                        Lightweight CMP Profile
            draft-brockhaus-lamps-lightweight-cmp-profile-01

Abstract

   The goal of this document is to facilitate interoperability and
   automation by profiling the Certificate Management Protocol (CMP)
   version 2 and the related Certificate Request Message Format (CRMF)
   version 2.  It specifies a subset of CMP and CRMF focusing on typical
   uses cases relevant for managing certificates of devices in many
   industrial and IoT scenarios.  To limit the overhead of certificate
   management for more constrained devices only the most crucial types
   of transactions are specified as mandatory.  To foster
   interoperability also in more complex scenarios, other types of
   transactions are specified as recommended or optional.

   o  Minor changes in wording.

   From version draft-brockhaus-lamps-industrial-cmp-profile-00 ->
   brockhaus-lamps-lightweight-cmp-profile-00:

   o  Change focus from industrial to more multi-purpose use cases and
      lightweight CMP profile.

   o  Incorporate the omitted confirmation into the header specified in
      Section 4.1 and described in the standard enrollment use case in
      Section 5.1.1 due to discussion with Tomas Gustavsson.

   o  Change from OPTIONAL to RECOMMENDED for use case 'Revoke another's
      entities certificate' in Section 6.2, because it is regarded as
      important functionality in many environments to enable the
      management station to revoke EE certificates.

   o  Complete the specification of the revocation message flow in
      Section 5.2 and Section 6.2.

   o  The CoAP based transport mechanism and piggybacking of CMP
      messages on top of other reliable transport protocols is out of
      scope of this document and would need to be specified in another
      document.

   o  Further minor changes in wording.

2.  Introduction

   This document specifies PKI management operations supporting machine-
   to-machine and IoT use cases.  The focus lies on maximum automation
   and interoperable implementation of all involved PKI entities from
   end entities (EE) through an optional Local Registration Authority
   (LRA) and the RA up to the CA.  The profile makes use of the concepts
   and syntax specified in CMP [RFC4210], CRMF [RFC4211], HTTP transfer
   for CMP [RFC6712], and CMP Updates [I-D.brockhaus-lamps-cmp-updates].
   Especially CMP and CRMF are very feature-rich standards, while only a
   limited subset of the specified functionality is needed in many
   environments.  Additionally, the standards are not always precise
   enough on how to interpret and implement the described concepts.
   Therefore, we aim at tailoring and specifying in more detail how to
   use these concepts to implement lightweight automated certificate
   management.

Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


2.1.  Motivation for profiling CMP

   CMP was standardized in 1999 and is implemented in several CA
   products.  In 2005 a completely reworked and enhanced version 2 of
   CMP [RFC4210] and CRMF [RFC4211] has been published followed by a
   document specifying a transfer mechanism for CMP messages using http
   [RFC6712] in 2012.

   Though CMP is a very solid and capable protocol it could be used more
   widely.  The most important reason for not more intense application
   of CMP appears to be that the protocol is offering a large set of
   features and options but being not always precise enough and leaving
   room for interpretation.  On the one hand, this makes CMP applicable
   to a very wide range of scenarios, but on the other hand a full
   implementation of all options is unrealistic because this would take
   enormous effort.

   Moreover, many details of the CMP protocol have been left open or
   have not been specified in full preciseness.  The profiles specified
   in Appendix D and E of [RFC4210] offer some more detailed certificate
   use cases.  But the specific needs of highly automated scenarios for
   a machine-to-machine communication are not covered sufficiently.

   As also 3GPP and UNISG already put across, profiling is a way of
   coping with the challenges mentioned above.  To profile means to take
   advantage of the strengths of the given protocol, while explicitly
   narrowing down the options it provides to exactly those needed for
   the purpose(s) at hand and eliminating all identified ambiguities.
   In this way all the general and applicable aspects of the protocol
   can be taken over and only the peculiarities of the target scenario
   need to be dealt with specifically.

   Doing such a profiling for a new target environment can be a high
   effort because the range of available options needs to be well
   understood and the selected options need to be consistent with each
   other and with the intended usage scenario.  Since most industrial
   use cases typically have much in common it is worth sharing this
   effort, which is the aim of this document.  Other standardization
   bodies can then reference the profile from this document and do not
   need to come up with individual profiles.

2.2.  Motivation for a lightweight profile for CMP

   The profiles specified in Appendix D and E of CMP have been developed
   in particular to manage certificates of human end entities.  With the
   evolution of distributed systems and client-server architectures,
   certificates for machines and applications on them have become widely
   used.  This trend has strengthened even more in emerging industrial



Brockhaus, et al.          Expires May 6, 2020                  [Page 5]


Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   and IoT scenarios.  CMP is sufficiently flexible to support these
   very well.

   Today's IT security architectures for industrial solutions typically
   use certificates for endpoint authentication within protocols like
   IPSec, TLS, or SSH.  Therefore, the security of these architectures
   highly relies upon the security and availability of the implemented
   certificate management procedures.

   Due to increasing security in operational networks as well as
   availability requirements, especially on critical infrastructures and
   systems with a high volume of certificates, a state-of-the-art
   certificate management must be constantly available and cost-
   efficient, which calls for high automation and reliability.  The NIST
   Cyber Security Framework [NIST-CSFW] also refers to proper processes
   for issuance, management, verification, revocation, and audit for
   authorized devices, users and processes involving identity and
   credential management.  Such PKI operation according to commonly
   accepted best practices is also required in IEC 62443-3-3
   [IEC62443-3-3] for security level 2 up to security level 4.

   Further challenges in many industrial systems are network
   segmentation and asynchronous communication, where PKI operation is
   often not deployed on-site but in a more protected environment of a
   data center or trust center.  Certificate management must be able to
   cope with such network architectures.  CMP offers the required
   flexibility and functionality, namely self-contained messages,
   efficient polling, and support for asynchronous message transfer with
   end-to-end security.

2.3.  Existing CMP profiles

   As already stated, CMP contains profiles with mandatory and optional
   transactions in the Appendixes D and E of [RFC4210].  Those profiles
   focus on management of human user certificates and do only partly
   address the specific needs for certificate management automation for
   unattended machine or application-oriented end entities.

   3GPP makes use of CMP [RFC4210] in its Technical Specification 133
   310 [ETSI-3GPP] for automatic management of IPSec certificates in
   UMTS, LTE, and 5G backbone networks.  Since 2010 a dedicated CMP
   profile for initial certificate enrollment and update transactions
   between end entities and the RA/CA is specified in the document.

   UNISIG has included a CMP profile for certificate enrollment in the
   subset 137 specifying the ETRAM/ECTS on-line key management for train
   control systems [UNISIG] in 2015.




Brockhaus, et al.          Expires May 6, 2020                  [Page 6]


Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   Both standardization bodies use CMP [RFC4210], CRMF [RFC4211], and
   HTTP transfer for CMP [RFC6712] to add tailored means for automated
   certificate management for unattended machine or application-oriented
   end entities.

2.4.  Compatibility with existing CMP profiles

   The profile specified in this document is compatible with CMP
   [RFC4210] Appendixes D and E (PKI Management Message Profiles), with
   the following exceptions:

   o  signature-based protection is the default protection; initial
      transactions may also use HMAC,

   o  certification of a second key pair within the same transaction is
      not supported,

   o  proof-of-possession (POPO) with self-signature of the certTemplate
      according to [RFC4211] section 4.1 clause 3 is the only supported
      POPO method,

   o  confirmation of newly enrolled certificates may be omitted, and

   o  all transactions consist of request-response message pairs
      originating at the EE, i.e., announcement messages are omitted.

