   Abstract

      In certain scenarios it is desirable to limit user access using
      dynamic VLANs, reprioritization, filters, or redirection.  This
      document proposes additional attributes for this purpose, for use
      with the Remote Authentication Dial In User Server (RADIUS).  The
      attributes described in this document are expected to be useful in
      a variety of environments, including enterprise and service
      provider scenarios.

INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

   1.  Introduction

      Within the confines of RADIUS authentication, authorization, and
      accounting (AAA) environments, there is a requirement for
      standardized RADIUS attributes to limit user access using dynamic
      VLANs, reprioritization, filters or redirection.

      For example, in IEEE 802.1X [IEEE8021X] environments, which
      provides "network port authentication" for IEEE 802 [IEEE802]
      media, including Ethernet [IEEE8023] and 802.11 [IEEE80211i]
      wireless LANS, there exists a strong desire to control
      authorization beyond just the untagged VLAN parameter based on
      tunnel attributes in [RFC2868] and usage of these in [RFC3580].

      This document describes VLAN, reprioritization, filtering and
      redirection attributes that may prove useful in IEEE 802.1X and a
      variety of situations. The attributes defined in this document may
      be used with RADIUS dynamic authorization [RFC3576].

      The Filter-ID attribute defined in [RFC2865] requires the NAS to
      be pre-populated with the desired filters. This may be difficult
      to deploy in roaming scenarios where the home realm may not know
      what filters have been pre-populated by the local operator.  The
      filtering attributes specified in this document enable explicit
      description of layer 2 and layer 3 filters as well as redirection,
      and therefore extend the filter language described in [RFC3588].

      User traffic redirection is supported with or without tunneling.
      Tunneling support is provided using the tunnel attributes defined
      in [RFC2868].  Redirection of traffic in mid-session may break
      applications.

      While [RFC3580] enables support for VLAN assignment based on the
      tunnel attributes defined in [RFC2868], it does not provide
      support for a more complete set of VLAN functionality as defined
      by [IEEE8021Q].  The VLAN attributes defined in this document
      provide support within RADIUS analogous to the management
      variables supported in [IEEE8021Q] and MIB objects defined in
      [RFC2674].  In addition, this document enables support for a wider
      range of [IEEE8021X] configurations.

INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

   1.1. Terminology

      In this document when we refer to Blocking of IP traffic we mean
      Filtering of IP traffic. Additionally, this document uses the
      following terms:

      Authenticator
               An authenticator is an entity that require authentication
               from the supplicant.  The authenticator may be connected
               to the supplicant at the other end of a point-to-point
               LAN segment or 802.11 wireless link.

      Authentication server
               An authentication server is an entity that provides an
               authentication service to an authenticator.  This service
               verifies from the credentials provided by the supplicant,
               the claim of identity made by the supplicant.

      Hot-lining
               Blocking and redirection of users traffic is known as
               hot-lining of accounts.  In this document, hot-lining is
               used as the motivation for these attributes and an
               illustration of how they would be used. However, the
               attributes may be used together or separately to provide
               other features.

      Redirection
               Refers to an action taken by the NAS to redirect the
               user's traffic to an alternate location.

      Supplicant
               A supplicant is an entity that is being authenticated by
               an authenticator.  The supplicant may be connected to the
               authenticator at one end of a point-to-point LAN segment
               or 802.11 wireless link.

   1.2. Requirements Language

      In this document, several words are used to signify the
      requirements of the specification.  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].

      An implementation is not compliant if it fails to satisfy one or
      more of the must or must not requirements for the protocols it
      implements. An implementation that satisfies all the must, must
      not, should and should not requirements for its protocols is said
      to be "unconditionally compliant"; one that satisfies all the must
      and must not requirements but not all the should or should not


Congdon, et al.             Informational                    [Page 4]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

      requirements for its protocols is said to be "conditionally
      compliant".

   1.3. Capability Advertisement

      RADIUS does not currently define a method by which a NAS can
      advertise its capabilities and in many instances, it would be
      desirable for the home network to know what capabilities are
      supported by the NAS to ensure proper operational behavior. The
      attributes defined in this document are intended to be used to
      enforce policy by the NAS. If a NAS does not recognize these
      attributes it will most likely ignore them and the desired policy
      will not be enforced. A method for the NAS advertising the
      capability to support these attributes would help the RADIUS
      server understand if the intended policies can be enforced. As a
      result, the attributes in this document, in particular NAS-Filter-
      Rule(TBD), can benefit from capability advertisement, if
      available.

   1.4 Attribute Interpretation

      Unless otherwise noted in the individual description of an
      attribute contained herein, a NAS that conforms to this
      specification and receives an Access-Accept message that contains
      an attribute from this document that it cannot apply MUST
      interpret this though an Access-Reject had been sent and MUST
      terminate the session.  If accounting is enabled on the NAS, it
      MUST generate an Accounting-Request(Stop) message upon session
      termination.

