 Improved Extensible Authentication Protocol Method for 3rd Generation
              Authentication and Key Agreement (EAP-AKA')
                     draft-arkko-eap-rfc5448bis-01

Abstract

   This specification defines a new EAP method, EAP-AKA', a small
   revision of the EAP-AKA method.  The change is a new key derivation
   function that binds the keys derived within the method to the name of
   the access network.  The new key derivation mechanism has been
   defined in the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).  This
   specification allows its use in EAP in an interoperable manner.  In
   addition, EAP-AKA' employs SHA-256 instead of SHA-1.

   This specification also updates RFC 4187 EAP-AKA to prevent bidding
   down attacks from EAP-AKA'.

   This version of the EAP-AKA' specification updates a reference to
   constructing one field in the protocol, so that EAP-AKA' becomes
   compatible with 5G deployments as well.

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


1.  Introduction

   This specification defines a new Extensible Authentication Protocol
   (EAP)[RFC3748] method, EAP-AKA', a small revision of the EAP-AKA
   method originally defined in [RFC4187].  What is new in EAP-AKA' is
   that it has a new key derivation function, specified in
   [TS-3GPP.33.402].  This function binds the keys derived within the
   method to the name of the access network.  This limits the effects of
   compromised access network nodes and keys.  This specification
   defines the EAP encapsulation for AKA when the new key derivation
   mechanism is in use.

   3GPP has defined a number of applications for the revised AKA
   mechanism, some based on native encapsulation of AKA over 3GPP radio
   access networks and others based on the use of EAP.

   For making the new key derivation mechanisms usable in EAP-AKA,
   additional protocol mechanisms are necessary.  Given that RFC 4187
   calls for the use of CK (the encryption key) and IK (the integrity
   key) from AKA, existing implementations continue to use these.  Any
   change of the key derivation must be unambiguous to both sides in the
   protocol.  That is, it must not be possible to accidentally connect
   old equipment to new equipment and get the key derivation wrong or
   attempt to use wrong keys without getting a proper error message.
   The change must also be secure against bidding down attacks that
   attempt to force the participants to use the least secure mechanism.

   This specification therefore introduces a variant of the EAP-AKA
   method, called EAP-AKA'.  This method can employ the derived keys CK'
   and IK' from the 3GPP specification and updates the used hash
   function to SHA-256 [FIPS.180-2.2002].  But it is otherwise
   equivalent to RFC 4187.  Given that a different EAP method type value
   is used for EAP-AKA and EAP-AKA', a mutually supported method may be
   negotiated using the standard mechanisms in EAP [RFC3748].

      Note: Appendix C explains why it is important to be explicit about
      the change of semantics for the keys, and why other approaches
      would lead to severe interoperability problems.

   This version of the EAP-AKA' specification is an update to RFC 5448.
   The update consists of three things:

   o  Update the reference on how the Network Name field is constructed
      in the protocol.  The update helps ensure that EAP-AKA' becomes
      compatible with 5G deployments as well.  RFC 5448 referred to the
      2008 version of that reference ([TS-3GPP.24.302]) and this update
      points to the 5G version of that reference.

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   o  Specify how EAP and EAP-AKA' use identifiers in 5G, as additional
      identifiers are introduced, and for interoperability, it is
      important that implementations use the right ones.

   o  Specify session identifiers and other exported parameters, as
      those were not specified in [RFC5448] despite requirements set
      forward in [RFC5247] to do so.  Also, while [RFC5247] specified
      session identifiers for EAP-AKA, it only did so for the full
      authentication case, not for the case of fast re-authentication.

   Arguably, the updates are small.  For the first update, the 3GPP
   specification number for the updated calculation has not changed,
   only the version.  But this reference is crucial in correct
   calculation of the keys resulting from running the EAP-AKA' method,
   so an update of the RFC with the newest version pointer may be
   warranted.  As always, feedback is welcome on that point as well as
   on any other topic within this document.

      Note: It is an open issue whether this update should refer to only
      the 5G version of the definition, or be explicit that any further
      update of that specification is something that EAP-AKA'
      implementations should take into account.  Note that one should
      keep in mind that specification being automatically updated is
      different from implementations taking notice of new things.

   The second update is needed to ensure that implementations use the
   correct identifiers in the context of 5G, as it introduces additional
   privacy-protected identifiers, and it is no longer clear which
   identifiers are used in EAP-AKA'.

   The third update is necessary in order to fix a problem in previous
   RFCs.

   It is an explicit non-goal of this draft to include any other
   technical modifications, addition of new features or other changes.
   The EAP-AKA' base protocol is stable and needs to stay that way.  If
   there are any extensions or variants, those need to be proposed as
   standalone extensions or even as different authentication methods.

   The rest of this specification is structured as follows.  Section 3
   defines the EAP-AKA' method.  Section 4 adds support to EAP-AKA to
   prevent bidding down attacks from EAP-AKA'.  Section 7 explains the
   security differences between EAP-AKA and EAP-AKA'.  Section 8
   describes the IANA considerations and Appendix A and Appendix B
   explains what updates to RFC 5448 AKA' and RFC 4187 EAP-AKA have been
   made in this specification.  Appendix C explains some of the design
   rationale for creating EAP-AKA' Finally, Appendix D provides test
   vectors.

