           Constrained Join Proxy for Bootstrapping Protocols
                 draft-anima-constrained-join-proxy-02

Abstract

   This document defines a protocol to securely assign a pledge to a
   domain, represented by a Registrar, using an intermediary node
   between pledge and Registrar.  This intermediary node is known as a
   "constrained Join Proxy".

   This document extends the work of
   [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] by replacing the Circuit-
   proxy by a stateless/stateful constrained (CoAP) Join Proxy.  It
   transports join traffic from the pledge to the Registrar without
   requiring per-client state.

Internet-Draft                 Join-Proxy                  February 2021

1.  Introduction

   Enrolment of new nodes into networks with enrolled nodes present is
   described in [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] ("BRSKI") and
   makes use of Enrolment over Secure Transport (EST) [RFC7030] with
   [RFC8366] vouchers to securely enroll devices.  BRSKI connects new
   devices ("pledges") to "Registrars" via a Join Proxy.

   The specified solutions use https and may be too large in terms of
   code space or bandwidth required for constrained devices.
   Constrained devices possibly part of constrained networks [RFC7228]
   typically implement the IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless personal Area
   Networks (6LoWPAN) [RFC4944] and Constrained Application Protocol
   (CoAP) [RFC7252].

   CoAP can be run with the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS)
   [RFC6347] as a security protocol for authenticity and confidentiality
   of the messages.  This is known as the "coaps" scheme.  A constrained
   version of EST, using Coap and DTLS, is described in
   [I-D.ietf-ace-coap-est].  The {I-D.ietf-anima-constrained-voucher}
   describes the BRSKI extensions to the Registrar.

   DTLS is a client-server protocol relying on the underlying IP layer
   to perform the routing between the DTLS Client and the DTLS Server.
   However, the new "joining" device will not be IP routable until it is
   authenticated to the network.  A new "joining" device can only
   initially use a link-local IPv6 address to communicate with a
   neighbour node using neighbour discovery [RFC6775] until it receives
   the necessary network configuration parameters.  However, before the
   device can receive these configuration parameters, it needs to
   authenticate itself to the network to which it connects.  IPv6
   routing is necessary to establish a connection between joining device
   and the Registrar.

   A DTLS connection is required between Pledge and Registrar.

   This document specifies a new form of Join Proxy and protocol to act
   as intermediary between joining device and Registrar to establish a
   connection between joining device and Registrar.

   This document is very much inspired by text published earlier in
   [I-D.kumar-dice-dtls-relay].
   [I-D.richardson-anima-state-for-joinrouter] outlined the various
   options for building a join proxy.
   [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] adopted only the Circuit
   Proxy method (1), leaving the other methods as future work.  This
   document standardizes the CoAP/DTLS (method 4).

2.  Terminology

   The following terms are defined in [RFC8366], and are used
   identically as in that document: artifact, imprint, domain, Join
   Registrar/Coordinator (JRC), Manufacturer Authorized Signing
   Authority (MASA), pledge, Trust of First Use (TOFU), and Voucher.

3.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
   BCP 14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

4.  Join Proxy functionality

   As depicted in the Figure 1, the joining Device, or pledge (P), in an
   LLN mesh can be more than one hop away from the Registrar (R) and not
   yet authenticated into the network.

   In this situation, it can only communicate one-hop to its nearest
   neighbour, the Join Proxy (J) using their link-local IPv6 addresses.
   However, the Pledge (P) needs to communicate with end-to-end security
   with a Registrar hosting the Registrar (R) to authenticate and get
   the relevant system/network parameters.  If the Pledge (P) initiates
   a DTLS connection to the Registrar whose IP address has been pre-
   configured, then the packets are dropped at the Join Proxy (J) since
   the Pledge (P) is not yet admitted to the network or there is no IP
   routability to Pledge (P) for any returned messages.

                      Figure 1: multi-hop enrolment.

