Internet-Draft          Loc/ID Split Implications          December 2008


1.  Introduction

   Locator/ID Separation (hereafter Loc/ID split) has been proposed as
   an architectural enhancement to the Internet architecture to
   facilitate, among other things, scaling of the global routing system
   [RFC1498][Chiappa99][Fuller06][RFC4984].  The basic idea is that the
   current number space (the IPv4/IPv6 address space) is overloaded with
   both location and identity semantics.  One consequence of this
   overloading is that it is difficult to assign routing locators
   (RLOCs) in a way that is congruent with the underlying network
   topology; this makes aggregation difficult (if not impossible).  This
   property is sometimes referred to as Rekhter's Law, and is frequently
   formulated as follows:

     "Addressing can follow topology or topology can follow
      addressing. Choose one."

   Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs), on the other hand, are typically
   assigned without regard to the underlying network topology (e.g.,
   Host Identity Tags [RFC4423]).  This makes it difficult for a single
   numbering space to efficiently serve the routing locator and endpoint
   identifier roles.

   Locator/Identity Separation can be used to decouple the allocation of
   of EIDs from RLOCs, enabling the RLOC space to be aggressively
   aggregated (i.e., by aligning RLOC allocations with the underlying
   network topology).  The positive effect of such aggregation would be
   to control the growth of global routing state (note that aggregation
   in the EID space may also an issue, but as of this writing hasn't
   been extensively explored).

   Recent work on Locator/ID Separation has focused almost exclusively
   on control plane protocols for finding Identifier-to-Locator mappings
   (for example, [I-D.fuller-lisp-alt][I-D.jen-apt]
   [I-D.lear-lisp-nerd]).  However, experience gained with a trial
   deployment of a system designed to implement Locator/ID Separation
   has revealed two general classes of problems which must be resolved
   after the mapping is found: The Locator Path Liveness Problem and the
   State Synchronization Problem.  These problems have implications for
   the data plane as well as the control plane.

   This document focuses on the Locator Path Liveness and State
   Synchronization problems, and is organized as follows: Section 2
   provides an overview of the problem space.  Section 3 discusses the
   Locator Path Liveness problem, and Section 4 discusses the State
   Synchronization problem.  Finally, Section 5 provides a few
   conclusions.

2.  The Problem Space

   Decoupling Location and Identity has profound implications both the
   control and data planes.  In particular, decoupling location from
   identity leads to the two difficult problems: First, give a set of
   source locators and a set of destination locators, it must be
   possible to determine whether a particular destination locator is
   reachable.  We refer to this general problem as the Locator Path
   Liveness Problem.  The Locator Path Liveness Problem is exhibited in
   host-based architectures such as SHIM6 [I-D.ietf-shim6-proto]) and
   network-based architectures such as eFIT [EFIT] and [LISP]).  The
   "Hybrid Rewriting" class of architectures (e.g., ,GSE [ODell97])
   exhibit a slight variant on the problem.  Locator Liveness is
   discussed in Section 3.

   The second problem is that mapping state may need to be shared among
   network elements (this is as opposed to the determining if the
   locator itself is up or down).  This is referred to as the Site-Based
   State Synchronization Problem, and is specific to network-based
   architectures.  The Site-Based State Synchronization problem is
   discussed in Section 4.


3.  The Locator Path Liveness Problem

   The Locator Path Liveness Problem can be stated as follows:

     Given a set of source locators and a set of destination
      locators, can bidirectional connectivity be determined between
      the <source locator,destination locator> address pairs?

   A simple example illustrates the problem: Consider the scenario
   depicted in Figure 1.  Here a site S0 is multihomed to provider A and
   provider B. Further, suppose that S0 has a Provider Assigned (PA)
   locator from provider A (call it La) and a PA locator, Lb, from
   provider B. Suppose that provider A peers with provider B. In this
   case, S0 might "advertise" that its EID-prefixes can be reached
   through nodes La and Lb (either via DNS, explicit protocol message
   such as a Map-Reply message [LISP], or other method) to its
   correspondent sites.

