1.  Introduction

   Access Control List (ACL) is one of the basic elements to configure
   device forwarding behavior.  It is used in many networking concepts
   such as Policy Based Routing, Firewalls etc.

   An ACL is an ordered set of rules that is used to filter traffic on a
   networking device.  Each rule is represented by an Access Control
   Entry (ACE).

   Each ACE has a group of match criteria and a group of action

   The match criteria consist of a tuple of packet header match criteria
   and metadata match criteria.

   o  Packet header matches apply to fields visible in the packet such
      as address or class of service or port numbers.

   o  Metadata matches apply to fields associated with the packet but
      not in the packet header such as input interface or overall packet

   The actions specify what to do with the packet when the matching
   criteria is met.  These actions are any operations that would apply
   to the packet, such as counting, policing, or simply forwarding.The
   list of potential actions is endless depending on the innovations of
   the networked devices.

2.  Problem Statement

   This document defines a YANG [RFC6020] data model for the
   configuration of ACLs.  It is very important that model can be easily
   reused between vendors and between applications.

   ACL implementations in every device may vary greatly in terms of the
   filter constructs and actions that they support.  Therefore this
   draft proposes a simple model that can be augmented by vendor
   proprietary models.

3.  Design of the ACL Model

   Although different vendors have different ACL data models, there is a
   common understanding of what access control list (ACL) is.  A network
   system usually have a list of ACLs, and each ACL contains an ordered
   list of rules, also known as access list entries - ACEs.  Each ACE
   has a group of match criteria and a group of action criteria.  The
   match criteria consist of packet header matching and metadata
   matching.  Packet header matching applies to fields visible in the
   packet such as address or class of service or port numbers.  Metadata
   matching applies to fields associated with the packet, but not in the
   packet header such as input interface, packet length, or source or
   destination prefix length.  The actions can be any sort of operation
   from logging to rate limiting or dropping to simply forwarding.
   Actions on the first matching ACE are applied with no processing of
   subsequent ACEs.  The model also includes overall operational state
   for the ACL and operational state for each ACE, targets where the ACL
   applied.  One ACL can be applied to multiple targets within the
   device, such as interfaces of a networked device, applications or
   features running in the device, etc.  When applied to interfaces of a
   networked device, the ACL is applied in a direction which indicates
   if it should be applied to packet entering (input) or leaving the
   device (output).

   This draft tries to address the commonalities between all vendors and
   create a common model, which can be augmented with proprietary
   models.  The base model is very simple and with this design we hope
   to achieve needed flexibility for each vendor to extend the base

3.1.  ACL Modules

   There are three YANG modules in the model.  The first module, "ietf-
   acl", defines generic ACL aspects which are common to all ACLs
   regardless of their type or vendor.  In effect, the module can be
   viewed as providing a generic ACL "superclass".  It imports the
   second module, "packet-headers".  The match container in "ietf-acl"
   uses groupings in "packet-headers".  The "packet-headers" modules can
   easily be extended to reuse definitions from other modules such as
   IPFIX [RFC5101] or migrate proprietary augmented module definitions
   into the standard module.

   Module "newco-acl" is an example of company proprietary model, that
   augments "ietf-acl" module.  It shows how to add additional match
   criteria, action criteria, and default actions when no ACE matches
   found.  All these are company proprietary extensions or system
   feature extensions. "newco-acl" is just an example and it is expected
   from vendors to create their own propietary models.

4.  ACL YANG Models

4.1.  IETF-ACL module

   "ietf-acl" is the standard top level module for Access lists.  It has
   a container for "access-list" to store access list information.  This
   container has information identifying the access list by a name("acl-
   name") and a list("access-list-entries") of rules associated with the
   "acl-name".  Each of the entries in the list("access-list-entries")
   indexed by the string "rule-name" have containers defining "matches"
   and "actions".  The "matches" define criteria used to identify
   patterns in "packet-fields".  The "actions" define behavior to
   undertake once a "match" has been identified.

   The packet fields module defines the necessary groups for matching on
   fields in the packet including ethernet, ipv4, ipv6, transport layer
   fields and metadata.  These groupings can be augmented to include
   other proprietary matching criteria.  Since the number of match
   criteria is very large, the base draft does not include these
   directly but references them by "uses" to keep the base module

4.3.  A company proprietary module example

   In the figure below is an example how proprietary models can be
   created on top of base ACL module.  It is a simple example of how to
   use 'augment' with an XPath expression which extends instances of a
   particular type.  In this example, all /ietf-acl:access-list/ietf-
   acl:access-list-entries/ietf-acl:matches are augmented with a new
   choice, protocol-payload-choice.  The protocol-payload-choice uses a
   grouping with an enumeration of all supported protocol values.  In
   other example, /ietf-acl:access-list/ietf-acl:access-list-entries/
   ietf-acl:actions are augmented with new choice of actions.  Here is
   an inclusive list of cases listed within a choice statement.

