local events, which will be fully specified by
   the PRID/EPD data carried in the request.

   The frwkPibIncarnationInCtxtSet flag defines a set of contexts out
   of which only one context can be active at any given time. This set
   is called the 'configuration contexts' set. At the most one context
   may be active from this 'configuration context' set at any given
   time. Contexts that have the frwkPibIncarnationInCtxtSet attribute
   set to 'true' belong to this set. Contexts that do not belong to
   this set have the frwkPibIncarnationInCtxtSet set to 'false' and
   belong to the set of 'outsourcing contexts'. Note that a PEP can
   have these two sets of contexts only if the
   frwkPibIncarnationInCtxtSet attribute is shown to be supported via
   the supported PRC table. If the frwkPibIncarnationInCtxtSet is not
   supported a PEP must treat all contexts as belonging to the set of
   'configuration contexts' i.e., at the most one context can be active
   at any given time.

   Note that in the event that a PEP has an interface capability change
   such as a card hot swap or any other change in its notify
   information that may warrant a policy refresh, a subsequent complete
   or incremental request must be issued to the PDP containing the
   new/updated capabilities for all the configuration contexts. A
   request for re-configuration is issued for all request state
   configuration contexts, both for the active configuration context as
   well as any inactive configuration contexts. This is to ensure that
   when an inactive configuration context is activated, it has been
   pre-configured with policies compatible with the PEP's current
   capabilities.

   Although many PIB instances may be configured on a device (the
   maximum number of these instances being determined by the device
   itself) only one of the contexts from the 'configuration contexts'
   set can be active at any given time, the active one being selected
   by the PDP.  The Framework PIB supports the attribute
   frwkPibIncarnationActive in the frwkPibIncarnationTable to allow the
   PDP to denote the PIB instance as being active in a COPS decision
   message, and similarly, to report the active state (active or not)
   of the PIB instance to the PDP in a COPS request message.

   When the PEP installs an attribute frwkPibIncarnationActive that is
   'true' in one PIB instance which belongs to the 'configuration
   contexts' set, the PEP must ensure, re-setting the attribute if
   necessary, that the frwkPibIncarnationActive attribute is  'false'
   in all other installed contexts that belong to this set. To switch
   contexts, the PDP should set the frwkPibIncarnationActive attribute
   to 'true' in the context it wants to make the active context. The
   PDP should set this attribute in a context to 'false' only if it
   wants to send an inactive context to the PEP or deactivate the
   active context on the PEP. If an active context is made inactive


                                                              [Page 9]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


   without activating another context, the PEP must not have any
   policies enforced from any configuration contexts installed.

2.5. Reporting and Configuring of Device Capabilities

   Each network device providing policy-based services has its own
   inherent capabilities.  These capabilities can be hardware specific,
   e.g., an ethernet interface supporting input classification, or can
   be statically configured, e.g., supported queuing disciplines.
   These capabilities are organized into Interface Capability Sets,
   with each Capability Set given a unique name (ifCapSetName) and
   associated with a set of Role Combinations. Each Role Combination
   may in that way be associated with a set of interfaces.  .  These
   capabilities are communicated to the PDP when policy is requested by
   the PEP. Knowing device capabilities, the PDP can send the
   provisioning instances (PRIs) relevant to the specific device,
   rather than sending the entire PIB.

   Specific capability PRCs may be defined in other PIBs. These
   capability instances are grouped via the frwkIfCapSetTable. If the
   PEP wishes to send capability information to the PDP, the PIB must
   indicate which capabilities the PEP may send to the PDP by means of
   the 'notify' PIB-ACCESS clause as described in [SPPI]. If a PIB does
   not have any capabilities to communicate to the PDP, it must not
   send any instances for the frwkIfCapSetTable. If in this case the
   frwkIfRoleCombo table is used to communicate role combinations
   assigned to interfaces (via IfIndex), the ifCapSetName attribute in
   the frwkIfRoleComboTable instances must be set to a zero length
   string.