   Now, suppose that a correspondent site S1 is connected to provider C,
   and that S0 has told S1 that it can reach S0 on either La or Lb.
   Suppose further that S1 chooses La to reach S0, so that packets
   sourced from S1 destined for S0 traverse the path S1->C->B->A->S0.
   Note that if connectivity between provider B and provider A is
   disrupted (for either business or technical reasons), La will not be
   reachable from S1.  In this case, S1 must detect that La is no longer

   reachable and use Lb to restore connectivity (in the event that S1
   wants to restore connectivity; in today's Internet, would S0 would
   continue to be unreachable).

                      Figure 1: Reachibility Failure

   The Locator Path Liveness problem arises in subtly different ways,
   depending on the contents of the mapping database (i.e., EIDs, RLOCs,
   or some combination of these), who queries the database (host or
   network element), and how knowledge is distributed between hosts and
   routing.  Note that in general, Locator Path Liveness must be tested
   in the data plane (although an implementation might take advantage of
   various "hints; see Section 3.2).

   Host-Based Architectures:  In host-based architectures (e.g., SHIM6
      [I-D.ietf-shim6-proto]), the problem arises because queries to the
      database (DNS in this case) return "addresses" which can be
      thought of as a concatenation of the RLOC and EID.  Since a host
      is anticipated to have multiple such "addresses" (at least in the
      SHIM6 case), it must choose a working <source,destination> pair
      from among its potential source addresses and its correspondent
      destination addresses.  REAP [I-D.ietf-shim6-failure-detection] is
      a probe-based reachability protocol which is designed to address
      this problem.

   Hybrid Network-Based Rewriting Archtectures:  In hybrid network-based
      rewriting architectures (e.g., GSE [ODell97]), the problem arises
      because there is a knowledge asymmetry between the host and
      routing.  Specifically, while the host is responsible for
      selecting the destination Routing Goop (RG) (i.e., the ingress
      point to the destination domain, essentially the destination
      RLOC), it is routing that selects the source RG.  So while the IGP

Internet-Draft          Loc/ID Split Implications          December 2008


      routing in a domain can be intelligent about egress points from
      the domain, it is the destination address, chosen by the host,
      that selects the ingress point in the destination domain.  However
      it is routing, and not the host, that knows if the destination is
      reachable or not.  Section 4.2 of [Zhang06] discusses this issue
      from a slightly different point of view.

      This asymmetry gives rise to the following problem: Hosts will
      likely want information, at some granularity, about which
      <source,destination> pairs currently work.  However, the host has
      no information about how many RGs are available to the site or if
      they are currently reachable.  So the host can not test the set of
      <source,destination> pairs for active paths.  On the other hand,
      the routing can't either, unless it snoops on TCP connections
      (which doesn't deal with asymmetric paths, UDP flows, or
      unidirectional flows).

      It is worth noting that unlike most "modern" descriptions of how
      GSE uses the DNS (e.g., [Zhang06]), the original GSE design
      [ODell97][ODell08] envisioned that the DNS would have a new
      resource record type, the RG record, to carry a site's RGs.  Hosts
      would only have AAAA records.  The idea was that for a given
      destination domain, a host in the source domain would compute the
      Cartesian Product {RGs}x{A4s}.  Thus alternate path sensing would
      become a a matter of local policy, and not hard-wired by the
      destination domain (or whoever happens to be authoritative for the
      destination domain's names).  Notice however that even the
      introduction of the RG resource record, the knowledge asymmetry
      remains.

   Network-Based Map-and-Encap Archtectures:  In the case of map-and-
      encap network-based architectures, the problem arises because the
      mapping element (e.g., Ingress Tunnel Router, or ITR) must choose
      among the RLOCs it has learned for a given EID-prefix.  Here since
      the ITR holds the mappings that knows the set of possible remote
      "addresses" and not the host, the host may choose among multiple
      EIDs, but it cannot choose among the possible RLOCs (the host has
      no access to that information).  Hence if the ITR chooses a RLOC
      that may not be reachable, traffic to the destination site will be
      blackholed, and the host is left with no recourse.

3.1.  Complexity

   The complexity of testing Locator Path Liveness in the data plane is
   roughly O(M*N), where there are M source addresses and N destination
   addresses.  The following sections more closely analyze the
   complexity of host-based and network-based liveness probing.

