1.  Introduction

   Master-Slave/Token-Passing (MS/TP) is a medium access control (MAC)
   protocol for the RS-485 [TIA-485-A] physical layer, which is used
   extensively in building automation networks.  This specification
   defines the frame format for transmission of IPv6 [RFC2460] packets
   and the method of forming link-local and statelessly autoconfigured
   IPv6 addresses on MS/TP networks.  The general approach is to adapt
   elements of the 6LoWPAN specifications [RFC4944], [RFC6282], and
   [RFC6775], where noted, to constrained wired networks.

   An MS/TP device is typically based on a low-cost microcontroller with
   limited processing power and memory.  Together with low data rates
   and a small MAC address space, these constraints are similar to those
   faced in 6LoWPAN networks and suggest some elements of that solution
   might be leveraged.  MS/TP differs significantly from 6LoWPAN in at
   least three respects: a) MS/TP devices typically have a continuous
   source of power, b) all MS/TP devices on a segment can communicate
   directly so there are no hidden node or mesh routing issues, and c)
   recent changes to MS/TP provide support for larger payloads,

   eliminating the need for fragmentation and reassembly below IPv6.

   The following sections provide a brief overview of MS/TP, then
   describe how to form IPv6 addresses and encapsulate IPv6 packets in
   MS/TP frames.  This document also specifies a header compression
   mechanism, based on [RFC6282], that is REQUIRED in order to reduce
   latency and make IPv6 practical on MS/TP networks.

   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].

1.3.  MS/TP Overview

   This section provides a brief overview of MS/TP, which is specified
   in ANSI/ASHRAE 135-2012 (BACnet) Clause 9 [Clause9] and included
   herein by reference.  BACnet [Clause9] also covers physical layer
   deployment options.

   MS/TP is designed to enable multidrop networks over shielded twisted
   pair wiring.  It can support network segments up to 1000 meters in
   length at a data rate of 115,200 bit/s, or segments up to 1200 meters
   in length at lower bit rates.  An MS/TP link requires only a UART, an
   RS-485 [TIA-485-A] transceiver with a driver that can be disabled,
   and a 5 ms resolution timer.  These features make MS/TP a cost-
   effective field bus for the most numerous and least expensive devices
   in a building automation network.

Internet-Draft               IPv6 over MS/TP                October 2016


   The differential signaling used by [TIA-485-A] requires a contention-
   free MAC.  MS/TP uses a token to control access to a multidrop bus.
   A master node may initiate the transmission of a data frame when it
   holds the token.  After sending at most a configured maximum number
   of data frames, a master node passes the token to the next master
   node (as determined by MAC address).  If present on the link, legacy
   MS/TP implementations (including all slave nodes) ignore the frame
   format defined in this specification.

   BACnet Addendum 135-2012an [Addendum_an] defines a range of Frame
   Type values to designate frames that contain larger data and data CRC
   fields, encoded using Consistent Overhead Byte Stuffing [COBS] (see
   Appendix B).  The purpose of COBS encoding is to eliminate preamble
   sequences from the Encoded Data and Encoded CRC-32K fields.  The
   maximum length of an MSDU as defined by this specification is 1500
   octets (before encoding).  The Encoded Data is covered by a 32-bit
   CRC [CRC32K] (see Appendix C).  The CRC-32K is then COBS encoded.

   MS/TP COBS-encoded frames have the following format:

   0                   1                   2                   3

     Preamble              two octet preamble: 0x55, 0xFF
     Frame Type            one octet
     Destination Address   one octet address
     Source Address        one octet address
     Length                two octets, most significant octet first
     Header CRC            one octet
     Encoded Data          2 - 1506 octets (see Appendix B)
     Encoded CRC-32K       five octets (see Appendix C)
     (pad)                 (optional) at most one octet of trailer: 0xFF


   The Frame Type is used to distinguish between different types of MAC
   frames.  The types relevant to this specification (in decimal) are:

      0  Token
      1  Poll For Master
      2  Reply To Poll For Master
         ...
     34  IPv6 over MS/TP (LoBAC) Encapsulation

   Frame Types 8 - 31 and 35 - 127 are reserved for assignment by
   ASHRAE.  Frame Types 32 - 127 designate COBS-encoded frames and MUST
   convey Encoded Data and Encoded CRC-32K fields.  All master nodes
   MUST understand Token, Poll For Master, and Reply to Poll For Master
   control frames.  See Section 2 for additional details.

