1.  Introduction

   This document specifies the conventions for using the HSS/LMS hash-
   based signature algorithm with the CBOR Object Signing and Encryption
   (COSE) [RFC8152] syntax.  The Leighton-Micali Signature (LMS) system
   provides a one-time digital signature that is a variant of Merkle
   Tree Signatures (MTS).  The Hierarchical Signature System (HSS) is
   built on top of the LMS system to efficiently scale for a larger
   numbers of signatures.  The HSS/LMS algorithm is one form of hash-
   based digital signature, and it is described in [HASHSIG].  The HSS/
   LMS signature algorithm can only be used for a fixed number of
   signing operations.  The number of signing operations depends upon
   the size of the tree.  The HSS/LMS signature algorithm uses small
   public keys, and it has low computational cost; however, the
   signatures are quite large.  The HSS/LMS private key can be very
   small when the signer is willing to perform additional computation at
   signing time; alternatively, the private key can consume additional
   memory and provide a faster signing time.

1.1.  Algorithm Security Considerations

   There have been recent advances in cryptanalysis and advances in the
   development of quantum computers.  Each of these advances pose a
   threat to widely deployed digital signature algorithms.

   At Black Hat USA 2013, some researchers gave a presentation on the
   current state of public key cryptography.  They said: "Current
   cryptosystems depend on discrete logarithm and factoring which has
   seen some major new developments in the past 6 months" [BH2013].  Due
   to advances in cryptanalysis, they encouraged preparation for a day
   when RSA and DSA cannot be depended upon.

   Peter Shor showed that a large-scale quantum computer could be used
   to factor a number in polynomial time [S1997], effectively breaking
   RSA.  If large-scale quantum computers are ever built, these
   computers will be able to break many of the public-key cryptosystems
   currently in use.  A post-quantum cryptosystem [PQC] is a system that
   is secure against quantum computers that have more than a trivial
   number of quantum bits (qu-bits).  It is open to conjecture when it
   will be feasible to build such computers; however, RSA, DSA, ECDSA,
   and EdDSA are all vulnerable if large-scale quantum computers come to
   pass.

   The HSS/LMS signature algorithm does not depend on the difficulty of
   discrete logarithm or factoring, as a result these algorithms are
   considered to be post-quantum secure.

   Hash-based signatures [HASHSIG] are currently defined to use
   exclusively SHA-256 [SHS].  An IANA registry is defined so that other
   hash functions could be used in the future.  LM-OTS signature
   generation prepends a random string as well as other metadata before
   computing the hash value.  The inclusion of the random value reduces
   the chances of an attacker being able to find collisions, even if the
   attacker has a large-scale quantum computer.

   Today, RSA is often used to digitally sign software updates.  This
   means that the distribution of software updates could be compromised
   if a significant advance is made in factoring or a large-scale
   quantum computer is invented.  The use of HSS/LMS hash-based
   signatures to protect software update distribution, perhaps using the
   format that is being specified by the IETF SUIT Working Group, will
   allow the deployment of software that implements new cryptosystems.

1.2.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
   BCP 14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

2.  LMS Digital Signature Algorithm Overview

   This specification makes use of the hash-based signature algorithm
   specified in [HASHSIG], which is the Leighton and Micali adaptation
   [LM] of the original Lamport-Diffie-Winternitz-Merkle one-time
   signature system [M1979][M1987][M1989a][M1989b].

   The hash-based signature algorithm has three major components:

      o  Hierarchical Signature System (HSS) -- see Section 2.1;

      o  Leighton-Micali Signature (LMS) -- see Section 2.2; and

      o  Leighton-Micali One-time Signature Algorithm (LM-OTS) -- see
            Section 2.3.

   As implied by the name, the hash-based signature algorithm depends on
   a collision-resistant hash function.  The the hash-based signature
   algorithm specified in [HASHSIG] currently makes use of the SHA-256
   one-way hash function [SHS], but it also establishes an IANA registry
   to permit the registration of additional one-way hash functions in
   the future.

2.1.  Hierarchical Signature System (HSS)

   The hash-based signature algorithm specified in [HASHSIG] uses a
   hierarchy of trees.  The Hierarchical N-time Signature System (HSS)
   allows subordinate trees to be generated when needed by the signer.
   Otherwise, generation of the entire tree might take weeks or longer.

