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 managed objects for modeling a Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) [RFC3945] Label Switching Router (LSR). 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 BCP 14, RFC 2119 [RFC2119]. 1.1. Migration Strategy MPLS LSRs may be modeled and managed using the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813]. LSRs may be migrated to be modeled and managed using the MIB modules in this document in order to migrate the LSRs to GMPLS support, or to take advantage of additional MIB objects defined in these MIB modules that are applicable to MPLS-TE. Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 The GMPLS LSR MIB module (GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB), defined in this document, extends the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813] through a series of sparse augmentations of the MIB tables. The only additions are for support of GMPLS or to support the increased complexity of MPLS and GMPLS systems. In order to migrate from MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB support to GMPLS-LSR-STD- MIB support, an implementation needs only to add support for the additional tables and objects defined in GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB. The gmplsInterfaceSignalingCaps object allows an implementation to use the objects and tables of GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB without supporting the GMPLS protocols. The GMPLS Label MIB module (GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB), also defined in this document, allows labels to be configured and examined, and it supports more varieties of labels as appropriate for GMPLS. Labels may be referenced using a row pointer from objects within the GMPLS- LSR-STD-MIB module. MPLS implementations (MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB) may also reference labels held in the GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB module through the various label pointer objects in the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module (such as mplsInSegmentLabelPtr), and may do so without implementing the GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module. The companion document modeling and managing GMPLS-based traffic engineering [RFC4802] extends the MPLS-TE-STD-MIB module [RFC3812] with the same intentions. Textual conventions are defined in [RFC4801], which extends the set of textual conventions originally defined in [RFC3811]. 2. Terminology This document uses terminology from the document describing the MPLS architecture [RFC3031] and the GMPLS architecture [RFC3945]. A Label Switched Path (LSP) is modeled as a connection consisting of one or more incoming segments (in-segments) and/or one or more outgoing segments (out-segments) at an LSR. The association or interconnection of the in-segments and out-segments is accomplished by using a cross-connect. We use the terminology "connection" and "LSP" interchangeably where the meaning is clear from the context. in-segment This is analogous to a GMPLS Label on an interface. out-segment This is analogous to a GMPLS Label on an interface. Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 3]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 cross-connect This describes the conceptual connection between a set of in-segments and out-segments. Note that either set may be empty; for example, a cross-connect may connect only out-segments together with no in-segments in the case where an LSP originates on an LSR. The terms 'ingress' and 'head-end' (or 'head') are used in this document to indicate the signaling source of an LSP. This is sometimes also referred to as the 'sender'. The terms 'egress' and 'tail-end' (or 'tail') are used in this document to indicate the signaling destination of an LSP. The term 'upstream' is used in this document to refer to the part of an LSP that is closer to the ingress than the current point of reference. The term 'downstream' is used in this document to refer to the part of an LSP that is closer to the egress than the current point of reference. The term 'forward' is used in this document to indicate the direction of data flow from the ingress toward the egress. The term 'reverse' is used in this document to indicate the direction of data flow from the egress toward the ingress. 3. 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]. Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 4]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 4. Outline 4.1. MIB Modules There are two MIB modules defined in this document. The GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module contains tables that sparse augment tables defined in the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813]. This MIB module is used in conjunction with the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813] in systems that support GMPLS. The GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB module contains objects for managing GMPLS Labels when they cannot be represented using the textual conventions of the MPLS-TC-STD-MIB module [RFC3811], or when more detailed access to the sub-fields of the labels is required. 