Network Working Group M. Dodge Request for Comments: 4069 ECI Telecom Category: Standards Track B. Ray PESA Switching Systems May 2005 Definitions of Managed Object Extensions for Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Lines (VDSL) Using Single Carrier Modulation (SCM) Line Coding Status of This Memo This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. Copyright Notice Copyright (C) The Internet Society (2005). Abstract This document defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) module for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes objects used for managing the Line Code Specific parameters of Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line (VDSL) interfaces using Single Carrier Modulation (SCM) Line Coding. It is an optional extension to the VDSL-LINE-MIB, RFC 3728, which handles line code independent objects. Dodge & Ray Standards Track [Page 1]

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]. 2. Overview This document describes an SNMP MIB module for managing the Line Code Dependent, Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) Layer of SCM VDSL Lines. These definitions are based upon the specifications for VDSL as defined in T1E1, European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), and International Telecommunication Union (ITU) documentation [T1E1311, T1E1011, T1E1013, ETSI2701, ETSI2702, ITU9931, ITU9971]. Additionally the protocol-dependent (and line-code dependent) management framework for VDSL lines specified by the Digital Subscriber Line Forum (DSLF) has been taken into consideration [DSLFTR57] and [DSLFWT96]. Dodge & Ray Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 4069 VDSL-LINE-EXT-SCM-MIB May 2005 The MIB module is located in the MIB tree under MIB-2 transmission. The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "RECOMMENDED", and "SHOULD" in this document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119]. 2.1. Relationship of this MIB Module to Other MIB Modules The relationship of the VDSL Line MIB module to other MIB modules, in particular to the IF-MIB presented in RFC 2863 [RFC2863], is discussed in the VDSL-LINE-MIB, RFC 3728 [RFC3728]. This section outlines the relationship of this VDSL Line Extension MIB to the VDSL-LINE-MIB, RFC 3728 [RFC3728]. 2.2. Conventions Used in the MIB Module 2.2.1. Naming Conventions A. Vtuc -- VDSL transceiver unit at near (Central) end of line B. Vtur -- VDSL transceiver unit at Remote end of line C. Vtu -- One of either Vtuc or Vtur D. Curr -- Current F. Atn -- Attenuation J. LCS -- Line Code Specific K. Max -- Maximum Q. Mgn -- Margin S. PSD -- Power Spectral Density T. Rx -- Receive T. Snr -- Signal to Noise Ratio U. Tx -- Transmit 2.3. Structure The SCM VDSL Line Extension MIB contains the following MIB group: o vdslSCMGroup : This group supports MIB objects for defining configuration profiles and for monitoring individual bands of Single Carrier Modulation (SCM) VDSL modems. It contains the following tables: - vdslLineSCMConfProfileTxBandTable - vdslSCMPhysBandTable If the SCM VDSL Line Extension MIB is implemented then all objects in this group MUST be implemented. Figure 1 below displays the relationship of the tables in the vdslSCMGroup to the vdslGroup and to the ifEntry: Dodge & Ray Standards Track [Page 3]
RFC 4069 VDSL-LINE-EXT-SCM-MIB May 2005 ifEntry(ifType=97) ----> vdslLineTableEntry 1:(0..1) vdslLineTableEntry (vdslLineCoding=SCM) ----> vdslPhysTableEntry 1:(0..2) ----> vdslSCMPhysBandTable 1:(0..5) vdslLineConfProfileEntry(vdslLineConfProfileName) ----> vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandTable 1:(0..5) Figure 1: Table Relationships When the object vdslLineCoding is set to SCM, vdslLineConfProfileName is used as the index to vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandTable. The existence of an entry in any of the tables of the vdslSCMGroup is optional. 2.4. Persistence All read-create objects defined in this MIB module SHOULD be stored persistently. Following is an exhaustive list of these persistent objects: vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandId vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandUsage vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandCenterFrequency vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandSymbolRate vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandConstellationSize vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandTransmitPSDLevel vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandRowStatus vdslLineSCMPhysBandId vdslLineSCMPhysBandUsage vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrPSDLevel vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrSymbolRate vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrConstellationSize vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrCenterFrequency vdslLineSCMPhysBandPerformanceBandId vdslLineSCMPhysBandPerformanceBandUsage vdslLineSCMPhysBandPerformanceBandSnrMgn vdslLineSCMPhysBandPerformanceBandAtn Note also that the interface indices in this MIB are maintained persistently. View-based Access Control Model (VACM) data relating to these SHOULD be stored persistently as well [RFC3415]. Dodge & Ray Standards Track [Page 4]
RFC 4069 VDSL-LINE-EXT-SCM-MIB May 2005 3. Conformance and Compliance An SCM based VDSL agent does not have to implement this MIB to be compliant with RFC 3728 [RFC3728]. If the SCM VDSL Line Extension MIB is implemented then the following group is mandatory: - vdslSCMGroup 4.

Acknowledgments This document contains many definitions taken from an early version of the VDSL MIB [RFC3728]. As such, any credit for the text found within should be fully attributed to the authors of that document. 6. Security Considerations There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB module with a MAX-ACCESS clause of 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: vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandTable vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandInUse, vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandTransmitPSDLevel, vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandSymbolRate, Dodge & Ray Standards Track [Page 14]
RFC 4069 VDSL-LINE-EXT-SCM-MIB May 2005 vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandConstellationSize, vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandCenterFrequency, vdslLineSCMConfProfileBandRowStatus VDSL layer connectivity from the Vtur will permit the subscriber to manipulate both the VDSL link directly and the VDSL embedded operations channel (EOC) for their own loop. For example, unchecked or unfiltered fluctuations initiated by the subscriber could generate sufficient notifications to potentially overwhelm either the management interface to the network or the element manager. Additionally, allowing write access to configuration data may allow an end-user to increase their service levels or affect other end- users in either a positive or negative manner. For this reason, the tables and objects listed above should be considered to contain sensitive information. 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: vdslLineSCMPhysBandInUse, vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrPSDLevel, vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrSymbolRate, vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrConstellationSize, vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrCenterFrequency, vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrSnrMgn, vdslLineSCMPhysBandCurrAtn Read access of the physical band parameters may provide knowledge to an end-user that would allow malicious behavior, for example the application of an intentional interference on one or all of the physical bands in use. 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). Dodge & Ray Standards Track [Page 15]
RFC 4069 VDSL-LINE-EXT-SCM-MIB May 2005 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 a 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. 7.
