              Dynamic Allocation of Shared IPv4 Addresses
              draft-csf-dhc-dynamic-shared-v4allocation-00

Abstract

   This memo describes the dynamic allocation of shared IPv4 addresses
   to clients using the DHCPv4 protocol.  Address sharing allows a
   single IPv4 address to be allocated to multiple, active clients
   simultaneously, each client being differentiated by a unique set of
   L4 source ports.  The changes necessary to existing DHCPv4 client and
   server behaviour are described and a new DHCPv4 option for
   provisioning clients with shared IPv4 addresses is included.

   Due to the nature of sharing IP addresses, there are necessarily some
   limitations to the applicability.  This memo describes those
   limitations and recommends suitable architectures and technologies
   where address sharing may be utilized.

Internet-Draft       Dynamic Shared IPv4 Allocation        February 2014


1.  Introduction

   Shortages of available public IPv4 addresses mean that it is not
   always possible for operators to allocate a full IPv4 address to
   every customer.  This problem may be particularly acute whilst the
   operator is in the migration phase from a native IPv4 network to a
   native IPv6 network with IPv4 provided as an overlay service.  This
   is likely to increase the requirement on public IPv4 addresses to
   provide for both existing and transition networks.

   Two main types of solution have emerged to ease the problem:

   1.  Centralised Network Address Translation (NAT44) in the core
       network
   2.  Distributing the same public IPv4 address to multiple clients
       using non-overlapping layer 4 port sets.

   The solution described in this memo is only suitable on the second
   solution.

   [I-D.ietf-dhc-dhcpv4-over-dhcpv6] introduces a "DHCP 4o6 Server",
   which is capable of servicing both DHCPv6 [RFC3315] and DHCPv4-over-
   DHCPv6 requests.  This enables the provisioning of DHCPv4 based
   configuration to IPv6 connected clients over IPv6 only transport
   networks.

   One of the benefits of the DHCPv4-over-DHCPv6 based approach is that
   it allows the dynamic leasing of IPv4 addresses to clients, based on
   existing mechanisms for address lease management available in DHCPv4
   servers.  This can make much more efficient use of remaining public
   IPv4 addresses than static pre-allocation based approaches as only
   IPv4 clients that are currently active need to be allocated
   addresses.  This memo uses the defined OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 with
   DHCPv4 over DHCPv6, achieving the dynamic leasing of the shared IPv4
   addresses.

   Due to the nature of address sharing in this manner, it is only
   suitable for specific architectures based on the Address plus Port
   Model (A+P) [RFC6346].  This model extends the unique identifier for
   a client from the 32-bit IPv4 address to 48-bits by including the
   16-bits of the layer 4 header.  Each client is allocated a unique
   block of layer 4 ports, and the client will generally utilize these
   restricted source ports by implementing a NAPT44 funtion, translating
   traffic from the original private IPv4 source address and
   unrestricted port to the allocated shared IPv4 address and unique
   restricted port range.  [I-D.ietf-softwire-map] and
   [I-D.ietf-softwire-lw4over6] describe two implemented examples of the

Internet-Draft       Dynamic Shared IPv4 Allocation        February 2014


   A+P approach which may be suitable for shared, dynamic IPv4
   addressing.

   The use of shared addressing in other, more traditional deployment
   architectures must be avoided due to the fundamental
   incompatibilities of assigning a the same /32 IPv4 address to
   multiple clients attached to the same layer 2 segment.

   This memo also defines OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4, a DHCPv4 option for
   assigning non-overlapping layer 4 port sets during the IPv4 address
   allocation process.

   Although DHCPv4 over DHCPv6 is used as the underlying DHCPv4
   transport mechanism throughout this document, OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 may
   also be used in DHCPv4 over IPv6 [I-D.ietf-dhc-dhcpv4-over-ipv6] and
   other DHCPv4 IPv4 address allocation mechanisms.  The usage of
   OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 in those cases is out of scope of this document.

2.  Functional Overview

   Functionally, the dynamic allocation of shared IPv4 addresses by the
   DHCP 4o6 Server is quite similar to the normal DHCPv4 server dynamic
   allocation process described in [RFC2131].  The essential difference
   is that the DHCP 4o6 Server MAY allocate the same IPv4 address to
   more than one DHCP 4o6 client simultaneously, providing that each
   address allocation also includes a range of layer 4 source ports
   unique to that address (i.e. each PSID may only be allocated once per
   /32 address).

   To enable this, the DHCP 4o6 client needs to be extended to implement
   OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 (described below).  This option is used to
   indicate to the DHCP 4o6 server the client's support the dynamic
   allocation of a shared IPv4 address and also for conveying the
   allocated PSID back to the client.

   The server must be extended to implement OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 so that
   it can identify clients supporting shared, dynamic address leasing.
   With this option, the server can dynamically maintain shared IPv4
   address leases.  The server must also manage unique client leases
   based on the IPv4 address and PSID tuple, instead of just IPv4
   address.

3.  Client-Server Interaction

   Section 3 of [RFC2131] describes client-server interactions necessary
   for leasing addresses.  The following sections describe the changes
   necessary for the client and server to implement the dynamic
   allocation of a shared IPv4 address.