      Editor's Note: The publication of this RFC depends on its
      normative references [TS-3GPP.24.302] and [TS-3GPP.33.501] from
      3GPP reaching their final Release 15 status at 3GPP.  This is
      expected to happen shortly.  The RFC Editor should check with the
      3GPP liaisons that this has happened.  RFC Editor: Please delete
      this note upon publication of this specification as an RFC.

2.  Requirements Language

   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].

3.  EAP-AKA'

   EAP-AKA' is a new EAP method that follows the EAP-AKA specification
   [RFC4187] in all respects except the following:

   o  It uses the Type code 50, not 23 (which is used by EAP-AKA).

   o  It carries the AT_KDF_INPUT attribute, as defined in Section 3.1,
      to ensure that both the peer and server know the name of the
      access network.

   o  It supports key derivation function negotiation via the AT_KDF
      attribute (Section 3.2) to allow for future extensions.

   o  It calculates keys as defined in Section 3.3, not as defined in
      EAP-AKA.

   o  It employs SHA-256 [FIPS.180-2.2002], not SHA-1 [FIPS.180-1.1995]
      (Section 3.4).

   Figure 1 shows an example of the authentication process.  Each
   message AKA'-Challenge and so on represents the corresponding message
   from EAP-AKA, but with EAP-AKA' Type code.  The definition of these
   messages, along with the definition of attributes AT_RAND, AT_AUTN,
   AT_MAC, and AT_RES can be found in [RFC4187].

              Figure 1: EAP-AKA' Authentication Process

   EAP-AKA' can operate on the same credentials as EAP-AKA and employ
   the same identities.  However, EAP-AKA' employs different leading
   characters than EAP-AKA for the conventions given in Section 4.1.1 of
   [RFC4187] for International Mobile Subscriber Identifier (IMSI) based
   usernames.  EAP-AKA' MUST use the leading character "6" (ASCII 36
   hexadecimal) instead of "0" for IMSI-based permanent usernames.  All
   other usage and processing of the leading characters, usernames, and
   identities is as defined by EAP-AKA [RFC4187].  For instance, the

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   pseudonym and fast re-authentication usernames need to be constructed
   so that the server can recognize them.  As an example, a pseudonym
   could begin with a leading "7" character (ASCII 37 hexadecimal) and a
   fast re-authentication username could begin with "8" (ASCII 38
   hexadecimal).  Note that a server that implements only EAP-AKA may
   not recognize these leading characters.  According to Section 4.1.4
   of [RFC4187], such a server will re-request the identity via the EAP-
   Request/AKA-Identity message, making obvious to the peer that EAP-AKA
   and associated identity are expected.

   The format of the AT_KDF_INPUT attribute is shown below.

   The fields are as follows:

   AT_KDF_INPUT

      This is set to 23.

   Length

      The length of the attribute, calculated as defined in [RFC4187],
      Section 8.1.

   Actual Network Name Length

      This is a 2 byte actual length field, needed due to the
      requirement that the previous field is expressed in multiples of 4
      bytes per the usual EAP-AKA rules.  The Actual Network Name Length
      field provides the length of the network name in bytes.

   Network Name

      This field contains the network name of the access network for
      which the authentication is being performed.  The name does not

      include any terminating null characters.  Because the length of
      the entire attribute must be a multiple of 4 bytes, the sender
      pads the name with 1, 2, or 3 bytes of all zero bits when
      necessary.

   Only the server sends the AT_KDF_INPUT attribute.  Per
   [TS-3GPP.33.402], the server always verifies the authorization of a
   given access network to use a particular name before sending it to
   the peer over EAP-AKA'.  The value of the AT_KDF_INPUT attribute from
   the server MUST be non-empty.  If it is empty, the peer behaves as if
   AUTN had been incorrect and authentication fails.  See Section 3 and
   Figure 3 of [RFC4187] for an overview of how authentication failures
   are handled.

   In addition, the peer MAY check the received value against its own
   understanding of the network name.  Upon detecting a discrepancy, the
   peer either warns the user and continues, or fails the authentication
   process.  More specifically, the peer SHOULD have a configurable
   policy that it can follow under these circumstances.  If the policy
   indicates that it can continue, the peer SHOULD log a warning message
   or display it to the user.  If the peer chooses to proceed, it MUST
   use the network name as received in the AT_KDF_INPUT attribute.  If
   the policy indicates that the authentication should fail, the peer
   behaves as if AUTN had been incorrect and authentication fails.

   The Network Name field contains a UTF-8 string.  This string MUST be
   constructed as specified in [TS-3GPP.24.302] for "Access Network
   Identity".  The string is structured as fields separated by colons
   (:).  The algorithms and mechanisms to construct the identity string
   depend on the used access technology.

   On the network side, the network name construction is a configuration
   issue in an access network and an authorization check in the
   authentication server.  On the peer, the network name is constructed
   based on the local observations.  For instance, the peer knows which
   access technology it is using on the link, it can see information in
   a link-layer beacon, and so on.  The construction rules specify how
   this information maps to an access network name.  Typically, the
   network name consists of the name of the access technology, or the
   name of the access technology followed by some operator identifier
   that was advertised in a link-layer beacon.  In all cases,
   [TS-3GPP.24.302] is the normative specification for the construction
   in both the network and peer side.  If the peer policy allows running
   EAP-AKA' over an access technology for which that specification does
   not provide network name construction rules, the peer SHOULD rely
   only on the information from the AT_KDF_INPUT attribute and not
   perform a comparison.

