EAP Re-authentication Protocol Extensions for Authenticated Anticipatory
                            Keying (ERP/AAK)
                      draft-ietf-hokey-erp-aak-05

Abstract

   The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is a generic framework
   supporting multiple types of authentication methods.

   The EAP Re-authentication Protocol (ERP) specifies extensions to EAP
   and the EAP keying hierarchy to support an EAP method-independent
   protocol for efficient re-authentication between the peer and an EAP
   re-authentication server through any authenticator.

   Authenticated Anticipatory Keying (AAK) is a method by which
   cryptographic keying material may be established prior to handover
   upon one or more candidate attachment points (CAPs).  AAK uses the
   AAA infrastructure for key transport.

   This document specifies the extensions necessary to enable AAK
   support in ERP.

1.  Introduction

   The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) [RFC3748] is a generic
   framework supporting multiple types of authentication methods.  In
   systems where EAP is used for authentication, it is desirable to not
   repeat the entire EAP exchange with another authenticator.  The EAP
   Re-authentication Protocol (ERP) [RFC5296] specifies extensions to
   EAP and the EAP keying hierarchy to support an EAP method-independent
   protocol for efficient re-authentication between the peer and an EAP
   re-authentication server through any authenticator.  The re-
   authentication server may be in the home network or in the local
   network to which the peer is connecting.

   Authenticated Anticipatory Keying (AAK) [RFC5836] is a method by
   which cryptographic keying materials may be established prior to
   handover upon one or more candidate attachment points (CAPs).  AAK
   utilizes the AAA infrastructure for key transport.

   This document specifies the extensions necessary to enable AAK
   support in ERP.

3.  ERP/AAK Overview

   ERP/AAK is intended to allow the establishment of cryptographic
   keying materials on a single Candidate Attachment Points prior to the
   arrival of the MH at the Candidate Access Network (CAN).  The
   document also specifies a method by which the SAP may send the
   identities of neighboring attachment points to the peer in the EAP-
   Initiate/Re-auth-Start message.

   It is assumed that the peer has previously completed full EAP
   authentication.  Figure 1 shows the general protocol exchange by
   which the keying material is established on the CAP.  This document
   only discusses the case of distributing the key to a single CAP.

Internet-Draft                   ERP/AAK                  September 2011


   ERP/AAK re-uses the packet format defined by ERP, but specifies a new
   flag to differentiate EAP early-authentication from EAP re-
   authentication.  The peer initiates ERP/AAK itself, or does so in
   response to an EAP-Initiate/Re-Auth-Start message from the SAP.  In
   this document, it is required that the SAP should support ERP/AAK.
   If either the peer or the SAP does not support ERP/AAK, it should
   fall back to full EAP authentication.

   The peer sends an early-authentication request message (EAP-Initiate/
   Re-auth with the 'E' flag set) containing the keyName-NAI, the NAS-
   Identifier, rIK and sequence number.  The realm in the keyName-NAI
   field is used to locate the peer's ERP/AAK server.  The NAS-
   Identifier is used to identify the CAP.  The rIK is used to protect
   the message.  The sequence number is used for replay protection.

   The SAP encapsulates the early-authentication message into a AAA
   message and sends it to the peer's ERP/AAK server in the realm
   indicated in the keyName-NAI field.

   Upon receiving the message, the ERP/AAK server first checks its
   integrity and freshness, then authorizes the CAP presented in the
   NAS-Identifier TLV(s) via the NAS-Identifier.  After the CAP is
   authenticated and authorized successfully, the ERP/AAK server derives
   the pRK and the subsequent pMSK for the CAP.

   The ERP/AAK server transports the pMSK to the authenticated and
   authorized CAP(s) via AAA as described in Section 7.

   Finally, the ERP/AAK server sends the early-authentication finish
   message (EAP-Finish/Re-auth with E-flag set) containing the
   determined CAP to the peer via the SAP.

4.  ERP/AAK Key Hierarchy

   As an optimization of ERP, ERP/AAK uses key hierarchy similar to that
   of ERP.  The EMSK is used to derive the ERP/AAK pre-established Root
   Key (pRK).  Similarly, the ERP/AAK pre-established Integrity Key
   (pIK) and the pre-established Master Session Key (pMSK) are derived
   from the pRK.  The pMSK is established for the CAP(s) when the peer
   early authenticates to the network.  The pIK is established for the
   peer to re-authenticate the network after handover.  The hierarchy
   relationship is illustrated in Figure 2, below.

