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 PRovisioning Classes (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 Common Open Policy
Service (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.
This document defines a set of PRCs and textual conventions that are
common to all clients that provision policy using COPS for

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