   The profile specified in this document is compatible with the CMP
   profile for UMTS, LTE, and 5G network domain security and
   authentication framework [ETSI-3GPP], except that:

   o  protection of initial transactions may be HMAC-based,

   o  the subject name is mandatory in certificate templates, and

   o  confirmation of newly enrolled certificates may be omitted.

   The profile specified in this document is compatible with the CMP
   profile for on-line key management in rail networks as specified in
   UNISIG subset-137 [UNISIG], except that:

   o  as of RFC 4210 [RFC4210] the messageTime is required to be
      Greenwich Mean Time coded as generalizedTime (Note: While UNISIG
      explicitely states that the messageTime in required to be 'UTC
      time', it is not clear if this means a coding as UTCTime or
      generalizedTime and if other time zones than Greenwich Mean Time
      shall be allowed.  Therefore UNISG may be in conflict with
      RFC 4210 [RFC4210].  Both time formats are described in RFC 5280
      [RFC5280] section 4.1.2.5.), and

Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   o  in case the request message is MAC protected, also the response,
      certConf, and PKIconf messages have a MAC-based protection (Note:
      if changing to signature protection of the response the caPubs
      field cannot be used securely anymore.).

2.5.  Scope of this document

   This document specifies requirements on generating messages on the
   sender side.  It does not specify strictness of verification on the
   receiving side and how in detail to handle error cases.

   Especially on the EE side this profile aims at a lightweight protocol
   that can be implemented on more constrained devices.  On the side of
   the central PKI management entities the profile accepts higher
   resource needed.

   For the sake of robustness and preservation of security properties
   implementations should, as far as security is not affected, adhere to
   Postel's law: "Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you
   accept from others" (often reworded as: "Be conservative in what you
   send, be liberal in what you accept").

   When in chapter 3, 4, and 5 a field of the ASN.1 syntax as defined in
   RFC 4210 [RFC4210] and RFC 4211 [RFC4211] is not explicitly
   specified, it SHOULD not be used by the sending entity.  The
   receiving entity MUST NOT require its absence and if present MUST
   gracefully handle its presence.

2.6.  Structure of this document

   Chapter 2 introduces the general PKI architecture and approach to
   certificate management using CMP that is assumed in this document.
   Then it enlists the PKI management opertations specified in this
   document and describes them in general words.  The list of supported
   certificate management use cases is divided into mandatory,
   recommended, and optional ones.

   Chapter 3 profiles the CMP message header, protection, and extraCerts
   section as they are general elements of CMP messages.

   Chapter 4 profiles the exchange of CMP messages between an EE and the
   first PKI management entities.  There are various flavors of
   certificate enrollment requests optionally with polling, revocation,
   error handling, and general support transactions.

   Chapter 5 profiles the exchange between PKI management entities.
   These are in the first place the forwarding of messages coming from
   or going to an EE.  This includes also initiating delayed delivery of



Brockhaus, et al.          Expires May 6, 2020                  [Page 8]


Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   messages, which involves polling.  Additionally, it specifies
   transactions where the PKI component manages certificates on behalf
   of an EE or for itself.

   Chapter 6 outlines different mechanisms for CMP message transfer,
   namely http-based transfer as already specified in [RFC6712], using
   an additional TLS layer, or offline file-based transport.  CoAP
   [RFC7252] and piggybacking CMP messages on other protocols is out of
   scope and left for further documents.

2.7.  Convention and Terminology

   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].

   In this document, these words will appear with that interpretation
   only when in ALL CAPS.  Lower case uses of these words are not to be
   interpreted as carrying significance described in RFC 2119.

   Technical terminology is used in conformance with RFC 4210 [RFC4210],
   RFC 4211 [RFC4211], RFC 5280 [RFC5280], and IEEE 802.1AR
   [IEEE802.1AR].  The following key words are used:

   CA:     Certification authority, which issues certificates.

   RA:     Registration authority, an optional system component to which
           a CA delegates certificate management functions such as
           authorization checks.

   LRA:    Local registration authority, an optional RA system component
           with proximity to the end entities.

   KGA:    Key generation authority, an optional system component,
           typically co-located with an LRA, RA, or CA, that offers key
           generation services to end entities.

   EE:     End entity, a user, device, or service that holds a PKI
           certificate.  An identifier for the EE is given as the
           subject of its certificate.

3.  Architecture and use cases

3.1.  Solution architecture

   Typically, a machine EE will be equipped with a manufacturer issued
   certificate during production.  Such a manufacturer issued
   certificate is installed during production to identify the device

   throughout its lifetime.  This manufacturer certificate can be used
   to protect the initial enrollment of operational certificates after
   installation of the EE in a plant or industrial network.  An
   operational certificate is issued by the owner or operator of the
   device to identify the device during operation, e.g., within a
   security protocol like IPSec, TLS, or SSH.  In IEEE 802.1AR
   [IEEE802.1AR] a manufacturer certificate is called IDevID certificate
   and an operational certificate is called LDevID certificate.

   All certificate management transactions are initiated by the EE.  The
   EE creates a CMP request message, protects it using its manufacturer
   or operational certificate, if available, and sends it to its locally
   reachable PKI component.  This PKI component may be an LRA, RA, or
   the CA, which checks the request, responds to it itself, or forwards
   the request upstream to the next PKI component.  In case an (L)RA
   changes the CMP request message header or body or wants to prove a
   successful verification or authorization, it can apply a protection
   of its own.  Especially the communication between an LRA and RA can
   be performed synchronously or asynchronously.  Synchronous
   communication describes a timely uninterrupted communication between
   two communication partners, as asynchronous communication is not
   performed in a timely consistent manner, e.g., because of a delayed
   message delivery.

   In operation environments a layered LRA-RA-CA architecture can be
   deployed, e.g., with LRAs bundling requests from multiple EEs at
   dedicated locations and one (or more than one) central RA aggregating
   the requests from multiple LRAs.  Every (L)RA in this scenario will
   have its own dedicated certificate containing an extended key usage
   as specified in CMP Updates [I-D.brockhaus-lamps-cmp-updates] and
   private key allowing it to protect CMP messages it processes (CMP
   signing key/certificate).  The figure above shows an architecture
   using one LRA and one RA.  It is also possible to have only an RA or
   multiple LRAs and/or RAs.  Depending on the network infrastructure,

   the communication between different PKI components may be synchronous
   online-communication, delayed asynchronous communication, or even
   offline file transfer.

   As this profile focusses on specifying the pull model, where the EE
   always requests a PKI management operation.  CMP response messages,
   especially in case of central key generation as described in
   Section 5.1.6, can also be used to deliver proactively to the EE to
   implement the push model.

   Third-party CAs typically implement different variants of CMP or even
   use proprietary interfaces for certificate management.  Therefore,
   the LRA or the RA may need to adapt the exchanged CMP messages to the
   flavor of communication required by the CA.

3.2.  Basic generic CMP message content

   Section 4 specifies the generic parts of the CMP messages as used
   later in Section 5 and Section 6.

