5. AVP Occurrence Tables

The following tables present the AVPs used by NAS applications in NAS messages and specify in which Diameter messages they may or may not be present. Messages and AVPs defined in the Diameter Base protocol [RFC6733] are not described in this document. Note that AVPs that can only be present within a grouped AVP are not represented in this table. The tables use the following symbols: 0 The AVP MUST NOT be present in the message. 0+ Zero or more instances of the AVP MAY be present in the message.
Top   ToC   RFC7155 - Page 56
      0-1  Zero or one instance of the AVP MAY be present in the
           message.

      1    Exactly one instance of the AVP MUST be present in the
           message.

6. Unicode Considerations

A number of the AVPs in this RFC use the UTF8String type specified in the Diameter Base protocol [RFC6733]. Implementation differences in Unicode input processing may result in the same Unicode input characters generating different UTF-8 strings that fail to match when compared for equality. This may result in interoperability problems between a network access server and a Diameter server when a UTF-8 string entered locally is compared with one received via Diameter. Many of the uses of UTF8String in this RFC are limited to the 7-bit US-ASCII-compatible subset of UTF-8, where this class of Unicode string comparison problems does not arise. Careful preparation of Unicode strings can increase the likelihood that string comparison will work in ways that make sense for typical users throughout the world; [RFC3454] is an example a framework for such Unicode string preparation. The Diameter application specified in this RFC has been deployed with use of Unicode in accordance with [RFC4005], which does not require any Unicode string preparation. As a result, additional requirements for Unicode string preparation in this RFC would not be backwards compatible with existing usage.
Top   ToC   RFC7155 - Page 63
   The Diameter server and the network access servers that it serves can
   be assumed to be under common administrative control, and all of the
   UTF-8 strings involved are part of the configuration of these
   servers.  Therefore, administrative interfaces for implementations of
   this RFC:

   a.  SHOULD accept direct UTF-8 input of all configuration strings for
       AVPs that allow Unicode characters beyond the 7-bit US-ASCII-
       compatible subset of Unicode (in addition to any provisions for
       accepting Unicode characters for processing into UTF-8), and

   b.  SHOULD make all such configuration strings available as UTF-8
       strings.

   This functionality enables an administrator who encounters Unicode
   string comparison problems to copy one instance of aproblematic UTF-8
   string from one server to the other, after which the two (now
   identical) copies should compare as expected.

7. IANA Considerations

Several of the namespaces used in this document are managed by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority [IANA], including the AVP Codes [AVP-Codes], AVP Specific Values [AVP-Vals], Application IDs [App-Ids], Command Codes [Command-Codes], and RADIUS Attribute Values [RADIUSAttrVals]. For the current values allocated, and the policies governing allocation in those namespaces, please see the above-referenced registries.

8. Security Considerations

This document describes the extension of Diameter for the NAS application. Security considerations regarding the Diameter protocol itself are discussed in [RFC6733]. Use of this application of Diameter MUST take into consideration the security issues and requirements of the Base protocol.

8.1. Authentication Considerations

This document does not contain a security protocol but does discuss how PPP authentication protocols can be carried within the Diameter protocol. The PPP authentication protocols described are PAP and CHAP.
Top   ToC   RFC7155 - Page 64
   The use of PAP SHOULD be discouraged, as it exposes users' passwords
   to possibly non-trusted entities.  However, PAP is also frequently
   used for use with one-time passwords, which do not expose a security
   risk.

   This document also describes how CHAP can be carried within the
   Diameter protocol, which is required for RADIUS backward
   compatibility.  The CHAP protocol, as used in a RADIUS environment,
   facilitates authentication replay attacks.

   The use of the EAP authentication protocols [RFC4072] can offer
   better security, given a method suitable for the circumstances.

   Depending on the value of the Auth-Request-Type AVP, the Diameter
   protocol allows authorization-only requests that contain no
   authentication information from the client.  This capability goes
   beyond the Call Check capabilities provided by RADIUS (Section 5.6 of
   [RFC2865]) in that no access decision is requested.  As a result, a
   new session cannot be started as a result of a response to an
   authorization-only request without introducing a significant security
   vulnerability.

8.2. AVP Considerations

Diameter AVPs often contain security-sensitive data; for example, user passwords and location data, network addresses and cryptographic keys. With the exception of the Configuration-Token (Section 4.4.8), QoS-Filter-Rule (Section 4.4.9), and Tunneling (Section 4.5.1) AVPs, all of the AVPs defined in this document are considered to be security-sensitive. Diameter messages containing any AVPs considered to be security- sensitive MUST only be sent protected via mutually authenticated TLS or IPsec. In addition, those messages MUST NOT be sent via intermediate nodes unless there is end-to-end security between the originator and recipient or the originator has locally trusted configuration that indicates that end-to-end security is not needed. For example, end-to-end security may not be required in the case where an intermediary node is known to be operated as part of the same administrative domain as the endpoints so that an ability to successfully compromise the intermediary would imply a high probability of being able to compromise the endpoints as well. Note that no end-to-end security mechanism is specified in this document.

A.1. This Document

The vast majority of the text in this document was taken directly from RFC 4005; the editor owes a debt of gratitude to the authors thereof (especially Dave Mitton, who somehow managed to make nroff paginate the AVP Occurance Tables correctly!). Thanks (in no particular order) to Jai-Jin Lim, Liu Hans, Sebastien Decugis, Jouni Korhonen, Mark Jones, Hannes Tschofenig, Dave Crocker, David Black, Barry Leiba, Peter Saint-Andre, Stefan Winter, and Lionel Morand for their useful reviews and helpful comments.

A.2. RFC 4005

The authors would like to thank Carl Rigney, Allan C. Rubens, William Allen Simpson, and Steve Willens for their work on the original RADIUS protocol, from which many of the concepts in this specification were derived. Thanks, also, to Carl Rigney for [RFC2866] and [RFC2869]; Ward Willats for [RFC2869]; Glen Zorn, Bernard Aboba, and Dave Mitton for [RFC2867] and [RFC3162]; and Dory Leifer, John Shriver, Matt Holdrege, Allan Rubens, Glen Zorn, and Ignacio Goyret for their work on [RFC2868]. This document stole text and concepts from both [RFC2868] and [RFC2869]. Thanks go to Carl Williams for providing IPv6-specific text. The authors would also like to acknowledge the following people for their contributions in the development of the Diameter protocol: Bernard Aboba, Jari Arkko, William Bulley, Kuntal Chowdhury, Daniel C. Fox, Lol Grant, Nancy Greene, Jeff Hagg, Peter Heitman, Paul Krumviede, Fergal Ladley, Ryan Moats, Victor Muslin, Kenneth Peirce, Sumit Vakil, John R. Vollbrecht, and Jeff Weisberg. Finally, Pat Calhoun would like to thank Sun Microsystems, as most of the effort put into this document was done while he was in their employ.
