Abstract

   The Layer 3 Discovery and Liveness protocol OPEN PDU may contain a
   key and a certificate, which can be used to verify signatures on
   subsequent PDUs.  This document describes two mechanisms based on
   digital signatures, one that is Trust On First Use (TOFU), and one
   that uses certificates to provide authentication as well as session
   integrity.

1.  Introduction

   This draft is being published without incorporating changes from an
   excellent security review.  This is being done so a couple of other
   drafts can reference it.  While all comments will, of course, be
   appreciated, readers may want to wait for the -01 version.

   The Layer 3 Discovery and Liveness protocol [old ref because new
   draft not yet pushed] [I-D.ietf-lsvr-l3dl] OPEN PDU contains an
   algorithm specifier, a key, and a certificate, which can be used to
   verify signatures on subsequent PDUs.  This document describes two
   methods of key generation and signing for use by L3DL, Trust On First
   Use (TOFU) and a PKI-based mechanism to provide authentication as
   well as session integrity.

   The Key in the OPEN PDU SHOULD be the public key of an asymmetric key
   pair.  The sender signs with the private key, of course.  The device
   sending the OPEN may use one key for all links, a different key for
   each link, or some aggregation(s) thereof.
