    Content Delivery Network Interconnection (CDNI) Footprint Types:
                       Subdivision Code and Union
             draft-ietf-cdni-additional-footprint-types-03

Abstract

   Open Caching architecture is a use case of Content Delivery Networks
   Interconnection (CDNI) in which the commercial Content Delivery
   Network (CDN) is the upstream CDN (uCDN) and the ISP caching layer
   serves as the downstream CDN (dCDN).  This document supplements the
   CDNI Metadata Footprint Types defined in RFC 8006.  The Footprint
   Types defined in this document can be used for Footprint objects as
   part of the Metadata interface (MI) defined in RFC 8006 or the
   Footprint & Capabilities Advertisement interface (FCI) defined in RFC
   8008.  The document also updates RFC 9241 with relevant ALTO entity
   domain types.  The defined Footprint Types are derived from
   requirements raised by Open Caching but are also applicable to CDNI
   use cases in general.

1.  Introduction

   The Streaming Video Technology Alliance [SVTA] is a global
   association that works to solve streaming video challenges in an
   effort to improve end-user experience and adoption.  The Open Caching
   Working Group [OCWG] of the Streaming Video Technology Alliance
   [SVTA] is focused on the delegation of video delivery requests from
   commercial CDNs to a caching layer at the ISP's network.  Open
   Caching architecture is a specific use case of CDNI where the
   commercial CDN is the upstream CDN (uCDN) and the ISP caching layer

   is the downstream CDN (dCDN).  The Open Caching Request Routing
   Specification [OC-RR] defines the Request Routing process and the
   interfaces that are required for its provisioning.  This document
   defines and registers CDNI Footprint and Capabilities objects
   [RFC8008] that are required for Open Caching Request Routing.

   For consistency with other CDNI documents this document follows the
   CDNI convention of uCDN (upstream CDN) and dCDN (downstream CDN) to
   represent the commercial CDN and ISP caching layer respectively.

   This document registers two CDNI Metadata Footprint Types (section
   7.2 of [RFC8006]) for the defined objects:

   *  Subdivision Code Footprint Type (e.g., for a dCDN advertising a
      footprint that is specific to a State in the USA)

   *  Collection Footprint Type (for a dCDN advertising a footprint that
      consists of a group built from multiple Footprints Types, e.g.,
      both IPv4 and IPv6 client addresses)

1.1.  Terminology

   The following terms are used throughout this document:

   *  CDN - Content Delivery Network

   Additionally, this document reuses the terminology defined in
   [RFC6707], [RFC7336], [RFC8006], and [RFC8008].  Specifically, we use
   the following CDNI acronyms:

   *  uCDN, dCDN - Upstream CDN and Downstream CDN respectively (see
      [RFC7336] )

2.  CDNI Metadata Additional Footprint Types

   Section 5 of [RFC8008] describes the FCI Capability Advertisement
   Object, which includes an array of CDNI Footprint Objects.  Each such
   object has a footprint-type and a footprint-value, as described in
   section 4.2.2.2 of [RFC8006].  This document defines additional
   footprint types, beyond those mentioned in CDNI metadata [RFC8006].

2.1.  CDNI Metadata Subdivision Code Footprint Type

   Section 4.3.8 of [RFC8006] specifies the "Country Code" footprint
   type for listing [ISO3166-1] alpha-2 codes.  Using Footprint Objects
   of this type, one can define an FCI Capability Advertisement Object
   footprint constraint that matches a specific country.  Herein is
   defined the subdivisioncode simple data type, as well as a footprint
   type allowing the dCDN to define constraints matching geographic
   areas with better granularity, specifically using the [ISO3166-2]
   Country Subdivision codes.

2.1.1.  CDNI Metadata Subdivision Code Data Type

   The "subdivisioncode" data type specified in Section 2.1.1.1,
   describes a country specific subdivision using an [ISO3166-2] code.
   The data type is added to the list of data types described in section
   4.3 of [RFC8006] that are used as properties of CDNI Metadata
   objects.

2.1.1.1.  CDNI Metadata Subdivision Code Data Type Description

   An [ISO3166-2] code in lower case.  Each code consists of two parts
   separated by a hyphen.  The first part is the [ISO3166-1] code of the
   country.  The second part is a string of up to three alphanumeric
   characters.

      Type: String

      Example Subdivision Codes:

      "ca-ns"

      "us-ny"

2.1.2.  CDNI Metadata Subdivision Code Footprint Type Description

   The "subdivisioncode" simple data type specified in Section 2.1.1, is
   added to the data types listed as footprint types in section 4.2.2.2
   of [RFC8006] .

   Below is an example using a footprint object of type
   "subdivisioncode".  The Footprint Object in this example creates a
   constraint matching clients both in the Nova-Scotia province of
   Canada (ISO [ISO3166-2] code "CA-NS"), as well as in the state of
   New-York In the US (ISO [ISO3166-2] code "US-NY").

   {
     "capabilities": [
       {
         "capability-type": <CDNI capability object type>,
         "capability-value": <CDNI capability object>,
         "footprints": [
             {
                 "footprint-type": "subdivisioncode",
                 "footprint-value": ["ca-ns", "us-ny"]
             }
         ]
       }
     ]
   }


2.2.  CDNI Metadata Footprint Union Footprint Type

   As described in section 5 of [RFC8008], the FCI Capability
   Advertisement Object includes an array of CDNI Footprint Objects.
   Appendix B of [RFC8008] specifies the semantics of a Footprint
   Objects array as a multiple, additive, footprint constraints.  This
   implies that the advertisement of different footprint types narrows
   the dCDN's candidacy cumulatively.

