                   The Entity Attestation Token (EAT)
                         draft-ietf-rats-eat-07

Abstract

   An Entity Attestation Token (EAT) provides a signed (attested) set of
   claims that describe state and characteristics of an entity,
   typically a device like a phone or an IoT device.  These claims are
   used by a relying party to determine how much it wishes to trust the
   entity.

   An EAT is either a CWT or JWT with some attestation-oriented claims.
   To a large degree, all this document does is extend CWT and JWT.

1.  Introduction

   Remote device attestation is a fundamental service that allows a
   remote device such as a mobile phone, an Internet-of-Things (IoT)
   device, or other endpoint to prove itself to a relying party, a
   server or a service.  This allows the relying party to know some
   characteristics about the device and decide whether it trusts the
   device.

   Remote attestation is a fundamental service that can underlie other
   protocols and services that need to know about the trustworthiness of
   the device before proceeding.  One good example is biometric
   authentication where the biometric matching is done on the device.
   The relying party needs to know that the device is one that is known

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   to do biometric matching correctly.  Another example is content
   protection where the relying party wants to know the device will
   protect the data.  This generalizes on to corporate enterprises that
   might want to know that a device is trustworthy before allowing
   corporate data to be accessed by it.

   The notion of attestation here is large and may include, but is not
   limited to the following:

   o  Proof of the make and model of the device hardware (HW)

   o  Proof of the make and model of the device processor, particularly
      for security-oriented chips

   o  Measurement of the software (SW) running on the device

   o  Configuration and state of the device

   o  Environmental characteristics of the device such as its GPS
      location

   TODO: mention use for Attestation Evidence and Results.

1.1.  CWT, JWT and UCCS

   For flexibility and ease of imlpementation in a wide variety of
   environments, EATs can be either CBOR [RFC8949] or JSON [ECMAScript]
   format.  This specification simultaneously describes both formats.

   An EAT is either a CWT as defined in [RFC8392], a UCCS as defined in
   [UCCS.Draft], or a JWT as defined in [RFC7519].  This specification
   extends those specifications with additional claims for attestation.

   The identification of a protocol element as an EAT, whether CBOR or
   JSON format, follows the general conventions used by CWT, JWT and
   UCCS.  Largely this depends on the protocol carrying the EAT.  In
   some cases it may be by content type (e.g., MIME type).  In other
   cases it may be through use of CBOR tags.  There is no fixed
   mechanism across all use cases.

1.2.  CDDL

   This specification uses CDDL, [RFC8610], as the primary formalism to
   define each claim.  The implementor then interprets the CDDL to come
   to either the CBOR [RFC8949] or JSON [ECMAScript] representation.  In
   the case of JSON, Appendix E of [RFC8610] is followed.  Additional
   rules are given in Section 6.3.2 of this document where Appendix E is
   insufficient.  (Note that this is not to define a general means to



Mandyam, et al.          Expires August 7, 2021                 [Page 5]


Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   translate between CBOR and JSON, but only to define enough such that
   the claims defined in this document can be rendered unambiguously in
   JSON).

   The CWT specification was authored before CDDL was available and did
   not use it.  This specification includes a CDDL definition of most of
   what is described in [RFC8392].

1.3.  Entity Overview

   An "entity" can be any device or device subassembly ("submodule")
   that can generate its own attestation in the form of an EAT.  The
   attestation should be cryptographically verifiable by the EAT
   consumer.  An EAT at the device-level can be composed of several
   submodule EAT's.  It is assumed that any entity that can create an
   EAT does so by means of a dedicated root-of-trust (RoT).

   Modern devices such as a mobile phone have many different execution
   environments operating with different security levels.  For example,
   it is common for a mobile phone to have an "apps" environment that
   runs an operating system (OS) that hosts a plethora of downloadable
   apps.  It may also have a TEE (Trusted Execution Environment) that is
   distinct, isolated, and hosts security-oriented functionality like
   biometric authentication.  Additionally, it may have an eSE (embedded
   Secure Element) - a high security chip with defenses against HW
   attacks that can serve as a RoT.  This device attestation format
   allows the attested data to be tagged at a security level from which
   it originates.  In general, any discrete execution environment that
   has an identifiable security level can be considered an entity.

1.4.  EAT Operating Models

   TODO: Rewrite (or eliminate) this section in light of the RATS
   architecture draft.

   At least the following three participants exist in all EAT operating
   models.  Some operating models have additional participants.

   The Entity.  This is the phone, the IoT device, the sensor, the sub-
      assembly or such that the attestation provides information about.

   The Manufacturer.  The company that made the entity.  This may be a
      chip vendor, a circuit board module vendor or a vendor of finished
      consumer products.

   The Relying Party.  The server, service or company that makes use of
      the information in the EAT about the entity.

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   In all operating models, the manufacturer provisions some secret
   attestation key material (AKM) into the entity during manufacturing.
   This might be during the manufacturer of a chip at a fabrication
   facility (fab) or during final assembly of a consumer product or any
   time in between.  This attestation key material is used for signing
   EATs.

   In all operating models, hardware and/or software on the entity
   create an EAT of the format described in this document.  The EAT is
   always signed by the attestation key material provisioned by the
   manufacturer.

   In all operating models, the relying party must end up knowing that
   the signature on the EAT is valid and consistent with data from
   claims in the EAT.  This can happen in many different ways.  Here are
   some examples.

   o  The EAT is transmitted to the relying party.  The relying party
      gets corresponding key material (e.g. a root certificate) from the
      manufacturer.  The relying party performs the verification.

   o  The EAT is transmitted to the relying party.  The relying party
      transmits the EAT to a verification service offered by the
      manufacturer.  The server returns the validated claims.

   o  The EAT is transmitted directly to a verification service, perhaps
      operated by the manufacturer or perhaps by another party.  It
      verifies the EAT and makes the validated claims available to the
      relying party.  It may even modify the claims in some way and re-
      sign the EAT (with a different signing key).

   All these operating models are supported and there is no preference
   of one over the other.  It is important to support this variety of
   operating models to generally facilitate deployment and to allow for
   some special scenarios.  One special scenario has a validation
   service that is monetized, most likely by the manufacturer.  In
   another, a privacy proxy service processes the EAT before it is
   transmitted to the relying party.  In yet another, symmetric key
   material is used for signing.  In this case the manufacturer should
   perform the verification, because any release of the key material
   would enable a participant other than the entity to create valid
   signed EATs.

1.5.  What is Not Standardized

   The following is not standardized for EAT, just the same they are not
   standardized for CWT or JWT.

