RFC 4624 MSDP MIB October 2006 1. Introduction This memo defines an experimental portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP) [1] speakers. 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 [7]. 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 [4], STD 58, RFC 2579 [5] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [6]. 3. Overview This MIB module contains four scalars and four tables, one deprecated. The tables are: o The deprecated Requests Table, containing the longest-match table used to determine the peer to send SA-Requests to for a given group. This table is deprecated because Requests were removed from MSDP before it became an RFC. o The Peer Table, containing information on the system's peers. o The Source-Active (SA) Cache Table, containing the SA cache entries. o The Mesh Group Table, containing the list of MSDP mesh groups to which this system belongs. This MIB module uses the IpAddress SYNTAX, making it only suitable for IPv4 systems. Although the desired direction for MIBs is to use InetAddressType/InetAddress pairs to allow both IPv4 and IPv6 (and future formats as well), the MSDP protocol itself is IPv4-only, and the MSDP working group made an explicit decision not to create an IPv6 version of the protocol. Fenner & Thaler Experimental [Page 2]
RFC 4624 MSDP MIB October 2006 This MIB module is somewhat disorganized, with scalars before and after tables, holes in the OID space, tables with the RowStatus in the middle, and so on. This is because objects were added and removed as necessary as the MSDP protocol evolved, and the plan was to renumber the whole MIB when moving to the standard mib-2 tree. The MSDP Working Group then changed direction, publishing the MSDP protocol as Experimental. Since there were existing implementations using the strange object order under the experimental OID, the WG decided not to renumber the MIB and to publish it as experimental, keeping the experimental OID. 4.

RFC 4624 MSDP MIB October 2006 5. 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: msdpEnabled Obviously, by modifying msdpEnabled, an attacker could simply disable MSDP processing on the router. msdpCacheLifetime If allowed to modify msdpCacheLifetime, an attacker could set the value to a value lower than a peer's refresh interval, causing all state to time out and be refreshed. msdpRequestsPeer, msdpRequestsStatus If allowed to modify entries in the msdpRequestsTable, an attacker could cause this system to send MSDP Requests to an unknown system, or could simply remove the proper configuration. Note that the msdpRequestsTable is deprecated, and the MSDP Request functionality is not in the published MSDP spec. msdpPeerTable objects The writable objects in the msdpPeerTable are: msdpPeerLocalAddress, msdpPeerConnectRetryInterval, msdpPeerHoldTimeConfigured, msdpPeerKeepAliveConfigured, msdpPeerDataTtl, msdpPeerProcessRequestsFrom, msdpPeerStatus, and msdpPeerEncapsulationType. Of these, modifying msdpPeerIpAddress and msdpPeerStatus could cause a changed or deleted peer configuration. Modifying any of the other values could cause subtle protocol misbehavior. msdpSACacheStatus This writable object can be used to remove valid values from the router's SA cache. msdpRPAddress Changing this object can cause a failure of the Peer-RPF rules for SA messages sourced by this router. msdpMeshGroupStatus This object can be used to change this router's idea of its mesh group membership and those of its peers. Misconfiguration of mesh groups can cause subtle protocol misbehavior. Fenner & Thaler Experimental [Page 28]
RFC 4624 MSDP MIB October 2006 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 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. These are the tables and objects and their sensitivity/vulnerability: o The entire msdpPeerTable. Peer information can result in discovering internal topology, which many want to keep secret. o msdpNumSACacheEntries. The size of the SA Cache could reveal whether this system has MSDP entries for public and/or private groups. o The entire msdpSACacheTable. The active sources and groups in a network could be private. o The entire msdpMeshGroupTable. This information can also lead to internal topology 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 [6], 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. 6. IANA Considerations Since this MIB is for an experimental protocol, it uses an experimental OID.
