Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2003


1. Introduction

   At the time of writing TLS uses public key certificates, or Kerberos,
   for authentication.

   These authentication methods do not seem well suited to the
   applications now being adapted to use TLS (IMAP [4], FTP [8], or
   TELNET [9], for example). Given that these protocols (and others like
   them) are designed to use the user name and password method of
   authentication, being able to safely use user names and passwords to
   authenticate the TLS connection provides a much easier route to
   additional security than implementing a public key infrastructure in
   certain situations.

   SRP is an authentication method that allows the use of user names and
   passwords over unencrypted channels without revealing the password to
   an eavesdropper. SRP also supplies a shared secret at the end of the
   authentication sequence that can be used to generate encryption keys.

   This document describes the use of the SRP authentication method for
   TLS.

   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 RFC 2119.

2. SRP Authentication in TLS

2.1 Modifications to the TLS Handshake Sequence

   The advent of SRP-6 [3] allows the SRP protocol to be implemented
   using the standard sequence of handshake messages defined in [1].

   The parameters to various messages are given in the following
   diagram.

2.1.1 Message Sequence

   Handshake Message Flow for SRP Authentication

          Client                                 Server
            |                                      |
       Client Hello (I) ------------------------>  |
            |  <---------------------------- Server Hello

   * Indicates optional or situation-dependent messages that are not
   always sent.

                                Figure 1

   The identifiers given after each message name refer to the SRP
   variables included in that message. The variables I, N, g, s, A, and
   B are defined in [3].

   An extended client hello message, as defined in [10], is used to send
   the client identifier (the user name).

2.1.2 Session Re-use

   The short handshake mechanism for re-using sessions for new
   connections, and renegotiating keys for existing connections will
   still work with the SRP authentication mechanism and handshake.

   When a client attemps to re-use a session that uses SRP



Taylor, et al.         Expires December 16, 2003                [Page 4]

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2003


   authentication, it MUST include the SRP extension carrying the user
   name (I) in the client hello message, in case the server cannot or
   will not allow re-use of the session, meaning a full handshake
   sequence is required.

   If the server does agree to re-use an existing session the server
   MUST ignore the information in the SRP extension of the client hello
   message, except for its inclusion in the finished message hashes.
   This is to ensure attackers cannot replace the authenticated identity
   without supplying the proper authentication information.

2.2 Text Preparation

   The user name and password strings shall be UTF-8 encoded Unicode,
   prepared using the "SASLprep" [7] profile of "stringprep" [6].

2.3 SRP Verifier Creation

   The verifier is created by applying the SRP-SHA1 mechanism as
   described in RFC 2945 [2] to the user name and password.

2.4 Changes to the Handshake Message Contents

   This section describes the changes to the TLS handshake message
   contents when SRP is being used for authentication. The definitions
   of the new message contents and the on-the-wire changes are given in
   Section 2.7.

2.4.1 Client hello

   The user name is appended to the standard client hello message using
   the hello message extension mechanism defined in [10].

   The client may offer SRP ciphersuites in the hello message but omit
   the SRP extension.  If the server would like to select an SRP
   ciphersuite in this case, the server will return a
   missing_srp_username alert (see Section 2.8) immediately after
   processing the client hello message.  This alert signals the client
   to resend the hello message, this time with the SRP extension.
   Through this idiom, the client can advertise that it supports SRP,
   but not have to prompt the user for his user name and password, nor
   expose the user name in the clear, unless necessary.

   If the server doesn't have a verifier for the given user name, the
   server MAY abort the handshake with an unknown_srp_username alert
   (see Section 2.8).  Alternatively, if the server wishes to hide the
   fact that this user name doesn't have a verifier, the server MAY
   simulate the protocol as if a verifier existed, but then reject the



Taylor, et al.         Expires December 16, 2003                [Page 5]

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2003


   client's finished message as if the password was incorrect.