1.5.1.  Transmission Protocol

   EATs may be transmitted by any protocol the same as CWTs and JWTs.
   For example, they might be added in extension fields of other
   protocols, bundled into an HTTP header, or just transmitted as files.
   This flexibility is intentional to allow broader adoption.  This
   flexibility is possible because EAT's are self-secured with signing
   (and possibly additionally with encryption and anti-replay).  The
   transmission protocol is not required to fulfill any additional
   security requirements.

   For certain devices, a direct connection may not exist between the
   EAT-producing device and the Relying Party.  In such cases, the EAT
   should be protected against malicious access.  The use of COSE and
   JOSE allows for signing and encryption of the EAT.  Therefore, even
   if the EAT is conveyed through intermediaries between the device and
   Relying Party, such intermediaries cannot easily modify the EAT
   payload or alter the signature.

1.5.2.  Signing Scheme

   The term "signing scheme" is used to refer to the system that
   includes end-end process of establishing signing attestation key
   material in the entity, signing the EAT, and verifying it.  This
   might involve key IDs and X.509 certificate chains or something
   similar but different.  The term "signing algorithm" refers just to
   the algorithm ID in the COSE signing structure.  No particular
   signing algorithm or signing scheme is required by this standard.

   There are three main implementation issues driving this.  First,
   secure non-volatile storage space in the entity for the attestation
   key material may be highly limited, perhaps to only a few hundred
   bits, on some small IoT chips.  Second, the factory cost of
   provisioning key material in each chip or device may be high, with
   even millisecond delays adding to the cost of a chip.  Third,
   privacy-preserving signing schemes like ECDAA (Elliptic Curve Direct
   Anonymous Attestation) are complex and not suitable for all use
   cases.

   Over time to faciliate interoperability, some signing schemes may be
   defined in EAT profiles or other documents either in the IETF or
   outside.

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.

   This document reuses terminology from JWT [RFC7519], COSE [RFC8152],
   and CWT [RFC8392].

   Claim Name.  The human-readable name used to identify a claim.

   Claim Key.  The CBOR map key or JSON name used to identify a claim.

   Claim Value.  The value portion of the claim.  A claim value can be
      any CBOR data item or JSON value.

   CWT Claims Set.  The CBOR map or JSON object that contains the claims
      conveyed by the CWT or JWT.

   Attestation Key Material (AKM).  The key material used to sign the
      EAT token.  If it is done symmetrically with HMAC, then this is a
      simple symmetric key.  If it is done with ECC, such as an IEEE
      DevID [IDevID], then this is the private part of the EC key pair.
      If ECDAA is used, (e.g., as used by Enhanced Privacy ID, i.e.
      EPID) then it is the key material needed for ECDAA.

3.  The Claims

   This section describes new claims defined for attestation.  It also
   mentions several claims defined by CWT and JWT that are particularly
   important for EAT.

   Note also: * Any claim defined for CWT or JWT may be used in an EAT
   including those in the CWT [IANA.CWT.Claims] and JWT IANA
   [IANA.JWT.Claims] claims registries.

   o  All claims are optional

   o  No claims are mandatory

   o  All claims that are not understood by implementations MUST be
      ignored

   There are no default values or meanings assigned to absent claims
   other than they are not reported.  The reason for a claim's absence
   may be the implementation not supporting the claim, an inability to
   determine its value, or a preference to report in a different way
   such as a proprietary claim.

   CDDL along with text descriptions is used to define each claim
   indepdent of encoding.  Each claim is defined as a CDDL group (the

   group is a general aggregation and type definition feature of CDDL).
   In the encoding section Section 6, the CDDL groups turn into CBOR map
   entries and JSON name/value pairs.

   TODO: add paragraph here about use for Attestation Evidence and for
   Results.

3.1.  Token ID Claim (cti and jti)

   CWT defines the "cti" claim.  JWT defines the "jti" claim.  These are
   equivalent to each other in EAT and carry a unique token identifier
   as they do in JWT and CWT.  They may be used to defend against re use
   of the token but are distinct from the nonce that is used by the
   relying party to guarantee freshness and defend against replay.

3.2.  Timestamp claim (iat)

   The "iat" claim defined in CWT and JWT is used to indicate the date-
   of-creation of the token, the time at which the claims are collected
   and the token is composed and signed.

   The data for some claims may be held or cached for some period of
   time before the token is created.  This period may be long, even
   days.  Examples are measurements taken at boot or a geographic
   position fix taken the last time a satellite signal was received.
   There are individual timestamps associated with these claims to
   indicate their age is older than the "iat" timestamp.

   CWT allows the use floating-point for this claim.  EAT disallows the
   use of floating-point.  No token may contain an iat claim in float-
   point format.  Any recipient of a token with a floating-point format
   iat claim may consider it an error.  A 64-bit integer representation
   of epoch time can represent a range of +/- 500 billion years, so the
   only point of a floating-point timestamp is to have precession
   greater than one second.  This is not needed for EAT.

3.3.  Nonce Claim (nonce)

   All EATs should have a nonce to prevent replay attacks.  The nonce is
   generated by the relying party, the end consumer of the token.  It is
   conveyed to the entity over whatever transport is in use before the
   token is generated and then included in the token as the nonce claim.

   This documents the nonce claim for registration in the IANA CWT
   claims registry.  This is equivalent to the JWT nonce claim that is
   already registered.

   The nonce must be at least 8 bytes (64 bits) as fewer are unlikely to
   be secure.  A maximum of 64 bytes is set to limit the memory a
   constrained implementation uses.  This size range is not set for the
   already-registered JWT nonce, but it should follow this size
   recommendation when used in an EAT.

   Multiple nonces are allowed to accommodate multistage verification
   and consumption.

   nonce-type = bstr .size (8..64)

   nonce-claim = (
       nonce => nonce-type / [ 2* nonce-type ]
   )

3.4.  Universal Entity ID Claim (ueid)

   UEID's identify individual manufactured entities / devices such as a
   mobile phone, a water meter, a Bluetooth speaker or a networked
   security camera.  It may identify the entire device or a submodule or
   subsystem.  It does not identify types, models or classes of devices.
   It is akin to a serial number, though it does not have to be
   sequential.

   UEID's must be universally and globally unique across manufacturers
   and countries.  UEIDs must also be unique across protocols and
   systems, as tokens are intended to be embedded in many different
   protocols and systems.  No two products anywhere, even in completely
   different industries made by two different manufacturers in two
   different countries should have the same UEID (if they are not global
   and universal in this way, then relying parties receiving them will
   have to track other characteristics of the device to keep devices
   distinct between manufacturers).

   There are privacy considerations for UEID's.  See Section 8.1.

   The UEID should be permanent.  It should never change for a given
   device / entity.  In addition, it should not be reprogrammable.
   UEID's are variable length.  All implementations MUST be able to
   receive UEID's that are 33 bytes long (1 type byte and 256 bits).
   The recommended maximum sent is also 33 bytes.