   An HSS signature as specified in [HASHSIG] carries the number of
   signed public keys (Nspk), followed by that number of signed public
   keys, followed by the LMS signature as described in Section 2.2.  The
   public key for the top-most LMS tree is the public key of the HSS
   system.  The LMS private key in the parent tree signs the LMS public
   key in the child tree, and the LMS private key in the bottom-most
   tree signs the actual message.  The signature over the public key and
   the signature over the actual message are LMS signatures as described
   in Section 2.2.

Internet-Draft              HashSig with COSE                   May 2019


   The elements of the HSS signature value for a stand-alone tree (a top
   tree with no children) can be summarized as:

      u32str(0) ||
      lms_signature  /* signature of message */

   The elements of the HSS signature value for a tree with Nspk signed
   public keys can be summarized as:

      u32str(Nspk) ||
      signed_public_key[0] ||
      signed_public_key[1] ||
         ...
      signed_public_key[Nspk-2] ||
      signed_public_key[Nspk-1] ||
      lms_signature  /* signature of message */

   where, as defined in Section 3.3 of [HASHSIG], a signed_public_key is
   the lms_signature over the public key followed by the public key
   itself.  Note that Nspk is the number of levels in the hierarchy of
   trees minus 1.

2.2.  Leighton-Micali Signature (LMS)

   Each tree in the hash-based signature algorithm specified in
   [HASHSIG] uses the Leighton-Micali Signature (LMS) system.  LMS
   systems have two parameters.  The first parameter is the height of
   the tree, h, which is the number of levels in the tree minus one.
   The [HASHSIG] includes support for five values of this parameter:
   h=5; h=10; h=15; h=20; and h=25.  Note that there are 2^h leaves in
   the tree.  The second parameter is the number of bytes output by the
   hash function, m, which is the amount of data associated with each
   node in the tree.  This specification supports only SHA-256, with
   m=32.  An IANA registry is defined so that other hash functions could
   be used in the future.

   The [HASHSIG] specification supports five tree sizes:

      LMS_SHA256_M32_H5;
      LMS_SHA256_M32_H10;
      LMS_SHA256_M32_H15;
      LMS_SHA256_M32_H20; and
      LMS_SHA256_M32_H25.

   The [HASHSIG] specification establishes an IANA registry to permit
   the registration of additional hash functions and additional tree
   sizes in the future.

Internet-Draft              HashSig with COSE                   May 2019


   The LMS public key can be summarized as:

      u32str(lms_algorithm_type) || u32str(otstype) || I || T[1]

   An LMS signature consists of four elements: the number of the leaf
   associated with the LM-OTS signature, an LM-OTS signature as
   described in Section 2.3, a typecode indicating the particular LMS
   algorithm, and an array of values that is associated with the path
   through the tree from the leaf associated with the LM-OTS signature
   to the root.  The array of values contains the siblings of the nodes
   on the path from the leaf to the root but does not contain the nodes
   on the path itself.  The array for a tree with height h will have h
   values.  The first value is the sibling of the leaf, the next value
   is the sibling of the parent of the leaf, and so on up the path to
   the root.

   The four elements of the LMS signature value can be summarized as:

      u32str(q) ||
      ots_signature ||
      u32str(type) ||
      path[0] || path[1] || ... || path[h-1]

2.3.  Leighton-Micali One-time Signature Algorithm (LM-OTS)

   The hash-based signature algorithm depends on a one-time signature
   method.  This specification makes use of the Leighton-Micali One-time
   Signature Algorithm (LM-OTS) [HASHSIG].  An LM-OTS has five
   parameters:

      n -  The number of bytes output by the hash function.  This
           specification supports only SHA-256 [SHS], with n=32.

      H -  A preimage-resistant hash function that accepts byte strings
           of any length, and returns an n-byte string.  This
           specification supports only SHA-256 [SHS].

      w -  The width in bits of the Winternitz coefficients.  [HASHSIG]
           supports four values for this parameter: w=1; w=2; w=4; and
           w=8.

      p -  The number of n-byte string elements that make up the LM-OTS
           signature.

      ls - The number of left-shift bits used in the checksum function,
           which is defined in Section 4.5 of [HASHSIG].

Internet-Draft              HashSig with COSE                   May 2019


   The values of p and ls are dependent on the choices of the parameters
   n and w, as described in Appendix A of [HASHSIG].