   Without routing the Pledge (P) cannot establish a secure connection
   to the Registrar (R) in the network assuming appropriate credentials
   are exchanged out-of-band, e.g. a hash of the Pledge (P)'s raw public
   key could be provided to the Registrar (R).

   Furthermore, the Pledge (P) may be unaware of the IP address of the
   Registrar (R) to initiate a DTLS connection and perform
   authentication.

   To overcome the problems with non-routability of DTLS packets and/or
   discovery of the destination address of the EST Server to contact,
   the Join Proxy is introduced.  This Join Proxy functionality is
   configured into all authenticated devices in the network which may
   act as the Join Proxy for newly joining nodes.  The Join Proxy allows
   for routing of the packets from the Pledge using IP routing to the
   intended Registrar.

5.  Join Proxy specification

   A Join Proxy can operate in two modes:

   o  Statefull mode

   o  Stateless mode

5.1.  Statefull Join Proxy

   In stateful mode, the joining node forwards the DTLS messages to the
   Registrar.

   Assume that the Pledge does not know the IP address of the Registrar
   it needs to contact.  The Join Proxy has has been enrolled via the
   Registrar and consequently knows the IP address and port of the
   Registrar.  The Pledge first discovers and selects the most
   appropriate Join Proxy.  (Discovery can be based upon
   [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] section 4.3, or via DNS-SD
   service discovery [RFC6763]).  The Pledge initiates its request as if
   the Join Proxy is the intended Registrar.  The Join Proxy receives
   the message at a discoverable "Join" port.  The Join Proxy changes
   the IP packet (without modifying the DTLS message) by modifying both
   the source and destination addresses to forward the message to the
   intended Registrar.  The Join Proxy maintains a 4-tuple array to
   translate the DTLS messages received from the Registrar and forward
   it to the EST Client.  This is a form of Network Address translation,
   where the Join Proxy acts as a forward proxy.  In Figure 2 the
   various steps of the message flow are shown, with 5684 being the
   standard coaps port:

5.2.  Stateless Join Proxy

   The stateless Join Proxy aims to minimize the requirements on the
   constrained Join Proxy device.  Stateless operation requires no
   memory in the Join Proxy device, but may also reduce the CPU impact
   as the device does not need to search through a state table.

   If an untrusted Pledge that can only use link-local addressing wants
   to contact a trusted Registrar, and the Registrar is more than one
   hop away, it sends the DTLS message to the Join Proxy.

   When a Pledge attempts a DTLS connection to the Join Proxy, it uses
   its link-local IP address as its IP source address.  This message is
   transmitted one-hop to a neighbouring (Join Proxy) node.  Under
   normal circumstances, this message would be dropped at the neighbour
   node since the Pledge is not yet IP routable or is not yet
   authenticated to send messages through the network.  However, if the
   neighbour device has the Join Proxy functionality enabled, it routes
   the DTLS message to its Registrar of choice.

   The Join Proxy extends this message into a new type of message called
   Join ProxY (JPY) message and sends it on to the Registrar.

   The JPY message payload consists of two parts:

   o  Header (H) field: consisting of the source link-local address and
      port of the Pledge (P), and

   o  Contents (C) field: containing the original DTLS message.

   On receiving the JPY message, the Registrar retrieves the two parts.

   The Registrar transiently stores the Header field information.  The
   Registrar uses the Contents field to execute the Registrar
   functionality.  However, when the Registrar replies, it also extends
   its DTLS message with the header field in a JPY message and sends it
   back to the Join Proxy.  The Registrar SHOULD NOT assume that it can
   decode the Header Field, it should simply repeat it when responding.
   The Header contains the original source link-local address and port
   of the pledge from the transient state stored earlier and the
   Contents field contains the DTLS message.

   On receiving the JPY message, the Join Proxy retrieves the two parts.
   It uses the Header field to route the DTLS message retrieved from the
   Contents field to the Pledge.

   In this scenario, both the Registrar and the Join Proxy use
   discoverable "Join" ports.

