Abstract

   PANA (Protocol for carrying Authentication for Network Access) is a
   protocol for authenticating clients to the access network using IP
   based protocols.  The PANA protocol authenticates the client and also
   establishes a PANA security association between the PANA client and
   PANA authentication agent at the end of a successful authentication.
   This document discusses the details for establishing an IPsec
   security association using the PANA security association for enabling
   IPsec based access control.

1.0 Introduction

   PANA (Protocol for carrying Authentication for Network Access) is a
   protocol [PANA-PROT] for authenticating clients to the access network
   using IP based protocols.  The PANA protocol authenticates the client
   and also establishes a PANA security association between the PANA
   client (PaC) and PANA authentication agent (PAA) at the end of
   successful authentication. The PAA indicates the results of the
   authentication using the PANA-Bind-Request message wherein it can
   indicate the access control method enforced by the access network.
   The PANA protocol [PANA-PROT] does not discuss any details of IPsec
   [RFC2401] security association (SA) establishment, when IPsec is used
   for access control. This document discusses the details of
   establishing an IPsec security association between the PANA client
   and the enforcement point. The IPsec SA is established using IKE
   [RFC2409], which in turn uses the pre-shared key derived from the EAP
   authentication (AAA-Key). The IPsec SA used to protect the packet
   provides the assurance that the packet comes from the client that
   authenticated to the network.  Thus, the IPsec SA can be used for
   access control and specifically used to prevent the service theft
   mentioned in [PANA-THREATS]. The term "access control" in this
   document refers to the per-packet authentication provided by IPsec.
   IPsec is used to protect packets flowing between PaC and EP in both
   directions.

   Please refer to [PANAREQ] for terminology and definitions of terms
   used in this document. The PANA framework document [PANA-FRAME]

   describes the deployment scenarios for IPsec. The following picture
   illustrates what is being protected with IPsec. The different
   scenarios of PANA usage are described in the [PANAREQ]. When IPsec is
   used, scenarios 3 and 5 are supported as shown below. As shown in
   Figure 1, the Enforcement Point (EP), Access Router (AR) and the PANA
   authentication agent are co-located which is described as scenario 3
   in [PANAREQ].

   As show in Figure 2, only the AR and EP are co-located. The PAA is a
   separate node though located on the same link as the AR and EP. All
   of them are one IP hop away from the PaC. This is the same as
   scenario 5 described in [PANAREQ].

   The IPsec security association protects the traffic between the PaC
   and EP. In IPsec terms, the EP is a security gateway (therefore a
   router) and forwards packets coming from the PaC to other nodes.

   First, this document discusses some of the pre-requisites for IPsec
   SA establishment. Next, it gives details on what should be

   communicated between the PAA and EP. Then, it gives the details of
   IKE exchange with IPsec packet formats and SPD entries. Finally, it
   discusses the dual stack operation.

2.0 Keywords

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2118].


3.0 Pre-requisites for IPsec SA establisment

   This document assumes that the following have already happened before
   the IKE exchange starts.

     1) The PaC) and PAA mutually authenticate each other using an EAP
        method that is able to derive a AAA-key [EAP-KEY].

     2) The PaC learns the IP address of the Enforcement point (EP)
        during the PANA exchange.

     3) The PaC learns that the network uses IPsec [RFC2401] for
        securing the link between the PaC and EP during the PANA
        exchange.

4.0 IP Address Configuration

   The IP address configuration is explained in [PANA-FRAME]. Some of
   the details relevant to IPsec are briefly repeated here for clarity.
   The PaC configures an IP address before the PANA protocol exchange
   begins. This address is called a pre-PANA address (PRPA). After a
   successful authentication, the client may have to configure a post-
   PANA address (POPA) for communication with other nodes, if PRPA is a
   local-use (e.g., link-local or private address) or a temporarily
   allocated IP address.

   The PRPA of the PaC may be a link-local address [IPV4-LINK] or a
   private address [RFC1918] or a routable address or an IPv6 link-local
   address or global address [RFC2462]. Please refer to [PANA-FRAME] for
   more details on how these addresses may be configured. The PaC would
   use the PRPA as the outer address of IPsec tunnel mode SA (IPsec-
   TOA). The PaC also needs to configure an inner address (IPsec-TIA).
   There are different ways to configure IPsec-TIA.

