Abstract

   This document describes the set of Microsoft vendor-specific RADIUS
   attributes.  These attributes are designed to support Microsoft
   proprietary dial-up protocols and/or provide support for features
   which is not provided by the standard RADIUS attribute set [3].  It
   is expected that this memo will be updated whenever Microsoft defines
   a new vendor-specific attribute, since its primary purpose is to
   provide an open, easily accessible reference for third-parties
   wishing to interoperate with Microsoft products.

1.  Specification of Requirements

   In this document, the key words "MAY", "MUST, "MUST NOT", "optional",
   "recommended", "SHOULD", and "SHOULD NOT" are to be interpreted as
   described in [2].

2.  Attributes

   The following sections describe sub-attributes which may be
   transmitted in one or more RADIUS attributes of type Vendor-Specific
   [3].  More than one sub-attribute MAY be transmitted in a single
   Vendor-Specific Attribute; if this is done, the sub-attributes SHOULD
   be packed as a sequence of Vendor-Type/Vendor-Length/Value triples
   following the inital Type, Length and Vendor-ID fields.  The Length
   field of the Vendor-Specific Attribute MUST be set equal to the sum
   of the Vendor-Length fields of the sub-attributes contained in the
   Vendor-Specific Attribute, plus six.  The Vendor-ID field of the
   Vendor-Specific Attribute(s) MUST be set to decimal 311 (Microsoft).

2.1.  Attributes for Support of MS-CHAP Version 1

2.1.1.  Introduction

   Microsoft created Microsoft Challenge-Handshake Authentication
   Protocol (MS-CHAP) [4] to authenticate remote Windows workstations,
   providing the functionality to which LAN-based users are accustomed.
   Where possible, MS-CHAP is consistent with standard CHAP [5], and the
   differences are easily modularized.  Briefly, the differences between
   MS-CHAP and standard CHAP are:

      * MS-CHAP is enabled by negotiating CHAP Algorithm 0x80 in LCP
        option 3, Authentication Protocol.

      * The MS-CHAP Response packet is in a format designed for
        compatibility with Microsoft Windows NT 3.5, 3.51 and 4.0,
        Microsoft Windows95, and Microsoft LAN Manager 2.x networking
        products.  The MS-CHAP format does not require the authenticator
        to store a clear-text or reversibly encrypted password.

      * MS-CHAP provides an authenticator-controlled authentication
        retry mechanism.

      * MS-CHAP provides an authenticator-controlled password changing
        mechanism.

      * MS-CHAP defines an extended  set of reason-for-failure codes,
        returned in the Failure packet Message field.

   The attributes defined in this section reflect these differences.

2.1.2.  MS-CHAP-Challenge

   Description

      This Attribute contains the challenge sent by a NAS to a Microsoft
      Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (MS-CHAP) user.  It
      MAY be used in both Access-Request and Access-Challenge packets.

   A summary of the MS-CHAP-Challenge Attribute format is shown below.
   The fields are transmitted from left to right.

      The Flags field is one octet in length.  If the Flags field is one
      (0x01), the NT-Response field is to be used in preference to the
      LM-Response field for authentication.  The LM-Response field MAY
      still be used (if non-empty), but the NT-Response SHOULD be tried
      first.  If it is zero, the NT-Response field MUST be ignored and
      the LM-Response field used.

      Ident field in all instances of the MS-CHAP-LM-Enc-PW, MS-CHAP-NT-
      Enc-PW and MS-CHAP-PW-2 attributes contained in a single Access-
      Request packet.

   Old-NT-Hash
      The Old-NT-Hash field is 16 octets in length.  It contains the old
      Windows NT password hash encrypted with the new Windows NT
      password hash.

   Old-LM-Hash
      The Old-LM-Hash field is 16 octets in length.  It contains the old
      Lan Manager password hash encrypted with the new Windows NT
      password hash.

   LM-Response
      The LM-Response field is 24 octets in length and holds an encoded
      function of the password and the received challenge.  If this
      field is empty, it SHOULD be zero-filled.

   NT-Response
      The NT-Response field is 24 octets in length and holds an encoded
      function of the password and the received challenge.  If this
      field is empty, it SHOULD be zero-filled.

   Flags
      The Flags field is two octets in length.  If the least significant
      bit (bit 0) of this field is one, the NT-Response field is to be
      used in preference to the LM-Response field for authentication.
      The LM-Response field MAY still be used (if present), but the NT-
      Response SHOULD be tried first.  If least significant bit of the
      field is zero, the NT-Response field MUST be ignored and the LM-
      Response field used instead.  If bit 1 of the Flags field is one,
      the Old-LM-Hash field is valid and SHOULD be used.  If this bit is
      set, at least one instance of the MS-CHAP-LM-Enc-PW attribute MUST
      be included in the packet.

