RFC 8150              MPLS-TP Linear Protection MIB           April 2017

1. Introduction

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols. In particular, it defines objects for managing Multiprotocol Label Switching - Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) linear protection.

This MIB module should be used for configuring and managing MPLS-TP linear protection for MPLS-TP Label Switched Paths (LSPs).

At the time of this writing, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) SET is no longer recommended as a way to configure MPLS networks as described in RFC 3812 [RFC3812]. However, since the MIB module specified in this document is intended to work in parallel with the MIB module for MPLS specified in [RFC3812] and the MIB module for MPLS-TP Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) identifiers in RFC 7697 [RFC7697], certain objects defined here are specified with a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write or read-create so that specifications of the base tables in [RFC3812] and [RFC7697] and the new MIB module in this document are consistent.


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. Conventions

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].

RFC 8150              MPLS-TP Linear Protection MIB           April 2017

4. Overview

RFC 6378 [RFC6378] defines the protocol to provide a linear protection switching mechanism for MPLS-TP for a point-to-point LSP within the protection domain bounded by the endpoints of the LSP. RFC 7271 [RFC7271] describes alternative mechanisms to perform some of the functions defined in [RFC6378] and also defines additional mechanisms to provide operator control and experience that more closely model the behavior of linear protection seen in other transport networks. Two modes are defined for MPLS-TP linear protection switching: the Protection State Coordination (PSC) mode and the Automatic Protection Switching (APS) mode, as specified in [RFC6378] and [RFC7271], respectively. The detailed protocol specification of MPLS-TP linear protection is described in [RFC6378] and [RFC7271].

This document specifies a MIB module for Label Edge Routers (LERs) that support MPLS-TP linear protection as described in [RFC6378] and [RFC7271]. Objects defined in this document are generally applied to both the PSC mode and the APS mode. If an object is valid for a particular mode only, it is noted in the description for the object.


5. Structure of the MIB Module
5.1.  Textual Conventions

The following new textual conventions are defined in this document:

o MplsLpsReq: This textual convention describes an object that stores the PSC Request field of the PSC control packet.

o MplsLpsFpathPath: This textual convention describes an object that stores the Fault Path (FPath) field and Data Path (Path) field of the PSC control packet.

o MplsLpsCommand: This textual convention describes an object that allows a user to perform any action over a protection domain.

o MplsLpsState: This textual convention describes an object that stores the current state of the PSC state machine.
5.2.  The MPLS-TP Linear Protection Switching Subtree

MPLS-LPS-MIB is the MIB module defined in this document. It is rooted under the mplsStdMIB subtree per [RFC3811]. "LPS" as used in this document means "Linear Protection Switching".

Kingston Smiler, et al. Standards Track [Page 4]


RFC 8150              MPLS-TP Linear Protection MIB           April 2017
5.3.  The Notifications Subtree

Notifications are defined to inform the management station about switchovers, provisioning mismatches, and protocol failures of the linear protection domain. The following notifications are defined for this purpose:

o The notification mplsLpsEventSwitchover informs the management station about the switchover of the active path.

o The notification mplsLpsEventRevertiveMismatch informs the management station about a provisioning mismatch in the revertive mode across the endpoint of the protection domain.

o The notification mplsLpsEventProtecTypeMismatch informs the management station about a provisioning mismatch in the protection type, representing both the bridge type and the switching type, across the endpoint of the protection domain.

o The notification mplsLpsEventCapabilitiesMismatch informs the management station about a provisioning mismatch in Capabilities TLVs across the endpoint of the protection domain.

o The notification mplsLpsEventPathConfigMismatch informs the management station about a provisioning mismatch in the protection path configuration for PSC communication.

o The notification mplsLpsEventFopNoResponse informs the management station that protocol failure has occurred due to a lack of response to a traffic switchover request in 50 ms.

o The notification mplsLpsEventFopTimeout informs the management station that protocol failure has occurred because no protocol message was received during at least 3.5 times the long PSC message interval [RFC7271].
5.4.  The Table Structures

The MPLS-TP linear protection MIB module has four tables. The tables are as follows:

o mplsLpsConfigTable

This table is used to configure MPLS-TP linear protection domains. An MPLS-TP linear protection domain (or a protection domain) is identified by mplsLpsConfigDomainIndex. A protection domain consists of two LERs, as well as the working path and protection path that connect the two LERs. The objects in this table are used to configure properties that are specific to the protection domain. Two Maintenance Entities (MEs) MUST be defined for each protection domain: one for the working path and the other for the protection path. Therefore, two entries in the mplsLpsMeConfigTable, which is for configuring the MEs used in protection switching, are associated to one entry in this table.