4.  Generic parts of the PKI message

   To reduce redundancy in the text and to ease implementation, the
   contents of the header, protection, and extraCerts fields of the CMP
   messages used in the transactions specified in Section 5 and
   Section 6 are standardized to the maximum extent possible.
   Therefore, the generic parts of a CMP message are described centrally
   in this section.

Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   As described in section 5.1 of [RFC4210], all CMP messages have the
   following general structure:

              +--------------------------------------------+
              | PKIMessage                                 |
              | +----------------------------------------+ |
              | | header                                 | |
              | +----------------------------------------+ |
              | +----------------------------------------+ |
              | | body                                   | |

              | | extraCerts (OPTIONAL)                  | |
              | +----------------------------------------+ |
              +--------------------------------------------+

                      Figure 2: CMP message structure

   The general contents of the message header, protection, and
   extraCerts fields are specified in the Section 4.1 to Section 4.3.

   In case a specific CMP message needs different contents in the
   header, protection, or extraCerts fields, the differences are
   described in the respective message.

   The CMP message body contains the message-specific information.  It
   is described in the context of Section 5 and Section 6.

   The behavior in case an error occurs while handling a CMP message is
   described in Section 6.3.

4.1.  General description of the CMP message header

   This section describes the generic header field of all CMP messages
   with signature-based protection.  The only variations described here
   are in the fields recipient, transactionID, and recipNonce of the
   first message of a transaction.

   In case a message has MAC-based protection the changes are described
   in the respective section.  The variations will affect the fields
   sender, protectionAlg, and senderKID.

   For requirements about proper random number generation please refer
   to [RFC4086].  Any message-specific fields or variations are
   described in the respective sections of this chapter.

4.2.  General description of the CMP message protection

   This section describes the generic protection field of all CMP
   messages with signature-based protection.

   protection                    REQUIRED
       -- MUST contain the signature calculated using the signature
       -- algorithm specified in protectionAlg

   Only for MAC-based protection major differences apply as described in
   the respective message.

   The CMP message protection provides, if available, message origin
   authentication and integrity protection for the CMP message header
   and body.  The CMP message extraCerts is not covered by this
   protection.

   NOTE: The requirements for checking certificates given in [RFC5280]
   MUST be followed for the CMP message protection.  OCSP or CRLs SHOULD
   be used for status checking of the CMP signer certificates of
   communication partners.

4.3.  General description of CMP message extraCerts

   This section describes the generic extraCerts field of all CMP
   messages with signature-based protection.

   extraCerts                    RECOMMENDED
       -- SHOULD contain the signing certificate together with its
       -- chain, if needed
       -- If present, the first certificate in this field MUST
       -- be the certificate used for signing this message
       -- Self-signed certificates SHOULD NOT be included in
       -- extraCerts and MUST NOT be trusted based on the listing in
       -- extraCerts in any case

5.  End Entity focused certificate management use cases

   This chapter focuses on the communication of the EE and the first PKI
   component it talks to.  Depending on the network and PKI solution,
   this will either be the LRA, the RA or the CA.

Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   Profiles of the Certificate Management Protocol (CMP) [RFC4210]
   handled in this chapter cover the following certificate management
   use cases:

   o  Requesting a certificate from a PKI with variations like initial
      requests and updating, central key generation and different
      protection means

   o  Revocation of a certificate

   o  General messages for further support functions

   The use cases mainly specify the message body of the CMP messages and
   utilize the specification of the message header, protection and
   extraCerts as specified in Section 5.

   The behavior in case an error occurs is described in Section 5.3.

   This chapter is aligned to Appendix D and Appendix E of [RFC4210].
   The general rules for interpretation stated in Appendix D.1 in
   [RFC4210] need to be applied here, too.

   This document does not mandate any specific supported algorithms like
   Appendix D.2 of [RFC4210], [ETSI-3GPP], and [UNISIG] do.  Using the
   message sequences described here require agreement upon the
   algorithms to support and thus the algorithm identifiers for the
   specific target environment.

5.1.  Requesting a new certificate from a PKI

   There are different approaches to request a certificate from a PKI.

   These approaches differ on the one hand in the way the EE can
   authenticate itself to the PKI it wishes to get a new certificate
   from and on the other hand in its capabilities to generate a proper
   new key pair.  The authentication means may be as follows:

   o  Using a certificate from a trusted PKI and the corresponding
      private key, e.g., a manufacturer certificate

   o  Using the certificate to be updated and the corresponding private
      key

   o  Using a shared secret known to the EE and the PKI

   Typically, such EE requests a certificate from a CA.  When the (L)RA/
   CA responds with a message containing a certificate, the EE MUST

Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   reply with a confirmation message.  The (L)RA/CA then MUST send
   confirmation back, closing the transaction.

   The message sequences in this section allow the EE to request
   certification of a locally generated public-private key pair.  For
   requirements about proper random number and key generation please
   refer to [RFC4086].  The EE MUST provide a signature-based proof-of-
   possession of the private key associated with the public key
   contained in the certificate request as defined by [RFC4211] section
   4.1 case 3.  To this end it is assumed that the private key can
   technically be used as signing key.  The most commonly used
   algorithms are RSA and ECDSA, which can technically be used for
   signature calculation regardless of potentially intended restrictions
   of the key usage.

   The requesting EE provides the binding of the proof-of-possession to
   its identity by signature-based or MAC-based protection of the CMP
   request message containing that POPO.  The (L)RA/CA needs to verify
   whether this EE is authorized to obtain a certificate with the
   requested subject and other attributes and extensions.  Especially
   when removing the protection provided by the EE and applying a new
   protection the (L)RA MUST verify in particular the included proof-of-
   possession self-signature of the certTemplate using the public key of
   the requested certificate and MUST check that the EE, as
   authenticated by the message protection, is authorized to request a
   certificate with the subject as specified in the certTemplate (see
   Section 6.1.2).

   There are several ways to install the Root CA certificate of a new
   PKI on an EE.  The installation can be performed in an out-of-band
   manner, using general messagesm, a voucher [RFC8366], or other
   formats for enrolment, or in-band of CMP by the caPubs field in the
   certificate response message.  In case the installation of the new
   Root CA certificate is performed using the caPubs field, the
   certificate response message MUST be properly authenticated, and the
   sender of this message MUST be authorized to install new Root CA
   certificates on the EE.  This authorization MUST be indicated by the
   extended key usage in the (L)RA/CA certificate as specified in CMP
   Updates [I-D.brockhaus-lamps-cmp-updates].

5.1.1.  A certificate from a new PKI with signature protection

   This message sequence should be used by an EE to request a
   certificate of a new PKI using an existing certificate from an
   external PKI, e.g., a manufacturer certificate, to prove its identity
   to the new PKI.  The EE already has established trust in this new PKI
   it is about to enroll to, e.g., by configuration means.  The

   initialization request message is signature-protected using the
   existing certificate.

   Preconditions:

   1  The EE MUST have a certificate enrolled by an external PKI in
      advance to this transaction to authenticate itself to the (L)RA/CA
      using signature-based protection, e.g., using a manufacturer
      certificate.

   2  The EE SHOULD know the subject name of the new CA it requests a
      certificate from; this name MAY be established using an enrollment
      voucher or other configuration means.  If the EE does not know the
      name of the CA, the (L)RA/CA MUST know where to route this request
      to.

