Abstract

This memo is a draft revision of the standards track RFC-2669.  Please
see "Revision Descriptions" below for a description of changes.  This
document or its successor will obsolete RFC-2669 when accepted.

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for
use with network management protocols in the Internet community.  In
particular, it defines a basic set of managed objects for SNMP-based
management of DOCSIS 1.0 compliant Cable Modems and Cable Modem
Termination Systems.

This memo specifies a MIB module in a manner that is compliant to the
SNMP SMIv2[5][6][7].  The set of objects is consistent with the SNMP
framework and existing SNMP standards.

1.  The SNMP Management Framework [to be replace by updated section]
The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major
components:

    o   An overall architecture, described in RFC 2271 [1].

    o   Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for the
        purpose of management. The first version of this Structure of
        Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1 and described in
        RFC 1155 [2], RFC 1212 [3] and RFC 1215 [4]. The second version,
        called SMIv2, is described in RFC 1902 [5], RFC 1903 [6] and RFC
        1904 [7].

    o   Message protocols for transferring management information. The
        first version of the SNMP message protocol is called SNMPv1 and
        described in RFC 1157 [8]. A second version of the SNMP message
        protocol, which is not an Internet standards track protocol, is
        called SNMPv2c and described in RFC 1901 [9] and RFC 1906 [10].
        The third version of the message protocol is called SNMPv3 and
        described in RFC 1906 [10], RFC 2272 [11] and RFC 2274 [12].

    o   Protocol operations for accessing management information. The
        first set of protocol operations and associated PDU formats is
        described in RFC 1157 [8]. A second set of protocol operations
        and associated PDU formats is described in RFC 1905 [13].

    o   A set of fundamental applications described in RFC 2273 [14] and
        the view-based access control mechanism described in RFC 2275
        [15].

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the
Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are defined
using the mechanisms defined in the SMI.

This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2. A MIB
conforming to the SMIv1 can be produced through the appropriate
translations. The resulting translated MIB must be semantically
equivalent, except where objects or events are omitted because no
translation is possible (use of Counter64). Some machine readable
information in SMIv2 will be converted into textual descriptions in
SMIv1 during the translation process. However, this loss of machine
readable information is not considered to change the semantics of the
MIB.

2.  Glossary

The terms in this document are derived either from normal cable system
usage, or from the documents associated with the Data Over Cable Service
Interface Specification process.

2.1.  CATV

Originally "Community Antenna Television", now used to refer to any
cable or hybrid fiber and cable system used to deliver video signals to
a community.

INTERNET-DRAFT          DOCSIS Cable Device MIB                July 2000


3.  Overview

This MIB provides a set of objects required for the management of DOCSIS
compliant Cable Modems (CM) and Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS).
The specification is derived from the DOCSIS Radio Frequency Interface
specification [16].  Please note that the DOCSIS 1.0 standard only
requires Cable Modems to implement SNMPv1 and to process IPv4 customer
traffic. Design choices in this MIB reflect those requirements.
DOCSIS1.1 requires support for SNMPv3 and the changes in this MIB over
the previous proposed standard version reflect those additional
requirements.  Future versions of DOCSIS are are expected to require
support for IPv6 as both a CPE protocol and one supported by the network
elements of the DOCSIS CMTS/CM system.

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
"SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED",  "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
document are to be interpreted as described in [19].

3.1.  Structure of the MIB

This MIB is structured into seven groups:

o    The docsDevBase group extends the MIB-II 'system' group with
     objects needed for cable device system management.

o    The docsDevNmAccessGroup provides a minimum level of SNMP access
     security (see Section 3 of [18]).

o    The docsDevSoftware group provides information for network-
     downloadable software upgrades.  See "Handling of Software
     Upgrades" below..

o    The docsDevServer group provides information about the progress of
     the interaction between the CM or CMTS and  various provisioning
     servers.

o    The docsDevEvent group provides control and logging for event
     reporting.

o    The docsDevFilter group configures filters at link layer and IP
     layer for bridged data traffic.  This group consists of a link-
     layer filter table, docsDevFilterLLCTable, which is used to manage
     the processing and forwarding of non-IP traffic; an IP packet
     classifier table, docsDevFilterIpTable, which is used to map
     classes of packets to specific policy actions; a policy table,
     docsDevFilterPolicyTable, which maps zero or more policy actions
     onto a specific packet classification, and one or more policy
     action tables.

