Thanks for all the discussion on this topic.  There are several modes that TLS 1.2 can operate with respect to DH.  Below is a proposal on cases to merge some of the cases covered by this draft into the obsolete keyex draft.  I'd like to see if there is some consensus to make this change before we adopt it into the working group. 

 

static-static where both client and server have DH certificates with long term keys.  I think we have general consensus that this mode should be a must not.  To deprecate this mode I think we need to state that clients MUST NOT use certificates of type rsa_fixed_dh and dsa_fixed_dh and server MUST NOT request them.  Would the working group support merging this guidance into the obsolete keyex draft?  
 

Static-static is OK only when coupled with ephemeral (for forward secrecy), using the static part for implicit mutual authentication. Not good when used “alone”. Within the TLS context, OK to “MUST NOT”.

 

ephemeral-static where the client uses an ephemeral key and the server uses a long term key.  This mode does not provide forward secrecy.  I'm not sure we have reached consensus on how far to deprecate this option.  Would the working group support MUST NOT use these ciphersuites unless forward secrecy does not matter for your use case and any implementation guidance provided to avoid weaknesses is followed?
Forward secrecy here is “asymmetric”: “server fails” -> “secrecy fails”. There are use cases…

I recommend “SHOULD NOT” here.

 

[FV] The implementation guidance to avoid weaknesses in any ephemeral-static exchange is "don't get anything wrong, anything at all, all the way down to your field arithmetic libraries". I don't think that's a workable recommendation, and I believe we should deprecate modes that are so unsafe to implement.

 

Static-ephemeral is not “so unsafe to implement”, not any more than any other mode. It shouldn’t be encouraged, but shouldn’t be killed off either.

 

ephemeral-ephemeral  - I think these are already covered in the obsolete keyex draft. 
Absolutely no reason to deprecate or obsolete this mode.

Have the authors look at Post-Quantum KEMs?

 

I'm not sure why PQ KEMs are relevant here.

Unless you use semi-static exchange, which in many cases makes sense.

Have the authors look at Post-Quantum KEMs?

I think these suites should stay around. 

 

While static-static indeed do not provide forward secrecy (and many of us – though not everybody! – carry for that), static-ephemeral DH and ECDH are perfectly fine from that point of view.

Dear colleagues:

 

I think this document should absolutely *not* be adopted, without providing far more technical justification. The quoted Raccoon attack is an easy to mitigate attack (which has nothing to do with finite field groups, just with poor design choices of postprocessing, where one uses variable-size integer representations for a key). There are also good reasons to have key exchanges where one of the parties has a static key, whether ecc-based or ff-based (e.g., sni, opaque), for which secure implementations are known. No detail is provided and that alone should be sufficient reason to not adopt.

 

Rene

This is a working group call for adoption for Deprecating FFDH(E) Ciphersuites in TLS (draft-bartle-tls-deprecate-ffdhe-00). We had a presentation for this draft at the IETF 110 meeting and since it is a similar topic to the key exchange deprecation draft the chairs want to get a sense if the working group wants to adopt this draft (perhaps the drafts could be merged if both move forward).  Please review the draft and post your comments to the list by Friday, August 13, 2021.  

 

Thanks,

 

The TLS chairs