Kingston Smiler, et al.      Standards Track                    [Page 5]


RFC 8150              MPLS-TP Linear Protection MIB           April 2017



o mplsLpsStatusTable

This table provides the current status information of MPLS-TP linear protection domains that have been configured on the system. The entries in the mplsLpsStatusTable have an AUGMENTS relationship with the entries in the mplsLpsConfigTable. When a protection domain is configured or deleted in the mplsLpsConfigTable, then the corresponding row of that session in the mplsLpsStatusTable is automatically created or deleted, respectively.

o mplsLpsMeConfigTable

This table is used to associate MEs to the protection domain. Each protection domain requires two MEs. One entry in the mplsLpsConfigTable is associated with two entries in this table: one for the working path and the other for the protection path of the protection domain. The mplsLpsMeConfigPath object in this table indicates that the path is either the working path or the protection path. The ME is identified by mplsOamIdMegIndex, mplsOamIdMeIndex, and mplsOamIdMeMpIndex, which are the same index values as the entry in the mplsOamIdMeTable defined in [RFC7697].

The relationship to the mplsOamIdMeTable is described in
Section 6.1.

o mplsLpsMeStatusTable

This table provides current information about the protection status of MEs that have been configured on the system. When an ME is configured or deleted in the mplsLpsMeConfigTable, then the corresponding row of that session in the mplsLpsMeStatusTable is automatically created or deleted, respectively.

Kingston Smiler, et al. Standards Track [Page 6]


RFC 8150              MPLS-TP Linear Protection MIB           April 2017

6. Relationship to Other MIB Modules
6.1.  Relationship to the MPLS OAM Identifiers MIB Module

Entries in the mplsOamIdMeTable [RFC7697] are extended by entries in the mplsLpsMeConfigTable. Note that the nature of the "extends" relationship is a sparse augmentation so that the entry in the mplsLpsMeConfigTable has the same index values as the entry in the mplsOamIdMeTable. Each time that an entry is created in the mplsOamIdMeTable for which the LER supports MPLS-TP linear protection, a row is created automatically in the mplsLpsMeConfigTable.

When a point-to-point transport path needs to be monitored, one ME is needed for the path and one entry in the mplsOamIdMeTable will be created. But the ME entry in the mplsOamIdMeTable may or may not participate in protection switching. If an ME participates in protection switching, an entry in the mplsLpsMeConfigTable MUST be created, and the objects in the entry indicate which protection domain this ME belongs to and whether this ME is for the working path or the protection path. If the ME does not participate in protection switching, an entry in the mplsLpsMeConfigTable does not need to be created.


7. Example of Protection Switching Configuration

This example considers the protection domain configuration on an LER to provide protection for a co-routed bidirectional MPLS tunnel. For the working path and protection path of the protection domain, two Maintenance Entity Groups (MEGs) need to be configured, and each MEG contains one ME for a point-to-point transport path. For more information on the mplsOamIdMegTable and the mplsOamIdMeTable, see [RFC7697].

Although the example described in this section shows a way to configure linear protection for MPLS-TP tunnels, this also indicates how the MIB values would be returned if they had been configured by alternative means. The following table configures a protection domain.

Kingston Smiler, et al. Standards Track [Page 7]


RFC 8150              MPLS-TP Linear Protection MIB           April 2017

In the mplsLpsConfigTable: mplsLpsConfigEntry ::= SEQUENCE { -- Protection domain index (index to the table) mplsLpsConfigDomainIndex = 3, -- Protection domain name mplsLpsConfigDomainName = "LPDomain3", mplsLpsConfigMode = psc(1), mplsLpsConfigProtectionType = oneColonOneBidirectional(2), -- Mandatory parameters needed to activate the row go here mplsLpsConfigRowStatus = createAndGo(4) }

The following table associates the MEs with the protection domain.