   When the entity constructs the UEID, the first byte is a type and the
   following bytes the ID for that type.  Several types are allowed to
   accommodate different industries and different manufacturing

   UEID's are not designed for direct use by humans (e.g., printing on
   the case of a device), so no textual representation is defined.

   The consumer (the relying party) of a UEID MUST treat a UEID as a
   completely opaque string of bytes and not make any use of its
   internal structure.  For example, they should not use the OUI part of
   a type 0x02 UEID to identify the manufacturer of the device.  Instead

   they should use the oemid claim that is defined elsewhere.  The
   reasons for this are:

   o  UEIDs types may vary freely from one manufacturer to the next.

   o  New types of UEIDs may be created.  For example, a type 0x07 UEID
      may be created based on some other manufacturer registration
      scheme.

   o  Device manufacturers are allowed to change from one type of UEID
      to another anytime they want.  For example, they may find they can
      optimize their manufacturing by switching from type 0x01 to type
      0x02 or vice versa.  The main requirement on the manufacturer is
      that UEIDs be universally unique.

3.6.  OEM Identification by IEEE (oemid)

   The IEEE operates a global registry for MAC addresses and company
   IDs.  This claim uses that database to identify OEMs.  The contents
   of the claim may be either an IEEE MA-L, MA-M, MA-S or an IEEE CID
   [IEEE.RA].  An MA-L, formerly known as an OUI, is a 24-bit value used
   as the first half of a MAC address.  MA-M similarly is a 28-bit value
   uses as the first part of a MAC address, and MA-S, formerly known as
   OUI-36, a 36-bit value.  Many companies already have purchased one of
   these.  A CID is also a 24-bit value from the same space as an MA-L,
   but not for use as a MAC address.  IEEE has published Guidelines for
   Use of EUI, OUI, and CID [OUI.Guide] and provides a lookup services
   [OUI.Lookup]

   Companies that have more than one of these IDs or MAC address blocks
   should pick one and prefer that for all their devices.

   Commonly, these are expressed in Hexadecimal Representation
   [IEEE.802-2001] also called the Canonical format.  When this claim is
   encoded the order of bytes in the bstr are the same as the order in
   the Hexadecimal Representation.  For example, an MA-L like "AC-DE-48"
   would be encoded in 3 bytes with values 0xAC, 0xDE, 0x48.  For JSON
   encoded tokens, this is further base64url encoded.

   Number or most commonly as a bar code.  This claim is the ASCII text
   representation of actual digits often printed with a bar code.  Use

3.9.  The Security Level Claim (security-level)

   This claim characterizes the device/entity ability to defend against
   attacks aimed at capturing the signing key, forging claims and at
   forging EATs.  This is done by defining four security levels as
   described below.  This is similar to the key protection types defined
   by the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance [FIDO.Registry].

   These claims describe security environment and countermeasures
   available on the end-entity / client device where the attestation key
   reside and the claims originate.

   1 - Unrestricted  There is some expectation that implementor will
      protect the attestation signing keys at this level.  Otherwise the
      EAT provides no meaningful security assurances.

   2- Restricted  Entities at this level should not be general-purpose
      operating environments that host features such as app download
      systems, web browsers and complex productivity applications.  It
      is akin to the Secure Restricted level (see below) without the
      security orientation.  Examples include a Wi-Fi subsystem, an IoT
      camera, or sensor device.

   3 - Secure Restricted  Entities at this level must meet the criteria
      defined by FIDO Allowed Restricted Operating Environments
      [FIDO.AROE].  Examples include TEE's and schemes using
      virtualization-based security.  Like the FIDO security goal,

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


      security at this level is aimed at defending well against large-
      scale network / remote attacks against the device.

   4 - Hardware  Entities at this level must include substantial defense
      against physical or electrical attacks against the device itself.
      It is assumed any potential attacker has captured the device and
      can disassemble it.  Example include TPMs and Secure Elements.

   The entity should claim the highest security level it achieves and no
   higher.  This set is not extensible so as to provide a common
   interoperable description of security level to the relying party.  If
   a particular implementation considers this claim to be inadequate, it
   can define its own proprietary claim.  It may consider including both
   this claim as a coarse indication of security and its own proprietary
   claim as a refined indication.

   This claim is not intended as a replacement for a proper end-device
   security certification schemes such as those based on FIPS 140
   [FIPS-140] or those based on Common Criteria [Common.Criteria].  The
   claim made here is solely a self-claim made by the Entity Originator.

3.10.  Secure Boot Claim (secure-boot)

   considered enabled when base software, the firmware and operating
   system, are under control of the entity manufacturer identified in
   the oemid claimd described in Section 3.6.  This may because the
   software is in ROM or because it is cryptographically authenticated
   or some combination of the two or other.

3.11.  Debug Status Claim (debug-status)

   This applies to system-wide or submodule-wide debug facilities of the
   target device / submodule like JTAG and diagnostic hardware built
   into chips.  It applies to any software debug facilities related to
   root, operating system or privileged software that allow system-wide
   memory inspection, tracing or modification of non-system software
   like user mode applications.

   This characterization assumes that debug facilities can be enabled
   and disabled in a dynamic way or be disabled in some permanent way
   such that no enabling is possible.  An example of dynamic enabling is
   one where some authentication is required to enable debugging.  An
   example of permanent disabling is blowing a hardware fuse in a chip.
   The specific type of the mechanism is not taken into account.  For
   example, it does not matter if authentication is by a global password
   or by per-device public keys.

   As with all claims, the absence of the debug level claim means it is
   not reported.  A conservative interpretation might assume the Not
   Disabled state.  It could however be that it is reported in a
   proprietary claim.

   This claim is not extensible so as to provide a common interoperable
   description of debug status to the relying party.  If a particular
   implementation considers this claim to be inadequate, it can define
   its own proprietary claim.  It may consider including both this claim
   as a coarse indication of debug status and its own proprietary claim
   as a refined indication.

   The higher levels of debug disabling requires that all debug
   disabling of the levels below it be in effect.  Since the lowest
   level requires that all of the target's debug be currently disabled,
   all other levels require that too.

   There is no inheritance of claims from a submodule to a superior
   module or vice versa.  There is no assumption, requirement or
   guarantee that the target of a superior module encompasses the
   targets of submodules.  Thus, every submodule must explicitly
   describe its own debug state.  The verifier or relying party
   receiving an EAT cannot assume that debug is turned off in a
   submodule because there is a claim indicating it is turned off in a
   superior module.

   An individual target device / submodule may have multiple debug
   facilities.  The use of plural in the description of the states
   refers to that, not to any aggregation or inheritance.

