         Session Peering Provisioning (SPP) Protocol over SOAP

Abstract

The Session Peering Provisioning Framework (SPPF) specifies the data model and the overall structure to provision Session Establishment Data (SED) into Session Data Registries and SIP Service Provider data stores. To utilize this framework, one needs a substrate protocol. Given that the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) is currently widely used for messaging between elements of such provisioning systems, this document specifies the usage of SOAP (via HTTPS) as the substrate protocol for SPPF. The benefits include leveraging prevalent expertise and a higher probability that existing provisioning systems will be able to easily migrate to using an SPPF- based protocol.

1. Introduction

SPPF, defined in [RFC7877], is best supported by a transport and messaging infrastructure that is connection oriented, is request- response oriented, is easily secured, supports propagation through firewalls in a standard fashion, and is easily integrated into back- office systems. This is due to the fact that the client side of SPPF is likely to be integrated with organizations' operational support systems that facilitate transactional provisioning of user addresses and their associated SED. The server side of SPPF is likely to reside in a separate organization's network, resulting in the SPPF provisioning transactions traversing the Internet as they are propagated from the SPPF client to the SPPF server. Given the current state of industry practice and technologies, SOAP and HTTP(S) are well suited for this type of environment. This document describes the specification for transporting SPPF XML structures, using SOAP and HTTP(S) as substrates. The specification in this document for transporting SPPF XML structures over SOAP and HTTP(S) is primarily comprised of five subjects: (1) a description of any applicable SOAP features, (2) any
Top   ToC   RFC7878 - Page 4
   applicable HTTP features, (3) security considerations, (4) (perhaps
   most importantly) the Web Services Description Language (WSDL)
   definition for the SPP Protocol over SOAP, and (5) XML Schema
   Definition (XSD) types that are "substrate" specific.

2. Terminology

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 [RFC2119].

3. SOAP Features and Protocol Layering

The list of SOAP features that are explicitly used and required for SPPP over SOAP are limited. Most SOAP features are not necessary for SPPF. SPPP over SOAP primarily uses SOAP simply as a standard message-envelope technology. The SOAP message envelope is comprised of the SOAP header and body. As described in the SOAP specification [SOAPREF], the SOAP header can contain optional, application- specific, information about the message. The SOAP body contains the SPPF message itself, whose structure is defined by the combination of one of the WSDL operations defined in this document and the SPPF XML data structures defined in this document and the SPPF document. SPPF does not rely on any data elements in the SOAP header. All relevant data elements are defined in the SPPF XML Schema described in [RFC7877] and the SPPF WSDL types specification described in Section 9 of this document. WSDL is a widely standardized and adopted technology for defining the top-level structures of the messages that are transported within the body of a SOAP message. The WSDL definition for the SPPF SOAP messages is defined later in this document, which imports by reference the XML data types contained in the SPPF schema. The IANA registry where the SPPF schema resides is described in "The IETF XML Registry" [RFC3688]. There are multiple structural styles that WSDL allows. The best practice for this type of application is what is sometimes referred to as the "document/literal wrapped style". This style is generally regarded as an optimal approach that enhances maintainability, comprehension, portability, and, to a certain extent, performance. It is characterized by setting the soapAction binding style as "document", the soapAction encoding style as "literal", and then defining the SOAP messages to simply contain a single data element that "wraps" a data structure containing all the required input or output data elements. The figure below illustrates this high-level technical structure as conceptual layers 3 through 6.

   Figure 1: Layering and Technical Structure of SPPP over SOAP Messages
Top   ToC   RFC7878 - Page 6
   The operations supported by SPPP over SOAP are normatively defined
   later in this document.  Each SOAP operation defines a request/input
   message and a response/output message.  Each such request and
   response message then contains a single object that wraps the SPPF
   XML data types that comprise the inputs and the outputs,
   respectively, of the SOAP operation.

   SOAP faults are not used by the SPPP over SOAP.  All success and
   error responses are specified in Section 7.3 of this document.
   However, if a SOAP fault were to occur, perhaps due to failures in
   the SOAP message handling layer of a SOAP library, the client
   application should capture and handle the fault.  Specifics on how to
   handle such SOAP faults, if they should occur, will be specific to
   the chosen SOAP implementation.