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   If a comparison of the locally determined network name and the one
   received over EAP-AKA' is performed on the peer, it MUST be done as
   follows.  First, each name is broken down to the fields separated by
   colons.  If one of the names has more colons and fields than the
   other one, the additional fields are ignored.  The remaining
   sequences of fields are compared, and they match only if they are
   equal character by character.  This algorithm allows a prefix match
   where the peer would be able to match "", "FOO", and "FOO:BAR"
   against the value "FOO:BAR" received from the server.  This
   capability is important in order to allow possible updates to the
   specifications that dictate how the network names are constructed.
   For instance, if a peer knows that it is running on access technology
   "FOO", it can use the string "FOO" even if the server uses an
   additional, more accurate description, e.g., "FOO:BAR", that contains
   more information.

   The allocation procedures in [TS-3GPP.24.302] ensure that conflicts
   potentially arising from using the same name in different types of
   networks are avoided.  The specification also has detailed rules
   about how a client can determine these based on information available
   to the client, such as the type of protocol used to attach to the
   network, beacons sent out by the network, and so on.  Information
   that the client cannot directly observe (such as the type or version
   of the home network) is not used by this algorithm.

   The AT_KDF_INPUT attribute MUST be sent and processed as explained
   above when AT_KDF attribute has the value 1.  Future definitions of
   new AT_KDF values MUST define how this attribute is sent and
   processed.

3.2.  AT_KDF

   AT_KDF is an attribute that the server uses to reference a specific
   key derivation function.  It offers a negotiation capability that can
   be useful for future evolution of the key derivation functions.

   The format of the AT_KDF attribute is shown below.

       0                   1                   2                   3

      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+


   The fields are as follows:

      This is set to 24.

   Length

      The length of the attribute, MUST be set to 1.

   Key Derivation Function

      An enumerated value representing the key derivation function that
      the server (or peer) wishes to use.  Value 1 represents the
      default key derivation function for EAP-AKA', i.e., employing CK'
      and IK' as defined in Section 3.3.

   Servers MUST send one or more AT_KDF attributes in the EAP-Request/
   AKA'-Challenge message.  These attributes represent the desired
   functions ordered by preference, the most preferred function being
   the first attribute.

   Upon receiving a set of these attributes, if the peer supports and is
   willing to use the key derivation function indicated by the first
   attribute, the function is taken into use without any further
   negotiation.  However, if the peer does not support this function or
   is unwilling to use it, it does not process the received EAP-Request/
   AKA'-Challenge in any way except by responding with the EAP-Response/
   AKA'-Challenge message that contains only one attribute, AT_KDF with
   the value set to the selected alternative.  If there is no suitable
   alternative, the peer behaves as if AUTN had been incorrect and
   authentication fails (see Figure 3 of [RFC4187]).  The peer fails the
   authentication also if there are any duplicate values within the list
   of AT_KDF attributes (except where the duplication is due to a
   request to change the key derivation function; see below for further
   information).

   Upon receiving an EAP-Response/AKA'-Challenge with AT_KDF from the
   peer, the server checks that the suggested AT_KDF value was one of
   the alternatives in its offer.  The first AT_KDF value in the message
   from the server is not a valid alternative.  If the peer has replied
   with the first AT_KDF value, the server behaves as if AT_MAC of the
   response had been incorrect and fails the authentication.  For an
   overview of the failed authentication process in the server side, see
   Section 3 and Figure 2 of [RFC4187].  Otherwise, the server re-sends
   the EAP-Response/AKA'-Challenge message, but adds the selected
   alternative to the beginning of the list of AT_KDF attributes and
   retains the entire list following it.  Note that this means that the
   selected alternative appears twice in the set of AT_KDF values.
   Responding to the peer's request to change the key derivation
   function is the only legal situation where such duplication may
   occur.

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   When the peer receives the new EAP-Request/AKA'-Challenge message, it
   MUST check that the requested change, and only the requested change,
   occurred in the list of AT_KDF attributes.  If so, it continues with
   processing the received EAP-Request/AKA'-Challenge as specified in
   [RFC4187] and Section 3.1 of this document.  If not, it behaves as if
   AT_MAC had been incorrect and fails the authentication.  If the peer
   receives multiple EAP-Request/AKA'-Challenge messages with differing
   AT_KDF attributes without having requested negotiation, the peer MUST
   behave as if AT_MAC had been incorrect and fail the authentication.

   Note that the peer may also request sequence number resynchronization
   [RFC4187].  This happens after AT_KDF negotiation has already
   completed.  An AKA'-Synchronization-Failure message is sent as a
   response to the newly received EAP-Request/AKA'-Challenge (the last
   message of the AT_KDF negotiation).  The AKA'-Synchronization-Failure
   message MUST contain the AUTS parameter as specified in [RFC4187] and
   a copy the AT_KDF attributes as they appeared in the last message of
   the AT_KDF negotiation.  If the AT_KDF attributes are found to differ
   from their earlier values, the peer and server MUST behave as if
   AT_MAC had been incorrect and fail the authentication.

