This document specifies the initial version of a YANG module
"iana-tunnel-type", which contains a collection of IANA-maintained
YANG identities used as interface types for tunnel interfaces. The
module reflects the "tunnelType" registry maintained by IANA. The
latest revision of this YANG module can be obtained from the IANA

Tunnel type values are not directly added to the Tunnel Interface
Types YANG module; they must instead be added to the "tunnelType"
IANA registry. Once a new tunnel type registration is made by IANA
for a new tunneling scheme or even an existing one that is not
already listed in the current registry (e.g., LISP, NSH), IANA will
update the Tunnel Interface Types YANG module accordingly.

Some of the IETF-defined tunneling techniques are not listed in the
current IANA registry. It is not the intent of this document to
update the existing IANA registry with a comprehensive list of tunnel
technologies. Registrants must follow the IETF registration procedure
for interface types whenever a new tunnel type is needed.

This document is a product of the Softwires Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