                                 Figure 2

   The EMSK and DSRK both can be used to derive the pRK.  In general,
   the pRK is derived from the EMSK in case of the peer moving in the
   home AAA realm and derived from the DRSK in case of the peer moving
   in the visited AAA realm.  The DSRK is delivered from the EAP server
   to the ERP/AAK server as specified in [I-D.ietf-dime-local-keytran].
   If the peer has previously been authenticated by means of ERP or ERP/
   AAK, the DSRK SHOULD be directly re-used.

                                 Figure 3

   The pRK is used to derive the pIK and pMSK for the CAP(s).

   'E' - The E flag is used to indicate early-authentication.

   Reserved: MUST be set to 0.

   TVs and TLVs

   NAS-Identifier: As defined in [RFC5296], it is carried in a TLV
   payload.  It is used by the SAP to advertise the identifier(s) of
   CAP(s) to the peer.  One or more NAS-Identifier TLVs MAY be included
   in the EAP-Initiate/Re-auth-Start packet if the SAP has performed CAP
   discovery.

   If the EAP-Initiate/Re-auth-Start packet is not supported by the
   peer, it is discarded silently.

   keyName-NAI: As defined in RFC 5296 [RFC5296], this is carried in a
   TLV payload.  The Type is 1.  The NAI is variable in length, not
   exceeding 253 octets.  The username part of the NAI is the EMSKname
   used to identify the peer.  The realm part of the NAI is the peer's
   home domain name or the domain to which the peer is currently
   attached.  Exactly one keyName-NAI attribute SHALL be present in an
   EAP-Initiate/Re-auth packet.

   NAS-Identifier: As defined in RFC 5296 [RFC5296], it is carried in a
   TLV payload.  It is used to indicate the identifier of a CAP.  Though
   this document only introduces the case of a single CAP, two or more
   NAS-Identifier may be included in the EAP-Initiate/Re-auth packet to
   identify multiple CAPs.

   Sequence number: It is carried in a TV payload.  The Type is TBD
   (which is lower than 128).  It is used in the derivation of the pMSK
   for each CAP.  Each NAS-Identifier in the packet MUST be associated
   with a unique sequence number.

   Cryptosuite

   This field indicates the integrity algorithm used for ERP/AAK.  Key
   lengths and output lengths are either indicated or obvious from the
   cryptosuite name.  We specify some cryptosuites below:

   0  RESERVED

   1  HMAC-SHA256-64

   2  HMAC-SHA256-128

   3  HMAC-SHA256-256

   HMAC-SHA256-128 is mandatory to implement and should be enabled in
   the default configuration.

   Authentication Tag

   This field contains the integrity checksum over the ERP/AAK packet,
   excluding the authentication tag field itself.  The length of the
   field is indicated by the Cryptosuite.

   If the EAP-Initiate/Re-auth packet is not supported by the SAP, it is
   discarded silently.

   Flags

   'x' - The x flag is reserved.  It MUST be set to 0.

   'E' - The E flag is used to indicate early-authentication.

   The rest of the 4 bits (Resved) MUST be set to 0 and ignored on
   reception.

   SEQ

   A 16-bit sequence number is used for replay protection.

   TVs and TLVs

   keyName-NAI: As defined in[RFC5296], this is carried in a TLV
   payload.  The Type is 1.  The NAI is variable in length, not
   exceeding 253 octets.  The realm part of the NAI is the home domain
   name.  Exactly one keyName-NAI attribute SHALL be present in an EAP-
   Finish/Re-auth packet.

   ERP/AAK-Key: It is carried in a TLV payload for the key container.
   The type is TBD.  One or more than one ERP/AAK-key may be present in
   an EAP-Finish/Re-auth packet.

   ERP/AAK-Key ::=
        { sub-TLV: NAS-Identifier }
        { sub-TLV: pMSK-lifetime }
        { sub-TLV: pRK-lifetime }

        { sub-TLV: Cryptosuites }

      NAS-Identifier: It is carried in a sub-TLV payload.  It is used to
      indicate the identifier of candidate authenticator.  There exactly
      one instance of the NAS-Identifier TLV MUST be present in the ERP/
      AAK-Key TLV.

      pMSK-lifetime: It is carried in a sub-TLV payload.  The Type is
      TBD.  The value field is a 32-bit field and contains the lifetime
      of the pMSK in seconds.  If the 'L' flag is set, the pMSK Lifetime
      attribute SHOULD be present.

      pRK-lifetime: It is carried in a sub-TLV payload.  The Type is
      TBD.  The value field is a 32-bit field and contains the lifetime
      of the pRK in seconds.  If the 'L' flag is set, the pRK Lifetime
      attribute SHOULD be present.