3.3.  Key Generation

   Both the peer and server MUST derive the keys as follows.

   AT_KDF set to 1

      In this case, MK is derived and used as follows:


    MK = PRF'(IK'|CK',"EAP-AKA'"|Identity)
    K_encr = MK[0..127]
    K_aut  = MK[128..383]
    K_re   = MK[384..639]
    MSK    = MK[640..1151]
    EMSK   = MK[1152..1663]

      Here [n..m] denotes the substring from bit n to m.  PRF' is a new
      pseudo-random function specified in Section 3.4.  The first 1664
      bits from its output are used for K_encr (encryption key, 128
      bits), K_aut (authentication key, 256 bits), K_re (re-
      authentication key, 256 bits), MSK (Master Session Key, 512 bits),
      and EMSK (Extended Master Session Key, 512 bits).  These keys are
      used by the subsequent EAP-AKA' process.  K_encr is used by the
      AT_ENCR_DATA attribute, and K_aut by the AT_MAC attribute.  K_re
      is used later in this section.  MSK and EMSK are outputs from a
      successful EAP method run [RFC3748].

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


      IK' and CK' are derived as specified in [TS-3GPP.33.402].  The
      functions that derive IK' and CK' take the following parameters:
      CK and IK produced by the AKA algorithm, and value of the Network
      Name field comes from the AT_KDF_INPUT attribute (without length
      or padding) .

      The value "EAP-AKA'" is an eight-characters-long ASCII string.  It
      is used as is, without any trailing NUL characters.

      Identity is the peer identity as specified in Section 7 of
      [RFC4187].

      When the server creates an AKA challenge and corresponding AUTN,
      CK, CK', IK, and IK' values, it MUST set the Authentication
      Management Field (AMF) separation bit to 1 in the AKA algorithm
      [TS-3GPP.33.102].  Similarly, the peer MUST check that the AMF
      separation bit is set to 1.  If the bit is not set to 1, the peer
      behaves as if the AUTN had been incorrect and fails the
      authentication.

      On fast re-authentication, the following keys are calculated:


    MK = PRF'(K_re,"EAP-AKA' re-auth"|Identity|counter|NONCE_S)
    MSK  = MK[0..511]
    EMSK = MK[512..1023]

      MSK and EMSK are the resulting 512-bit keys, taking the first 1024
      bits from the result of PRF'.  Note that K_encr and K_aut are not
      re-derived on fast re-authentication.  K_re is the re-
      authentication key from the preceding full authentication and
      stays unchanged over any fast re-authentication(s) that may happen
      based on it.  The value "EAP-AKA' re-auth" is a sixteen-
      characters-long ASCII string, again represented without any
      trailing NUL characters.  Identity is the fast re-authentication
      identity, counter is the value from the AT_COUNTER attribute,
      NONCE_S is the nonce value from the AT_NONCE_S attribute, all as
      specified in Section 7 of [RFC4187].  To prevent the use of
      compromised keys in other places, it is forbidden to change the
      network name when going from the full to the fast re-
      authentication process.  The peer SHOULD NOT attempt fast re-
      authentication when it knows that the network name in the current
      access network is different from the one in the initial, full
      authentication.  Upon seeing a re-authentication request with a
      changed network name, the server SHOULD behave as if the re-
      authentication identifier had been unrecognized, and fall back to
      full authentication.  The server observes the change in the name
      by comparing where the fast re-authentication and full

      authentication EAP transactions were received at the
      Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) protocol
      level.

   AT_KDF has any other value

      Future variations of key derivation functions may be defined, and
      they will be represented by new values of AT_KDF.  If the peer
      does not recognize the value, it cannot calculate the keys and
      behaves as explained in Section 3.2.

   AT_KDF is missing

      The peer behaves as if the AUTN had been incorrect and MUST fail
      the authentication.

   If the peer supports a given key derivation function but is unwilling
   to perform it for policy reasons, it refuses to calculate the keys
   and behaves as explained in Section 3.2.

3.4.  Hash Functions

   EAP-AKA' uses SHA-256 [FIPS.180-2.2002], not SHA-1 [FIPS.180-1.1995]
   as in EAP-AKA.  This requires a change to the pseudo-random function
   (PRF) as well as the AT_MAC and AT_CHECKCODE attributes.

3.4.1.  PRF'

   The PRF' construction is the same one IKEv2 uses (see Section 2.13 of
   [RFC4306]).  The function takes two arguments.  K is a 256-bit value
   and S is an octet string of arbitrary length.  PRF' is defined as
   follows:

   PRF'(K,S) = T1 | T2 | T3 | T4 | ...

      where:
      T1 = HMAC-SHA-256 (K, S | 0x01)
      T2 = HMAC-SHA-256 (K, T1 | S | 0x02)
      T3 = HMAC-SHA-256 (K, T2 | S | 0x03)
      T4 = HMAC-SHA-256 (K, T3 | S | 0x04)
      ...

   PRF' produces as many bits of output as is needed.  HMAC-SHA-256 is
   the application of HMAC [RFC2104] to SHA-256.

