June 2011 Understanding Apple's Back to My Mac (BTMM) Service
This document describes the implementation of Apple Inc.'s Back to My
Mac (BTMM) service. BTMM provides network connectivity between
devices so that a user can perform file sharing and screen sharing
among multiple computers at home, at work, or on the road. The
implementation of BTMM addresses the issues of single sign-on
authentication, secure data communication, service discovery, and
end-to-end connectivity in the face of Network Address Translators
(NATs) and mobility of devices.

Apple Inc.'s Back to My Mac (BTMM) service was first shipped with MAC
OS X 10.5 release in October 2007; since then, it has been widely
used. BTMM provides an integrated solution to host mobility support,
NAT traversal, and secure end-to-end data delivery through a
combination of several existing protocols and software tools instead
of designing new protocols. Note that we generally refer to Network
Address Port Translation (NAPT) as NAT in this document. This
document describes the implementation of BTMM and describes how BTMM
works in MAC OS X version 10.5.x; BTMM continues to evolve over time.
BTMM provides secure transport connections among a set of devices
that may be located over a dynamic and heterogeneous network
environment. Independent from whether a user is traveling and
accessing the Internet via airport WiFi or staying at home behind a
NAT, BTMM allows the user to connect to any Mac hosts with a click,
after which the user can share files with remote computers or control
the remote host through screen sharing. When a user changes
locations and thus also changes the IP address of his computer (e.g.,
roaming around with a laptop and receiving dynamically allocated IP
address), BTMM provides a means for the roaming host to update its
reachability information to keep it reachable by the user's other Mac
devices. BTMM maintains end-to-end transport connections in the face
of host IP address changes through the use of unique host
identifiers. It also provides a means to reach devices behind a NAT.
BTMM achieves the above functions mainly by integrating a set of
existing protocols and software tools. It uses DNS-based Service
Discovery [DNS-SD] to announce host reachability information, dynamic
DNS update [RFC2136] to refresh the DNS resource records (RRs) when a
host detects network changes, and DNS Long-Lived Queries (LLQs)
[DNS-LLQ] to notify hosts immediately when the answers to their
earlier DNS queries have changed. BTMM uses the IPv6 Unique Local
Address (ULA) [RFC4193] as the host identifier and employs the NAT
Port Mapping Protocol (PMP) [NAT-PMP] to assist NAT traversal. It
uses Kerberos [RFC4120] for end-to-end authentication and uses IPsec
[RFC4301] to secure data communications between two end hosts.
2. An Overview of Back to My Mac
To keep an established TCP connection running while either of the two
end hosts may change its IP address requires that the connection use
unique and stable identifiers that do not change with the addresses,
and that a mapping service exists between these stable identifiers
and dynamically changing IP addresses. BTMM uses DNS to provide this
mapping service. Figure 1 provides a sketch of the basic components
in the BTMM implementation.

Apple Inc. operates a DNS domain called members.me.com and provides
DNS name resolution services for all the subdomains underneath.
Every BTMM user is assigned a DNS subdomain under members.me.com,
e.g., alice.members.me.com. The user then assigns a DNS name for
each of her computers, e.g., myMacPro.alice.members.me.com. The
reachability information of each of the user's hosts is encoded in
DNS resource records and published in the DNS. For example, if the
host myMacPro.alice.members.me.com has a public IPv4 address P, P
represents the reachability information to the host. On the other
hand, if the host is behind a NAT, its reachability information is
composed of the public IP address of the NAT box and the port number
opened on the NAT to reach the internal host. In this case, both the
public IP address of the NAT box and the port number are encoded into
DNS using DNS SRV records [RFC2782], as we explain in the next
section. When a user logs in from a host M, M starts updating the
DNS server about its reachability information. If the user has
multiple hosts, M also sets up LLQs with the DNS server for her other
hosts, so that the DNS server can push any reachability changes of
these other hosts to M immediately.
To obtain a unique identifier for each host, BTMM automatically
generates an IPv6 ULA for each host as its identifier at machine boot
time. This design choice allows BTMM to reuse all the existing code
of applications and protocols that already support IPv6. To ensure
end-to-end data security, BTMM leverages the existing IPsec to
protect the communications and Kerberos to perform end-to-end
BTMM provides an IPv6 socket interface to user applications. It then
wraps the IPv6 packets with IPsec Encapsulating Security Payload
(ESP) [RFC4303] and encapsulates the packets in a UDP/IP tunnel, as
illustrated in Figure 2. Note that this is the case even when both
ends have public IPv4 addresses.