      Similarly, if a NAS conforming to this specification and also
      conforming to RFC 3576 [RFC3576] receives a CoA message that
      contains an attribute from this document that it cannot apply, it
      MUST NOT terminate the session and MUST generate a CoA-NAK packet
      with ERROR-CAUSE(101) set to "Unsupported Attribute"(401).  If
      accounting is enabled on the NAS, it MUST NOT generate an
      Accounting-Request(Stop) message in such instances.

   2.   RADIUS Authentication

      This specification introduces five new RADIUS authentication
      attributes.

   2.1.  Egress-VLANID

      Description

         The Egress-VLANID attribute represents an allowed IEEE 802
         Egress VLANID for this port.  The Egress-VLANID contains two



Congdon, et al.             Informational                    [Page 5]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

         parts: the first part indicates if the VLANID is allowed for
         tagged or untagged packets and the second part is the VLANID.

         Multiple Egress-VLANID attributes can be delivered in an
         authentication response; each attribute adds the specified VLAN
         to the list of allowed egress VLANs for the port.

      The Egress-VLANID attribute is shown below.  The fields are
      transmitted from left to right:

       0                   1                   2                   3
       0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1

      |     Type      |    Length     |  Tag Option   |   Pad (12-bit)
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
        Pad   |    VLANID (12-bit)    |
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

      Type

         TBD

      Length

         6

      Integer

         The Integer field is four octets in length.  The format of the
         Integer field consists of three parts, the first consuming the
         high-order octet, the second consuming the subsequent 12-bits,
         and the third consuming the low-order 12-bits. The high-order
         octet, the Tag Option, indicates whether the frames on the VLAN
         are tagged 0x31 or untagged 0x32. The second part is 12-bits of
         padding. Padding bits MUST be 0 (zero). The third part is the
         12-bit [IEEE8021Q] VLAN VID value.


   2.2. Ingress-Filters

      Description

         The Ingress-Filters attribute corresponds to Ingress Filter
         per-port variable defined in IEEE 802.1Q clause 8.4.5.  When
         the attribute has the value "Enabled", the set of VLANs that
         are allowed to ingress a port must match the set of VLANs that
         are allowed to egress a port. Only a single Ingress-Filters
         attribute MAY be sent within an Access-Accept or CoA-Request;
         this attribute MUST NOT be sent within an Access-Request,
         Access-Challenge, Access-Reject, or Disconnect-Request.

         The Ingress-Filters attribute is shown below.  The fields are
         transmitted from left to right:

       0                   1                   2                   3

         6

      Integer

         The values include:

         1 - Enabled
         2 - Disabled

   2.3.  Egress-VLAN-Name

      Description

         Clause 12.10.2.1.3 (a) in [IEEE8021Q] describes the
         administratively assigned VLAN Name associated with a VLAN ID
         defined within an 802.1Q bridge. The Egress-VLAN-Name attribute
         represents an allowed VLAN for this port.  It works similar to
         the Egress-VLANID attribute except that the VLAN-ID itself is
         not specified or known, rather the VLAN name is used to
         identify the VLAN within the system.

         The Egress-VLAN-Name attribute contains two parts; the first
         part indicates if frames on the VLAN for this port are to be
         represented in tagged or untagged format, the second part is
         the VLAN name.

         Multiple Egress-VLAN-Name attributes can be delivered in an
         authentication response; each attribute adds the named VLAN to
         the list of allowed egress VLANs for the port.

      String

         The first octet of this string, the tag option field, indicates
         whether the frames on the VLAN are tagged 0x31 or untagged
         0x32.  The remaining octets of the VLAN-Name field represent
         the VLAN Name as defined in 802.1Q-2003 clause 12.10.2.1.3 (a).
         [RFC3629] UTF-8 encoded 10646 characters are recommended, but a
         robust implementation SHOULD support the field as
         undistinguished octets.


   2.4. User-Priority-Table

      Description

         [IEEE802.1D] clause 7.5.1 discusses how to regenerate (or re-
         map) user priority on frames received at a port.  This per-port
         configuration enables a bridge to cause the priority of
         received traffic at a port to be mapped to a particular
         priority.  The management variables are described in clause
         14.6.2.2.

         This attribute represents the IEEE 802 prioritization that will
         be applied to packets arriving at this port.  There are eight
         possible user priorities, according to the [IEEE802] standard.

INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

         The User-Priority-Table attribute is shown below.  The fields
         are transmitted from left to right:

       0                   1                   2                   3

      |   Type (TBD)  |  Length       |      String
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
                                  String (cont.)                      |
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+


      Type

         TBD

      Length

         10

      String

         The table, expressed as an 8 octet string, maps the incoming
         priority (if one exists - the default is 0) into one of eight
         regenerated priorities.  The format of this attribute is an
         eight byte octet string, where the first octet maps to incoming
         priority 0, the second octet to incoming priority 1, etc.  The
         values in each octet represent the regenerated priority of the
         packet.

