RFC 3559 Multicast Address Allocation MIB June 2003 1. Introduction This document defines a Management Information Base (MIB) module for managing multicast address allocation in a protocol-independent manner, as well as for managing specific protocols used in allocating multicast addresses. The protocol-independent objects in this MIB apply to all multicast address allocation servers (MAASs) and clients, as described in [ARCH], including those that allocate source-specific multicast addresses for the local machine. The protocol-specific objects in this MIB include objects related to the Multicast Address Dynamic Client Allocation Protocol (MADCAP) [MADCAP]. Interactions with the Multicast-scope Zone Announcement Protocol (MZAP) [MZAP] are also noted where appropriate. 2. The Internet-Standard Management Framework For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of RFC 3410 [RFC3410]. Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [RFC2580]. 3. Overview The purpose of this MIB module is to provide the ability to configure and monitor the status of multicast address allocation within the local domain. Some important monitoring questions which can be answered by this MIB module include: o How full is scope X? o Who's using up the space? o Who allocated a given address A? o Are requests being met? Thaler Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 3559 Multicast Address Allocation MIB June 2003 This MIB module is divided into two primary sections: o Protocol-independent objects relevant to all multicast address allocation servers and clients. o Protocol-specific objects related to the MADCAP client-server protocol. 3.1. Protocol-independent objects The protocol-independent objects consist of one "capabilities" scalar and five tables. The tables are: o The Scope Table contains information on the multicast scopes known to a multicast address allocation server. This table allows configuring scopes, and viewing what scopes are known to the local system after being configured elsewhere. o The Scope Name Table contains the names of the multicast scopes. This table logically extends the Scope Table with the list of scope names in various languages for each scope. o The Allocation Range Table contains the address ranges out of which the device may allocate addresses. It also allows answering the questions "How full is scope X?" and "Are requests being met?" o The Request Table contains the requests for address allocations, and allows answering the question "Who's using up the space?" o The Address Table contains the blocks of addresses which have been allocated, and together with the Request Table, allows answering the question "Who allocated a given address A?" 3.2. Protocol-specific objects The MADCAP objects consist of a group of (scalar) configuration parameters, and a group of (scalar) statistics. Thaler Standards Track [Page 3]

IANA Considerations The IANAscopeSource and IANAmallocRangeSource textual conventions are imported from the IANA-MALLOC-MIB. The purpose of defining these textual conventions in a separate MIB module is to allow additional values to be defined without having to issue a new version of this document. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is responsible for the assignment of all Internet numbers, including various SNMP-related numbers; it will administer the values associated with these textual conventions. The rules for additions or changes to the IANA-MALLOC-MIB are outlined in the DESCRIPTION clause associated with its MODULE- IDENTITY statement. The current versions of the IANA-MALLOC-MIB can be accessed from the IANA home page at: "http://www.iana.org/". Thaler Standards Track [Page 32]
RFC 3559 Multicast Address Allocation MIB June 2003 6. Security Considerations There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB module with a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write and/or read-create. Such objects may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. The support for SET operations in a non-secure environment without proper protection can have a negative effect on network operations. These are the tables and objects and their sensitivity/vulnerability: mallocScopeTable,mallocAllocRangeTable: Unauthorized modifications to these tables can result in denial of service by not being able to allocate and use multicast addresses, allocating too many addresses, allocating addresses that other organizations are already using, or causing applications to use a hop limit that results in extra bandwidth usage. mallocScopeNameTable: Unauthorized modifications to this table can result in incorrect or misleading scope names being presented to users, resulting in potentially using the wrong scope for application data. madcapConfigExtraAllocationTime,madcapConfigOfferHold: Unauthorized modifications to these objects can result in reservations lasting too long, potentially resulting in denial of service if allocation ranges are small. madcapConfigNoResponseDelay: Unauthorized modifications can result in a client not being able to allocate multicast addresses. Some of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects with a MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments. It is thus important to control GET and/or NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly to encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over the network via SNMP. These are the tables and objects and their sensitivity/vulnerability: mallocRequestLeaseIdentifier: If address allocation servers are configured to allow renewal or release purely on the basis of knowledge of the Lease Identifier, then unauthorized read access to mallocRequestLeaseIdentifier can be used in a denial-of-service attack. SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security. Even if the network itself is secure (for example by using IPSec), there is no control as to who on the secure network is allowed to Thaler Standards Track [Page 33]
RFC 3559 Multicast Address Allocation MIB June 2003 access and GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB module. It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features as provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8), including full support for the SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms (for authentication and privacy). Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT RECOMMENDED. Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to enable cryptographic security. It is then a customer/operator responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an instance of this MIB module is properly configured for only those principals (users) with legitimate rights to have access to GET or SET (change/create/delete) objects. 7.
