Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2007


1.  Introduction

   At the time of writing TLS [TLS] uses public key certificates, pre-
   shared keys, or Kerberos for authentication.

   These authentication methods do not seem well suited to certain
   applications now being adapted to use TLS ([IMAP] for example).
   Given that many protocols are designed to use the user name and
   password method of authentication, being able to safely use user
   names and passwords provides an easier route to additional security.

   SRP ([SRP], [SRP-6]) 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 [REQ].

2.  SRP Authentication in TLS

2.1.  Notation and Terminology

   The version of SRP used here is sometimes referred to as "SRP-6"
   [SRP-6].  This version is a slight improvement over "SRP-3", which
   was described in [SRP] and [SRP-RFC].

   This document uses the variable names defined in [SRP-6]:

      N, g: group parameters (prime and generator)

      s: salt

      B, b: server's public and private values

      A, a: client's public and private values

      I: user name (aka "identity")

      P: password

      v: verifier

      k: SRP-6 multiplier

   The | symbol indicates string concatenation, the ^ operator is the
   exponentiation operation, and the % operator is the integer remainder
   operation.

   Conversion between integers and byte-strings assumes the most-
   significant bytes are stored first, as per [TLS] and [SRP-RFC].  In
   the following text, if a conversion from integer to byte-string is
   implicit, the most-significant byte in the resultant byte-string MUST
   be non-zero.  If a conversion is explicitly specified with the
   operator PAD(), the integer will first be implicitly converted, then
   the resultant byte-string will be left-padded with zeros (if
   necessary) until its length equals the implicitly-converted length of
   N.

2.2.  Handshake Protocol Overview

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

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

2.3.  Text Preparation

   The user name and password strings SHALL be UTF-8 encoded Unicode,
   prepared using the [SASLPREP] profile of [STRINGPREP].

2.4.  SRP Verifier Creation

   The verifier is calculated as described in section 3 of [SRP-RFC].
   We give the algorithm here for convenience.

   The verifier (v) is computed based on the salt (s), user name (I),
   password (P), and group parameters (N, g).  The computation uses the
   [SHA1] hash algorithm:

        x = SHA1(s | SHA1(I | ":" | P))
        v = g^x % N

2.5.  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 2.8.

2.5.1.  Client Hello

   The user name is appended to the standard client hello message using
   the extension mechanism defined in [TLSEXT] (see Section 2.8.1).
   This user name extension is henceforth called the "SRP extension".



Taylor, et al.          Expires December 15, 2007               [Page 5]

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2007


   The following subsections give details of its use.

2.5.1.1.  Session Resumption

   When a client attempts to resume a session that uses SRP
   authentication, the client MUST include the SRP extension in the
   client hello message, in case the server cannot or will not allow
   session resumption, meaning a full handshake is required.

   If the server does agree to resume 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.

2.5.1.2.  Missing SRP Extension

   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 SHOULD return a fatal
   "unknown_psk_identity" alert (see Section 2.9) immediately after
   processing the client hello message.

   A client receiving this alert MAY choose to reconnect and resend the
   hello message, this time with the SRP extension.  This allows the
   client to 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.

2.5.1.3.  Unknown SRP Username

   If the server doesn't have a verifier for the user name in the SRP
   extension, the server MAY abort the handshake with an
   "unknown_psk_identity" alert (see Section 2.9).  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 client's finished message with a
   "bad_record_mac" alert, 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 (N, g) 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 [HMAC].  For B, the server can return a random
   value between 1 and N-1 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.

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2007


2.5.2.  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 2.7 for details of
   which ciphersuites defined in this document require a server
   certificate to be sent.

2.5.3.  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 user name (I) received in the client hello extension.

   The server key exchange message also contains the server's public
   value (B).  The server calculates this value as B = k*v + g^b % N,
   where b is a random number which SHOULD be at least 256 bits in
   length, and k = SHA1(N | PAD(g)).