   The Destination and Source Addresses are each one octet in length.
   See Section 3 for additional details.

   For COBS-encoded frames, the Length field indicates the size of the
   [COBS] Encoded Data field in octets, plus three.  (This adjustment is
   required in order for legacy MS/TP devices to ignore COBS-encoded
   frames.)  See Section 4 and Appendices for additional details.

   The Header CRC field covers the Frame Type, Destination Address,
   Source Address, and Length fields.  The Header CRC generation and
   check procedures are specified in BACnet [Clause9].

   Use of the optional 0xFF trailer octet is discussed in BACnet
   [Clause9].

1.4.  Goals and Constraints

   The primary goal of this specification is to enable IPv6 directly on
   wired end devices in building automation and control networks by
   leveraging existing standards to the greatest extent possible.  A
   secondary goal is to co-exist with legacy MS/TP implementations.
   Only the minimum changes necessary to support IPv6 over MS/TP were

Internet-Draft               IPv6 over MS/TP                October 2016


   specified in BACnet [Addendum_an] (see Section 1.3).

   In order to co-exist with legacy devices, no changes are permitted to
   the MS/TP addressing modes, frame header format, control frames, or
   Master Node state machine as specified in BACnet [Clause9].

2.  MS/TP Mode for IPv6

   ASHRAE has assigned an MS/TP Frame Type value of 34 to indicate IPv6
   over MS/TP (LoBAC) Encapsulation.  This falls within the range of
   values that designate COBS-encoded data frames.

   All MS/TP master nodes (including those that support IPv6) MUST
   implement the Master Node state machine specified in BACnet [Clause9]
   and handle Token, Poll For Master, and Reply to Poll For Master
   control frames.  MS/TP master nodes that support IPv6 MUST also
   implement the Receive Frame state machine specified in [Clause9] as
   extended by BACnet [Addendum_an].

   All MS/TP nodes that support IPv6 MUST support a data rate of 115,200
   bit/s and MAY optionally support lower data rates as defined in
   BACnet [Clause9].

3.  Addressing Modes

   MS/TP node (MAC) addresses are one octet in length.  The method of
   assigning MAC addresses is outside the scope of this specification.
   However, each MS/TP node on the link MUST have a unique address in
   order to ensure correct MAC operation.

   BACnet [Clause9] specifies that addresses 0 through 127 are valid for
   master nodes.  The method specified in Section 6 for creating a MAC-
   layer-derived Interface Identifier (IID) ensures that an IID of all
   zeros can never result.

   A Destination Address of 255 (all nodes) indicates a MAC-layer
   broadcast.  MS/TP does not support multicast, therefore all IPv6
   multicast packets MUST be broadcast at the MAC layer and filtered at
   the IPv6 layer.  A Source Address of 255 MUST NOT be used.

   Hosts learn IPv6 prefixes via router advertisements according to
   [RFC4861].

4.  Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU)

   BACnet [Addendum_an] supports MSDUs up to 2032 octets in length.
   This specification defines an MSDU length of at least 1280 octets and
   at most 1500 octets (before encoding).  This is sufficient to convey



Lynn, et al.               Expires May 4, 2017                  [Page 6]


Internet-Draft               IPv6 over MS/TP                October 2016


   the minimum MTU required by IPv6 [RFC2460] without the need for link-
   layer fragmentation and reassembly.  Support for an MSDU length of
   1500 octets is RECOMMENDED.

5.  LoBAC Adaptation Layer

   The relatively low data rates of MS/TP dictate header compression as
   a means to reduce latency.  This section specifies an adaptation
   layer to support compressed IPv6 headers as specified in Section 10.
   IPv6 header compression MUST be implemented on all nodes.

   Implementations MAY also support Generic Header Compression (GHC)
   [RFC7400] for transport layer headers.  A node implementing [RFC7400]
   MUST probe its peers for GHC support before applying GHC.

   The encapsulation format defined in this section (subsequently
   referred to as the "LoBAC" encapsulation) comprises the MSDU of an
   IPv6 over MS/TP frame.  The LoBAC payload (i.e., an IPv6 packet)
   follows an encapsulation header stack.  LoBAC is a subset of the
   LoWPAN encapsulation defined in [RFC4944] and extended by [RFC6282],
   therefore the use of "LOWPAN" in literals below is intentional.  The
   primary difference between LoWPAN and LoBAC is omission of the Mesh,
   Broadcast, Fragmentation, and LOWPAN_HC1 headers.