4.1.1. Summary of the GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB Module The MIB tables in the GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module are as follows: - The interface configuration table (gmplsInterfaceTable) sparse augments the mplsInterfaceTable [RFC3813] to enable the GMPLS protocol on MPLS-capable interfaces. - The in-segment (gmplsInSegmentTable) and out-segment (gmplsOutSegmentTable) tables sparse augment mplsInSegmentTable and mplsOutSegmentTable [RFC3813] to enable configuration of GMPLS-specific parameters for LSP segments at an LSR. These tables are described in the subsequent sections. 4.1.2. Summary of the GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB Module There is one MIB table in the GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB module as follows: - The gmplsLabelTable allows Generalized Labels to be defined and managed in a central location. Generalized Labels can be of variable length and have distinct bit-by-bit interpretations depending upon how they are defined for the specific technology in which they are used. For example, labels used for MPLS packet switching are different in length and content from labels used in Time Division Multiplexer (TDM) timeslot switching. 4.2. Configuring Statically Provisioned LSPs Configuring statically provisioned GMPLS LSPs through an LSR involves the following steps: Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 5]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 - Configuring an interface using the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813]. - Enabling GMPLS on GMPLS-capable interfaces using the GMPLS-LSR- STD-MIB module in this document. - Configuring in-segments and out-segments using the MPLS-LSR-STD- MIB module [RFC3813]. - Configuring GMPLS extensions to the in-segments and out-segments using the GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module in this document. - Setting up the cross-connect table in the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813] to associate segments and/or to indicate connection origination and termination. - Optionally setting up labels in the label table in the GMPLS- LABEL-STD-MIB module in this document if the textual convention MplsLabel [RFC3811] is not capable of holding the required label (for example, if the label requires more than 32 bits to encode it), or if the operator wishes to disambiguate GMPLS Label types. - Optionally specifying label stack actions in the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813]. - Optionally specifying segment traffic parameters in the MPLS-LSR- STD-MIB module [RFC3813]. 5. Bidirectional LSPs The GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module supports bidirectional LSPs as required for GMPLS. A single value of mplsXCIndex is shared by all of the segments for the entire bidirectional LSP. This facilitates a simple reference from [RFC3812] and [RFC4802] and makes fate-sharing more obvious. It is, however, important that the direction of segments is understood to avoid connecting all in-segments to all out-segments. This is achieved by an object in each segment that indicates the direction of the segment with respect to data flow. A segment that is marked as 'forward' carries data from the 'head' of the LSP to the 'tail'. A segment marked as 'reverse' carries data in the reverse direction. Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 6]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 Where an LSP is signaled using a conventional signaling protocol, the 'head' of the LSP is the source of the signaling (also known as the ingress) and the 'tail' is the destination (also known as the egress). For manually configured LSPs, an arbitrary decision must be made about which segments are 'forward' and which 'reverse'. For consistency, this decision should be made across all LSRs that participate in the LSP by assigning 'head' and 'tail' ends to the LSP. 6. Example of LSP Setup In this section, we provide a brief example of using the MIB objects described in sections 7 and 8 to set up an LSP. While this example is not meant to illustrate every nuance of the MIB modules, it is intended as an aid to understanding some of the key concepts. It is meant to be read after going through the MIB modules themselves. A prerequisite is an understanding of the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB module [RFC3813]. Suppose that one would like to manually create a best-effort, bidirectional LSP. Assume that, in the forward direction, the LSP enters the LSR via MPLS interface A with ifIndex 12 and exits the LSR via MPLS interface B with ifIndex 13. For the reverse direction, we assume that the LSP enters via interface B and leaves via interface A (i.e., the forward and reverse directions use the same bidirectional interfaces). Let us also assume that we do not wish to have a label stack beneath the top label on the outgoing labeled packets. The following example illustrates which rows and