   Sections 4.3.5 and 4.3.6 of [RFC8006] specify the "IPv4CIDR" and
   "IPv6CIDR" footprint types, respectively, for listing IP addresses
   blocks.  Using Footprint Objects of these types, one can define FCI
   Capability Advertisement Object footprint constraints that match IPv4
   or IPv6 clients.  However, the described "narrowing" semantic of the
   Footprint Objects array prevents the usage of these objects together
   to create a footprint constraint that matches IPv4 clients together
   with IPv6 clients.

   Below is an example for an attempt at creating an object matching
   IPv4 clients of subnet "192.0.2.0/24", as well as IPv6 clients of
   subnet "2001:db8::/32".  Such a definition results in an empty list
   of clients, as the constraints are additives and a client address
   cannot be both IPv4 and IPv6.

   {
     "capabilities": [
       {
         "capability-type": <CDNI capability object type>,
         "capability-value": <CDNI capability object>,
         "footprints": [
             {
                 "footprint-type": "ipv4cidr",
                 "footprint-value": ["192.0.2.0/24"]
             },
             {
                 "footprint-type": "ipv6cidr",
                 "footprint-value": ["2001:db8::/32"]
             }
         ]
       }
     ]
   }


   To overcome the described limitation and allow a list of footprint
   constraints that match both IPv4 and IPv6 client addresses, below is
   introduced the "footprintunion" footprint type.  This footprint type
   allows the collection of multiple footprint-objects into a unified
   object.  It is useful for resolving the above limitation, as well as
   for unifying footprints of additional types such as countrycode and
   subdivisioncode.

2.2.1.  CDNI Metadata Footprint Union Data Type

   The "footprintunion" data type is based on the Footprint Object
   already defined in section 4.2.2.2 of [RFC8006].  The footprint-value
   for a footprintunion object is an array of Footprint objects, where
   the Footprint objects may be of any Footprint Type other than
   footprintunion.

2.2.2.  CDNI Metadata FootprintUnion Footprint Type Description

   The "footprintunion" data type specified in Section 2.2.1, is added
   to the data types listed as footprint types in section 4.2.2.2 of
   [RFC8006].

   Below is an example using a footprint object of type "footprintunion"
   combining both IPv4 and IPv6 client addresses.

   {
     "capabilities": [
       {
         "capability-type": <CDNI capability object type>,
         "capability-value": <CDNI capability object>,
         "footprints": [
           {
             "footprint-type": "footprintunion",
             "footprint-value": [
               {
                 "footprint-type": "ipv4cidr",
                 "footprint-value": ["192.0.2.0/24"]
               },
               {
                 "footprint-type": "ipv6cidr",
                 "footprint-value": ["2001:db8::/32"]
               }
             ]
           }
         ]
       }
     ]
   }


   The footprint union also enables composing a countrycode and
   subdivisioncode based footprint objects.  In the example below we
   create a constraint covering autonomous system 64496 within the US
   (ISO [ISO3166-1] alpha-2 code "US") and the Nova-Scotia province of
   Canada (ISO [ISO3166-2] code "CA-NS").

             ]
           }
         ]
       }
     ]
   }


3.  ALTO Property Map Service Entity

   Section 6 of [RFC9241] describes how to represent footprint objects
   as entities in the ALTO property map.  The approach is to represent
   the "footprint-type" as an entity domain type of the ALTO entity, and
   the footprint value as its domain-specific identifier.  [RFC9241]
   further refers to the representation of footprint objects of types
   "asn" and "countrycode".  Here we extend this definition to the
   "subdivisioncode" footprint-type.

3.1.  SUBDIVISIONCODE Domain

   The SUBDIVISIONCODE domain associates property values that defines
   codes for the names of the principal subdivisions.

3.1.1.  Entity Domain Type

   The entity domain type of the SUBDIVISIONCODE domain is
   "subdivisioncode" (in lowercase).

Internet-Draft  Content Delivery Network Interconnection  September 2022


3.1.1.1.  Domain-Specific Entity Identifiers

   The entity identifier of an entity in a SUBDIVISIONCODE is encoded as
   an alpha-2 [ISO3166-1] Country Code, followed by a separator and up
   to three alphanumeric characters.

4.  IANA Considerations

4.1.  CDNI Metadata Footprint Types

   Section 7.2 of [RFC8006] creates the "CDNI Metadata Footprint Types"
   subregistry within the "Content Delivery Network Interconnection
   (CDNI) Parameters" registry.

   This document requests the registration of the two additional
   Footprint Types as defined in Section 2.2 and Section 2.1 :

5.  Security Considerations

   This specification is in accordance with the CDNI Metadata and the
   CDNI Request Routing: Footprint and Capabilities Semantics.  As such,
   it is subject to the security and privacy considerations as defined
   in Section 8 of [RFC8006] and in Section 7 of [RFC8008] respectively.
   More specifically, the use of "subdivisioncode" footprint type,
   introduces a higher level of granularity into the published dCDN
   Footprint.  Therefore, to meet confidentiality requirements, the use
   of transport-layer security mechanisms as specified in Section 7 of
   [RFC8008] is required.
