Internet-Draft        RPKI Signed Object Template     September 28, 2010


1. Introduction

   The purpose of the Internet IP Address and Autonomous System (AS)
   Number Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) system is to support
   assertions by current resource holders of IP (v4 and v6) address
   space and AS numbers, based on the records of the organizations that
   act as Certification Authorities (CAs).  IP address and AS number
   resource information is carried in X.509 certificates via RFC 3779
   extensions [I-D.sidr-res-certs].  Other information assertions about
   resources are expressed via digitally signed, non-X.509 data
   structures that are referred to as "signed objects" in the RPKI
   context [I-D.sidr-arch]. This document standardizes a template for
   specifying signed objects that can be validated using the RPKI.

   RPKI signed objects make use of Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)
   [RFC5652] as a standard encapsulation format.  CMS was chosen to take
   advantage of existing open source software available for processing
   messages in this format.  RPKI signed objects adhere to a profile
   (specified in Section 2) of the CMS signed-data object.

   The template defined in this document for RPKI signed objects is not
   a complete specification for any particular type of signed object,
   and instead includes only the items which are common to all RPKI
   signed objects. That is, fully specifying a particular type of signed
   object requires an additional document that specifies the details
   which are specific to a particular type of signed object.  Such
   details include Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) [X.208-88]
   syntax for the object's payload and any additional steps required to
   validate the particular type of signed object. Section 4 describes in
   more detail the additional pieces that must be specified in order to
   define a new type of RPKI signed object that uses this template.
   Additionally, see [draft-ietf-sidr-roa-format] for an example of a
   document that uses this template to specify a particular type of
   signed object, the Route Origination Authorization.

1.1. Terminology

   It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the terms and concepts
   described in "Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Certificate
   and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Profile" [RFC5280] and "X.509
   Extensions for IP Addresses and AS Identifiers" [RFC3779], and
   "Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)" [RFC5652].

   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 [RFC2119].

1.2. Note on Algorithms

Internet-Draft        RPKI Signed Object Template     September 28, 2010


   Cryptographic Message Syntax is a general format capable of
   accommodating a wide variety of signature and digest algorithms.  The
   algorithms used in the RPKI (and associated key sizes) are specified
   in [I-D.sidr-rpki-algs].

2. Signed Object Syntax

   The RPKI signed object is a profile of the Cryptographic Message
   Syntax (CMS) [RFC5652] signed-data object.  The general format of a
   CMS object is:

      ContentInfo ::= SEQUENCE {
        contentType ContentType,
        content [0] EXPLICIT ANY DEFINED BY contentType }

      ContentType ::= OBJECT IDENTIFIER

   The ContentType is the signed-data type of id-data, namely the id-
   signedData OID, 1.2.840.113549.1.7.2. [RFC5652]

2.1. Signed-Data Content Type

   According to the CMS standard, the signed-data content type is the
   ASN.1 type SignedData:

      SignedData ::= SEQUENCE {
        version CMSVersion,
        digestAlgorithms DigestAlgorithmIdentifiers,
        encapContentInfo EncapsulatedContentInfo,
        certificates [0] IMPLICIT CertificateSet OPTIONAL,
        crls [1] IMPLICIT RevocationInfoChoices OPTIONAL,
        signerInfos SignerInfos }

      DigestAlgorithmIdentifiers ::= SET OF DigestAlgorithmIdentifier

      SignerInfos ::= SET OF SignerInfo

   Additionally, the SignerInfos set MUST contain only a single
   SignerInfo object.

2.1.1. version

   The version is the syntax version number.  It MUST be 3,
   corresponding to the signerInfo structure having version number 3.

2.1.2. digestAlgorithms

   The digestAlgorithms set contains the OIDs of the digest algorithm(s)



Lepinski, et al.         Expires April 1, 2011                  [Page 4]

Internet-Draft        RPKI Signed Object Template     September 28, 2010


   used in signing the encapsulated content. This set MUST contain
   exactly one digest algorithm OID, and the OID MUST be selected from
   those specified in [I-D.sidr-rpki-algs].

2.1.3. encapContentInfo

   encapContentInfo is the signed content, consisting of a content type
   identifier and the content itself.  The encapContentInfo represents
   the payload of the RPKI signed object.

        EncapsulatedContentInfo ::= SEQUENCE {
          eContentType ContentType,
          eContent [0] EXPLICIT OCTET STRING OPTIONAL }

        ContentType ::= OBJECT IDENTIFIER

2.1.3.1. eContentType

   This field is left undefined by this profile.  The eContentType is an
   OID specifying the type of payload in this signed object and MUST be
   specified by the Internet standards track document that defines the
   object.

2.1.3.2. eContent

   This field is left partially undefined by this profile.  The eContent
   is the payload of the signed object and MUST be specified by the
   Internet standards track document that defines the RPKI object.

   At the outermost level, the eContent field MUST be an ASN.1 SEQUENCE.
   The first element of the SEQUENCE MUST be the version number, in
   order to enable transition to new versions of signed objects over
   time.

        ContentTemplate ::= SEQUENCE {
          version [0] INTEGER DEFAULT 0,
          ... }

   The Internet standards track document that defines the specific RPKI
   object MUST specify the remaining fields, represented as ellipses
   (...).