In the mplsLpsMeConfigTable: MplsLpsMeConfigEntry ::= SEQUENCE { -- MEG index (index to the table) mplsOamIdMegIndex = 1, -- ME index (index to the table) mplsOamIdMeIndex = 1, -- Maintenance Point (MP) index (index to the table) mplsOamIdMeMpIndex = 1, -- Protection domain this ME belongs to mplsLpsMeConfigDomain = 3, -- Configuration state mplsLpsMeConfigPath = working(1) } { -- MEG index (index to the table) mplsOamIdMegIndex = 2, -- ME index (index to the table) mplsOamIdMeIndex = 2, -- MP index (index to the table) mplsOamIdMeMpIndex = 2, -- Protection domain this ME belongs to mplsLpsMeConfigDomain = 3, -- Configuration state mplsLpsMeConfigPath = protection(2)

mplsLpsConfigProtectionType OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX INTEGER {
onePlusOneUnidirectional(1), oneColonOneBidirectional(2), onePlusOneBidirectional(3) } MAX-ACCESS read-create STATUS current DESCRIPTION
"The protection architecture type of the protection domain.
This object represents both the bridge type, which can be either a permanent bridge (1+1) or a selector bridge (1:1); and the switching scheme, which can be either unidirectional or bidirectional.

1+1 In the 1+1 protection scheme, a fully dedicated protection path is allocated. Data traffic is copied and fed at the source to both the working path and the protection path. The traffic on the working path and protection path is transmitted simultaneously to the sink of the protection domain, where selection between the working path and the protection path is performed.

1:1 In the 1:1 protection scheme, a protection path is allocated to protect against a defect, failure, or degradation on the working path. In normal conditions, data traffic is transmitted over the working path, while the protection path functions in the idle state. If there is a defect on the working path or a specific administrative request, traffic is switched to the protection path.

bidirectional In the bidirectional protection scheme, both directions will be switched simultaneously even if the fault applies to only one direction of the path.

unidirectional In the unidirectional protection scheme, protection switching will be performed independently for each direction of a bidirectional transport path.

This object may not be modified if the associated mplsLpsConfigRowStatus object is equal to active(1)."

9. 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 opens devices to attack. These are the tables and objects and their sensitivity/vulnerability:

o The mplsLpsConfigTable is used to configure MPLS-TP linear protection domains. Improper manipulation of the objects in this table may result in different behaviors than what network operators originally intended, such as delaying traffic switching or causing a race condition with server-layer protection after network failure (mplsLpsConfigHoldOff), delaying or speeding up reversion after recovering from network failure (mplsLpsConfigWaitToRestore), unexpected traffic switching (mplsLpsConfigCommand), or the discontinuance of the operation of a protection switching control process (mplsLpsConfigMode, mplsLpsConfigProtectionType).

o The mplsLpsMeConfigTable is used to assign each ME to either the working path or the protection path. Improper manipulation of this object may result in the discontinuance of the operation of a protection switching control process.

o The notification is controlled by the mplsLpsNotificationEnable object. In the case of the discontinuance of a protection switching control process, network operators may not be notified if the mplsLpsNotificationEnable object is compromised.

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 mplsLpsStatusTable and the mplsLpsMeStatusTable collectively show the history and current status of the MPLS-TP linear protection domains. They can be used to estimate the performance and qualities of networks configured to use MPLS-TP linear protection. 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), 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.




Kingston Smiler, et al.      Standards Track                   [Page 43]


RFC 8150              MPLS-TP Linear Protection MIB           April 2017



Implementations SHOULD provide the security features described by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410]), and implementations claiming compliance to the SNMPv3 standard MUST include full support for authentication and privacy via the User-based Security Model (USM) [RFC3414] with the AES cipher algorithm [RFC3826]. Implementations MAY also provide support for the Transport Security Model (TSM) [RFC5591] in combination with a secure transport such as SSH [RFC5592] or TLS/DTLS [RFC6353].

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. IANA Considerations

IANA has assigned an OID of decimal 22 for the MPLS Linear Protection MIB module (MPLS-LPS-MIB) specified in this document in the "MIB Transmission Group - MPLS STD MIB" subregistry of the "Internet-standard MIB - Transmission Group" registry.
