Abstract This document provides a problem statement, lists requirements and captures design aspects for a Geopriv Layer 7 Location Configuration Protocol L7 (LCP). This protocol aims to allow an end host to obtain location information, by value or by reference, from a Location Configuration Server (LCS) that is located in the access network. The obtained location information can then be used for a variety of different protocols and purposes. For example, it can be used as input to the Location-to-Service Translation Protocol (LoST) or to convey location within SIP to other entities. Table of Contents 1.

Introduction This document provides a problem statement, lists requirements and captures design aspects for a Geopriv Layer 7 Location Configuration Protocol L7 (LCP). The protocol has two purposes: o It is used to obtain location information (referred as "Location by Value" or LbyV) from a dedicated node, called the Location Configuration Server (LCS). o It enables the Target to obtain a reference to location information (referred as "Location by Reference" or LbyR). This reference can take the form of a subscription URI, such as a SIP presence URI, a HTTP/HTTPS URI, or another URI. The requirements related to the task of obtaining a LbyR are described in a separate document, see . The need for these two functions can be derived from the scenarios presented in Section 3. For this document we assume that the GEOPRIV Layer 7 LCP runs between the end host (i.e., the Target in  terminology) acting as the LCP client and the Location Configuration Server acting as an LCP server. This document is structured as follows. Section 4 discusses the challenge of discovering the LCS in the access network. Section 5 compares different types of identifiers that can be used to retrieve location information. A list of requirements for the L7 LCP can be found in Section 6. This document does not describe how the access network provider determines the location of the end host since this is largely a matter of the capabilities of specific link layer technologies or certain deployment environments. 2. Terminology In this document, the key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 , with the qualification that unless otherwise stated these words apply to the design of the GEOPRIV Layer 7 Location Configuration Protocol. The term Location Configuration Server (LCS) refers to an entity capable of determining the location of the Targetan end point and of deliveringproviding that location information, a reference to it, or bot)both via the Location Configuration Protocol (LCP) to the Target viarequesting party, in most cases to the L7 LCP.end point itself (or to an authorized entity that acts on behalf of it). This document also uses terminology from  and . 3. Scenarios This section describes a few network scenarios where the L7 LCP may be used. Note that this section does not aim to exhaustively list all possible deployment environments. Instead we focus on the following environments: o DSL/Cable networks, WiMax-like fixed access o Airport, City, Campus Wireless Networks, such as 802.11a/b/g, 802.16e/Wimax o 3G networks o Enterprise networks We illustrate a few examples below. 3.1. Fixed Wired Environment Figure 1 shows a DSL network scenario with the Access Network Provider and the customer premises. The Access Network Provider operates link and network layer devices (represented as Node) and the LCS. +---------------------------+ | | | Access Network Provider | | | | +--------+ | | | Node | | | +--------+ +----------+ | | | | | LCS | | | | +---| | | | | +----------+ | | | | +-------+-------------------+ | Wired Network <----------------> Access Network Provider demarc | +-------+-------------------+ | | | | +-------------+ | | | NTE | | | +-------------+ | | | | | | | | +--------------+ | | | Device with | Home | | | NAPT and | Router | | | DHCP server | | | +--------------+ | | | | | | | | +------+ | | | End | | | | Host | | | +------+ | | | |Customer Premises Network | | | +---------------------------+ Figure 1: DSL Scenario The customer premises consists of a router with a Network Address Translator with Port Address Translation (NAPT) and a DHCP server as used in most Customer Premises Networks (CPN) and the Network Termination Equipment (NTE) where Layer 1 and sometimes Layer 2 protocols are terminated. The router in the home network (e.g., broadband router, cable or DSL router) typically runs a NAPT and a DHCP server. The NTE is a legacy device and in many cases cannot be modified for the purpose of delivering location information to the end host. The same is true of the device with the NAPT and DHCP server. It is possible for the NTE and the home router to physically be in the same box, or for there to be no home router, or for the NTE and end host to be in the same physical box (with no home router). An example of this last case is where Ethernet service is delivered to customers' homes, and the Ethernet NIC in their PC serves as the NTE. Current Customer Premises Network (CPN) deployments frequently show the following characteristics: 1. CPE = Single PC 1. with Ethernet NIC (PPPoE or DHCP on PC); there may be a bridged DSL or cable modem as NTE, or the Ethernet NIC might be the NTE 2. with USB DSL or cable modem [PPPoA, PPPoE, or DHCP on PC] Note that the device with NAPT and DHCP of Figure 1 is not present in such a scenario. 2. One or more hosts with at least one router (DHCP Client or PPPoE, DHCP server in router; VoIP can be soft client on PC, stand-alone VoIP device, or Analog Terminal Adaptor (ATA) function embedded in router) 1. combined router and NTE 2. separate router with NTE in bridged mode 3. separate router with NTE (NTE/router does PPPoE or DHCP to WAN, router provides DHCP server for hosts in LAN; double NAT) The majority of fixed access broadband customers use a router. The placement of the VoIP client is mentioned to describe what sorts of hosts may need to be able to request location information. Soft clients on PCs are frequently not launched until long after bootstrap is complete, and are not able to control any options that may be specified during bootstrap. They also cannot control whether a VPN client is running on the end host. 3.2. Moving Network An example of a moving network is a "WIMAX-like fixed wireless" scenario that is offered in several cities, like New Orleans, Biloxi, etc., where much of the communications infrastructure was destroyed due to a natural disaster. The customer-side antenna for this service is rather small (about the size of a mass market paperback book) and can be run off battery power. The output of this little antenna is a RJ-45 Ethernet jack. A laptop can be plugged into this Ethernet jack. The user would then run a PPPoE client to connect to the network. Once the network connection is established, the user can run a SIP client on the laptop. The network-side antenna is, for example, connected through ATM to the core network, and from there to the same BRASs that serve regular DSL customers. These Broadband Remote Access Servers (BRASs) terminate the PPPoE sessions, just like they do for regular DSL. The laptop and SIP client are, in this case, unaware that they are "mobile". All they see is an Ethernet connection, and the IP address they get from PPPoE does not change over the coverage area. Only the user and the network are aware of the laptop's mobility. Further examples of moving networks can be found in busses, trains, and airplanes. Figure 2 shows an example topology for a moving network. +--------------------------+ | Wireless | | Access Network Provider | | | | +----------+| | +-------+ LCS || | | | || | +---+----+ +----------+| | | Node | | | | | | | +---+----+ | | | | +------+-------------------+ | Wireless Interface | +------+-------------------+ | | Moving Network | | +---+----+ | | | NTE | +--------+ | | | +---+ Host | | | +-+-----++ | B | | | | \ +--------+ | | | \ | |+---+----+ \ +---+----+ | || Host | \ | Host | | || A | \+ B | | |+--------+ +--------+ | +--------------------------+ Figure 2: Moving Network 3.3. Wireless Access Figure 3 shows a wireless access network where a moving end host obtains location information or references to location information from the LCS. The access equipment uses, in many cases, link layer devices. Figure 3 represents a hotspot network found, for example, in hotels, airports, and coffee shops. For editorial reasons we only describe a single access point and do not depict how the LCS obtains location information since this is very deployment specific. +--------------------------+ | Access Network Provider | | | | +----------+| | +-------| LCLCS || | | | || | +--------+ +----------+| | | Access | | | | Point | | | +--------+ | | | | +------+-------------------+ | +------+ | End | | Host | +------+ Figure 3: Wireless Access Scenario 4. Discovery of the Location Configuration Server When a Target wants to retrieve location information from the LCS it first needs to discover it. Based on the problem statement of determining the location of the Target, which is known best by entities close to the Target itself, we assume that the LCS is located in the access network. Several procedures have been investigated that aim to discoverydiscover the LCS in such an access network. DHCP-based Discovery: In some environments the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) might be a good choice for discovering the FQDN or the IP address of the LCS. In environments where DHCP can be used it is also possible to use the already defined location extensions. In environments with legacy devices, such as the one shown in Section 3.1, a DHCP based discovery solution may not be possible. DNS-based Discovery: With this idea the end host obtains its public IP address (e.g., via STUN ) in order to obtain its domain name (via the usual reverse DNS lookup). Then, the SRV or NAPTR record for that domain is retrieved. This relies on the user's public IP address having a DNS entry. Redirect Rule: A redirect rule at a device in the access network, for example at the AAA client, will be used to redirect the L7 LCP signalling messages (destined to a specific port) to the LCS. The end host could then discover the LCS by sending a packet to almost any address (as long it is not in the user's home network behind a NAT). The packet would be redirected to the respective LCS being configured. The same procedure is used by captive portals whereby any HTTP traffic is intercepted and redirected. Multicast Query: An end node could also discover a LCS by sending a multicast request to a well-known address. An example of such a mechanism is multicast DNS (see  and ). The LCS discovery procedure raises deployment and security issues. When an end host discovers a LCS it must be ensured that 1. it does not talk to a man-in-the-middle, and 2. that the discovered entity is indeed an authorized LCS. 5. Identifier for Location Determination The LCS returns location information to the end host when it receives a request. Some form of identifier is therefore needed to allow the LCS to retrieve the Target's current location (or a good approximation of it) from a database. The chosen identifier needs to have the following properties: Ability for Target to learn or know the identifier: The Target MUST know or MUST be able to learn the identifier (explicitly or implicitly) in order to send it to the LCS. Implicitly refers to the situation where a device along the path between the end host and the LCS modifies the identifier, as it is done by a NAT when an IP address based identifier is used. Ability to use the identifier for location determination: The LCS MUST be able to use the identifier (directly or indirectly) for location determination. Indirectly refers to the case where the LCS uses other identifiers internally for location determination, in addition to the one provided by the Target. Security properties of the identifier: Misuse needs to be minimized whereby off-path adversary MUST NOT be able to obtain location information of other Targets. A on- path adversary in the same subnet SHOULD NOT be able to spoof the identifier of another Target in the same subnet. The following list discusses frequently mentioned identifiers and their properties: Host MAC Address: The Target's MAC address is known to the end host, but not carried over an IP hop and therefore not accessible to the LCS in most deployment environments (unless carried in the L7 LCP itself). ATM VCI/VPI: The VPI/VCI is generally only seen by the DSL modem. Almost all routers in the US use 1 of 2 VPI/VCI value pairs: 0/35 and 8/35. This VC is terminated at the DSLAM, which uses a different VPI/VCI (per end customer) to connect to the ATM switch. Only the network provider is able to map VPI/VCI values through its network. With the arrival of VDSL, ATM will slowly be phased out in favor of Ethernet. Switch/Port Number: This identifier is available only in certain networks, such as enterprise networks, typically available via proprietary protocols like CDP or, in the future, 802.1ab. Cell ID: This identifier is available in cellular data networks and the cell ID may not be visible to the end host. Host Identifier: The Host Identifier introduced by the Host Identity Protocol  allows identification of a particular host. Unfortunately, the network can only use this identifier for location determination if the operator already stores an mapping of host identities to location information. Furthermore, there is a deployment problem since the host identities are not used in todays networks. Cryptographically Generated Address (CGA): The concept of a Cryptographically Generated Address (CGA) was introduced by . The basic idea is to put the truncated hash of a public key into the interface identifier part of an IPv6 address. In addition to the properties of an IP address it allows a proof of ownership. Hence, a return routability check can be omitted. It is only available for IPv6 addresses. Network Access Identifiers: A Network Access Identifier  is used during the network access authentication procedure, for example in RADIUS  and Diameter . In DSL networks the user credentials are, in many cases, only known by the home router and not configured at the Target itself. To the network, the authenticated user identity is only available if a network access authentication procedure is executed. In case of roaming the user's identity might not be available to the access network since security