  Negotiated Finite Field Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral Parameters for TLS
                  draft-ietf-tls-negotiated-ff-dhe-09

Abstract

   Traditional finite-field-based Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange
   during the TLS handshake suffers from a number of security,
   interoperability, and efficiency shortcomings.  These shortcomings
   arise from lack of clarity about which DH group parameters TLS
   servers should offer and clients should accept.  This document offers
   a solution to these shortcomings for compatible peers by using a
   section of the TLS "EC Named Curve Registry" to establish common
   finite-field DH parameters with known structure and a mechanism for
   peers to negotiate support for these groups.

Internet-Draft          Negotiated-FF-DHE-for-TLS               May 2015


1.  Introduction

   Traditional TLS [RFC5246] offers a Diffie-Hellman ephemeral (DHE) key
   exchange mode which provides Forward Secrecy for the connection.  The
   client offers a ciphersuite in the ClientHello that includes DHE, and
   the server offers the client group parameters generator g and modulus
   p.  If the client does not consider the group strong enough (e.g., if
   p is too small, or if p is not prime, or there are small subgroups
   that cannot be easily avoided), or if it is unable to process the
   group for other reasons, the client has no recourse but to terminate
   the connection.

   Conversely, when a TLS server receives a suggestion for a DHE
   ciphersuite from a client, it has no way of knowing what kinds of DH
   groups the client is capable of handling, or what the client's
   security requirements are for this key exchange session.  For
   example, some widely-distributed TLS clients are not capable of DH
   groups where p > 1024 bits.  Other TLS clients may by policy wish to
   use DHE only if the server can offer a stronger group (and are
   willing to use a non-PFS key-exchange mechanism otherwise).  The
   server has no way of knowing which type of client is connecting, but
   must select DH parameters with insufficient knowledge.

   Additionally, the DH parameters selected by the server may have a
   known structure which renders them secure against a small subgroup
   attack, but a client receiving an arbitrary p and g has no efficient
   way to verify that the structure of a new group is reasonable for
   use.

   This modification to TLS solves these problems by using a section of
   the "EC Named Curves" registry to select common DH groups with known
   structure and defining the use of the "elliptic_curves(10)" extension
   (described here as "Supported Groups" extension) for clients
   advertising support for DHE with these groups.  This document also
   provides guidance for compatible peers to take advantage of the
   additional security, availability, and efficiency offered.

   The use of this mechanism by one compatible peer when interacting
   with a non-compatible peer should have no detrimental effects.

1.1.  Requirements Language

   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 term
   "PRIVATE USE" is to be interpreted as described in [RFC5226].

Internet-Draft          Negotiated-FF-DHE-for-TLS               May 2015


1.2.  Vocabulary

   The terms "DHE" or "FFDHE" are used in this document to refer to the
   finite-field-based Diffie-Hellman ephemeral key exchange mechanism in
   TLS.  TLS also supports elliptic-curve-based Diffie-Hellman (ECDHE)
   ephemeral key exchanges [RFC4492], but this document does not
   document their use.  A registry previously used only by ECHDE-capable
   implementations is expanded in this document to cover FFDHE groups as
   well.  "FFDHE ciphersuites" is used in this document to refer
   exclusively to ciphersuites with FFDHE key exchange mechanisms, but
   note that these suites are typically labeled with a TLS_DHE_ prefix.

2.  Named Group Overview

   We use previously-unallocated codepoints within the extension
   currently known as "elliptic_curves" (section 5.1.1. of [RFC4492]) to
   indicate known finite field groups.  The extension's semantics are
   expanded from "Supported Elliptic Curves" to "Supported Groups".  The
   semantics of the extension's data type (enum NamedCurve) is also
   expanded from "named curve" to "named group".

   Additionally, we explicitly relax the requirement about when the
   Supported Groups extension can be sent.  This extension MAY be sent
   by the client when either FFDHE or ECDHE ciphersuites are listed.