         It is thus possible to either remap incoming priorities to more
         appropriate values; or to honor the incoming priorities; or to
         override any incoming priorities, forcing them to all map to a
         single chosen priority.

         The [IEEE 8021D] specification, Annex G, provides a useful
         description of traffic type - traffic class mappings.


   2.5.  NAS-Filter-Rule

      Description

         The NAS-Filter-Rule attribute is derived from the Diameter
         IPFilterRule and enables provisioning of base encapsulation
         (Layer 2) rules, Internet Protocol (Layer 3-4) rules, and HTTP
         (Layer 5+) rules on the NAS by the RADIUS server.  Compared to
         Diameter's IPFilterRule, NAS-Filter-Rule is a superset in
         functionality, but is largely based on the same syntax
         foundations.


Congdon, et al.             Informational                    [Page 9]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005


         For each rule and depending on the rule type, the NAS can be
         instructed to take a single action as follows:

            Rule Type               Allowable rule action
            -------------------     ---------------------
            Base Encapsulation      filter, tunnel
            Internet Protocol       filter, tunnel
            HTTP                    filter, redirect

         When specifying a base encapsulation rule, NAS-Filter-Rule
         processes packets based on the following information that is

            Base encapsulation type
            Source and destination MAC address  (possibly masked)

         For a base encapsulation rule, the filter action entails having
         the NAS permit (i.e. forward) or deny (i.e. block) a user's
         traffic. The tunnel action entails having the NAS forward user
         traffic to or from a named tunnel that has been established per
         [RFC2868].

         When specifying an Internet Protocol rule, NAS-Filter-Rule
         processes packets based on the following information that is
         associated with it:

            Direction                           (in and/or out)
            Source and destination IP address   (possibly masked)
            Protocol
            Source and destination port         (lists or ranges)
            TCP flags
            IP fragment flag
            IP options
            ICMP types

         For an Internet Protocol rule, the filter action entails having
         the NAS permit (i.e. forward) or deny (i.e. block) a user's
         traffic.  The tunnel action entails having the NAS forward user
         traffic to or from a named tunnel that has been established per
         [RFC2868].

         When specifying an HTTP rule, NAS-Filter-Rule process packets
         based on the following information that is associated with it:

INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

         For an HTTP rule, the filter action entails having the NAS
         permit (i.e. forward) or deny (i.e. block) a user's [RFC2616]
         request message.  For a deny action, the NAS MAY respond to the
         request message with a code 403 (Forbidden) response in
         accordance with [RFC2616]. For a redirect action the NAS SHOULD
         respond to the user's request with a code 302 (Found) response
         in accordance with [RFC2616].

         For the HTTP redirection action, it is also possible to have
         redirection automatically removed by including a redir-cnt
         count parameter along with the rule.  The rule will be removed
         from the active rule set when the rule matches redir-cnt number
         of times. Upon removal from the active rule set, traffic is no
         longer evaluated against this rule.

         It should be noted that an HTTP filter or redirect rule is only
         useful with plain-text HTTP and not HTTPS. Redirection or
         filtering of HTTPS is outside the scope of this document.

         As per the requirements of RFC 2865, Section 2.3, if multiple
         NAS-Filter-Rule attributes are contained within an Access-
         Request or Access-Accept packet, they MUST be maintained in
         order. The attributes MUST be consecutive attributes in the
         packet. RADIUS proxies MUST NOT reorder NAS-Filter-Rule
         attributes.

         The RADIUS server can return multiple NAS-Filter-Rule
         attributes in an Access-Accept or CoA-Request packet. Where
         more than one NAS-Filter-Rule attribute is included, it is
         assumed that the attributes are to be concatenated to form a
         single filter list. Furthermore, if the list contains different
         types of rules, they MUST appear in the following order: flush
         rules, base encapsulation tunnel rules, base encapsulation
         filter rules, IP tunnel rules, HTTP redirect rules, IP filter
         rules, and HTTP filter rules.

         Rules are evaluated in order, with the first matched rule
         terminating the evaluation. Each packet is evaluated once.  If
         no rule matches, then packet is dropped (implicit deny all).

         When an HTTP redirect rule matches, the NAS shall reply to the
         HTTP request with an HTTP redirect in accordance with [RFC2616]
         redirecting traffic to specific URL.

         Filter-ID (11) and NAS-Filter-Rule both define how filters are
         to be applied in the NAS. These attributes are not intended to
         be used concurrently and SHOULD NOT appear in the same RADIUS
         message. Only one type of filtering attribute must be
         processed. If a Filter-ID (11) is present, then the NAS-Filter-
         Rule MUST be ignored, if present.

