   Distributed Denial-of-Service Open Threat Signaling (DOTS) Signal
     Channel Configuration Attributes for Robust Block Transmission
                    draft-ietf-dots-robust-blocks-03

Abstract

   This document specifies new DOTS signal channel configuration
   parameters that are negotiated between DOTS peers to enable the use
   of Q-Block1 and Q-Block2 CoAP Options.  These options enable robust
   and faster transmission rates for large amounts of data with less
   packet interchanges as well as supporting faster recovery should any
   of the blocks get lost in transmission.

   This document defines a YANG data model for representing these new
   DOTS signal channel configuration parameters.

1.  Introduction

   The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) [RFC7252], although
   inspired by HTTP, was designed to use UDP instead of TCP.  The
   message layer of CoAP over UDP includes support for reliable
   delivery, simple congestion control, and flow control.  The block-
   wise transfer [RFC7959] introduced the CoAP Block1 and Block2 Options
   to handle data records that cannot fit in a single IP packet, so not
   having to rely on IP fragmentation.  The block-wise transfer was
   further updated by [RFC8323] for use over TCP, TLS, and WebSockets.

   The CoAP Block1 and Block2 Options work well in environments where
   there are no or minimal packet losses.  These options operate
   synchronously where each individual block has to be requested and can
   only ask for (or send) the next block when the request for the
   previous block has completed.  Packet, and hence block transmission
   rate, is controlled by Round Trip Times (RTTs).

Internet-Draft       DOTS Robust Block Transmission        February 2022


   There is a requirement for these blocks of data to be transmitted at
   higher rates under network conditions where there may be asymmetrical
   transient packet loss (i.e., responses may get dropped).  An example
   is when a network is subject to a Distributed Denial of Service
   (DDoS) attack and there is a need for DDoS mitigation agents relying
   upon CoAP to communicate with each other (e.g.,
   [I-D.ietf-dots-telemetry]).  As a reminder, [RFC7959] recommends the
   use of Confirmable (CON) responses to handle potential packet loss.
   However, such a recommendation does not work with a flooded pipe DDoS
   situation because the returning ACK packets may not get through.

   The block-wise transfer specified in [RFC7959] covers the general
   case, but falls short in situations where packet loss is highly
   asymmetrical.  The mechanism specified in [I-D.ietf-core-new-block]
   provides roughly similar features to the Block1/Block2 Options, but
   provides additional properties that are tailored towards the intended
   DOTS transmission.  Concretely, [I-D.ietf-core-new-block] primarily
   targets applications such as DDoS Open Threat Signaling (DOTS) that
   can't use Confirmable responses to handle potential packet loss and
   that support application-specific mechanisms to assess whether the
   remote peer is able to handle the messages sent by a CoAP endpoint
   (e.g., DOTS heartbeats in Section 4.7 of [RFC9132]).

   [I-D.ietf-core-new-block] includes guards to prevent a CoAP agent
   from overloading the network by adopting an aggressive sending rate.
   These guards are followed in addition to the existing CoAP congestion
   control as specified in Section 4.7 of [RFC7252] (mainly,
   PROBING_RATE).  Table 1 lists the additional CoAP attributes that are
   used for the guards (Section 7.2 of [I-D.ietf-core-new-block]).

                +---------------------+-------------------+
                | Parameter Name      |     Default Value |
                +=====================+===================+
                | MAX_PAYLOADS        |                10 |
                | NON_MAX_RETRANSMIT  |                 4 |
                | NON_TIMEOUT         |               2 s |
                | NON_RECEIVE_TIMEOUT |               4 s |
                | NON_PROBING_WAIT    | between 247-248 s |
                | NON_PARTIAL_TIMEOUT |             247 s |
                +---------------------+-------------------+

                Table 1: Congestion Control Parameters

   PROBING_RATE and other transmission parameters are negotiated between
   DOTS peers as discussed in Section 4.5.2 of [RFC9132].  Nevertheless,
   the attributes listed in Table 1 are not supported.  This document
   defines new DOTS signal channel attributes that are used to customize
   the configuration of robust block transmission in a DOTS context.

2.  Terminology

   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.

   Readers should be familiar with the terms and concepts defined in
   [RFC7252] and [RFC8612].

   The terms "payload" and "body" are defined in [RFC7959].  The term
   "payload" is thus used for the content of a single CoAP message
   (i.e., a single block being transferred), while the term "body" is
   used for the entire resource representation that is being transferred
   in a block-wise fashion.

   The meaning of the symbols in YANG tree diagrams are defined in
   [RFC8340] and [RFC8791].

3.  DOTS Attributes for Robust Block Transmission

   Section 7.2 of [I-D.ietf-core-new-block] defines the following
   attributes that are used for congestion control purposes:

   MAX_PAYLOADS:  is the maximum number of payloads that can be
      transmitted at any one time.

   NON_MAX_RETRANSMIT:  is the maximum number of times a request for the
      retransmission of missing payloads can occur without a response
      from the remote peer.  By default, NON_MAX_RETRANSMIT has the same
      value as MAX_RETRANSMIT (Section 4.8 of [RFC7252]).

