      Using the NETCONF Protocol over Transport Layer Security (TLS)                     with Mutual X.509 Authentication


   The Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) provides mechanisms to    install, manipulate, and delete the configuration of network devices.    This document describes how to use the Transport Layer Security (TLS)    protocol with mutual X.509 authentication to secure the exchange of    NETCONF messages.  This revision of RFC 5539 documents the new    message framing used by NETCONF 1.1 and it obsoletes RFC 5539.