      Descriptions of notable fields and keywords follow:

         "deny"      Drop packets that match the rule.

         "redirect"  Redirect packets that match the rule.

         "tunnel"    Tunnel packets that match the rule.

         "flush"     A flush rule removes all previously assigned
                     filter rules. When flush is specified, it can be
                     followed by other NAS-Filter-Rule attributes. This
                     allows for an atomic change of authorization with a
                     single RADIUS message.

         "permit inout any from any to any"
                     Special rule that matches against all traffic. This
                     allows the implicit deny at the end of a filter
                     list to be overridden.

         "in"        Is from the terminal.

         "out"       Is to the terminal.

         "inout"     Is from and to the terminal.

         ipv4-address  An IPv4 number in dotted-quad form.  Only this
                       exact IP number will match the rule.
         ipv6-address  An IPv6 number in canonical IPv6 form.  Only
                       this exact IP number will match the rule
         ipv4-address/ipv4mask
                    An IP number with a mask width of the form
                    192.0.2.0/24.  In this case, all IP numbers from
                    192.0.2.0 to 192.0.2.255 will match.

                     The bit width MUST be valid for the IP version and
                     the IP number MUST NOT have bits set beyond the
                     mask. For a match to occur, the same IP version
                     MUST be present in the packet that was used in
                     describing the IP address.  To test for a

                     particular IP version, the bits part can be set to
                     zero.

         "any"       Keyword for 0.0.0.0/0 or the IPv6 equivalent.

         "assigned"  Keyword for the address or set of addresses
                     assigned to the terminal.  For IPv4, a typical
                     first rule is often "deny in ip !assigned"

                     The sense of the match can be inverted by preceding
                     an address with the not modifier (!), causing all
                     other addresses to be matched instead.  This does
                     not affect the selection of port numbers.

         tcp-port    With the TCP, UDP and SCTP protocols, this field
                     specifies ports to match.

                     Note: The '-' notation specifies a range of ports
                     (including boundaries). Fragmented packets that
                     have a non-zero offset (i.e., not the first
                     fragment) will never match a rule that has one or
                     more port specifications.  See the "frag" keyword
                     for details on matching fragmented packets.

         log-rule    Increments rule hit counter by one every time a
                     packet matches on rule. Counters start with a zero
                     value at session start and are reset back to a zero
                     value every time a successful authorization change
                     occurs due to a CoA message being received by the
                     NAS.

      For base encapsulation rules:
         "l2:"       Prefix on any base encapsulation rule to designate
                     as rule as such.

         "l2:ether2" Keyword means any Ethernet-II (DIX Ethernet) will
                     match.

         ether2:val  Used to specify an Ethernet-II type by hexadecimal
                     number, whereby "val" is replaced by desired
                     number. Example: "l2:ether2:0x800" for IP ethertype
                     (0x0800).

         l2-rmon-str Used to specify base encapsulation per the octet
                     string format defined in [RFC2895], section 4.2.
                     Example: "l2:0.0.0.2.0.0.0.240" for Netbios over
                     LLC.

         macaddr     For base encapsulation filter rules of "l2:ether2"
                     type, the Ethernet MAC address with octet values

INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

                     separated by a "-". Example: "00-10-A4-23-19-C0".

         macaddr/mask   An Ethernet number as above with a mask width of
                     the form "00-10-A4-23-00-00/32". In this case, all
                     MAC addresses from 00-10-A4-23-00-00 to 00-10-A4-
                     23-FF-FF will match. The MAC address MUST NOT have
                     bits set beyond the mask.  The keyword "any" is
                    00-00-00-00-00-00/0.

                     The sense of the match can be inverted by preceding
                     an address with the not modifier (!), causing all
                     other addresses to be matched instead.

                     Note: macaddr nor macaddr/mask argument is not used
                     for "l2:rmon" type rules.

      For IP rules:
         "ip"        Keyword means any IP protocol will match.

         ip-proto    An IP protocol specified by number.


         "frag"      Match if the packet is a fragment and this is not
                     the first fragment of the datagram.  frag may not
                     be used in conjunction with either tcpflags or
                     TCP/UDP port specifications.

         "ipoptions" Match if the IP header contains the comma separated
                     list of options specified in spec.  The supported
                     IP options are:   ssrr (strict source route), lsrr
                     (loose source route), rr (record packet route) and
                     ts(timestamp).  The absence of a particular option
                     may be denoted with a '!'.

         "tcpoptions"   Match if the TCP header contains the comma
                     separated list of options specified in spec.  The
                     supported TCP options are:

                     mss (maximum segment size), window (tcp window
                     advertisement), sack (selective ack), ts (rfc1323
                     timestamp) and cc (rfc1644 t/tcp connection count).
                     The absence of a particular option may be denoted
                     with a '!'.