     1) Some IPv4 IPsec implementations are known to work properly when
        the same address is configured as both the IPsec-TIA and IPsec-
        TOA. When PRPA is a routable address, the PRPA may be used as
        both the IPsec-TIA and IPsec-TOA and POPA may not be configured.


<Parthasarathy>         Expires November 2005                [Page 4]


               PANA enabling IPsec based Access Control       May 2005


     2) In IPv4, an IPsec-TIA can be obtained via the configuration
        method available using DHCP over IPsec tunnels [RFC3456]. The
        minor difference from the original usage of [RFC3456] is that
        the IPsec-TOA does not need to be a routable address when
        [RFC3456] is used between the PaC and EP.

     3) When IKEv2 [IKEV2] is used for security association negotiation,
        the address configuration method available in [IKEV2] can be
        used for configuring the IPsec-TIA for both IPv4 and IPv6.

   There are other address configuration methods possible. They have
   some implementation issues, which are described in the Appendix A.

5.0 IKE Pre-shared key derivation

   If the network chooses IPsec to secure the link between the PaC and
   EP, the PAA should communicate the IKE pre-shared key (Pac-EP Master
   Key), Key-Id, the device identifier of the PaC, and the session-Id to
   the EP before the IKE exchange begins. Whenever the IKE pre-shared
   key changes due to re-authentication as described below, the new
   value is computed by the PAA and communicated to the EP with all the
   other parameters.

   The IKE exchange between the PaC and PAA is equivalent to the 4-way
   handshake in [IEEE80211i] following the EAP exchange. The IKE
   exchange establishes the IPsec SA similar to the pair-wise transient
   key (PTK) established in [IEEE80211i]. The IKE exchange provides both
   key confirmation and protected cipher-suite negotiation.

   The IKE pre-shared key is derived as follows.

   IKE Pre-shared Key = HMAC-SHA-1 (AAA-Key, "IKE-preshared key" |
                           Session ID | Key-ID | EP-address)

   The values have the following meaning:

   AAA-Key: A key derived by the peer and EAP server and transported to
   the authenticator [EAP-KEY].

   Session ID: The value as defined in the PANA protocol [PANA-PROT],
   identifies a particular session of a client.

   Key-ID: This identifies the AAA-Key within a given session [PANA-
   PROT]. During the lifetime of the PANA session, there could be
   multiple runs of EAP re-authentications. As EAP re-authentication
   changes the AAA-Key, Key-ID is used to identify the right AAA-Key.
   This is contained in the Key-ID AVP [PANA-PROT].



<Parthasarathy>         Expires November 2005                [Page 5]


               PANA enabling IPsec based Access Control       May 2005

   EP-address: This is the address of the enforcement point with which
   the IKE exchange is being performed. When the PAA is controlling
   multiple EPs, this provides a different pre-shared key for each of
   the EPs.

   The character "|" denotes concatenation as defined in [RFC2409].

   During EAP re-authentication, the AAA-Key changes. Whenever the AAA-
   Key changes, a new value of Key-ID is established between the PaC and
   PAA/EP as defined in [PANA-PROT]. If there is already an IKE SA or
   IPsec SA established, it MUST continue to be used till it expires. A
   change in the value of AAA-Key MUST NOT result in re-negotiating a
   new IKE SA or IPsec SA immediately. The IKE PSK continues to exist
   even after the AAA-Key from which it is derived expires. When the
   IPsec SA expires, a new IPsec SA is negotiated without negotiating a
   new IKE SA. When the IKE SA expires, a new IKE PSK is derived from
   the latest AAA-key and used in negotiating the IKE SA and IPsec SA.
   In case where two runs of EAP authentication (NAP/ISP) are performed
   during a single PANA authentication phase, a AAA-Key is derived from
   both authentications as specified in the [PANA-PROT].


