Abstract

   This document defines a portion of the Management Information Base
   (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet
   community.  In particular, it describes managed objects related to
   the forwarding of Internet Protocol (IP) packets in an IP version-
   independent manner.  This document obsoletes RFC 2096.

RFC 4292                IP Forwarding Table MIB               April 2006


1.  Introduction

   This document defines a portion of the Management Information Base
   (MIB) for use in managing objects related to the forwarding of
   Internet Protocol (IP) packets in an IP version-independent manner.

   It should be noted that the MIB definition described herein does not
   support multiple instances based on the same address family type.
   However, it does support an instance of the MIB per address family.

2.  Conventions Used In This Document

   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 [RFC2119].

3.  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].

4.  Overview

   The MIB consists of one current table and two current global objects.

      1. The object inetCidrRouteNumber indicates the number of current
         routes.  This is primarily to avoid having to read the table in
         order to determine this number.

      2. The object inetCidrRouteDiscards counts the number of valid
         routes that were discarded from inetCidrRouteTable for any
         reason.  This object replaces the ipRoutingDiscards and
         ipv6DiscardedRoutes objects.

      3. The inetCidrRouteTable provides the ability to display IP
         version-independent multipath CIDR routes.

RFC 4292                IP Forwarding Table MIB               April 2006


4.1.  Relationship to Other MIBs

   This MIB definition contains several deprecated and obsolete tables
   and objects.  The following subsections describe the relationship
   between these objects and other MIB modules.

4.1.1.  RFC 1213

   The ipRouteTable object was originally defined in RFC 1213 [RFC1213].
   It was updated by ipForwardTable in RFC 1354 [RFC1354].

4.1.2.  RFC 1354

   The ipForwardTable object replaced the ipRouteTable object from RFC
   1213.  It was in turn obsoleted by the ipCidrRouteTable defined in
   RFC 2096 [RFC2096].

   In addition, RFC 1354 introduced ipForwardNumber.  This object
   reflects the number of entries found in ipForwardTable.  It was
   obsoleted by ipCidrRouteNumber, defined in RFC 2096.

4.1.3.  RFC 2096

   In RFC 2096, the ipCidrRouteTable and ipCidrRouteNumber were
   introduced.  The ipCidrRouteTable object supports multipath IP routes
   having the same network number but differing network masks.  The
   number of entries in that table is reflected in ipCidrRouteNumber.
   These objects are deprecated by the definitions contained in this MIB
   definition.

4.1.4.  RFC 2011 and 2465

   RFC 2011 [RFC2011] contains the ipRoutingDiscards object, which
   counts the number of valid routes that have been removed from the
   ipCidrRouteTable object.  The corresponding ipv6DiscardedRoutes
   object is defined in RFC 2465 [RFC2465].  These objects are
   deprecated in favor of the version-independent object
   inetCidrRouteDiscards defined in this MIB.

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.  These are the tables and objects and their
   sensitivity/vulnerability:

      1. The inetCidrRouteTable contains routing and forwarding
         information that is critical to the operation of the network
         node (especially routers).  Allowing unauthenticated write
         access to this table can compromise the validity of the
         forwarding information.

   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.  These are the tables and objects and their
   sensitivity/vulnerability:

      1. The inetCidrRouteTable contains routing and forwarding
         information that can be used to compromise a network.



Haberman                    Standards Track                    [Page 30]

RFC 4292                IP Forwarding Table MIB               April 2006


         Specifically, this table can be used to construct a map of the
         network in preparation for a denial-of-service attack on the
         network infrastructure.

      2. The inetCidrRouteProto object identifies the routing protocols
         in use within a network.  This information can be used to
         determine how a denial-of-service attack should be launched.

   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 the 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.

7.  Changes from RFC 2096

   This document obsoletes RFC 2096 in the following ways:

      1. Replaces ipCidrRouteTable with inetCidrRouteTable.  This
         applies to corresponding objects and conformance statements.

      2. Utilizes the InetAddress TC to support IP version-independent
         implementations of the forwarding MIB.  This gives common
         forwarding MIB support for IPv4 and IPv6.

      3. Creates a read-only conformance statement to support
         implementations that only wish to retrieve data.

      4. Creates the inetCidrRouteDiscards object to replace the
         deprecated ipRoutingDiscards and ipv6DiscardedRoutes objects.

   The inetCidrRouteTable retains the logical structure of the
   ipCidrRouteTable in order to allow the easy upgrade of existing IPv4
   implementations to the version-independent MIB.