         "established"  TCP packets only.  Match packets that have the
                     RST or ACK bits set.

         "setup"     TCP packets only.  Match packets that have the SYN
                     bit set but no ACK bit.



Congdon, et al.             Informational                   [Page 17]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

         "tcpflags"  TCP packets only.  Match if the TCP header contains
                     the comma separated list of flags specified in
                     spec.  The supported TCP flags are:

                     fin, syn, rst, psh, ack and urg.  The absence of a
                     particular flag may be denoted with a '!'.  A rule
                     that contains a tcpflags specification can never
                     match a fragmented packet that has a non-zero
                     offset.  See the "frag" option for details on
                     matching fragmented packets.

         "icmptypes" ICMP packets only.  Match if the ICMP type is in
                     the list types.  The list may be specified as any
                     combination of ranges or individual types separated
                     by commas.  Both the numeric values and the
                     symbolic values listed below can be used.  The
                     supported ICMP types are:

                     echo reply (0), destination unreachable (3), source
                     quench (4), redirect (5), echo request(8), router
                     advertisement (9), router solicitation (10), time-
                     to-live exceeded (11), IP header bad (12),
                     timestamp request (13), timestamp reply (14),
                     information request (15), information reply (16),
                     address mask request (17) and address mask reply
                     (18).

      For HTTP redirection rules:
         redir_cnt   Specifies the number of HTTP redirect rule matches
                    that should transpire before removing this rule
                    from the active rule set.  Upon removal from the
                    active rule set, traffic is no longer evaluated
                    against this rule.

         redir_URL  An HTTP URL. When the 'redirect' rule matches
                    (src/dst and/or org_URL ), HTTP requests are
                    redirected to redir_URL address in accordance with
                    [RFC2616] redirection traffic to specific URL.

         org_URL    An HTTP URL. Specifies the HTTP URL against which
                    user HTTP requests will be evaluated.  If user HTTP
                    request matches org_URL, then redirection action is
                    taken.

      For base encapsulation and IP tunnel rules:
         tunnel_id  A tunnel id. When the 'tunnel' rule matches,
                    traffic is redirected over the tunnel with the
                    specified tunnel_id. Traffic can only be redirected
                    to or from named tunnels that have been established



Congdon, et al.             Informational                   [Page 18]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

                    per [RFC2868] and named using the Tunnel-
                    Assignment-ID attribute described therein.

                    The tunnel id MUST be encapsulated in double quotes
                    and use the following escape functions in case the
                    tunnel id itself contains any quotes:

                    For all occurrences of " replace with \"
                    For all occurrences of \ replace with \\

                    Example: A tunnel with the name of tunnel "ppp1"
                    would be specified as "tunnel \"pp1\"" within the
                    rule.

      A NAS that is unable to interpret or apply a deny rule MUST
      terminate the session. A NAS MAY apply deny rules of its own
      before the supplied rules, for example to protect the access
      device owner's infrastructure.

   3.  RADIUS Accounting

      This specification introduces one new RADIUS accounting attribute.

   3.1.  Acct-NAS-Filter-Rule

      Description

         Acct-NAS-Filter-Rule enables a RADIUS client to include NAS-
         Filter-Rule[TODO] rule match counters as part of the accounting
         message.


         The Acct-NAS-Filter-Rule attribute is shown below. The fields
         are transmitted from left to right:

       0                   1                   2                   3

         >=3

      String

          The first eight octets of this string are used for a 64-bit
          value of the rule counter.  The remaining octets are used to
          specify which filter rule the counter value is for.  The rule
          specification MUST conform to the syntax rules specified for
          NAS-Filter-Rule[TBD].

   4.  Table of Attributes

      The following table provides a guide to which attributes may be
      found in which kinds of packets, and in what quantity.

      The following table defines the meaning of the above table
      entries.

        0     This attribute MUST NOT be present in packet.
        0+    Zero or more instances of this attribute MAY be present in
              the packet.
        0-1   Zero or one instance of this attribute MAY be
              present in the packet.

   5.  IANA Considerations

      This document uses the RADIUS [RFC2865] namespace, see
      <http://www.iana.org/assignments/radius-types>.  Allocation of
      seven updates for the section "RADIUS Attribute Types" is
      requested. The RADIUS attributes for which values are requested
      are:

      TBD - Egress-VLANID
      TBD - Ingress-Filters
      TBD - User-Priority-Table
      TBD - NAS-Filter-Rule
      TBD - Acct-NAS-Filter-Rule

INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

   6.  Security Considerations

      Since this document describes the use of RADIUS for purposes of
      authentication, authorization, and accounting in IEEE 802.1X-
      nabled networks, it is vulnerable to all of the threats that are
      present in other RADIUS applications. For a discussion of these
      threats, see [RFC2607], [RFC3162], [RFC3579], and [RFC3580].