   The Figure 3 depicts the message flow diagram:

5.3.  Stateless Message structure

   The JPY message is constructed as a payload with media-type
   aplication/cbor

   Header and Contents fields togther are one cbor array of 5 elements:

   1.  header field: containing a CBOR array [RFC7049] with the pledge
       IPv6 Link Local address as a cbor byte string, the pledge's UDP
       port number as a CBOR integer, the IP address family (IPv4/IPv6)
       as a cbor integer, and the proxy's ifindex or other identifier
       for the physical port as cbor integer.  The header field is not
       DTLS encrypted.

   2.  Content field: containing the DTLS encrypted payload as a CBOR
       byte string.

   The join_proxy cannot decrypt the DTLS ecrypted payload and has no
   knowledge of the transported media type.

       JPY_message =
       [
          ip      : bstr,
          port    : int,
          family  : int,
          index   : int
          payload : bstr
       ]

               Figure 4: CDDL representation of JPY message

   The content fields are DTLS encrypted.  In CBOR diagnostic notation
   the payload JPY[H(IP_P:p_P)], will look like:

         [h'IP_p', p_P, family, ident, h'DTLS-content']

   Examples are shown in Appendix A.

6.  Comparison of stateless and statefull modes

   The stateful and stateless mode of operation for the Join Proxy have
   their advantages and disadvantages.  This section should enable to
   make a choice between the two modes based on the available device
   resources and network bandwidth.

7.  Discovery

   It is assumed that Join Proxy seamlessly provides a coaps connection
   between Pledge and coaps Registrar.  In particular this section
   replaces section 4.2 of [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra].

   The discovery follows two steps:

   1.  The pledge is one hop away from the Registrar.  The pledge
       discovers the link-local address of the Registrar as described in
       {I-D.ietf-ace-coap-est}. From then on, it follows the BRSKI
       process as described in {I-D.ietf-ace-coap-est}, using link-local
       addresses.

   2.  The pledge is more than one hop away from a relevant Registrar,
       and discovers the link-local address and join port of a Join

Richardson, et al.       Expires August 7, 2021                [Page 10]
Internet-Draft                 Join-Proxy                  February 2021

       Proxy.  The pledge then follows the BRSKI procedure using the
       link-local address of the Join Proxy.

   3.  The stateless Join Proxy discovers the join port of the Registrar

   Once a pledge is enrolled, it may function as Join Proxy.  The Join
   Proxy functions are advertised as descibed below.  In principle, the
   Join Proxy functions are offered via a "join" port, and not the
   standard coaps port.  Also the Registrar offer a "join" port to which
   the stateless join proxy sends the JPY message.  The Join Proxy and
   Registrar MUST show the extra join port number when reponding to the
   .well-known/core request addressed to the standard coap/coaps port.

   Three discovery cases are discussed: coap discovery, 6tisch discovery
   and GRASP discovery.

7.1.  Pledge discovery of Registrar

   The Pledge and Join Proxy are assumed to communicate via Link-Local
   addresses.

7.1.1.  CoAP discovery

   The discovery of the coaps Registrar, using coap discovery, by the
   Join Proxy follows section 6 of [I-D.ietf-ace-coap-est].  The
   extension to discover the additional port needed by the stateless
   proxy is described in Section 7.2.2.

7.1.2.  Autonomous Network

   In the context of autonomous networks, the Join Proxy uses the DULL
   GRASP M_FLOOD mechanism to announce itself.  Section 4.1.1 of
   [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] discusses this in more
   detail.  The Registrar announces itself using ACP instance of GRASP
   using M_FLOOD messages.  Autonomous Network Join Proxies MUST support
   GRASP discovery of Registrar as decribed in section 4.3 of
   [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] .

7.1.3.  6tisch discovery

   The discovery of Registrar by the pledge uses the enhanced beacons as
   discussed in [I-D.ietf-6tisch-enrollment-enhanced-beacon].