The following sections describe each of the basic components in BTMM.
Since this document is intended to be an informal description of the
BTMM implementation, it does not include all the details (e.g.,
packet format, error code, etc) of each component.
3. Encoding Host Information in DNS Resource Records
For each host, BTMM encodes into DNS both the host identifier and its
current location information. BTMM stores the host identifier (IPv6
ULA) in a DNS AAAA RR and uses a DNS SRV RR [RFC2782] to represent
the host's current location information. For hosts behind a NAT box,
the use of a DNS SRV RR allows BTMM to store both the public IP
address of the NAT box and also the port opened for the host.
The SRV RR consists of eight fields: _Service._Proto.Name, Time to
Live (TTL), Class, Type, Priority, Weight, Port, and Target. BTMM
uses SRV RRs in the following way.
Service is the symbolic name of the desired service. In the BTMM
case, the service is named "autotunnel", which means that the
information contained in the SRV RR is used by BTMM to automatically
set up a tunnel between two end hosts.
Proto is the symbolic name of the desired protocol. In this
document, the protocol is "_udp". BTMM uses "_udp" to tunnel packets
between the two ends to achieve NAT traversal.
Name is the domain this RR refers to. When a user subscribes to BTMM
service with the username "alice", a domain name
"alice.members.me.com" is assigned to her. The user assigns a name,
such as "myMacPro", to each host that is appended to the assigned
domain name. Hence, the first part of the SRV record would look like
Priority and Weight are set to zero, since there is only one instance
that provides autotunnel service for each name in BTMM.
Port is the port opened on the target host of the service. In BTMM,
most likely it is the external port a NAT opened for the host behind
it. Knowing the port number is the basic requirement for NAT
traversal via UDP encapsulation. If the host is not behind a NAT,
the port opened on the host for autotunnel service is placed here.
Target is the canonical hostname of the host that provides the
service. In BTMM, it refers to a name constructed by appending the
user's domain name to an autotunnel label, which identifies the host
and is not generally user-visible. The autotunnel label is created
by concatenating "AutoTunnel" with the IEEE EUI-64 identifier [EUI64]
of the primary network interface. Hence, an example for the Target
field would look like this: AutoTunnel-00-22-69-FF-FE-8E-34-
2A.alice.members.me.com. After obtaining the SRV RR, the remote host
can query the A RR for the Target and get the external tunnel address
for the BTMM client during the NAT Traversal.
4. NAT Traversal
BTMM's NAT traversal function requires NAT router devices to support
NAT-PMP or the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) Internet Gateway Device
(IGD). NAT-PMP is the alternative introduced by Apple Inc. to the
more common IGD Standardized Device Control Protocol [IGD] as
published in the UPnP Forum. Both NAT-PMP and IGD require the NAT
devices to be able to open a port for inbound traffic to some host
behind it and to inform the host about its public IP address. The
differences between IGD and NAT-PMP can be found in [NAT-PMP]. This
section focuses on NAT-PMP.
4.1. Introduction to NAT-PMP
NAT-PMP is a protocol that is designed specifically to handle the NAT
traversal without manual configuration. When a host determines that
its primary IPv4 address is in one of the private IP address ranges
defined in "Address Allocation for Private Internets" [RFC1918], it
invokes NAT-PMP to communicate with the NAT gateway to request the
creation of inbound mappings on demand. Having created a NAT mapping
to allow inbound traffic, the client host then publishes its NAT
box's public IP address and external port number in a DNS server.
A host sends its Port Mapping Protocol request to the default
gateway, which means that by default, this protocol is designed for
small home networks where the host's default gateway is the NAT
router. If the host finds that NAT-PMP or UPnP IGD is not available
on its network, it would proceed under the assumption that the
network is a public network.
4.2. Requesting/Removing a Port Mapping
To request a port mapping, the client host sends its request packet
via UDP to port 5351 of its configured gateway address and waits 250
ms for a response [NAT-PMP]. If no response is received after 250
ms, the host repeats the process with exponential back-off.
While requesting the port mapping, the host can specify the desired
external port (e.g., the port that is identical to the internal port
opened on the host), but the NAT device is not obliged to allocate
the desired one. If such a port is not available, the NAT device
responds with another port. The primary reason for allowing the host
to request a specific port is to help recovery from a NAT device
crash by allowing the host to request the same port number used
before the crash. This simple mechanism allows the end hosts
(instead of the NAT box) to keep the mapping states, which turns hard
state in the network into soft state, and enables automatic recovery
The default port-mapping lifetime is 3600 seconds. The host tries to
renew the mapping every 1800 seconds. The renewal message sent by
the client host, whether for the purpose of extending the lease or
recreating mappings after the NAT device reboots, is the same as the
message requesting a port mapping.