   The [HASHSIG] specification supports four LM-OTS variants:

      LMOTS_SHA256_N32_W1;
      LMOTS_SHA256_N32_W2;
      LMOTS_SHA256_N32_W4; and
      LMOTS_SHA256_N32_W8.

   The [HASHSIG] specification establishes an IANA registry to permit
   the registration of additional hash functions and additional
   parameter sets in the future.

   Signing involves the generation of C, which is an n-byte random
   value.

   The LM-OTS signature value can be summarized as:

      u32str(otstype) || C || y[0] || ... || y[p-1]

3.  Hash-based Signature Algorithm Identifiers

   The CBOR Object Signing and Encryption (COSE) [RFC8152] supports two
   signature algorithm schemes.  This specification makes use of the
   signature with appendix scheme for hash-based signatures.

   The signature value is a large byte string.  The byte string is
   designed for easy parsing, and it includes a counter and type codes
   that indirectly provide all of the information that is needed to
   parse the byte string during signature validation.

   When using a COSE key for this algorithm, the following checks are
   made:

      o  The 'kty' field MUST be present, and it MUST be 'HSS-LMS'.

      o  If the 'alg' field is present, and it MUST be 'HSS-LMS'.

      o  If the 'key_ops' field is present, it MUST include 'sign' when
           creating a hash-based signature.

      o  If the 'key_ops' field is present, it MUST include 'verify'
           when verifying a hash-based signature.

      o  If the 'kid' field is present, it MAY be used to identify the
           top of the HSS tree.  In [HASHSIG], this identifier is called
           'I', and it is the 16-byte identifier of the LMS public key
           for the tree.

4.  Security Considerations

4.1.  Implementation Security Considerations

   Implementations must protect the private keys.  Use of a hardware
   security module (HSM) is one way to protect the private keys.
   Compromise of the private keys may result in the ability to forge
   signatures.  Along with the private key, the implementation must keep
   track of which leaf nodes in the tree have been used.  Loss of
   integrity of this tracking data can cause a one-time key to be used
   more than once.  As a result, when a private key and the tracking
   data are stored on non-volatile media or stored in a virtual machine
   environment, care must be taken to preserve confidentiality and
   integrity.

   When a LMS key pair is generating a LMS key pair, an implementation
   must must generate the key pair and the corresponding identifier
   independently of all other key pairs in the HSS tree.

   An implementation must ensure that a LM-OTS private key is used to
   generate a signature only one time, and ensure that it cannot be used
   for any other purpose.

   The generation of private keys relies on random numbers.  The use of
   inadequate pseudo-random number generators (PRNGs) to generate these
   values can result in little or no security.  An attacker may find it
   much easier to reproduce the PRNG environment that produced the keys,
   searching the resulting small set of possibilities, rather than brute
   force searching the whole key space.  The generation of quality
   random numbers is difficult.  [RFC4086] offers important guidance in
   this area.

Internet-Draft              HashSig with COSE                   May 2019


   The generation of hash-based signatures also depends on random
   numbers.  While the consequences of an inadequate pseudo-random
   number generator (PRNGs) to generate these values is much less severe
   than the generation of private keys, the guidance in [RFC4086]
   remains important.

5.  Operational Considerations

   The public key for the hash-based signature is the key at the root of
   Hierarchical Signature System (HSS).  In the absence of a public key
   infrastructure [RFC5280], this public key is a trust anchor, and the
   number of signatures that can be generated is bounded by the size of
   the overall HSS set of trees.  When all of the LM-OTS signatures have
   been used to produce a signature, then the establishment of a new
   trust anchor is required.

   To ensure that none of tree nodes are used to generate more than one
   signature, the signer maintains state across different invocations of
   the signing algorithm.  Section 12.2 of [HASHSIG] offers some
   practical implementation approaches around this statefulness.  In
   some of these approaches, nodes are sacrificed to ensure that none
   are used more than once.  As a result, the total number of signatures
   that can be generated might be less than the overall HSS set of
   trees.

6.  IANA Considerations

   IANA is requested to add entries for hash-based signatures in the
   "COSE Algorithms" registry and hash-based public keys in the "COSE
   Key Types" registry.

6.1.  COSE Algorithms Registry Entry

   The new entry in the "COSE Algorithms" registry has the following