2.6. Reporting of Device Limitations

   To facilitate efficient policy installation, it is important to
   understand a device's limitations in relation to the advertised
   device capabilities. Limitations may be class-based, e.g., an
   "install" class is supported as a "notify" or only a limited number
   of class instances may be created, or attribute-based. Attribute
   limitations, such as supporting a restricted set of enumerations or
   requiring related attributes to have certain values, detail
   implementation limitations at a fine level of granularity.

   A PDP can avoid certain installation issues in a proactive fashion
   by taking into account a device's limitations prior to policy
   installation rather than in a reactive mode during installation. As
   with device capabilities, device limitations are communicated to the
   PDP when policy is requested.

   Reported device limitations may be accompanied by guidance values
   that can be used by a PDP to determine acceptable values for the
   identified attributes.

4. Summary of the Framework PIB

   The Framework PIB comprises of three groups:

4.1. Base PIB classes Group

      This contains PRCs intended to describe the PRCs supported
      by the PEP, PRC and/or attribute limitations and its current
      configuration.

      PRC Support Table

        As the technology evolves, we expect devices to be enhanced
        with new PIBs, existing PIBs to add new PRCs and existing PRCs
        to be augmented or extended with new attributes.  Also, it is
        likely that some existing PRCs or individual attributes of PRCs
        will be deprecated. The PRC Support Table describes the PRCs
        that the device supports as well as the individual attributes
        of each PRC.  Using this information the PDP can potentially
        tailor the policy to more closely match the capabilities of the
        device. The PRC Support Table instances are specific to the
        particular Subject Category (Client-Type). That is, the PRC
        Support Table for Subject Category 'A' will not include
        instances for classes supported by the Subject Category 'B'.
        Note that the COPS client-type [COPS] used for Framework PIB
        PRIs sent/received over COPS-PR MUST be the unique SUBJECT-
        CATEGORY number assigned for the area of policy being managed
        (e.g. QoS, Security etc).
        The PEP MUST ignore the attributes that it reports as not
        Supported in the decision from the PDP. The PEP SHOULD not send
        duplicate PRC support instances in a COPS Request and the PDP
        MUST ignore duplicate instances and MUST use the first instance
        received for a supported PRC in a COPS Request.

      PIB Incarnation Table

        This table contains exactly one row (corresponding to one PRI)
        per context.  It identifies the PDP that was the last to
        download policy into the device and also contains an identifier
        to identify the version of the policy currently downloaded.
        This identifier, both its syntax and value, is meaningful only
        to the PDPs.  It is intended to be a mechanism whereby a PDP,
        on connecting to a PEP, can easily identify a known incarnation
        of policy. This PRC defines a flag via which the installed
        contexts are divided into a set of contexts out of which only
        one context is active ('configuration contexts') and a set of
        'outsourcing contexts'. The incarnation PRC also
        defines an attribute to indicate which context is the
        active one at the present time in the 'configuration contexts'
        set. The incarnation instance is specific to the particular
        Subject Category (Client-Type).



                                                             [Page 14]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


      Component Limitations Table

        Some devices may not be able to implement the full range of
        values for all attributes.  In principle, each PRC supports a
        set of errors that the PEP can report to the PDP in the event
        that the specified policy is not implementable.  It may be
        preferable for the PDP to be informed of the device limitations
        before actually attempting to install policy, and while the
        error can indicate that a particular attribute value is
        unacceptable to the PEP, this does not help the PDP ascertain
        which values would be acceptable. To alleviate these
        limitations, the PEP can report some limitations of attribute
        values and/or classes and possibly guidance values for the
        attribute in the Component Limitations Table

      Device Identification Table

        This class contains a single provisioning instance that
        contains device-specific information that is used to facilitate
        efficient policy installation by a PDP. The instance of this
        class is reported to the PDP in a COPS request message so that
        the PDP can take into account certain device characteristics
        during policy installation.

