                        RADIUS Attribute for MAP
                   draft-ietf-softwire-map-radius-05

Abstract

   Mapping of Address and Port (MAP) is a stateless mechanism for
   running IPv4 over IPv6-only infrastructure.  It provides both IPv4
   and IPv6 connectivity services simultaneously during the IPv4/IPv6
   co-existing period.  The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6
   (DHCPv6) MAP options has been defined to configure MAP Customer Edge
   (CE).  However, in many networks, the configuration information may
   be stored in Authentication Authorization and Accounting (AAA)
   servers while user configuration is mainly from Broadband Network
   Gateway (BNG) through DHCPv6 protocol.  This document defines a
   Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) attribute that
   carries MAP configuration information from AAA server to BNG.  The
   MAP RADIUS attribute are designed following the simplify principle.
   It provides just enough information to form the correspondent DHCPv6
   MAP option.

1.  Introduction

   Recently providers start to deploy IPv6 and consider how to transit
   to IPv6.  Mapping of Address and Port (MAP)[I-D.ietf-softwire-map] is
   a stateless mechanism for running IPv4 over IPv6-only infrastructure.
   It provides both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity services simultaneously
   during the IPv4/IPv6 co-existing period.  MAP has adopted Dynamic
   Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) [RFC3315] as auto-
   configuring protocol.  The MAP Customer Edge (CE) uses the DHCPv6
   extension options [I-D.ietf-softwire-map-dhcp] to discover MAP Border
   Relay (in tunnel model only) and to configure relevant MAP rules.

   In many networks, user configuration information may be stored by AAA
   (Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting) servers.  Current AAA
   servers communicate using the Remote Authentication Dial In User
   Service (RADIUS) [RFC2865] protocol.  In a fixed line broadband
   network, the Broadband Network Gateways (BNGs) act as the access
   gateway of users.  The BNGs are assumed to embed a DHCPv6 server
   function that allows them to locally handle any DHCPv6 requests
   initiated by hosts.

   Since the MAP configuration information is stored in AAA servers and
   user configuration is mainly transmitted through DHCPv6 protocol
   between BNGs and hosts/CEs, new RADIUS attributes are needed to
   propagate the information from AAA servers to BNGs.  The MAP RADIUS
   attributes designed in this document are especially for the MAP
   encapsulation mode, while providing enough information to form the
   correspondent DHCPv6 MAP option [I-D.ietf-softwire-map-dhcp].

2.  Terminology

   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].

   The terms MAP CE and MAP Border Relay are defined in
   [I-D.ietf-softwire-map].

3.  MAP Configuration process with RADIUS

   The below Figure 1 illustrates how the RADIUS protocol and DHCPv6
   cooperate to provide MAP CE with MAP configuration information.

    Figure 1: the cooperation between DHCPv6 and RADIUS combining with
                           RADIUS authentication

   The BNG acts as a RADIUS client and as a DHCPv6 server.  First, the
   MAP CE MAY initiate a DHCPv6 Solicit message that includes an Option
   Request option (6) [RFC3315] with the MAP option
   [I-D.ietf-softwire-map-dhcp] from the MAP CE.  But note that the ORO
   (Option Request option) with the MAP option could be optional if the
   network was planned as MAP-enabled as default.  When BNG receives the
   SOLICIT, it SHOULD initiates radius Access-Request message, in which
   the User-Name attribute (1) SHOULD be filled by the MAP CE MAC
   address or interface-id or both, to the RADIUS server and the User-
   password attribute (2) SHOULD be filled by the shared MAP password
   that has been preconfigured on the DHCPv6 server, requesting
   authentication as defined in [RFC2865] with MAP-Configuration
   attribute, which will be defined in the next Section.  If the
   authentication request is approved by the AAA server, an Access-
   Accept message MUST be acknowledged with the IPv6-MAP-Configuration
   Attribute.  After receiving the Access-Accept message with MAP-
   Configuration Attribute, the BNG SHOULD respond the user an
   Advertisement message.  Then the user can requests for a MAP Option,
   and the BNG SHOULD reply the user with the message containing the MAP
   option.  The recommended format of the MAC address is defined as
   Calling-Station-Id (Section 3.20 in [RFC3580] without the SSID
   (Service Set Identifier) portion.

   Figure 2 describes another scenario, in which the authorization
   operation is not coupled with authentication.  Authorization relevant
   to MAP is done independently after the authentication process.  As
   similar to above scenario, the ORO with the MAP option in the initial
   DHCPv6 request could be optional if the network was planned as MAP-
   enabled as default.