   To simulate the existence of an entry for each user name, the server
   must consistently return the same salt (s) and group (g, N) values
   for the same user name.  For example, the server could store a secret
   "seed key" and then use hmac-sha1(seed_key, "salt" || user_name) to
   generate the salts.  For B, the server can return a random value
   between 2 and N-2 inclusive.  However, the server should take care to
   simulate computation delays.  One way to do this is to generate a
   fake verifier using the "seed key" approach, and then proceed with
   the protocol as usual.

2.4.2 Server certificate

   The server MUST send a certificate if it agrees to an SRP cipher
   suite that requires the server to provide additional authentication
   in the form of a digital signature. See Section 2.6 for details of
   which ciphersuites defined in this document require a server
   certificate to be sent.

   Because the server's certificate is only used for generating a
   digital signature in SRP cipher suites, the certificate sent MUST
   contain a public key that can be used for verifying digital
   signatures.

2.4.3 Server key exchange

   The server key exchange message contains the prime (N), the generator
   (g), and the salt value (s) read from the SRP password file based on
   the value of (I) received in the client hello extension. The server
   key exchange message also contains the server's public value (B).

   If the server has sent a certificate message, the server key exchange
   message MUST be signed.

   The group parameters (g, N) sent in this message MUST have N as a
   safe prime (a prime of the form N=2q+1, where q is also prime), and g
   as a generator % N.  The SRP group parameters in Appendix A are
   proven to have these properties, so the client SHOULD accept any
   parameters from this Appendix which have large enough moduli to meet
   his security requirements.  The client MAY accept other group
   parameters from the server, either by prior arrangement, or by
   checking the parameters himself.

   To check that N is a safe prime, the client should use some method
   such as performing 64 iterations of the Miller-Rabin test with random
   bases (selected from 2 to N-2) on both N and q (by performing 64
   iterations, the probability of a false positive is no more than



Taylor, et al.         Expires December 16, 2003                [Page 6]

   2^-128).  To check that g is a generator % N, the client can check
   that g^q equals -1 % N.  Performing these checks may be
   time-consuming: after checking new parameters, the client may want to
   add them to a known-good list.

   Group parameters that are not accepted via one of the above methods
   MUST be rejected with an illegal_parameter alert.

   The client MUST abort the handshake with an illegal_parameter alert
   if B % N is equal to zero.

2.4.4 Client key exchange

   The client key exchange message carries the client's public value
   (A).

   The server MUST abort the handshake with an illegal_parameter alert
   if A % N is equal to zero, 1, or -1.

2.5 Calculating the Pre-master Secret

   The shared secret resulting from the SRP calculations (S) (defined in
   [2]) is used as the pre-master secret.

   The finished messages perform the same function as the client and
   server evidence messages (M1 and M2) specified in [2]. If either the
   client or the server calculate an incorrect value, the finished
   messages will not be understood, and the connection will be dropped
   as specified in [1].

2.6 Cipher Suite Definitions

   The following cipher suites are added by this draft. The usage of AES
   ciphersuites is as defined in [5].

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA     = { 0x00,0x50 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA = { 0x00,0x51 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_DSS_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA = { 0x00,0x52 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA      = { 0x00,0x53 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA  = { 0x00,0x54 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA  = { 0x00,0x55 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA      = { 0x00,0x56 };



Taylor, et al.         Expires December 16, 2003                [Page 7]

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2003


      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA  = { 0x00,0x57 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_DSS_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA  = { 0x00,0x58 };

   Cipher suites that do not include a digital signature algorithm
   identifier assume the server is authenticated by its possesion of the
   SRP verifier.

   Cipher suites that begin with TLS_SRP_SHA_RSA or TLS_SRP_SHA_DSS
   require the server to send a certificate message containing a
   certificate with the specified type of public key, and to sign the
   server key exchange message using a matching private key.