A mapping may be removed in a variety of ways. If a client host
fails to renew a mapping, the mapping is automatically deleted when
its lifetime expires. If the client host's DHCP address lease
expires, the NAT device also automatically deletes the mapping. A
client host can also send an explicit packet to request the deletion
of a mapping that is no longer needed.
4.3. Obtaining NAT Box's Public IP Address
To determine the public IP address of the NAT, the client host also
sends the query packet to port 5351 of the configured gateway
address. The NAT device responds with a packet containing the public
IP address of NAT.
In case the public IP address of the NAT changes, the NAT gateway
sends a gratuitous response to the link-local multicast address
126.96.36.199, port 5350 to notify the clients about the new IP address,
and the host can then update its DNS SRV record to reflect its new
reachability as we describe in the next section.
4.4. Unsupported Scenarios
There are a number of situations where NAT-PMP (and consequently
BTMM) does not work.
4.4.1. NAT behind NAT
Some people's primary IP address assigned by their ISPs may itself be
a NAT address. In addition, some people may have a public IP
address, but may put their hosts (perhaps unknowingly) behind
multiple nested NAT boxes. NAT traversal cannot be achieved with
NAT-PMP in such situations.
4.4.2. NATs and Routed Private Networks
In some cases, a site may run multiple subnets in the private network
behind a NAT gateway. Such subnetting breaks the assumption of NAT-
PMP protocol because a host's default router is not necessarily the
device performing NAT.
5. Handling IP Address or Port Changes
This section describes how BTMM handles IP address or port number
changes, so that the hosts of the same user can find each other and
keep ongoing TCP connections even after the changes happen at one or
5.1. Updating Local Interfaces and Tunnels
After a BTMM client receives the notification about the network
changes, it updates the list of active interfaces. Then, the client
sends requests to the NAT device (if it is behind a NAT) in order to
create a port mapping and obtain the new public IP address.
Next, the BTMM client makes changes to the local autotunnel
interface, i.e., configures the IPv6 interface for the inner address
of the tunnel. If there are established tunnels, it scans to find
those whose local inner/outer addresses have been changed since the
tunnel was set up, and then puts in the current addresses.
With all these done, the BTMM client publishes the changes to DNS.
5.2. Dynamically Updating Reachability Information
The mobile nature of BTMM clients implies that dynamic DNS updates
are required if the location information of hosts are to be published
However, a mobile host may have dynamically updated an RR but the
updated value has not been propagated to the authoritative DNS
server, leaving stale RRs in the server. Hence, Dynamic DNS Update
Leases (DDULs) [DDUL] are employed by BTMM to minimize the chances of
stale RRs. Note that DDUL controls the lifetime of dynamically
updated RRs at the authoritative DNS servers, while the RRs' TTL
values control the cache lifetime at caching resolvers.
In case of network changes, the RRs of a host are updated immediately
after local interfaces are properly configured, and after the port
mapping and the public IP address of the NAT are obtained. Usually
there are 4 types of RRs involved: a AAAA RR for updating the new
host identifier of the host (possibly the same as the old one); an
SRV RR for updating the autotunnel service information, which
includes the new external port; an A RR for updating the new public
IP address; and a TXT RR for describing the autotunnel device
information. The name for the SRV RR is discussed in Section 3, and
the names for the A, AAAA, and TXT RRs are specified in the Target
field of the SRV RR. The host then constructs and sends an SRV query
for the dynamic DNS server to which it should send updates.
Following our example for alice, it queries the SRV RR for _dns-
update-tls._udp.alice.members.me.com. Then, the updates are sent to
the dynamic DNS server returned in the Target field of query
In addition, periodic refreshes are also required by the DDUL even in
the absence of any network changes. The update requests contain a
signed 32-bit integer indicating the lease life in seconds. To
reduce network and server load, a minimum lease of 30 minutes is
required. On the other hand, to avoid stale information, a lease
longer than 2 hours is not allowed in BTMM. The typical length is 90
minutes. The client host refreshes the RRs before the lease expires
to prevent them from being deleted by the server.