   All LoBAC encapsulated datagrams transmitted over MS/TP are prefixed
   by an encapsulation header stack consisting of a Dispatch value
   followed by zero or more header fields.  The only sequence currently
   defined for LoBAC is the LOWPAN_IPHC header followed by payload, as
   shown below:

             +---------------+---------------+------...-----+
             | IPHC Dispatch |  IPHC Header  |    Payload   |
             +---------------+---------------+------...-----+

    Figure 2: A LoBAC Encapsulated LOWPAN_IPHC Compressed IPv6 Datagram

   The Dispatch value may be treated as an unstructured namespace.  Only
   a single pattern is used to represent current LoBAC functionality.

     Pattern      Header Type
   +------------+-----------------------------------------------------+
   | 01  1xxxxx | LOWPAN_IPHC - LOWPAN_IPHC compressed IPv6 [RFC6282] |
   +------------+-----------------------------------------------------+

   Other IANA-assigned 6LoWPAN Dispatch values do not apply to 6LoBAC
   unless otherwise specified.

6.  Stateless Address Autoconfiguration

   This section defines how to obtain an IPv6 Interface Identifier.  The
   general procedure for creating a MAC-address-derived IID is described
   in [RFC4291] Appendix A, "Creating Modified EUI-64 Format Interface
   Identifiers", as updated by [RFC7136].

   The IID SHOULD NOT embed an [EUI-64] or any other globally unique
   hardware identifier assigned to a device (see Section 12).

   The Interface Identifier for link-local addresses SHOULD be formed by
   concatenating a node's' 8-bit MS/TP MAC address to the seven octets
   0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0xFF, 0xFE, 0x00, 0x00.  For example, an MS/TP MAC
   address of hexadecimal value 0x4F results in the following IID:

   |0              1|1              3|3              4|4              6|
   |0              5|6              1|2              7|8              3|
   +----------------+----------------+----------------+----------------+
   |0000000000000000|0000000011111111|1111111000000000|0000000001001111|
   +----------------+----------------+----------------+----------------+

   This is the RECOMMENDED method of forming an IID for use in link-
   local addresses, as it affords the most efficient header compression
   provided by the LOWPAN_IPHC [RFC6282] format specified in Section 10.

   A 64-bit random IID is RECOMMENDED for each globally scoped address
   and SHOULD be locally generated according to one of the methods cited
   in Section 12.  A node that generates a 64-bit random IID MUST
   register it with its local router(s) by sending a Neighbor
   Solicitation (NS) message with the Address Registration Option (ARO)
   and process Neighbor Advertisements (NA) according to [RFC6775].

   An IPv6 address prefix used for stateless autoconfiguration [RFC4862]
   of an MS/TP interface MUST have a length of 64 bits.

7.  IPv6 Link Local Address

   The IPv6 link-local address [RFC4291] for an MS/TP interface is
   formed by appending the Interface Identifier, as defined above, to
   the prefix FE80::/64.

     10 bits           54 bits                   64 bits
   +----------+-----------------------+----------------------------+
   |1111111010|        (zeros)        |    Interface Identifier    |

8.  Unicast Address Mapping

   The address resolution procedure for mapping IPv6 non-multicast
   addresses into MS/TP MAC-layer addresses follows the general
   description in Section 7.2 of [RFC4861], unless otherwise specified.

   The Source/Target Link-layer Address option has the following form
   when the addresses are 8-bit MS/TP MAC-layer (node) addresses.

    0                   1
    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |     Type      |    Length=1   |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |     0x00      | MS/TP Address |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |                               |
   +      Padding (all zeros)      +
   |                               |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Option fields:

   Type:

     1: for Source Link-layer address.

     2: for Target Link-layer address.

   Length:  This is the length of this option (including the type and
     length fields) in units of 8 octets.  The value of this field is 1
     for 8-bit MS/TP MAC addresses.

   MS/TP Address:  The 8-bit address in canonical bit order [RFC2469].
     This is the unicast address the interface currently responds to.