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   The architecture of some chips or devices may be such that a debug
   facility operates for the whole chip or device.  If the EAT for such
   a chip includes submodules, then each submodule should independently
   report the status of the whole-chip or whole-device debug facility.
   This is the only way the relying party can know the debug status of
   the submodules since there is no inheritance.

3.11.1.  Enabled

   If any debug facility, even manufacturer hardware diagnostics, is
   currently enabled, then this level must be indicated.

3.11.2.  Disabled

   This level indicates all debug facilities are currently disabled.  It
   may be possible to enable them in the future, and it may also be
   possible that they were enabled in the past after the target device/
   sub-system booted/started, but they are currently disabled.

3.11.3.  Disabled Since Boot

   This level indicates all debug facilities are currently disabled and
   have been so since the target device/sub-system booted/started.

3.11.4.  Disabled Permanently

   This level indicates all non-manufacturer facilities are permanently
   disabled such that no end user or developer cannot enable them.  Only
   the manufacturer indicated in the OEMID claim can enable them.  This
   also indicates that all debug facilities are currently disabled and
   have been so since boot/start.

3.11.5.  Disabled Fully and Permanently

   This level indicates that all debug capabilities for the target
   device/sub-module are permanently disabled.

3.12.  Including Keys

   An EAT may include a cryptographic key such as a public key.  The
   signing of the EAT binds the key to all the other claims in the
   token.

   The purpose for inclusion of the key may vary by use case.  For
   example, the key may be included as part of an IoT device onboarding
   protocol.  When the FIDO protocol includes a pubic key in its
   attestation message, the key represents the binding of a user, device
   and relying party.  This document describes how claims containing
   keys should be defined for the various use cases.  It does not define
   specific claims for specific use cases.

   Keys in CBOR format tokens SHOULD be the COSE_Key format [RFC8152]
   and keys in JSON format tokens SHOULD be the JSON Web Key format
   [RFC7517].  These two formats support many common key types.  Their
   use avoids the need to decode other serialization formats.  These two
   formats can be extended to support further key types through their
   IANA registries.

   The general confirmation claim format [RFC8747], [RFC7800] may also
   be used.  It provides key encryption.  It also allows for inclusion
   by reference through a key ID.  The confirmation claim format may
   employed in the definition of some new claim for a a particular use
   case.

   When the actual confirmation claim is included in an EAT, this
   document associates no use case semantics other than proof of
   posession.  Different EAT use cases may choose to associate further
   semantics.  The key in the confirmation claim MUST be protected the
   same as the key used to sign the EAT.  That is, the same, equivalent
   or better hardware defenses, access controls, key generation and such
   must be used.

3.13.  The Location Claim (location)

   The location claim gives the location of the device entity from which
   the attestation originates.  It is derived from the W3C Geolocation
   API [W3C.GeoLoc].  The latitude, longitude, altitude and accuracy
   must conform to [WGS84].  The altitude is in meters above the [WGS84]
   ellipsoid.  The two accuracy values are positive numbers in meters.
   The heading is in degrees relative to true north.  If the device is
   stationary, the heading is NaN (floating-point not-a-number).  The
   speed is the horizontal component of the device velocity in meters
   per second.

   When encoding floating-point numbers half-precision should not be
   used.  It usually does not provide enough precision for a geographic
   location.  It is not a requirement that the receiver of an EAT
   implement half-precision, so the receiver may not be able to decode
   the location.

   The location may have been cached for a period of time before token
   creation.  For example, it might have been minutes or hours or more
   since the last contact with a GPS satellite.  Either the timestamp or
   age data item can be used to quantify the cached period.  The
   timestamp data item is preferred as it a non-relative time.

   The age data item can be used when the entity doesn't know what time
   it is either because it doesn't have a clock or it isn't set.  The
   entity must still have a "ticker" that can measure a time interval.
   The age is the interval between acquisition of the location data and
   token creation.

   See location-related privacy considerations in Section 8.2 below.

   the same as a seed for a random number generator which must be kept

3.15.  The Intended Use Claim (intended-use)

   EAT's may be used in the context of several different applications.
   The intended-use claim provides an indication to an EAT consumer
   about the intended usage of the token.  This claim can be used as a
   way for an application using EAT to internally distinguish between
   different ways it uses EAT.

   1 - Generic  Generic attestation describes an application where the
      EAT consumer requres the most up-to-date security assessment of
      the attesting entity.  It is expected that this is the most
      commonly-used application of EAT.

   2- Registration  Entities that are registering for a new service may
      be expected to provide an attestation as part of the registration
      process.  This intended-use setting indicates that the attestation
      is not intended for any use but registration.

   3 - Provisioning  Entities may be provisioned with different values
      or settings by an EAT consumer.  Examples include key material or
      device management trees.  The consumer may require an EAT to
      assess device security state of the entity prior to provisioning.

   4 - Certificate Issuance (Certificate Signing Request)  Certifying
      authorities (CA's) may require attestations prior to the issuance
      of certificates related to keypairs hosted at the entity.  An EAT
      may be used as part of the certificate signing request (CSR).

   5 - Proof-of-Possession  An EAT consumer may require an attestation
      as part of an accompanying proof-of-possession (PoP) appication.
      More precisely, a PoP transaction is intended to provide to the
      recipient cryptographically-verifiable proof that the sender has
      posession of a key.  This kind of attestation may be neceesary to
      verify the security state of the entity storing the private key
      used in a PoP application.

3.16.  The Profile Claim (profile)

   The profile claim is a text string that simply gives the name of the
   profile to which the token purports to adhere to.  It may name an
   IETF document, some other document or no particular document.  There
   is no requirement that the named document be publicly accessible.

   See Section 5 for a detailed description of a profile.

   Note that this named "eat-profile" for JWT and is distinct from the
   already registered "profile" claim in the JWT claims registry.

   profile-claim = (
       profile => tstr
   )

3.17.  The Submodules Part of a Token (submods)

   Some devices are complex, having many subsystems or submodules.  A
   mobile phone is a good example.  It may have several connectivity
   submodules for communications (e.g., Wi-Fi and cellular).  It may
   have subsystems for low-power audio and video playback.  It may have
   one or more security-oriented subsystems like a TEE or a Secure
   Element.

   The claims for each these can be grouped together in a submodule.

   The submods part of a token are in a single map/object with many
   entries, one per submodule.  There is only one submods map in a
   token.  It is identified by its specific label.  It is a peer to
   other claims, but it is not called a claim because it is a container
   for a claim set rather than an individual claim.  This submods part
   of a token allows what might be called recursion.  It allows claim
   sets inside of claim sets inside of claims sets...

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


3.17.1.  Two Types of Submodules

   Each entry in the submod map is one of two types:

   o  A non-token submodule that is a map or object directly containing
      claims for the submodule.

   o  A nested EAT that is a fully formed, independently signed EAT
      token

3.17.1.1.  Non-token Submodules

   This is simply a map or object containing claims about the submodule.

