TinyOS is Micro-OS code and realized with the NesC programming Figure 1: Interface between PANA and EAP
language. NesC's syntax is similar to C programming language,
and it's a component-based programming language. It is an
extension of C language. A NesC application is consisted of
many components connected together. These components include
configuration components and module components. Every relatively
independent hardware or software modules can be realized with one
or more components to.
TinyOS is built on such idea which makesthe application of the
system reductive.
(1) Interface: Interface is two-way, defined many commands and Thus, two interfaces are needed between PANA state machines and EAP
events. Commands are realized by the providers and the active state machines, namely:
operation for an event is implements by the users.
(2) Configuration: The configuration is a component which can o Interface between the PaC state machine and the EAP peer state

in this place. Inside the module, it defines the interface it
provides and used. And realizes the commands in the interface
it provides and the events in the interface it uses.
3.3 Introduction of TinyECC In general, the PaC and PAA state machines present EAP messages to
the EAP peer and authenticator state machines through the interface,
respectively. The EAP peer and authenticator state machines process
these messages and send EAP messages through the PaC and PAA state
machines that are responsible for actually transmitting this message,
respectively.
TinyECC is a code packet provided by a North Carolina State For example, [RFC4137] specifies four interfaces to lower layers: (i)

between the EAP backend authenticator state machine and a lower
layer. In this document, the PANA protocol is the lower layer of EAP
and only the first three interfaces are of interest to PANA. The
second and third interfaces are the same. In this regard, the EAP
standalone authenticator or the EAP full authenticator and its state
machine in [RFC4137] are referred to as the EAP authenticator and the
EAP authenticator state machine, respectively, in this document. If
an EAP peer and an EAP authenticator follow the state machines
defined in [RFC4137], the interfaces between PANA and EAP could be
based on that document. Detailed definition of interfaces between
PANA and EAP are described in the subsequent sections.

the large number operations.
3.3.2 Working process All permissible transitions from a given state to other states and
associated actions performed when the transitions occur are
represented by using triplets of (exit condition, exit action, exit
state). All conditions are expressions that evaluate to TRUE or
FALSE; if a condition evaluates to TRUE, then the condition is met.
A state "ANY" is a wildcard state that matches any state in each
state machine except those explicitly enumerated as exception states.
The exit conditions of a wildcard state are evaluated after all other
exit conditions specific to the current state are met.
(1) Initialize an elliptic curve: The TinyECC provides an On exit from a state, the exit actions defined for the state and the
interface CurveParam to initialize an elliptic curve. This exit condition are executed exactly once, in the order that they

of an exit action completes before the next sequential exit action
starts to execute. No exit action executes outside of a state block.
The exit actions in only one state block execute at a time even if
the conditions for execution of state blocks in different state
machines are satisfied. All exit actions in an executing state block
complete execution before the transition to and execution of any
other state blocks. The execution of any state block appears to be
atomic with respect to the execution of any other state block, and
the transition condition to that state from the previous state is
TRUE when execution commences. The order of execution of state
blocks in different state machines is undefined except as constrained
by their transition conditions. A variable that is set to a
particular value in a state block retains this value until a
subsequent state block executes an exit action that modifies the
value.
(2) Base operations on elliptical curve: The ECC interface defined On completion of the transition from the previous state to the

For example, we can call ECC.win_mul(&myTb,RInv,&pointArray)
to realize a scalar multiplication.
4. Protocol Description Any event variable is set to TRUE when the corresponding event occurs
and set to FALSE immediately after completion of the action
associated with the current state and the event.
4.1 Flow and Structure The interpretation of the special symbols and operators used is
defined in [RFC4137].
This section describes the nodes authentication based on TinyECC. 6. Common Rules
Based on TinyECC, we designed a simple node authentication protocol
on WSNs to realize simple node authentication. The protocol can be
divided into the following steps:
Alice Bob There are following procedures, variables, message initializing

4.2 Implementation Throughout this document, the character string "PANA_MESSAGE_NAME"
matches any one of the abbreviated PANA message names, i.e., "PCI",
"PAR", "PAN", "PTR", "PTA", "PNR", "PNA".

The main component is entrance of this program. It provides
the StdControl interface which realizes some hardware initialization
work. BaseNode is the core of the program. It calls the Timer
component to trigger event in times; calls the Leds component to
trigger indicators; uses the GenericComm component to send messages
and receive messages; calls the ECC and NN components to realize the
data encryption in the process of the protocol.