4.2. Device Capabilities group

      This group contains the PRCs that describe the characteristics of
      interfaces of the device and the Role Combinations assigned to
      them.

      Interface Capabilities Set Table

        The interfaces the PEP supports are described by rows in
        this table (frwkIfCapSetTable).  Each row, or instance of this
        class, associates a unique interface name with a set of
        capabilities that the interface supports. The unique name is
        used to form a set of capabilities that the name represents.
        The capability references can specify instances in relevant
        capability tables in any PIB. The PEP notifies the PDP of these
        interface names and capabilities and then the PDP configures
        the interfaces, per role combination. The unique name
        (IfCapSetName) is not to be confused with the IfType object in
        MIB-II [STD17].

      Interface and Role Combination Table

        The Interface Capabilities Set Table (explained above)
        describes the interfaces the PEP supports by their
        capabilities, by assigning the capability sets a unique name
        (ifCapSetName). It is possible to tailor the behavior of
        interfaces by assigning specific role-combinations to the
        capability sets. This allows interfaces with the same
        capability sets to be assigned different policies, based on the

                                                             [Page 15]


Framework Policy Information Base                        November 2001


        current roles assigned to them. At the PDP, configuration is
        done in terms of these interface capability set names and the
        role-combinations assigned to them. Thus, each row of this
        class is a <Interface Index, interface capability set name,
        Role Combo> tuple, that indicates the roles that have been
        assigned to a particular capability set (as identified by
        IfCapSetName) and to a particular ifCapSetName. Note that the
        uniqueness criteria for this table has all the attributes, thus
        a ifCapSetName may have multiple role-combinations that it is
        associated with. Via the IfIndex, this table answers the
        questions of æwhich interfaces have a specific role
        combination?Æ and æwhat role combination a specific interface
        is a part of?Æ.


4.3. Classifier group

      This group contains the IP, IEEE 802 and Internal Label
      Classifier elements. The set of tables consist of a Base Filter
      table that contains the Index InstanceId and the Negation flag
      for the filter. This frwkBaseFilterTable is extended to form the
      IP Filter table, the 802 Filter table [802] and the Internal
      Label table. Filters may also be defined outside this document
      and used to extend the Base Filter table.

      The Extended classes do not have a separate Index value.
      Instances of the extended classes have the same indices as their
      base class instance. Inheritance is achieved using the EXTENDS
      keyword as defined in [SPPI].


4.4. Marker group

      This group contains the 802 marker and internal label marker
      PRCs. The 802 marker may be applied to mark 802 packets with the
      required VLAN Id and/or priority value. The Internal Label marker
      is applied to traffic in order to label it with a network device
      specific label.  Such a label is used to assist the
      differentiation of an input flow after it has been aggregated
      with other flows.  The label is implementation specific and may
      be used for other policy related functions like flow accounting
      purposes and/or other data path treatments.

           frwkCompLimitsType attribute) that is provided
           in the frwkCompLimitsGuidance attribute.

           A value of 'none(1)' means that no additional
           guidance is provided for the noted limitation type.

           A value of 'lengthMin(2)' means that the guidance
           attribute provides data related to the minimum
           acceptable length for the value of the identified
           component. A corresponding class instance
           specifying the 'lengthMax(3)' value is required
           in conjunction with this sub-type.

           A value of 'lengthMax(3)' means that the guidance
           attribute provides data related to the maximum
           acceptable length for the value of the identified
           component. A corresponding class instance
           specifying the 'lengthMin(2)' value is required
           in conjunction with this sub-type.

           A value of 'rangeMin(4)' means that the guidance
           attribute provides data related to the lower bound
           of the range for the value of the identified
           component. A corresponding class instance
           specifying the 'rangeMax(5)' value is required

           enumeration acceptable for the value of the
           identified component. A corresponding
           class instance specifying the 'enumMax(7)'
           value is required in conjunction with this sub-type.