   It may contain claims that are the same as its surrounding token or
   superior submodules.  For example, the top-level of the token may
   have a UEID, a submod may have a different UEID and a further
   subordinate submodule may also have a UEID.

   It is signed/encrypted along with the rest of the token and thus the
   claims are secured by the same Attester with the same signing key as
   the rest of the token.

   If a token is in CBOR format (a CWT or a UCCS), all non-token
   submodules must be CBOR format.  If a token in in JSON format (a
   JWT), all non-token submodules must be in JSON format.

   When decoding, this type of submodule is recognized from the other
   type by being a data item of type map for CBOR or type object for
   JSON.

3.17.1.2.  Nested EATs

   This type of submodule is a fully formed secured EAT as defined in
   this document except that it MUST NOT be a UCCS or an unsecured JWT.
   A nested token that is one that is always secured using COSE or JOSE,
   usually by an independent Attester.  When the surrounding EAT is a
   CWT or secured JWT, the nested token becomes securely bound with the
   other claims in the surrounding token.

   It is allowed to have a CWT as a submodule in a JWT and vice versa,
   but this SHOULD be avoided unless necessary.

3.17.1.2.1.  Surrounding EAT is CBOR format

   They type of an EAT nested in a CWT is determined by whether the CBOR
   type is a text string or a byte string.  If a text string, then it is
   a JWT.  If a byte string, then it is a CWT.



Mandyam, et al.          Expires August 7, 2021                [Page 25]


Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   A CWT nested in a CBOR-format token is always wrapped by a byte
   string for easier handling with standard CBOR decoders and token
   processing APIs that will typically take a byte buffer as input.

   Nested CWTs may be either a CWT CBOR tag or a CWT Protocol Message.
   COSE layers in nested CWT EATs MUST be a COSE_Tagged_Message, never a
   COSE_Untagged_Message.  If a nested EAT has more than one level of
   COSE, for example one that is both encrypted and signed, a
   COSE_Tagged_message must be used at every level.

3.17.1.2.2.  Surrounding EAT is JSON format

   When a CWT is nested in a JWT, it must be as a 55799 tag in order to
   distinguish it from a nested JWT.

   When a nested EAT in a JWT is decoded, first remove the base64url
   encoding.  Next, check to see if it starts with the bytes 0xd9d9f7.
   If so, then it is a CWT as a JWT will never start with these four
   bytes.  If not if it is a JWT.

   Other than the 55799 tag requirement, tag usage for CWT's nested in a
   JSON format token follow the same rules as for CWTs nested in CBOR-
   format tokens.  It may be a CWT CBOR tag or a CWT Protocol Message
   and COSE_Tagged_Message MUST be used at all COSE layers.

3.17.1.3.  Unsecured JWTs and UCCS Tokens as Submodules

   To incorporate a UCCS token as a submodule, it MUST be as a non-token
   submodule.  This can be accomplished inserting the content of the
   UCCS Tag into the submodule map.  The content of a UCCS tag is
   exactly a map of claims as required for a non-token submodule.  If
   the UCCS is not a UCCS tag, then it can just be inserted into the
   submodule map directly.

   The definition of a nested EAT type of submodule is that it is one
   that is secured (signed) by an Attester.  Since UCCS tokens are
   unsecured, they do not fulfill this definition and must be non-token
   submodules.

   To incorporate an Unsecured JWT as a submodule, the null-security
   JOSE wrapping should be removed.  The resulting claims set should be
   inserted as a non-token submodule.

   To incorporate a UCCS token in a surrounding JSON token, the UCCS
   token claims should be translated from CBOR to JSON.  To incorporate
   an Unsecured JWT into a surrounding CBOR-format token, the null-
   security JOSE should be removed and the claims translated from JSON
   to CBOR.

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


3.17.2.  No Inheritance

   The subordinate modules do not inherit anything from the containing
   token.  The subordinate modules must explicitly include all of their
   claims.  This is the case even for claims like the nonce and age.

   This rule is in place for simplicity.  It avoids complex inheritance
   rules that might vary from one type of claim to another.

3.17.3.  Security Levels

   The security level of the non-token subordinate modules should always
   be less than or equal to that of the containing modules in the case
   of non-token submodules.  It makes no sense for a module of lesser
   security to be signing claims of a module of higher security.  An
   example of this is a TEE signing claims made by the non-TEE parts
   (e.g. the high-level OS) of the device.

   The opposite may be true for the nested tokens.  They usually have
   their own more secure key material.  An example of this is an
   embedded secure element.

3.17.4.  Submodule Names

   The label or name for each submodule in the submods map is a text
   string naming the submodule.  No submodules may have the same name.

5.  Profiles

   This EAT specification does not gaurantee that implementations of it

   EAT profile will gauarantee interoperability.

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   The profile can be named in the token using the profile claim
   described in Section 3.16.

5.1.  List of Profile Issues

   The following is a list of EAT, CWT, UCCS, JWS, COSE, JOSE and CBOR
   options that a profile should address.

5.1.1.  Use of JSON, CBOR or both

   The profile should indicate whether the token format should be CBOR,
   JSON, both or even some other encoding.  If some other encoding, a
   specification for how the CDDL described here is serialized in that
   encoding is necessary.

   This should be addressed for the top-level token and for any nested
   tokens.  For example, a profile might require all nested tokens to be
   of the same encoding of the top level token.

5.1.2.  CBOR Map and Array Encoding

   The profile should indicate whether definite-length arrays/maps,
   indefinite-length arrays/maps or both are allowed.  A good default is
   to allow only definite-length arrays/maps.

   An alternate is to allow both definite and indefinite-length arrays/
   maps.  The decoder should accept either.  Encoders that need to fit
   on very small hardware or be actually implement in hardware can use
   indefinite-length encoding.

   This applies to individual EAT claims, CWT and COSE parts of the
   implementation.

5.1.3.  CBOR String Encoding

   The profile should indicate whether definite-length strings,
   indefinite-length strings or both are allowed.  A good default is to
   allow only definite-length strings.  As with map and array encoding,
   allowing indefinite-length strings can be beneficial for some smaller
   implementations.

5.1.4.  COSE/JOSE Protection

   COSE and JOSE have several options for signed, MACed and encrypted
   messages.  EAT/CWT has the option to have no protection using UCCS
   and JOSE has a NULL protection option.  It is possible to implement
   no protection, sign only, MAC only, sign then encrypt and so on.  All

   combinations allowed by COSE, JOSE, JWT, CWT and UCCS are allowed by
   EAT.

   The profile should list the protections that must be supported by all
   decoders implementing the profile.  The encoders them must implement
   a subset of what is listed for the decoders, perhaps only one.