     At this time, this MIB specifies only one policy action table,
     docsDevFilterTosTable, which allows the manipulation of the type of
     services bits in an IP packet based on matching some criteria.  The

INTERNET-DRAFT          DOCSIS Cable Device MIB                July 2000


     working group may add additional policy types and action tables in
     the future, for example to allow QOS to modem service identifier
     assignment based on destination.

o    The docsDevCpe group provides control over which IP addresses may
     be used by customer premises equipment (e.g. PCs) serviced by a
     given cable modem.  This provides anti-spoofing control at the
     point of origin for a large cable modem system.  This group is
     separate from docsDevFilter primarily as this group is only
     implemented on the Cable Modem (CM) and MUST NOT be implemented on
     the Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS).

3.2.  Management requirements

3.2.1.  Handling of Software upgrades

The Cable Modem software upgrade process is documented in [16].  From a
network management station, the operator:

o    sets docsDevSwServer to the address of the TFTP server for software
     upgrades

o    sets docsDevSwFilename to the file pathname of the software upgrade
     image

o    sets docsDevSwAdminStatus to upgrade-from-mgt

One reason for the SNMP-initiated upgrade is to allow loading of a
temporary software image (e.g., special diagnostic software) that
differs from the software normally used on that device without changing
the provisioning database.

Note that software upgrades should not be accepted blindly by the cable
device. The cable device may refuse an upgrade if:

o    The download is incomplete.

o    The file contents are incomplete or damaged.

o    The software is not intended for that hardware device (may include
     the case of a feature set that has not been purchased for this
     device).

3.2.2.  Events and Traps

This MIB provides control facilities for reporting events through
syslog, traps, and non-volatile logging.  If events are reported through
traps, the specified conventions must be followed.  Other means of event
reporting are outside the scope of this document.

The definition and coding of events is vendor-specific.  In deference to
the network operator who must troubleshoot multi-vendor networks, the


Expires January 2001                                            [Page 7]

INTERNET-DRAFT          DOCSIS Cable Device MIB                July 2000


circumstances and meaning of each event should be reported as human-
readable text.  Vendors SHOULD provide time-of-day clocks in CMs to
provide useful timestamping of events.

For each vendor-specific event that is reportable via TRAP, the vendor
must create an enterprise-specific trap definition.  Trap definitions
MUST include the event reason encoded as DisplayString and should be
defined as:

trapName NOTIFICATION-TYPE
        OBJECTS {
            ifIndex,
            eventReason,
            other useful objects
        }
        STATUS      current
        DESCRIPTION
            "trap description"
        ::= Object Id

Note that ifIndex is only included if the event or trap is interface
related.

An example (fake) vendor defined trap might be:

xyzVendorModemDropout NOTIFICATION-TYPE
        OBJECTS {
            eventReason,
            xyzModemHighWatermarkCount
        }
        STATUS  current
        DESCRIPTION
           "Sent by a CMTS when a configurable number of modems
        (xyzModemHysteresis) de-register or become unreachable during
        the sampling period (5 minutes).  Used to warn a management
        station about a catastrophic cable plant outage."
        ::= { xyzTraps 23 }

In this example eventReason is  a DisplayString providing a human
readable error message, and xyzModemHighWatermarkCount is a Gauge32
which indicates the maximum number of modems during the epoch.

The last digit of the trap OID for enterprise-specific traps must match
docsDevEvId.  For SNMPv1-capable Network Management systems, this is
necessary to correlate the event type to the trap type.  Many Network
Management systems are only capable of trap filtering on an enterprise
and single-last-digit basis.

3.2.3.  Trap Throttling

The CM and CMTS MUST provide support for trap message throttling as
described below.  The network operator can employ message rate


Expires January 2001                                            [Page 8]

INTERNET-DRAFT          DOCSIS Cable Device MIB                July 2000


throttling or trap limiting by manipulating the appropriate MIB
variables.

3.2.3.1.  Trap rate throttling

Network operators may employ either of two rate control methods.  In the
first method, the device ceases to send traps when the rate exceeds the
specified maximum message rate.  It resumes sending traps only if
reactivated by a network management station request.

In the second method, the device resumes sending traps when the rate
falls below the specified maximum message rate.

The network operator configures the specified maximum message rate by
setting the measurement interval (in seconds), and the maximum number of
traps to be transmitted within the measurement interval.  The operator
can query the operational throttling state (to determine whether traps
are enabled or blocked by throttling) of the device, as well as query
and set the administrative throttling state (to manage the rate control
method) of the device.

3.2.3.2.  Limiting the trap rate

Network operators may wish to limit the number of traps sent by a device
over a specified time period.  The device ceases to send traps when the
number of traps exceeds the specified threshold.  It resumes sending
traps only when the measurement interval has passed.