3.4.2.  AT_MAC

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   When used within EAP-AKA', the AT_MAC attribute is changed as
   follows.  The MAC algorithm is HMAC-SHA-256-128, a keyed hash value.
   The HMAC-SHA-256-128 value is obtained from the 32-byte HMAC-SHA-256
   value by truncating the output to the first 16 bytes.  Hence, the
   length of the MAC is 16 bytes.

   Otherwise, the use of AT_MAC in EAP-AKA' follows Section 10.15 of
   [RFC4187].

3.4.3.  AT_CHECKCODE

   When used within EAP-AKA', the AT_CHECKCODE attribute is changed as
   follows.  First, a 32-byte value is needed to accommodate a 256-bit
   hash output:

    0                   1                   2                   3

   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   | AT_CHECKCODE  | Length        |           Reserved            |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |                                                               |
   |                     Checkcode (0 or 32 bytes)                 |
   |                                                               |
   |                                                               |
   |                                                               |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Second, the checkcode is a hash value, calculated with SHA-256
   [FIPS.180-2.2002], over the data specified in Section 10.13 of
   [RFC4187].

4.  Bidding Down Prevention for EAP-AKA

   As discussed in [RFC3748], negotiation of methods within EAP is
   insecure.  That is, a man-in-the-middle attacker may force the
   endpoints to use a method that is not the strongest that they both
   support.  This is a problem, as we expect EAP-AKA and EAP-AKA' to be
   negotiated via EAP.

   In order to prevent such attacks, this RFC specifies a new mechanism
   for EAP-AKA that allows the endpoints to securely discover the
   capabilities of each other.  This mechanism comes in the form of the
   AT_BIDDING attribute.  This allows both endpoints to communicate
   their desire and support for EAP-AKA' when exchanging EAP-AKA
   messages.  This attribute is not included in EAP-AKA' messages as
   defined in this RFC.  It is only included in EAP-AKA messages.  This
   is based on the assumption that EAP-AKA' is always preferable (see
   Section 7).  If during the EAP-AKA authentication process it is

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   discovered that both endpoints would have been able to use EAP-AKA',
   the authentication process SHOULD be aborted, as a bidding down
   attack may have happened.

   The format of the AT_BIDDING attribute is shown below.

       0                   1                   2                   3
       0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
      | AT_BIDDING    | Length        |D|          Reserved           |
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+


   The fields are as follows:

   AT_BIDDING

      This is set to 136.

   Length

      The length of the attribute, MUST be set to 1.

   D

      This bit is set to 1 if the sender supports EAP-AKA', is willing
      to use it, and prefers it over EAP-AKA.  Otherwise, it should be
      set to zero.

   Reserved

      This field MUST be set to zero when sent and ignored on receipt.

   The server sends this attribute in the EAP-Request/AKA-Challenge
   message.  If the peer supports EAP-AKA', it compares the received
   value to its own capabilities.  If it turns out that both the server
   and peer would have been able to use EAP-AKA' and preferred it over
   EAP-AKA, the peer behaves as if AUTN had been incorrect and fails the
   authentication (see Figure 3 of [RFC4187]).  A peer not supporting
   EAP-AKA' will simply ignore this attribute.  In all cases, the
   attribute is protected by the integrity mechanisms of EAP-AKA, so it
   cannot be removed by a man-in-the-middle attacker.

   Note that we assume (Section 7) that EAP-AKA' is always stronger than
   EAP-AKA.  As a result, there is no need to prevent bidding "down"
   attacks in the other direction, i.e., attackers forcing the endpoints
   to use EAP-AKA'.

5.  Identifier Usage in 5G

   In EAP-AKA', the peer identity may be communicated to the server in
   one of three ways:

   o  As a part of link layer establishment procedures, externally to
      EAP.

   o  With the EAP-Response/Identity message in the beginning of the EAP
      exchange, but before the selection of EAP-AKA'.

   o  Transmitted from the peer to the server using EAP-AKA messages
      instead of EAP-Response/Identity.  In this case, the server
      includes an identity requesting attribute (AT_ANY_ID_REQ,
      AT_FULLAUTH_ID_REQ or AT_PERMANENT_ID_REQ) in the EAP-Request/AKA-
      Identity message; and the peer includes the AT_IDENTITY attribute,
      which contains the peer's identity, in the EAP-Response/AKA-
      Identity message.

   The identity carried above may be a permanent identity or a pseudonym
   identity or fast re-authentication identity as defined in this RFC.

   In networks where EAP is the only part handling such pseudonym or
   fast re-authentication identities, this usage is clear.  However, 5G
   supports the concept of pseudonym or privacy identifiers, and it is
   important for interoperability that the right type of identifiers are
   used in the right place.

   5G defines the SUbscription Permanent Identifier (SUPI) and
   SUbscription Concealed Identifier (SUCI) [TS-3GPP.23.501]
   [TS-3GPP.33.501].  SUPI is globally unique and allocated to each
   subscriber.  However, it is only used internally in the 5G network,
   and is privacy sensitive.  The SUCI is a privacy preserving
   identifier containing the concealed SUPI, using public key
   cryptography to encrypt the SUPI.

