Abstract

   The iFCP protocol [RFC4172] provides Fibre Channel fabric
   functionality on an IP network in which TCP/IP switching and routing
   elements replace Fibre Channel components.  The iFCP protocol is
   used between iFCP Gateways.  This draft provides a mechanism to
   monitor and control iFCP Gateway instances, and their associated
   sessions, using SNMP.

   This memo is a product of the IP Storage (IPS) working group within
   the Internet Engineering Task Force.  Comments are solicited and
   should be addressed to the working group's mailing list at
   ips@ietf.org and/or the authors.

1.  The Internet-Standard Management Framework

   For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
   Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
   RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
   accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
   Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
   Structure of Management Information (SMI).  This memo specifies a
   MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD
   58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC
   2580 [RFC2580].

2.  Introduction

   The iFCP protocol can be used by FC to IP based storage gateways for
   Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) storage interconnects.  Figure 1
   provides an example interconnect between iFCP gateways.

   The iFCP MIB Module is designed to allow SNMP to be used to monitor
   and manage local iFCP gateway instances, including the configuration
   of iFCP sessions between gateways.

3.  Technical Description

   The iFCP MIB Module is divided into sections for iFCP local gateway
   instance management, iFCP session management, and iFCP session
   statistics.

   The section for iFCP gateway management provides default settings
   and information about each local instance.  A single management
   entity can monitor multiple local gateway instances.  Each local
   gateway is conceptually an independent gateway that has both Fibre
   Channel and IP interfaces.  The default IP Time Out Value (IP_TOV)
   is configurable for each gateway.  Other standard MIBs, such as the
   Fibre Management MIB [RFC4044] or Interfaces Group MIB [RFC2863],
   can be used to manage non-iFCP specific gateway parameters.  The
   local gateway instance section provides iFCP specific information as
   well as optional links to other standard management MIBs.

   The iFCP session management section provides information on iFCP
   sessions that are using one of the local iFCP gateway instances.
   This section allows the management of specific iFCP parameters,
   including changing the IP_TOV from the default setting of the
   gateway.

   The iFCP session statistics section provides statistical information
   on the iFCP sessions that are using one of the local iFCP gateways.
   These tables augment the session management table.  Additional
   statistical information for an iFCP gateway or session, that is not
   iFCP specific, can be obtained using other standard MIBs.  The iFCP
   statistics are provided in both standard and low-capacity
   (counter32) methods.

   The following MIB module imports from RMON2-MIB [RFC2021], SNMPv2-
   SMI [RFC2578], SNMPv2-TC [RFC2579], SNMPv2-CONF [RFC2580], HCNUM-TC
   [RFC2856], IF-MIB [RFC2863], SNMP-FRAMEWORK-MIB [RFC3411], INET-
   ADDRESS-MIB [RFC4001], FC-MGMT-MIB [RFC4044], and ENTITY-MIB (v3)
   [RFC4133].

5.  IANA Considerations

   IANA is requested to make a unique MIB OID assignment under the
   transmission branch.

6.  Security Considerations

   There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB module
   with 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.

   Changing the following object values, with a MAX-ACCESS of read-
   write, may cause disruption in storage traffic:
        ifcpLclGtwyInstAddrTransMode
        ifcpLclGtwyInstFcBrdcstSupport
        ifcpLclGtwyInstDefaultIpTOV
        ifcpLclGtwyInstDefaultLTInterval
        ifcpSessionIpTOV

   Changing the following object value, with a MAX-ACCESS of read-
   write, may cause a user to lose track of the iFCP gateway:
        ifcpLclGtwyInstDescr


   Gibbons                Expires April 2006                        23
   Internet Draft              iFCP MIB                   October 2005

   Some of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects with
   a MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered sensitive
   or vulnerable in some network environments.  It is thus important to
   control even GET and/or NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly
   to even encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over
   the network via SNMP.

   The following object tables provide information about storage
   traffic sessions, and can indicate to a user who is communicating
   and exchanging storage data:
        ifcpLclGtwyInstTable
        ifcpSessionAttributesTable

   SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security.
   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 module.

   It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features
   as provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8),
   including full support for SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms (for
   authentication and privacy).

   Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT
   RECOMMENDED.  Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to
   enable cryptographic security.  It is then a customer/operator
   responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an
   instance of this MIB module 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.