The network operator defines the maximum number of traps he is willing
to handle and sets the measurement interval to a large number (in
hundredths of a second).  For this case, the administrative throttling
state is set to stop at threshold which is the maximum number of traps.

See "Techniques for Managing Asynchronously Generated Alerts" [17] for
further information.

3.3.  Protocol Filters

The Cable Device MIB provides objects for both LLC and IP protocol
filters.  The LLC protocol filter entries can be used to limit CM
forwarding to a restricted set of network-layer protocols (such as IP,
IPX, NetBIOS, and Appletalk).

The IP protocol filter entries can be used to restrict upstream or
downstream traffic based on source and destination IP addresses,
transport-layer protocols (such as TCP, UDP, and ICMP), and source and
destination TCP/UDP port numbers.

In general, a cable modem applies filters (or more properly,
classifiers) in an order appropriate to the layering model.
Specifically, the inbound MAC (or LLC) layer filters are applied first,
then the "special" filters, then the IP layer inbound filters, then the

IP layer outbound filters, then any final LLC outbound filters.

3.3.1.  Inbound LLC Filters - docsDevFilterLLCTable

The inbound LLC (or MAC or level-2) filters are contained in the
docsDevFilterLLCTable and are applied to level-2 frames entering the
cable modem from either the RF MAC interface or from one of the CPE
(ethernet or other) interfaces.  These filters are used to prohibit the
processing and forwarding of certain types of level-2 traffic that may
be disruptive to the network.  The filters, as currently specified, can
be set to cause the modem to either drop frames which match at least one
filter, or to process a frame which matches at least one filter.  Some
examples of possible configurations would be to only permit IP (and ARP)
traffic, or to drop NETBUEI traffic.

3.3.2.  Special Filters

Special filters are applied after the packet is accepted from the MAC
layer by the IP module, but before any other processing is done.  They
are filters that apply only to a very specific class of traffic.

3.3.2.1.  IP Spoofing Filters - docsDevCpeTable

IP spoofing filters are applied to packets entering the modem from one
of the CPE interfaces and are intended to prevent a subscriber from
stealing or mis-using IP addresses that were not assigned to the


Expires January 2001                                           [Page 10]

INTERNET-DRAFT          DOCSIS Cable Device MIB                July 2000


subscriber.  If the filters are active (enabled), the source address of
the IP packet must match at least one IP address in this table or it is
discarded without further processing.

The table can be automatically populated where the first N different IP
addresses seen from the CPE side of the cable modem are used to
automatically populate the table.  The spoofing filters are specified in
the docsDevCpeTable and the policy for automatically creating filters in
that table is controlled by docsDevCpeEnroll and docsDevCpeMax as well
as the network management agent.

3.3.2.2.  SNMP Access Filters - docsDevNmAccessTable

The SNMP access filters are applied to SNMP packets entering from any
interface and destined for the cable modem.  If the packets enter from a
CPE interface, the SNMP filters are applied after the IP spoofing
filters.  The filters only apply to SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c traffic, and are
not consulted for SNMPv3 traffic (and need not be implemented by a v3
only agent).  SNMPv3 access control is specified in the User Security
Model MIB in [12].

With the completion of the SNMP coexistence document, RFC 2576 [21],
docsDevNmAccess table is obsolete and has been deprecated in this
version of the MIB.  See the body of the MIB for the description of how
agents should handle the interaction between RFC 2576 MIBs and this MIB.

docsDevNmAccessTable specified a mechanism for limiting SNMP access
based on interface.  That capability has been retained as a set of
augmenting objects to the vacmAccessTable of the view-based access
control MIB, RFC 2575 [22].  Please see the description for
docsDevVacmAccessExtTable in the body of the MIB below. Basically, SNMP
packets are tagged with the interface through which they are received by
the agent.  If that interface is not included in the set of interfaces
referenced by this table for a particular view, then that view is not
visible for that SNMP request.

3.3.3.  IP Filtering - docsDevIpFilterTable

The IP Filtering table acts as a classifier table.  Each row in the
table describes a template against which IP packets are compared.  The
template includes source and destination addresses (and their associated
masks), upper level protocol (e.g. TCP, UDP), source and destination
port ranges, TOS and TOS mask. A row also contains interface and traffic
direction match values which have to be considered in combination.  All
columns of a particular row must match the appropriate fields in the
packet, and must match the interface and direction items for the packet
to result in a match to the packet.