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

   The group parameters (N, g) sent in this message MUST have N as a
   safe prime (a prime of the form N=2q+1, where q is also prime).  The
   integers from 1 to N-1 will form a group under multiplication % N,
   and g MUST be a generator of this group.  In addition, the group
   parameters MUST NOT be specially chosen to allow efficient
   computation of discrete logarithms.

   The SRP group parameters in Appendix A satisfy the above
   requirements, so the client SHOULD accept any parameters from this
   Appendix which have large enough N values to meet her security
   requirements.

   The client MAY accept other group parameters from the server, if the
   client has reason to believe these parameters satisfy the above
   requirements, and the parameters have large enough N values.  For
   example, if the parameters transmitted by the server match parameters
   on a "known-good" list, the client may choose to accept them.  See
   Section 3 for additional security considerations relevant to the
   acceptance of the group parameters.

   Group parameters that are not accepted via one of the above methods
   MUST be rejected with an "insufficient_security" alert (see
   Section 2.9).

   The client MUST abort the handshake with an "illegal_parameter" alert
   if B % N = 0.

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2007


2.5.4.  Client Key Exchange

   The client key exchange message carries the client's public value
   (A).  The client calculates this value as A = g^a % N, where a is a
   random number which SHOULD be at least 256 bits in length.

   The server MUST abort the handshake with an "illegal_parameter" alert
   if A % N = 0.

2.6.  Calculating the Pre-master Secret

   The pre-master secret is calculated by the client as follows:

        I, P = <read from user>
        N, g, s, B = <read from server>
        a = random()
        A = g^a % N
        u = SHA1(PAD(A) | PAD(B))
        k = SHA1(N | PAD(g))
        x = SHA1(s | SHA1(I | ":" | P))
        <premaster secret> = (B - (k * g^x)) ^ (a + (u * x)) % N

   The pre-master secret is calculated by the server as follows:

        N, g, s, v = <read from password file>
        b = random()
        k = SHA1(N | PAD(g))
        B = k*v + g^b % N
        A = <read from client>
        u = SHA1(PAD(A) | PAD(B))
        <premaster secret> = (A * v^u) ^ b % N

   The finished messages perform the same function as the client and
   server evidence messages (M1 and M2) specified in [SRP-RFC].  If
   either the client or the server calculate an incorrect premaster
   secret, the finished messages will fail to decrypt properly, and the
   other party will return a "bad_record_mac" alert.

   If a client application receives a "bad_record_mac" alert when
   performing an SRP handshake, it should inform the user that the
   entered user name and password are incorrect.

2.7.  Cipher Suite Definitions

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





Taylor, et al.          Expires December 15, 2007               [Page 8]

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2007


      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD2 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD3
      };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_DSS_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD4
      };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD5 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD6
      };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD7
      };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD8 };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD9
      };

      CipherSuite TLS_SRP_SHA_DSS_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA = { 0xC0,0xTBD10
      };

   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.

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

   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.

2.8.  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 [TLS].

2.8.1.  Client Hello

   A new extension "srp" with value TBD1, has been added to the
   enumerated ExtensionType defined in [TLSEXT].  This value MUST be



Taylor, et al.          Expires December 15, 2007               [Page 9]

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2007


   used as the extension number for the SRP extension.

   The "extension_data" field of the SRP extension SHALL contain:

        opaque srp_I<1..2^8-1>;

   where srp_I is the user name, encoded per Section 2.3.

2.8.2.  Server Key Exchange

   A new value, "srp", has been added to the enumerated
   KeyExchangeAlgorithm originally defined in [TLS].

   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.

        enum { rsa, diffie_hellman, srp } KeyExchangeAlgorithm;

        struct {
           select (KeyExchangeAlgorithm) {
              case diffie_hellman:
                 ServerDHParams params;
                 Signature signed_params;
              case rsa:
                 ServerRSAParams params;
                 Signature signed_params;
              case srp:   /* new entry */
                 ServerSRPParams params;
                 Signature signed_params;
           };
        } ServerKeyExchange;

        struct {
           opaque srp_N<1..2^16-1>;
           opaque srp_g<1..2^16-1>;
           opaque srp_s<1..2^8-1>;
           opaque srp_B<1..2^16-1>;
        } ServerSRPParams;     /* SRP parameters */

