Finding the right mix of security is crucial when developing applications and devices to ensure the data shared from both the end user and service provider is secure. For some high security requirement applications, ConfD’s built-in crypto support, which is based on OpenSSL libcrypto, may not meet the high security requirements.
In our latest application note “ConfD and High Security Applications”, we examine how to remove ConfD’s built-in cryptographic support and make use of external security components instead.

We have shared on a few occasions in the past our support for EANTC interoperability testing and that we participate both in the testing and as protocol experts in their NETCONF and YANG device interoperability tests. As the network device market continues to grow, so does the importance of ensuring that the programmable interfaces are indeed interoperable.
We invite you, if you don't already, to participate in the 2019 EANTC testing that presents results at the MPLS+SDN+NFV World Congress event in April 2019. The actual interoperability testing occurs at EANTC in Berlin a few weeks prior to the Congress. Test case scenario planning is in the initial stages now. The interoperability test cases involve interesting control and data plane use cases which are configured using NETCONF and YANG. To learn more about the event and testing you can go to the EANTC website.
Additionally, you can reach out to Kathrin Henze (email@example.com) at the EANTC to learn more about a commercial contract and testing deadlines.
We encourage you to participate in this industry interoperability event.When I think back to how we used to manage our devices, I am struck by how primitive and limiting the old methods were. I used to be involved in the design and programming of embedded systems and network attached devices. The vast majority of the time, management of what we were making was the last thing on our minds.
Read At this time of year, we want to send a special thanks to all our customers. Without you, we couldn't do what we do. We appreciate your support and input year after year on making ConfD the best solution for network device programmability.
We also want to thank all those who attended ConfD Developer Days 2018 and for helping this year's event be the most successful one yet.
Thank you for making Tail-f/Cisco the success it has become. We know it is because of each of you.
ConfD Developer Days 2018 – What I Experienced
I just spent the past week in San Jose with some of the best customers that I could ever ask for. As many of you know, last week was ConfD Developer Days 2018. The well-attended event was packed with great sessions on the importance of programmability in today’s hyper-focused network automation world.
ConfD and High Security Applications
In the United States, FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) is a set of rules which outline the basic security needs of cryptographic modules used in computer and telecommunication systems. These rules, or standards, are mandatory for US non-military, government-run systems, as well as for many healthcare and finance businesses that utilize cryptographic modules to protect sensitive data.
