Title : Network Security Requirements for Devices Implementing
Author(s) : G. Jones
Filename : draft-jones-opsec-00.txt
Pages : 65
Date : 2003-6-9
This document defines a list of security requirements for devices
that implement the Internet Protocol (IP). These requirements apply
to devices that makeup the network core infrastructure (such as
routers and switches) as well other devices that implement IP (e.g.,
cable modems, personal firewalls,hosts). A framework is defined for
specifying 'profiles', which are collections of devices applicable to
certain classes of devices. The goal is to provide consumers of
network equipment a clear, concise way of communicating their
security requirements to vendors of such equipment. Please send any

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.
