Internet-Draft           IPv6 for Cellular Hosts          September 2012

1.  Introduction

   [RFC3316] lists a set of features to be supported by cellular hosts
   to connect to GPRS and UMTS networks.  Since the publication of that
   document, new functions have been specified within 3GPP and IETF
   while others have been updated.

   Moreover, in light of recent IPv6 experiments and trials, additional
   features to ease IPv6-only deployments while continuing accessing to
   IPv4-only service are to be considered.

   This document updates [RFC3316] with new functionalities to be
   supported by cellular hosts.  Note [RFC3316] considered only GPRS and
   UMTS networks; this document also considers EPS (Evolved Packet
   System).

   A detailed overview of IPv6 support in 3GPP architectures is provided
   in [RFC6459].

   This document makes use of the terms defined in [RFC6459].

1.1.  Scope

   Various types of nodes are likely to be connected to 3GPP networks
   and will require specific functions.  Indeed, a 3GPP network can be
   used to connect a phone, a CPE, M2M device, etc.  Because of the
   diversity of terminals which may connect to 3GPP networks, this
   document provides first some generic IPv6 functionalities which are
   valid for any node to be directly connected to 3GPP networks,
   whatever its function or whatever the services (e.g., DNS, SIP) it
   supports.  Then, dedicated sections are included to cover specific
   functionalities to be supported by some type of devices (e.g.,
   smartphones, devices providing some LAN functions (mobile CPE or
   dongles), M2M devices).

   M2M devices specifications are not considered in the first version of
   this document.

2.  Basic Connectivity Requirements

   The requirements listed below are valid for 3GPP GPRS, UMTS and 3GPP
   EPS access except that for EPS the cellular host requests IPv4v6 PDN
   type (respectively IPv6 PDN type when the GPRS cellular host has to
   request an IPv4v6 PDP context (respectively an IPv6 PDP context).

Internet-Draft           IPv6 for Cellular Hosts          September 2012

   REQ#1:  The cellular host MUST support both IPv6 PDP and IPv4v6 PDP
      contexts

         This allows each operator to select its own strategy regarding
         IPv6 introduction.  Both IPv6 and IPv4v6 PDP contexts MUST be
         supported in addition to IPv4 PDP context.  The network will be
         tuned so that it can honor IPv4, IPv6 or IPv4v6 PDP requests.

   REQ#2:  The cellular host MUST comply with the behavior defined in
      [TS.23060] and [TS.24008] in terms of requested PDP context type.
      In particular the cellular host MUST request an IPv6 PDP context
      if the cellular host is IPv6-only and requesting an IPv4v6 PDP
      context if the cellular host is dual stack or when the cellular
      host is not aware of connectivity types requested by devices
      connected to it (e.g., cellular host with LAN capabilities):

      *  If the requested PDP context IPv4v6 is not supported but IPv4
         and IPv6 PDP types are allowed, the cellular host is configured
         with an IPv4 address or an IPv6 prefix.  It MAY initiate
         another PDP request than the one already activated for a given
         APN.

      *  If the requested PDP type and subscription data allows only one
         IP address family (IPv4 or IPv6), the cellular host MUST NOT
         request a second PDP context to the same APN for the other IP
         address family.

   REQ#3:  The cellular host MUST support the PCO (Protocol
      Configuration Options) to retrieve the IPv6 address of the
      Recursive DNS server.

         In band signaling is a convenient method to inform the cellular
         host about various services, including DNS server information.
         It does not require any specific protocol to be supported and
         it is already deployed in IPv4 cellular networks to convey such
         DNS information.

   REQ#4:  The cellular host SHOULD support Router Advertisement Options
      [RFC6106] for DNS configuration.

         The support of this function allows for consistent method to
         inform cellular host about DNS recursive server across various
         access network types.  The cellular host SHOULD support RA-
         based DNS information discovery.

Internet-Draft           IPv6 for Cellular Hosts          September 2012

   REQ#5:  The cellular host SHOULD embed a DHCPv6 client [RFC3315]

         In order to get some consistent way to inform cellular host
         about DNS recursive server across various access networks and
         in case [RFC6106] is not supported, the cellular host SHOULD
         retrieving DNS information using DHCPv6 [RFC3646].

   REQ#6:  The cellular host SHOULD support a method to locally
      construct IPv4-embedded IPv6 addresses [RFC6052].

         This allows to solve issues related to application which uses
         referral with IPv4 literals.

   REQ#7:  Particularly, the cellular host SHOULD support Customer Side
      Translator function (CLAT, [I-D.ietf-v6ops-464xlat]) function
      which is compliant with [RFC6052][RFC6145][RFC6146].

         As reported in [CLAT], 15% of applications are not compatible
         with IPv6-only connectivity.  Activating CLAT function in the
         cellular host would allow to solve this problem and offer a
         similar application experience for both users with IPv6-only
         hosts and IPv4-enabled hosts.  CLAT function is compatible with
         the introduction of NAT64 capabilities in the core network.