      This document specifies new attributes that can be included in
      existing RADIUS messages. These messages are protected using
      existing security mechanisms; see [RFC2865] and [RFC3576] for a
      more detailed description and related security considerations.

      The security mechanisms in [RFC2865] and [RFC3576] are primarily
      concerned with an outside attacker who modifies messages in
      transit or inserts new messages. They do not prevent an authorized
      RADIUS server or proxy from inserting attributes with a malicious
      purpose in message it sends.

      An attacker who compromises an authorized RADIUS server or proxy
      can use the attributes defined in this document to influence the
      behavior of the NAS in ways that previously may not have been
      possible. For example, modifications to the VLAN-related
      attributes may cause the NAS to permit access to other VLANs that
      were intended. To give another example, inserting suitable
      redirection rules to the NAS-Filter-Rule attribute may allow the
      attacker to eavesdrop or modify packets sent by a legitimate
      client.

      In general, the NAS cannot know whether the attribute values it
      receives from an authenticated and authorized server are well-
      intentioned or malicious, and thus it is not possible to
      completely protect against attacks by compromised nodes. In some
      cases, the extent of the possible attacks can be limited by
      performing more fine-grained authorization checks at the NAS.
      For instance, a NAS could be configured to accept only certain
      VLAN IDs from a certain RADIUS server/proxy, or not to accept any
      redirection rules if it is known they are not used in this
      environment.

   Appendix A - Traffic Redirection

      There are several ways to redirect the user's traffic.  Which
      method will be used depends on the capabilities available at the
      NAS and Service Provider's preference. This Appendix describes
      various methods to redirect user traffic by using the new
      attributes outlined in this document in conjunction with existing
      attributes, which are:

            1) Tunneling; and
            2) HTTP Redirection;

      For each method we describe how redirection is done at service
      initiation and mid-session.  We also describe how redirection is
      removed when it is no longer desired.


   A.1  Tunneling

      User traffic can be redirected by tunneling the user's traffic to
      an alternate location. Tunneling will typically redirect all of
      the user's traffic for the Service.  When tunneling is used to
      redirect all the traffic, then filtering may not be necessary.

   A.1.1  Service Initiation

      Redirect using tunnels at service initiation requires that the
      RADIUS server send the appropriate [RFC2868] tunnel attributes and
      NAS-Filter-Rule attributes to the NAS.  The [RFC2868] tunnel
      attributes describe the tunnel endpoint and the type of tunnel to
      construct.  The 'tunnel <tunnel_id>' option for the NAS-Filter-
      Rule allows the specification of a traffic rule for which to
      redirect traffic to a named tunnel.

   A.1.2  Mid-session Tunnel Redirection

      Redirection of traffic using tunnels mid-session involves sending
      the tunnel attributes as per [RFC2868] to the NAS using Change-of-
      Authorization (CoA) message.  The operation is described in
      [RFC3576].  Careful attention should be paid to the security
      issues in [RFC3576].

      Note that if the session is already tunneled (eg.  Mobile-IP) then




Congdon, et al.             Informational                   [Page 24]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

      the CoA message with a new tunnel specification can be sent to the
      NAS or alternatively the redirection can occur at the tunnel
      endpoint (the Home Agent) using any one of these methods.

   A.1.3  Tunnel Redirection Removal

      If the normal mode for the session was to tunnel the session and
      redirection was sent to the NAS, the RADIUS Server can send the
      original tunnel attributes to the NAS in a CoA message.  The NAS
      will tear down the tunnel and establish a connection back to the
      original tunnel endpoint.

      However, if the normal mode for the session is not to use
      tunneling then there is a problem because RADIUS does not have a
      mechanism whereby it can de-tunnel.  Receiving a CoA message
      without tunnel attributes would not have an effect on an existing
      tunnel.  In order to de-tunnel the session, the RADIUS server has
      to send the NAS a CoA message with Service-Type(6) set to
      "Authorize-Only" causing the NAS to perform a re-Authorization.
      In response to the re-Authorization, the RADIUS server will send
      an Access-Accept packet without the tunneling information.  Upon
      receiving the corresponding Access-Accept packet the NAS MUST
      apply the new authorization attributes.  If these do not contain
      tunnel attributes, then the NAS MUST tear down the tunnel.

   A.1.4 Tunnel Redirection Examples

      The following examples illustrate how traffic flows when subjected
      to a NAS-Filter-Rule using tunnel redirection.  In these
      scenarios, the following notation is used to represent traffic
      flows:

      ------>  Flow in one direction
      <----->  Flow in two directions
      ======>  Flow in a tunnel in one direction
      <=====>  and in both directions


      A RADIUS server that wishes all IP traffic to flow between the
      client and a selected redirection destination will issue an
      Access-Accept that contains the specification for the tunnel using
      the attributes defined by RFC 2868 and an NAS-Filter-Rule
      attribute using the tunnel action and arguments.