2.1.8.  MS-CHAP-LM-Enc-PW

   Description

      This Attribute contains the new Windows NT password encrypted with
      the old LAN Manager password hash.  The encrypted Windows NT
      password is 516 octets in length; since this is longer than the
      maximum lengtth of a RADIUS attribute, the password must be split
      into several attibutes for transmission.  A 2 octet sequence
      number is included in the attribute to help preserve ordering of
      the password fragments.

      This Attribute is only used in Access-Request packets, in
      conjunction with the MS-CHAP-CPW-2 attribute.  It should only be
      included if an MS-CHAP-Error attribute was included in the
      immediately preceding Access-Reject packet, the String field of
      the MS-CHAP-Error attribute indicated that the user password had
      expired, and the MS-CHAP version is 2 or greater.

2.3.  Attributes for Support of MS-CHAP Version 2

2.3.1.  Introduction

   This section describes RADIUS attributes supporting version two of
   Microsoft's PPP CHAP dialect (MS-CHAP-V2) [14].  MS-CHAP-V2 is
   similar to, but incompatible with, MS-CHAP version one (MS-CHAP-V1)
   [4].  Certain protocol fields have been deleted or reused but with
   different semantics.  Where possible, MS-CHAP-V2 is consistent with
   both MS-CHAP-V1 and standard CHAP [1].  Briefly, the differences
   between MS-CHAP-V2 and MS-CHAP-V1 are:

      * MS-CHAP-V2 is enabled by negotiating CHAP Algorithm 0x81 in LCP
        option 3, Authentication Protocol.

      * MS-CHAP-V2 provides mutual authentication between peers by
        piggybacking a peer challenge on the Response packet and an
        authenticator response on the Success packet.

      * The calculation of the "Windows NT compatible challenge
        response" sub-field in the Response packet has been changed to
        include the peer challenge and the user name.

      * In MS-CHAP-V1, the "LAN Manager compatible challenge response"
        sub-field was always sent in the Response packet.  This field
        has been replaced in MS-CHAP-V2 by the Peer-Challenge field.

      * The format of the Message field in the Failure packet has been
        changed.

      * The Change Password (version 1) and Change Password (version 2)
        packets are no longer supported. They have been replaced with a
        single Change-Password packet.

2.4.  Attributes for MPPE Support

   This section describes a set of Attributes designed to support the
   use of Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption (MPPE) [6] in dial-up
   networks.  MPPE is a means of representing Point to Point Protocol
   (PPP) [7] packets in a encrypted form.  MPPE uses the RSA RC4 [8]
   algorithm for encryption.  The length of the session key to be used
   for initializing encryption tables can be negotiated; MPPE currently
   supports 40 bit and 128 bit session keys.  MPPE is negotiated within
   option 18 in the PPP Compression Control Protocol (CCP)[9], [10].

2.4.1.  MS-CHAP-MPPE-Keys

   Description

      The MS-CHAP-MPPE-Keys Attribute contains two session keys for use
      by the Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption Protocol (MPPE).  This
      Attribute is only included in Access-Accept packets.

      The Keys field MUST be encrypted by the RADIUS server using the
      same method defined for the User-Password Attribute [3].  Padding
      is required because the method referenced above requires the field
      to be encrypted to be a multiple of sixteen octets in length.

   Implementation Note
         This attribute should only be returned in response to an
         Access-Request packet containing MS-CHAP attributes.

2.4.2.  MS-MPPE-Send-Key

   Description

      The MS-MPPE-Send-Key Attribute contains a session key for use by
      the Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption Protocol (MPPE).  As the
      name implies, this key is intended for encrypting packets sent
      from the NAS to the remote host.  This Attribute is only included
      in Access-Accept packets.

   A summary of the MS-MPPE-Send-Key Attribute format is given below.
   The fields are transmitted left to right.

   Salt
      The Salt field is two octets in length and is used to ensure the
      uniqueness of the keys used to encrypt each of the encrypted
      attributes occurring in a given Access-Accept packet.  The most
      significant bit (leftmost) of the Salt field MUST be set (1).  The
      contents of each Salt field in a given Access-Accept packet MUST
      be unique.

