  Diameter IKEv2 PSK: Pre-Shared Key-based Support for IKEv2 Server to
                      Diameter Server Interaction
               draft-ietf-dime-ikev2-psk-diameter-09.txt

Abstract

   The Internet Key Exchange protocol version 2 (IKEv2) is a component
   of the IPsec architecture and is used to perform mutual
   authentication as well as to establish and to maintain IPsec security
   associations (SAs) between the respective parties.  IKEv2 supports
   several different authentication mechanisms, such as the Extensible
   Authentication Protocol (EAP), certificates, and pre-shared keys.

   Diameter interworking for Mobile IPv6 between the Home Agent, as a
   Diameter client, and the Diameter server has been specified.
   However, that specification focused on the usage of EAP and did not
   include support for pre-shared key based authentication available
   with IKEv2.  This document specifies the IKEv2 Server to the Diameter
   server communication when the IKEv2 Peer authenticates using the
   Internet Key Exchange v2 with Pre-Shared Key.

Internet-Draft             Diameter IKEv2 PSK                August 2011


1.  Introduction

   The Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) protocol [RFC5996] is
   used to mutually authenticate two parities and to establish a
   security association (SA) that can be used to efficiently secure the
   communication between the IKEv2 Peer and Server, for example, using
   Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) [RFC4303] and/or Authentication
   Header (AH) [RFC4302].  The IKEv2 protocol allows several different
   mechanisms for authenticating a IKEv2 Peer to be used, such as the
   Extensible Authentication Protocol, certificates, and pre-shared key.

   From a service provider perspective, it is important to ensure that a
   user is authorized to use the services.  Therefore, the IKEv2 Server
   must verify that the IKEv2 Peer is authorized for the requested
   services possibly with the assistance of the operator's Diameter
   servers.  [RFC5778] defines the home agent as a Diameter client to
   the Diameter server communication when the mobile node authenticates
   using the IKEv2 protocol with the Extensible Authentication Protocol
   (EAP) [RFC3748] or using the Mobile IPv6 Authentication Protocol
   [RFC4285].  This document specifies the IKEv2 Server to the Diameter
   server communication when the IKEv2 Peer authenticates using the
   Internet Key Exchange v2 with Pre-Shared Key.

   Figure 1 depicts the reference architecture for this document.

   IKEv2 Peer and the Home Agent acts as an IKEv2 server.  In this use
   case Internet Key Exchange v2 (IKEv2) with pre-shared key based
   initiator authentication is used for the setup of the IPsec SAs.  The
   HA obtains the pre-shared key using the Diameter application
   specified herein to obtain the pre-shared key.

   This document does not assume that the IKEv2 Server has the pre-
   shared key (PSK) with the IKEv2 Peer.  Instead, it allows for the PSK
   to be obtained for a specific IKEv2 session and exchanged between
   IKEv2 Server and the Home Authentication, Authorization and
   Accounting (HAAA) server.  The protocol provides IKEv2 attributes to
   allow the HAAA to compute a PSK specific key for the session if
   desired (see Section 10).  This is accomplished through the use of a
   new Diameter application specifically designed for performing IKEv2
   authorization decisions.  This document focuses on the IKEv2 server,
   as a Diameter client, communicating to the Diameter server and
   specifies the Diameter application needed for this communication.  It
   is left to protocols leveraging this Diameter application to specify
   PSK derivation.  For example see [X.S0047] and [X.S0058].  This
   document specifies the default procedure for derivation of the PSK
   used in IKEv2 authentication when protocols leveraging this Diameter
   application do not specify their own derivation procedure.  Selection
   of either default or other PSK derivation procedure is left to
   agreement between the HAAA server and the IKEv2 Peer, and is outside
   the scope of this document.