   Codepoints in the NamedCurve registry with a high byte of 0x01 (that
   is, between 256 and 511 inclusive) are set aside for FFDHE groups,
   though only a small number of them are initially defined and we do
   not expect many other FFDHE groups to be added to this range.  No
   codepoints outside of this range will be allocated to FFDHE groups.
   The new code points for the NamedCurve registry are:

           enum {
           // other already defined elliptic curves (see RFC 4492)
               ffdhe2048(256), ffdhe3072(257), ffdhe4096(258),
               ffdhe6144(259), ffdhe8192(260),
           //
           } NamedCurve;

   These additions to the Named Curve registry are described in detail
   in Appendix A.  They are all safe primes derived from the base of the
   natural logarithm ("e"), with the high and low 64 bits set to 1 for
   efficient Montgomery or Barrett reduction.

   The use of the base of the natural logarithm here is as a "nothing-
   up-my-sleeve" number.  The goal is to guarantee that the bits in the
   middle of the modulus are effectively random, while avoiding any
   suspicion that the primes have secretly been selected to be weak

   according to some secret criteria.  [RFC3526] used pi for this value.
   See Section 9.5 for reasons that this draft does not reuse pi.

3.  Client Behavior

   A TLS client that is capable of using strong finite field Diffie-
   Hellman groups can advertise its capabilities and its preferences for
   stronger key exchange by using this mechanism.

   The compatible client that wants to be able to negotiate strong FFDHE
   sends a "Supported Groups" extension (identified by type
   elliptic_curves(10) in [RFC4492]) in the ClientHello, and include a
   list of known FFDHE groups in the extension data, ordered from most
   preferred to least preferred.  If the client also supports and wants
   to offer ECDHE key exchange, it MUST use a single "Supported Groups"
   extension to include all supported groups (both ECDHE and FFDHE
   groups).  The ordering SHOULD be based on client preference, but see
   Section 6.1 for more nuance.

   A client that offers a "Supported Groups" extension containing an
   FFDHE group SHOULD also include at least one FFDHE ciphersuite in the
   Client Hello.

   A client that offers a group MUST be able and willing to perform a DH
   key exchange using that group.

   A client that offers one or more FFDHE groups in the "Supported
   Groups" extension and an FFDHE ciphersuite, and receives an FFDHE
   ciphersuite from the server SHOULD take the following steps upon
   receiving the ServerKeyExchange:

      For non-anonymous ciphersuites where the offered Certificate is
      valid and appropriate for the peer, validate the signature over
      the ServerDHParams.  If not valid, terminate the connection.

      If the signature over ServerDHParams is valid, compare the
      selected dh_p and dh_g with the FFDHE groups offered by the
      client.  If none of the offered groups match, the server is not
      compatible with this draft.  The client MAY decide to continue the
      connection if the selected group is acceptable under local policy,
      or it MAY decide to terminate the connection with a fatal
      insufficient_security(71) alert.

      If the client continues (either because the server offered a
      matching group, or because local policy permits the offered custom
      group), the client MUST verify that dh_Ys is in the range 1 <
      dh_Ys < dh_p - 1.  If dh_Ys is not in this range, the client MUST
      terminate the connection with a fatal handshake_failure(40) alert.

Internet-Draft          Negotiated-FF-DHE-for-TLS               May 2015


      If dh_Ys is in range, then the client SHOULD continue with the
      connection as usual.

3.1.  Client Local Policy on Custom Groups

   Compatible clients that are willing to accept FFDHE ciphersuites from
   non-compatible servers may have local policy about what custom FFDHE
   groups they are willing to accept.  This local policy presents a risk
   to clients, who may accept weakly-protected communications from
   misconfigured servers.

   This draft cannot enumerate all possible safe local policy (the
   safest may be to simply reject all custom groups), but compatible
   clients that accept some custom groups from the server MUST do at
   least cursory checks on group size, and may take other properties
   into consideration as well.

   A compatible client that accepts FFDHE ciphersuites using custom
   groups from non-compatible servers MUST reject any group with |dh_p|
   < 768 bits, and SHOULD reject any group with |dh_p| < 1024 bits.

   A compatible client that rejects a non-compatible server's custom
   group may decide to retry the connection while omitting all FFDHE
   ciphersuites from the ClientHello.  A client SHOULD only use this
   approach if it successfully verified the server's expected signature
   over the ServerDHParams, to avoid being forced by an active attacker
   into a non-preferred ciphersuite.