Internet-Draft          Loc/ID Split Implications          December 2008


3.1.1.  Complexity of Host-Based Probing

   Host-based implementations must keep per-correspondent host liveness
   state.  The complexity of probing in a host-based implementation can
   be though of as follows:

       Let C   = the number of correspondent hosts
       Let D_i = the number of destination locators for host C_i
       Let S   = the number of source locators

       Then the complexity of host-based probing, P_host, is

       O(P_host), where P_host = S*sum(D_i), i = 0...C-1

3.1.2.  Complexity of Network-Based Probing

   Network-based implementations must keep per-destination egress point
   liveness.  The complexity of probing in a network-based
   implementation can be thought of as follows:

       Let N   = the number of EID-prefixes in a network element's
                 cache
       Let L_i = the number of locators for EID-prefix N_i
       Let M   = the number of source locators

       Then the complexity of network-based probing, P_network,  can
       be described as

       O(P_network), where P_network = M*sum(L_i), i = 0...N-1

   Note that a network-based probing scheme might have an advantage here
   since a single EID-prefix may cover many correspondent hosts.  That
   is, sum(L_i), i = 0...N-1 << sum(D_i), i = 0...C-1

3.2.  Possible Optimizations

   The previous sections analyzed the complexity of explicitly probing
   to assess Locator Path Liveness.  In order to mitigate this
   complexity, an implementation might attempt to rely on the various
   "hints".  The following sections, while not intended to be an
   exhaustive survey, outline some of the Locator Path Liveness hints an
   implementation may utilize.

   Data Traffic:  When data is received, an implementation might assume
      that the source of that traffic is reachable, and as such probing
      might not be needed.  Of course, this is at best a unidirectional
      "hint" that an implementation might use to determine locator
      liveness.  Of course, only a complete round trip, wherein the

      distant site says something back to the local site which the local
      site originally sent to the distant site, can one then guarantee
      that the distant site can hear the local site.

      A variation on this theme is to "piggyback" liveness testing on
      user data traffic, by adding a Solicit-User-Probe-Reply bit, which
      tells the far end to send back the next user data packet(s) with
      the outbound nonce, and a User-Probe-Reply bit set.  Of course,
      this optimization depends on the existence of some traffic (even
      if not for the same connection) going between pairs of border
      elements.  That is, if a particular pair has only traffic in one
      direction, this method fails.  In addition, it requires extra
      processing on user data packets, extra overhead in the packets (a
      field, some bits), and extra protocol complication.  Of course,
      such piggybacking only provides the view from remote domain, not
      whether the locator is actually reachable from the recipient of
      the "User-Probe-Bit".

   Protocol Control Messages:  If a protocol control message is received
      (for example, a Map-Reply), an implementation may conclude that
      the source of that is reachable.  Again, in the best case, this is
      only a hint, since receipt of the control message proves only
      unidirectional connectivity.

   Piggybacking Liveness Indications:  A network-based architecture
      might piggyback indication of intra-domain locator liveness on
      other data and/or protocol messages.  An example of this approach
      is LISP's use of loc-reach bits to indicate which Egress Tunnel
      Routers in a domain are up (from an inside the domain
      perspective).

   Existence of the Locator in underlying routing:  A device which is
      responsible for locator liveness can utilize underlying routing to
      determine if the locator is at all available.  If the network
      prefix (or a covering aggregate) for the destination locator is
      NOT found in underlying routing, then the path will not be
      available.  This is at best a negative detection, it can show when
      a path is not available, but liveness of a particular locator.  A
      given locator may still be unavailable and this not be shown in
      routing, due to data plane filtering, or the reachability being
      hidden by aggregation of the particular locator prefix.

   Positive Feedback From Other Protocols:  An implementation may be
      able to deduce some forms of reachability from other protocols.
      For example, TCP might indicate to the IP layer that it believes
      that there is bidirectional connectivity between a given address
      pair.  This might be signalled to the source when it receives a
      SYN-ACK from the destination RLOC.  As pointed out in



Meyer & Lewis             Expires June 11, 2009                 [Page 8]


Internet-Draft          Loc/ID Split Implications          December 2008


      [I-D.ietf-shim6-failure-detection], this is similar to how IPv6
      Neighbor Unreachability Detection can be avoided when upper layers
      provide information about bidirectional connectivity [RFC4861].

      If an implementation has access to higher layer protocols (e.g.,
      BGP), it might get a hint as to the reachability of a given
      locator.  In the case of BGP, an implementation might conclude
      that the locator is reachable if there is a covering prefix in the
      BGP Routing Information Base (RIB).  Again, this is a hint,
      because the correspondent host may be down.