   REQ#8:  The cellular device MAY embed a DNS64 function [RFC6147].

         This allows to be compatible with DNSSEC.  A means to configure
         PREFIX64 is required to be supported.

   REQ#9:  The cellular host SHOULD support PCP [I-D.ietf-pcp-base].

         The support of PCP is seen as a driver to save battery
         consumption exacerbated b keepalive messages and also to allow
         for successful incoming connections.  Indeed, because several
         stateful devices may be enabled in mobile networks (e.g., NAT,
         Firewalls), PCP can be used by the cellular host to control and
         to retrieve lifetime of NAT bindings, to ease NAT and Firewall
         traversal for applications embedding IP address, to reduce
         keep-alive messages and inherently save battery consumption as
         reported in [I-D.chen-pcp-mobile-deployment].

   REQ#10:  A method to learn PREFIX64 SHOULD be supported by cellular
      hosts.

         In PCP-based environments, cellular hosts SHOULD follow
         [I-D.boucadair-pcp-nat64-prefix64-option] to learn the IPv6
         Prefix used by an upstream PCP-controlled NAT64 device.

Internet-Draft           IPv6 for Cellular Hosts          September 2012

         If PCP is not enabled, the cellular host SHOULD implement the
         method specified in [I-D.ietf-behave-nat64-discovery-heuristic]
         to retrieve the PREFIX64.

   REQ#11:  The cellular host SHOULD support means to prefer native IPv6
      connection instead of crossing IPv4/IPv6 interworking devices.

         Cellular hosts SHOULD follow the procedure specified in
         [RFC6724] for address selection.

   REQ#12:  The cellular host MAY support the procedure defined in
      [RFC6555].

2.1.  WiFi Connectivity

   It is more and more common that cellular hosts have some Wi-Fi
   interfaces in addition to cellular interface.  These hosts are likely
   to be connected to private or public hotspots.  Below are listed some
   generic requirements:

   REQ#13:  IPv6 MUST be supported on the Wi-Fi interface.

   REQ#14:  DHCPv6 client SHOULD be supported on Wi-Fi interface
      ([RFC3736])

   REQ#15:  Wi-Fi interface SHOULD support Router Advertisement Options
      for DNS configuration ([RFC6106])

3.  Advanced Requirements

   REQ#16:  The cellular host MUST support IPv6 addressing architecture
      ([RFC4291]).  For address representation, [RFC5952] MUST be
      supported.

   REQ#17:  The cellular host MUST support the ICMPv6 protocol
      ([RFC4443])

         The base protocol MUST be fully implemented by every IPv6 node
         as indicated in Section 2 of [RFC4443].

   REQ#18:  The device MUST support the Neighbor Discovery Protocol
      ([RFC4861] and [RFC5942]).

   REQ#19:  The cellular host MAY support DHCPv6.

         DHCPv6 may be useful for cellular host configuration, besides
         the address configuration itself where stateless addressing is

Internet-Draft           IPv6 for Cellular Hosts          September 2012

         recommended.

   REQ#20:  The cellular host MUST support Stateless Address Auto
      Configuration ([RFC4862]) apart from the exceptions noted in
      [TS.23060] (3G) or [TS.23401] (LTE):

         Stateless mode is the only way to configure a cellular host.
         The GGSN must allocate a prefix that is unique within its scope
         to each primary PDP context.

         The cellular host MUST use the interface identifier sent in PDP
         Context Accept message to configure its link local address.
         The cellular host may use a different Interface Identifiers to
         configure its global addresses.

   REQ#21:  The cellular host SHOULD NOT perform Duplicate Address
      Detection (DAD) for these Global IPv6 addresses (as the GGSN or
      PDN-GW must not configure any IPv6 addresses using the prefix
      allocated to the cellular host).

   REQ#22:  The device SHOULD support the Privacy Extensions for
      Stateless Address Autoconfiguration in IPv6 ([RFC4941])

         The activation of privacy extension make it hard to track a
         host compared to using the same interface identifier over the
         time.  [RFC4941] does not require any DAD mechanism to be
         activated as the GGSN (or PDN-GW) MUST NOT configure any global
         address based on the prefix allocated to the cellular host.

   REQ#23:  The device SHOULD support ROHC for IPv6 ([RFC5795])

         Bandwidth in mobile environments must be optimized as much as
         possible.  ROHC provides a solution to reduce bandwidth
         consumption and to reduce the impact of having bigger header in
         IPv6 compared to IPv4.

   REQ#24:  The device SHOULD support IPv6 Router Advertisement Flags
      Options ([RFC5175]).

         Some flags are used by GGSN (or PDN-GW) to inform cellular
         hosts about autoconfiguration process.

   REQ#25:  The device SHOULD support Path MTU discovery ([RFC1981]).
      If MTU used by cellular hosts is larger than 1280 bytes, they can
      rely on Path MTU discovery function to discover real path MTU.

Internet-Draft           IPv6 for Cellular Hosts          September 2012

   REQ#26:  The devices SHOULD support at least IPsec version 2 tunnel
      mode (IKE2, [RFC5996]).

