        YANG Data Model for Network Access Control Lists (ACLs)

Abstract

   This document defines a data model for Access Control Lists (ACLs).
   An ACL is a user-ordered set of rules used to configure the
   forwarding behavior in a device.  Each rule is used to find a match
   on a packet and define actions that will be performed on the packet.

1.  Introduction

   An Access Control List (ACL) is one of the basic elements used to
   configure device-forwarding behavior.  It is used in many networking
   technologies such as Policy-Based Routing (PBR), firewalls, etc.

   An ACL is a user-ordered set of rules that is used to filter traffic
   on a networking device.  Each rule is represented by an Access
   Control Entry (ACE).

   Each ACE has a group of match criteria and a group of actions.

   The match criteria allow for the definition of packet headers and
   metadata, the contents of which must match the definitions.

   o  Packet header matches apply to fields visible in the packet such
      as address, Class of Service (CoS), or port number.

RFC 8519                YANG Data Model for ACLs              March 2019


   o  In case a vendor supports it, metadata matches apply to fields
      associated with the packet, that are not in the packet header,
      such as the input interface or length of the packet as received
      over the wire.

   The actions specify what to do with the packet when the matching
   criteria are met.  These actions are any operations that would apply
   to the packet, such as counting, policing, or simply forwarding.  The
   list of potential actions is unbounded depending on the capabilities
   of the networking devices.

   Access Control List is also widely known as ACL (pronounced as
   [ak-uh l]) or Access List.  In this document, Access Control List,
   ACL, and Access List are used interchangeably.

   The matching of filters and actions in an ACE/ACL is triggered only
   after the application/attachment of the ACL to an interface, a
   Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) interface, a vty/tty session, a
   QoS policy, or routing protocols, amongst various other configuration
   attachment points.  Once attached, it is used for filtering traffic
   using the match criteria in the ACEs and taking appropriate action(s)
   that has been configured against that ACE.  In order to apply an ACL
   to any attachment point other than an interface, vendors would have
   to augment the ACL YANG model.

2.  Problem Statement

   This document defines a YANG 1.1 data model [RFC7950] for the
   configuration of ACLs.  The model defines matching rules for commonly
   used protocols such as Ethernet, IPv4, IPv6, TCP, UDP, and ICMP.  If
   more protocols need to be supported in the future, this base model
   can be augmented.  An example of such an augmentation can be seen in
   Appendix A.

   ACL implementations in every device may vary greatly in terms of the
   filter constructs and actions that they support.  Therefore, this
   document proposes a model that can be augmented by standard
   extensions and vendor proprietary models.

3.  Understanding ACL's Filters and Actions

   Although different vendors have different ACL data models, there is a
   common understanding of what an ACL is.  A network system usually has
   a list of ACLs, and each ACL contains an ordered list of rules, also
   known as ACEs.  Each ACE has a group of match criteria and a group of
   actions.  The match criteria allows for definition of the contents of
   the packet headers or metadata, if supported by the vendor.  Packet
   header matching applies to fields visible in the packet such as
   address, CoS, or port number.  Metadata matching applies to fields
   associated with the packet, that are not in the packet header, such
   as the input interface, packet length, or source or destination
   prefix length.  The actions can be any sort of operation from logging
   to rate-limiting or dropping to simply forwarding.  Actions on the
   first matching ACE are applied with no processing of subsequent ACEs.





Jethanandani, et al.         Standards Track                    [Page 4]


RFC 8519                YANG Data Model for ACLs              March 2019


   The model also includes a container to hold overall operational state
   for each ACL and for each ACE.  One ACL can be applied to multiple
   targets within the device, such as the interface of a networking
   device, applications or features running in the device, etc.  When
   applied to interfaces of a networked device, distinct ACLs are
   defined for the ingress (input) or egress (output) interface.

   This document tries to address the commonalities between all vendors
   and creates a common model, which can be augmented with proprietary
   models.  The base model is simple in design, and we hope to achieve
   enough flexibility for each vendor to extend the base model.

   The use of feature statements in the model allows vendors to
   advertise match rules they are capable and willing to support.  There
   are two sets of feature statements a device needs to advertise.  The
   first set of feature statements specifies the capability of the
   device.  These include features such as "Device can support matching
   on Ethernet headers" or "Device can support matching on IPv4
   headers".  The second set of feature statements specifies the
   combinations of headers the device is willing to support.  These
   include features such as "Plain IPv6 ACL supported" or "Ethernet,
   IPv4 and IPv6 ACL combinations supported".