   Timeouts:  An implementation may be able to deduce some forms of
      Unreachability from timeouts of other protocols.For example, TCP
      to indicate that there is a lack of connectivity because it is not
      getting ACKs (of course, the signal is overloaded: there may be
      congestion).

   ICMP Messages:  While ICMP is an available signalling protocol, due
      to its lack of security (in particular, ease of spoofing
      [I-D.ietf-tcpm-icmp-attacks]) and the fact that common policy is
      to block or rate limited ICMP, its utility has been somewhat
      marginalized (see Section 3.3).  As such, ICMP may perhaps be used
      as a hint but beyond that, an implementation can not rely on ICMP
      as a signalling mechanism.

   QQQ: Again, when do I know a locator is up?  If I probe and the
   response is positive, does that mean its up (i.e., it can go down in
   the interim, so what is the time granularity, and what effect does
   that have on efficiency?

   In general, depending on end-to-end liveness indications is
   applicable to only to host-based solutions (e.g.,
   [I-D.ietf-shim6-proto]).  A network-based implementation may rely on
   higher layer protocols to indicate liveness (for example, an
   implementation may be able deduce a limited form of reachability from
   the existence of a BGP route covering the destination RLOC), but
   these too can only be used as hints.  In the general case, however,
   an architecture that implements Loc/ID split (either host-based or
   network-based) will need to test Locator Path Liveness in the data
   plane

3.3.  Security Issues

   Mere inspection of insecure traffic may lead to false negative
   detection due to the insertion of malicious traffic.  For instance,
   packets that masquerade as coming from a site may tamper with the
   loc-reach-bits, making the site locators look unreachable where in
   fact they are reachable [LISP].



Meyer & Lewis             Expires June 11, 2009                 [Page 9]


Internet-Draft          Loc/ID Split Implications          December 2008


   ICMP Messages:  ICMP messages are are easily spoofable
      [I-D.ietf-tcpm-icmp-attacks], so may be exploited to provide false
      negatives.  However, they are also rate limited and often outright
      disabled, leaving a site sending data to a remote RLOC under the
      impression that the RLOC is reachable (as a false positive side
      effect).

   Existance of the Locator in the BGP RIB:  This vulnerability is
      shared by non-Loc/ID split architectures (need reference to
      Pakistani-youtube example as a way compromised routing can break
      path liveness).

   Aside from the ability to mislead a poorly implemented probing
   mechanism with data spoofing, probing creates a fundamentally
   unscalable relationship between site pairs (see Section 3.1).  This
   leads to both implicit (unscalable) and explicit (vulnerable to probe
   floods) Denial of Service vulnerability in the systems receiving
   probe requests.

   Finally, note that in the case of network-based Loc/ID split
   architectures, the RLOCs of border elements represent reachability on
   behalf of entire site.  As a result, failure to detect path liveness
   can disrupt connectivity to the entire site.  On the other hand, in
   host-based LIS, only individual hosts are compromised.


4.  Site-Based State Synchronization

   The Site-Based State Synchronization problem is specific to network-
   based Loc/ID split architectures.  There are two kinds of state
   synchronization that might need to be performed: mapping state
   synchronization and locator liveness synchronization.

   The Site-Based State Synchronization problem can most easily be
   demonstrated by a simple example.  Consider the following case: A
   site has two ITRs; one ITR is on the active path and the other ITR is
   on a backup path.  In this case, all traffic egressing from the site
   traverses the ITR on the active path, and as a result that ITR is
   caching the mapping state for all of the active flows.  The ITR on
   the backup path has no mapping state.  Now, when the ITR on the
   active path fails, traffic is naturally shifted to the ITR on the
   backup path.  If the now active ITR hasn't synchronized its state
   with the previously active ITR(s), then the newly active ITR has to
   reconstruct the mapping state for the flows that were traversing the
   failed ITR.  In particular, the failure, which is local to the site,
   requires the now active ITR to go off-site to reconstruct the state.

4.1.  Complexity

   TBD


5.  Conclusions

   Architectures that implement Locator/ID Separation (either host or
   network based) need to carefully evaluate the complexity inherent in
   determining Locator Path Liveness.  The complexity of mapping state
   synchronization is an additional concern for network-based
   architectures.