2.8.3.  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 a ClientSRPPublic structure.

              case srp: ClientSRPPublic;   /* new entry */

        } ClientKeyExchange;

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

2.9.  Error Alerts

   This document introduces four new uses of alerts:

   o  "unknown_psk_identity" (115) - this alert MAY be sent by a server
      that would like to select an offered SRP ciphersuite, if the SRP
      extension is absent from the client's hello message.  This alert
      is always fatal.  See Section 2.5.1.2 for details.

   o  "unknown_psk_identity" (115) - this alert MAY be sent by a server
      that receives an unknown user name.  This alert is always fatal.

   o  "illegal_parameter" (47) - this alert MUST be sent by a client or
      server that receives a key exchange message with A % N = 0 or B %
      N = 0.  This alert is always fatal.  See Section 2.5.3 and
      Section 2.5.4 and for details.

3.  Security Considerations

3.1.  General Considerations for Implementors

   The checks described in Section 2.5.3 and Section 2.5.4 on the
   received values for A and B are CRUCIAL for security and MUST be
   performed.

   The private values a and b SHOULD be at least 256 bit random numbers,
   to give approximately 128 bits of security against certain methods of
   calculating discrete logarithms.  See [TLS] section D.1 for advice on
   choosing cryptographically secure random numbers.

3.2.  Accepting Group Parameters

   An attacker who could calculate discrete logarithms % N could
   compromise user passwords, and could also compromise the the
   confidentiality and integrity of TLS sessions.  Clients MUST ensure
   that the received parameter N is large enough to make calculating
   discrete logarithms computationally infeasible.

   An attacker may try to send a prime value N which is large enough to
   be secure, but which has a special form for which the attacker can
   more easily compute discrete logarithms (e.g., using the algorithm
   discussed in [TRAPDOOR]).  If the client executes the protocol using
   such a prime, the client's password could be compromised.  Because of
   the difficulty of checking for such primes in real-time, clients
   SHOULD only accept group parameters that come from a trusted source,
   such as those listed in Appendix A, or parameters configured locally
   by a trusted administrator.

3.3.  Protocol Characteristics

   If an attacker learns a user's SRP verifier (e.g., by gaining access
   to a server's password file), the attacker can masquerade as the real
   server to that user, and can also attempt a dictionary attack to
   recover that user's password.

   An attacker could repeatedly contact an SRP server and try to guess a
   legitimate user's password.  Servers SHOULD take steps to prevent
   this, such as limiting the rate of authentication attempts from a
   particular IP address, or against a particular user name.

   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
   connection, then renegotiate an SRP-authenticated connection with the
   handshake protected by the first connection.

Internet-Draft      Using SRP for TLS Authentication           June 2007


   If the client receives an "unknown_psk_identity" alert in response to
   a client hello, this alert may have been inserted by an attacker.
   The client should be careful about making any decisions, or forming
   any conclusions, based on receiving this alert.

   It is possible to choose a (user name, password) pair such that the
   resulting verifier will also match other, related, (user name,
   password) pairs.  Thus, anyone using verifiers should be careful not
   to assume that only a single (user name, password) pair matches the
   verifier.

3.4.  Hash Function Considerations

   This protocol uses SHA-1 to derive several values:

   o  u prevents an attacker who learns a user's verifier from being
      able to authenticate as that user (see [SRP-6]).

   o  k prevents an attacker who can select group parameters from being
      able to launch a 2-for-1 guessing attack (see [SRP-6]).

   o  x contains the user's password mixed with a salt.

   Cryptanalytic attacks against SHA-1 which only affect its collision-
   resistance do not compromise these uses.  If attacks against SHA-1
   are discovered which do compromise these uses, new ciphersuites
   should be specified to use a different hash algorithm.

   In this situation, clients could send a Client Hello message
   containing new and/or old SRP ciphersuites along with a single SRP
   extension.  The server could then select the appropriate ciphersuite
   based on the type of verifier it has stored for this user.