   Implementations MUST use SOAP 1.2 [SOAPREF] or higher and MUST
   support SOAP 1.2.  Implementations SHOULD use WSDL 1.1 [WSDLREF] and
   MUST NOT use earlier versions.  Use of WSDL versions greater than 1.1
   may introduce interoperability problems with implementations that use
   1.1.

   SPPF is a request/reply framework that allows a client application to
   submit provisioning data and query requests to a server.  The SPPF
   data structures are designed to be protocol agnostic.  Concerns
   regarding encryption, non-repudiation, and authentication are beyond
   the scope of this document.  For more details, please refer to
   Section 4 ("Transport Substrate Protocol Requirements") of [RFC7877].

   As illustrated in the previous diagram, SPPF can be viewed as a set
   of layers that collectively define the structure of an SPPF request
   and response.  Layers 1 and 2 represent the transport, envelope, and
   authentication technologies.  This document defines layers 3, 4, 5,
   and 6 for SPPP over SOAP.

   1.  Layer 1: The transport protocol layer represents the
       communication mechanism between the client and server.  SPPF can
       be layered over any substrate protocol that provides a set of
       basic requirements defined in Section 4 of [RFC7877].

   2.  Layer 2: The message-envelope layer is optional but can provide
       features that are above the transport technology layer but below
       the application messaging layer.  Technologies such as HTTP and
       SOAP are examples of message-envelope technologies.

   3.  Layers 3, 4, 5, and 6: The operation and message layers provide
       an envelope-independent and substrate-independent wrapper for the
       SPPF data model objects that are being acted on (created,
       modified, and queried).

4. HTTP(S) Features and SPPP over SOAP

While SOAP is not tied to HTTP(S), for reasons described in the Introduction, HTTP(S) is a good choice as the substrate protocol for the SPP Protocol SOAP messages. HTTP 1.1 includes the "persistent connection" feature, which allows multiple HTTP request/response pairs to be transported across a single HTTP connection. This is an important performance optimization feature, particularly when the connection is an HTTPS connection where the relatively time-consuming TLS handshake has occurred. Implementations compliant with this document MUST use HTTP 1.1 [RFC7230] or higher. Also, implementations SHOULD use persistent connections.

5. Authentication, Integrity, and Confidentiality

To accomplish authentication, conforming SPPP over SOAP clients and servers MUST use HTTP Digest Authentication as defined in [RFC7235]. To achieve integrity and privacy, conforming SPPP over SOAP clients and servers MUST support TLS as defined in [RFC5246] as the secure transport mechanism. Use of TLS MUST follow the recommendations contained in [RFC7525]

6. Language Identification

Section 9 of [RFC7877] requires protocols to provide a mechanism to transmit language tags together with human-readable messages. When conforming SPPP SOAP servers use such tagging, the XML "lang" attribute ([W3C.REC-xml-20081126], Section 2.12) MUST be used. Clients MAY use the HTTP "Accept-Language" header field (see Section 5.3.5 of [RFC7231]) in order to indicate their language preference.

7. SPPP SOAP Data Structures

SPPP over SOAP uses a set of XML-based data structures for all the supported operations and any parameters to which those operations are applied. As also mentioned earlier in this document, these XML structures are envelope independent and substrate independent. Refer to "Protocol Operations" (Section 8) of this document for a description of all the operations that MUST be supported. The following sections describe the definitions of all the XML data structures.
Top   ToC   RFC7878 - Page 8

7.1. Concrete Object Key Types

Certain operations in SPPF require an object key that uniquely identifies the object(s) on which a given operation needs to be performed. SPPF defines the XML structure of any such object key in an abstract manner and delegates the concrete representation to any conforming substrate protocol. The following subsections define the various types of concrete object key types used in various operations in SPPP over SOAP.