When classifying a packet, the table is scanned beginning with the
lowest number filter.  If the agent finds a match, it applies the group
of policies specified.  If the matched filter has the continue bit set,
the agent continues the scan possibly matching additional filters and


Expires January 2001                                           [Page 11]

INTERNET-DRAFT          DOCSIS Cable Device MIB                July 2000


applying additional policies.  This allows the agent to take one set of
actions for the 24.0.16/255.255.255.0 group and one set of actions for
telnet packets to/from 24.0.16.30 and these sets of actions may not be
mutually exclusive.

Once a packet is matched, one of three actions happen based on the
setting of docsDevFilterIpControl in the row.  The packet may be
dropped, in which case no further processing is required.  The packet
may be accepted and processing of the packet continues.  Lastly, the
packet may have a set of policy actions applied to it.  If
docsDevFilterIpContinue is set to true, scanning of the table continues
and additional matches may result.

When a packet matches, and docsDevFilterIpControl in the filter matched
is set to 'policy', the value of docsDevFilterIpPolicyId is used as a
selector into the docsDevFilterPolicyTable.  The first level of
indirection may result in zero or more actions being taken based on the
match.  The docsDevFilterPolicyTable is scanned in row order and all
rows where docsDevFilterPolicyId equals docsDevFilterIpPolicyId have the
action specified by docsDevFilterPolicyValue 'executed'.  For example, a
value pointing to an entry in the docsDevFilterTosTable may result in
the re-writing of the TOS bits in the IP packet which was matched.
Another possibility may be to assign an output packet to a specific
output upstream queue.  An even more complex action might be to re-write
the TOS value, assign the packet to an upstream service ID, and drop it

20, 20, docsDevFilterTosStatus.10 -- Mark this packet with TOS 5

25, 30, queueEntry.10   -- Silver service queue

This table describes some special processing for packets originating
from either the first or second CPE device which results in their
queuing on to special upstream traffic queues and for the "gold" service
results in having the packets marked with a TOS of 5.  The 10, 20, 60
and 65 entries are generic entries that would generally be applied to
all traffic to this CM.  The 30, 40 and 45 entries are specific to a
particular CPE's service assignments.  The ordering here is a bit
contrived, but is close to what may actually be required by the operator
to control various classes of customers.

3.3.4.  Outbound LLC Filters

Lastly, any outbound LLC filters are applied to the packet just prior to
it being emitted on the appropriate interface.  This MIB does not
specify any outbound LLC filters, but it is anticipated that the QOS

requirements.  If so, those filters would be applied as described here.

        DESCRIPTION
            "This is a convenience syntax for setting the value of a
        bit set object which depicts a set of interfaces.  Upon read
        an object of this type always returns other (1).  Upon a valid
        set, this causes the related interface bit set object (as
        indicated in the object description which uses this syntax) in
        the same row to be set to a bit set consisting of the
        interfaces (and ONLY the interfaces) which match the class
        type represented by this object.

        allCpe - all interfaces which face the customer.
        allNetwork - all interfaces which do not face the customer -
          e.g. for a CM the HFC MAC interface.
        allCpeEthernet, allCpeUsb, allCpeFirewire - all interfaces
          which face the customer of a particular type.
        allExternal - all interfaces which have a external physical
          instantiation, e.g. CPE Ethernet, HFC MAC, PCI Bus
        allInternal - all interfaces which point towards either the
          devices own stack, or towards an application residing on
          the device
        self - the interface which points to the device's own stack
        all - all interfaces.
        application1-4 - a specific application residing on the CM or
        CMTS.

        The specific mapping of which values of this object  map to
        which interfaces is out of scope for this document (and in
        general is set by the vendor).

        Certain of these classes of interfaces may not exist on
        specific agents.  In which case, setting this object to those
        values results in related interface bit set being set to an
        empty bit set. all, allCpe and allNetwork MUST be valid
        settings for this object on any compliant agent and MUST
        result in at least one interface bit being set in
        the related bit set.

        DESCRIPTION
            "An ordered list of filters or classifiers to apply to
             IP traffic. Filter application is ordered by the filter
             index, rather than by a best match algorithm (Note that
             this implies that the filter table may have gaps in the
             index values). Packets which match no filters will have
             policy 0 in the docsDevFilterPolicyTable applied to them if
             it exists. Otherwise, Packets which match no filters
             are discarded or forwarded according to the setting of
             docsDevFilterIpDefault.

