3.  Abstract

This   memo   defines  a  set  of  extensions  which  instrument  RADIUS
authentication client functions. These extensions represent a portion of
the  Management  Information  Base (MIB) for use with network management
protocols in the Internet community.  Using  these  extensions  IP-based
management stations can manage RADIUS authentication clients.

INTERNET-DRAFT      RADIUS Authentication Client MIB     2 February 1999


4.  Introduction

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for
use with network management protocols in  the  Internet  community.   In
particular,  it  describes  managed  objects  used  for  managing RADIUS
authentication clients.

Today a wide range of network devices, including routers and NASes,  act
as  RADIUS authentication clients in order to provide authentication and
authorization services. As a result, the effective management of  RADIUS
authentication clients is of considerable importance.


5.  The SNMP Management Framework

The   SNMP   Management  Framework  presently  consists  of  five  major
components:

    o   An overall architecture, described in RFC 2271 [1].

    o   Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for  the
        purpose  of  management.  The first version of this Structure of
        Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1  and  described  in
        RFC 1155 [2], RFC 1212 [3] and RFC 1215 [4]. The second version,
        called SMIv2, is described in RFC 1902 [5], RFC 1903 [6] and RFC
        1904 [7].

    o   Message  protocols  for transferring management information. The
        first version of the SNMP message protocol is called SNMPv1  and
        described  in RFC 1157 [8]. A second version of the SNMP message
        protocol, which is not an Internet standards track protocol,  is
        called  SNMPv2c and described in RFC 1901 [9] and RFC 1906 [10].
        The third version of the message protocol is called  SNMPv3  and
        described in RFC 1906 [10], RFC 2272 [11] and RFC 2274 [12].

    o   Protocol  operations  for  accessing management information. The
        first set of protocol operations and associated PDU  formats  is
        described  in  RFC 1157 [8]. A second set of protocol operations
        and associated PDU formats is described in RFC 1905 [13].

    o   A set of fundamental applications described in RFC 2273 [14] and
        the  view-based  access  control mechanism described in RFC 2275
        [15].

Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the
Management  Information  Base  or  MIB.   Objects in the MIB are defined
using the mechanisms defined in the SMI.

INTERNET-DRAFT      RADIUS Authentication Client MIB     2 February 1999


This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2.  A  MIB
conforming  to  the  SMIv1  can  be  produced  through  the  appropriate
translations.  The  resulting  translated  MIB  must   be   semantically
equivalent,  except  where  objects  or  events  are  omitted because no
translation is  possible  (use  of  Counter64).  Some  machine  readable
information  in  SMIv2  will  be  converted into textual descriptions in
SMIv1 during the translation process.  However,  this  loss  of  machine
readable  information  is  not considered to change the semantics of the
MIB.


6.  Overview

The RADIUS authentication protocol,  described  in  [16],  distinguishes
between   the  client  function  and  the  server  function.  In  RADIUS
authentication, clients send Access-Requests,  and  servers  reply  with
Access-Accepts,  Access-Rejects,  and  Access-Challenges.  Typically NAS
devices implement the client function, and thus  would  be  expected  to
implement   the   RADIUS   authentication   client   MIB,  while  RADIUS
authentication servers implement the server function, and thus would  be
expected to implement the RADIUS authentication server MIB.

However,  it  is  possible for a RADIUS authentication entity to perform
both client and server functions. For example, a RADIUS proxy may act as
a   server   to   one  or  more  RADIUS  authentication  clients,  while
simultaneously acting  as  an  authentication  client  to  one  or  more
authentication  servers.  In such situations, it is expected that RADIUS
entities combining client and server functionality will support both the
client and server MIBs.


6.1.  Selected objects
This MIB module contains two scalars as well as a single table:

(1)  the RADIUS Authentication Server Table contains one row for each
     RADIUS authentication server that the client shares a secret with.

Each  entry  in  the RADIUS Authentication Server Table includes fifteen
columns presenting a view of the activity of the  RADIUS  authentication
client.

9.  Security considerations

There are no management objects defined in this MIB  that  have  a  MAX-
ACCESS  clause  of  read-write  and/or  read-create.  So, if this MIB is
implemented correctly, then there is no risk that an intruder can  alter
or  create  any  management  objects  of  this  MIB  via direct SNMP SET
operations.

There are a number of managed objects  in  this  MIB  that  may  contain
sensitive information. These are:

radiusAuthServerAddress
          This  can  be  used  to  determine  the  address of the RADIUS
          authentication server with which the client is  communicating.
          This  information could be useful in mounting an attack on the
          authentication server.

radiusAuthClientServerPortNumber
          This can be used to determine the port  number  on  which  the
          RADIUS  authentication  client  is  sending.  This information
          could be useful in impersonating the client in order  to  send
          data to the authentication server.

It  is  thus  important  to control even GET access to these objects and
possibly to even encrypt the values of these object  when  sending  them
over  the  network  via SNMP.  Not all versions of SNMP provide features
for such a secure environment.

SNMPv1 by itself is not a secure environment. Even if the network itself
is secure (for example by using IPSec), there is no control as to who on
the   secure   network   is    allowed    to    access    and    GET/SET
(read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB.

It  is  recommended that the implementers consider the security features
as provided by the SNMPv3 framework. Specifically, the use of the  User-
based  Security  Model  RFC  2274 [12] and the View-based Access Control
Model RFC 2275 [15] is  recommended.   Using  these  security  features,
customer/users  can  give access to the objects only to those principals

(users) that have legitimate rights to GET or SET (change/create/delete)
