Message Session Relay Protocol (MSRP) over Data Channels

Abstract

This document specifies how a Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) data channel can be used as a transport mechanism for the Message Session Relay Protocol (MSRP) and how the Session Description Protocol (SDP) offer/answer mechanism can be used to negotiate such a data channel, referred to as an MSRP data channel. Two network configurations are supported: the connection of two MSRP data channel endpoints; and a gateway configuration, which connects an MSRP data channel endpoint with an MSRP endpoint that uses either TCP or TLS. This document updates RFC 4975.

1.  Introduction

The Message Session Relay Protocol (MSRP) [RFC 4975] is a protocol for transmitting a series of related instant messages in the context of a session. In addition to instant messaging, MSRP can also be used for image sharing or file transfer. MSRP was initially defined in [RFC 4975] to work over TCP and TLS connections, and over a WebSocket subprotocol specified by [RFC 7977].
This document specifies how a Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) data channel [RFC 8831] can be used as a transport mechanism for MSRP without the TCP and TLS layers, and how the Session Description Protocol (SDP) offer/answer mechanism for data channels [RFC 8864] can be used to negotiate such a data channel.
In this document, an MSRP data channel refers to a WebRTC data channel for which the instantiated subprotocol is "msrp" and the data channel is negotiated using the SDP offer/answer mechanism [RFC 8864].
Defining MSRP as a data channel subprotocol has many benefits:
  • provides to applications a proven protocol enabling instant messaging, file transfer, image sharing
  • integrates those features with other WebRTC voice, video, and data features
  • leverages the SDP-based negotiation already defined for MSRP
  • allows the interworking with MSRP endpoints running on a TCP or TLS connection
Compared to the WebSocket protocol, which provides a message-passing protocol to applications with no direct access to TCP or TLS sockets, data channels provide a low-latency transport and leverage NAT-aware connectivity and the security features of WebRTC.
This document defines an MSRP data channel endpoint as an MSRP application that uses a WebRTC data channel for MSRP transport. This document describes configurations for connecting such endpoint to another MSRP data channel endpoint, or to an MSRP endpoint that uses either TCP or TLS transport.
This document updates [RFC 4975] as described in Section 7.

3.  WebRTC Data Channel Considerations

3.1.  MSRP Data Channel

The following WebRTC data channel property values [RFC 8831] apply to an MSRP data channel:
Property Value
Subprotocol Identifier msrp
Transmission reliability reliable
Transmission order in-order
Label See Section 4.3
Table 1
Top   ToC   RFCv3-8873

4.  SDP Considerations

The generic SDP considerations, including the SDP offer/answer procedures [RFC 3264], for negotiating a WebRTC data channel are defined in [RFC 8864]. This section and its subsections define the SDP considerations that are specific to an MSRP data channel, identified by the "subprotocol" attribute parameter, with an "msrp" parameter value in the 'dcmap' attribute.

4.1.  MSRP URI

This document extends the MSRP URI syntax [RFC 4975] by defining the new transport parameter value "dc" (an abbreviation of data channel):
    transport  /= "dc"
    ; Add "dc" to existing transports per Section 9 of [RFC4975]
MSRP design provides for new transport bindings (see Section 6 of RFC 4975). MSRP implementations are expected to allow unrecognized transports for which there is no need to establish a connection to the resource described by the URI, as is the case of data channels (Section 4.4).

4.2.  MSRP URI msrp-scheme

The msrp-scheme portion of the MSRP URI that represents an MSRP data channel endpoint (used in the SDP 'path' attribute and in the MSRP message headers) is always "msrps", which indicates that the MSRP data channel is always secured using DTLS as described in [RFC 8831].

4.3.  Use of the 'dcmap' Attribute

An offerer and answerer SHALL, in each offer and answer, include a 'dcmap' attribute [RFC 8864] in the SDP media description ("m=" section) [RFC 4566] describing the SCTP association [RFC 4960] used to realize the MSRP data channel.
The attribute includes the following data channel parameters:
  • "label=" labelstring
  • "subprotocol=" "msrp"
The labelstring is set by the MSRP application according to [RFC 8864].
The offerer and answerer SHALL NOT include the "max-retr" and the "max-time" attribute parameters in the 'dcmap' attribute.
The offerer and answerer MAY include the "ordered" attribute parameter in the 'dcmap' attribute. If included, the attribute parameter value SHALL be set to "true".
Below is an example of a 'dcmap' attribute for an MSRP session to be negotiated with the "dcmap-stream-id" parameter set to 2 and the "label" parameter set to "chat":
a=dcmap:2 label="chat";subprotocol="msrp"