   Implementations conforming to this specification MUST implement the
   TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA ciphersuite, SHOULD implement the
   TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA and TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA
   ciphersuites, and MAY implement the remaining ciphersuites.

2.7 New Message Structures

   This section shows the structure of the messages passed during a
   handshake that uses SRP for authentication. The representation
   language used is the same as that used in [1].

2.7.1 ExtensionType

   A new value, "srp(6)", has been added to the enumerated
   ExtensionType, defined in [10].  This value MUST be used as the
   extension number for the SRP extension.

2.7.2 Client Hello

   The "extension_data" field of the srp extension SHALL contain: opaque
   srp_I<1..2^8-1> where srp_I is the user name.

2.7.3 Server Key Exchange

   When the value of KeyExchangeAlgorithm is set to "srp", the server's
   SRP parameters are sent in the server key exchange message, encoded
   in a ServerSRPParams structure.

   If a certificate is sent to the client the server key exchange
   message must be signed. The following table gives the
   SignatureAlgorithm value to be used for each ciphersuite.

      opaque srp_B<1..2^16-1>;
   } ServerSRPParams;     /* SRP parameters */


2.7.4 Client Key Exchange

   When the value of KeyExchangeAlgorithm is set to "srp", the client's
   public value (A) is sent in the client key exchange message, encoded
   in an ClientSRPPublic structure.

   An extra value, srp, has been added to the enumerated
   KeyExchangeAlgorithm, originally defined in TLS [1].

   } ClientKeyExchange;

   enum { rsa, diffie_hellman, srp } KeyExchangeAlgorithm;

   struct {
      opaque srp_A<1..2^16-1>;
   } ClientSRPPublic;


2.8 Error Alerts

   Two new error alerts are defined:

   o  "unknown_srp_username" (120) - this alert MAY be sent by a server
      that receives an unknown user name.  This message is always fatal.

   o  "missing_srp_username" (121) - this alert MUST be sent by a server
      which would like to select an offered SRP ciphersuite, if the SRP
      extension is absent from the client's hello message.  This alert
      may be fatal or a warning.  If it is a warning, the server MUST
      restart its handshake protocol without closing the TLS session,
      and the client MAY either treat the warning as fatal and close the
      session, or send the server a new hello message on the same
      session.  By sending a new hello on the same session, the client
      can use the idiom described in 2.3.1 without terminating a current
      TLS session which might be protecting the handshake (and thus the
      user name).

3. Security Considerations

   If an attacker is able to steal the SRP verifier file, the attacker
   can masquerade as the real server, and can also use dictionary
   attacks to recover client passwords. Filesystem based X.509
   certificate installations are vulnerable to a similar attack unless
   the server's certificate is issued from a PKI that maintains
   revocation lists, and the client TLS code can both contact the PKI
   and make use of the revocation list.

   The client's user name is sent in the clear in the Client Hello
   message.  To avoid sending the user name in the clear, the client
   could first open a conventional anonymous, or server-authenticated
   session, then renegotiate an SRP-authenticated session with the
   handshake protected by the first session.

   The checks described in Section 2.4.3 and Section 2.4.4 on the
   received values for A and B are crucial for security and MUST be
   performed.

   The private exponentials (a and b in [2]) SHOULD be at least 256 bit
   random numbers, to give approximately 128 bits of security against
   certain methods of calculating discrete logarithms [12].  Increasing
   the length of these exponentials may increase security, but it also
   increases the computation cost."

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2003


Appendix A. SRP Group Parameters

   The 1024, 1536, and 2048-bit groups are taken from software developed
   by Tom Wu and Eugene Jhong for the Stanford SRP distribution, and
   subsequently proven to be prime.  The larger primes are taken from
   [11], but generators have been calculated that are primitive roots of
   N, unlike the generators in [11].

   The 1024, 1536, and 2048-bit groups MUST be supported.

   1.  1024-bit Group

       The hexadecimal value is:
