Proposed changes:

 

  1. Be prescriptive about whether quotes are required around the ppt parameter value or not

  2. Make info param optional when using full form PASSporTs to make OOB easier for transit providers

  3. Allow info param to match claims other than x5u (e.g., jku, etc.) to support DLT and other future PASSporT extensions that don’t use x5u

  4. Make the Date header optional

 

I’m not following the SIPS recommendation for privacy due to the PASSporT. The destination number, origination number, etc. are already in the SIP signaling. How does the PASSporT add sensitive data?

 

Sincerely,

Roman,

 

Is there text that I missed that makes the Date header required?

 

Let me rephrase my first proposed change:

 

  1. The document should be prescriptive about whether quotes are required around the ppt parameter value or not

Alec,

 

I would also like to add:

 

1. The Date header should be optional when full PASSporT is used. The iat in PASSporT should provide enough protection for cut-and-paste attacks.

2. I think privacy considerations should be added that recommend using SIPS since the data carried in PASSporT is likely considered personally identifiable information and should not be transmitted in encrypted form.

 

Still, I wouldn't say I like quotes around the ppt param value since this parameter differs from every other token parameter in SIP headers.

Alec,

 

My personal opinion is that we should try to organize an open SipIt interop event for both STIR and SHAKEN implementations. Based on the interop results, it might be good to do a new version of RFC 8224.

 

Meanwhile, we really need this errata so that we can deal with current interop issues.

 

Best Regards,

Jon,

 

Understood. Then maybe we could just leave it as is until RFC 8224 is updated? Is there any implementation out there that doesn’t support receiving with or without quotes?

I mean, no, it’s just pushy. It’s the same reason we don’t propose that you MUST only accept quoted. Given that it was the ambiguity in the original spec that caused this problem, I’m a little hesitant to be that pushy.

 

Maybe for the errata we could be less pushy, but when we (inevitably, someday) do an actual update or bis to RFC8224, we could be more pushy about it.

Is it really a problem to just say that you must (or must not, either way) include quotes and be done? STI-AS and STI-VS implementations will need to be updated frequently over the next few years due to all of the new PASSporT extensions, so expecting implementations to add/remove quotes seems reasonable. Implementations could accept both values at their discretion, even if it violates the standard.

 

Sincerely,

That was not my understanding.

 

We can go back to the recording to check on the decision.

 

More importantly, what is the normative strength of "be tolerant to the absence of quotes when receiving"? Is this MUST accept quotes? SHOULD accept quotes?

 

In the sentence "Implementations SHOULD use quotes around the token when sending", what would be the valid use cases when implementations are allowed not to use quotes?

 

My understanding is that SHOULD implies well know exceptions.

 

The exception we are aware of is that implementations exhibiting this behavior exist. It is, in other words, for backwards compatibility reasons.

 

Regardless of what the recording says (we were kinda all over the place, if I recall), I think I agree that the right semantics are that you MUST accept quoted and unquoted, and SHOUD send quotes (the exception to the SHOULD being backwards compatibility). If we said you MUST send quotes, well, then implementations that don’t are violating the spec. As you pointed out, it’s kind of a mixed bag at the moment out there in terms of where implementations are.
