                   Routing Key Chain YANG Data Model
                 draft-ietf-rtgwg-yang-key-chain-15.txt

Abstract

   This document describes the key chain YANG data model.  A key chain
   is a list of elements each containing a key string, send lifetime,
   accept lifetime, and algorithm (authentication or encryption).  By
   properly overlapping the send and accept lifetimes of multiple key
   chain elements, key strings and algorithms may be gracefully updated.
   By representing them in a YANG data model, key distribution can be
   automated.  Key chains are commonly used for routing protocol
   authentication and other applications.  In some applications, the
   protocols do not use the key chain element key directly, but rather a
   key derivation function is used to derive a short-lived key from the
   key chain element key (e.g., the Master Keys used in the TCP
   Authentication Option.

   chain elements, key strings and algorithms may be gracefully updated.
   By representing them in a YANG data model, key distribution can be
   automated.  Key chains are commonly used for routing protocol
   authentication and other applications.  In some applications, the
   protocols do not use the key chain element key string directly, but
   rather a key derivation function is used to derive a short-lived key
   from the key chain element key string (e.g., the Master Keys used in
   [TCP-AO]).

1.1.  Requirements Notation

   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
   [RFC-KEYWORDS].

1.2.  Tree Diagrams

   A simplified graphical representation of the complete data tree is
   presented in Section 3.3.  The following tree notation is used.

   o  Brackets "[" and "]" enclose list keys.

   o  Curly braces "{" and "}" contain names of optional features that
      make the corresponding node conditional.

   o  Abbreviations before data node names: "rw" means configuration
      (read-write), "ro" state data (read-only), "-x" RPC operations,
      and "-n" notifications.

   o  Symbols after data node names: "?" means an optional node, "!" a
      container with presence, and "*" denotes a "list" or "leaf-list".

   o  Parentheses enclose choice and case nodes, and case nodes are also
      marked with a colon (":").

   o  Ellipsis ("...") stands for contents of subtrees that are not
      shown.

2.  Problem Statement

   This document describes a YANG [YANG] data model for key chains.  Key
   chains have been implemented and deployed by a large percentage of
   network equipment vendors.  Providing a standard YANG model will
   facilitate automated key distribution and non-disruptive key
   rollover.  This will aid in tightening the security of the core
   routing infrastructure as recommended in [IAB-REPORT].

Internet-Draft               YANG Key Chain                February 2017


   A key chain is a list containing one or more elements containing a
   Key ID, key string, send/accept lifetimes, and the associated
   authentication or encryption algorithm.  A key chain can be used by
   any service or application requiring authentication or encryption.
   In essence, the key-chain is a reusable key policy that can be
   referenced whereever it is required.  The key-chain construct has
   been implemented by most networking vendors and deployed in many
   networks.

   A conceptual representation of a crypto key table is described in
   [CRYPTO-KEYTABLE].  The crypto key table also includes keys as well
   as their corresponding lifetimes and algorithms.  Additionally, the
   key table includes key selection criteria and envisions a deployment
   model where the details of the applications or services requiring
   authentication or encryption permeate into the key database.  The
   YANG key-chain model described herein doesn't include key selection
   criteria or support this deployment model.  At the same time, it does
   not preclude it.  The draft [YANG-CRYPTO-KEYTABLE] describes
   augmentations to the key chain YANG model in support of key selection
   criteria.

2.1.  Applicability

   Other YANG modules may reference ietf-key-chain YANG module key-chain
   names for authentication and encryption applications.  A YANG type
   has been provided to facilate reference to the key-chain name without
   having to specify the complete YANG XML Path Language (XPath)
   selector.

2.2.  Graceful Key Rollover using Key Chains

   Key chains may be used to gracefully update the key string and/or
   algorithm used by an application for authentication or encryption.
   This MAY be accomplished by accepting all the keys that have a valid
   accept lifetime and sending the key with the most recent send
   lifetime.  One scenario for facilitating key rollover is to:

   1.  Distribute a key chain with a new key to all the routers or other
       network devices in the domain of that key chain.  The new key's
       accept lifetime should be such that it is accepted during the key
       rollover period.  The send lifetime should be a time in the
       future when it can be assured that all the routers in the domain
       of that key are upgraded.  This will have no immediate impact on
       the keys used for transmission.