4.  Protocol Description

4.1.  Support for IKEv2 and Pre-Shared Keys

   When IKEv2 is used with PSK-based initiator authentication, the
   Diameter commands IKEv2-PSK-Request/Answer defined in this document
   are used between IKEv2 server and a Home AAA server (HAAA) to
   authorize the IKEv2 Peer for the services.  Upon receiving the
   IKE_AUTH message from the IKEv2 Peer, the IKEv2 Server uses the
   information received in IDi [RFC5996] to identify the IKEv2 Peer and
   the SPI if available to determine the correct PSK for this IKEv2
   Peer.  If there is no PSK found associated with this IKEv2 Peer, the
   IKEv2 Server MUST send an Authorize-Only (Auth-Request-Type set to
   "Authorize-Only") Diameter IKEv2-PSK message with the IKEv2 Peer's
   IDi payload and SPI if available to the HAAA to obtain the PSK.  The
   IDi payload extracted from the IKE_AUTH message contains an identity
   that is meaningful for the Diameter infrastructure, such as a Network
   Access Identifier (NAI), and SHALL be used by the IKEv2 Server to
   populate the User-Name AVP in the Diameter message.  The IKEv2 Server
   SHALL also include in the same Diameter message the IKEv2-Nonces AVP
   with the initiator and responder nonces (Ni and Nr) exchanged during
   initial IKEv2 exchange.  Finally, if IDr payload was included in
   IKE_AUTH message received from the IKEv2 Peer, the IKEv2 Server SHALL
   also include in this same message the Responder-Identity AVP
   containing the received IDr.

   The IKEv2 Server sends the IKEv2-PSK-Request message to the IKEv2
   Peer's HAAA.  The Diameter message is routed to the correct HAAA as
   per [RFC3588].

   Upon receiving Diameter IKEv2-PSK-Request message from the IKEv2
   Server, the HAAA SHALL use the User-Name AVP to retrieve the
   associated keying material.  When the default PSK generation
   procedure specified in this document is used, the PSK derivation
   follows the methodology similar to that specified in Section 3.1 of
   [RFC5295], specifically:

 PSK = KDF(Root Key Material, key label | "\0" | Ni | Nr | IDi | length)


   Where:

   o  KDF is the default key derivation function based on HMAC-SHA-256
      as specified in Section 3.1.2 of [RFC5295].

   o  Root Key Material is the key available to the protocol leveraging
      this Diameter application, e.g., the long term shared secret that
      would be provisioned to be used for IKEV2, or the Extended Master

Internet-Draft             Diameter IKEv2 PSK                August 2011


      Session Key (EMSK) as the result of prior EAP authentication etc.
      Selection of this value is left up to the protocol leveraging this
      Diameter application.

   o  Key label is set to 'psk4ikev2@ietf.org'.

   o  | denotes concatenation

   o  "\0" is a NULL octet (0x00 in hex)

   o  length is a 2-octet unsigned integer in network byte order

   When applications using this protocol define their own PSK generation
   algorithm it is strongly RECOMMENDED that the nonces Ni and Nr are
   used in the computation.  It is also RECOMMENDED that IDi be used.
   IDr SHOULD NOT be used in the PSK generation algorithm.  Applications
   that want to use IDr in the computation should take into
   consideration that the IDr asserted by the IKEv2 peer may not be the
   same as the IDr returned by the IKEv2 responder.  This mismatch will
   result in different PSKs being generated.  The HAAA returns the PSK
   to the IKEv2 Server using the Key AVP as specified in
   [I-D.ietf-dime-local-keytran].

   Once the IKEv2 Server receives the PSK from the HAAA, the IKEv2
   Server verifies the IKE_AUTH message received from the IKEv2 Peer.
   If the verification of AUTH is successful, the IKEv2 Server sends the
   IKE message back to the IKEv2 Peer.

4.2.  Session Management

   The HAAA may maintain Diameter session state or may be stateless.
   This is indicated by the presence or absence of the Auth-Session-
   State AVP included in the Answer message.  The IKEv2 Server MUST
   support the Authorization Session State Machine defined in [RFC3588].

4.2.1.  Session-Termination-Request/Answer

   In the case where HAAA is maintaining session state, when the IKEv2
   Server terminates the SA it SHALL send a Session-Termination-Request
   (STR) message [RFC3588] to inform the HAAA that the authorized
   session has been terminated.

   The Session-Termination-Answer (STA) message [RFC3588] is sent by the
   HAAA to acknowledge the notification that the session has been
   terminated.

4.2.2.  Abort-Session-Request/Answer

   The Abort-Session-Request (ASR) message [RFC3588] is sent by the HAAA
   to the IKEv2 Server to terminate the authorized session.  When the
   IKEv2 Server receives the ASR message, it MUST delete the
   corresponding IKE_SA and all CHILD_SAs set up through it.