protocols might offer user identity confidentiality and thereby hiding the real identity of the user allowing the access network to only see a pseudonym or a randomized string. Unique Client Identifier The DSL Forum has defined that all devices that expect to be managed by the TR-069 interface be able to generate an identifier as described in Section 3.4.4 of the TR-069v2 DSL Forum document. It also has a requirement that routers that use DHCP to the WAN use RFC 4361  to provide the DHCP server with a unique client identifier. This identifier is, however, not visible to the Target when legacy NTE device are used. IP Address: The Target's IP address may be used for location determination. This IP address is not visible to the LCS if the end host is behind one or multiple NATs. This may not be a problem since the location of a host that is located behind a NAT cannot be determined by the access network. The LCS would in this case only see the public IP address of the NAT binding allocated by the NAT, which is the expected behavior. The property of the IP address for a return routability check is attractive to return location information only to the address that submitted the request. If an adversary wants to learn the location of a Target (as identified by a particular IP address) then it does not see the response message (unless he is on the subnetwork or at a router along the path towards the LCS). On a shared medium an adversary could ask for location information of another Target. The adversary would be able to see the response message since it is sniffing on the shared medium unless security mechanisms (suchmechanisms, such as link layer encryption) isencryption, are in place. With a network deployment as shown in Section 3.1 with multiple hosts in the Customer Premise being behind a NAT the LCS is unable to differentiate the individual end points. For WLAN deployments as found in hotels, as shown in Section 3.3, it is possible for an adversary to eavesdrop data traffic and subsequently to spoof the IP address in a query to the LCS to learn more detailed location information (e.g., specific room numbers). Such an attack might, for example, compromise the privacy of hotel guests. 6. Requirements The following requirements and assumptions have been identified: Requirement L7-1: Identifier Choice The L7 LCP MUST be able to carry different identifiers or MUST define an identifier that is mandatory to implement. Regarding the latter aspect, such an identifier is only appropriate if it is from the same realm as the one for which the location information service maintains identifier to location mapping. Requirement L7-2: Mobility Support The L7 LCP MUST support a broad range of mobility from devices that can only move between reboots, to devices that can change attachment points with the impact that their IP address is changed, to devices that do not change their IP address while roaming, to devices that continuously move by being attached to the same network attachment point. Requirement L7-3: Layer 7 and Layer 2/3 Provider Relationship The design of the L7 LCP MUST NOT assume a business or trust relationship between the VSP and the ISP/ASP. Requirements for resolving a reference to location information are not discussed in this document. Requirement L7-4: Layer 2 and Layer 3 Provider Relationship The design of the L7 LCP MUST assume that there is a trust and business relationship between the L2 and the L3 provider. The L3 provider operates the LCS and needs to obtain location information from the L2 provider since this one is closest to the end host. If the L2 and L3 provider for the same host are different entities, they cooperate for the purposes needed to determine end system locations. Requirement L7-5: Legacy Device Considerations The design of the L7 LCP MUST consider legacy devices, such as residential NAT devices and NTEs in an DSL environment, that cannot be upgraded to support additional protocols, for example, to pass additional information towards the Target. Requirement L7-6: VPN Awareness The design of the L7 LCP MUST assume that at least one end of a VPN is aware of the VPN functionality. In an enterprise scenario, the enterprise side will provide the LCS used by the client and can thereby detect whether the LCS request was initiated through a VPN tunnel. Requirement L7-7: Network Access Authentication The design of the L7 LCP MUST NOT assume prior network access authentication. Requirement L7-8: Network Topology Unawareness The design of the L7 LCP MUST NOT assume end systems being aware of the access network topology. End systems are, however, able to determine their public IP address(es) via mechanisms, such as STUN  or NSIS NATFW NSLP  . Requirement L7-9: Discovery Mechanism The L7 LCP MUST define a singlemandatory-to-implement LCS discovery mechanism. 7.
