This document describes the key chain YANG data model.  Key chains
are commonly used for routing protocol authentication and other
applications requiring symmetric keys.  A key chain is a list
containing one or more elements containing a Key ID, key string,
send/accept lifetimes, and the associated authentication or
encryption algorithm.  By properly overlapping the send and accept
lifetimes of multiple key chain elements, key strings and algorithms
may be gracefully updated.  By representing them in a YANG data
model, key distribution can be automated.

This document is a product of the Routing Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

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 Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