9.  Multicast Address Mapping

   All IPv6 multicast packets MUST be sent to MS/TP Destination Address
   255 (broadcast) and filtered at the IPv6 layer.  When represented as
   a 16-bit address in a compressed header (see Section 10), it MUST be
   formed by padding on the left with a zero:

    0                   1
    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |     0x00      |     0xFF      |

10.  Header Compression

   LoBAC uses LOWPAN_IPHC IPv6 compression, which is specified in
   [RFC6282] and included herein by reference.  This section will simply
   identify substitutions that should be made when interpreting the text
   of [RFC6282].

   In general the following substitutions should be made:

    - Replace instances of "6LoWPAN" with "MS/TP network"

    - Replace instances of "IEEE 802.15.4 address" with "MS/TP address"

   When a 16-bit address is called for (i.e., an IEEE 802.15.4 "short
   address") it MUST be formed by padding the MS/TP address to the left
   with a zero:

    0                   1
    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |     0x00      | MS/TP address |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+---------------+

   If LOWPAN_IPHC compression [RFC6282] is used with context, the
   router(s) directly attached to the MS/TP segment MUST disseminate the
   6LoWPAN Context Option (6CO) according to [RFC6775], Section 7.2.

11.  IANA Considerations

   This document uses values previously reserved by [RFC4944] and
   [RFC6282] and makes no further requests of IANA.

   Note to RFC Editor: this section may be removed upon publication.

12.  Security Considerations

   Globally scoped addresses that contain IIDs generated using MS/TP
   node addresses may expose a network to address scanning attacks.  For
   this reason, it is RECOMMENDED that a different (but stable) IID be
   generated for each globally scoped address in use according to, for
   example, [RFC3315], [RFC3972], [RFC4941], [RFC5535], or [RFC7217].

   MS/TP networks are by definition wired and not susceptible to casual
   eavesdropping.  By the same token, MS/TP nodes are stationary and
   correlation of activities or location tracking of individuals is
   unlikely.  See [I-D.ietf-6lo-privacy-considerations] for a full
   discussion of mitigation of the threats posed to constrained nodes.

Appendix A.  Abstract MAC Interface

   This Appendix is informative and not part of the standard.

   BACnet [Clause9] provides support for MAC-layer clients through its
   SendFrame and ReceivedDataNoReply procedures.  However, it does not
   define a network-protocol independent abstract interface for the MAC.
   This is provided below as an aid to implementation.

A.1.  MA-DATA.request

A.1.1.  Function

   This primitive defines the transfer of data from a MAC client entity
   to a single peer entity or multiple peer entities in the case of a
   broadcast address.

A.1.2.  Semantics of the Service Primitive

   The semantics of the primitive are as follows:

     MA-DATA.request (
                      destination_address,
                      source_address,
                      data,
                      type
                     )

   The 'destination_address' parameter may specify either an individual
   or a broadcast MAC entity address.  It must contain sufficient
   information to create the Destination Address field (see Section 1.3)
   that is prepended to the frame by the local MAC sublayer entity.  The
   'source_address' parameter, if present, must specify an individual
   MAC address.  If the source_address parameter is omitted, the local
   MAC sublayer entity will insert a value associated with that entity.

   The 'data' parameter specifies the MAC service data unit (MSDU) to be
   transferred by the MAC sublayer entity.  There is sufficient
   information associated with the MSDU for the MAC sublayer entity to
   determine the length of the data unit.

   The 'type' parameter specifies the value of the MS/TP Frame Type
   field that is prepended to the frame by the local MAC sublayer
   entity.

Internet-Draft               IPv6 over MS/TP                October 2016


A.1.3.  When Generated

   This primitive is generated by the MAC client entity whenever data
   shall be transferred to a peer entity or entities.  This can be in
   response to a request from higher protocol layers or from data
   generated internally to the MAC client, such as a Token frame.

A.1.4.  Effect on Receipt

   Receipt of this primitive will cause the MAC entity to insert all MAC
   specific fields, including Destination Address, Source Address, Frame
   Type, and any fields that are unique to the particular media access
   method, and pass the properly formed frame to the lower protocol
   layers for transfer to the peer MAC sublayer entity or entities.

A.2.  MA-DATA.indication

A.2.1.  Function

   This primitive defines the transfer of data from the MAC sublayer
   entity to the MAC client entity or entities in the case of a
   broadcast address.