TRUE if authorization is successful. Otherwise, it returns FALSE.
It is assumed that Authorize() procedure of PaC state machine

boolean key_available()
A procedure to check whether the PANA session has a PANA_AUTH_KEY.
If the state machine already has a PANA_AUTH_KEY, it returns TRUE.
If the state machine does not have a PANA_AUTH_KEY, it tries to
retrieve a Master Session Key (MSK) from the EAP entity. If an
MSK is retrieved, it computes a PANA_AUTH_KEY from the MSK and
returns TRUE. Otherwise, it returns FALSE.
6.2. Common Variables
PAR.RESULT_CODE
This variable contains the Result-Code AVP value in the PANA-Auth-
Request message in process. When this variable carries
PANA_SUCCESS, it is assumed that the PAR message always contains
an EAP-Payload AVP that carries an EAP-Success message.
NONCE_SENT
This variable is set to TRUE to indicate that a Nonce-AVP has
already been sent. Otherwise, it is set to FALSE.
RTX_COUNTER
This variable contains the current number of retransmissions of
the outstanding PANA message.
Rx:PANA_MESSAGE_NAME[flag]
This event variable is set to TRUE when the specified PANA message
is received from its peering PANA entity. The "flag" contains a
flag (e.g., Rx:PAR[C]), except for 'R' (Request) flag.

expired.
LIFETIME_SESS_TIMEOUT
Configurable value used by the PaC and PAA to close or disconnect
an established session in the access phase. This variable
indicates the expiration of the session and is set to the value of
Session-Lifetime AVP if present in the last PANA-Auth-Request
message in the case of the PaC. Otherwise, it is assumed that the
value is infinite and therefore has no expiration. Expiration of
LIFETIME_SESS_TIMEOUT will cause the event variable SESS_TIMEOUT
to be set.
ANY
This event variable is set to TRUE when any event occurs.
6.3. Configurable Values
RTX_MAX_NUM
Configurable maximum for how many retransmissions should be
attempted before aborting.
6.4. Common Message Initialization Rules
When a message is prepared for sending, it is initialized as follows:
o For a request message, R-flag of the header is set. Otherwise,
R-flag is not set.
o Other message header flags are not set. They are set explicitly
by specific state machine actions.
o AVPs that are mandatory to be included in a message are inserted
with appropriate values set.
6.5. Common Retransmission Rules
The state machines defined in this document assume that the PaC and
the PAA cache the last transmitted answer message. This scheme is
described in Section 5.2 of [RFC5191]. When the PaC or PAA receives
a retransmitted or duplicate request, it would be able to resend the
corresponding answer without any aid from the EAP layer. However, to
simplify the state machine description, this caching scheme is
omitted in the state machines below. In the case that there is not a
corresponding answer to a retransmitted request, the request will be
handled by the corresponding state machine.
6.6. Common State Transitions
The following transitions can occur at any state with exemptions
explicitly noted.
----------