   NON_TIMEOUT:  is the maximum period of delay between sending sets of
      MAX_PAYLOADS payloads for the same body.  NON_TIMEOUT has the same
      value as ACK_TIMEOUT (Section 4.8 of [RFC7252]).

   NON_RECEIVE_TIMEOUT:  is the maximum time to wait for a missing
      payload before requesting retransmission.  By default,
      NON_RECEIVE_TIMEOUT has a value of twice NON_TIMEOUT.

   NON_PROBING_WAIT:  is used to limit the potential wait needed
      calculated when using PROBING_WAIT.

   NON_PARTIAL_TIMEOUT:  is used for expiring partially received bodies.

Internet-Draft       DOTS Robust Block Transmission        February 2022


   These attributes are used together with PROBING_RATE parameter which
   in CoAP indicates the average data rate that must not be exceeded by
   a CoAP endpoint in sending to a peer endpoint that does not respond.
   The single body of blocks will be subjected to PROBING_RATE
   (Section 4.7 of [RFC7252]), not the individual packets.  If the wait
   time between sending bodies that are not being responded to
   calculated using on PROBING_RATE exceeds NON_PROBING_WAIT, then the
   gap time is limited to NON_PROBING_WAIT.

   This document augments the "ietf-dots-signal-channel" DOTS signal
   YANG module defined in Section 5.3 of [RFC9132] with the following
   additional attributes that can be negotiated between DOTS peers to
   enable robust and faster transmission:

   max-payloads:  This attribute echoes the MAX_PAYLOADS parameter in
      [I-D.ietf-core-new-block].

      This is an optional attribute.

   non-max-retransmit:  This attribute echoes the NON_MAX_RETRANSMIT
      parameter in [I-D.ietf-core-new-block].  The default value of this
      attribute is 'max-retransmit'.  Note that DOTS uses a default
      value of '3' instead of '4' used for the generic CoAP use
      (Section 4.5.2 of [RFC9132]) for max-transmit.

      This is an optional attribute.

   non-timeout:  This attribute echoes the NON_TIMEOUT parameter in
      [I-D.ietf-core-new-block].  The default value of this attribute is
      'ack-timeout'.

      This is an optional attribute.

   non-receive-timeout:  This attribute echoes the NON_RECEIVE_TIMEOUT
      parameter in [I-D.ietf-core-new-block].  The default value of this
      attribute is twice 'non-timeout'.

      This is an optional attribute.

   non-probing-wait:  This attribute echoes the NON_PROBING_WAIT
      parameter in [I-D.ietf-core-new-block].  The default value of this
      attribute is 247s.

      This is an optional attribute.

   non-partial-timeout:  This attribute echoes the NON_PARTIAL_TIMEOUT
      parameter in [I-D.ietf-core-new-block].  The default value of this
      attribute is 274s.

   These attributes are mapped to CBOR types as specified in Section 4
   and Section 6 of [RFC9132].

   DOTS clients follow the procedure specified in Section 4.5 of
   [RFC9132] to negotiate, configure, and retrieve the DOTS signal
   channel session behavior (including Q-Block parameters) with DOTS
   peers.

   Implementation Note 1:  'non-probing-wait' ideally should be left
      having some jitter and so should not be hard-coded with an
      explicit value.  It is suggested to use a base value (using
      NON_TIMEOUT instead of NON_TIMEOUT_RANDOM) and, then, the jitter
      (ACK_RANDOM_FACTOR - 1) is added to each time the value is
      checked.

   Implementation Note 2:  If any of the signal channel session
      configuration parameters is updated, the 'non-probing-wait' and
      'non-partial-timeout' values should be recalculated according to
      the definition algorithms in Section 7.2 of
      [I-D.ietf-core-new-block].

   An example of PUT message to configure Q-Block parameters is depicted
   in Figure 2.  In this example, the 'max-payloads' attribute is set to
   '15' when no mitigation is active, while it is set to '10' when a
   mitigation is active.  The same value is used for 'non-max-
   retransmit', 'non-timeout', 'non-receive-timeout', 'non-probing-
   wait', and "non-partial-wait" in both idle and mitigation times.  The
   meaning of other attributes is detailed in Section 4.5 of [RFC9132].

      Figure 2: Example of PUT to Convey the Configuration Parameters


   The payload of the message depicted in Figure 2 is CBOR-encoded as
   indicated by the Content-Format set to "application/dots+cbor"
   (Section 10.3 of [RFC9132]).  However, and for the sake of better
   readability, the example uses JSON encoding of YANG-modeled data
   following the mapping table in Section 4 and Section 6 of [RFC9132]:
   use the JSON names and types defined in Section 4.  These conventions
   are inherited from [RFC9132].

4.  YANG/JSON Mapping Parameters to CBOR

   The YANG/JSON mapping parameters to CBOR are listed in Table 2.

   *  Note: Implementers must check that the mapping output provided by
      their YANG-to-CBOR encoding schemes is aligned with the content of
      Table 2.

   CoAP-specific security considerations are discussed in Section 11 of
   [I-D.ietf-core-new-block].

   This document defines YANG data structures that are meant to be used
   as an abstract representation in DOTS signal channel messages.  As
   such, the "ietf-dots-robust-trans" module (Section 5) does not
   introduce any new vulnerabilities beyond those specified above.
