M. Bjorklund: AUTHOR [+2]
YANG is a data modeling language originally designed to model configuration and state data manipulated by the Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), NETCONF Remote Procedure Calls, and NETCONF notifications [RFC6241]. Since the publication of YANG version 1 [RFC6020], YANG has been used or proposed to be used for other protocols (e.g., RESTCONF [RESTCONF] and the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) Management Interface (CoMI) [CoMI]). Further, encodings other than XML have been proposed (e.g., JSON [RFC7951]).

The YANG 1.1 Data Modeling Language
YANG is a data modeling language used to model configuration data, state data, Remote Procedure Calls, and notifications for network management protocols. This document describes the syntax and semantics of version 1.1 of the YANG language. YANG version 1.1 is a maintenance release of the YANG language, addressing ambiguities and defects in the original specification. There are a small number of backward incompatibilities from YANG version 1. This document also specifies the YANG mappings to the Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF).