4.  Server Behavior

   If a compatible TLS server receives a Supported Groups extension from
   a client that includes any FFDHE group (i.e. any codepoint between
   256 and 511 inclusive, even if unknown to the server), and if none of
   the client-proposed FFDHE groups are known and acceptable to the
   server, then the server MUST NOT select an FFDHE ciphersuite.  In
   this case, the server SHOULD select an acceptable non-FFDHE
   ciphersuite from the client's offered list.  If the extension is
   present with FFDHE groups, none of the client's offered groups are
   acceptable by the server, and none of the client's proposed non-FFDHE
   ciphersuites are acceptable to the server, the server MUST end the
   connection with a fatal TLS alert of type insufficient_security(71).

   If at least one FFDHE ciphersuite is present in the client
   ciphersuite list, and the Supported Groups extension is either absent
   from the ClientHello entirely or contains no FFDHE groups (i.e. no
   codepoints between 256 and 511 inclusive), then the server knows that
   the client is not compatible with this document.  In this scenario, a
   server MAY select a non-FFDHE ciphersuite, or MAY select an FFDHE

   ciphersuite and offer an FFDHE group of its choice to the client as
   part of a traditional ServerKeyExchange.

   A compatible TLS server that receives the Supported Groups extension
   with FFDHE codepoints in it, and which selects an FFDHE ciphersuite
   MUST select one of the client's offered groups.  The server indicates
   the choice of group to the client by sending the group's parameters
   as usual in the ServerKeyExchange as described in section 7.4.3 of
   [RFC5246].

   A TLS server MUST NOT select a named FFDHE group that was not offered
   by a compatible client.

   A TLS server MUST NOT select an FFDHE ciphersuite if the client did
   not offer one, even if the client offered an FFDHE group in the
   Supported Groups extension.

   If a non-anonymous FFDHE ciphersuite is selected, and the TLS client
   has used this extension to offer an FFDHE group of comparable or
   greater strength than the server's public key, the server SHOULD
   select an FFDHE group at least as strong as the server's public key.
   For example, if the server has a 3072-bit RSA key, and the client
   offers only ffdhe2048 and ffdhe4096, the server SHOULD select
   ffdhe4096.

   When an FFDHE ciphersuite is selected, and the client sends a
   ClientKeyExchange, the server MUST verify that 1 < dh_Yc < dh_p - 1.
   If dh_Yc is out of range, the server MUST terminate the connection
   with fatal handshake_failure(40) alert.

5.  Optimizations

   In a key exchange with a successfully negotiated known FFDHE group,
   both peers know that the group in question uses a safe prime as a
   modulus, and that the group in use is of size p-1 or (p-1)/2.  This
   allows at least three optimizations that can be used to improve
   performance.

5.1.  Checking the Peer's Public Key

   Peers MUST validate each other's public key Y (dh_Ys offered by the
   server or dh_Yc offered by the client) by ensuring that 1 < Y < p-1.
   This simple check ensures that the remote peer is properly behaved
   and isn't forcing the local system into the 2-element subgroup.

   To reach the same assurance with an unknown group, the client would
   need to verify the primality of the modulus, learn the factors of

Internet-Draft          Negotiated-FF-DHE-for-TLS               May 2015


   p-1, and test both the generator g and Y against each factor to avoid
   small subgroup attacks.

5.2.  Short Exponents

   Traditional Finite Field Diffie-Hellman has each peer choose their
   secret exponent from the range [2,p-2].  Using exponentiation by
   squaring, this means each peer must do roughly 2*log_2(p)
   multiplications, twice (once for the generator and once for the
   peer's public key).

   Peers concerned with performance may also prefer to choose their
   secret exponent from a smaller range, doing fewer multiplications,
   while retaining the same level of overall security.  Each named group
   indicates its approximate security level, and provides a lower-bound
   on the range of secret exponents that should preserve it.  For
   example, rather than doing 2*2*3072 multiplications for a ffdhe3072
   handshake, each peer can choose to do 2*2*275 multiplications by
   choosing their secret exponent from the range [2^274,2^275] (that is,
   a m-bit integer where m is at least 275) and still keep the same
   approximate security level.