5.3. Getting Up-to-Date DNS Resource Records without Polling
In dynamic environments, changes to DNS information can often be
frequent. However, since a DNS query only retrieves the RR value
available at that instance in time, one must continue to query DNS to
learn the latest changes. This solution presents the dilemma of
choosing a low polling rate that leaves the client with stale
information or choosing a high polling rate that would have an
adverse impact on the network and server.
To let the hosts that care about particular DNS RRs learn the changes
quickly and efficiently, BTMM uses DNS Long-Lived Queries (LLQs)
[DNS-LLQ] to let the DNS server notify the client host once any
changes are made to the concerned DNS data.
To obtain the LLQ server information, the client issues an SRV query.
So alice's host issues a query for
_dns-llq-tls._udp.alice.members.me.com and obtains the server that
provides LLQ service. LLQs are initiated by a client and are
completed via a four-way handshake: Initial Request, Challenge,
Challenge Response, and ACK + Answers. During the Challenge phase,
the DNS server provides a unique identifier for the request, and the
client is required to echo this identifier in the Challenge Response
phase. This handshake provides resilience to packet loss,
demonstrates client reachability, and reduces denial-of-service
LLQ lease is negotiated during the handshake. In BTMM, the minimum
lease is 15 minutes, and the maximum lease is 2 hours. Leases are
refreshed before they expire.
When a change ("event") occurs to a name server's domain, the server
checks if the new or deleted RRs answer any LLQs. If so, the RRs are
sent to the LLQ issuers in the form of a gratuitous DNS response.
The client acknowledges the reception of the notification; otherwise,
the server resends the response. If a total of 3 transmissions (with
exponential backoff) fail, the client is considered unreachable, and
the LLQ is deleted.
A BTMM client then updates its tunnels according to the query
answers. The callback function for automatically updating tunnels is
depicted Figure 3.

In Step 1: Client learns the inner IP address of the tunnel.
In Step 3: Client learns the port opened for UDP NAT traversal.
In Step 5: Client learns the public IP address of the remote NAT,
i.e., the outer IP address of the tunnel.
6. IPv6 ULA as Host ID
6.1. The Need for a Host Identifier
BTMM needs to assign a topology-independent identifier to each client
host for the following reasons. First, two end hosts may wish to
have the established TCP connections survive network changes.
Second, sometimes one needs a constant identifier to be associated
with a key so that the Security Association can survive the location
The above needs for a host identifier impose very little constraint
on the properties of the identifier. In particular, one notes that
this identifier does not need to be a permanent one as long as its
lifetime is no shorter than the lifetime of any TCP connection or any
Security Association that runs on the host.
6.2. What to Use as Host Identifiers
Much effort has been put into the development of host identifiers.
Possible candidates for host identifiers include DNS name and Host
Identity Tag (HIT) in the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) [RFC4423].
However, because the current protocol stack used IP as identifiers in
TCP, other transport protocols, and some applications, if one does
not wish to rewrite all the transport protocol and application code,
then DNS is ruled out as infeasible because DNS names have variable
For HIP, although publickey-based HIT has the same length as an IPv6
address, we still lack a secure way to retrieve the public keys.
Under this condition, using HIT would not bring us much benefit.
BTMM chooses to use IPv6 ULA as the host identifier so that all the
existing IPv6 code can be used directly. Since the identifier does
not need to stay constant over machine shutdown or crashes, each host
creates an IPv6 ULA at boot time. Furthermore, since a host does not
leak this ULA to the network, it would not cause any problem to the
6.3. IPv6 ULA Configuration
In BTMM, IPv6 ULA is advertised to be used in the autotunnel service
of the host. Thus, the IPv6 address needs to be configured before
BTMM starts its service.
When the machine boots up, the IPv6 address for autotunnel service is
initialized as zeros, and the autotunnel interface is marked as
inactive. During the process when BTMM updates the interfaces list
(which is performed every time the network changes), BTMM would
randomly generate an IPv6 ULA according to [RFC4193] if the IPv6
address is found uninitialized. The first octet of the ULA is set to
be "0xFD", and the following 7 octets are randomly selected from
0~255. Finally, the EUI-64 identifier fills up the remaining 8
octets. Since there are 56 random bits plus a theoretically unique
EUI-64 identifier, it is unlikely for an IPv6 ULA collision between
any two hosts of the same subscriber to occur.
This locally generated ULA remains unchanged when the machine is on,
despite its location changes. Hence, the user can fully enjoy the
benefits brought by topology-independent host identifiers. After the
machine is turned off, this particular ULA is no longer kept.