7. PaC State Machine
7.1. Interface between PaC and EAP Peer
This interface defines the interactions between a PaC and an EAP
peer. The interface serves as a mechanism to deliver EAP messages
for the EAP peer. It allows the EAP peer to receive EAP requests and
send EAP responses via the PaC. It also provides a mechanism to
notify the EAP peer of PaC events and a mechanism to receive
notification of EAP peer events. The EAP message delivery mechanism
as well as the event notification mechanism in this interface have
direct correlation with the PaC state transition table entries.
These message delivery and event notifications mechanisms occur only
within the context of their associated states or exit actions.
7.1.1. Delivering EAP Messages from PaC to EAP Peer
TxEAP() procedure in the PaC state machine serves as the mechanism to
deliver EAP messages contained in PANA-Auth-Request messages to the
EAP peer. This procedure is enabled only after an EAP restart event
is notified to the EAP peer and before any event resulting in a
termination of the EAP peer session. In the case where the EAP peer
follows the EAP peer state machine defined in [RFC4137], TxEAP()
procedure sets eapReq variable of the EAP peer state machine and puts
the EAP request in eapReqData variable of the EAP peer state machine.
7.1.2. Delivering EAP Messages from EAP Peer to PaC
An EAP message is delivered from the EAP peer to the PaC via
EAP_RESPONSE event variable. The event variable is set when the EAP
peer passes the EAP message to its lower layer. In the case where
the EAP peer follows the EAP peer state machine defined in [RFC4137],
EAP_RESPONSE event variable refers to eapResp variable of the EAP
peer state machine and the EAP message is contained in eapRespData
variable of the EAP peer state machine.
7.1.3. EAP Restart Notification from PaC to EAP Peer
The EAP peer state machine defined in [RFC4137] has an initialization
procedure before receiving an EAP message. To initialize the EAP
state machine, the PaC state machine defines an event notification
mechanism to send an EAP (re)start event to the EAP peer. The event
notification is done via EAP_Restart() procedure in the
initialization action of the PaC state machine.
7.1.4. EAP Authentication Result Notification from EAP Peer to PaC
In order for the EAP peer to notify the PaC of an EAP authentication
result, EAP_SUCCESS and EAP_FAILURE event variables are defined. In
the case where the EAP peer follows the EAP peer state machine
defined in [RFC4137], EAP_SUCCESS and EAP_FAILURE event variables
refer to eapSuccess and eapFail variables of the EAP peer state
machine, respectively. In this case, if EAP_SUCCESS event variable
is set to TRUE and an MSK is generated by the EAP authentication
method in use, eapKeyAvailable variable is set to TRUE and eapKeyData
variable contains the MSK. Note that EAP_SUCCESS and EAP_FAILURE
event variables may be set to TRUE even before the PaC receives a PAR
with a 'Complete' flag set from the PAA.
7.1.5. Alternate Failure Notification from PaC to EAP Peer
alt_reject() procedure in the PaC state machine serves as the
mechanism to deliver an authentication failure event to the EAP peer
without accompanying an EAP message. In the case where the EAP peer
follows the EAP peer state machine defined in [RFC4137], alt_reject()
procedure sets altReject variable of the EAP peer state machine.
Note that the EAP peer state machine in [RFC4137] also defines
altAccept variable; however, it is never used in PANA in which EAP-
Success messages are reliably delivered by the last PANA-Auth
exchange.
7.2. Configurable Values
FAILED_SESS_TIMEOUT
This is a configurable value that allows the PaC to determine
whether a PaC authentication and authorization phase has stalled
without an explicit EAP success or failure notification.
7.3. Variables
AUTH_USER
This event variable is set to TRUE when initiation of EAP-based
(re-)authentication is triggered by the application.
EAP_SUCCESS
This event variable is set to TRUE when the EAP peer determines
that an EAP conversation completes with success.
EAP_FAILURE
This event variable is set to TRUE when the EAP peer determines
that an EAP conversation completes with failure.
EAP_RESPONSE
This event variable is set to TRUE when the EAP peer delivers an
EAP message to the PaC. This event accompanies an EAP message
received from the EAP peer.
EAP_RESP_TIMEOUT
This event variable is set to TRUE when the PaC that has passed an
EAP message to the EAP layer does not receive a subsequent EAP
message from the EAP layer in a given period. This provides a
time limit for certain EAP methods where user interaction may be
required.
EAP_DISCARD
This event variable is set to TRUE when the EAP peer indicates
that it has silently discarded the last received EAP-Request.
This event does not accompany any EAP message. In the case where
the EAP peer follows the EAP peer state machine defined in
[RFC4137], this event variable refers to eapNoResp. Note that
this specification does not support silently discarding EAP
messages. They are treated as fatal errors instead. This may
have an impact on denial-of-service resistance.
7.4. Procedures
boolean eap_piggyback()
This procedure returns TRUE to indicate whether the next EAP
response will be carried in the pending PAN message for
optimization.
void alt_reject()
This procedure informs the EAP peer of an authentication failure
event without accompanying an EAP message.
void EAP_RespTimerStart()
This is a procedure to start a timer to receive an EAP-Response
from the EAP peer.
void EAP_RespTimerStop()
This is a procedure to stop a timer to receive an EAP-Response
from the EAP peer.