Internet-Draft       Dynamic Shared IPv4 Allocation        February 2014


3.1.  Allocating a Shared, Dynamic IPv4 Address

   Section 3.1 of [RFC2131] describes the client-server interaction for
   allocating an IPv4 address.  The process described below detail the
   changes necessary for the allocation of a shared IPv4 address.

   Using DHCP 4o6, the following DHCPv4 message flow is transported
   within the DHCPV4-QUERY and DHCPV4-RESPONSE options, which are DHCPv6
   options used for carrying DHCPv4 messages.

   1.  When the client constructs its DHCPv4 DHCPDISCOVER message to be
       transported within the DHCPv4-query message, the DHCPDISCOVER
       message MUST include the following options: A client Identifier
       (constructed as per [RFC4361] and OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 (described
       below).  The client MAY insert a non-zero value in the PSID-Len
       field within OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 to indicate the preferred size
       of the restricted port range allocation to the DHCP 4o6 Server.
   2.  Each DHCP 4o6 Server that receives the DHCPDISCOVER message
       within the DHCPv4-query message responds with a DHCPOFFER message
       that contains an available IPv4 address in the 'yiaddr' field.
       The response MUST also include OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 containing a
       restricted port-range.  If the received OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 field
       contains a non-zero PSID-Len field, the DHCP 4o6 Server MAY
       allocate a port set of the requested size to the client
       (depending on policy).  The DHCPOFFER message is included into
       the DHCPv4-response message and sent to the client.
   3.  The client evaluates all received DHCPOFFER messages and selects
       one based on the configuration parameters received, such as the
       size of the offered port set.  The client then sends a
       DHCPREQUEST containing a server identifier and the corresponding
       OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 received in the DHCPOFFER message.
   4.  The server identified in the DHCPREQUEST message (via the siaddr
       field) creates a binding for the client.  The binding includes
       the client identifier, the IPv4 address and the PSID.  These
       parameters are used by both the server and the client to identify
       a lease referred to in any DHCP messages.  The server responds
       with a DHCPACK message containing the configuration parameters
       for the requesting client.  Optionally, the the server may also
       store the IPv6 address that the client has bound the received
       IPv4 paramters to.
   5.  The client receives the DHCPACK message with the configuration
       parameters.  The client MUST NOT perform a final check on the
       address, such as ARPing for a duplicate allocated address.
   6.  If the client chooses to relinquish its lease by sending a
       DHCPRELEASE message, the client MUST include the original client
       identifier, the leased network address and the allocated
       restricted source ports inlcuded in OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4.

3.2.  Reusing a Previously Allocated Shared, Dynamic IPv4 address

   If the client remembers the previously allocated address and
   restricted port range, then the process described in section 3.2 of
   [RFC2131] must be followed.  OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 MUST be included in
   the message flow, with the client's requested port set being included
   in the DHCPDISCOVER message.

4.  Server Behavior

   The DHCP 4o6 Server MUST NOT reply with the OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 until
   the client has explicitly listed the option code in the Parameter
   Request List (Option 55) [RFC2132].

   The DHCP 4o6 Server SHOULD reply with OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 if the
   client includes the option in its Parameter Request List.  In order
   to achieve the dynamic management of IPv4 address and port set in the
   address sharing environment, the server MUST run an address and port-
   set pool that plays the same role as address pool in a regular DHCP
   server.  The server MUST use the combination of address and PSID as
   the key to maintain the state of a lease, and look for an available
   lease for assignment.  The leasing database MUST include the
   information of the address and PSID.

   When a server receives a DHCPDISCOVER message with
   OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 in the Parameter Request List from a client, the
   server chooses an IPv4 address and a port-set for the requesting
   client.  The logic of choosing is similar to that in Section 4.3.1 of
   [RFC2131].  The difference is the server looks for the client's
   binding or an available lease in the server's pool of addresses and
   PSIDs.  After selecting an available IPv4 address with a PSID, the
   server sends a DHCPOFFER message to the requesting client.

   When the server receives a DHCPREQUEST message with
   OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4, the server MUST determine the client's state
   according to related parameters (Section 4.3.2 of [RFC2131]) and the
   value of OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4.

   Upon reception of a DHCPRELEASE message with OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4, the
   server looks for the lease using the address in the message and the
   PSID value in the OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4, and marks it as unallocated.

   The port-set assignment MUST be coupled with the address assignment
   process.  Therefore server MUST assign the address and port set in
   the same DHCP messages.  The lease information for the address is
   applicable to the port-set as well.

Internet-Draft       Dynamic Shared IPv4 Allocation        February 2014


4.1.  Leasing Shared and Non-Shared IPv4 Addresses from a Single DHCP
      4o6 Server

   A single DHCP 4o6 server may have clients that do not support
   OPTION_PORTPARAMS as well as those that do.  As the rules for the
   allocation of shared addresses differ from the rules for full IPv4
   address assigment, the DHCP 4o6 server MUST implement a mechanism to
   ensure that clients which do not support OPTION_PORTPARAMS do not
   receive shared addresses.  For example two separate IPv4 addressing
   pools could be used, one of which allocates IPv4 addresses and PSIDs
   only to clients which have requested them.