      An example NAS-Filter-Rule will look like:

      tunnel "t1" in ip from assigned to any





Congdon, et al.             Informational                   [Page 25]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

      This will cause all traffic that flows from the client to any
      destination to be tunneled over the named tunnel "t1" to the
      tunnel endpoint (TEP).

         +-------+            +------+         +------+       +------+
         |       |            |      |         |Tunnel|       |      |
         |client +<---------->+ NAS  +<==t1===>+ End  +<----->+ Dest |
         |       |            |      |         |Point |       |      |
         +-------+            +------+         +------+       +------+

      The direction argument takes the values of "in", "out" or "inout"
      and is important because it controls how information is routed.
      The following diagram demonstrates how traffic is routed. In all
      these diagrams time is increasing as we proceed down the page.

      When rule direction is "in":

         client       NAS       TEP    DESTINATION
           |           |         |          |
           |---------->|===t1===>|--------->|
           |           |         |          |
           |<----------|<-------------------|  (flows directly to NAS)
           |           |         |          |

      The inbound traffic from the client matches the specified filter
      rule and the IP packet is placed in the tunnel to the TEP. The TEP
      forwards the packet to the Destination using the destination IP
      address in the packet header. Note that the source address of the
      packet is the address assigned at the NAS. Therefore if the
      destination were to reply to the packet it would use the NAS
      source address and the packet would flow directly to the NAS and
      to the client bypassing the TEP.  The Home network would use this
      capability if it was only interested in metering or seeing the
      inbound traffic from the client.

      However, if the home network wanted to see the traffic in both
      directions it could deploy a NAT function at the TEP.

      Here is the flow when the TEP is acting like a NAT:

         client       NAS       TEP/NAT DESTINATION
           |           |         |          |
           |---------->|===t1===>|--------->|
           |           |         |          |
           |<----------|<==t1====|<---------|


      The client establishes a connection to the Destination, but the
      TEP acting as NAT, changes the source address of the IP packet(as
      NATs do) to that of the TEP/NAT.  Now any replies from the


Congdon, et al.             Informational                   [Page 26]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

      Destination are sent to the TEP/NAT.  The TEP/NAT then forwards
      these packets to the client through the NAS.

      When the TEP is acting as a NAT, using the direction argument "in"
      is important. The direction argument set to "out" will have no
      effect on traffic coming from the tunnel since all traffic to the
      client should come from the TEP/NAT inside the tunnel.  The
      direction argument set to "inout" will have the same effect as if
      it were set to "in".

      The TEP/NAT forwards all traffic for the client into the tunnel to
      the NAS. The NAS always forwards any egressing traffic from the
      tunnel to the client. It does not apply any redirection rules on
      traffic egressing a tunnel. The NAS does not care whether the TEP
      is transparent or is acting as a NAT.

   A.2  HTTP Redirection

      Another method of redirection is at the application layer,
      specifically the HTTP layer.  An HTTP aware NAS redirects traffic
      by issuing an HTTP Redirect response causing the users browser to
      navigate to an alternate Web Portal.

      The call flow associated with performing redirection at the HTTP
      layer is very similar with the call flow associated with
      redirection done at the IP layer.

      The same NAS-Filter-Rule(TBD) attribute described above is used to
      convey the redirection rules to use for HTTP redirection.  HTTP
      redirection rules within the NAS-Filter-Rule attribute supports
      the encoding of a redirection URL to apply when a rule is matched.

   A.2.1  Service Initiation

      As with previous call flows, the RADIUS MAY send multiple HTTP
      redirect or filtering rules within a NAS-Filter-Rule(TBD)
      attribute to the NAS in the Access-Accept message.

   A.2.2  Mid-session HTTP Redirection

      If HTTP redirection is required to be applied to a service that
      has already been started then the RADIUS server can push the
      redirection rules, and optionally the filter rules, to the NAS
      within a NAS-Filter-Rule(TBD) attribute using a CoA message. The
      NAS will then commence to apply the redirection rules and/or the
      filter rules.

      Alternatively, the RADIUS server can request that the NAS re-
      authorize the session using the procedures defined in [RFC3576].
      The RADIUS server responds with an Access-Accept message (with


Congdon, et al.             Informational                   [Page 27]


INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

      Service-Type(6) set to "Authorize Only" that will contain the
      redirection and optionally filtering rules within a NAS-Filter-
      Rule(TBD) attribute.

   A.2.3  HTTP Redirection Removal

      The RADIUS serve can turn HTTP redirection off mid-session in two
      way. It can push new redirection rules within a NAS-Filter-
      Rule(TBD) attribute using a CoA message or it can send the NAS a
      CoA message requesting it to re-authorize.