   3  The EE MUST authenticate responses from the (L)RA/CA; trust MAY be
      established using an enrollment voucher or other configuration
      means

   4  The (L)RA/CA MUST trust the external PKI the EE uses to
      authenticate itself; trust MAY be established using some
      configuration means

   This message sequence is like that given in [RFC4210] Appendix E.7.

   For this message sequence the EE MUST include exactly one single
   CertReqMsg in the ir.  If more certificates are required, further
   requests MUST be sent using separate CMP Messages.  If the EE wants
   to omit sending a certificate confirmation message after receiving
   the ip to reduce the number of protocol messages exchanged in a
   transaction, it MUST request this by setting the implicitControlValue
   in the ir to NULL.

   If the CA accepts the request it MUST return the new certificate in
   the certifiedKeyPair field of the ip message.  If the EE requested to
   omit sending a certConf message after receiving the ip, the (L)RA/CA
   MAY confirm this by also setting the implicitControlValue in the ip
   to NULL.

   If the EE did not request implicit confirmation or the request was
   not granted by the (L)RA/CA the confirmation as follows MUST be

   accepts it, the EE MUST send a certConf message, which MUST be
   answered by the (L)RA/CA with a pkiConf message.  If the (L)RA/CA

   this like a rejection by the EE.

   If the certificate request was refused by the CA, the (L)RA/CA must
   return an ip message containing the status code "rejection" and no

5.1.2.  A certificate from a trusted PKI with signature protection

   < TBD: In case the PKI is already trusted the cr/cp messages could be
   used instead of ir/ip.  It needs to be decided, whether an additional
   section should be added here, or the previous section should be
   extended to also cover this use case. >

5.1.3.  Update an existing certificate with signature protection

   This message sequence should be used by an EE to request an update of
   one of the certificates it already has and that is still valid.  The
   EE uses the certificate it wishes to update to prove its identity and
   possession of the private key for the certificate to be updated to
   the PKI.  Therefore, the key update request message is signed using
   the certificate that is to be updated.

   The general message flow for this message sequence is the same as
   given in Section 5.1.1.

   Preconditions:

   1  The certificate the EE wishes to update MUST NOT be expired or
      revoked.

   2  A new public-private key pair SHOULD be used.

   The message sequence for this exchange is like that given in
   [RFC4210] Appendix D.6.

   The message sequence for this exchange is identical to that given in
   Section 5.1.1, with the following changes:

   1  The body of the first request and response MUST be kur and kup,
      respectively.

   2  Protection of the kur MUST be performed using the certificate to
      be updated.

   3  The subject field of the CertTemplate MUST contain the subject
      name of the existing certificate to be updated, without
      modifications.

   4  The CertTemplate MUST contain the subject, issuer and publicKey
      fields only.

   5  The regCtrl OldCertId SHOULD be used to make clear, even in case
      an (L)RA changes the message protection, which certificate is to
      be.

5.1.4.  A certificate from a PKI with MAC protection

   This message sequence should be used by an EE to request a
   certificate of a new PKI without having a certificate to prove its
   identity to the target PKI, but there is a shared secret established
   between the EE and the PKI.  Therefore, the initialization request is
   MAC-protected using this shared secret.  The (L)RA checking the MAC-
   protection SHOULD replace this protection according to Section 6.1.2
   in case the next hop does not know the shared secret.

   For requirements with regard to proper random number and key
   generation please refer to [RFC4086].

   The general message flow for this message sequence is the same as
   given in Section 5.1.1.

   Preconditions:

   1  The EE and the (L)RA/CA MUST share a symmetric key, this MAY be
      established by a service technician during initial local
      configuration.

   2  The EE SHOULD know the subject name of the new CA it requests a
      certificate from; this name MAY be established using an enrollment
      voucher or other configuration means.  If the EE does not know the
      name of the CA, the (L)RA/CA MUST know where to route this request
      to.

   3  The EE MUST authenticate responses from the (L)RA/CA; trust MAY be
      established using the shared symmetric key.

   The message sequence for this exchange is like that given in
   [RFC4210] Appendix D.4.

   The message sequence for this exchange is identical to that given in
   Section 5.1.1, with the following changes:

   1  The protection of all messages MUST be calculated using Message
      Authentication Code (MAC); the protectionAlg field MUST be id-
      PasswordBasedMac as described in section 5.1.3.1 of [RFC4210].

   2  The sender MUST contain a name representing the originator of the
      message.  The senderKID MUST contain a reference all participating
      entities can use to identify the symmetric key used for the
      protection.

   3  The extraCerts of the ir, certConf, and PKIConf messages MUST be
      absent.

   4  The extraCerts of the ip message MUST contain the chain of the
      issued certificate and root certificates SHOULD not be included
      and MUST NOT be trusted in any case.

   Part of the protectionAlg structure, where the algorithm identifier
   MUST be id-PasswordBasedMac, is a PBMParameter sequence.  The fields
   of PBMParameter SHOULD remain constant for message protection
   throughout this certificate management transaction to reduce the

5.1.5.  A certificate from a legacy PKI using PKCS#10 request

   This message sequence should be used by an EE to request a
   certificate of a legacy PKI only capable to process PKCS#10 [RFC2986]
   certification requests.  The EE can prove its identity to the target
   PKI by using various protection means as described in Section 5.1.1
   or Section 5.1.4.

   In contrast to the other transactions described in Section 5.1, this
   transaction uses PKCS#10 [RFC2986] instead of CRMF [RFC4211] for the
   certificate request for compatibility reasons with legacy CA systems
   that require a PKCS#10 certificate request and cannot process CMP
   [RFC4210] or CRMF [RFC4211] messages.  In such case the (L)RA must
   extract the PKCS#10 certificate request from the p10cr and provides
   it separately to the CA.

   The general message flow for this message sequence is the same as
   given in Section 5.1.1, but the public key is contained in the
   subjectPKInfo of the PKCS#10 certificate request.

   Preconditions:

   1  The EE MUST either have a certificate enrolled from this or any
      other accepted PKI, or a shared secret known to the PKI and the EE
      to authenticate itself to the (L)RA/CA.

   2  The EE SHOULD know the subject name of the CA it requests a
      certificate from; this name MAY be established using an enrollment
      voucher or other configuration means.  If the EE does not know the
      name of the CA, the (L)RA/CA MUST know where to route this request
      to.

   3  The EE MUST authenticate responses from the (L)RA/CA; trust MAY be
      established by an available root certificate, using an enrollment
      voucher, or other configuration means.

   4  The (L)RA/CA MUST trust the current or the PKI the EE uses to
      authenticate itself; trust MAY be established by a corresponding
      available root certificate or using some configuration means.

   The profile for this exchange is identical to that given in
   Section 5.1.1, with the following changes:

   1  The body of the first request and response MUST be p10cr and cp,
      respectively.

   2  The subject name of the CA MUST be in the recipient field of the
      p10cr message header.

5.1.6.  Generate the key pair centrally at the (L)RA/CA

   This functional extension can be applied in combination with

   Section 5.1.4.  The functional extension can be used in case an EE is
   not abele or is not willing to generate is't new public-private key
   pair itself.  It is a matter of the local implementation which
   central PKI components will perform the key generation.  This

   component must have a proper (L)RA/CA certificate containing the
   additional extended key usage id-kp-cmcKGA to be identified by the EE
   as a legitimate key-generation instance.  In case the (L)RA generated
   the new key pair for the EE, it can use Section 5.1.1 to
   Section 5.1.4 to request the certificate for this key pair as usual.