   A similar short-exponent approach is suggested in SSH's Diffie-
   Hellman key exchange (See section 6.2 of [RFC4419]).

5.3.  Table Acceleration

   Peers wishing to further accelerate FFDHE key exchange can also pre-
   compute a table of powers of the generator of a known group.  This is
   a memory vs. time tradeoff, and it only accelerates the first
   exponentiation of the ephemeral DH exchange (the fixed-base
   exponentiation).  The variable-base exponentiation (using the peer's
   public exponent as a base) still needs to be calculated as normal.

6.  Operational Considerations

6.1.  Preference Ordering

   The ordering of named groups in the Supported Groups extension may
   contain some ECDHE groups and some FFDHE groups.  These SHOULD be
   ranked in the order preferred by the client.

   However, the ClientHello also contains list of desired ciphersuites,
   also ranked in preference order.  This presents the possibility of
   conflicted preferences.  For example, if the ClientHello contains a
   CipherSuite with two choices in order
   <TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,
   TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA> and the Supported Groups



Gillmor                 Expires November 13, 2015               [Page 8]


Internet-Draft          Negotiated-FF-DHE-for-TLS               May 2015


   Extension contains two choices in order <secp256r1,ffdhe3072> then
   there is a clear contradiction.  Clients SHOULD NOT present such a
   contradiction since it does not represent a sensible ordering.  A
   server that encounters such an contradiction when selecting between
   an ECDHE or FFDHE key exchange mechanism while trying to respect
   client preferences SHOULD give priority to the Supported Groups
   extension (in the example case, it should select
   TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA with secp256r1), but MAY resolve
   the contradiction any way it sees fit.

   More subtly, clients MAY interleave preferences between ECDHE and
   FFDHE groups, for example if stronger groups are preferred regardless
   of cost, but weaker groups are acceptable, the Supported Groups
   extension could consist of:
   <ffdhe8192,secp384p1,ffdhe3072,secp256r1>.  In this example, with the
   same CipherSuite offered as the previous example, a server configured
   to respect client preferences and with support for all listed groups
   SHOULD select TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA with ffdhe8192.  A
   server configured to respect client preferences and with support for
   only secp384p1 and ffdhe3072 SHOULD select
   TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA with secp384p1.

8.  IANA Considerations

   IANA maintains the registry currently known as EC Named Curves
   (originally defined in [RFC4492] and updated by [RFC7027]) at [1].

   This document expands the semantics of this registry slightly, to
   include groups based on finite fields in addition to groups based on
   elliptic curves.  IANA should add a range designation to that
   registry, indicating that values from 256-511 (inclusive) are set
   aside for "Finite Field Diffie-Hellman groups", and that all other
   entries in the registry are "Elliptic curve groups".

   This document allocates five well-defined codepoints in the registry
   for specific Finite Field Diffie-Hellman groups defined in
   Appendix A.

9.  Security Considerations

9.1.  Negotiation resistance to active attacks

   Because the contents of the Supported Groups extension are hashed in
   the finished message, an active MITM that tries to filter or omit
   groups will cause the handshake to fail, but possibly not before
   getting the peer to do something they would not otherwise have done.

   An attacker who impersonates the server can try to do any of the
   following:

      Pretend that a non-compatible server is actually capable of this
      extension, and select a group from the client's list, causing the
      client to select a group it is willing to negotiate.  It is
      unclear how this would be an effective attack.

      Pretend that a compatible server is actually non-compatible by
      negotiating a non-FFDHE ciphersuite.  This is no different than
      MITM ciphersuite filtering.

      Pretend that a compatible server is actually non-compatible by
      negotiating a DHE ciphersuite, with a custom (perhaps weak) group
      selected by the attacker.  This is no worse than the current
      scenario, and would require the attacker to be able to sign the
      ServerDHParams, which should not be possible without access to the
      server's secret key.

   An attacker who impersonates the client can try to do the following:

Internet-Draft          Negotiated-FF-DHE-for-TLS               May 2015


      Pretend that a compatible client is not compatible (e.g., by not
      offering the Supported Groups extension, or by replacing the
      Supported Groups extension with one that includes no FFDHE
      groups).  This could cause the server to negotiate a weaker DHE
      group during the handshake, or to select a non-FFDHE ciphersuite,
      but it would fail to complete during the final check of the
      Finished message.

      Pretend that a non-compatible client is compatible (e.g., by
      adding the Supported Groups extension, or by adding FFDHE groups
      to the extension).  This could cause the server to select a
      particular named group in the ServerKeyExchange, or to avoid
      selecting an FFDHE ciphersuite.  The peers would fail to compute
      the final check of the Finished message.

      Change the list of groups offered by the client (e.g., by removing
      the stronger of the set of groups offered).  This could cause the
      server to negotiate a weaker group than desired, but again should
      be caught by the check in the Finished message.

9.2.  Group strength considerations

   TLS implementations using FFDHE key exchange should consider the
   strength of the group they negotiate.  The strength of the selected
   group is one of the factors that define the connection's resiliance
   against attacks on the session's confidentiality and integrity, since
   the session keys are derived from the DHE handshake.

   While attacks on integrity must generally happen while the session is
   in progress, attacks against session confidentiality can happen
   significantly later, if the entire TLS session is stored for offline
   analysis.  Therefore, FFDHE groups should be selected by clients and
   servers based on confidentiality guarantees they need.  Sessions
   which need extremely long-term confidentiality should prefer stronger
   groups.

   [ENISA] provides rough estimates of group resistance to attack, and
   recommends that forward-looking implementations ("future systems")
   should use FFDHE group sizes of at least 3072 bits.  ffdhe3072 is
   intended for use in these implementations.

   Other sources (e.g., [NIST]) estimate the security levels of the DLOG
   problem to be slightly more difficult than [ENISA].  This document's
   suggested minimum exponent sizes in Appendix A for implementations
   that use the short exponents optimization (Section 5.2) are
   deliberately conservative to account for the range of these
   estimates.

9.3.  Finite-Field DHE only

   Note that this document specifically targets only finite field-based
   Diffie-Hellman ephemeral key exchange mechanisms.  It does not cover
   the non-ephemeral DH key exchange mechanisms, nor does it address
   elliptic curve DHE (ECDHE) key exchange, which is defined in
   [RFC4492].

   Measured by computational cost to the TLS peers, ECDHE appears today
   to offer much a stronger key exchange mechanism than FFDHE.

9.4.  Deprecating weak groups

   Advances in hardware or in finite field cryptanalysis may cause some
   of the negotiated groups to not provide the desired security margins,
   as indicated by the estimated work factor of an adversary to discover
   the premaster secret (and may therefore compromise the
   confidentiality and integrity of the TLS session).

   Revisions of this document should mark known-weak groups as
   explicitly deprecated for use in TLS, and should update the estimated
   work factor needed to break the group, if the cryptanalysis has
   changed.  Implementations that require strong confidentiality and
   integrity guarantees should avoid using deprecated groups and should
   be updated when the estimated security margins are updated.

9.5.  Choice of groups

   Other lists of named finite field Diffie-Hellman groups
   [STRONGSWAN-IKE] exist.  This draft chooses to not reuse them for
   several reasons:

      Using the same groups in multiple protocols increases the value
      for an attacker with the resources to crack any single group.

      The IKE groups include weak groups like MODP768 which are
      unacceptable for secure TLS traffic.

      Mixing group parameters across multiple implementations leaves
      open the possibility of some sort of cross-protocol attack.  This
      shouldn't be relevant for ephemeral scenarios, and even with non-
      ephemeral keying, services shouldn't share keys; however, using
      different groups avoids these failure modes entirely.

Internet-Draft          Negotiated-FF-DHE-for-TLS               May 2015


9.6.  Timing attacks

   Any implementation of finite field Diffie-Hellman key exchange should
   use constant-time modular-exponentiation implementations.  This is
   particularly true for those implementations that ever re-use DHE
   secret keys (so-called "semi-static" ephemeral keying) or share DHE
   secret keys across a multiple machines (e.g., in a load-balancer
   situation).

9.7.  Replay attacks from non-negotiated FFDHE

   [SECURE-RESUMPTION], [CROSS-PROTOCOL], and [SSL3-ANALYSIS] all show a
   malicious peer using a bad FFDHE group to maneuver a client into
   selecting a pre-master secret of the peer's choice, which can be
   replayed to another server using a non-FFDHE key exchange, and can
   then be bootstrapped to replay client authentication.