corresponding objects might be created to accomplish this. We must first create rows in the gmplsLabelTable corresponding to the labels required for each of the forward- and reverse-direction in- and out-segments. For the purpose of this example, the forward and reverse labels on each interface will be the same, hence we need to create just two rows in the gmplsLabelTable - one for each interface. In gmplsLabelTable: { gmplsLabelInterface = 12, gmplsLabelIndex = 1, gmplsLabelSubindex = 0, gmplsLabelType = gmplsFreeformLabel(3), gmplsLabelFreeform = 0x123456789ABCDEF0 gmplsLabelRowStatus = createAndGo(4) } Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 7]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 In gmplsLabelTable: { gmplsLabelInterface = 13, gmplsLabelIndex = 1, gmplsLabelSubindex = 0, gmplsLabelType = gmplsFreeformLabel(3), gmplsLabelFreeform = 0xFEDCBA9876543210 gmplsLabelRowStatus = createAndGo(4) } We must next create the appropriate in-segment and out-segment entries. These are done in [RFC3813] using the mplsInSegmentTable and mplsOutSegmentTable. Note that we use a row pointer to the two rows in the gmplsLabelTable rather than specify the labels explicitly in the in- and out-segment tables. Also note that the row status for each row is set to createAndWait(5) to allow corresponding entries in the gmplsInSegmentTable and gmplsOutSegmentTable to be created. For the forward direction. In mplsInSegmentTable: { mplsInSegmentIndex = 0x00000015 mplsInSegmentLabel = 0, -- incoming label in label table mplsInSegmentNPop = 1, mplsInSegmentInterface = 12, -- incoming interface -- RowPointer MUST point to the first accessible column. mplsInSegmentTrafficParamPtr = 0.0, mplsInSegmentLabelPtr = gmplsLabelTable(12,1,0) mplsInSegmentRowStatus = createAndWait(5) } In mplsOutSegmentTable: { mplsOutSegmentIndex = 0x00000012, mplsOutSegmentInterface = 13, -- outgoing interface mplsOutSegmentPushTopLabel = true(1), mplsOutSegmentTopLabel = 0, -- outgoing label in label table -- RowPointer MUST point to the first accessible column. mplsOutSegmentTrafficParamPtr = 0.0, mplsOutSegmentLabelPtr = gmplsLabelTable(13,1,0) mplsOutSegmentRowStatus = createAndWait(5) } Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 8]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 For the reverse direction. In mplsInSegmentTable: { mplsInSegmentIndex = 0x00000016 mplsInSegmentLabel = 0, -- incoming label in label table mplsInSegmentNPop = 1, mplsInSegmentInterface = 13, -- incoming interface -- RowPointer MUST point to the first accessible column. mplsInSegmentTrafficParamPtr = 0.0, mplsInSegmentLabelPtr = gmplsLabelTable(13,1,0) mplsInSegmentRowStatus = createAndWait(5) } In mplsOutSegmentTable: { mplsOutSegmentIndex = 0x00000013, mplsOutSegmentInterface = 12, -- outgoing interface mplsOutSegmentPushTopLabel = true(1), mplsOutSegmentTopLabel = 0, -- outgoing label in label table -- RowPointer MUST point to the first accessible column. mplsOutSegmentTrafficParamPtr = 0.0, mplsOutSegmentLabelPtr = gmplsLabelTable(12,1,0) mplsOutSegmentRowStatus = createAndWait(5) } These table entries are extended by entries in the gmplsInSegmentTable and gmplsOutSegmentTable. Note that the nature of the 'extends' relationship is a sparse augmentation so that the entry in the gmplsInSegmentTable has the same index values as the entry in the mplsInSegmentTable. Similarly, the entry in the gmplsOutSegmentTable has the same index values as the entry in the mplsOutSegmentTable. First for the forward direction: In gmplsInSegmentTable(0x00000015) { gmplsInSegmentDirection = forward(1) } In gmplsOutSegmentTable(0x00000012) { gmplsOutSegmentDirection = forward(1) } Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 9]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 Next for the reverse direction: In gmplsInSegmentTable(0x00000016) { gmplsInSegmentDirection = reverse(2) } In gmplsOutSegmentTable(0x00000013) { gmplsOutSegmentDirection = reverse(2) } Next, two cross-connect entries are created in the mplsXCTable of the MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB [RFC3813], thereby associating the newly created segments together. In mplsXCTable: { mplsXCIndex = 0x01, mplsXCInSegmentIndex = 0x00000015, mplsXCOutSegmentIndex = 0x00000012, mplsXCLspId = 0x0102 -- unique ID mplsXCLabelStackIndex = 0x00, -- only a single outgoing label mplsXCRowStatus = createAndGo(4) } In mplsXCTable: { mplsXCIndex = 0x02, mplsXCInSegmentIndex = 0x00000016, mplsXCOutSegmentIndex = 0x00000013, mplsXCLspId = 0x0102 -- unique ID mplsXCLabelStackIndex = 0x00, -- only a single outgoing label mplsXCRowStatus = createAndGo(4) } Finally, the in-segments and out-segments are activated. In mplsInSegmentTable(0x00000015): { mplsInSegmentRowStatus = active(1) } In mplsInSegmentTable(0x00000016): { mplsInSegmentRowStatus = active(1) } Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 10]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 In mplsOutSegmentTable(0x00000012): { mplsOutSegmentRowStatus = active(1) } In mplsOutSegmentTable(0x00000013): { mplsOutSegmentRowStatus = active(1) } 7.

