To set up network infrastructure satisfying end-to-end requirements, it is not only necessary to run appropriate protocols on components but also to correctly configure these components. Configuration is the �glue� for logically integrating components at and across multiple protocol layers. Each component has configuration parameters, each of which can be set to a definite value. However, today, the large conceptual gap between end-to-end requirements and configurations is manually bridged. This causes large numbers of configuration errors whose adverse effects on security, reliability, and high cost of deployment of network infrastructure are well documented.