3.1.  ACL Modules

   There are two YANG modules in the model.  The first module, "ietf-
   access-control-list", defines generic ACL aspects that are common to
   all ACLs regardless of their type or vendor.  In effect, the module
   can be viewed as providing a generic ACL "superclass".  It imports
   the second module, "ietf-packet-fields".  The match container in
   "ietf-access-control-list" uses groupings in "ietf-packet-fields" to
   specify match fields such as port numbers or protocols.  The
   combination of 'if-feature' checks and 'must' statements allows for
   the selection of relevant match fields that a user can define rules
   for.

   If there is a need to define a new "matches" choice, such as IP Flow
   Information Export (IPFIX) [RFC7011], the container "matches" can be
   augmented.

4.  ACL YANG Models

4.1.  IETF Access Control List Module

   The "ietf-access-control-list" module defines the "acls" container
   that has a list of each "acl".  Each "acl" has information
   identifying the access list by a name ("name") and a list ("aces") of
   rules associated with the "name".  Each of the entries in the list
   ("aces"), indexed by the string "name", has containers defining
   "matches" and "actions".







Jethanandani, et al.         Standards Track                    [Page 9]


RFC 8519                YANG Data Model for ACLs              March 2019


   The model defines several ACL types and actions in the form of
   identities and features.  Features are used by implementors to select
   the ACL types the system can support, and identities are used to
   validate the types that have been selected.  These types are
   implicitly inherited by the "ace", thus safeguarding against
   misconfiguration of "ace" types in an "acl".

   The "matches" define criteria used to identify patterns in "ietf-
   packet-fields".  The choice statements within the match container
   allow for the selection of one header within each of "l2", "l3", or
   "l4" headers.  The "actions" define the behavior to undertake once a
   "match" has been identified.  In addition to permit and deny actions,
   a logging option allows for a match to be logged that can later be
   used to determine which rule was matched upon.  The model also
   defines the ability for ACLs to be attached to a particular
   interface.

   Statistics in the ACL can be collected for an "ace" or for an
   "interface".  The feature statements defined for statistics can be
   used to determine whether statistics are being collected per "ace" or
   per "interface".

   This module imports definitions from "Common YANG Data Types"
   [RFC6991] and "A YANG Data Model for Interface Management" [RFC8343].

4.2.  IETF Packet Fields Module

   The packet fields module defines the necessary groups for matching on
   fields in the packet including Ethernet, IPv4, IPv6, and transport-
   layer fields.  The "type" node determines which of these fields get
   included for any given ACL with the exception of TCP, UDP, and ICMP
   header fields.  Those fields can be used in conjunction with any of
   the above Layer 2 or Layer 3 fields.

   Since the number of match criteria are very large, the base
   specification does not include these directly but references them by
   the 'uses' statement to keep the base module simple.  In case more
   match conditions are needed, those can be added by augmenting choices
   within container "matches" in the ietf-access-control-list.yang data
   model.

   This module imports definitions from "Common YANG Data Types"
   [RFC6991] and references "Internet Protocol" [RFC791], "Internet
   Control Message Protocol" [RFC792], "Transmission Control Protocol"
   [RFC793], "Definition of the Differentiated Services Field (DS Field)

4.4.  Port Range Usage and Other Examples

   When a lower-port and an upper-port are both present, it represents a
   range between the lower-port and upper-port with both the lower-port
   and upper-port included.  When only a port is present, it represents
   a port, with the operator specifying the range.

   The following XML example represents a configuration where TCP
   traffic from source ports 16384, 16385, 16386, and 16387 is dropped.

5.  Security Considerations

   The YANG modules specified in this document define a schema for data
   that is designed to be accessed via network management protocol such
   as NETCONF [RFC6241] or RESTCONF [RFC8040].  The lowest NETCONF layer
   is the secure transport layer, and the mandatory-to-implement secure
   transport is Secure Shell (SSH) [RFC6242].  The lowest RESTCONF layer
   is HTTPS, and the mandatory-to-implement secure transport is TLS
   [RFC8446].

   The NETCONF Access Control Model (NACM) [RFC8341] provides the means
   to restrict access for particular NETCONF or RESTCONF users to a
   preconfigured subset of all available NETCONF or RESTCONF protocol
   operations and content.






Jethanandani, et al.         Standards Track                   [Page 42]


RFC 8519                YANG Data Model for ACLs              March 2019


   There are a number of data nodes defined in these YANG modules that
   are writable/creatable/deletable (i.e., config true, which is the
   default).  These data nodes may be considered sensitive or vulnerable
   in some network environments.  Write operations (e.g., edit-config)
   to these data nodes without proper protection can have a negative
   effect on network operations.  These are the subtrees and data nodes
   and their sensitivity/vulnerability:

      /acls/acl/aces: This list specifies all the configured access
      control entries on the device.  Unauthorized write access to this
      list can allow intruders to modify the entries so as to permit
      traffic that should not be permitted, or deny traffic that should
      be permitted.  The former may result in a DoS attack, or
      compromise the device.  The latter may result in a DoS attack.
      The impact of an unauthorized read access of the list will allow
      the attacker to determine which rules are in effect, to better
      craft an attack.