    module newco-acl {
      yang-version 1;

      namespace "urn:newco:params:xml:ns:yang:newco-acl";

      prefix newco-acl;

      import ietf-acl {
        prefix "ietf-acl";

      revision 2014-05-21{
        description "creating newo proprietary extensions to ietf-acl model";

        description "Newco proprietry simple filter matches";
        choice protocol-payload-choice {
          list protocol-payload {
            key value-keyword;
            ordered-by user;
            description "Match protocol payload";
            uses match-simple-payload-protocol-value;

      augment "/ietf-acl:access-lists/ietf-acl:access-list
      /ietf-acl:access-list-entries/ietf-acl:access-list-entry/ietf-acl:actions" {

        choice action {
          case count {
            description "Count the packet in the named counter";
              leaf count {
                type string;
          case policer {
            description "Name of policer to use to rate-limit traffic";
            leaf policer {
              type string;
          case hiearchical-policer {
            description "Name of hierarchical policer to use to rate-limit traffic";
            leaf hierarchitacl-policer{
              type string;

      augment "/ietf-acl:access-lists/ietf-acl:access-list" {
        container default-actions {
          description "Actions that occur if no access-list entry is matched.";
          leaf deny {
            type empty;

      grouping match-simple-payload-protocol-value {
         leaf value-keyword {
           description "(null)";
           type enumeration {
             enum icmp {
               description "Internet Control Message Protocol";
             enum icmp6 {
               description "Internet Control Message Protocol Version 6";
             enum range {
               description "Range of values";

   Dratf authors expect that different vendors will provide their own
   yang models as in the example above, which is the extension of the
   base model

4.4.  An ACL Example

   Requirement: Deny All traffic from bound for host
   from leaving.

   In order to achieve the requirement, an name access control list is
   needed.  The acl and aces can be described in CLI as the following:

           access-list ip iacl
           deny tcp host host

                                 Figure 1

   Here is the example acl configuration xml:

   <rpc message-id="101" xmlns:nc="urn:cisco:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-acl:1.0">
 // replace with IANA namespace when assigned
   <top xmlns="">

                                 Figure 2

4.5.  Port Range Usage Example

   When a lower-port and an upper-port are both present, it represents a
   range between lower-port and upper-port with both the lower-port and
   upper-port are included.  When only a lower-port presents, it
   represents a single port.

   With the follow XML snippet:


   This represents source ports 16384,16385, 16386, and 16387.

   With the follow XML snippet:


   This represents source ports greater than/equal to 16384.

   With the follow XML snippet:


   This represents port 21.

5.  Example of extending existing model for route filtering

   With proposed modular design, it is easy to extend the model with
   other features.  Those features can be standard features, like route
   filters.  Route filters match on specific IP addresses or ranges of
   prefixes.  Much like ACLs, they include some match criteria and
   corresponding match action(s).  For that reason, it is very simple to
   extend existing ACL model with route filtering.  The combination of a
   route prefix and prefix length along with the type of match
   determines how route filters are evaluated against incoming routes.
   Different vendors have different match types and in this model we are
   using only ones that are common across all vendors participating in
   this draft.  As in this example, the base ACL model can be extended
   with company proprietary extensions, described in the next section.

    module ietf-route-filter {
      yang-version 1;

      namespace "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-route-filter";

      prefix ietf-route-filter;

      import ietf-inet-types {
        prefix "ietf-types";

      import ietf-acl {
        prefix "ietf-acl";

6.  Linux nftables

   As Linux platform is becoming more popular as networking platform,
   the Linux data model is changing.  Previously ACLs in Linux were
   highly protocol specific and different utilities were used for it
   (iptables, ip6tables, arptables, ebtables).  Recently, this has
   changed and a single utility, nftables, has been provided.  This
   utility follows very similarly the same base model as proposed in
   this draft.  The nftables support input and output ACEs and each ACE
   can be defined with match and action.

7.  Security Considerations

   The YANG module defined in this memo is designed to be accessed via
   the NETCONF protocol [RFC6241] [RFC6241].  The lowest NETCONF layer
   is the secure transport layer and the mandatory-to-implement secure
   transport is SSH [RFC6242] [RFC6242].  The NETCONF access control
   model [RFC6536] [RFC6536] provides the means to restrict access for
   particular NETCONF users to a pre-configured subset of all available
   NETCONF protocol operations and content.

   There are a number of data nodes defined in the YANG module which are
   writable/creatable/deletable (i.e., config true, which is the
   default).  These data nodes may be considered sensitive or vulnerable
   in some network environments.  Write operations (e.g., <edit-config>)
   to these data nodes without proper protection can have a negative
   effect on network operations.

   TBD: List specific Subtrees and data nodes and their sensitivity/

8.  IANA Considerations

   This document registers a URI in the IETF XML registry [RFC3688]
   [RFC3688].  Following the format in RFC 3688, the following
   registration is requested to be made:

   URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-acl

   Registrant Contact: The IESG.

   XML: N/A, the requested URI is an XML namespace.

   This document registers a YANG module in the YANG Module Names
   registry [RFC6020].

   name: ietf-acl namespace: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-acl
   prefix: ietf-acl reference: RFC XXXX

9.  Acknowledgements

   Alex Clemm, Andy Bierman and Lisa Huang started it by sketching out
   an initial IETF draft in several past IETF meetings.  That draft
   included an ACL YANG model structure and a rich set of match filters,
   and acknowledged contributions by Louis Fourie, Dana Blair, Tula
   Kraiser, Patrick Gili, George Serpa, Martin Bjorklund, Kent Watsen,
   and Phil Shafer.  Many people have reviewed the various earlier
   drafts that made the draft went into IETF charter.

   Dean Bogdanovic, Kiran Agrahara Sreenivasa, Lisa Huang, and Dana
   Blair each evaluated the YANG model in previous draft separately and
   then work together, to created a new ACL draft that can be supported
   by different vendors.  The new draft removes vendor specific
   features, and gives examples to allow vendors to extend in their own
   proprietary ACL.  The earlier draft was superseded with the new one
   that received more participation from many vendors.
