Internet-Draft           DHCPv4 & v6 ANI options                May 2013


1.  Introduction

   Access network identification of a network device has a range of
   application.  For e.g.  The local mobility anchor in a Proxy Mobile
   IPv6 domain is able to provide access network and access operator
   specific handling or policing of the mobile node traffic using
   information about the access network to which the mobile node is
   attached.

   This document specifies Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol v4
   (DHCPv4) [RFC2131] and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol v6
   (DHCPv6) [RFC3315] options for access network identification that is
   added by Client or Relay agent in the DHCPv4 or DHCPv6 messages
   towards the Server.

   Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client or DHCP relay agent
   aware of the access network and access operator add this information
   in the DHCP messages.  This information can be used to provide
   differentiated services and policing of traffic based on the access
   network to which a client is attached.  Examples of how this
   information can be used in mobile networks can be found in [RFC6757]


2.  Motivation

   Proxy mobile IPv6 [RFC5213] can be used for supporting network-based
   mobility management in various type of network deployments.  The
   network architectures, such as Service provider Wi-Fi access
   aggregation or, WLAN integrated mobile packet core are examples where
   Proxy Mobile IPv6 is a component of the overall architecture.  Some
   of these architectures require the ability of the local mobility
   anchor (LMA) [RFC5213] to provide differentiated services and
   policing of traffic to the mobile nodes based on the access network
   to which they are attached.  Policy systems in mobility architectures
   such as PCC [TS23203] and ANDSF [TS23402] in 3GPP system allow
   configuration of policy rules with conditions based on the access
   network information.  For example, the service treatment for the
   mobile node's traffic may be different when they are attached to a
   access network owned by the home operator than when owned by a
   roaming partner.  The service treatment can also be different based
   on the configured Service Set Identifiers (SSID) in case of IEEE
   802.11 based access networks.  Other examples of services include the
   operator's ability to apply tariff based on the location.

   The PMIPv6 extension as specified in [RFC6757] defines PMIPv6 options
   to carry access network identifiers in PMIPv6 signaling from Mobile
   Access Gateway (MAG) to LMA.  MAG can learn this information from
   DHCP options as inserted by DHCP client or Relay agent before MAG.

Internet-Draft           DHCPv4 & v6 ANI options                May 2013


   If MAG relays DHCP messages to LMA as specified in [RFC5844] this
   information can be inserted by MAG towards LMA in the forwarded DHCP
   messages.

   Figure 1 illustrates an example Proxy Mobile IPv6 deployment where
   Access Points (AP) inserts access network identifiers in DHCP
   messages.  The mobile access gateway learns this information over
   DHCP and delivers the information elements related to the access
   network to the local mobility anchor over Proxy Mobile IPv6 signaling
   messages.  In this example, the additional information could comprise
   the SSID of the used IEEE 802.11 network and the identities of the
   operators running the IEEE 802.11 access network infrastructure.

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

   code: 8-bit code carrying Access Network Identifier sub-options,
         If added by relay agent: Relay Agent Information Option (82)
         If added by client: OPTION_ACCESS_NETWORK_ID (TBD1)

   len: 8 bit indicating total length of the included suboptions.

   ANI Sub-options: The  ANI Sub-options consists of a
     sequence of SubOpt/Length/Value tuples for each sub-option, encoded
     in the following manner:

   SubOpt   Len     Sub-option Value

   Network Name:  The name of the access network to which the mobile
      node is attached.  The type of the Network Name is dependent on
      the access technology to which the mobile node is attached.  If it
      is 802.11 access, the Network Name MUST be the SSID of the
      network.  If the access network is 3GPP access, the Network Name
      is the PLMN Identifier of the network.  If the access network is
      3GPP2 access, the Network Name is the
      Access Network Identifier [ANI].

      When encoding the PLMN Identifier, both the Mobile Network Code
      (MNC) [TS23003] and Mobile Country Code (MCC) [TS23003] MUST be 3
      digits.  If the MNC in use only has 2 digits, then it MUST be
      preceded with a '0'.  Encoding MUST be UTF-8.

                       range of 2 to 32 octets.