   REQ#27:  The device MAY support [I-D.boucadair-6man-sip-proxy] to
      discover a SIP Proxy Server.

         Access to sensitive SIP-based service offering relies on the
         provisioning of the IP reachability information (IP address or
         FQDN) of the outbound SIP Proxy Server [RFC3261].  Two means
         have been defined in the past to provision such information:
         (1) DHCPv6 SIP options or (2) Dedicated 3GPP PCO to convey the
         address of the P-CSCF.  Nevertheless, these means are not
         sufficient because of the following reasons: (1) PCO-IE is not
         mandatory in 3G networks (e.g., PCO information may not be
         supported by terminals). (2) DHCPv6 is not required in all 3GPP
         releases; moreover the support of DHCPv6 client is not
         mandatory in the IETF IPv6 node requirements. (3) PCO-IE is not
         available in non-3GPP networks.

         This is very critical when the UE performs a network attachment
         in a non-3GPP network because the user won't have access to
         SIP-based services if no alternative means are supported.

4.  Cellular Hosts with LAN Capabilities

   Cellular hosts may provide some IP service access to other devices
   connected to them.  In such case, all connected devices are sharing
   the same GPRS, UMTS or EPS connection.  These cellular hosts can be a
   CPE or specific cellular hosts commercialized to set up rapidly LANs
   in various environment, or it can also be a smartphone or a dongles
   with tethering features.  In addition to the generic requirements
   listed in Section 2, these hosts will have to embed specific
   functions in order to allow other IP-enabled devices to get IP
   connectivity services through these cellular devices.

   REQ#28:  The cellular device MUST support ND Proxy function [RFC4389]
      to enable sharing of the /64 prefix between the 3GPP interface
      towards the GGSN (WAN interface) and the LAN interfaces
      recommendation in [TS.23060] and [TS.23401] is to allocate some
      /64 prefix to cellular hosts.

         Prefix delegation which allows for allocating shorter prefixes
         is only available in 3GPP Release 10.  As such, the available
         solution is IPv6-enabled devices connected to cellular device
         use this /64 prefix for IPv6 address autoconfiguration.  This
         solution has some drawbacks regarding Duplicate Address
         Detection and multilink subnet requirements but it provides IP

Internet-Draft           IPv6 for Cellular Hosts          September 2012

         connectivity in such scenarios.

   REQ#29:  The cellular device MUST support Prefix Delegation
      capabilities [RFC3633].  Particularly, it MUST behave as a
      Requesting Router.

         Cellular networks are more and more perceived as an alternative
         to fixed networks for home services delivery; especially with
         the advent of smartphones and dongles.  There is a need for an
         efficient mechanism to assign shorter prefix than /64 to
         cellular hosts so that each LAN segment can get its own /64
         prefix and multilink subnet issues to be avoided.

   REQ#30:  The cellular device SHOULD support Prefix Exclude Option for
      DHCPv6-based Prefix Delegation as defined in [RFC6603].

         In case a prefix is delegated to the cellular host using
         DHCPv6, the cellular device will be configured with two
         prefixes: (1) one for 3GPP link allocated using SLAAC mechanism
         and (2) another one delegated for LANs acquired during Prefix
         Delegation operation.

         Without Prefix Exclude Option, the cellular device will be
         identified with two different prefixes leading to additional
         complexity to be managed in the operational network management
         side.  With Prefix Exclude Option, /64 prefix obtained during
         SLAAC phase can be included in shorter prefix obtained through
         DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation and the cellular device can be
         identified using only that prefix.

   REQ#31:  The cellular device SHOULD support Customer Side Translator
      (CLAT) [I-D.ietf-v6ops-464xlat].

         Various IP devices are likely to be connected to cellular
         device, acting as a CPE.  Some of these devices can be dual
         stack, others are IPv6-only or IPv4-only.  IPv6-only
         connectivity for cellular device does not allow IPv4-only
         sessions to be established for hosts connected on LAN segment
         of cellular devices.

         In order to allow IPv4 sessions establishment initiated from
         devices located on LAN segment side and target IPv4 nodes, a
         solution consists in integrating the CLAT function in the
         cellular device.  As elaborated in Section 2, the CLAT function
         allows also IPv4 applications to continue running over an IPv6-
         only host.

Internet-Draft           IPv6 for Cellular Hosts          September 2012

   REQ#32:  The cellular device MUST be compliant with CPE requirements
      specified in [RFC6204]

5.  APIs & Applications

   REQ#33:  Name resolution libraries MUST support both IPv4 and IPv6.

   REQ#34:  Applications MUST be independent of the underlying IP
      address family.

   REQ#35:  Applications using URIs MUST follow [RFC3986].  For example,
      SIP applications MUST follow the correction defined in [RFC5954].

6.  Security Considerations

   Security considerations identified in [RFC3316] are to be taken into
   account.

   REQ#36:  If the cellular device provides LAN features, it MUST be
      compliant with security requirements specified in [RFC6092].
