1.  Introduction

   The Packetization Layer Path MTU Discovery (PMTUD) specification
   [RFC4821] describes a method to discover the Path MTU but does not
   describe a practical protocol to do so with UDP.

   This document only describes how probing mechanisms are implemented
   with Session Traversal Utilities for NAT (STUN).  The algorithm to
   find the Path MTU is described in [RFC4821].

   The STUN usage defined in this document for Path MTU Discovery
   (PMTUD) between a client and a server permits proper operations of
   UDP-based applications in the network.  It also simplifies
   troubleshooting and has multiple other applications across a wide
   variety of technologies.

   Additional network characteristics like the network path (using the
   STUN Traceroute mechanism described in
   [I-D.martinsen-tram-stuntrace]) and bandwidth availability (using the
   mechanism described in [I-D.martinsen-tram-turnbandwidthprobe]) can
   be discovered using complementary techniques.

2.  Overview of Operations

   This section is meant to be informative only.  It is not intended as
   a replacement for [RFC4821].

   A UDP endpoint that uses this specification to discover the Path MTU
   over UDP and knows that the endpoint it is communicating with also
   supports this specification can choose to use either the Simple
   Probing mechanism (as described in Section 4.1) or the Complete
   Probing mechanism (as described in Section 4.2).  The selection of
   which Probing Mechanism to use is dependent on performance and
   security and complexity trade-offs.

   If the Simple Probing mechanism is chosen, then it initiates Probe
   transactions, as shown in Figure 1, which increase in size until
   transactions timeout, indicating that the Path MTU has been exceeded.
   It then uses that information to update the Path MTU.

                     Figure 1: Simple Probing Example

   If the Complete Probing mechanism (as described in Section 4.2) is
   chosen, then it sends Probe Indications of various sizes interleaved
   with UDP packets sent by the UDP protocol.  The Client then sends a
   Report Request for the ordered list of identifiers for the UDP
   packets and Probe Indications received by the Server.  The Client
   then compares the list returned in the Report Response with its own
   list of identifiers for the UDP packets and Probe Indications it
   sent.  The Client then uses that comparison to find which Probe
   Indications were dropped by the network as a result of their size.
   It then uses that information to update the Path MTU.

3.  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].  When these
   words are not in ALL CAPS (such as "must" or "Must"), they have their
   usual English meanings, and are not to be interpreted as RFC 2119 key
   words.

4.  Probing Mechanisms

   A client MUST NOT send a probe if it does not have knowledge that the
   server supports this specification.  This is done either by external
   signalling or by a mechanism specific to the UDP protocol to which
   PMTUD capabilities are added or by one of the mechanisms specified in
   Section 5.

   The Probing mechanism is used to discover the Path MTU in one
   direction only, from the client to the server.

   Two Probing mechanisms are described, a Simple Probing mechanism and
   a more complete mechanism that can converge quicker and find an
   appropriate PMTU in the presence of congestion.  Additionally, the
   Simple Probing mechanism does not require authentication, whereas the
   complete mechanism does.

   Implementations supporting this specification MUST implement the
   server side of both the Simple Probing mechanism (Section 4.1) and
   the Complete Probing mechanism (Section 4.2).

   Implementations supporting this specification MUST implement the
   client side of the Complete Probing mechanism.  They MAY implement
   the client side of the Simple Probing mechanism.

   The Simple Probing mechanism is implemented by sending a Probe
   Request with a PADDING [RFC5780] attribute and the DF bit set over
   UDP.  A router on the path to the server can reject this request with
   an ICMP message or drop it.  The client SHOULD cease retransmissions
   after 3 missing responses.

   The Complete Probing mechanism is implemented by sending one or more
   Probe Indications with a PADDING attribute and the DF bit set over
   UDP followed by a Report Request to the same server.  A router on the
   path to the server can reject this Indication with an ICMP message or
   drop it.  The server keeps a chronologically ordered list of
   identifiers for all packets received (including retransmitted
   packets) and sends this list back to the client in the Report
   Response.  The client analyzes this list to find which packets were

Internet-Draft                 STUN PMTUD                   October 2016


   not received.  Because UDP packets do not contain an identifier, the
   Complete Probing mechanism needs a way to identify each packet
   received.

   Some protocols may already have a way of identifying each individual
   UDP packet, in which case these identifiers SHOULD be used in the
   IDENTIFIERS attribute of the Report Response.  While there are other
   possible packet identification schemes, this document describes two
   different ways to identify a specific packet.

   In the first packet identification mechanism, the server computes a
   checksum over each packet received and sends back to the sender the
   list of checksums ordered chronologically.  The client compares this
   list to its own list of checksums.

   In the second packet identification mechanism, the client adds a
   sequence number in front of each UDP packet sent.  The server sends
   back the chronologically ordered list of sequence numbers received
   that the client then compares with its own list.