   Given the choice between these two types of identifiers, two areas
   need further specification in EAP-AKA' to ensure that different
   implementations understand each other and stay interoperable:

   o  Where identifiers are used within EAP-AKA' -- such as key
      derivation -- specify what values exactly should be used, to avoid
      ambiguity.

   o  Where identifiers are carried within EAP-AKA' packets -- such as
      in the AT_IDENTITY attribute -- specify which identifiers should
      be filled in.

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   In 5G, the normal mode of operation is that identifiers are only
   transmitted outside EAP.  However, in a system involving terminals
   from many generations and several connectivity options via 5G and
   other mechanisms, implementations and the EAP-AKA' specification need
   to prepare for many different situations, including sometimes having
   to communicate identities within EAP.

   The following sections propose one way of clarifying which
   identifiers are used and how.  However, other answers are also
   possible (e.g., always use the permanent identity).  Further
   discussion on this point is welcome!

5.1.  Key Derivation

   In EAP-AKA', the peer identity is used in the Section 3.3 key
   derivation formula.  The identity used in this formula MUST be
   exactly the one sent in EAP-AKA' AT_IDENTITY attribute, if one was
   sent, regardless of the kind of identity that it may have been.  If
   no AT_IDENTITY was sent, the identity MUST be the exactly the one
   sent in the generic EAP Identity exchange, if one was made.  Again,
   the identity MUST be used exactly as sent.

      Alternative specification: This could also require that the SUPI
      identity be always used, regardless of what identity was sent.

   If no identity was communicated inside EAP, then the identity is the
   one communicated outside EAP in link layer messaging.

   In this case, the used identity MUST be the identity most recently
   communicated by the peer to the network, again regardless of what
   type of identity it may have been.

5.2.  EAP Identity Response and EAP-AKA' AT_IDENTITY Attribute

   The EAP authentication option is only available in 5G when the new 5G
   core network is also in use.  However, in other networks an EAP-AKA'
   peer may be connecting to other types of networks and existing
   equipment.

   When the EAP peer is connecting to a 5G access network and uses the
   5G core network signalling mechanisms, it MUST assume that the EAP
   server is in a 5G network.  In that situation, the EAP peer SHOULD
   employ only the privacy preserving SUCI identifier within EAP (either
   in EAP Identity Response or EAP-AKA' AT_IDENTITY attribute).

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   Similarly, if the peer is explicitly communicating through mechanisms
   developed for 5G to connect to 5G networks over WLAN, it MUST assume
   that the EAP server is in a 5G network, and again employ the SUCI
   within EAP.

   Otherwise, the peer SHOULD employ IMSI or SUPI as it is configured to
   use.

   The use of fast re-authentication and pseudonym identifiers in 5G or
   other networks is for further discussion.  Discussion of this topic
   is again welcome!

6.  Exported Parameters

   The EAP-AKA' Session-Id is the concatenation of the EAP Type Code
   (50, one octet) with the contents of the RAND field from the AT_RAND
   attribute, followed by the contents of the AUTN field in the AT_AUTN
   attribute:

      Session-Id = 50 || RAND || AUTN

   When using fast re-authentication, the EAP-AKA' Session-Id is the
   concatenation of the EAP Type Code (50) with the contents of the
   NONCE_S field from the AT_NONCE_S attribute, followed by the contents
   of the MAC field from the AT_MAC attribute from EAP-Request/AKA-
   Reauthentication:

      Session-Id = 50 || NONCE_S || MAC

   The Peer-Id is the contents of the Identity field from the
   AT_IDENTITY attribute, using only the Actual Identity Length octets
   from the beginning.  Note that the contents are used as they are
   transmitted, regardless of whether the transmitted identity was a
   permanent, pseudonym, or fast EAP re-authentication identity.  The
   Server-Id is the null string (zero length).

7.  Security Considerations

   A summary of the security properties of EAP-AKA' follows.  These
   properties are very similar to those in EAP-AKA.  We assume that
   SHA-256 is at least as secure as SHA-1.  This is called the SHA-256
   assumption in the remainder of this section.  Under this assumption,
   EAP-AKA' is at least as secure as EAP-AKA.

   If the AT_KDF attribute has value 1, then the security properties of
   EAP-AKA' are as follows:

   Protected ciphersuite negotiation



Arkko, et al.           Expires September 6, 2018              [Page 18]


Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


      EAP-AKA' has no ciphersuite negotiation mechanisms.  It does have
      a negotiation mechanism for selecting the key derivation
      functions.  This mechanism is secure against bidding down attacks.
      The negotiation mechanism allows changing the offered key
      derivation function, but the change is visible in the final EAP-
      Request/AKA'-Challenge message that the server sends to the peer.
      This message is authenticated via the AT_MAC attribute, and
      carries both the chosen alternative and the initially offered
      list.  The peer refuses to accept a change it did not initiate.
      As a result, both parties are aware that a change is being made
      and what the original offer was.

   Mutual authentication

      Under the SHA-256 assumption, the properties of EAP-AKA' are at
      least as good as those of EAP-AKA in this respect.  Refer to
      [RFC4187], Section 12 for further details.

   Integrity protection

      Under the SHA-256 assumption, the properties of EAP-AKA' are at
      least as good (most likely better) as those of EAP-AKA in this
      respect.  Refer to [RFC4187], Section 12 for further details.  The
      only difference is that a stronger hash algorithm, SHA-256, is
      used instead of SHA-1.