4.4.  Use of the 'dcsa' Attribute

An offerer and answerer can, in each offer and answer, include one or more data channel subprotocol attributes ('dcsa' attributes) [RFC 8864] in the "m=" section describing the SCTP association used to realize the MSRP data channel. An SDP attribute included in a 'dcsa' attribute is referred to as a DCSA-embedded attribute.
If an offerer or answerer receives a 'dcsa' attribute that contains an SDP attribute for which usage has not been defined for an MSRP data channel, the offerer or answerer should ignore the 'dcsa' attribute, following the rules in Section 6.7 of RFC 8864.
An offerer and answerer SHALL include a 'dcsa' attribute for each of the following MSRP-specific SDP attributes:
It is considered a protocol error if one or more of the DCSA-embedded attributes listed above are not included in an offer or answer.
An offerer and answerer MAY include a 'dcsa' attribute for any of the following MSRP-specific SDP attributes, following the procedures defined for each attribute:
  • defined in [RFC 4975]: 'accept-types', 'accept-wrapped-types', and 'max-size'.
  • defined in [RFC 4566]: 'sendonly', 'recvonly', 'inactive', and 'sendrecv'.
  • defined in [RFC 5547]: all the parameters related to MSRP file transfer. See Section 4.7.
A subsequent offer or answer MAY update the previously negotiated MSRP subprotocol attributes while keeping the 'dcmap' attribute associated with the MSRP data channel unchanged. The semantics for newly negotiated MSRP subprotocol attributes are per [RFC 4975].
When MSRP messages are transported on a data channel, the 'path' attribute is not used for the routing of the messages. The MSRP data channel is established using the SDP offer/answer procedures defined in [RFC 8864], and the MSRP messages are then transported on that data channel. This is different from legacy MSRP [RFC 4975] but similar to MSRP Connection Establishment for Media Anchoring (MSRP CEMA) [RFC 6714]. Because of this, a DCSA-embedded 'msrp-cema' attribute is mandated for MSRP sessions over data channels. However, when an endpoint receives an MSRP message over a data channel, it MUST still perform the MSRP URI comparison procedures defined in [RFC 4975].

4.5.  Use of the DCSA-Embedded 'setup' Attribute

As described in Section 4.4, the usage of a DCSA-embedded 'setup' attribute is mandated for MSRP sessions over data channels. It is used to negotiate which MSRP data channel endpoint assumes the active role as per Section 4.2.2 of RFC 6135 and Section 5.4 of RFC 4975. It has no relationship with the DTLS connection establishment roles [RFC 8841].
The DCSA-embedded 'setup' attribute is of the form "a=dcsa:x setup:<role>", with x being the data channel's SCTP stream identifier, so that the 'setup' attribute is explicitly associated with an MSRP session over a specific data channel.

4.6.  Session Closing

An MSRP session is closed by closing the associated data channel following the procedures in [RFC 8864].
The port value for the "m=" line SHOULD NOT be changed (e.g., to zero) when closing an MSRP session (unless all data channels are being closed and the SCTP association is no longer needed) since this would close the SCTP association and impact all of the data channels. In all cases in [RFC 4975] where the procedure calls for setting the port to zero in the MSRP "m=" line in an SDP offer for TCP transport, the SDP offerer of an MSRP session with data channel transport SHALL remove the corresponding 'dcmap' and 'dcsa' attributes.

4.7.  Support for MSRP File Transfer Function

SDP attributes specified in [RFC 5547] for a file transfer "m=" line are embedded as subprotocol-specific attributes using the syntax defined in [RFC 8864].

4.8.  Example

Below is an example of an offer and an answer that include the attributes needed to establish two MSRP sessions: one for chat and one for file transfer. The example is derived from a combination of examples in [RFC 4975] and [RFC 5547].

5.  MSRP Considerations

The procedures specified in [RFC 4975] apply except when this document specifies otherwise. This section describes the MSRP considerations specific to an MSRP data channel.

5.1.  Session Mapping

In this document, each MSRP session maps to one data channel exactly.

5.2.  Session Opening

Section 4.5 describes how the active MSRP data channel endpoint role is negotiated. The active MSRP data channel endpoint uses the data channel established for this MSRP session by the generic data channel opening procedure defined in [RFC 8864].
As soon as the WebRTC data channel is opened, the MSRP session is actually opened by the active MSRP data channel endpoint. In order to do this, the active MSRP data channel endpoint sends an MSRP SEND message (empty or not) to the peer (passive) MSRP data channel endpoint.