   The Abort-Session-Answer (ASA) message [RFC3588] is sent by the IKEv2
   Server in response to an ASR message.

6.  Attribute Value Pair Definitions

   This section defines new AVPs for the IKEv2 with PSK.

6.1.  IKEv2-Nonces

   The IKEv2-Nonces AVP (Code TBD4) is of type Grouped and contains the
   nonces exchanged between the IKEv2 Peer and the IKEv2 Server during
   IKEv2 initial exchange.  The nonces are used for PSK generation.


               IKEv2-Nonces ::= < AVP Header: TBD4>
                                {Ni}
                                {Nr}
                               *[AVP]

6.1.1.  Ni

   The Ni AVP (AVP Code TBD5) is of type OctetString and contains the
   IKEv2 initiator nonce.

6.1.2.  Nr

   The Nr AVP (AVP Code TBD6) is of type OctetString and contains the
   IKEv2 responder nonce.

6.2.  Responder-Identity

   The Responder-Identity AVP (AVP Code TBD7) is of type UTF8String and
   contains the identity of the responder.  In the scope of this
   specification, the value is extracted from the IKEv2 IDr payload, if
   available in the IKE_AUTH message sent by the IKEv2 Peer.

9.  IANA Considerations

   Upon publication of this memo as an RFC, IANA is requested to assign
   values as described in the following sections.

9.1.  Command Codes

   IANA is requested to allocate a command code value for the following
   new command from the Command Code namespace defined in [RFC3588].

      Command Code                     | Value
      ---------------------------------+------
      IKEv2-PSK-Request/Answer         | TBD2



9.2.  AVP Codes

   This specification requires IANA to register the following new AVPs
   from the AVP Code namespace defined in [RFC3588].


   o  IKEv2-Nonces - TBD4

   o  Ni - TBD5

   o  Nr - TBD6

   o  Responder-Identity - TBD7


   The AVPs are defined in Section 6.

9.3.  AVP Values

   IANA is requested to create a new value for the Key-Type AVP.  The
   new value TBD3 signifies that IKEv2 PSK is being sent.

9.4.  Application Identifier

   This specification requires IANA to allocate one new value "Diameter
   IKE PSK" from the Application Identifier namespace defined in
   [RFC3588].

   Application Identifier         | Value
   -------------------------------+------
   Diameter IKE PSK (IKEPSK)      | TBD1

10.  Security Considerations

   The security considerations of the Diameter Base protocol [RFC3588]
   are applicable to this document (e.g., it is expected that Diameter
   protocol is used with security mechanism and that Diameter messages
   are secured).

   In addition, the assumption is that the IKEv2 Server and the Diameter
   Server where the PSK is generated are in a trusted relationship.
   Hence, the assumption is that there is an appropriate security
   mechanism to protect the communication between these servers.  For
   example the IKEv2 Server and the Diameter server would be deployed in
   the same secure network or would utilize transport layer security as
   specified in [RFC3588].

   The Diameter messages between the IKEv2 Server and the HAAA may be
   transported via one or more AAA brokers or Diameter agents.  In this
   case, the IKEv2 Server to the Diameter server AAA communication is
   hop-by-hop protected, hence relies on the security properties of the
   intermediating AAA inter- connection networks, AAA brokers, and
   Diameter agents.  Furthermore, any agents that process IKEv2-PSK-
   Answer messages can see the contents of the Key AVP.

   To mitigate the threat of exposing long lived PSK, this specification
   expects that the HAAA derives and returns the associated PSK to the
   IKEv2 Server.  Given that PSK derivation is security-critical, for
   the PSK derivation this specification recommends the use of short
   lived secrets, possibly based on a previous network access
   authentication, if such secrets are available.  To ensure key
   freshness and to limit the key scope, this specification strongly
   recommends the use of nonces included in IKEv2-PSK-Request.  The
   specifics of key derivation depend on the security characteristics of
   the system that is leveraging this specification (for example see
   [X.S0047] and [X.S0058]), therefore this specification does not
   define how the Diameter server derives required keys for these
   systems.  For systems and protocols that leverage this Diameter
   application but do not specify the key derivation procedure, this
   document specifies the default key derivation procedure that
   preserves expected security characteristics.