   Generally speaking, in a machine-to-machine scenario it is strongly
   preferable to generate public-private key pairs locally at the EE.
   Together with proof-of-possession of the private key in the
   certification request, this is to make sure that only the entity
   identified in the newly issued certificate is the only entity who
   ever hold the private key.

   There are some cases where an EE is not able or not willing to
   locally generate the new key pair.  Reasons for this may be the
   following:

   o  Lack of sufficient initial entropy.

   Note: Good random numbers are not only needed for key generation, but
   also for session keys and nonces in any security protocol.
   Therefore, we believe that a decent security architecture should
   anyways support good random number generation on the EE side or
   provide enough entropy for the RNG seed during manufacturing to
   guarantee good initial pseudo-random number generation.

   o  Due to lack of computational resources, e.g., in case of RSA keys.

   Note: As key generation can be performed in advance to the
   certificate enrollment communication, it is typical not time
   critical.

   Note: Besides the initial enrollment right after the very first
   bootup of the device, where entropy available on the device may be
   insufficient, we do not see any good reason for central key
   generation.

   Note: As mentioned in Section 3.1 central key generation may be
   required in a push model, where the certificate response message is
   transfered by the (L)RA/CA to the EE without receiving a previos
   request message.

   If the EE wishes to request central key generation, it MUST fill the
   subjectPublicKey field in the certTemplate structure of the request
   message with a zero-length BIT STRING.  This indicates to the (L)RA/
   CA that a new key pair shall be generated centrally on behalf of the
   EE.

   Updates [I-D.brockhaus-lamps-cmp-updates] also the alternative
   EnvelopedData can be used.  In CRMF Section 2.1.9 [RFC4211] the use
   of EncryptedValue has been deprecated in favor of the EnvelopedData
   structure.  Therefore, this profile specifies using EnvelopedData as
   specified in CMS Section 6 [RFC5652] to offer more crypto agility.

                 Figure 3: Encrypted private key container

   The (L)RA/CA delivers the private key in the privateKey field in the
   certifiedKeyPair structure of the response message also containing
   the newly issued certificate.

   The private key MUST be wrapped in a SignedData structure, as
   specified in CMS Section 5 [RFC5652], signed by the KGA generating
   the key pair.  The signature MUST be performed using a CMP signer
   certificate asserting the extended key usage kp-id-cmpKGA as
   described in CMP Updates [I-D.brockhaus-lamps-cmp-updates] to show
   the authorization to generate key pairs on behalf of an EE.

   This SignedData structure MUST be wrapped in an EnvelopedData
   structure, as specified in CMS Section 6 [RFC5652], encrypting it
   using a newly generated symmetric content-encryption key.

   Note: Instead of the specification in CMP Appendix D 4.4 [RFC4210]
   this content-encryption key is not generated on the EE side.  As we
   just mentioned, central key generation should only be used in this
   profile in case of lack of randomness on the EE.

   As part of the EnvelopedData structure this content-encryption key
   MUST be securely provided to the EE using one of three key management
   techniques.  The choice of the key management technique to be used by
   the (L)RA/CA depends on the authentication mechanism the EE choose to
   protect the request message.

   o  MAC protected request message: The content-encryption key will be
      protected using the symmetric key-encryption key management
      technique, see Section 5.1.6.1.

   o  Signature protected request message using a certificate that
      contains a key usage extension asserting keyAgreement: The
      content-encryption key will be protected using the key agreement
      key management technique, see Section 5.1.6.2.

   o  Signature protected request message using a certificate that
      contains a key usage extension asserting keyEncipherment: The
      content-encryption key will be protected using the key transport
      key management technique, see Section 5.1.6.3.

   For encrypting the SignedData structure containing the private key a
   fresh content-encryption key MUST be generated with enough entropy
   with regard to the used symmetric encryption algorithm.

   Note: Depending on the lifetime of the certificate and the
   criticality of the generated private key, it is advisable to use the
   strongest possible symmetric encryption algorithm.  Therefore, this
   specification recommends using at least AES-256.

   This key management technique can be applied in combination with the
   message flow specified in Section 5.1.4 using MAC protected CMP
   messages.  The shared secret used for the MAC protection MUST also be
   used for the encryption of the content-encryption key but with a

   for the signature-based protection of the request message MUST also
   be used for key encipherment of the content-encryption key.  To use
   this key management technique the KeyTransRecipientInfo structure
   MUST be used in the contentInfo field.

   The KeyTransRecipientInfo structure included into the envelopedData
   structure is specified in CMS Section 6.2.1 [RFC5652].

       -- MUST be the encrypted content-encryption key

5.1.7.  Delayed enrollment

   This functional extension can be applied in combination with
   certificate enrollment as described in Section 5.1.1 to
   Section 5.1.5.  The functional extension can be used in case a (L)RA/
   CA cannot respond to the certificate request in a timely manner,
   e.g., due to offline upstream communication or required registration
   officer interaction.  Depending on the PKI architecture, it is not
   necessary that the PKI component directly communicating with the EE
   initiates the delayed enrollment.

   The PKI component initiating the delayed enrollment MUST include the
   status "waiting" in the response and this response MUST not contain
   the newly issued certificate.  When receiving a response with status
   "waiting" the EE MUST send a poll request to the (L)RA/CA.  The PKI
   component that initiated the delayed enrollment MUST answers with a
   poll response containing a checkAfter time.  This value indicates the
   minimum number of seconds that must elapse before the EE sends
   another poll request.  As soon as the (L)RA/CA can provide the final
   response message for the initial request of the EE, it MUST provide
   this in response to a poll request.  After receiving this response,
   the EE can continue the original message sequence as described in the
   respective section of this document, e.g., send a certConf message.

   Typically, intermediate PKI entities SHOULD NOT change the sender and
   recipient nonce even in case an intermediate (L)RA modifies a request
   or a response message.  In the special case of polling between EE and
   LRA with offline transport between an LRA and RA, see Section 6.1.3,

   an exception occurs.  The EE and LRA exchange pollReq and pollRep
   messages handle the nonce words as described.  When, after pollRep,
   the final response from the CA arrives at the LRA, the next response
   will contain the recipientNonce set to the value of the senderNonce
   in the original request message (copied by the CA).  The LRA needs to
   replace the recipientNonce in this case with the senderNonce of the
   last pollReq because the EE will validate it in this way.

5.2.  Revoking a certificate

   This message sequence should be used by an entity to request the
   revocation of a certificate.  Here the revocation request is used by
   an EE to revoke one of its own certificates.  A (L)RA could also act
   as an EE to revoke one of its own certificates.

   The revocation request message MUST be signed using the certificate
   that is to be revoked to prove the authorization to revoke to the
   PKI.  The revocation request message is signature-protected using
   this certificate.

   An EE requests the revocation of an own certificate at the CA that
   issued this certificate.  The (L)RA/CA responds with a message that
   contains the status of the revocation from the CA.

   Preconditions:

   1  The certificate the EE wishes to revoke is not yet expired or
      revoked.

   For this profile, the EE MUST include exactly one RevDetails
   structure in the rr.  In case no error occurred the response to the
   rr MUST be an rp message.  The (L)RA/CA MUST produce a rp containing
   a status field with a single set of values.

