Introduction This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes a set of managed objects that allow monitoring of running instances of robust header compression. The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14, RFC 2119 [RFC2119]. 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 Quittek, et al. Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 3816 ROHC MIB June 2004 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 This section describes the basic model of RObust Header Compression (ROHC, [RFC3095]) used when developing the MIB modules for ROHC described in the following sections. ROHC presents a framework for IP header compression that allows flexible adjustment of compression efficiency versus robustness against channel errors depending on the underlying channel characteristics. ROHC introduces header compressors/decompressors at the end-points (interfaces) of (wireless) channels on which packets with compressed headers are transferred. ROHC exploits the temporal redundancy in successive packet headers of a packet flow by storing non-changing fields of the headers as well as reference values of predictably changing fields as context information. When the context information for a packet flow is also established at the decompressor, only delta-information and unpredictably changing header fields have to be sent over the channel. This document specifies MIB modules in order to provide a means for managing ROHC implementations via SNMP and within the IETF management framework. The objects defined support configuration management, fault management and performance monitoring. For configuration management implementation parameters (see Section 6.3 of [RFC3095]) and configuration parameters (including the ones specified in Section 5.1.1 of [RFC3095] and in Section 5.1.1 of [RFC3242]) can be verified by using the MIB modules specified below. For fault management compressor/decompressor state and mode can be checked. For performance management a set of statistics is provided including the number of flows that have used ROHC, the current and long term compression ratio, the number of reinitializations and the number of packets sent or received with different header types. 4. Structure of the MIB modules This section presents the structure of the MIB modules that are specified in Section 5. Basically, the MIB is structured according to the ROHC architecture described in [RFC3759]. Quittek, et al. Standards Track [Page 3]
RFC 3816 ROHC MIB June 2004 ROHC is an evolving technology. [RFC3095] specifies the header compression framework and four profiles: uncompressed, RTP, UDP, and ESP (Real-Time Transport Protocol, User Datagram Protocol, Encapsulating Security Payload). [RFC3242] specifies a profile with additional link layer assistance called LLA (Link Layer Assisted). A profile for compression of TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) flows is under development within the ROHC working group and SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) compression is being discussed as potential next candidate. Therefore, the managed objects defined below are structured into three MIB modules: the general ROHC-MIB module and the profile-specific ROHC-UNCOMPRESSED-MIB and ROHC-RTP- MIB modules. This flexible approach allows to support future profiles each by its own profile-specific module. The ROHC-MIB module defines properties of information on ROHC instances, ROHC channels, ROHC profiles, and ROHC compressor and decompressor contexts. All managed objects in this module are assumed to be shared by all profiles. The ROHC-UNCOMPRESSED-MIB module extends the ROHC-MIB by managed objects that are specific to the ROHC uncompressed profile 0x0000 defined in [RFC3095]. The ROHC-RTP-MIB module extends the ROHC-MIB by managed objects that are specific to the three profiles defined in [RFC3095] (ROHC RTP profile 0x0001, ROHC UDP profile 0x0002, and ROHC ESP profile 0x0003), and to the ROHC LLA profile 0x0005 defined in [RFC3242]. An analysis of these profiles showed that they are tightly related and can share most of the managed objects in the ROHC-UNCOMPRESSED-MIB module. Therefore, a joint module for all of them was preferred to individual modules. The number of managed objects in the ROHC-UNCOMPRESSED-MIB Module and the ROHC-RTP-MIB Module is rather small. They contain context state and context mode, and profile-specific context statistics. It is assumed that MIB modules for future profiles, such as TCP and SCTP, will be similarly small and easy to design. 4.1. The ROHC-MIB module The ROHC-MIB module defines managed objects that are expected to be useful for all current and future ROHC profiles. Objects in the ROHC-MIB module are arranged into four tables: the rohcChannelTable, the rohcInstanceTable, the rohcProfileTable, and the rohcContextTable. The managed objects in the first three tables are rather static (except for provided statistics), while the objects in the rohcContextTable are more dynamic. Quittek, et al. Standards Track [Page 4]
RFC 3816 ROHC MIB June 2004 All tables are indexed by the IP interface number and by a numeric channel identifier. The channel identifier is used for channels to which compressors and decompressors are attached (called ROHC channels in [RFC3759]), as well as for dedicated feedback channels (called ROHC feedback channels in [RFC3759]). Compressor and decompressor instances are further indexed by their type (either compressor or decompressor). Contexts are indexed by the same index as their corresponding instance and their individual context identifier (CID). 4.1.1. rohcChannelTable The rohcChannelTable lists all channels used by ROHC instances for transferring compressed packets and/or for giving feedback from the decompressor to the compressor. Listed channels are either ROHC channels or feedback channels as defined in [RFC3759]. The channels are listed per IP interface. The information per channel in the rohcChannelTable includes o the channel ID, o the channel type, either 'notInUse', 'rohc', or 'dedicatedFeedback', o the channel for which feedback is provided by this channel (if applicable), o a string for describing the channel, and o the status of the channel being either 'enabled' or 'disabled'. 4.1.2. rohcInstanceTable The rohcInstanceTable defines properties of ROHC compressor instances and ROHC decompressor instances. As described in [RFC3759], an instance is associated with exactly one channel and only one instance can be associated with the same channel. Therefore, the same index consisting of ifIndex and rohcChannelID could have been used for both tables. But when accessing the rohcInstanceTable (and the rohcContextTable that shares a part of its index with the rohcInstanceTable) there are many cases where either a compressor contexts or a decompressor contexts are of interest. Therefore, the rohcInstanceType indicating either a compressor or a decompressor was added to the table's index. This allows listing all compressors without accessing any decompressor. Quittek, et al. Standards Track [Page 5]