7.1.1. Generic Object Key

Most objects in SPPP over SOAP are uniquely identified by the attributes in the generic object key (Refer to "Generic Object Key Type", Section 5.2.1 of [RFC7877], for details). The concrete XML representation of ObjKeyType is as below: <complexType name="ObjKeyType"> <complexContent> <extension base="sppfb:ObjKeyType"> <sequence> <element name="rant" type="sppfb:OrgIdType"/> <element name="name" type="sppfb:ObjNameType"/> <element name="type" type="sppfs:ObjKeyTypeEnum"/> </sequence> </extension> </complexContent> </complexType> The ObjKeyType has the data elements as described below: o rant: The identifier of the Registrant organization that owns the object. o name: The character string that contains the name of the object. o type: The enumeration value that represents the type of SPPF object. For example, both a Destination Group and a SED Group can have the same name "TestObj" and be associated with the same Registrant ID. Hence, to uniquely identify the object that represents a Destination Group with the name "TestObj", the type "DestGrp" must be specified when using this concrete ObjKeyType structure to identify the Destination Group "TestObj".
Top   ToC   RFC7878 - Page 9
   The object types in SPPP over SOAP MUST adhere to the above
   definition of generic object key and are defined as an enumeration in
   the XML data structure as follows:

    <simpleType name="ObjKeyTypeEnum">
      <restriction base="token">
        <enumeration value="SedGrp"/>
        <enumeration value="DestGrp"/>
        <enumeration value="SedRec"/>
        <enumeration value="EgrRte"/>
      </restriction>
    </simpleType>

7.1.2. Public Identifier Object Key

Public Identifier type objects can further be of various sub-types like a Telephone Number (TN), Routing Number (RN), TN Prefix, URI, or TN Range and cannot be cleanly identified with the attributes in the generic ObjKeyType. The definition of PubIdKeyType is as below: <complexType name="PubIdKeyType"> <complexContent> <extension base="sppfb:PubIdKeyType"> <sequence> <element name="rant" type="sppfb:OrgIdType"/> <choice> <element name="number" type="sppfb:NumberType"/> <element name="range" type="sppfb:NumberRangeType"/> <element name="uri" type="anyURI"/> </choice> </sequence> </extension> </complexContent> </complexType> The PubIdKeyType has data elements, as described below: o rant: The identifier of the Registrant organization that owns the object. o number: An element of type NumberType (refer to Section 12 of [RFC7877]) that contains the value and type of a number. o range: An element of type NumberRangeType (refer to Section 12 of [RFC7877]) that contains a range of numbers.
Top   ToC   RFC7878 - Page 10
   o  uri: A value that represents a Public Identifier.

   Any instance of PubIdKeyType MUST contain exactly one element from
   the following set of elements: "number", "range", "uri".

7.1.3. SED Group Offer Key

In addition to the attributes in the generic ObjKeyType, a SED Group Offer object is uniquely identified by the organization ID of the organization to whom a SED Group has been offered. The definition of SedGrpOfferKeyType is as below: <complexType name="SedGrpOfferKeyType"> <complexContent> <extension base="sppfb:SedGrpOfferKeyType"> <sequence> <element name="sedGrpKey" type="sppfs:ObjKeyType"/> <element name="offeredTo" type="sppfb:OrgIdType"/> </sequence> </extension> </complexContent> </complexType> The SedGrpOfferKeyType has the data elements as described below: o sedGrpKey: Identifies the SED Group that was offered. o offeredTo: The organization ID of the organization that was offered the SED Group object identified by the sedGrpKey.

7.2. Operation Request and Response Structures

An SPPF client interacts with an SPPF server by sending one or more requests to the server and by receiving corresponding responses from the server. The basic set of operations that an SPPF client can submit to an SPPF server and the semantics of those operations are defined in "Framework Operations", Section 7 of [RFC7877]. The following subsections describe the XML data structures that are used for each of those types of operations for an SPPP over SOAP implementation.

7.2.1. Add Operation Structure

In order to add (or modify) an object in the Registry, an authorized entity can send the spppAddRequest to the Registry.
Top   ToC   RFC7878 - Page 11
   An SPPP over SOAP Add request is wrapped within the <spppAddRequest>
   element while an SPPP over SOAP Add response is wrapped within an
   <spppAddResponse> element.  The following sub-sections describe the
   <spppAddRequest> and <spppAddResponse> elements.  Refer to Section 10
   for an example of an Add operation on each type of SPPF object.