8. PAA State Machine
8.1. Interface between PAA and EAP Authenticator
The interface between a PAA and an EAP authenticator provides a
mechanism to deliver EAP messages for the EAP authenticator as well
as a mechanism to notify the EAP authenticator of PAA events and to
receive notification of EAP authenticator events. These message
delivery and event notification mechanisms occur only within context
of their associated states or exit actions.
8.1.1. EAP Restart Notification from PAA to EAP Authenticator
An EAP authenticator state machine defined in [RFC4137] has an
initialization procedure before sending the first EAP request. To
initialize the EAP state machine, the PAA state machine defines an
event notification mechanism to send an EAP (re)start event to the
EAP authenticator. The event notification is done via EAP_Restart()
procedure in the initialization action of the PAA state machine.
8.1.2. Delivering EAP Responses from PAA to EAP Authenticator
TxEAP() procedure in the PAA state machine serves as the mechanism to
deliver EAP-Responses contained in PANA-Auth-Answer messages to the
EAP authenticator. This procedure is enabled only after an EAP
restart event is notified to the EAP authenticator and before any
event resulting in a termination of the EAP authenticator session.
In the case where the EAP authenticator follows the EAP authenticator
state machines defined in [RFC4137], TxEAP() procedure sets eapResp
variable of the EAP authenticator state machine and puts the EAP
response in eapRespData variable of the EAP authenticator state
machine.
8.1.3. Delivering EAP Messages from EAP Authenticator to PAA
An EAP request is delivered from the EAP authenticator to the PAA via
EAP_REQUEST event variable. The event variable is set when the EAP
authenticator passes the EAP request to its lower layer. In the case
where the EAP authenticator follows the EAP authenticator state
machines defined in [RFC4137], EAP_REQUEST event variable refers to
eapReq variable of the EAP authenticator state machine and the EAP
request is contained in eapReqData variable of the EAP authenticator
state machine.
8.1.4. EAP Authentication Result Notification from EAP Authenticator to
PAA
In order for the EAP authenticator to notify the PAA of the EAP
authentication result, EAP_SUCCESS, EAP_FAILURE, and EAP_TIMEOUT
event variables are defined. In the case where the EAP authenticator
follows the EAP authenticator state machines defined in [RFC4137],
EAP_SUCCESS, EAP_FAILURE, and EAP_TIMEOUT event variables refer to
eapSuccess, eapFail, and eapTimeout variables of the EAP
authenticator state machine, respectively. In this case, if
EAP_SUCCESS event variable is set to TRUE, an EAP-Success message is
contained in eapReqData variable of the EAP authenticator state
machine, and additionally, eapKeyAvailable variable is set to TRUE
and eapKeyData variable contains an MSK if the MSK is generated as a
result of successful authentication by the EAP authentication method
in use. Similarly, if EAP_FAILURE event variable is set to TRUE, an
EAP-Failure message is contained in eapReqData variable of the EAP
authenticator state machine. The PAA uses EAP_SUCCESS and
EAP_FAILURE event variables as a trigger to send a PAR message to the
PaC.
8.2. Variables
OPTIMIZED_INIT
This variable indicates whether the PAA is able to piggyback an
EAP-Request in the initial PANA-Auth-Request. Otherwise, it is
set to FALSE.
PAC_FOUND
This variable is set to TRUE as a result of a PAA-initiated
handshake.
REAUTH_TIMEOUT
This event variable is set to TRUE to indicate that the PAA
initiates a re-authentication with the PaC. The re-authentication
timeout should be set to a value less than the session timeout
carried in the Session-Lifetime AVP if present.
EAP_SUCCESS
This event variable is set to TRUE when an EAP conversation
completes with success. This event accompanies an EAP-Success
message passed from the EAP authenticator.
EAP_FAILURE
This event variable is set to TRUE when an EAP conversation
completes with failure. This event accompanies an EAP-Failure
message passed from the EAP authenticator.
EAP_REQUEST
This event variable is set to TRUE when the EAP authenticator
delivers an EAP Request to the PAA. This event accompanies an
EAP-Request message received from the EAP authenticator.
EAP_TIMEOUT
This event variable is set to TRUE when an EAP conversation times
out without generating an EAP-Success or an EAP-Failure message.
This event does not accompany any EAP message.
EAP_DISCARD
This event variable is set to TRUE when the EAP authenticator
indicates that it has silently discarded the last received EAP-
Response message. This event does not accompany any EAP message.
In the case where the EAP authenticator follows the EAP
authenticator state machines defined in [RFC4137], this event
variable refers to eapNoReq.
8.3. Procedures
boolean new_key_available()
This is a procedure to check whether the PANA session has a new
PANA_AUTH_KEY. If the state machine already has a PANA_AUTH_KEY,
it returns FALSE. If the state machine does not have a
PANA_AUTH_KEY, it tries to retrieve an MSK from the EAP entity.
If an MSK has been retrieved, it computes a PANA_AUTH_KEY from the
MSK and returns TRUE. Otherwise, it returns FALSE.

9. Implementation Considerations
9.1. PAA and PaC Interface to Service Management Entity
In general, it is assumed that each device or network equipment has a
PANA protocol stack available for use by other modules within the
device or network equipment. One such module is the Service
Management Entity (SME). The SME is a generic term for modules that
manage different services (including network protocols) that are
installed on a device or equipment. To integrate the PANA protocol
with the SME, it is recommended that a generic interface (i.e., the
SME-PANA interface) between the SME and the PANA protocol stack be
provided by the implementation. This interface should include common
procedures such as startup, shutdown, and re-authenticate signals.
It should also provide for extracting keying material. For the PAA,
the SME-PANA interface should also provide a method for communicating
filtering parameters to the Enforcement Point(s) when cryptographic
filtering is used. The filtering parameters include keying material
used for bootstrapping secured transport such as IPsec. When a PAA
device interacts with the backend authentication server using a AAA
protocol, its SME may also provide an interface to the AAA protocol
to obtain authorization parameters such as the authorization lifetime
and additional filtering parameters.
10. Security Considerations
This document's intent is to describe the PANA state machines fully.
To this end, any security concerns with this document are likely a
reflection of security concerns with PANA itself.