   Implementations may choose to sign or MAC before encryption so that
   the implementation layer doing the signing or MACing can be the
   smallest.  It is often easier to make smaller implementations more
   secure, perhaps even implementing in solely in hardware.  The key
   material for a signature or MAC is a private key, while for
   encryption it is likely to be a public key.  The key for encryption
   requires less protection.

5.1.5.  COSE/JOSE Algorithms

   The profile document should list the COSE algorithms that a Verifier
   must implement.  The Attester will select one of them.  Since there
   is no negotiation, the Verifier should implement all algorithms
   listed in the profile.

5.1.6.  Verification Key Identification

   Section Section 4 describes a number of methods for identifying a
   verification key.  The profile document should specify one of these
   or one that is not described.  The ones described in this document
   are only roughly described.  The profile document should go into the
   full detail.

5.1.7.  Endorsement Identification

   Similar to, or perhaps the same as Verification Key Identification,
   the profile may wish to specify how Endorsements are to be
   identified.  However note that Endorsement Identification is
   optional, where as key identification is not.

5.1.8.  Required Claims

   The profile can list claims whose absence results in Verification
   failure.

5.1.9.  Prohibited Claims

   The profile can list claims whose presence results in Verification
   failure.

5.1.10.  Additional Claims

   The profile may describe entirely new claims.  These claims can be
   required or optional.

5.1.11.  Refined Claim Definition

   The profile may lock down optional aspects of individual claims.  For
   example, it may require altitude in the location claim, or it may
   require that HW Versions always be described using EAN-13.

5.1.12.  CBOR Tags

   The profile should specify whether the token should be a CWT Tag or
   not.  Similarly, the profile should specify whether the token should
   be a UCCS tag or not.

   When COSE protection is used, the profile should specify whether COSE
   tags are used or not.  Note that RFC 8392 requires COSE tags be used
   in a CWT tag.

   Often a tag is unncessary because the surrounding or carrying
   protocol identifies the object as an EAT.

6.  Encoding

   This makes use of the types defined in CDDL Appendix D, Standard
   Prelude.

   Some of the CDDL included here is for claims that are defined in CWT
   [RFC8392] or JWT [RFC7519] or are in the IANA CWT or JWT registries.
   CDDL was not in use when these claims where defined.

6.1.  Common CDDL Types

   time-int is identical to the epoch-based time, but disallows
   floating-point representation.

   string-or-uri = tstr

   time-int = #6.1(int)

6.2.  CDDL for CWT-defined Claims

   This section provides CDDL for the claims defined in CWT.  It is non-
   normative as [RFC8392] is the authoritative definition of these
   claims.

6.3.2.  JSON Interoperability

   JSON should be encoded per RFC 8610 Appendix E.  In addition, the
   following CDDL types are encoded in JSON as follows:

   o  bstr - must be base64url encoded

   o  time - must be encoded as NumericDate as described section 2 of
      [RFC7519].

   o  string-or-uri - must be encoded as StringOrURI as described
      section 2 of [RFC7519].

6.4.  CBOR

6.4.1.  CBOR Interoperability

   CBOR allows data items to be serialized in more than one form.  If
   the sender uses a form that the receiver can't decode, there will not
   be interoperability.

   This specification gives no blanket requirements to narrow CBOR
   serialization for all uses of EAT.  This allows individual uses to
   tailor serialization to the environment.  It also may result in EAT
   implementations that don't interoperate.

   One way to guarantee interoperability is to clearly specify CBOR
   serialization in a profile document.  See Section 5 for a list of
   serialization issues that should be addressed.

   EAT will be commonly used where the device generating the attestation
   is constrained and the receiver/verifier of the attestation is a
   capacious server.  Following is a set of serialization requirements
   that work well for that use case and are guaranteed to interoperate.
   Use of this serialization is recommended where possible, but not
   required.  An EAT profile may just reference the following section
   rather than spell out serialization details.

6.4.1.1.  EAT Constrained Device Serialization

   o  Preferred serialization described in section 4.1 of [RFC8949] is
      not required.  The EAT decoder must accept all forms of number
      serialization.  The EAT encoder may use any form it wishes.

   o  The EAT decoder must accept indefinite length arrays and maps as
      described in section 3.2.2 of [RFC8949].  The EAT encoder may use
      indefinite length arrays and maps if it wishes.

   o  The EAT decoder must accept indefinite length strings as described
      in section 3.2.3 of [RFC8949].  The EAT encoder may use indefinite
      length strings if it wishes.

   o  Sorting of maps by key is not required.  The EAT decoder must not
      rely on sorting.

   o  Deterministic encoding described in Section 4.2 of [RFC8949] is
      not required.

   o  Basic validity described in section 5.3.1 of [RFC8949] must be
      followed.  The EAT encoder must not send duplicate map keys/labels
      or invalid UTF-8 strings.

7.  IANA Considerations

7.1.  Reuse of CBOR Web Token (CWT) Claims Registry

   Claims defined for EAT are compatible with those of CWT so the CWT
   Claims Registry is re used.  No new IANA registry is created.  All
   EAT claims should be registered in the CWT and JWT Claims Registries.

7.2.  Claim Characteristics

   The following is design guidance for creating new EAT claims,
   particularly those to be registered with IANA.

   Much of this guidance is generic and could also be considered when
   designing new CWT or JWT claims.

7.2.1.  Interoperability and Relying Party Orientation

   It is a broad goal that EATs can be processed by relying parties in a
   general way regardless of the type, manufacturer or technology of the
   device from which they originate.  It is a goal that there be
   general-purpose verification implementations that can verify tokens
   for large numbers of use cases with special cases and configurations
   for different device types.  This is a goal of interoperability of
   the semantics of claims themselves, not just of the signing, encoding
   and serialization formats.



Mandyam, et al.          Expires August 7, 2021                [Page 40]


Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   This is a lofty goal and difficult to achieve broadly requiring
   careful definition of claims in a technology neutral way.  Sometimes
   it will be difficult to design a claim that can represent the
   semantics of data from very different device types.  However, the
   goal remains even when difficult.

7.2.2.  Operating System and Technology Neutral

   Claims should be defined such that they are not specific to an
   operating system.  They should be applicable to multiple large high-
   level operating systems from different vendors.  They should also be
   applicable to multiple small embedded operating systems from multiple
   vendors and everything in between.

   Claims should not be defined such that they are specific to a SW
   environment or programming language.

   Claims should not be defined such that they are specific to a chip or
   particular hardware.  For example, they should not just be the
   contents of some HW status register as it is unlikely that the same
   HW status register with the same bits exists on a chip of a different
   manufacturer.

   The boot and debug state claims in this document are an example of a
   claim that has been defined in this neutral way.

