The Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) gives access to native
capabilities of the devices within a network, defining methods for
manipulating configuration databases, retrieving operational data,
and invoking specific operations.  YANG provides the means to define
the content carried via NETCONF, both data and operations.  Using
both technologies, standard modules can be defined to give
interoperability and commonality to devices, while still allowing
devices to express their unique capabilities.

This document describes how NETCONF and YANG help build network
management applications that meet the needs of network operators.