4.1.  Simple Probing Mechanism

4.1.1.  Sending a Probe Request

   A client forms a Probe Request by following the rules in Section 7.1
   of [RFC5389].  The Probe transaction MAY be authenticated.  The
   client adds a PADDING [RFC5780] attribute with a length that, when
   added to the IP and UDP headers and the other STUN components, is
   equal to the Selected Probe Size, as defined in [RFC4821]
   Section 7.3.  The client MUST add the FINGERPRINT attribute.

   Then the client sends the Probe Request to the server over UDP with
   the DF bit set.  For the purpose of this transaction, the Rc
   parameter specified in Section 7.2.1 of [RFC5389] is set to 3.  The
   initial value for RTO stays at 500 ms.

4.1.2.  Receiving a Probe Request

   A server receiving a Probe Request MUST process it as specified in
   [RFC5389].

   The server then creates a Probe Response.  The server MUST add the
   FINGERPRINT attribute.  The server then sends the response to the
   client.

Internet-Draft                 STUN PMTUD                   October 2016


4.1.3.  Receiving a Probe Response

   A client receiving a Probe Response MUST process it as specified in
   [RFC5389].  If a response is received this is interpreted as a Probe
   Success, as defined in [RFC4821] Section 7.6.1.  If an ICMP packet
   "Fragmentation needed" is received then this is interpreted as a
   Probe Failure, as defined in [RFC4821] Section 7.6.2.  If the Probe
   transactions times out, then this is interpreted as a Probe
   Inconclusive, as defined in [RFC4821] Section 7.6.4.

4.2.  Complete Probing Mechanism

4.2.1.  Sending the Probe Indications and Report Request

   A client forms a Probe Indication by following the rules in [RFC5389]
   Section 7.1.  The client adds to the Probe Indication a PADDING
   attribute with a size that, when added to the IP and UDP headers and
   the other STUN components, is equal to the Selected Probe Size, as
   defined in [RFC4821] Section 7.3.  If the authentication mechanism
   permits it, then the Indication MUST be authenticated.  The client
   MUST add the FINGERPRINT attribute.

   Then the client sends the Probe Indication to the server over UDP
   with the DF bit set.

   Then the client forms a Report Request by following the rules in
   [RFC5389] Section 7.1.  The Report transaction MUST be authenticated.
   The client MUST add the FINGERPRINT attribute.

   Then the client waits half the RTO, if it is known, or 250 ms after
   sending the last Probe Indication and then sends the Report Request
   to the server over UDP.

4.2.2.  Receiving an ICMP Packet

   If an ICMP packet "Fragmentation needed" is received then this is
   interpreted as a Probe Failure, as defined in [RFC4821] Section 7.5.

4.2.3.  Receiving a Probe Indication and Report Request

   A server supporting this specification will keep the identifiers of
   all packets received in a chronologically ordered list.  The same
   identifier can appear multiple times in the list because of
   retransmissions.  The maximum size of this list is calculated such
   that when the list is added to the Report Response, the total size of
   the packet does not exceed the unknown Path MTU, as defined in
   [RFC5389] Section 7.1.  Older identifiers are removed when new
   identifiers are added to a list that is already full.



Petit-Huguenin & SalgueirExpires April 30, 2017                 [Page 7]


Internet-Draft                 STUN PMTUD                   October 2016


   A server receiving a Report Request MUST process it as specified in
   [RFC5389].

   The server creates a Report Response and adds an IDENTIFIERS
   attribute that contains the list of all identifiers received so far.
   The server MUST add the FINGERPRINT attribute.  The server then sends
   the response to the client.

   The exact content of the IDENTIFIERS attribute depends on what type
   of identifiers have been chosen for the protocol.  Each protocol
   adding PMTUD capabilities as specified by this specification MUST
   describe the format of the contents of the IDENTIFIERS attribute,
   unless it is using one of the formats described in this
   specification.

4.2.4.  Receiving a Report Response

   A client receiving a Report Response processes it as specified in
   [RFC5389].  If the response IDENTIFIERS attribute contains the
   identifier of the Probe Indication, then this is interpreted as a
   Probe Success for this probe, as defined in [RFC4821] Section 7.5.
   If the Probe Indication identifier cannot be found in the Report
   Response, this is interpreted as a Probe Failure, as defined in
   [RFC4821] Section 7.5.  If the Probe Indication identifier cannot be
   found in the Report Response but identifiers for other packets sent
   before or after the Probe Indication cannot also be found, this is
   interpreted as a Probe Inconclusive, as defined in [RFC4821]
   Section 7.5.  If the Report Transaction times out, this is
   interpreted as a Full-Stop Timeout, as defined in [RFC4821]
   Section 3.

