The standardization of network configuration interfaces for use with
the Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) requires a structured
and secure operating environment that promotes human usability and
multi-vendor interoperability.  There is a need for standard
mechanisms to restrict NETCONF protocol access for particular users
to a pre-configured subset of all available NETCONF protocol
operations and content.  This document defines such an access control

This document is a product of the Network Configuration Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

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 Internet