5.3.  Session Closing

The closure of an MSRP session SHALL be signaled via SDP following the requirements in Section 4.6.
If the data channel used to transport the MSRP session fails and is torn down, the MSRP data channel endpoints SHALL consider the MSRP session failed. An MSRP data channel endpoint MAY, based on local policy, try to negotiate a new MSRP data channel.

5.4.  Data Framing

Each text-based MSRP message is sent on the corresponding data channel using standard MSRP framing and chunking procedures, as defined in [RFC 4975], with each MSRP chunk delivered in a single SCTP user message. Therefore all sent MSRP chunks SHALL have lengths of less than or equal to the value of the peer's 'max-message-size' attribute [RFC 8841] associated with the SCTP association.

5.5.  Data Sending, Receiving, and Reporting

Data sending, receiving, and reporting procedures SHALL conform to [RFC 4975].

5.6.  Support for MSRP File Transfer Function

[RFC 5547] defines an end-to-end file transfer method based on MSRP and the SDP offer/answer mechanism. This file transfer method is also usable by MSRP data channel endpoints with the following considerations:
  • As an MSRP session maps to one data channel, a file transfer session maps also to one data channel.
  • SDP attributes are negotiated as specified in Section 4.7.
  • Once the file transfer is complete, the same data channel MAY be reused for another file transfer.
Top   ToC   RFCv3-8873

6.  Gateway Considerations

This section describes the network configuration where one MSRP endpoint uses an MSRP data channel as MSRP transport, the other MSRP endpoint uses TLS/TCP connections as MSRP transport, and the two MSRP endpoints interwork via a gateway.
Specifically, a gateway can be configured to interwork an MSRP session over a data channel with a peer that does not support data channel transport in one of two ways.
In one model, the gateway performs as an MSRP Back-to-Back User Agent (B2BUA) to interwork all the procedures as necessary between the endpoints. No further specification is needed for this model.
Alternately, the gateway can provide transport-level interworking between MSRP endpoints using different transport protocols. In accordance with Section 4.4, 'path' attributes SHALL NOT be used for transport-level interworking.
When the gateway performs transport-level interworking between MSRP endpoints, all of the procedures in Section 4 and Section 5 apply to each peer, with the following additions:
  • The gateway SHALL use the MSRP CEMA mechanism [RFC 6714] towards the non-data channel endpoint.
  • If the non-data channel endpoint does not support MSRP CEMA, transport-level interworking mode is not possible, and the gateway needs to act as an MSRP B2BUA.
  • The gateway SHALL NOT modify the 'path' attribute received from data channel or from non-data channel endpoints.
  • The gateway SHALL NOT modify the 'setup' value received from data channel or from non-data channel endpoints.
  • The endpoint establishing an MSRP session using data channel transport SHALL NOT request inclusion of any relays, although it MAY interoperate with a peer that signals the use of relays.

7.  Updates to RFC 4975

This document updates [RFC 4975] by allowing the usage of the "msrps" scheme when the underlying connection is protected with DTLS.
Top   ToC   RFCv3-8873

8.  Security Considerations

MSRP traffic over data channels, including confidentiality, integrity, and source authentication, is secured as specified by [RFC 8831]. However, [RFC 4975] allows transport of MSRP traffic over nonsecured TCP connections and does not provide a mechanism to guarantee usage of TLS end to end. As described in [RFC 4975], even if TLS is used between some hops, TCP might still be used between other hops. Operators need to establish proper policies in order to ensure that the MSRP traffic is protected between endpoints.
[RFC 5547] specifies security considerations related to the usage of MSRP for file transfer.
[RFC 7092] specifies security considerations related to B2BUAs.
Note that the discussion in Section 14.5 of RFC 4975 on MSRP message attribution to remote identities applies to data channel transport.
If the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) [RFC 3261] is used to implement the offer/answer transactions for establishing the MSRP data channel, the SIP security considerations specified in [RFC 3261] apply.
Top   ToC   RFCv3-8873

9.  IANA Considerations

9.1.  "msrps" URI scheme

This document modifies the usage of the "msrps" URI scheme, registered by [RFC 4975], by adding DTLS as a protected transport indicated by the URI scheme.
A reference to RFC 8873 has been added to the URI scheme "msrps" in the "Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Schemes" registry.

9.2.  Subprotocol Identifier "msrp"

A reference to RFC 8873 has been added to the subprotocol identifier "msrp" in the "WebSocket Subprotocol Name Registry".

9.3.  SDP Attributes

This document modifies the usage of a set of SDP attributes if any of those attributes is included in an SDP 'dcsa' attribute associated with an MSRP data channel. The modified usage of the SDP 'setup' attribute is described in Section 4.5. The usage of the other SDP attributes is described in Section 4.4.