7.2.3.  Security Level Neutral

   Many use cases will have EATs generated by some of the most secure
   hardware and software that exists.  Secure Elements and smart cards
   are examples of this.  However, EAT is intended for use in low-
   security use cases the same as high-security use case.  For example,
   an app on a mobile device may generate EATs on its own.

   Claims should be defined and registered on the basis of whether they
   are useful and interoperable, not based on security level.  In
   particular, there should be no exclusion of claims because they are
   just used only in low-security environments.

7.2.4.  Reuse of Extant Data Formats

   Where possible, claims should use already standardized data items,
   identifiers and formats.  This takes advantage of the expertise put
   into creating those formats and improves interoperability.

   Often extant claims will not be defined in an encoding or
   serialization format used by EAT.  It is preferred to define a CBOR




Mandyam, et al.          Expires August 7, 2021                [Page 41]


Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   and JSON format for them so that EAT implementations do not require a
   plethora of encoders and decoders for serialization formats.

   In some cases, it may be better to use the encoding and serialization
   as is.  For example, signed X.509 certificates and CRLs can be
   carried as-is in a byte string.  This retains interoperability with
   the extensive infrastructure for creating and processing X.509
   certificates and CRLs.

7.2.5.  Proprietary Claims

   EAT allows the definition and use of proprietary claims.

   For example, a device manufacturer may generate a token with
   proprietary claims intended only for verification by a service
   offered by that device manufacturer.  This is a supported use case.

   In many cases proprietary claims will be the easiest and most obvious
   way to proceed, however for better interoperability, use of general
   standardized claims is preferred.

   o  Claim Key: 8

   o  Claim Value Type(s): byte string

   o  Change Controller: IESG

   o  Specification Document(s): *this document*

   TODO: add the rest of the claims in here

8.  Privacy Considerations

   Certain EAT claims can be used to track the owner of an entity and
   therefore, implementations should consider providing privacy-
   preserving options dependent on the intended usage of the EAT.
   Examples would include suppression of location claims for EAT's
   provided to unauthenticated consumers.

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


8.1.  UEID Privacy Considerations

   A UEID is usually not privacy-preserving.  Any set of relying parties
   that receives tokens that happen to be from a single device will be
   able to know the tokens are all from the same device and be able to
   track the device.  Thus, in many usage situations ueid violates
   governmental privacy regulation.  In other usage situations UEID will
   not be allowed for certain products like browsers that give privacy
   for the end user.  It will often be the case that tokens will not
   have a UEID for these reasons.

   There are several strategies that can be used to still be able to put
   UEID's in tokens:

   o  The device obtains explicit permission from the user of the device
      to use the UEID.  This may be through a prompt.  It may also be
      through a license agreement.  For example, agreements for some
      online banking and brokerage services might already cover use of a
      UEID.

   o  The UEID is used only in a particular context or particular use
      case.  It is used only by one relying party.

   o  The device authenticates the relying party and generates a derived
      UEID just for that particular relying party.  For example, the
      relying party could prove their identity cryptographically to the
      device, then the device generates a UEID just for that relying
      party by hashing a proofed relying party ID with the main device
      UEID.

   Note that some of these privacy preservation strategies result in
   multiple UEIDs per device.  Each UEID is used in a different context,
   use case or system on the device.  However, from the view of the
   relying party, there is just one UEID and it is still globally
   universal across manufacturers.

8.2.  Location Privacy Considerations

   Geographic location is most always considered personally identifiable
   information.  Implementers should consider laws and regulations
   governing the transmission of location data from end user devices to
   servers and services.  Implementers should consider using location
   management facilities offered by the operating system on the device
   generating the attestation.  For example, many mobile phones prompt
   the user for permission when before sending location data.

9.  Security Considerations

   The security considerations provided in Section 8 of [RFC8392] and
   Section 11 of [RFC7519] apply to EAT in its CWT and JWT form,
   respectively.  In addition, implementors should consider the
   following.

9.1.  Key Provisioning

   Private key material can be used to sign and/or encrypt the EAT, or
   can be used to derive the keys used for signing and/or encryption.
   In some instances, the manufacturer of the entity may create the key
   material separately and provision the key material in the entity
   itself.  The manfuacturer of any entity that is capable of producing
   an EAT should take care to ensure that any private key material be
   suitably protected prior to provisioning the key material in the
   entity itself.  This can require creation of key material in an
   enclave (see [RFC4949] for definition of "enclave"), secure
   transmission of the key material from the enclave to the entity using
   an appropriate protocol, and persistence of the private key material
   in some form of secure storage to which (preferably) only the entity
   has access.

9.1.1.  Transmission of Key Material

   Regarding transmission of key material from the enclave to the
   entity, the key material may pass through one or more intermediaries.
   Therefore some form of protection ("key wrapping") may be necessary.
   The transmission itself may be performed electronically, but can also
   be done by human courier.  In the latter case, there should be
   minimal to no exposure of the key material to the human (e.g.
   encrypted portable memory).  Moreover, the human should transport the
   key material directly from the secure enclave where it was created to
   a destination secure enclave where it can be provisioned.

9.2.  Transport Security

   As stated in Section 8 of [RFC8392], "The security of the CWT relies
   upon on the protections offered by COSE".  Similar considerations
   apply to EAT when sent as a CWT.  However, EAT introduces the concept
   of a nonce to protect against replay.  Since an EAT may be created by
   an entity that may not support the same type of transport security as
   the consumer of the EAT, intermediaries may be required to bridge
   communications between the entity and consumer.  As a result, it is
   RECOMMENDED that both the consumer create a nonce, and the entity
   leverage the nonce along with COSE mechanisms for encryption and/or
   signing to create the EAT.




Mandyam, et al.          Expires August 7, 2021                [Page 44]


Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


   Similar considerations apply to the use of EAT as a JWT.  Although
   the security of a JWT leverages the JSON Web Encryption (JWE) and
   JSON Web Signature (JWS) specifications, it is still recommended to
   make use of the EAT nonce.

9.3.  Multiple EAT Consumers

   In many cases, more than one EAT consumer may be required to fully
   verify the entity attestation.  Examples include individual consumers
   for nested EATs, or consumers for individual claims with an EAT.
   When multiple consumers are required for verification of an EAT, it
   is important to minimize information exposure to each consumer.  In
   addition, the communication between multiple consumers should be
   secure.

