Internet-Draft   Re-keying Mechanisms for Symmetric Keys   February 2017


1.  Introduction

   Common attacks base their success on the ability to get many
   encryptions under a single key.  If encryption is performed under a
   single key, there is a certain maximum threshold number of messages
   that can be safely encrypted.  These restrictions can come either
   from combinatorial properties of the used cipher modes of operation
   (for example, birthday attack [BDJR]) or from particular
   cryptographic attacks on the used block cipher (for example, linear
   cryptanalysis [Matsui]).  Moreover, most strict restrictions here
   follow from the need to resist side-channel attacks.  The adversary's
   opportunity to obtain an essential amount of data processed with a
   single key leads not only to theoretic but also to practical
   vulnerabilities (see [BL]).  Therefore, when the total size of a
   plaintext processed with a single key reaches threshold values, this
   key cannot be used anymore and certain procedures with encryption
   keys are needed.

   The most simple and obvious way for overcoming the key lifetimes
   limitations is a renegotiation of a regular session key.  However,
   this reduces the total performance since it usually entails the
   frequent use of a public key cryptography.

   Another way is to use a transformation of a previously negotiated
   key.  This specification presents the description of such mechanisms
   and the description of the cases when these mechanisms should be
   applied.

4.  External Re-keying Mechanisms

   This section presents an approach to increase the lifetime of
   negotiated keys after processing a limited number of integral
   messages.  It provides an external parallel and serial re-keying
   mechanisms (see [AbBell]).  These mechanisms use an initial
   (negotiated) key as a master key, which is never used directly for
   the data processing but is used for key generation.  Such mechanisms
   operate outside of the base modes of operations and do not change
   them at all, therefore they are called "external re-keying" in this
   document.

4.1.  Parallel Constructions

   The main idea behind external re-keying with parallel construction is
   presented in Fig.1:

      K^i = ExtSerialH(K*, i) = HKDF-Expand(K*_i, label1, k),

   where i = 1, ... , t, HKDF-Expand is an HMAC-based key derivation
   function, described in [RFC5869], K*_i is calculated as follows:

      K*_1 = K*,

      K*_{j+1} = HKDF-Expand(K*_j, label2, k), where j = 1, ... , t-1,

   where label1 and label2 are different strings (can be a zero-length
   strings) that are defined by a specific protocol (see, for example,
   TLS 1.3 updating traffic keys algorithm [TLSDraft]).

5.  Internal Re-keying Mechanisms

   This section presents an approach to increase the lifetime of
   negotiated key by re-keying during each separate message processing.
   It provides an internal re-keying mechanisms called ACPKM and ACPKM-
   Master that do not use and use a master key respectively.  Such
   mechanisms are integrated into the base modes of operations and can
   be considered as the base mode extensions, therefore they are called
   "internal re-keying" in this document.

5.1.  Constructions that Do Not Require Master Key

   This section describes the block cipher modes that uses the ACPKM re-
   keying mechanism (described in Section 5.1.1), which does not use
   master key: an initial key is used directly for the encryption of the
   data.

5.1.1.  ACPKM Re-keying Mechanisms

   This section defines periodical key transformation with no master key
   which is called ACPKM re-keying mechanism.  This mechanism can be
   applied to one of the basic encryption modes (CTR and GCM block
   cipher modes) for getting an extension of this encryption mode that
   uses periodical key transformation with no master key.  This
   extension can be considered as a new encryption mode.

Internet-Draft   Re-keying Mechanisms for Symmetric Keys   February 2017


   An additional parameter that defines the functioning of basic
   encryption modes with the ACPKM re-keying mechanism is the section
   size N.  The value of N is measured in bits and is fixed within a
   specific protocol based on the requirements of the system capacity
   and key lifetime (some recommendations on choosing N will be provided
   in Section 7).  The section size N MUST be divisible by the block
   size n.

   The main idea behind internal re-keying with no master key is
   presented in Fig.3:


   Lifetime of a key = L,
   section size = const = N,
   maximum message size = m_max.

   is in V_r, r <= N).  The first section is processed with the initial
   key K^1 = K.  To process the (i+1)-th section the K^{i+1} key value
   is calculated using ACPKM transformation as follows:

      K^{i+1} = ACPKM(K^i) = MSB_k(E_{K^i}(W_1) | ... | E_{K^i}(W_J)),

   where J = ceil(k/n), W_t = phi_c(D_t) for any t in {1, ... ,J} and
   D_1, D_2, ... , D_J are in V_n and are calculated as follows:

   The key for computing values E_{K}(ICB_0) and H is not updated and is
   equal to the initial key K.

5.2.  Constructions that Require Master Key

   This section describes the block cipher modes that uses the ACPKM-
   Master re-keying mechanism (described in Section 5.2.1), which use
   the initial key K as a master key K*, so K is never used directly for
   the data processing but is used for key derivation.

5.2.1.  ACPKM-Master Key Generation from the Master Key

   This section defines periodical key transformation with master key K*
   which is called ACPKM-Master re-keying mechanism.  This mechanism can
   be applied to one of the basic encryption modes (CTR, GCM, CBC, CFB,
   OFB, OMAC encryption modes) for getting an extension of this
   encryption mode that uses periodical key transformation with master
   key.  This extension can be considered as a new encryption mode.

   Additional parameters that defines the functioning of basic
   encryption modes with the ACPKM-Master re-keying mechanism are the
   section size N and change frequency T* of the key K*.  The values of
   N and T* are measured in bits and are fixed within a specific
   protocol based on the requirements of the system capacity and key
   lifetime (some recommendations on choosing N and T* will be provided
   in Section 7).  The section size N MUST be divisible by the block
   size n.  The key frequency T* MUST be divisible by n.