   2.  Assure that all the network devices have been updated with the
       updated key chain and that their system times are roughly
       synchronized.  The system times of devices within an

Internet-Draft               YANG Key Chain                February 2017


       administrative domain are commonly synchronized (e.g., using
       Network Time Protocol (NTP) [NTP-PROTO]).  This also may be
       automated.

   3.  When the send lifetime of the new key becomes valid, the network
       devices within the domain of key chain will start sending the new
       key.

   4.  At some point in the future, a new key chain with the old key
       removed may be distributed to the network devices within the
       domain of the key chain.  However, this may be deferred until the
       next key rollover.  If this is done, the key chain will always
       include two keys; either the current and future key (during key
       rollovers) or the current and previous keys (between key
       rollovers).

3.  Design of the Key Chain Model

   The ietf-key-chain module contains a list of one or more keys indexed
   by a Key ID.  For some applications (e.g., OSPFv3 [OSPFV3-AUTH]), the
   Key ID is used to identify the key chain key to be used.  In addition
   to the Key ID, each key chain key includes a key-string and a
   cryptographic algorithm.  Optionally, the key chain keys include
   send/accept lifetimes.  If the send/accept lifetime is unspecified,
   the key is always considered valid.

   Note that asymmetric keys, i.e., a different key value used for
   transmission versus acceptance, may be supported with multiple key
   chain elements where the accept-lifetime or send-lifetime is not
   valid (e.g., has an end-time equal to the start-time).

   Due to the differences in key chain implementations across various
   vendors, some of the data elements are optional.  Finally, the crypto
   algorithm identities are provided for reuse when configuring legacy
   authentication and encryption not using key-chains.

   A key-chain is identified by a unique name within the scope of the
   network device.  The "key-chain-ref" typedef SHOULD be used by other
   YANG modules when they need to reference a configured key-chain.  The
   "key-chain-state=ref" typedef SHOULD be used by other YANG modules
   when they need to reference operational state for a configured key-
   chain.

3.1.  Key Chain Operational State

   The key chain operational state is maintained in a separate tree.
   The key string itself is omitted from the operational state to
   minimize visibility similar to what was done with keys in SNMP MIBs.



Lindem, et al.           Expires August 20, 2017                [Page 5]


Internet-Draft               YANG Key Chain                February 2017


   The timestamp of the last key-chain modification is also maintained
   in the operational state.  Additionally, the operational state
   includes an indication of whether or not a key chain key is valid for
   sending or acceptance.

3.2.  Key Chain Model Features

   Features are used to handle differences between vendor
   implementations.  For example, not all vendors support configuration
   an acceptance tolerance or configuration of key strings in
   hexadecimal.  They are also used to support of security requirements
   (e.g., TCP-AO Algorithms [TCP-AO-ALGORITHMS]) not implemented by
   vendors or only a single vendor.

5.  Security Considerations

   This document enables the automated distribution of industry standard
   key chains using the NETCONF [NETCONF] protocol.  As such, the
   security considerations for the NETCONF protocol are applicable.  The

   NETCONF protocol mandates confidentiality (section 2.2 of [NETCONF].
   Similarily, the RESTCONF protocol also mandates confidentiality
   (section 1.1 of [RESTCONF]).  If a transport not mandating
   confidentiality is used, it is RECOMMENDED that the transport
   communication channel be encrypted.

   When configured, the key-strings can be encrypted using the AES Key
   Wrap algorithm [AES-KEY-WRAP].  The AES key-encryption key (KEK) is
   not included in the YANG model and must be set or derived independent
   of key-chain configuration.

   The key strings are not accessible by default and NETCONF Access
   Control Mode [NETCONF-ACM] rules are required to configure or
   retrieve them.

   The clear-text algorithm is included as a YANG feature.  Usage is NOT
   RECOMMENDED except in cases where the application and device have no
   other alternative (e.g., a legacy network device that must
   authenticate packets at intervals of 10 milliseconds or less for many
   peers using Bidirectional Forwarding Detection [BFD]).  Keys used
   with the clear-text algorithm are considered insecure and SHOULD NOT
   be reused with more secure algorithms.

   It is RECOMMENDED that keys be encrypted or otherwise obfuscated when
   stored internally on a network device supporting this specification.