6.0 IKE and IPsec details

   IKE [RFC2409] MUST be used for establishing the IPsec SA. The details
   specified in this document works with IKEv2 [IKEV2] as well as IKE.
   Any difference between them would be explicitly noted. PANA
   authenticates the client and network, and derives the keys to protect
   the traffic. Hence, manual keying cannot be used. If IKE is used,
   aggressive mode with pre-shared key MUST be supported. The PaC and EP
   SHOULD use the following value in the payload of the ID_KEY_ID to
   identify the pre-shared key.

           ID_KEY_ID data = (Session-Id | Key-Id)

   The Session-Id and Key-Id are the values contained in the data
   portion of the Session-Id and Key-Id AVP respectively [PANA-PROT].
   They are concatenated to form the content of ID_KEY_ID data. IP
   addresses cannot be used as identifier as the same PaC or different
   PaC may use the same IP address across a PANA session. For the same
   reason, main mode of IKE cannot be used, as it requires addresses to
   be used as identifiers.

   If IKE is used, a quick mode exchange is performed to establish an
   ESP tunnel mode IPsec SA for protecting the traffic between the PaC
   and EP. In IKEv2, the initial exchange (IKE_SA_INIT and IKE_AUTH)
   creates the IPsec SA also. The identities (traffic selectors in
   IKEv2) used during Phase 2 are explained in the next section. As
   mentioned in section 4.0, an address (POPA) may also have to be


<Parthasarathy>         Expires November 2005                [Page 6]


               PANA enabling IPsec based Access Control       May 2005

   configured. The address configuration method to be used by the PaC is
   indicated in the PANA-Bind-Request message at the end of the
   successful PANA authentication. The PaC chooses the appropriate
   method and replies back in PANA-Bind-Answer message.

7.0 Packet Formats

   Following acronyms are used throughout this document.

   PAC-TIA denotes the IPsec-TIA used by the PaC. PAC-TIA may be set to
   a PRPA when the same PRPA is used as the IPsec-TIA and IPsec-TOA on
   the PaC. Otherwise, PAC-TIA is set to the POPA.

   PAC-TOA denotes the IPsec-TOA used by the PaC.

   EP-ADDR denotes the address of the EP.

   The node with which the PaC is communicating is denoted by END-ADDR.

   Following is the IPv4 packet format on the wire for packets sent from
   the PaC to the EP:

         IPv4 header      (source = PAC-TOA,
                           destination = EP-ADDR)
         ESP  header
         IPv4 header      (source = PAC-TIA,
                           destination = END-ADDR)

   Following is the IPv6 packet format on the wire for packets sent from
   the PaC to the EP:

         IPv6 header      (source = PAC-TOA,
                           destination = EP-ADDR)
         ESP  header
         IPv6 header      (source = PAC-TIA,
                           destination = END-ADDR)

   Following is the IPv4 packet format on the wire for packets sent from
   the EP to the PaC:

         IPv4 header      (source = EP-ADDR,
                           destination = PAC-TOA)
         ESP  header
         IPv4 header      (source = END-ADDR,
                           destination = PAC-TIA)

   Following is the IPv6 packet format on the wire for packets sent from
   the EP to the PaC:

               PANA enabling IPsec based Access Control       May 2005

         IPv6 header      (source = EP-ADDR,
                           destination = PAC-TOA)
         ESP  header
         IPv6 header      (source = END-ADDR,
                           destination = PAC-TIA)

8.0 IPsec SPD entries

   The SPD entries for IPv4 and IPv6 are specified separately as they
   are different. All the SPD entries described below are dynamically
   created. When the same address is used as IPsec-TIA and IPsec-TOA,
   the EP can add the entry to the SPD before the IKE exchange starts,
   as it knows the address a priori. When IKEv2 [IKEV2] or [RFC3456] is
   used for address configuration, the SPD entry cannot be created until
   the IPsec SA is successfully negotiated as the address is not known a
   priori. This is very similar to the road warrior case described in
   [IPSEC-BIS]. In this case, an SPD entry with a name selector is used
   and when the IPsec SA is successfully negotiated, a new SPD entry is
   created with the appropriate addresses. The name used here could be
   the contents of ID_KEY_ID payload. The SPD entries shown below are
   the entries that are added after the successful IPsec SA negotiation.