   The main idea behind internal re-keying with master key is presented
   in Fig.4:

5.2.3.  GCM Mode Key Meshing

   This section defines a GCM-ACPKM-Master encryption mode that uses
   internal ACPKM-Master re-keying mechanism for the periodical key
   transformation.

   The GCM-ACPKM-Master encryption mode can be considered as the
   extended by the ACPKM-Master re-keying mechanism basic encryption
   mode GCM (see [GCM]).

   The GCM-ACPKM-Master encryption mode can be used with the following
   parameters:

   o  n in {128, 256};

   o  128 <= k <= 512;

   o  the number of bits c in a specific part of the block to be
      incremented is such that 32 <= c <= 3/4 n;

   o  authentication tag length t.

   The key material K[j] that is used for one section processing is
   equal to K^j, |K^j| = k bits, that is calculated as follows:

      K^1 | ... | K^j | ... | K^l = ACPKM-Master(T*, K*, k*l).

   The GCM-ACPKM-Master mode encryption and decryption procedures are

   The * operation on (pairs of) the 2^n possible blocks corresponds to
   the multiplication operation for the binary Galois (finite) field of
   2^n elements defined by the polynomial f as follows (by analogy with
   [GCM]):

   n = 128:  f = a^128 + a^7 + a^2 + a^1 + 1.

   n = 256:  f = a^256 + a^10 + a^5 + a^2 + 1.

   The initial vector IV value for each message that is encrypted under
   the given key must be chosen in a unique manner.

   The message size m MUST NOT exceed (2^{n/2-1}*n*N / k) bits.

5.2.4.  CBC Mode Key Meshing

   This section defines a CBC-ACPKM-Master encryption mode that uses
   internal ACPKM-Master re-keying mechanism for the periodical key
   transformation.

   The CBC-ACPKM-Master encryption mode can be considered as the
   extended by the ACPKM-Master re-keying mechanism basic encryption
   mode CBC (see [MODES]).

   The CBC-ACPKM-Master encryption mode can be used with the following
   parameters:

   o  64 <= n <= 512;

   o  128 <= k <= 512.

   In the specification of the CBC-ACPKM-Master mode the plaintext and
   ciphertext must be a sequence of one or more complete data blocks.
   If the data string to be encrypted does not initially satisfy this
   property, then it MUST be padded to form complete data blocks.  The
   padding methods are outside the scope of this document.  An example
   of a padding method can be found in Appendix A of [MODES].

   The key material K[j] that is used for one section processing is
   equal to K^j, |K^j| = k bits.

   We will denote by D_{K} the decryption function which is a
   permutation inverse to the E_{K}.

   The CBC-ACPKM-Master mode encryption and decryption procedures are
   defined as follows:

Internet-Draft   Re-keying Mechanisms for Symmetric Keys   February 2017


   The OMAC-ACPKM-Master encryption mode can be considered as the
   extended by the ACPKM-Master re-keying mechanism basic message
   authentication code calculation mode OMAC (see [RFC4493]).

   The OMAC-ACPKM-Master message authentication code calculation mode
   can be used with the following parameters:

   o  n in {64, 128, 256};

   o  128 <= k <= 512.

   The key material K[j] that is used for one section processing is
   equal to K^j | K^j_1, where |K^j| = k and |K^j_1| = n.

   The following is a specification of the subkey generation process of
   OMAC:


 +---------------------------------------------------------------------+
 | Generate_Subkey(K, r)                                               |
 |---------------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Input:                                                              |
 |  - Key K,                                                           |
 |  Output:                                                            |
 |  - Key [K].                                                         |
 |---------------------------------------------------------------------|
 |   1. If r = n then return K                                         |
 |   2. If r < n then                                                  |
 |          if MSB_1(K1) = 0                                           |
 |              return K1 << 1                                         |
 |          else                                                       |
 |              return (K1 << 1) (xor) R_n                             |
 |                                                                     |
 +---------------------------------------------------------------------+

   Where R_n takes the following values:

   o  n = 64: R_{64} = 0^{59} | 11011;

   o  n = 128: R_{128} = 0^{120} | 10000111;

   o  n = 256: R_{256} = 0^{145} | 10000100101.

   The OMAC-ACPKM-Master message authentication code calculation mode is
   defined as follows:

   The message size m MUST NOT exceed 2^{n/2}*n^2*N / (k + n) bits.

6.  Joint Usage of External and Internal Re-keying

   Any mechanism described in Section 4 can be used with any mechanism
   described in Section 5.

7.  Security Considerations

7.1.  Principles of Choice of Constructions and Security Parameters

   External re-keying mechanism is RECOMMENDED to be used in protocols
   that process pretty small messages (e.g.  TLS).

   Internal re-keying mechanism is RECOMMENDED to be used in protocols
   that can process large messages (e.g.  IPSec).

   For the protocols that process messages of different lengths it is
   RECOMMENDED to use joint methods described in Section 6.

Internet-Draft   Re-keying Mechanisms for Symmetric Keys   February 2017


7.2.  Requirements For Base Primitives

   Re-keying should be used to increase "a priori" security properties
   of ciphers in hoslile environments (e.g. with side-channel
   adversaries).  If some non-negligible attacks are known for a cipher,
   it MUST NOT be used.  So re-keying can not be used as a patch for
   vulnerable ciphers.  Base cipher properties must be well analyzed,
   because security of re-keying mechanisms is based on security of a
   block cipher as a pseudorandom function.