   For instance, consider the example of an encrypted and signed EAT
   with multiple claims.  A consumer may receive the EAT (denoted as the
   "receiving consumer"), decrypt its payload, verify its signature, but
   then pass specific subsets of claims to other consumers for
   evaluation ("downstream consumers").  Since any COSE encryption will
   be removed by the receiving consumer, the communication of claim
   subsets to any downstream consumer should leverage a secure protocol
   (e.g.one that uses transport-layer security, i.e. TLS),

   However, assume the EAT of the previous example is hierarchical and
   each claim subset for a downstream consumer is created in the form of
   a nested EAT.  Then transport security between the receiving and
   downstream consumers is not strictly required.  Nevertheless,
   downstream consumers of a nested EAT should provide a nonce unique to
   the EAT they are consuming.

Appendix B.  UEID Design Rationale

B.1.  Collision Probability

   This calculation is to determine the probability of a collision of
   UEIDs given the total possible entity population and the number of
   entities in a particular entity management database.

   Three different sized databases are considered.  The number of
   devices per person roughly models non-personal devices such as
   traffic lights, devices in stores they shop in, facilities they work
   in and so on, even considering individual light bulbs.  A device may
   have individually attested subsystems, for example parts of a car or
   a mobile phone.  It is assumed that the largest database will have at
   most 10% of the world's population of devices.  Note that databases
   that handle more than a trillion records exist today.

   The trillion-record database size models an easy-to-imagine reality
   over the next decades.  The quadrillion-record database is roughly at
   the limit of what is imaginable and should probably be accommodated.
   The 100 quadrillion datadbase is highly speculative perhaps involving
   nanorobots for every person, livestock animal and domesticated bird.
   It is included to round out the analysis.

   Note that the items counted here certainly do not have IP address and
   are not individually connected to the network.  They may be connected
   to internal buses, via serial links, Bluetooth and so on.  This is
   not the same problem as sizing IP addresses.

   +---------+------------+--------------+------------+----------------+
   | People  | Devices /  | Subsystems / | Database   | Database Size  |
   |         | Person     | Device       | Portion    |                |
   +---------+------------+--------------+------------+----------------+
   | 10      | 100        | 10           | 10%        | trillion       |
   | billion |            |              |            | (10^12)        |
   | 10      | 100,000    | 10           | 10%        | quadrillion    |
   | billion |            |              |            | (10^15)        |
   | 100     | 1,000,000  | 10           | 10%        | 100            |
   | billion |            |              |            | quadrillion    |
   |         |            |              |            | (10^17)        |
   +---------+------------+--------------+------------+----------------+

   This is conceptually similar to the Birthday Problem where m is the
   number of possible birthdays, always 365, and k is the number of
   people.  It is also conceptually similar to the Birthday Attack where
   collisions of the output of hash functions are considered.

   The proper formula for the collision calculation is



Mandyam, et al.          Expires August 7, 2021                [Page 50]


Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


      p = 1 - e^{-k^2/(2n)}

      p   Collision Probability
      n   Total possible population
      k   Actual population

   However, for the very large values involved here, this formula
   requires floating point precision higher than commonly available in
   calculators and SW so this simple approximation is used.  See
   [BirthdayAttack].

       p = k^2 / 2n

   For this calculation:

       p  Collision Probability
       n  Total population based on number of bits in UEID
       k  Population in a database

   +----------------------+--------------+--------------+--------------+
   | Database Size        | 128-bit UEID | 192-bit UEID | 256-bit UEID |
   +----------------------+--------------+--------------+--------------+
   | trillion (10^12)     | 2 * 10^-15   | 8 * 10^-35   | 5 * 10^-55   |
   | quadrillion (10^15)  | 2 * 10^-09   | 8 * 10^-29   | 5 * 10^-49   |
   | 100 quadrillion      | 2 * 10^-05   | 8 * 10^-25   | 5 * 10^-45   |
   | (10^17)              |              |              |              |
   +----------------------+--------------+--------------+--------------+

   Next, to calculate the probability of a collision occurring in one
   year's operation of a database, it is assumed that the database size
   is in a steady state and that 10% of the database changes per year.
   For example, a trillion record database would have 100 billion states
   per year.  Each of those states has the above calculated probability
   of a collision.

   This assumption is a worst-case since it assumes that each state of
   the database is completely independent from the previous state.  In
   reality this is unlikely as state changes will be the addition or
   deletion of a few records.

   The following tables gives the time interval until there is a
   probability of a collision based on there being one tenth the number
   of states per year as the number of records in the database.

Internet-Draft                     EAT                     February 2021


     t = 1 / ((k / 10) * p)

     t  Time until a collision
     p  Collision probability for UEID size
     k  Database size

   +---------------------+---------------+--------------+--------------+
   | Database Size       | 128-bit UEID  | 192-bit UEID | 256-bit UEID |
   +---------------------+---------------+--------------+--------------+
   | trillion (10^12)    | 60,000 years  | 10^24 years  | 10^44 years  |
   | quadrillion (10^15) | 8 seconds     | 10^14 years  | 10^34 years  |
   | 100 quadrillion     | 8             | 10^11 years  | 10^31 years  |
   | (10^17)             | microseconds  |              |              |
   +---------------------+---------------+--------------+--------------+

   Clearly, 128 bits is enough for the near future thus the requirement
   that UEIDs be a minimum of 128 bits.

   There is no requirement for 256 bits today as quadrillion-record
   databases are not expected in the near future and because this time-
   to-collision calculation is a very worst case.  A future update of
   the standard may increase the requirement to 256 bits, so there is a
   requirement that implementations be able to receive 256-bit UEIDs.

B.2.  No Use of UUID

   A UEID is not a UUID [RFC4122] by conscious choice for the following
   reasons.

   UUIDs are limited to 128 bits which may not be enough for some future
   use cases.

   Today, cryptographic-quality random numbers are available from common
   CPUs and hardware.  This hardware was introduced between 2010 and
   2015.  Operating systems and cryptographic libraries give access to
   this hardware.  Consequently, there is little need for
   implementations to construct such random values from multiple sources
   on their own.

   Version 4 UUIDs do allow for use of such cryptographic-quality random
   numbers, but do so by mapping into the overall UUID structure of time
   and clock values.  This structure is of no value here yet adds
   complexity.  It also slightly reduces the number of actual bits with
   entropy.

   UUIDs seem to have been designed for scenarios where the implementor
   does not have full control over the environment and uniqueness has to
   be constructed from identifiers at hand.  UEID takes the view that

   hardware, software and/or manufacturing process directly implement
   UEID in a simple and direct way.  It takes the view that
   cryptographic quality random number generators are readily available
   as they are implemented in commonly used CPU hardware.

Appendix C.  Changes from Previous Drafts

   The following is a list of known changes from the previous drafts.
   This list is non-authoritative.  It is meant to help reviewers see
   the significant differences.

C.1.  From draft-rats-eat-01

   o  Added UEID design rationale appendix

C.2.  From draft-mandyam-rats-eat-00

   This is a fairly large change in the orientation of the document, but
   no new claims have been added.
