Re: [Security and Efficiency Enhancements for IEEE 802.15.4e]

Abstract:[This document provides an overview of security and efficiency enhancements for 802.15.4e, based on the streamlined version of Clauses 7.2, 7.5.6.2, 7.5.8 and 7.6 of IEEE 802.15.4-2006.]

Purpose:[Security and efficiency enhancements of IEEE 802.15.4-2006.]

Status edits

Status Edits

Draft edits originally submitted in FrameMaker (August 15, 2009)

Edits currently converted into Word, as requested by Editor (Ludwig Winkel)

  • No 802.15.4-2006 available in Word, so “hand-conversions”

René Struik (Certicom Research)


Ack mechanism

ACK mechanism

Clause 7.5.6.2

802.15.4-2006:

ACK sent after third level filtering, but prior to incoming security processing (since

ACKs not secured)

802.15.4e:

ACK sent after third level filtering and incoming security processing (no matter

whether secured or not)

Time delay for ACKs:

  • unsecured: keep as is

  • Secured: 1ms

    Notes: This should allow sufficient time for incoming processing and securing ACK)

    Clause 7.5.8.2.3incoming security processing for all frame types, including ACKs

René Struik (Certicom Research)


Security processing

Security processing

Clause 7.5.8.2.3

802.15.4-2006:

Incoming security frame processing does not treat devices with diplomatic immunity

(“Exempt status”) properly.

802.15.4e:

Incoming security frame processing does correct this error.

Cf. also 08/849r0.

Question for discussion:

There seem to be two options:

  • Address in Corrigendum to 802.15.4-2006 (after which 802.15.4e is Addendum);

  • Address via versioning (which would keep this an Addendum).

René Struik (Certicom Research)


Headers

Headers

Clause 7.2

802.15.4-2006:

  • Frame header includes some addressing fields

  • Frame header has 2-octet FCF field.

    802.15.4e:

  • Frame header without addressing fields possible

  • Frame header may have 1-octet or 2-octet FCF field.

    Ref: 09/233r4, 09/604r3, 09/768r0

    Topic for discussion:

    Unify underlying objectives header reduction {4e, 4f}.

  • Keep functionality supported by 802.1.54-2006;

  • Allow as broad applicability of 1-octet FCF as possible;

  • Keep reserved frame types for future use;

  • Allow muting addressing fields {4f, ACK, low latency}