      List of Cryptosuites: This is a sub-TLV payload.  The Type is TBD.
      The value field contains a list of cryptosuites, each 1 octet in
      length.  The allowed cryptosuite values are as specified in
      Section 5.2, above.  The server SHOULD include this attribute if
      the cryptosuite used in the EAP-Initiate/Re-auth message was not
      acceptable and the message is being rejected.  The server MAY
      include this attribute in other cases.  The server MAY use this
      attribute to signal to the peer about its cryptographic algorithm
      capabilities.

   Cryptosuite

   This field indicates the integrity algorithm and PRF used for ERP/
   AAK.  Key lengths and output lengths are either indicated or obvious
   from the cryptosuite name.

   Authentication Tag

   This field contains the integrity checksum over the ERP/AAK packet,
   excluding the authentication tag field itself.  The length of the
   field is indicated by the Cryptosuite.

5.4.  TV/TLV and sub-TLV Attributes

   The TV and TLV attributes are the same specified as section 5.3.4 of
   [RFC5296].  In this document, some new TLV(s) which may be present in
   the EAP-Initiate or EAP-Finish messages are defined as below:

      Sequence number - This is a TV payload.  The type is TBD.

Internet-Draft                   ERP/AAK                  September 2011


      ERP/AAK-Key - This is a TLV payload.  The type is TBD.

   The format of sub-TLV attributes that may be present in the EAP-
   Initiate or EAP-Finish messages is:

    0                   1                   2                   3
    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |     Type      |    Length     |            Value ...
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   The following types are defined in this document:

      pRK Lifetime: This is a TV payload.  The type of this sub-TLV is
      TBD.

      pMSK Lifetime: This is a TV payload.  The type of this sub-TLV is
      TBD.

      List of Cryptosuites: This is a TLV payload.  The type of this
      sub-TLV is TBD.

6.  Lower Layer Considerations

   Similar to ERP, some lower layer specifications may need to be
   revised to support ERP/AAK; refer to section 6 of [RFC5296] for
   additional guidance.

7.  AAA Transport Considerations

   AAA transport of ERP/AAK messages is the same as AAA transport of the
   ERP message [RFC5296].  In addition, the document requires AAA
   transport of the ERP/AAK keying materials delivered by the ERP/AAK
   server to the CAP.  Hence, a new Diameter ERP/AAK application message
   should be specified to transport the keying materials.

8.  Security Considerations

   This section provides an analysis of the protocol in accordance with
   the AAA key management requirements specified in [RFC4962]

   o  Cryptographic algorithm independence: ERP-AAK satisfies this
      requirement.  The algorithm chosen by the peer is indicated in the
      EAP-Initiate/Re-auth message.  If the chosen algorithm is
      unacceptable, the EAP server returns an EAP- Finish/Re-auth
      message with Failure indication

   o  Strong, fresh session keys: ERP-AAK results in the derivation of
      strong, fresh keys that are unique for the given CAP.  An pMSK is
      always derived on-demand when the peer requires a key with a new
      CAP.  The derivation ensures that the compromise of one pMSK does
      not result in the compromise of a different pMSK at any time.

   o  Limit key scope: The scope of all the keys derived by ERP-AAK is
      well defined.  The pRK is used to derive the pIK and pMSK for the
      CAP.  Different sequence numbers for each CAP MUST be used to
      derive the unique pMSK.

   o  Replay detection mechanism: For replay protection of ERP-AAK
      messages, a sequence number associated with the pMSK is used.

   o  Authenticate all parties: The EAP Re-auth Protocol provides mutual
      authentication of the peer and the server.  The peer and SAP are
      authenticated via ERP.  The CAP is authenticated and trusted by
      the SAP.

   o  Peer and authenticator authorization: The peer and authenticator
      demonstrate possession of the same key material without disclosing
      it, as part of the lower layer secure authentication protocol.

   o  Keying material confidentiality: The peer and the server derive
      the keys independently using parameters known to each entity.

   o  Uniquely named keys: All keys produced within the ERP context can
      be referred to uniquely as specified in this document.

   o  Prevent the domino effect: Different sequence numbers for each CAP
      MUST be used to derive the unique pMSK.  So the compromise of one
      pMSK does not hurt any other CAP.

   o  Bind key to its context: the pMSK are binded to the context where
      the sequence numbers are transmitted.

   o  Confidentiality of identity: this is the same with ERP protocol as
      analyzed in [RFC5296].

   o  Authorization restriction: All the keys derived are limited in
      lifetime by that of the parent key or by server policy.  Any
      domain-specific keys are further restricted to be used only in the
      domain for which the keys are derived.  Any other restrictions of
      session keys may be imposed by the specific lower layer and are
      out of scope for this specification.
