            Labeled IPsec Traffic Selector support for IKEv2
                  draft-ietf-ipsecme-labeled-ipsec-00

Abstract

   This document defines two new Traffic Selector (TS) Types for
   Internet Key Exchange version 2 to add support for Mandatory Access
   Control (MAC) security labels, also known as "Labeled IPsec".  The
   two new TS Types are TS_IPV4_ADDR_RANGE_SECLABEL and
   TS_IPV6_ADDR_RANGE_SECLABEL, which are identical to their non-
   seclabel namesakes except for the addition of a variable length
   opaque field specifying the security label.  These new Traffic
   Selector Types facilitate negotiating security labels as an
   additional selector of the Security Policy Database to further
   restrict the type of traffic allowed to be send and received over the
   IPsec SA.

1.  Introduction

   In computer security, Mandatory Access Control usually refers to
   systems in which all subjects and objects are assigned a security
   label.  A security label is comprised of a set of security
   attributes.  The security labels along with a system authorization
   policy determine access.  Rules within the system authorization
   policy determine whether the access will be granted based on the
   security attributes of the subject and object.

   Traditionally, security labels used by Multilevel Systems (MLS) are
   comprised of a sensitivity level (or classification) field and a
   compartment (or category) field, as defined in [FIPS188] and
   [RFC5570].  As MAC systems evolved, other MAC models gained in
   popularity.  For example, SELinux, a Flux Advanced Security Kernel
   (FLASK) implementation, has security labels represented as colon-
   separated ASCII strings composed of values for identity, role, and
   type.  The security labels are often referred to as security
   contexts.

   This document specifies two new Traffic Selector Types for IKEv2 that
   can be used to negotiate security labels as additional selectors for
   the Security Policy Database (SPD) to further restrict the type of
   traffic allowed to be send and received over the IPsec SA.
