Abstract

� � This document defines a set of PRovisioning Classes (PRCs) and

� � textual conventions that are common to all clients that provision

� � policy using Common Open Policy Service (COPS) protocol for

� � Provisioning.

� � Structure of Policy Provisioning Information (SPPI) describes a

� � structure for specifying policy information that can then be

� � transmitted to a network device for the purpose of configuring policy

� � at that device.� The model underlying this structure is one of well-

� � defined (PRCs) and instances of these classes (PRIs) residing in a

� � virtual information store called the Policy Information Base (PIB).

� � One way to provision policy is by means of the (COPS) protocol with

� � the extensions for provisioning.� This protocol supports multiple

� � clients, each of which may provision policy for a specific policy

� � domain such as QoS, virtual private networks, or security.

� � As described in COPS usage for Policy Provisioning (COPS-PR), each

� � client supports a non-overlapping and independent set of PIB modules.

� � However, some PRovisioning Classes are common to all subject-

� � categories (client-types) and need to be present in each.