    Figure 2: the cooperation between DHCPv6 and RADIUS decoupled with
                           RADIUS authentication

   In the above mentioned scenario, the Access-Request packet SHOULD
   contain a Service-Type attribute (6) with the value Authorize Only
   (17); thus, according to [RFC5080], the Access-Request packet MUST
   contain a State attribute that obtained from the previous
   authentication process.

   In both above-mentioned scenarios, Message-authenticator (type 80)
   [RFC2869] SHOULD be used to protect both Access-Request and Access-
   Accept messages.

   After receiving the MAP-Configuration Attribute in the initial
   Access-Accept, the BNG SHOULD store the received MAP configuration
   parameters locally.  When the MAP CE sends a DHCPv6 Request message
   to request an extension of the lifetimes for the assigned address,
   the BNG does not have to initiate a new Access-Request towards the
   AAA server to request the MAP configuration parameters.  The BNG
   could retrieve the previously stored MAP configuration parameters and
   use them in its reply.

   If the BNG does not receive the MAP-Configuration Attribute in the
   Access-Accept it MAY fallback to a pre-configured default MAP
   configuration, if any.  If the BNG does not have any pre-configured
   default MAP configuration or if the BNG receives an Access-Reject,
   the tunnel cannot be established.

   As specified in [RFC3315], section 18.1.4, "Creation and Transmission
   of Rebind Messages ", if the DHCPv6 server to which the DHCPv6 Renew
   message was sent at time T1 has not responded by time T2, the MAP CE
   (DHCPv6 client) SHOULD enters the Rebind state and attempt to contact
   any available server.  In this situation, the secondary BNG receiving
   the DHCPv6 message MUST initiate a new Access-Request towards the AAA

   Attribute in its Access-Request.

4.  Attributes

   This section defines MAP-Rule Attribute which is used in the MAP
   scenario.  The attribute design follows [RFC6158] and refers
   to[RFC6929].

   The MAP RADIUS attribute are designed following the simplify
   principle.  The sub options are organized into two categories: the
   necessary and the optional.

4.1.  MAP-Configuration Attribute

   The MAP-Configuration Attribute is structured as follows:

4.4.  Table of attributes

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

   Request Accept Reject Challenge Accounting  #  Attribute
                                    Request
    0-1     0-1     0      0         0-1      TBD1 MAP-
                                                   Configuration
    0-1     0-1     0      0         0-1      1    User-Name
    0-1     0       0      0         0        2    User-Password
    0-1     0-1     0      0         0-1      6    Service-Type
    0-1     0-1     0-1    0-1       0-1      80   Message-Authenticator

   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
         packet.
   0-1   Zero or one instance of this attribute MAY be present in
         packet.
   1     Exactly one instance of this attribute MUST be present in
         packet.

5.  Diameter Considerations

   This attribute is usable within either RADIUS or Diameter [RFC6733].
   Since the Attributes defined in this document will be allocated from
   the standard RADIUS type space, no special handling is required by
   Diameter entities.

Internet-Draft      draft-ietf-softwire-map-radius-05      December 2015


6.  IANA Considerations

   This document requires the assignment of two new RADIUS Attributes
   Types in the "Radius Types" registry (currently located at
   http://www.iana.org/assignments/radius-types for the following
   attributes:

   o  MAP-Configuration TBD1

   IANA should allocate the numbers from the standard RADIUS Attributes
   space using the "IETF Review" policy [RFC5226].

7.  Security Considerations

   In MAP scenarios, both CE and BNG are within a provider network,
   which can be considered as a closed network and a lower security
   threat environment.  A similar consideration can be applied to the
   RADIUS message exchange between BNG and the AAA server.

   Known security vulnerabilities of the RADIUS protocol are discussed
   in [RFC2607], [RFC2865], and[RFC2869].  Use of IPsec [RFC4301] for
   providing security when RADIUS is carried in IPv6 is discussed in
   [RFC3162].

   A malicious user may use MAC address proofing and/or dictionary
   attack on the shared MAP password that has been preconfigured on the
   DHCPv6 server to get unauthorized MAP configuration information.

   Security considerations for MAP specific between MAP CE and BNG are
   discussed in [I-D.ietf-softwire-map].  Furthermore, generic DHCPv6
   security mechanisms can be applied DHCPv6 intercommunication between
   MAP CE and BNG.

   Security considerations for the Diameter protocol are discussed in
   [RFC6733].