5.3.  Error reporting

   This functionality should be used by an EE to report any error
   conditions upstream to the (L)RA/CA.  Error reporting by the (L)RA
   downstream to the EE is described in Section 6.3.

   In case the error condition is related to specific details of an ip,
   cp, or kup response message and a confirmation is expected the error
   condition MUST be reported in the respective certConf message with
   negative contents.

   General error conditions, e.g., problems with the message header,
   protection, or extraCerts, and negative feedback on rp, pollRep, or
   pkiConf messages MAY be reported in the form of an error message.

   In both situations the error is reported in the PKIStatusInfo
   structure of the respective message.

   The (L)RA/CA MUST respond to an error message with a pkiConf message,
   or with another error message if any part of the header is not valid.
   Both sides MUST treat this message as the end of the current
   transaction.

   The PKIStatusInfo structure is used to report errors.  The
   PKIStatusInfo structure SHOULD consist of the following fields:

   o  status: Here the PKIStatus value rejection is the only one
      allowed.

   o  statusString: Here any human-readable valid value for logging or
      to display in a GUI SHOULD be added.

   o  failInfo: Here the PKIFailureInfo values MAY be used in the
      following way.  For explanation of the reason behind a specific
      value, please refer to [RFC4210] Appendix F.

      *  transactionIdInUse: This is sent in case the received request
         contains a transaction ID that is already in use for another
         transaction.  An EE receiving such error message SHOULD resend
         the request in a new transaction using a different transaction
         ID.

      *  systemUnavail or systemFailure: This is sent in case a back-end
         system is not available or currently not functioning correctly.
         An EE receiving such error message SHOULD resend the request in
         a new transaction after some time.

5.4.  Support messages

   The following support messages offer on demand in-band transport of
   content that may be provided by the (L)RA/CA and relevant to the EE.
   The general messages and general response are used for this purpose.
   Depending on the environment, these requests are answered by the LRA,
   RA, or CA.

   The general message and general response transport InfoTypeAndValue
   structures.  In addition to those infoType values defined in CMP
   [RFC4210] further OIDs MAY be defined to define new PKI management
   operations, or general-purpose messages as needed in a specific
   environment.

   Possible content described here address:

   o  Request of CA certificates

   o  Update of Root CA certificates

5.4.2.  Get CA certiificates

   This scheme can be used by an EE to request CA certificates from the
   (L)RA/CA.

   An EE requests CA certificates from the (L)RA/CA by sending a general
   message with OID id-it-getCaCerts.  The (L)RA/CA responds with a
   general response with the same OID that either contains a SEQUENCE of
   certificates populated with the available CA intermediate and issuing
   CA certificates or with no content in case no CA certificate is
   available.

   < NOTE: The OID id-it-getCaCerts is not yet defined.  It should be
   registered in the tree 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.4 (id-it) like other infoType
   OIDs, see CMP Appendix F [RFC4210] on page 92. >

       -- MUST be absent if no CA certificate is available
       -- MUST be present if CA certificates are available

       -- MUST be present if infoValue is present
       -- MUST be a sequence of CMPCertificate

5.4.3.  Get root CA certificate update

   This scheme can be used by an EE to request an update of an existing
   root CA Certificate by the EE.  It utilizes the root CA key update
   announcement message as described in CMP Appendix E.4 [RFC4210] as
   response to a respective general message.

   An EE requests a root CA certificate update from the (L)RA/CA by
   sending a general message with OID id-it-caKeyUpdateInfo.  The (L)RA/
   CA responds with a general response with the same OID that either
   contains the update of the root CA certificate consisting of three
   certificates, or with no content in case no update is available.
   These three certificates are described in more detail in section
   4.4.1, section 6.2, and Appendix E.3 of [RFC4210].

   The profile for this exchange is as given in Section 5.4.1, with the
   following specific content:

       -- MUST contain the new root CA certificate

5.4.4.  Get certificate request parameters

   This scheme can be used by an EE to request configuration parameters
   for a planned certificate request transaction.

   An EE requests certificate request parameters from the (L)RA/CA by
   sending a general message with OID id-it-getCSRParam.  The (L)RA/CA
   responds with a general response with the same OID that either
   contains the required fields, e.g., algorithm identifier for key pair
   generation or other attributes and extensions or with no content in
   case no specific requirements are made by the (L)RA/CA.

   < NOTE: The OID id-it-getCSRParam is not yet defined.  It should be
   registered in the tree 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.4 (id-it) like other infoType
   OIDs, see CMP Appendix F [RFC4210] on page 92. >

   The EE SHOULD follow the requirements from the recieved CertTemplate
   and the optional RSA key length.  In case a field is present but the
   value is absent, it means that this field is required but its content
   has to be provided by the EE.

       -- SHOULD be specified if the algorithm in the
       -- subjectPublicKeyInfo field of the certTemplate is of type

5.4.5.  Get certificate management configuration

   This scheme can be used by an EE to request the current certificate
   management configuration information by the EE in advance to a
   planned certificate management transaction, e.g., in case no out-of-
   band transport is available.  Such certificate management
   configuration can consist of all information the EE needs to know to
   generate and deliver a proper certificate request, such as

   o  algorithm, curve, and key length for key generation

   o  various certificate extensions to be used for the certificate
      request

   o  specific host name, port and path on the RA/LRA to send this CMP
      request to

   o  Infrastructure Root CA Certificate, e.g., the root of the (L)RA
      TLS and CMP signer certificates.

   There is an overlap with Section 5.4.2 with regard to transport of CA
   certificates and with Section 5.4.4 with regard to key generation
   parameter and certificate request attributes and extensions.  This
   profile offers to request a proprietary configuration file containing
   all information needed in one exchange.

   An EE requests certificate management configuration from the (L)RA/CA
   by sending a general message with the OID id-it-getCertMgtConfig.
   The (L)RA/CA responds with a general response with the same OID that
   either contains a certMgtConfig field containing the configuration
   file encoded as OCTET STRING or with no content in case no
   certificate management configuration is available.

   < NOTE: The OID id-it-getCertMgtConfig is not yet defined.  It should
   be registered in the tree 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.4 (id-it) like other infoType
   OIDs, see CMP Appendix F [RFC4210] on page 92. >

   The EE SHOULD use the contents of this certMgtConfig to format and
   deliver the certificate request.  The certificate management
   configuration may contain contact details, e.g., like an URI and
   issuing CA distinguished name, where to address the request messages
   to and may also contain certificate request parameters as described
   in Section 5.4.4.

   The certMgtConfig field may be of any format suitable for the EE,
   e.g., CMS [RFC5652], JWT [RFC7519] or, XML [W3C_XML].  The
   certMgtConfig contents MAY be signed, e.g., like CMS SignedData
   [RFC5652], JWS [RFC7515] or, XML-DSig [W3C_XML-Dsig].  For
   interoperability the format of the certMgtConfig field should be
   specified in detail if needed.