2.1.4. certificates

   The certificates field MUST be included, and MUST contain exactly one
   certificate, the RPKI End Entity (EE) certificate needed to validate
   this signed object.

Internet-Draft        RPKI Signed Object Template     September 28, 2010


2.1.5. crls

   The crls field MUST be omitted.

2.1.6. signerInfos

   SignerInfo is defined in CMS as:

         SignerInfo ::= SEQUENCE {
           version CMSVersion,
           sid SignerIdentifier,
           digestAlgorithm DigestAlgorithmIdentifier,
           signedAttrs [0] IMPLICIT SignedAttributes OPTIONAL,
           signatureAlgorithm SignatureAlgorithmIdentifier,
           signature SignatureValue,
           unsignedAttrs [1] IMPLICIT UnsignedAttributes OPTIONAL }

2.1.6.1. version

   The version number MUST be 3, corresponding with the choice of
   SubjectKeyIdentifier for the sid.

2.1.6.2. sid

   The sid is defined as:

         SignerIdentifier ::= CHOICE {
           issuerAndSerialNumber IssuerAndSerialNumber,
           subjectKeyIdentifier [0] SubjectKeyIdentifier }

   For RPKI signed objects, the sid MUST be the SubjectKeyIdentifier
   that appears in the EE certificate carried in the CMS certificates
   field.

2.1.6.3. digestAlgorithm

   The digestAlgorithm MUST consist of the OID of a digest algorithm
   that conforms to the RPKI Algorithms and Key Size Profile
   specification [I-D.sidr-rpki-algs].

2.1.6.4. signedAttrs

   The signedAttrs is defined as:

         SignedAttributes ::= SET SIZE (1..MAX) OF Attribute

         Attribute ::= SEQUENCE {
           attrType OBJECT IDENTIFIER,



Lepinski, et al.         Expires April 1, 2011                  [Page 6]

Internet-Draft        RPKI Signed Object Template     September 28, 2010


           attrValues SET OF AttributeValue }

         AttributeValue ::= ANY

   The signedAttr element MUST be present and MUST include the content-
   type and message-digest attributes [RFC5652].  The signer MAY also
   include the signing-time signed attribute [RFC5652], the binary-
   signing-time signed attribute [RFC6019], or both signing-time
   attributes.  Other signed attributes MUST NOT be included.

   The signedAttr MUST include only a single instance of any particular
   attribute.  Additionally, even though the syntax allows for a SET OF
   AttributeValue, in an RPKI signed object the attrValues MUST consist
   of only a single AttributeValue.

2.1.6.4.1. Content-Type Attribute

   The ContentType attribute MUST be present.  The attrType OID for the
   ContentType attribute is 1.2.840.113549.1.9.3.

   The attrValues for the ContentType attribute MUST match the
   eContentType in the EncapsulatedContentInfo.  Thus, attrValues MUST
   contain the OID that specifies the payload type of the specific RPKI
   signed object carried in the CMS signed data structure.

2.1.6.4.2. Message-Digest Attribute

   The MessageDigest Attribute MUST be present.  The attrType OID for
   the MessageDigest Attribute is 1.2.840.113549.1.9.4.

   The attrValues for the MessageDigest attribute contains the output of
   the digest algorithm applied to the content being signed, as
   specified in Section 5.4 of [RFC5652].

2.1.6.4.3. SigningTime Attribute

   The SigningTime Attribute MAY be present. Note that the presence or
   absence of the SigningTime attribute MUST NOT affect the validity of
   the signed object (as specified in Section 3). The attrType OID for
   the SigningTime attribute is 1.2.840.113549.1.9.5.

         id-signingTime OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { iso(1) member-body(2)
             us(840) rsadsi(113549) pkcs(1) pkcs9(9) 5 }

   The attrValues for the SigningTime attribute is defined as:

         SigningTime ::= Time




Lepinski, et al.         Expires April 1, 2011                  [Page 7]

Internet-Draft        RPKI Signed Object Template     September 28, 2010


         Time ::= CHOICE {
           utcTime UTCTime,
           generalizedTime GeneralizedTime }

   The Time element specifies the time, based on the local system clock,
   at which the digital signature was applied to the content.

   The definition of Time matches the one specified in the 1997 version
   of X.509. Additional information regarding the use of UTCTime and
   GeneralizedTime can be found in [RFC5652].

2.1.6.4.4. BinarySigningTime Attribute

   The BinarySigningTime Attribute MAY be present. Note that the
   presence or absence of the BinarySigningTime attribute MUST NOT
   affect the validity of the signed object (as specified in Section 3).
   The attrType OID for the BinarySigningTime attribute is
   1.2.840.113549.1.9.16.2.46.

         id-aa-binarySigningTime OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { iso(1)
             member-body(2) us(840) rsadsi(113549) pkcs(1) pkcs9(9)
             smime(16) aa(2) 46 }

   The attrValues for the SigningTime attribute is defined as:

         BinarySigningTime ::= BinaryTime

         BinaryTime ::= INTEGER (0..MAX)

   The BinaryTime element specifies the time, based on the local system
   clock, at which the digital signature was applied to the content. The
   precise definition of the BinaryTime element can be found in
   [RFC6019].