   In environments where the PaC is a router, the IPsec-TIA can be a
   range of addresses (prefix) instead of a single host address. The PaC
   acts like a security gateway in this case establishing the IPsec SA
   with another security gateway (EP). This scenario is supported by
   [RFC2401] and [IPSEC-BIS]. It is assumed that the PaC obtains the
   prefix through other mechanisms not defined in this document. When
   the IPsec SA is negotiated, the prefix is carried in the traffic
   selectors.

   The SPD entries shown here affect the flow of data traffic, which
   includes neighbor discovery messages for IPv6. The SPD entries in the
   PaC protect all the traffic with source address set to IPsec-TIA.
   When IPsec-TIA and IPsec-TOA are the same (as discussed in section
   4.0), the PANA traffic also gets protected with IPsec. The PANA
   traffic destined to the PAA from the PaC is forwarded to PAA after
   decrementing the TTL in the IP header. The PAA would drop the packet
   if the TTL is not 255. Hence, we need explicit entries to bypass
   IPsec protection for PANA traffic on PaC. This may not be needed
   always for traffic going from PAA to PaC. If PAA and EP are not co-
   located, PAA would send traffic directly to PaC without going through
   EP. Hence, EP does not need to have SPD entries to bypass IPsec in
   this case. If PAA and EP are co-located, the PANA packets will be
   protected with IPsec only if the IPsec-TIA and IPsec-TOA are same.
   Hence, we need explicit entries to bypass IPsec protection when PAA
   and EP are co-located.

      If source_port = PANA_PORT OR dest_port = PANA_PORT

               PANA enabling IPsec based Access Control       May 2005

          THEN BYPASS

   PANA_PORT is the IANA assigned (TBD) PANA protocol number [PANA-
   PROT]. There may be other protocols that expect the TTL to be 255
   whose SPD entries are not shown here. Also, when the PaC is using
   IPsec for remote access, there may be additional SPD entries and
   IPsec security associations, which are not discussed in this
   document.

              outer source = PAC-TOA
              outer destination = EP-ADDR

   During the IPsec SA setup, the PaC uses PAC-TIA as its phase 2
   identity (IDci) and EP uses ID_IPV4_ADDR_RANGE or ID_IPV4_ADDR_SUBNET
   as its phase 2 identity. The starting address is zero IP address and
   the end address is all ones for ID_IPV4_ADDR_RANGE. The starting
   address is zero IP address and the end address is all zeroes for
   ID_IPV4_ADDR_SUBNET.

8.2 IPv6 SPD entries

   The IPv6 SPD entries are slightly different from IPv4 to prevent the
   neighbor and router discovery [RFC2461] packets from being protected
   with IPsec. The first three entries of the following SPD entries
   bypass IPsec protection for neighbor and router discovery packets.
   The latest version of the IPsec [IPSEC-BIS] document allows traffic
   selectors to be based on ICMPv6 type and code values. In that case,
   the first three entries can be based on ICMPv6 type and code values.

   Pac's SPD OUT:

             IF source = ::/128  & destination = any
              THEN BYPASS

             IF source = fe80::/10 & destination = any
             THEN BYPASS

             IF source = any & destination = fe80::/10
              THEN BYPASS

   During the IPsec SA setup, the PaC uses PAC-TIA as its phase 2
   identity (IDci) and the EP uses ID_IPV6_ADDR_RANGE or
   ID_IPV6_ADDR_SUBNET as its phase 2 identity. The starting address is
   zero IP address and the end address is all ones for
   ID_IPV6_ADDR_RANGE. The starting address is zero IP address and the
   end address is all zeroes for ID_IPV6_ADDR_SUBNET.

9.0 Dual Stack Operation

   IKEv2 [IKEV2] can enable configuration of IPsec-TIA for both IPv4 and
   IPv6 TIAs by sending both IPv4 and IPv6 configuration attributes in
   the configuration request (CFG-REQUEST). This enables use of single
   IPsec tunnel mode SA for sending both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic.
   Therefore, IKEv2 is recommended for handling dual-stack PaCs where
   single execution of IKE is desired.

10.0 Security considerations

   This document discusses the use of IPsec for access control when PANA
   is used for authenticating the clients to the access network.