   Replay protection

      Under the SHA-256 assumption, the properties of EAP-AKA' are at
      least as good as those of EAP-AKA in this respect.  Refer to
      [RFC4187], Section 12 for further details.

   Confidentiality

      The properties of EAP-AKA' are exactly the same as those of EAP-
      AKA in this respect.  Refer to [RFC4187], Section 12 for further
      details.

   Key derivation

      EAP-AKA' supports key derivation with an effective key strength
      against brute force attacks equal to the minimum of the length of
      the derived keys and the length of the AKA base key, i.e., 128
      bits or more.  The key hierarchy is specified in Section 3.3.

      The Transient EAP Keys used to protect EAP-AKA packets (K_encr,
      K_aut, K_re), the MSK, and the EMSK are cryptographically
      separate.  If we make the assumption that SHA-256 behaves as a

      pseudo-random function, an attacker is incapable of deriving any
      non-trivial information about any of these keys based on the other
      keys.  An attacker also cannot calculate the pre-shared secret
      from IK, CK, IK', CK', K_encr, K_aut, K_re, MSK, or EMSK by any
      practically feasible means.

      EAP-AKA' adds an additional layer of key derivation functions
      within itself to protect against the use of compromised keys.
      This is discussed further in Section 7.1.

      EAP-AKA' uses a pseudo-random function modeled after the one used
      in IKEv2 [RFC4306] together with SHA-256.

   Key strength

      See above.

   Dictionary attack resistance

      Under the SHA-256 assumption, the properties of EAP-AKA' are at
      least as good as those of EAP-AKA in this respect.  Refer to
      [RFC4187], Section 12 for further details.

   Fast reconnect

      Under the SHA-256 assumption, the properties of EAP-AKA' are at
      least as good as those of EAP-AKA in this respect.  Refer to
      [RFC4187], Section 12 for further details.  Note that
      implementations MUST prevent performing a fast reconnect across
      method types.

   Cryptographic binding

      Note that this term refers to a very specific form of binding,
      something that is performed between two layers of authentication.
      It is not the same as the binding to a particular network name.
      The properties of EAP-AKA' are exactly the same as those of EAP-
      AKA in this respect, i.e., as it is not a tunnel method, this
      property is not applicable to it.  Refer to [RFC4187], Section 12
      for further details.

   Session independence

      The properties of EAP-AKA' are exactly the same as those of EAP-
      AKA in this respect.  Refer to [RFC4187], Section 12 for further
      details.

      The properties of EAP-AKA' are exactly the same as those of EAP-
      AKA in this respect.  Refer to [RFC4187], Section 12 for further
      details.

   Channel binding

      EAP-AKA', like EAP-AKA, does not provide channel bindings as
      they're defined in [RFC3748] and [RFC5247].  New skippable
      attributes can be used to add channel binding support in the
      future, if required.

      However, including the Network Name field in the AKA' algorithms
      (which are also used for other purposes than EAP-AKA') provides a
      form of cryptographic separation between different network names,
      which resembles channel bindings.  However, the network name does
      not typically identify the EAP (pass-through) authenticator.  See
      the following section for more discussion.

7.1.  Security Properties of Binding Network Names

   The ability of EAP-AKA' to bind the network name into the used keys
   provides some additional protection against key leakage to
   inappropriate parties.  The keys used in the protocol are specific to
   a particular network name.  If key leakage occurs due to an accident,
   access node compromise, or another attack, the leaked keys are only
   useful when providing access with that name.  For instance, a
   malicious access point cannot claim to be network Y if it has stolen
   keys from network X.  Obviously, if an access point is compromised,
   the malicious node can still represent the compromised node.  As a
   result, neither EAP-AKA' nor any other extension can prevent such
   attacks; however, the binding to a particular name limits the
   attacker's choices, allows better tracking of attacks, makes it
   possible to identify compromised networks, and applies good
   cryptographic hygiene.

   The server receives the EAP transaction from a given access network,
   and verifies that the claim from the access network corresponds to
   the name that this access network should be using.  It becomes
   impossible for an access network to claim over AAA that it is another
   access network.  In addition, if the peer checks that the information
   it has received locally over the network-access link layer matches
   with the information the server has given it via EAP-AKA', it becomes
   impossible for the access network to tell one story to the AAA
   network and another one to the peer.  These checks prevent some
   "lying NAS" (Network Access Server) attacks.  For instance, a roaming
   partner, R, might claim that it is the home network H in an effort to
   lure peers to connect to itself.  Such an attack would be beneficial
   for the roaming partner if it can attract more users, and damaging

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   for the users if their access costs in R are higher than those in
   other alternative networks, such as H.

   Any attacker who gets hold of the keys CK and IK, produced by the AKA
   algorithm, can compute the keys CK' and IK' and, hence, the Master
   Key (MK) according to the rules in Section 3.3.  The attacker could
   then act as a lying NAS.  In 3GPP systems in general, the keys CK and
   IK have been distributed to, for instance, nodes in a visited access
   network where they may be vulnerable.  In order to reduce this risk,
   the AKA algorithm MUST be computed with the AMF separation bit set to
   1, and the peer MUST check that this is indeed the case whenever it
   runs EAP-AKA'.  Furthermore, [TS-3GPP.33.402] requires that no CK or
   IK keys computed in this way ever leave the home subscriber system.

