         EtherType Protocol Identification of In-situ OAM Data
                      draft-weis-ippm-ioam-eth-01

Abstract

   In-situ Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (IOAM) records
   operational and telemetry information in the packet while the packet
   traverses a path between two points in the network.  This document
   defines an EtherType that identifies IOAM data fields as being the
   next protocol in a packet, and a header that encapsulates the IOAM
   data fields.

1.  Introduction

   In-situ Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (IOAM) records
   operational and telemetry information in the packet while the packet
   traverses a particular network domain.  The term "in-situ" refers to
   the fact that the IOAM data fields are added to the data packets
   rather than being sent within packets specifically dedicated to OAM.
   This document defines how IOAM data fields are carried as part of
   encapsulations where the IOAM data follows a header that uses an

   EtherType to denote the next protocol in the packet.  Examples of
   these protocols are GRE [RFC2890] and Geneve [I-D.ietf-nvo3-geneve]).
   This document outlines how IOAM data fields are encoded in these
   protocols.

3.  IOAM EtherType

   When the IOAM data fields are included within an encapsulation that
   identifies the next protocol using an EtherType (e.g., GRE or Geneve)
   the presence of IOAM data fields are identified with TBD_IOAM.  When
   this EtherType is used, an additional IOAM header is also included.
   This header indicates the type of IOAM data that follows, and the
   next protocol that follows the IOAM data.

   The IOAM encapsulation is defined as follows.

   IOAM Type:  8-bit field defining the IOAM Option type, as defined in
      Section 7.2 of [I-D.ietf-ippm-ioam-data].

   IOAM HDR Len:  8 bit Length field contains the length of the IOAM
      header in 4-octet units.

   Next Protocol:  16 bits Next Protocol Type field contains the
      protocol type of the packet following IOAM protocol header.
      Protocol Type is defined to be an EtherType value from [ETYPES].
      An implementation receiving a packet containing a Protocol Type
      which is not listed in one of those registries SHOULD discard the
      packet.

   IOAM Option and Data Space:  IOAM option header and data is present
      as specified by the IOAM-Type field, and is defined in Section 4
      of [I-D.ietf-ippm-ioam-data].

   Multiple IOAM options MAY be included within the IOAM Option and Data
   Space.  For example, if two IOAM options are included, the Next
   Protocol field of the first IOAM option will contain the value of
   TBD_IOAM, while the Next Protocol field of the second IOAM option
   will contain the EtherType indicating the type of the data packet.

4.  Usage Examples of the IOAM EtherType

   The IOAM EtherType can be used with many encapsulations.  The
   following sections show how it can be used with GRE and Geneve.

4.1.  Example: GRE Encapsulation of IOAM Data Fields

   When IOAM data fields are carried in GRE, the IOAM encapsulation
   defined above follows the GRE header, as shown in Figure 1.

   The GENEVE header and fields are defined in [I-D.ietf-nvo3-geneve].
   The Geneve Protocol Type value is TBD_IOAM.

5.  Security Considerations

   This document describes the encapsulation of IOAM data fields in GRE.
   Security considerations of the specific IOAM data fields for each
   case (i.e., Trace, Proof of Transit, and E2E) are described in
   defined in [I-D.ietf-ippm-ioam-data].

   As this document describes new protocol fields within the existing
   GRE encapsulation, these are similar to the security considerations
   of [RFC2890].

   IOAM data transported in an OAM E2E header SHOULD be integrity
   protected (e.g., with IPsec ESP [RFC4303]) to detect changes made by
   a device between the sending and receiving OAM endpoints.

6.  IANA Considerations

   A new EtherType value is requested to be added to the [ETYPES] IANA
   registry.  The description should be "In-situ OAM (IOAM)".