   Common format applicable to DHCPv4 and DHCPv6:

   Access-Point Name:   The name of the access point (physical device
      name) to which the mobile node is attached.  This is the
      identifier that uniquely identifies the access point.  While
      Network Name (e.g., SSID) identifies the operator's access
      network, Access-Point Name identifies a specific network device in
      the network to which the mobile node is attached.  In some
      deployments, the Access-Point Name can be set to the Media Access
      Control (MAC) address of the device or some unique identifier that
      can be used by the policy systems in the operator network to
      unambiguously identify the device.  The string is carried in UTF-8
      representation.

6.3.  Operator identifier options

   The Operator identifier options can be used for carrying the operator
   identifier of the access network to which the client is
   attached.There can only be a single instance of each of these options
   in any DHCPv6 message or single instance of each of these sub-options
   in DHCPv4 OPTION_ACCESS_NETWORK_ID or Relay Agent information option.
   The format of these options is defined below.

                        in octets of this option.

  Common format applicable to DHCPv4 and DHCPv6:

  Operator Realm:  Realm of the operator. Realm names are required to be
          unique, and are piggybacked on the administration of the DNS
          namespace.  Realms are encoded using a domain name encoding
          defined in [RFC1035].Up to 253 octets of the operator realm.



7.  Client Behavior

   All hosts or clients MAY include access network identifier options in
   all the upstream DHCP messages to inform the receiver about the
   access network it is attached to.

Internet-Draft           DHCPv4 & v6 ANI options                May 2013


8.  Relay Agent Behavior

   DHCP Relay Agents MAY include these options before forwarding the
   DHCP message to provide information about the access network over
   which DHCP messages from the client is received.


9.  Server Behavior

   If DHCP Server is unable to understand this option it MUST be
   ignored.  There is no requirement that a server return this option
   and its data in a downstream DHCP message.  If DHCP Server is able to
   process these options it MAY use it for address pool selection policy
   decisions if configured.  It MAY store this information along with
   the lease for logging and audit purpose.


10.  IANA Considerations

   This document defines DHCPv4 Access Network Identifier option which
   requires assignment of DHCPv4 option code TBD1 assigned from "Bootp
   and DHCP options" registry (http://www.iana.org/assignments/
   bootp-dhcp-parameters/bootp-dhcp-parameters.xml), as specified in
   [RFC2939].

   IANA is requested to assign Sub-option codes for the following DHCPv4
   Sub-options from the "DHCP Relay Agent Sub-Option Codes"

          Sub-option Code            Sub-Option Description
          ---------------            ----------------------
               TBD7                   Access-Network-Type Sub-option
               TBD8                   Network-Name Sub-option
               TBD9                   AP-Name Sub-option
               TBD10                  Operator-Identifier Sub-option
               TBD11                  Operator-Realm Sub-option

   IANA is requested to assign option codes for the following DHCPv6
   options from the "DHCPv6 and DHCPv6 options" registry (http://
   www.iana.org/assignments/dhcpv6-parameters/dhcpv6-parameters.xml).

              TBD6           OPTION_ANI_OPERATOR_REALM


11.  Security Considerations

   Since there is no privacy protection for DHCP messages, an
   eavesdropper who can monitor the link between the DHCP server, relay
   agent and client can discover access network information.

   To minimize the unintended exposure of this information, this option
   SHOULD be included by DHCP entities only when it is configured.
   Where critical decisions might be based on the value of this option,
   DHCP authentication as defined in "Authentication for DHCP Messages"
   [RFC3118] and "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6)"
   [RFC3315] SHOULD be used to protect the integrity of the DHCP
   options.  Link-layer confidentiality and integrity protection may
   also be employed to reduce the risk of disclosure and tampering.

   Security issues related DHCPv6 are described in section 23 of
   [RFC3315].