A.2.2.  Semantics of the Service Primitive

   The semantics of the primitive are as follows:

     MA-DATA.indication (
                         destination_address,
                         source_address,
                         data,
                         type
                        )

   The 'destination_address' parameter may be either an individual or a
   broadcast address as specified by the Destination Address field of
   the incoming frame.  The 'source_address' parameter is an individual
   address as specified by the Source Address field of the incoming
   frame.

   The 'data' parameter specifies the MAC service data unit (MSDU) as
   received by the local MAC entity.  There is sufficient information
   associated with the MSDU for the MAC sublayer client to determine the
   length of the data unit.

   The 'type' parameter is the value of the MS/TP Frame Type field of
   the incoming frame.

Internet-Draft               IPv6 over MS/TP                October 2016


A.2.3.  When Generated

   The MA_DATA.indication is passed from the MAC sublayer entity to the
   MAC client entity or entities to indicate the arrival of a frame to
   the local MAC sublayer entity that is destined for the MAC client.
   Such frames are reported only if they are validly formed, received
   without error, and their destination address designates the local MAC
   entity.  Frames destined for the MAC Control sublayer are not passed
   to the MAC client.

A.2.4.  Effect on Receipt

   The effect of receipt of this primitive by the MAC client is
   unspecified.

Appendix B.  Consistent Overhead Byte Stuffing [COBS]

   This Appendix is informative and not part of the standard.

   BACnet [Addendum_an] corrects a long-standing issue with the MS/TP
   specification; namely that preamble sequences were not escaped
   whenever they appeared in the Data or Data CRC fields.  In rare
   cases, this resulted in dropped frames due to loss of frame
   synchronization.  The solution is to encode the Data and 32-bit Data
   CRC fields before transmission using Consistent Overhead Byte
   Stuffing [COBS] and decode these fields upon reception.

   COBS is a run-length encoding method that nominally removes '0x00'
   octets from its input.  Any selected octet value may be removed by
   XOR'ing that value with each octet of the COBS output.  BACnet
   [Addendum_an] specifies the preamble octet '0x55' for removal.

   The minimum overhead of COBS is one octet per encoded field.  The
   worst-case overhead in long fields is bounded to one octet per 254,
   or less than 0.4%, as described in [COBS].

   Frame encoding proceeds logically in two passes.  The Encoded Data
   field is prepared by passing the MSDU through the COBS encoder and
   XOR'ing the preamble octet '0x55' with each octet of the output.  The
   Encoded CRC-32K field is then prepared by calculating a CRC-32K over
   the Encoded Data field and formatting it for transmission as
   described in Appendix C.  The combined length of these fields, minus
   two octets for compatibility with existing MS/TP devices, is placed
   in the MS/TP header Length field before transmission.

   Example COBS encoder and decoder functions are shown below for
   illustration.  Complete examples of use and test vectors are provided
   in BACnet [Addendum_an].

Appendix C.  Encoded CRC-32K [CRC32K]

   This Appendix is informative and not part of the standard.

   Extending the payload of MS/TP to 1500 octets required upgrading the
   Data CRC from 16 bits to 32 bits.  P.Koopman has authored several
   papers on evaluating CRC polynomials for network applications.  In

   [CRC32K], he surveyed the entire 32-bit polynomial space and noted
   some that exceed the [IEEE.802.3] polynomial in performance.  BACnet
   [Addendum_an] specifies the CRC-32K (Koopman) polynomial.

   The specified use of the calc_crc32K() function is as follows.
   Before a frame is transmitted, 'crc_value' is initialized to all
   ones.  After passing each octet of the [COBS] Encoded Data through
   the function, the ones complement of the resulting 'crc_value' is
   arranged in LSB-first order and is itself [COBS] encoded.  The length
   of the resulting Encoded CRC-32K field is always five octets.

   Upon reception of a frame, 'crc_value' is initialized to all ones.
   The octets of the Encoded Data field are accumulated by the
   calc_crc32K() function before decoding.  The Encoded CRC-32K field is
   then decoded and the resulting four octets are accumulated by the
   calc_crc32K() function.  If the result is the expected residue value
   'CRC32K_RESIDUE', then the frame was received correctly.

   An example CRC-32K function in shown below for illustration.
   Complete examples of use and test vectors are provided in BACnet
   [Addendum_an].