RFC 3816 ROHC MIB June 2004 Note that still the combination of ifIndex and rohcChannelID uniquely identifies an instance. It is always possible to directly identify and access the channel corresponding to a given instance. The set of instance properties in the rochInstanceTable includes o the vendor of the implementation, version number and description, o the channels used for compressed packets and for feedback, o implementation and configuration properties including clock resolution, maximum context identifier number (MAX_CID), the LARGE_CIDS flag, and the Maximum Reconstructed Reception Unit (MRRU), o the storage time for contexts created by this instance, o the status of the instance (operational or not). Optionally, the rohcInstanceTable also contains instance statistics including o the total number of compressed flows, o the current number of compressed flows, o the total number of packets passing this instance o the total number of static Initialization and Refreshes (IRs) passing this instance o the total number of dynamic Initialization and Refreshes (IR-DYNs) passing this instance, and o the total compression ratio achieved on the channel. Instances are listed per IP interface. 4.1.3. rohcProfileTable The rohcProfileTable lists available profiles per instance including information on o the profile number, o the vendor and version number, and o a string describing the profile. Quittek, et al. Standards Track [Page 6]
RFC 3816 ROHC MIB June 2004 o a flag indicating whether or not using this profile has been negotiated with the corresponding (de)compressor. 4.1.4. rohcContextTable The rohcContextTable lists compressor contexts or decompressor contexts per instance and context identifier (CID). Each row of this table represents a context. If a new context is created, also a new row in this table is created. After expiration or termination of a context, the row will continue to exist until the context's storage time expires or until the CID is re-used. Then the row will be deleted. For each context, the following attributes are listed: o the type of context ('compressor' or 'decompressor'), also used as part of the table index, o the CID, o the state of the CID ('unused', 'active', 'expired', or 'terminated'), also used as part of the table index, o the used profile, o in case of a decompressor: the decompressor depth, and o the storage time. Optionally, context statistics is provided including o activation and deactivation time of the context, o the number of packets sent or received, respectively, o the numbers of IRs and IR-DYNs sent or received, respectively, o the number of feedbacks sent or received, respectively, o in case of a decompressor context: the numbers of decompressor failures and repairs, o the total compression ratio of all packets passing this context, o the total compression ratio of all packet headers compressed in this context, Quittek, et al. Standards Track [Page 7]
RFC 3816 ROHC MIB June 2004 o the mean compressed packet size of all packets passing this context, o the mean header size of all compressed headers passing this context, o the compression ratio of the last 16 packets passing this context, o the compression ratio of the last 16 packet headers compressed in this context, o the mean compressed packet size of the last 16 packets passing this context, o the mean header size of the last 16 compressed headers passing this context. 4.2. The ROHC-UNCOMPRESSED-MIB module The ROHC-UNCOMPRESSED-MIB module defines managed objects that are specific to ROHC uncompressed profile (0x0000) specified in [RFC3095]. 4.2.1. rohcUncmprContextTable The rohcUncmprContextTable extends the rohcContextTable. It provides information on state and mode of the compressor for profile 0x0000. Optionally, it also provides a counter of ACK feedbacks sent or received by the context, respectively. 4.3. The ROHC-RTP-MIB module The ROHC-RTP-MIB module defines managed objects that are specific to three profiles specified in [RFC3095] (ROHC RTP profile 0x0001, ROHC UDP profile 0x0002, and ROHC ESP profile 0x0003) and to the ROHC LLA profile 0x0005 specified in [RFC3242]. The ROHC-RTP-MIB contains two tables, the rohcRtpContextTable and the rohcRtpPacketSizeTable. 4.3.1. rohcRtpContextTable The rohcRtpContextTable extends the rohcContextTable. It provides information on context state and context mode for profiles 0x0001 - 0x0003 and 0x0005. For compressor contexts it optionally contains managed object containing the numbers of allowed and used packet sizes. As further option, counters of the numbers of ACKs, NACKs, and SNACKs in this context are specified. Quittek, et al. Standards Track [Page 8]
RFC 3816 ROHC MIB June 2004 4.3.2. rohcPacketSizeTable The optional rohcPacketSizeTable lists per compressor context the allowed packet sizes for profiles ROHC RTP, ROHC UDP, ROHC ESP, or the preferred packet sizes for ROHC LLA, respectively. Allowed packet sizes are marked if they are used. For preferred packet sizes, it is indicated whether the preferred size applies to NHP only, to RHP only or to all packets. 5.

RFC 3816 ROHC MIB June 2004 6. Security Considerations The managed objects defined by the ROHC-MIB module, the ROHC- UNCOMPRESSED-MIB module and the ROHC-RTP-MIB module do not have a MAX-ACCESS value of read-write and/or read-create except rohcInstanceContextStorageTime and rohcContextStorageTime, both of which have a MAX-ACCESS value of read-write. These objects determine how long context information is stored after its termination. Unauthorized access to these objects can have one of two negative effects. If they are set to a value lower than required, e.g., to zero, then context information about past contexts might get lost. If they are set to a very high value, then context information will not be deleted and memory consumption of the agent implementation might become very high. However, unauthorized access to these objects cannot cause harm to existing ROHC connections nor can it allow manipulation of running instances of ROHC in a malicious way. Another security issue is unauthorized access to readable objects in the MIB modules for getting information about existing communication sessions. It is thus important to control even GET and/or NOTIFY access to these objects and possibly to even encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over the network via SNMP. However, the only information that might be disclosed is the use of channels. Users and their addresses are not visible in the MIB. This information can only be mis-used in conjunction with the mis-use of further information. SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security. Even if the network itself is secure (for example by using IPSec), even then, there is no control as to who on the secure network is allowed to 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 to give access to the objects only to those principals (users) that have legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them.