   To prevent this attack (barring the fixes proposed in
   [SESSION-HASH]), a client would need not only to implement this
   draft, but also to reject non-negotiated FFDHE ciphersuites whose
   group structure it cannot afford to verify.  Such a client would need
   to abort the initial handshake and reconnect to the server in
   question without listing any FFDHE ciphersuites on the subsequent
   connection.

   This tradeoff may be too costly for most TLS clients today, but may
   be a reasonable choice for clients performing client certificate
   authentication, or who have other reason to be concerned about
   server-controlled pre-master secrets.

9.8.  Forward Secrecy

   One of the main reasons to prefer FFDHE ciphersuites is Forward
   Secrecy, the ability to resist decryption even if when the endpoint's
   long-term secret key (usually RSA) is revealed in the future.

   This property depends on both sides of the connection discarding
   their ephemeral keys promptly.  Implementations should wipe their
   FFDHE secret key material from memory as soon as it is no longer
   needed, and should never store it in persistent storage.

   Forward secrecy also depends on the strength of the Diffie-Hellman
   group; using a very strong symmetric cipher like AES256 with a
   forward-secret ciphersuite, but generating the keys with a much
   weaker group like dhe2048 simply moves the adversary's cost from
   attacking the symmetric cipher to attacking the dh_Ys or dh_Yc
   ephemeral keyshares.




Gillmor                 Expires November 13, 2015              [Page 13]


Internet-Draft          Negotiated-FF-DHE-for-TLS               May 2015


   If the goal is to provide forward secrecy, attention should be paid
   to all parts of the ciphersuite selection process, both key exchange
   and symmetric cipher choice.

9.9.  False Start

   Clients capable of TLS False Start [FALSE-START] may receive a
   proposed FFDHE group from a server that is attacker-controlled.  In
   particular, the attacker can modify the ClientHello to strip the
   proposed FFDHE groups, which may cause the server to offer a weaker
   FFDHE group than it should, and this will not be detected until
   receipt of the server's Finished message.  This could cause a client
   using the False Start protocol modification to send data encrypted
   under a weak key agreement.

   Clients should have their own classification of FFDHE groups that are
   "cryptographically strong" in the same sense described in the
   description of symmetric ciphers in [FALSE-START], and SHOULD offer
   at least one of these in the initial handshake if they contemplate
   using the False Start protocol modification with an FFDHE
   ciphersuite.

   Compatible clients performing a full handshake MUST NOT use the False
   Start protocol modification if the server selects an FFDHE
   ciphersuite but sends a group that is not cryptographically strong
   from the client's perspective.

10.  Privacy Considerations

10.1.  Client fingerprinting

   This extension provides a few additional bits of information to
   distinguish between classes of TLS clients (see e.g.
   [PANOPTICLICK]).  To minimize this sort of fingerprinting, clients
   SHOULD support all named groups at or above their minimum security
   threshhold.  New named groups SHOULD NOT be added to the registry
   without consideration of the cost of browser fingerprinting.

   exchange at the given security level.  It is not recommended to add

   The primes in these finite field groups are all safe primes, that is,
   a prime p is a safe prime when q = (p-1)/2 is also prime.  Where e is
   the base of the natural logarithm, and square brackets denote the
   floor operation, the groups which initially populate this registry
   are derived for a given bitlength b by finding the lowest positive
   integer X that creates a safe prime p where:

    p = 2^b - 2^{b-64} + {[2^{b-130} e] + X } * 2^64 - 1

   New additions of FFDHE groups to this registry may use this same
   derivation (e.g., with different bitlengths) or may choose their
   parameters in a different way, but must be clear about how the
   parameters were derived.

   New additions of FFDHE groups MUST use a safe prime as the modulus to
   enable the inexpensive peer verification described in Section 5.1.

   The estimated symmetric-equivalent strength of this group is 192
   bits.

   Peers using ffdhe8192 that want to optimize their key exchange with a
   short exponent (Section 5.2) should choose a secret key of at least
   400 bits.