7.2.1.1. Add Request
An SPPP over SOAP Add request definition is contained within the generic <spppAddRequest> element. <element name="spppAddRequest"> <complexType> <sequence> <element name="clientTransId" type="sppfb:TransIdType" minOccurs="0"/> <element name="minorVer" type="sppfb:MinorVerType" minOccurs="0"/> <element name="obj" type="sppfb:BasicObjType" maxOccurs="unbounded"/> </sequence> </complexType> </element> The data elements within the <spppAddRequest> element are described as follows: o clientTransId: Zero or one client-generated transaction ID that, within the context of the SPPF client, identifies this request. This value can be used at the discretion of the SPPF client to track, log, or correlate requests and their responses. The SPPF server MUST echo back this value to the client in the corresponding response to the incoming request. The SPPF server will not check this value for uniqueness. o minorVer: Zero or one minor version identifier, as defined in Section 7.4. o obj: One or more elements of abstract type BasicObjType (defined in [RFC7877]). Each element contains all the attributes of an SPPF object that the client is requesting the SPPF server to add. Refer to Section 3.1 of [RFC7877] for the XML structure of all concrete types, for various SPPF objects, that extend from abstract BasicObjType and hence are eligible to be passed into this element. The elements are processed by the SPPF server in the order in which they are included in the request. With respect to the handling of error conditions, conforming SPPP SOAP servers MUST stop processing BasicObjType elements in the request at the
Top   ToC   RFC7878 - Page 12
      first error and roll back any BasicObjType elements that had
      already been processed for that add request ("stop and roll
      back").

7.2.1.2. Add Response
An SPPP over SOAP add response object is contained within the generic <spppAddResponse> element. This response structure is used for all types of SPPF objects that are provisioned by the SPPF client. <element name="spppAddResponse"> <complexType> <sequence> <element name="clientTransId" type="sppfb:TransIdType" minOccurs="0"/> <element name="serverTransId" type="sppfb:TransIdType"/> <element name="overallResult" type="sppfs:ResultCodeType"/> <element name="detailResult" type="sppfs:ObjResultCodeType" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/> </sequence> </complexType> </element> <complexType name="ResultCodeType"> <sequence> <element name="code" type="int"/> <element name="msg" type="string"/> </sequence> </complexType> <complexType name="ObjResultCodeType"> <complexContent> <extension base="sppfs:ResultCodeType"> <sequence> <element name="obj" type="sppfb:BasicObjType"/> </sequence> </extension> </complexContent> </complexType> An <spppAddResponse> contains the elements necessary for the SPPF client to precisely determine the overall result of the request, and if an error occurs, it provides information about the specific object(s) that caused the error.
Top   ToC   RFC7878 - Page 13
   The data elements within the SPPP over SOAP Add response are
   described as follows:

   o  clientTransId: Zero or one client transaction ID.  This value is
      simply an echo of the client transaction ID that the SPPF client
      passed into the SPPF update request.  When included in the
      request, the SPPF server MUST return it in the corresponding
      response message.

   o  serverTransId: Exactly one server transaction ID that identifies
      this request for tracking purposes.  This value MUST be unique for
      a given SPPF server.

   o  overallResult: Exactly one response code and message pair that
      explicitly identifies the result of the request.  See Section 7.3
      for further details.

   o  detailResult: An optional response code, response message, and
      BasicObjType (as defined in [RFC7877]) triplet.  This element will
      be present only if an object-level error has occurred.  It
      indicates the error condition and the exact request object that
      contributed to the error.  The response code will reflect the
      exact error.  See Section 7.3 for further details.

7.2.2. Delete Operation Structure

In order to remove an object from the Registry, an authorized entity can send the spppDelRequest into the Registry. An SPPP over SOAP Delete request is wrapped within the <spppDelRequest> element while an SPPP over SOAP Delete response is wrapped within the generic <spppDelResponse> element.

Each element contains attributes that uniquely identify the object that the client is requesting the server to delete. Refer to Section 7.1 for a description of all concrete object key types, for various SPPF objects, which are eligible to be passed into this element. The elements are processed by the SPPF server in the order in which they are included in the request. With respect to the handling of error conditions, conforming SPPP SOAP servers MUST stop processing ObjKeyType elements in the request at the first error and roll back any ObjKeyType elements that had already been processed for that Delete request ("stop and roll back").