2.1.6.5. signatureAlgorithm

   The signatureAlgorithm MUST conform to the RPKI Algorithms and Key
   Size Profile specification [I-D.sidr-rpki-algs].

2.1.6.6. signature

   The signature value is defined as:

         SignatureValue ::= OCTET STRING

   The signature characteristics are defined by the digest and signature
   algorithms.

2.1.6.7. unsignedAttrs

   unsignedAttrs MUST be omitted.

3. Signed Object Validation

   Before a relying party can use a signed object, the relying party
   MUST validate the signed object by verifying that all of the
   following conditions hold.  A relying party may perform these checks
   in any order.  Note that these checks are necessary but not
   sufficient: in general, further validation MUST be performed based on
   the specific type of signed object.

   1.  The signed object syntax complies with this specification. In
       particular, that each of the following is true:

       a.  The contentType of the CMS object is SignedData (OID
           1.2.840.113549.1.7.2)

       b.  The version of the SignedData object is 3.

       c.  The certificates field in the SignedData object is present
           and contains one EE certificate, the SubjectKeyIdentifier
           field of which matches the sid field of the SignerInfo
           object.

       d.  The crls field in the SignedData object is omitted.

       e.  The version of the SignerInfo is 3.

       f.  The signedAttrs field in the SignerInfo object is present and
           contains both the ContentType attribute (OID
           1.2.840.113549.1.9.3) and the MessageDigest attribute (OID
           1.2.840.113549.1.9.4).

       g.  The signedAttrs field in the SignerInfo object does not
           contain any attributes other than the following four: the
           ContentType attribute (OID 1.2.840.113549.1.9.3), the
           MessageDigest attribute (OID 1.2.840.113549.1.9.4), the
           SigningTime attribute (OID 1.2.840.113549.1.9.5), and the
           BinarySigningTime attribute (OID 1.2.840.113549.1.9.16.2.46).
           Note that the SigningTime and BinarySigningTime attributes
           MAY be present, but are not required.

       h.  The eContentType in the EncapsulatedContentInfo is an OID
           that matches the attrValues in the ContentType attribute.

       i.  The unsignedAttrs field in the SignerInfo object is omitted.

Internet-Draft        RPKI Signed Object Template     September 28, 2010


       j.  The digestAlgorithm in the SignedData and SignerInfo objects
           conforms to the RPKI Algorithms and Key Size Profile
           specification [I-D.sidr-rpki-algs].

       k.  The signatureAlgorithm in the SignerInfo object conforms to
           the RPKI Algorithms and Key Size Profile specification
           [I-D.sidr-rpki-algs].

   2.  The public key of the EE certificate (contained within the CMS
       signed-data object) can be used to successfully verify the
       signature on the signed object.

   3.  The EE certificate (contained within the CMS signed-data object)
       is a valid EE certificate in the RPKI as specified by [I-D.sidr-
       res-certs].  In particular, there exists a valid certification
       path from a trust anchor to this EE certificate.

   If the above procedure indicates that the signed object is invalid,
   then the signed object MUST be discarded and treated as though no
   signed object were present.  If the all of the conditions above are
   true, then the signed object may be valid.  The relying party MUST
   then perform any additional validation steps required for the
   particular type of signed object.

   Note that a previously valid signed object will cease to be valid
   when the associated EE certificate ceases to be valid (for example,
   when the end of the certificate's validity period is reached, or when
   the certificate is revoked by the authority that issued it).  See [I-
   D.sidr-res-certs] for a complete specification of resource
   certificate validity.

4. Definition of Specific Signed Objects

   Each RPKI signed object MUST be defined in an Internet standards
   track document based on this profile, by specifying the following
   data elements and validation procedure:

   1.  eContentType:  Obtain an OID to be used for the eContentType
       field in encapContentInfo.  This OID uniquely identifies the type
       of signed object.

   2.  eContent:  Define an ASN.1 syntax for the eContent field in
       encapContentInfo. The syntax MUST consist of an ASN.1 SEQUENCE
       whose first element is "version" expressed as an ASN.1 INTEGER.

   3.  Content-Type Attribute:  The mandatory Content-Type Attribute
       MUST have its attrValues field set to the same OID as
       eContentType in item 1.

Internet-Draft        RPKI Signed Object Template     September 28, 2010


   4.  Additional Validation:  Define a set of additional validation
       steps for the specific signed object. Before using this specific
       signed object, a relying party MUST perform both the generic
       validation steps in Section 3 above, as well as these additional
       steps.

5. Security Considerations

       There is no assumption of confidentiality for the data in an RPKI
       signed object.  The integrity and authenticity of each signed
       object is based on the verification of a digital signature for
       the object, and on the validation of the EE certificate used to
       perform that verification.  It is anticipated that signed objects
       will be stored in repositories that will be publicly accessible.

       Since RPKI signed objects make use of CMS as an encapsulation
       format, the security considerations for CMS apply [RFC5652].

6. IANA Considerations