           A value of 'enumMax(7)' means that the guidance
           attribute provides data related to the largest
           enumeration acceptable for the value of the
           identified component. A corresponding
           class instance specifying the 'enumMin(6)'
           value is required in conjunction with this sub-type.

           A value of 'enumOnly(8)' means that the guidance
           attribute provides data related to a single
           enumeration acceptable for the value of the
           identified component.

           A value of 'valueOnly(9)' means that the guidance
           attribute provides data related to a single
           value that is acceptable for the identified
           component.

           A value of 'bitMask(10)' means that the guidance
           attribute is a bit mask such that all the combinations of
           bits set in the bitmask are acceptable values for the
           identified component which should be an attribute of type
           'BITS'.

           For example, an implementation of the frwkIpFilter class may
           be limited in several ways, such as address mask, protocol
           and Layer 4 port options. These limitations could be
           exported using this table with the following instances:

           Component        Type                 Sub-Type   Guidance
           ------------------------------------------------------------
           DstPrefixLength  attrValueSupLimited  valueOnly   24
           SrcPrefixLength  attrValueSupLimited  valueOnly   24
           Protocol         attrValueSupLimited  rangeMin    10
           Protocol         attrValueSupLimited  rangeMax    20

           The above entries describe a number of limitations that
           may be in effect for the frwkIpFilter class on a given
           device. The limitations include restrictions on acceptable
           values for certain attributes.

           Also, an implementation of a PRC may be limited in the ways
           it can be accessed. For instance, for a fictitious PRC
           dscpMapEntry, which has a PIB-ACCESS of 'install-notify':

           Component    Type              SubType  Guidance

           values may be set at one time such that potentially several

6. Security Considerations

   It is clear that this PIB is used for configuration using [COPS-PR],
   and anything that can be configured can be misconfigured, with
   potentially disastrous effect. At this writing, no security holes
   have been identified beyond those that the COPS base protocol
   security is itself intended to address. These relate primarily to
   controlled access to sensitive information and the ability to
   configure a device - or which might result from operator error,
   which is beyond the scope of any security architecture.

   There are a number of provisioning classes defined in this PIB that
   have a PIB-ACCESS clause of install and install-notify (read-
   create). Such objects may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in
   some network environments. The support for "Install" or "Install-
   Notify" decisions sent over [COPS-PR] in a non-secure environment
   without proper protection can have a negative effect on network
   operations. There are a number of provisioning classes in this PIB
   that may contain information that may be sensitive from a business
   perspective, in that they may represent a customer's service
   contract or the filters that the service provider chooses to apply
   to a customer's ingress or egress traffic. There are no PRCs that
   are sensitive in their own right, such as passwords or monetary
   amounts. It may be important to control even "Notify"(read-only)
   access to these PRCs and possibly to even encrypt the values of
   these PRIs when sending them over the network via COPS-PR. The use
   of IPSEC between the PDP and the PEP, as described in [COPS],
   provides the necessary protection against security threats. However,
   even if the network itself is secure, there is no control as to who
   on the secure network is allowed to "Install/Notify"
   (read/change/create/delete) the PRIs in this PIB.

   It is then a customer/user responsibility to ensure that the PEP/PDP
   giving access to an instance of this PIB, is properly configured to
   give access to the PRIs only to those principals (users) that have
   legitimate rights to indeed "Install" or "Notify" (change/create/
   delete) them.


7. RFC Editor Considerations

   This document references [INETADDR] which is in the IESG last call
   stage. This document references it as an Internet Draft.  Please use
   the corresponding RFC number prior to publishing of this document as
   a RFC.


8. IANA Considerations

   This document describes the frameworkPib and frwkTcPib Policy
   Information Base (PIB) modules for standardization. An IANA assigned
   PIB number is requested for both [SPPI].