   The profile for this exchange is as given in Section 5.4.1, with the
   following specific content:

   1  the body MUST contain as infoType the OID id-it-getCertMgtConfig

   2  the infoValue of the request MUST be absent

   3  if present, the infoValue of the response MUST be a certMgtConfig
      structure

   The infoValue field of the general response containing the id-it-
   getCertMgtConfig extension looks like this:

         infoValue               OPTIONAL
       -- MUST be absent if no certificate management configuration
       -- is available
       -- MUST be present if the (L)RA/CA provides any certificate
       -- management configuration
           certMgtConfig         REQUIRED
       -- MUST be present if infoValue is present
       -- MUST contain the certificate management configuration as OCTET
       -- OCTET STRING

5.4.6.  Get enrollment voucher

   This scheme can be used by an EE to request an enrollment voucher
   containing the root certificate of a new, additional, or alternative
   PKI to establish trust in this PKI, e.g., in case no out-of-band
   transport is available.  Such an enrollment voucher can be used in
   advance to an enrollment to this new environment.  It may contain
   further information depending on the use case.

   An EE requests an enrollment voucher from the (L)RA/CA by sending a
   general message.  The (L)RA/CA responds with a general response with
   the same OID that either contains the voucher or with no content in
   case no voucher is available.

   The (L)RA MAY use the content of the voucherRequest to get an
   enrollment voucher from other backend components, e.g., as described
   in BRSKI [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra].  The EE SHOULD use
   the contents of the received enrollmentVoucher to authenticate the
   (L)RA/CA it is about to enroll to.  The enrollment voucher may for
   example contain the Root CA certificate of the new PKI or the CMP
   signer certificate of the (L)RA.  The general response message MUST
   be properly authenticated and the sender of this message MUST be
   authorized to install new root certificates.  One example for an
   enrollment voucher is specified in RFC8366 [RFC8366].

   The voucherRequest and enrollmentVoucher fields may be of any format
   suitable for the EE, e.g., CMS [RFC5652], JWT [RFC7519] or, XML
   [W3C_XML].  The voucherRequest and enrollmentVoucher contents MAY
   contain a signature, e.g., CMS SignedData [RFC5652], JWS [RFC7515]
   or, XML-DSig [W3C_XML-Dsig].  For interoperability the format of the
   voucherRequest and enrollmentVoucher field schould be specified in
   detail if needed, e.g., as defined in BRSKI
   [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] and RFC8366 [RFC8366].

   < TBD: The vontent of the voucherRequest and enrollmentVoucher fields
   can also be linited to the specufucations in BRSKI
   [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] and RFC8366 [RFC8366]. >

   The profile for this exchange is as given in Section 5.4.1, with the
   following specific content:

   1  the body MUST contain as infoType the OID id-it-
      getEnrollmentVoucher

6.  LRA and RA focused certificate management use cases

   This chapter focuses on the communication of PKI backend components
   with each other.  Depending on the network and PKI solution design,
   these will either be an LRA, RA or CA.

   Typically, an (L)RA forwards messages from downstream, but it may
   also reply to them itself.  Besides forwarding of received messages
   an (L)RA could also need to revoke certificates of EEs, report
   errors, or may need to manage its own certificates.

   < In CMP Updates [I-D.brockhaus-lamps-cmp-updates] additional
   extended key usages like id-kp-cmpRA will be defined to indicate that
   a key pair is entitled to be used for signature-based protection of a
   CMP message by an (L)RA/CA. >

6.1.  Forwarding of messages

   Each CMP request message (i.e., ir, cr, p10cr, kur, pollReq, or
   certConf) or error message coming from an EE or the previous
   (downstream) PKI component MUST be sent to the next (upstream) PKI
   component.  This PKI component MUST forward response messages to the
   next (downstream) PKI component or EE.




Brockhaus, et al.          Expires May 6, 2020                 [Page 53]


Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   The (L)RA SHOULD verify the protection, the syntax, the required
   message fields, the message type, and if applicable the authorization
   and the proof-of-possession of the message.  Additional checks or
   actions MAY be applied depending on the PKI solution requirements and
   concept.  If one of these verification procedures fails, the (L)RA
   SHOULD respond with a negative response message and SHOULD not
   forward the message further upstream.  General error conditions
   should be handled as described in Section 5.3 and Section 6.3.

   An (L)RA SHOULD not change the received message if not necessary.
   The (L)RA SHOULD only update the message protection if it is
   technically necessary.  Concrete PKI system specifications may define
   in more detail if and when to do so.

   This is particularly relevant in the upstream communication of a
   request message.

   Each hop in a chain of PKI components has one or more
   functionalities, e.g.,

   o  An (L)RA may need to verify the identities of EEs or base
      authorization decisions for certification request processing on
      specific knowledge of the local setup, e.g., by consulting an
      inventory or asset management system.

   o  An (L)RA may need to add fields to certificate request messages.

   o  An (L)RA may need to store data from a message in a database for
      later usage or documentation purposes.

   o  An (L)RA may provide traversal of a network boundary.

   o  An (L)RA may need to double-check if the messages transferred back
      and forth are properly protected and well formed.

   o  An RA can collect messages from different LRAs and forward them to
      the CA.

   o  An (L)RA may provide a proof that it has performed all required
      checks.

   o  An (L)RA may initiate a delayed enrollment due to offline upstream
      communication or registration officer interaction.

   o  An (L)RA may grant the request of an EE to omit sending a
      confirmation message.

   Therefore, the decision if a message should be forwarded

   o  unchanged with the original protection,

   o  unchanged with a new protection, or

   o  changed with a new protection

   depends on the PKI solution design and the associated security policy
   (CP/CPS [RFC3647]).

   This section specifies the different options an (L)RA may implement
   and use.

   An (L)RA MAY update the protection of a message

   o  if the (L)RA performs changes to the header or the body of the
      message,

   o  if the (L)RA needs to prove checks or validations performed on the
      message to one of the next (upstream) PKI components,

   o  if the (L)RA needs to protect the message using a key and
      certificate from a different PKI, or

   o  if the (L)RA needs to replace a MAC based-protection.

   This is particularly relevant in the upstream communication of
   certificate request messages.

   The message protection covers only the header and the body and not
   the extraCerts.  The (L)RA MAY change the extraCerts in any of the
   following message adaptations, e.g., to sort or add needed or to
   delete needless certificates to support the next hop.  This may be
   particularly helpful to extend upstream messages with additional
   certificates or to reduce the number of certificates in downstream
   messages when forwarding to constrained devices.

6.1.1.  Not changing protection

   This message adaptation can be used by any (L)RA to forward an
   original CMP message without changing the header, body or protection.
   In any of these cases the (L)RA acts more like a proxy, e.g., on a
   network boundary, implementing no specific RA-like security
   functionality to the PKI.

   This message adaptation MUST be used for forwarding kur messages that
   must not be approved by the respective (L)RA.

Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


6.1.2.  Replacing protection

   The following two message adaptations can be used by any (L)RA to
   forward a CMP message with or without changes, but providing its own
   protection using its CMP signer key providing approval of this
   message.  In this case the (L)RA acts as an actual Registration
   Authority (RA), which implements important security functionality of
   the PKI.

   Before replacing the existing protection by a new protection, the
   (L)RA MUST verify the protection provided by the EE or by the
   previous PKI component and approve its content including any own
   modifications.  For certificate requests the (L)RA MUST verify in
   particular the included proof-of-possession self-signature of the
   certTemplate using the public key of the requested certificate and
   MUST check that the EE, as authenticated by the message protection,
   is authorized to request a certificate with the subject as specified
   in the certTemplate.

   In case the received message has been protected by a CA or another
   (L)RA, the current (L)RA MUST verify its protection and approve its
   content including any own modifications.  For certificate requests
   the (L)RA MUST check that the other (L)RA, as authenticated by the
   message protection, is authorized to issue or forward the request.