      /acls/acl/aces/ace/actions/logging: This node specifies ability to
      log packets that match this ace entry.  Unauthorized write access
      to this node can allow intruders to enable logging on one or many
      ace entries, overwhelming the server in the process.  Unauthorized
      read access of this node can allow intruders to access logging
      information, which could be used to craft an attack the server.

6.  IANA Considerations

   This document registers three URIs and three YANG modules.

6.1.  URI Registration

   This document registers three URIs in the "IETF XML Registry"
   [RFC3688] as follows:

   URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-access-control-list
   URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-packet-fields
   URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-ethertypes

   Registrant Contact: The IESG.

   XML: N/A; the requested URI is an XML namespace.

Appendix A.  Extending ACL Model Examples

A.1.  Example of a Company's Proprietary Module

   The "example-newco-acl" module is an example of a company's
   proprietary model that augments the "ietf-acl" module.  It shows how
   to use 'augment' with an XML Path Language (XPath) expression to add
   additional match criteria, actions, and default actions for when no
   ACE matches are found.  All these are company proprietary extensions
   or system feature extensions.  "example-newco-acl" is just an
   example, and it is expected that vendors will create their own
   proprietary models.

   The following figure is the tree diagram of example-newco-acl.  In
   this example, /ietf-acl:acls/ietf-acl:acl/ietf-acl:aces/ietf-acl:ace/
   ietf-acl:matches are augmented with two new choices: protocol-
   payload-choice and metadata.  The protocol-payload-choice uses a
   grouping with an enumeration of all supported protocol values.
   Metadata matches apply to fields associated with the packet, that are
   not in the packet header, such as overall packet length.  In another
   example, /ietf-acl:acls/ietf-acl:acl/ietf-acl:aces/ietf-acl:ace/
   ietf-acl:actions are augmented with a new choice of actions.

A.2.  Linux nftables

   As the Linux platform is becoming more popular than the networking
   platform, the Linux data model is changing.  Previously, ACLs in
   Linux were highly protocol specific, and different utilities were
   used (iptables, ip6tables, arptables, and ebtables), so each one had
   a separate data model.  Recently, this has changed, and a single
   utility, nftables, has been developed.  With a single application, it
   has a single data model for firewall filters, and it follows very
   similarly the ietf-access-control list module proposed in this
   document.  The nftables support input and output ACEs, and each ACE
   can be defined with match and action.



Jethanandani, et al.         Standards Track                   [Page 50]


RFC 8519                YANG Data Model for ACLs              March 2019


   The example in Section 4.3 can be configured using nftable tool as
   below.

         nft add table ip filter
         nft add chain filter input
         nft add rule ip filter input ip protocol tcp ip saddr \
             192.0.2.1/24 drop

   The configuration entries added in nftable would be:

         table ip filter {
           chain input {
             ip protocol tcp ip saddr 192.0.2.1/24 drop
           }
         }


   We can see that there are many similarities between Linux nftables
   and IETF ACL YANG data models and their extension models.  It should
   be fairly easy to do translation between the ACL YANG model described
   in this document and Linux nftables.

A.3.  Ethertypes

   The ACL module is dependent on the definition of Ethertypes.  IEEE
   owns the allocation of those Ethertypes.  This model is being
   included here to enable the definition of those types till such time
   that IEEE takes up the task of publication of the model that defines
   those Ethertypes.  At that time, this model can be deprecated.

Acknowledgements

   Alex Clemm, Andy Bierman, and Lisa Huang started by sketching an
   initial draft version in several past IETF meetings.  That document
   included an ACL YANG model structure and a rich set of match filters,
   and it acknowledged contributions by Louis Fourie, Dana Blair, Tula
   Kraiser, Patrick Gili, George Serpa, Martin Bjorklund, Kent Watsen,
   and Phil Shafer.  Many people have reviewed the various earlier draft
   versions that made the document that went into IETF charter.

   Dean Bogdanovic, Kiran Agrahara Sreenivasa, Lisa Huang, and Dana
   Blair each evaluated the YANG model in earlier draft versions
   separately, and then they worked together to create an ACL draft
   version that was supported by different vendors.  That document
   removed vendor-specific features and gave examples that allowed
   vendors to extend their own proprietary ACLs.  That earlier draft
   version was superseded with this document and received participation
   from many vendors.

   The authors would like to thank Jason Sterne, Lada Lhotka, Juergen
   Schoenwalder, David Bannister, Jeff Haas, Kristian Larsson, and Einar
   Nilsen-Nygaard for their reviews of and suggestions for the document.