7.2.  Pledge discovers Join Proxy

Richardson, et al.       Expires August 7, 2021                [Page 11]
Internet-Draft                 Join-Proxy                  February 2021

7.2.1.  Autonomous Network

   The pledge MUST listen for GRASP M_FLOOD [I-D.ietf-anima-grasp]
   announcements of the objective: "AN_Proxy".  See section
   Section 4.1.1 [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra] for the details
   of the objective.

7.2.2.  CoAP discovery

   In the context of a coap network without Autonomous Network support,
   discovery follows the standard coap policy.  The Pledge can discover
   a Join Proxy by sending a link-local multicast message to ALL CoAP
   Nodes with address FF02::FD.  Multiple or no nodes may respond.  The
   handling of multiple responses and the absence of responses follow
   section 4 of [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra].

   The join port of the Join Proxy is discovered by sending a GET
   request to "/.well-known/core" including a resource type (rt)
   parameter with the value "brski-proxy" [RFC6690].  Upon success, the
   return payload will contain the join port.

   The example below shows the discovery of the join port of the Join
   Proxy.

     REQ: GET coap://[FF02::FD]/.well-known/core?rt=brski-proxy

     RES: 2.05 Content
     <coaps://[IP_address]:join-port>; rt="brski-proxy"

   Port numbers are assumed to be the default numbers 5683 and 5684 for
   coap and coaps respectively (sections 12.6 and 12.7 of [RFC7252] when
   not shown in the response.  Discoverable port numbers are usually
   returned for Join Proxy resources in the <href> of the payload (see
   section 5.1 of [I-D.ietf-ace-coap-est]).

7.3.  Join Proxy discovers Registrar join port

7.3.1.  CoAP discovery

   The stateless Join Proxy can discover the join port of the Registrar
   by sending a GET request to "/.well-known/core" including a resource
   type (rt) parameter with the value "join-proxy" [RFC6690].  Upon
   success, the return payload will contain the join Port of the
   Registrar.

Internet-Draft                 Join-Proxy                  February 2021

     REQ: GET coap://[IP_address]/.well-known/core?rt=brski-proxy

     RES: 2.05 Content
     <coaps://[IP_address]:join-port>; rt="join-proxy"

   The discoverable port numbers are usually returned for Join Proxy
   resources in the <href> of the payload (see section 5.1 of
   [I-D.ietf-ace-coap-est]).

8.  Security Considerations

   It should be noted here that the contents of the CBOR map used to
   convey return address information is not protected.  However, the
   communication is between the Proxy and a known registrar are over the
   already secured portion of the network, so are not visible to
   eavesdropping systems.

   All of the concerns in [I-D.ietf-anima-bootstrapping-keyinfra]
   section 4.1 apply.  The pledge can be deceived by malicious AN_Proxy
   announcements.  The pledge will only join a network to which it
   receives a valid [RFC8366] voucher.

   If the proxy/Registrar was not over a secure network, then an
   attacker could change the cbor array, causing the pledge to send
   traffic to another node.  If the such scenario needed to be
   supported, then it would be reasonable for the Proxy to encrypt the
   CBOR array using a locally generated symmetric key.  The Registrar
   would not be able to examine the result, but it does not need to do
   so.  This is a topic for future work.

9.  IANA Considerations

   This document needs to create a registry for key indices in the CBOR
   map.  It should be given a name, and the amending formula should be
   IETF Specification.

9.1.  Resource Type registry

   This specification registers a new Resource Type (rt=) Link Target
   Attributes in the "Resource Type (rt=) Link Target Attribute Values"
   subregistry under the "Constrained RESTful Environments (CoRE)
   Parameters" registry.

     rt="brski-proxy". This BRSKI resource is used to query and return
     the supported BRSKI port of the Join Proxy.

     rt="join-proxy". This BRSKI resource is used to query and return
     the supported BRSKI port of the Registrar.

   The examples show the get coaps://[192.168.1.200]:5965/est/crts to a
   Registrar.  The header generated between Client and registrar and
   from registrar to client are shown in detail.  The DTLS encrypted
   code is not shown.

   The request from Join Proxy to Registrar looks like:
