NETCONF Protocol

NETCONF (Network Configuration Protocol) is a network management protocol developed by the IETF to manage and configure network devices. It provides mechanisms to install, manipulate, and delete the configuration of network devices. NETCONF uses XML for data encoding and operates over a secure transport protocol, typically SSH, to ensure secure communication. The protocol supports transaction-based configuration changes, ensuring atomicity and consistency. NETCONF is widely used in conjunction with YANG data models to define the structure and constraints of configuration and state data manipulated by the protocol.