   The additional security benefits obtained from the binding depend
   obviously on the way names are assigned to different access networks.
   This is specified in [TS-3GPP.24.302].  See also [TS-3GPP.23.003].
   Ideally, the names allow separating each different access technology,
   each different access network, and each different NAS within a
   domain.  If this is not possible, the full benefits may not be
   achieved.  For instance, if the names identify just an access
   technology, use of compromised keys in a different technology can be
   prevented, but it is not possible to prevent their use by other
   domains or devices using the same technology.

8.  IANA Considerations

8.1.  Type Value

   EAP-AKA' has the EAP Type value 50 in the Extensible Authentication
   Protocol (EAP) Registry under Method Types.  Per Section 6.2 of
   [RFC3748], this allocation can be made with Designated Expert and
   Specification Required.

8.2.  Attribute Type Values

   EAP-AKA' shares its attribute space and subtypes with EAP-SIM
   [RFC4186] and EAP-AKA [RFC4187].  No new registries are needed.

   However, a new Attribute Type value (23) in the non-skippable range
   has been assigned for AT_KDF_INPUT (Section 3.1) in the EAP-AKA and
   EAP-SIM Parameters registry under Attribute Types.

   Also, a new Attribute Type value (24) in the non-skippable range has
   been assigned for AT_KDF (Section 3.2).

   Finally, a new Attribute Type value (136) in the skippable range has
   been assigned for AT_BIDDING (Section 4).

8.3.  Key Derivation Function Namespace

   IANA has also created a new namespace for EAP-AKA' AT_KDF Key
   Derivation Function Values.  This namespace exists under the EAP-AKA
   and EAP-SIM Parameters registry.  The initial contents of this
   namespace are given below; new values can be created through the

Appendix A.  Changes from RFC 5448

   The changes consist first of all, referring to a newer version of
   [TS-3GPP.24.302].  The new version includes an updated definition of
   the Network Name field, to include 5G.

   Secondly, identifier usage for 5G has been specified in Section 5.

   Thirdly, exported parameters for EAP-AKA' have been defined in
   Section 6, as required by [RFC5247], including the definition of
   those parameters for both full authentication and fast re-
   authentication.

Appendix B.  Changes from RFC 4187 to RFC 5448

   The changes to RFC 4187 relate only to the bidding down prevention
   support defined in Section 4.  In particular, this document does not
   change how the Master Key (MK) is calculated in RFC 4187 (it uses CK
   and IK, not CK' and IK'); neither is any processing of the AMF bit
   added to RFC 4187.

Appendix C.  Importance of Explicit Negotiation

   Choosing between the traditional and revised AKA key derivation
   functions is easy when their use is unambiguously tied to a
   particular radio access network, e.g., Long Term Evolution (LTE) as
   defined by 3GPP or evolved High Rate Packet Data (eHRPD) as defined
   by 3GPP2.  There is no possibility for interoperability problems if
   this radio access network is always used in conjunction with new
   protocols that cannot be mixed with the old ones; clients will always
   know whether they are connecting to the old or new system.

   However, using the new key derivation functions over EAP introduces
   several degrees of separation, making the choice of the correct key
   derivation functions much harder.  Many different types of networks
   employ EAP.  Most of these networks have no means to carry any
   information about what is expected from the authentication process.
   EAP itself is severely limited in carrying any additional
   information, as noted in [RFC4284] and [RFC5113].  Even if these
   networks or EAP were extended to carry additional information, it
   would not affect millions of deployed access networks and clients
   attaching to them.

Internet-Draft                  EAP-AKA'                      March 2018


   Simply changing the key derivation functions that EAP-AKA [RFC4187]
   uses would cause interoperability problems with all of the existing
   implementations.  Perhaps it would be possible to employ strict
   separation into domain names that should be used by the new clients
   and networks.  Only these new devices would then employ the new key
   derivation mechanism.  While this can be made to work for specific
   cases, it would be an extremely brittle mechanism, ripe to result in
   problems whenever client configuration, routing of authentication
   requests, or server configuration does not match expectations.  It
   also does not help to assume that the EAP client and server are
   running a particular release of 3GPP network specifications.  Network
   vendors often provide features from future releases early or do not
   provide all features of the current release.  And obviously, there
   are many EAP and even some EAP-AKA implementations that are not
   bundled with the 3GPP network offerings.  In general, these
   approaches are expected to lead to hard-to-diagnose problems and
   increased support calls.

Appendix D.  Test Vectors

   Test vectors are provided below for four different cases.  The test
   vectors may be useful for testing implementations.  In the first two
   cases, we employ the Milenage algorithm and the algorithm
   configuration parameters (the subscriber key K and operator algorithm
   variant configuration value OP) from test set 19 in [TS-3GPP.35.208].

   The last two cases use artificial values as the output of AKA, and is
   useful only for testing the computation of values within EAP-AKA',
   not AKA itself.

   Case 1

      The parameters for the AKA run are as follows:

         Identity: "0555444333222111"

         Network name: "WLAN"