5.  Client Behavior

   The DHCP client applying for a port-set MUST include the
   OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 code in the Parameter Request List (Option 55).
   The client retrieves a port set using the value contained in
   OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4.

   When the client renews or releases the DHCP lease, it MUST put the
   values of offset, PSID length and PSID into the OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4,
   and send to the server within corresponding DHCPv4 messages.

   In the DHCPDISCOVER message, the client MAY use a non-zero value for
   the PSID-len field within OPTION_PORTPARMAS.  This is used by the
   client to request a specific size of port-set (i.e. the number of
   source ports that it will be allocated).

5.1.  Client Usage of a Shared Address

   As a single IPv4 address is being shared between a number of
   different clients, the allocated shared address is only suitable for
   certain uses.  The client MUST implement a function to ensure that
   only the allocated layer 4 ports of the shared IPv4 address are used
   for sourcing new connections.

   The client MUST apply the following rules for any traffic to or from
   the shared /32 IPv4 address:

   o  Only port-aware protocols or ICMP implementing [RFC5508] MUST be
      used
   o  All connections originating from the shared IPv4 address MUST use
      a source port taken from the allocated restricted port range.
   o  The client MUST NOT accept inbound connections on ports outside of
      the allocated restricted port range.

Internet-Draft       Dynamic Shared IPv4 Allocation        February 2014


   In order to prevent addressing conflicts which could arise from the
   allocation of the same IPv4 addreses, the client MUST NOT configure
   the received restricted IPv4 address on-link.

   The mechanism by which a client implements these rules is outside of
   the scope of this document.

   In the event that the DHCPv4 over DHCPv6 configuration mechanism
   fails for any reason, the client MUST NOT configure an IPv4 link-
   local address [RFC3927](taken from the 169.254.0.0/16 range).

6.  Additional Changes to RFC 2131

   In addtion to the changes mentioned elsewhere in this document, the
   following changes to the behaviour described in [RFC2131] are
   necessary in order to implement dynamic allocation of a shared IPv4
   address.

   Section 2.2  The client MUST NOT probe a newly received IPv4 address
                (e.g. with ARP) to see if it is in use by another host.
   Section 3.1 Item 5.  The client MUST NOT perform a final check on the
                assigned IPv4 address.

7.  DHCPv4 Port Parameters Option

   The Port Paramaters Option for DHCPv4 specifies the restricted set of
   layer 4 source ports that are necessary to dynamically allocate a
   shared address.  The option uses the same fields as the MAP Port
   Parameters Option described in Section 4.4 of
   [I-D.ietf-softwire-map-dhcp], implemented as a DHCPv4 option.  This
   is to maintain compatibility with existing implementations.

   The construction and usage of OPTION_PORTPARAMSV4 is

   o  offset: (PSID offset) 8 bits long field that specifies the numeric
      value for the MAP algorithm's excluded port range/offset bits
      (A-bits), as per section 5.1.1 in [I-D.ietf-softwire-map].
      Allowed values are between 0 and 16, with the default value being
      4 for a MAP client.  This parameter is unused by a Lightweight
      4over6 client and should be set to 0.
   o  PSID-len: Bit length value of the number of significant bits in
      the PSID field (also known as 'k').  When set to 0, the PSID field
      is to be ignored.  After the first 'a' bits, there are k bits in
      the port number representing valid of PSID.  Subsequently, the
      address sharing ratio would be 2^k.
   o  PSID: Explicit 16-bit (unsigned word) PSID value.  The PSID value
      algorithmically identifies a set of ports assigned to a CE.  The
      first k-bits on the left of this 2-octets field is the PSID value.
      The remaining (16-k) bits on the right are padding zeros.

   [I-D.ietf-softwire-map] (Section 5.1) provides a full description of
   how the PSID is interpreted by the client.

   When receiveing the Port Parameters option with an explicit PSID, the
   client MUST use this explicit PSID in configuring its DHCPv4 over
   DHCPv6 interface.

8.  Security Consideration

8.1.  Denial-of-Service

   The solution is generally vulnerable to DoS when used on a shared
   medium or when access network authentication is not a prerequisite to
   IP address assignment.  The solution SHOULD only be used on point-to-
   point links, tunnels, and/or in environments where authentication at
   link layer is performed before IP address assignment, and not shared
   medium.

8.2.  Port Randomization

   Preserving port randomization [RFC6056] may be more or less difficult
   depending on the address sharing ratio (i.e., the size of the port
   space assigned to a CPE).  The host can only randomize the ports
   inside a fixed port range [RFC6269].

   More discussion to improve the robustness of TCP against Blind In-
   Window Attacks can be found at [RFC5961].  Other means than the
   (IPv4) source port randomization to provide protection against
   attacks should be used (e.g., use [I-D.vixie-dnsext-dns0x20] to
   protect against DNS attacks, [RFC5961] to improve the robustness of
   TCP against Blind In-Window Attacks, use IPv6).