      When using CoA message to return the redirection and filtering
      back to "normal," there needs to be either a filter rule (or
      filter-id) or redirection rule that corresponds to the "normal"
      state. If normally the session did not have any filter and or
      redirection rules applied, the RADIUS server can send a NAS-
      Filter-Rule(TBD) with the action of "flush" in the CoA message.
      This action will cause all the filter rules and redirection rules
      previously assigned to the session to be removed.

   A.3  Accounting

      Every time a session is redirected and every time the redirection
      is reverted back a new session is created and the old one is
      terminated. Therefore the NAS MUST generate and Accounting-
      Request(Stop) for the old session and an Accounting-Request(Start)
      for the new session.

   A.4  Example Scenarios

      The following two examples illustrate the user's experience when
      being redirected.

      For the first example assume an IEEE 8021X environment, whereby a
      user connects to the enterprise LAN and initiates an
      authentication handshake.  As part of the overall authentication
      process, it is also possible to pass endpoint state such as patch
      level, virus signature status, etc., all of which can be verified
      by a back-end server for policy compliancy and alter the
      authentication and authorization decision. In instances that an
      end-host is not in compliancy, the NAS may be instructed to limit
      network access in some fashion (i.e. quarantine) and limit network
      access to remediation services and a web-based information site.
      A user may sense degraded network performance and open a web
      session, which the NAS would redirect to the web-based information
      site for compliancy status, remediation actions, etc.

      For the second example assume an ISP environment, whereby a
      prepaid user is roaming the net in their hotel room over WiFi is
      to be Hot-lined because their account has no more funds. The

INTERNET-DRAFT VLAN, Priority, and Filtering Attributes    9 June 2005

      user's Service Provider instructs the NAS to block all traffic,
      and redirect any port 80 traffic to the Service Provider's Prepaid
      Portal.  Upon detecting that there is no service, the user
      launches his browser and regardless of which web site is being
      accessed the browser traffic will arrive at the Prepaid Portal
      which will then return a page back to the subscriber indicating
      that he needs to replenish his account.

   Appendix B - NAS-Filter-Rule Filter Examples

      This appendix presents a variety of filter examples utilizing the
      syntax definition described in section 3.5

      Example #1: Permit all user traffic, regardless of type.

         permit inout any from any to any

      Example #2: Permit only L2 traffic coming from and going to a
      user's Ethernet MAC address. Block all other traffic. Assume
      user's MAC address is 00-10-A4-23-19-C0.

         permit in l2:ether2 from 00-10-A4-23-19-C0 to any
         permit out l2:ether2 from any to 00-10-A4-23-19-C0

      Example #3: Tunnel all L2 traffic coming from and going to a user.
      Assume tunnel name is: tunnel "1234".

         permit tunnel "tunnel \"1234\"" inout l2:ether2 from any to any

      Example #4: Permit only L3 traffic coming and going to from a
      user's IP address. Block all other traffic. Assume user's IP
      address is 192.0.2.128.

         permit in ip from 192.0.2.128 to any
         permit out ip from any to 192.0.2.128

      Example #5: Permit only L3 traffic coming and going to the user's
      assigned IP address. Block all other traffic.

         permit in ip from assigned to any
         permit out ip from any to assigned

      Example #6: Allow user to generate ARP requests, DNS requests, and
      HTTP (port 80) requests. Assume user's MAC address is 00-10-A4-23-
      19-C0 and IP address is 192.0.2.128.

         permit in l2:ether:0x0806 from 00-10-A4-23-19-C0 to any
         permit out l2:ether:0x806 from any to 00-10-A4-23-19-C0
         permit in 17 from 192.0.2.168 to any 53
         permit out 17 from any 53 to 192.0.2.168

      Example #7: Allow user to generate ARP requests, DNS requests, and
      HTTP (port 80) requests, any of which are redirected to
      http://www.foo.org. Assume user's MAC address is 00-10-A4-23-19-C0
      and IP address is 192.0.2.128.

         permit in l2:ether:0x0806 from 00-10-A4-23-19-C0 to any
         permit out l2:ether:0x806 from any to 00-10-A4-23-19-C0
         permit in 17 from 192.0.2.168 to any 53
         permit out 17 from any 53 to 192.0.2.168
         redirect http://www.foo.org in from 192.0.2.168 to any 80

      Example #8: Allow user to generate ARP requests, DNS requests, and
      HTTP (port 80) requests, of which only requests to
      http://www.foo.org are redirected to http://www.goo.org. Assume
      user's MAC address is 00-10-A4-23-19-C0 and IP address is
      192.0.2.128

         permit in l2:ether:0x0806 from 00-10-A4-23-19-C0 to any
         permit out l2:ether:0x806 from any to 00-10-A4-23-19-C0
         permit in 17 from 192.0.2.168 to any 53
         permit out 17 from any 53 to 192.0.2.168
         redirect http://www.goo.org in from 192.0.2.168 to any 80