If row creation fails (because another application has already created a row with the supplied index), the management application should read this object again to get a new index value. When a row is created in the gmplsLabelTable with the gmplsLabelIndex value held by this object, an implementation MUST change the value in this object." ::= { gmplsLabelObjects 1 } gmplsLabelTable OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX SEQUENCE OF GmplsLabelEntry MAX-ACCESS not-accessible STATUS current DESCRIPTION "Table of GMPLS Labels. This table allows the representation of the more complex label forms required for GMPLS that cannot be held within the TEXTUAL-CONVENTION MplsLabel; that is, labels that cannot be encoded within 32 bits. It is, nevertheless, also capable of holding 32-bit labels or regular MPLS Labels if desired. Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 23]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 Each entry in this table represents an individual GMPLS Label value. The representation of Labels in tables in other MIB modules may be achieved by a referrence to an entry in this table by means of a row pointer into this table. The indexing of this table provides for arbitrary indexing and also for concatenation of labels. For an example of label concatenation, see RFC 3945, section 7.1. In essence, a GMPLS Label may be composite in order to identify a set of resources in the data plane. Practical examples are timeslots and wavelength sets (which are not contiguous like wavebands). The indexing mechanism allows multiple entries in this table to be seen as a sequence of labels that should be concatenated. Ordering is potentially very sensitive for concatenation." REFERENCE "1.

There are three indexes into the table. - The interface index may be helpful to distinguish which labels are in use on which interfaces or to handle cases where there are a very large number of labels in use in the system. When label representation is desired to apply to the whole system or when it is not important to distinguish labels by their interfaces, this index MAY be set to zero. - The label index provides a way of identifying the label. - The label sub-index is only used for concatenated labels. It identifies each component label. When non-concatenated labels are used, this index SHOULD be set to zero. A storage type object is supplied to control the storage type for each entry, but implementations should note that the storage type of conceptual rows in other tables that include row pointers to an entry in this table SHOULD dictate the storage type of the rows in this table where the row in the other table is more persistent."

Security Considerations It is clear that the MIB modules described in this document in association with MPLS-LSR-STD-MIB [RFC3813] are potentially useful for monitoring of GMPLS LSRs. These MIB modules can also be used for configuration of certain objects, and anything that can be configured can be incorrectly configured, with potentially disastrous results. There are a number of management objects defined in these MIB modules 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: o the gmplsInterfaceTable, gmplsInSegmentTable, gmplsOutSegmentTable, and gmplsLabelTable collectively contain objects to provision GMPLS interfaces, LSPs, and their associated parameters on a Label Switching Router (LSR). Unauthorized write access to objects in these tables could result in disruption of Nadeau & Farrel Standards Track [Page 36]
RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 traffic on the network. This is especially true if an LSP has already been established. Some of the readable objects in these MIB modules (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 gmplsInterfaceTable, gmplsInSegmentTable, gmplsOutSegmentTable, and gmplsLabelTable collectively show the LSP network topology and its capabilities. If an administrator does not want to reveal this information, then these tables should be considered sensitive/vulnerable. 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 these MIB modules. 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. 10.

RFC 4803 GMPLS LSR MIB February 2007 compilation issues. Lars Eggert, Tom Petch, Dan Romascanu, and Bert Wijnen provided useful input in the final stages of review. Joan Cucchiara provided a helpful and very thorough MIB Doctor review. 11. IANA Considerations IANA has rooted MIB objects in the two MIB modules contained in this document under the mplsStdMIB subtree. IANA has made the following assignments in the "NETWORK MANAGEMENT PARAMETERS" registry located at http://www.iana.org/assignments/ smi-numbers in table: ...mib-2.transmission.mplsStdMIB (1.3.6.1.2.1.10.166) Decimal Name References ------- ----- ---------- 15 GMPLS-LSR-STD-MIB [RFC4803] 16 GMPLS-LABEL-STD-MIB [RFC4803] In the future, GMPLS-related standards-track MIB modules should be rooted under the mplsStdMIB (sic) subtree. IANA has been requested to manage that namespace in the SMI Numbers registry [RFC3811]. New assignments can only be made via a Standards Action as specified in [RFC2434]. 12. References 12.1.