             Any IP packet can theoretically match multiple rows of
             this table.  When considering a packet, the table is
             scanned in row index order (e.g. filter 10 is checked
             before filter 20).  If the packet matches that filter
             (which means that it matches ALL criteria for that row),
             actions appropriate to docsDevFilterIpControl and
             docsDevFilterPolicyId are taken.  If the packet was
             discarded processing is complete.  If
             docsDevFilterIpContinue is set to true, the filter
             comparison continues with the next row in the table
             looking for additional matches.

             If the packet matches no filter in the table, the packet
             is accepted or dropped for further processing based on
             the setting of docsDevFilterIpDefault. If the packet is
             accepted, the actions specified by policy group 0
             (e.g. the rows in docsDevFilterPolicyTable which have a
             value of 0 for docsDevFilterPolicyId) are taken if that
             policy group exists.

             Logically, this table is consulted twice during the
             processing of any IP packet - once upon its acceptance
             from the L2 entity, and once upon its transmission to the
             L2 entity.  In actuality, for cable modems, IP filtering
             is generally the only IP processing done for transit

5.  Acknowledgments

This document was produced by the IPCDN Working Group.  It is based on a
document written by Pam Anderson from CableLabs, Wilson Sawyer from
BayNetworks, and Rich Woundy from Continental Cablevision.  The original
working group editor, Guenter Roeck of cisco Systems, did much of the
grunt work of putting the document into its current form.

Special thanks is also due to Azlina Palmer, who helped a lot reviewing
the document.

6.  Revision Descriptions

[Note to RFC Editor - this section may be removed upon publication as an
RFC.]  This document contains the following revisions over RFC2669:

o    All IPv4 address objects were either deprecated and replaced, or
     mirrored with IPv6 objects where appropriate.

o    Objects which were obviated by the SNMPv3 coexistence MIBs have
     been deprecated. E.g. docsDevNmAccessTable.  The SNMPv3 VACM table
     has been augmented with objects which can limit access based on the
     interface on which an agent (CM) receives SNMP packets.

o    The interface pointer objects in the filter tables have been
     replaced with a bit set object and convience enumeration object to
     deal with the fact that CMs have been redefined as multiple CPE
     interface devices.

o    Minor updates to the description text have been made to a number of
     objects to clarify their meaning.

o    The compliance statements were updated to reflect current
     requirements.  The entire RFC2669 compliance statement was omitted.

8.  Security Considerations

This MIB relates to a system which will provide metropolitan public
internet access.  As such, improper manipulation of the objects
represented by this MIB may result in denial of service to a large
number of end-users.  In addition, manipulation of the
docsDevNmAccessTable, docsDevFilterLLCTable, docsDevFilterIpTable and
the elements of the docsDevCpe group may allow an end-user to increase
their service levels, spoof their IP addresses, change the permitted
management stations, or affect other end-users in either a positive or
negative manner.

There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB that have a
MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write and/or read-create.  Such objects may be
considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments.  The

support for SET operations in a non-secure environment without proper
protection can have a negative effect on network operations.  In
addition to those mentioned above:

o    The use of docsDevNmAccessTable to specify management stations is
     considered to be only limited protection and does not protect
     against attacks which spoof the management station's IP address.
     The use of stronger mechanisms such as SNMPv3 security should be
     considered where possible.  Specifically, SNMPv3 VACM and USM MUST
     be used with any v3 agent which implements this MIB.
     Administrators may also wish to consider whether even read access
     to docsDevNmAccessTable may be undesirable under certain
     circumstances.

o    The CM may have its software changed by the actions of the
     management system.  An improper software load may result in
     substantial vulnerabilities and the loss of the ability of the
     management system to control the cable modem.

o    The device may be reset by setting docsDevResetNow = true(1). This
     causes the device to reload its configuration files as well as
     eliminating all previous non-persistent network management
     settings. As such, this may provide a vector for attacking the
     system.

o    Setting docsDevEvThrottleAdminStatus = unconstrained(1) (which is
     also the DEFVAL) may cause flooding of traps, which can disrupt
     network service.

This MIB does not affect confidentiality of services on a cable modem
system.  [20] specifies the implementation of the DOCSIS Baseline
privacy mechanism.  The working group expects to issue a MIB for the
management of this mechanism at a later time.

SNMPv1 by itself is not a secure environment.  Even if the network
itself is secure (for example by using IPSec), even then, there is no
control as to who on the secure network is allowed to access and GET/SET
(read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB.

It is recommended that the implementers consider the security features
as provided by the SNMPv3 framework.  Specifically, the use of the
User-based Security Model [12]  and the View-based Access Control Model
[15] is recommended.

It is then a customer/user responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity
giving access to an instance of this MIB, is properly configured to give
access to the objects only to those principals (users) that have
legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them.