7. Securing Communication
BTMM users often have to fetch their personal data via a network they
don't trust (or they do not know whether or not it's trustworthy).
Hence, it is important for BTMM to have an effective means to secure
7.1. Authentication for Connecting to Remote Host
Kerberos is a "single sign on" technology and has been supported in
Apple's products since MAC OS X 10.5. Each Mac OS X client maintains
a local Key Distribution Center (KDC) for the use of Bonjour and
When the user first signs in to MobileMe on a host, it automatically
receives a digital certificate and private key for "Back to My Mac
Encryption Certificate" from KDC. When the user connects to another
system using BTMM, authentication is performed using the Public Key
Cryptography for Initial Authentication in Kerberos (PKINIT) protocol
[RFC4556] with that certificate. After that, the user is granted a
"ticket" that permits it to continue to use the services on the
remote host without re-authenticating until the ticket expires (a
ticket usually has a 10-hour lifetime).
7.2. Authentication for DNS Exchanges
BTMM uses Transaction SIGnature (TSIG) to authenticate the user when
dynamic DNS update is performed [RFC2845]. Also, to protect the
subscriber's privacy, LLQ is required to contain TSIG. This
authentication mechanism is based on the shared secret key, which in
BTMM's case is derived from the subscriber's MobileMe account
Every time a DNS request/response is going to be issued, a TSIG RR is
dynamically computed with the HMAC-MD5 [RFC2104] message digest
algorithm (and the TSIG RR will be discarded once its has been used).
Inside the TSIG RR, the name of the shared secret key in the domain
name syntax is included, so the receiver knows which key to use (this
is especially useful if the receiver is the DNS server). This TSIG
RR is appended to the additional data section before the message is
sent out. The receiver of the message verifies the TSIG RR and
proceeds only if the TSIG is valid.
Besides, the DNS messages are also protected by TLS [RFC5246] to
7.3. IPsec for Secure End-to-End Data Communication
7.3.1. Internet Key Exchange
Before the Security Association can be established between two end
hosts, the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) [RFC5996] process needs to be
BTMM calls Racoon [Racoon], the IKE daemon, to do the key exchange,
after which the key is put into the Security Association Database
(SAD). The exchange mode is set to be aggressive so that it will not
take too long, and it uses a pre-shared key to do the user
authentication. The subscriber's Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN)
is used as both identifier and pre-shared key during the IKE process.
7.3.2. Discussion: End-to-End Encryption
When it comes time to set up Security Associations between two BTMM
clients, we have two choices: put the other host's IPv4 address in
the destination address field or put it in the IPv6 address of the
If the IPv4 address (which is the public address of a NAT) is chosen
to associate with a Security Association, that means we set up a
Security Association between one end host and the NAT of the other
host. The IPv6 packet would then be wrapped by the UDP header and
then get encrypted by ESP. After the encrypted packet arrives at the
NAT, the NAT device decrypts the packet and sends it to the
destination according to the port mapping. Although this approach
seems viable, there are 3 drawbacks:
o First, the encryption is not really end-to-end, i.e., only the
path between one end host and the NAT device of the other end is
protected. The rest of the path, from the NAT device to the other
BTMM client, is unprotected and vulnerable to attacks. If the NAT
device is not trustworthy, the communication is at high risk.
Even if the NAT device is trustworthy (e.g., the user owns the
NAT), it is not uncommon for the NAT to communicate with the host
through a broadcast channel, which provides opportunities for an
eavesdropper to sniff the sensitive data (consider the unlocked
"free" WiFi access near your neighborhood).
o Second, quite a few BTMM clients are on the move very often.
Every time they change their attachment points to the Internet,
they will get different IPv4 addresses. As a result, the
previously established Security Associations become obsoleted, and
the two end hosts need to re-establish them again. This is a
waste of time and resources.
o Third, this approach assumes that the NAT device is able and
willing to do the IPsec ESP for the host behind it, which is not
always the case.
Consequently, BTMM decides to put the IPv6 ULA into the destination
field of IPsec Security Associations. In this way, the end-to-end
path between the hosts is fully protected, and the Security
Associations survive the network changes since the IPv6 ULA remains
the same even if the BTMM client changes its location. Furthermore,
the encryption is transparent to the NAT device, which means the NAT
device is not required to interfere with the IPsec protection.
8. Security Considerations
The BTMM implementation utilizes existing security protocols to
address the end-to-end security considerations. It uses Kerberos
[RFC4120] for end-to-end authentication and uses IPsec [RFC4301] to
secure data communications between two end hosts.