4.2.5.  Using Checksums as Packet Identifiers

   When using a checksum as a packet identifier, the client calculates
   the checksum for each packet sent over UDP and keeps this checksum in
   an ordered list.  The server does the same thing and sends back this
   list in the Report Response.

   The algorithm used to calculate the checksum is the same as the
   algorithm used for the FINGERPRINT attribute.  The contents of the
   IDENTIFIERS attribute is a list of 4 byte numbers, each using the
   same encoding that is used for the contents of the FINGERPRINT
   attribute.

   It could have been possible to use the checksum generated in the UDP
   checksum for this, but this value is generally not accessible to
   applications.  Also, sometimes the checksum is not calculated or is
   off-loaded to network hardware.

4.2.6.  Using Sequence Numbers as Packet Identifiers

   When using sequence numbers, a small header similar to the TURN
   ChannelData header is added in front of all non-STUN packets.  The
   sequence number is monotonically incremented by one for each packet
   sent.  The server collects the sequence number of the packets sent.

   The Channel Number is always 0xFFFF.  The header values are encoded
   using network order.

   The contents of the IDENTIFIERS attribute is a list of 4 byte
   numbers, each containing a sequence number encoded using network
   order.

5.  Probe Support Signaling Mechanisms

   The PMTUD mechanism described in this document is intended to be used
   by any UDP-based protocols that do not have built-in PMTUD
   capabilities, irrespective of whether those UDP-based protocols are
   STUN-based or not.  So the manner in which a specific protocol
   discovers that it is safe to send PMTUD probes is largely dependent
   on the details of that specific protocol, with the exception of the
   Implicit Mechanism described below, which applies to any protocol.

5.1.  Explicit Probe Support Signaling Mechanism

   Some of these mechanisms can use a separate signalling mechanism (for
   instance, an SDP attribute in an Offer/Answer exchange [RFC3264]), or
   an optional flag that can be set in the protocol that is augmented
   with PMTUD capabilities.  STUN Usages that can benefit from PMTUD
   capabilities can signal in-band that they support probing by
   inserting a PMTUD-SUPPORTED attribute in some STUN methods.  The

Internet-Draft                 STUN PMTUD                   October 2016


   decision of which methods support this attribute is left to each
   specific STUN Usage.

   UDP-based protocols that want to use any of these mechanisms,
   including the PMTUD-SUPPORTED attribute, to signal PMTUD capabilities
   MUST ensure that it cannot be used to launch an amplification attack.
   For example, using authentication can ensure this.

5.2.  Implicit Probe Support Signaling Mechanism

   As a result of the fact that all endpoints implementing this
   specification are both clients and servers, a Probe Request or
   Indication received by an endpoint implicitly signals that its sender
   MAY be used to probe the Path MTU in the reverse direction.

   The Probe Request or Indication that are used to implicitly signal
   probing support in the reverse direction MUST be authenticated to
   prevent amplification attacks.

6.  STUN Attributes

6.1.  IDENTIFIERS

   The IDENTIFIERS attribute carries a chronologically ordered list of
   UDP packet identifiers.  Each protocol has to define how these
   identifiers are acquired and formatted, therefore the contents of the
   IDENTIFIERS attribute is opaque.

6.2.  PMTUD-SUPPORTED

   The PMTUD-SUPPORTED attribute indicates that its sender supports this
   specification.  This attribute is empty.

7.  Security Considerations

   The PMTUD mechanism described in this document does not introduce any
   specific security considerations beyond those described in [RFC4821].

   The attacks described in Section 11 of [RFC4821] apply equally to the
   mechanism described in this document.

   The Simple Probing mechanism may be used without authentication
   because this usage by itself cannot trigger an amplification attack
   because the Probe Response is smaller than the Probe Request.  An
   unauthenticated Simple Probing mechanism cannot be used in
   conjunction with the Implicit Probing Support Signaling mechanism in
   order to prevent amplification attacks.

8.  IANA Considerations

   This specification defines two new STUN methods and two new STUN
   attributes.  IANA added these new protocol elements to the "STUN
   Parameters Registry" created by [RFC5389].

8.1.  New STUN Methods

   This section lists the codepoints for the new STUN methods defined in
   this specification.  See Sections Section 4.1 and Section 4.2 for the
   semantics of these new methods.

      0xXXX : Probe

      0xXXX : Report

8.2.  New STUN Attributes

   This document defines the IDENTIFIERS STUN attribute, described in
   Section 6.1.  IANA has allocated the comprehension-required codepoint
   0xXXXX for this attribute.

   This document also defines the PMTUD-SUPPORTED STUN attribute,
   described in Section 6.2.  IANA has allocated the comprehension-
   optional codepoint 0xXXXX for this attribute.