   The aggressive mode in IKE [RFC2409] is considered bad due to its DoS
   properties i.e., any attacker can bombard IKE aggressive mode packets
   making the EP perform heavy diffie-hellman calculations. As the
   ID_KEY_ID can be verified by the EP before doing the diffie-hellman
   calculation, it prevents random attacks. The attacker now needs to
   listen on the traffic between PaC and PAA to originate IKE requests
   with valid ID_KEY_ID.

   If the EP does not verify whether the PaC is authorized to use an IP
   address, it is possible for the PaC to steal the traffic destined to
   some other PaC. When IKEv2 [IKEV2] and [RFC3456] are used for address
   configuration, the address is assigned by the EP and hence this
   attack is not present in such cases. When the same address is used as
   both IPsec-TIA and IPsec-TOA, the EP creates the SPD entry with the
   appropriate address for the PaC and hence the address is verified
   implicitly by the virtue of successful IPsec SA negotiation.

   When IPv6 is used, the SPD entries bypass all link-local traffic
   without applying IPsec. This should not be a limitation as the link-
   local address is used only by link-local services e.g. neighbor and
   router discovery, which could use [SEND] to protect their traffic.
   Moreover, this limitation may not be there in the future if IPsec
   extends the SPD selectors to specify ICMP types.

15.0 Appendix A

   This section describes the alternate address configuration methods
   for Post-PANA address (POPA) and the issues associated with it. As
   mentioned in section 4, there are multiple ways by which the PaC may
   configure the POPA address. Only [IKEV2] and [RFC3456] address
   configuration methods were described in section 4. Other
   possibilities and the issues are as follows.

     1) Some IKEv1 implementations support IKEv1 MODECFG for configuring
        IP address. There is no RFC describing MODECFG feature of IKEv1.
        Also, there is not much information on its widespread support
        among the implementations. Hence, this document does not
        recommend it.

     2) The address may also be obtained using DHCP [RFC2131] [RFC3315]
        before the IKE exchange starts. Normally the implementations
        associate the address and other configuration information (e.g.,
        the default router address) with the interface on which the DHCP
        is performed. This can cause problems with implementations if
        they attempt to use an IP address that is configured via
        [RFC2131] [RFC3315] on the physical interface and use it as the
        IPsec-TIA on the IPsec tunnel interface. This may work without
        problems when the IPsec-TIA and IPsec-TOA are same as the IPv4
        PRPA that was obtained using DHCP, as the source address
        selection has to deal with just one address. But using an IPv4
        IPsec-TOA different than the IPsec-TIA on a single interface may
        cause source address selection problem, as there is more than
        one address to be dealt with. Similarly, an IPv6 address
        obtained and maintained through a physical link but used on a
        tunnel interface requires additional implementation
        considerations. Therefore, this document does not handle the
        case where DHCP is used to acquire an address for the IPsec-TIA
        that is different from the IPsec-TOA. Note that this case is
        different from the address configuration using [RFC3456], which
        also uses DHCP. When [RFC3456] is used, DHCP is run over the
        IPsec tunnel and the address (IPsec-TIA) is typically assigned


<Parthasarathy>         Expires November 2005               [Page 15]


               PANA enabling IPsec based Access Control       May 2005

        to the IPsec tunnel interface. The IPsec-TOA is assigned to the
        physical interface. As there is only one address on each
        interface, there are no address selection issues.

     3) The address may also be obtained using auto-configuration
        [RFC2461] including the temporary addresses described in
        [RFC3041]. The problem described above for DHCP applies to this
        also. The implementations would associate the auto-configured
        addresses and the default router with the interface on which the
        router advertisement was received. As we configure the SPD to
        bypass IPsec for router discovery and neighbor discovery
        messages, the address would be associated with the physical
        interface and not with the IPsec interface. There is also an
        additional issue, as the address configured by the PaC is not
        known to the EP. It needs to trust whatever PaC provides in its
        traffic selector during the IPsec SA negotiation. This leads to
        a DoS attack where the PaC can steal some other PaC's address,
        which cannot be prevented unless [SEND] is deployed.