   String
      The plaintext String field consists of three logical sub-fields:
      the Key-Length and Key sub-fields (both of which are required),
      and the optional Padding sub-field.  The Key-Length sub-field is
      one octet in length and contains the length of the unencrypted Key
      sub-field.  The Key sub-field contains the actual encryption key.
      If the combined length (in octets) of the unencrypted Key-Length
      and Key sub-fields is not an even multiple of 16, then the Padding
      sub-field MUST be present.  If it is present, the length of the
      Padding sub-field is variable, between 1 and 15 octets.  The
      String field MUST be encrypted as follows, prior to transmission:

         Construct a plaintext version of the String field by concate-
         nating the Key-Length and Key sub-fields.  If necessary, pad
         the resulting string until its length (in octets) is an even
         multiple of 16.  It is recommended that zero octets (0x00) be
         used for padding.  Call this plaintext P.

         Call the shared secret S, the pseudo-random 128-bit Request
         Authenticator (from the corresponding Access-Request packet) R,
         and the contents of the Salt field A.  Break P into 16 octet
         chunks p(1), p(2)...p(i), where i = len(P)/16.  Call the
         ciphertext blocks c(1), c(2)...c(i) and the final ciphertext C.
         Intermediate values b(1), b(2)...c(i) are required.  Encryption
         is performed in the following manner ('+' indicates
         concatenation):

      b(1) = MD5(S + R + A)    c(1) = p(1) xor b(1)   C = c(1)
      b(2) = MD5(S + c(1))     c(2) = p(2) xor b(2)   C = C + c(2)

      b(i) = MD5(S + c(i-1))   c(i) = p(i) xor b(i)   C = C + c(i)

      The   resulting   encrypted   String   field    will    contain
      c(1)+c(2)+...+c(i).

   On receipt, the process is reversed to yield the plaintext String.

   Implementation Notes
      It is possible that the length of the key returned may be larger
      than needed for the encryption scheme in use.  In this case, the
      RADIUS client is responsible for performing any necessary
      truncation.

      This attribute MAY be used to pass a key from an external (e.g.,
      EAP [15]) server to the RADIUS server.  In this case, it may be
      impossible for the external server to correctly encrypt the key,
      since the RADIUS shared secret might be unavailable.  The external
      server SHOULD, however, return the attribute as defined above; the
      Salt field SHOULD be zero-filled and padding of the String field
      SHOULD be done.  When the RADIUS server receives the attribute
      from the external server, it MUST correctly set the Salt field and
      encrypt the String field before transmitting it to the RADIUS
      client.  If the channel used to communicate the MS-MPPE-Send-Key
      attribute is not secure from eavesdropping, the attribute MUST be
      cryptographically protected.

2.4.3.  MS-MPPE-Recv-Key

   Description

      The MS-MPPE-Recv-Key Attribute contains a session key for use by
      the Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption Protocol (MPPE).  As the
      name implies, this key is intended for encrypting packets received
      by the NAS from the remote host.  This Attribute is only included
      in Access-Accept packets.

2.5.  Attributes for BAP Support

   This section describes a set of vendor-specific RADIUS attributes
   designed to support the dynamic control of bandwidth allocation in
   multilink PPP [11].  Attributes are defined that specify whether use
   of the PPP Bandwidth Allocation Protocol (BAP) [12] is allowed or
   required on incoming calls, the level of line capacity (expressed as
   a percentage) below which utilization must fall before a link is
   eligible to be dropped, and the length of time (in seconds) that a
   link must be under-utilized before it is dropped.

2.5.1.  MS-BAP-Usage

   Description

      This Attribute describes whether the use of BAP is allowed,
      disallowed or required on new multilink calls.  It MAY be used in
      Access-Accept packets.

2.5.2.  MS-Link-Utilization-Threshold

   Description

      This Attribute represents the percentage of available bandwidth
      utilization below which the link must fall before the link is
      eligible for termination.  Permissible values for the MS-Link-
      Utilization-Threshold Attribute are in the range 1-100, inclusive.

The following table defines the meaning of the above table entries.

0     This attribute MUST NOT be present in packet.
0+    Zero or more instances of this attribute MAY be present in packet.
0-1   Zero or one instance of this attribute MAY be present in packet.

4.  Security Considerations

   MS-CHAP, like PPP CHAP, is susceptible to dictionary attacks.  User
   passwords should be chosen with care, and be of sufficient length to
   deter easy guessing.

   Although the scheme used to protect the Keys field of the MS-CHAP-
   MPPE-Keys, MS-MPPE-Send-Key and MS-MPPE-Recv-Key Attributes is
   believed to be relatively secure on the wire, RADIUS proxies will
   decrypt and re-encrypt the field for forwarding.  Therefore, these
   attributes SHOULD NOT be used on networks where untrusted RADIUS
   proxies reside.