   These message adaptations MUST NOT be applied to kur request messages
   as described in Section 5.1.3 since their original protection using
   the key and certificate to be updated needs to be preserved, unless
   the regCtrl OldCertId is used to clearly identify the certificate to
   be updated.

6.1.2.1.  Keeping proof-of-possession

   This message adaptation can be used by any (L)RA to forward a CMP
   message with or without modifying the message header or body while
   preserving any included proof-of-possession.

   By replacing the existing using its own CMP signer key the (L)RA
   provides a proof of verifying and approving of the message as
   described above.

   In case the (L)RA modifies the certTemplate of an ir or cr message,
   the message adaptation in Section 6.1.2.2 needs to be applied
   instead.

Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


6.1.2.2.  Breaking proof-of-possession

   This message adaptation can be used by any (L)RA to forward an ir or
   cr message with modifications of the certTemplate i.e., modification,
   addition, or removal of fields.  Such changes will break the proof-
   of-possession provided by the EE in the original message.

   By replacing the existing or applying an initial protection using its
   own CMP signer key the (L)RA provides a proof of verifying and
   approving the new message as described above.

   In addition to the above the (L)RA MUST verify in particular the
   proof-of-possession contained in the original message as described
   above.  If these checks were successfully performed the (L)RA MUST
   change the popo to raVerified.

   The popo field MUST contain the raVerified choice in the certReq
   structure of the modified message as follows:

       popo
         raVerified              REQUIRED
       -- MUST have the value NULL and indicates that the (L)RA
       -- verified the popo of the original message.

6.1.3.  Initiating delayed enrollment

   This message adaptation can be used by an (L)RA to initiate delayed
   enrollment.  In this case a (L)RA/CA MUST add the status waiting in
   the response message.  The (L)RA/CA MUST then reply to the pollReq
   messages as described in Section 5.1.7.

6.2.  Revoking certificates on behalf of another's entities

   This message sequence can be used by an (L)RA to revoke a certificate
   of any other entity.  This revocation request message MUST be signed
   by the (L)RA using its own CMP signer key to prove to the PKI
   authorization to revoke the certificate on behalf of the EE.

   The general message flow for this profile is the same as given in
   section Section 5.2.

   Preconditions:

   1  the certificate to be revoked MUST be known to the (L)RA

   2  the (L)RA MUST have the authorization to revoke the certificates
      of other entities issued by the corresponding CA

Internet-Draft           Lightweight CMP Profile           November 2019


   The profile for this exchange is identical to that given in section
   Section 5.2, with the following changes:

   1  it is not required that the certificate to be revoked is not yet
      expired or revoked

   2  the (L)RA acts as EE for this message exchange

   3  the rr messages MUST be signed using the CMP signer key of the
      (L)RA.

6.3.  Error reporting

   This functionality should be used by the (L)RA to report any error
   conditions downstream to the EE.  Potential error reporting by the EE
   upstream to the (L)RA/CA is described in Section 5.3.

   In case the error condition is related to specific details of an ir,
   cr, p10cr, or kur request message it MUST be reported in the specific
   response message, i.e., an ip, cp, or kup with negative contents.

   General error conditions, e.g., problems with the message header,
   protection, or extraCerts, and negative feedback on rr, pollReq,
   certConf, or error messages MUST be reported in the form of an error
   message.

   In both situations the (L)RA reports the errors in the PKIStatusInfo
   structure of the respective message as described in Section 5.3.

   An EE receiving any such negative feedback SHOULD log the error
   appropriately and MUST terminate the current transaction.

7.  CMP message transport variants

   The CMP messages are designed to be self-contained, such that in
   principle any transport can be used.  HTTP SHOULD be used for online
   transport while file-based transport MAY be used in case offline
   transport is required.  In case HTTP transport is not desired or
   possible, CMP messages MAY also be piggybacked on any other reliable
   transport protocol, e.g., CoAP [RFC7252].

   Independently of the means of transport it could happen that messages
   are lost, or a communication partner does not respond.  In order to
   prevent waiting indefinitely, each CMP client component SHOULD use a
   configurable per-request timeout, and each CMP server component
   SHOULD use a configurable per-response timeout in case a further
   message is to be expected from the client side.  In this way a

   hanging transaction can be closed cleanly with an error and related
   resources (for instance, any cached extraCerts) can be freed.

7.1.  HTTP transport

   This transport mechanism can be used by an EE and (L)RA/CA to
   transfer CMP messages over HTTP.  If HTTP transport is used the
   specifications as described in [RFC6712] MUST be followed.

7.2.  HTTPS transport using certificates

   This transport mechanism can be used by an EE and (L)RA/CA to further
   protect the HTTP transport as described in Section 7.1 using TLS 1.2
   [RFC5246] or TLS 1.3 [RFC8446] as described in [RFC2818] with
   certificate-based authentication.  Using this transport mechanism,
   the CMP transport via HTTPS MUST use TLS server authentication and
   SHOULD use TLS client authentication.

   EE:

   o  The EE SHOULD use a TLS client certificate as far as available.
      If no dedicated TLS certificate is available the EE SHOULD use an
      already existing certificate identifying the EE (e.g., a
      manufacturer certificate).

   o  If no TLS certificate is available at the EE, server-only
      authenticated TLS SHOULD be used.

   o  The EE MUST validate the TLS server certificate of its
      communication partner.

   (L)RA:

   o  Each (L)RA SHOULD use a TLS client certificate on its upstream
      (client) interface.

   o  Each (L)RA SHOULD use a TLS server certificate on its downstream
      (server) interface.

   o  Each (L)RA MUST validate the TLS certificate of its communication
      partner.

   NOTE: The requirements for checking certificates given in [RFC5280],
   [RFC5246] and [RFC8446] MUST be followed for the TLS layer.  OCSP or
   CRLs SHOULD be used for status checking of the TLS certificates of
   communication partners.

7.3.  HTTPS transport using shared secrets

   This transport mechanism can be used by an EE and (L)RA/CA to further
   protect the HTTP transport as described in Section 7.1 using TLS 1.2
   [RFC5246] or TLS 1.3 [RFC8446] as described in [RFC2818] with mutual
   authentication based on shared secrets as described in [RFC5054].

   EE:

   o  The EE MUST use the shared symmetric key for authentication.

   (L)RA:

   o  The (L)RA MUST use the shared symmetric key for authentication.

7.4.  File-based transport

   For offline transfer file-based transport MAY be used.  Offline
   transport is typically used between LRA and RA nodes.

   Connection and error handling mechanisms like those specified for
   HTTP in [RFC6712] need to be implemented.

   < Details need to be defined later >

7.5.  CoAP transport

   In constrained environments where no HTTP transport is desired or
   possible, CoAP [RFC7252] MAY be used instead.  Connection and error
   handling mechanisms like those specified for HTTP in [RFC6712] may
   need to be implemented.

   Such specification is out of scope of this document and would need to
   be specifies in a separate document.

7.6.  Piggybacking on other reliable transport

   For online transfer where no HTTP transport is desired or possible
   CMP messages MAY also be transported on some other reliable protocol.
   Connection and error handling mechanisms like those specified for
   HTTP in [RFC6712] need to be implemented.

   Such specification is out of scope of this document and would need to
   be specifies in a separate document, e.g., in the scope of the
   respective transport protocol used.
