1. Introduction
This document specifies algorithms for use with the Mutual
authentication protocol for the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
[RFC8120] (hereafter referred to as the "core specification"). The
algorithms are based on augmented password-based authenticated key
exchange (augmented PAKE) techniques. In particular, it uses one of
three key exchange algorithms defined in ISO 11770-4 ("Information
technology - Security techniques - Key management - Part 4:
Mechanisms based on weak secrets") [ISO.11770-4.2006] as its basis.
Oiwa, et al. Experimental [Page 2]
RFC 8121 HTTP Mutual Authentication: Algorithms April 2017
To briefly summarize, the Mutual authentication protocol exchanges
four values -- K_c1, K_s1, VK_c, and VK_s -- to perform authenticated
key exchanges, using the password-derived secret pi and its
"augmented version" J(pi). This document defines the set of
functions K_c1, K_s1, and J for a specific algorithm family.
Please note that from the point of view of literature related to
cryptography, the original functionality of augmented PAKE is
separated into the functions K_c1 and K_s1 as defined in this
document, and the functions VK_c and VK_s, which are defined in
Section 12.2 of [RFC8120] as "default functions". For the purpose of
security analysis, please also refer to these functions.
1.1. Terminology
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
[RFC2119].
The term "natural numbers" refers to non-negative integers (including
zero) throughout this document.
This document treats both the input (domain) and the output
(codomain) of hash functions as octet strings. When a natural-number
output of hash function H is required, it will be notated, for
example, as INT(H(s)).
2. Cryptographic Overview (Non-normative)
The cryptographic primitive used in this algorithm specification is
based on a variant of augmented PAKE called "APKAS-AMP" (augmented
password-authenticated key agreement scheme, version AMP), proposed
by T. Kwon and originally submitted to [IEEE-1363.2_2008]. The
general flow of the successful exchange is shown below for
informative purposes only. The multiplicative notations are used for
group operators, and all modulus operations for finite groups (mod q
and mod r) are omitted.

Note that the concrete (binary) message formats (mapping to HTTP
messages), as well as the formal definitions of equations for the
latter two messages, are defined in the core specification [RFC8120].
The formal definitions for values corresponding to the first two
messages are defined in the following sections.
3. Authentication Algorithms
This document specifies one family of algorithms based on APKAS-AMP,
to be used with [RFC8120]. This family consists of four
authentication algorithms, which differ only in their underlying
mathematical groups and security parameters. These algorithms do not
add any additional parameters. The tokens for these algorithms are
as follows:
o iso-kam3-dl-2048-sha256: for the 2048-bit discrete-logarithm
setting with the SHA-256 hash function.
o iso-kam3-dl-4096-sha512: for the 4096-bit discrete-logarithm
setting with the SHA-512 hash function.
o iso-kam3-ec-p256-sha256: for the 256-bit prime-field
elliptic-curve setting with the SHA-256 hash function.
o iso-kam3-ec-p521-sha512: for the 521-bit prime-field
elliptic-curve setting with the SHA-512 hash function.
Oiwa, et al. Experimental [Page 4]
RFC 8121 HTTP Mutual Authentication: Algorithms April 2017
For discrete-logarithm settings, the underlying groups are the
2048-bit and 4096-bit Modular Exponential (MODP) groups defined in
[RFC3526]. See Appendix A for the exact specifications for the
groups and associated parameters. Hash function H is SHA-256 for the
2048-bit group and SHA-512 for the 4096-bit group, respectively, as
defined in FIPS PUB 180-4 [FIPS.180-4.2015]. The hash iteration
count nIterPi is 16384. The representation of the parameters "kc1",
"ks1", "vkc", and "vks" is base64-fixed-number.
For the elliptic-curve settings, the underlying groups are the
elliptic curves over the prime fields P-256 and P-521, respectively,
as specified in Appendix D.1.2 of the FIPS PUB 186-4
[FIPS.186-4.2013] specification. Hash function H is SHA-256 for the
P-256 curve and SHA-512 for the P-521 curve, respectively. Cofactors
of these curves are 1. The hash iteration count nIterPi is 16384.
The representation of the parameters "kc1", "ks1", "vkc", and "vks"
is hex-fixed-number.
Note: This algorithm is based on the Key Agreement Mechanism 3 (KAM3)
as defined in Section 6.3 of ISO/IEC 11770-4 [ISO.11770-4.2006], with
a few modifications/improvements. However, implementers should
consider this document as normative, because several minor details of
the algorithm have changed and major improvements have been made.
3.1. Support Functions and Notations
The algorithm definitions use the support functions and notations
defined below.
Decimal notations are used for integers in this specification by
default. Integers in hexadecimal notations are prefixed with "0x".
In this document, the octet(), OCTETS(), and INT() functions are used
as defined in the core specification [RFC8120].
Note: The definition of OCTETS() is different from the function
GE2OS_x in the original ISO specification; GE2OS_x takes the shortest
representation without preceding zeros.
All of the algorithms defined in this specification use the default
functions defined in Section 12.2 of [RFC8120] for computing the
values pi, VK_c, and VK_s.

RFC 8121 HTTP Mutual Authentication: Algorithms April 2017
3.2. Functions for Discrete-Logarithm Settings
In this section, an equation (x / y mod z) denotes a natural number w
less than z that satisfies (w * y) mod z = x mod z.
For the discrete logarithm, we refer to some of the domain parameters
by using the following symbols:
o q: for "the prime" defining the MODP group.
o g: for "the generator" associated with the group.
o r: for the order of the subgroup generated by g.
The function J is defined as
J(pi) = g^(pi) mod q
The value of K_c1 is derived as
K_c1 = g^(S_c1) mod q
where S_c1 is a random integer within the range [1, r-1] and r is the
size of the subgroup generated by g. In addition, S_c1 MUST be
larger than log(q)/log(g) (so that g^(S_c1) > q).
The server MUST check the condition 1 < K_c1 < q-1 upon reception.
Let an intermediate value t_1 be
t_1 = INT(H(octet(1) | OCTETS(K_c1)))
The value of K_s1 is derived from J(pi) and K_c1 as
K_s1 = (J(pi) * K_c1^(t_1))^(S_s1) mod q
where S_s1 is a random number within the range [1, r-1]. The value
of K_s1 MUST satisfy 1 < K_s1 < q-1. If this condition is not held,
the server MUST reject the exchange. The client MUST check this
condition upon reception.
Let an intermediate value t_2 be
t_2 = INT(H(octet(2) | OCTETS(K_c1) | OCTETS(K_s1)))
The value z on the client side is derived by the following equation:
z = K_s1^((S_c1 + t_2) / (S_c1 * t_1 + pi) mod r) mod q
Oiwa, et al. Experimental [Page 6]
RFC 8121 HTTP Mutual Authentication: Algorithms April 2017
The value z on the server side is derived by the following equation:
z = (K_c1 * g^(t_2))^(S_s1) mod q
(Note: The original ISO specification contained a message pair
containing verification of value z along with the "transcript" of the
protocol exchange. This functionality is contained in the functions
VK_c and VK_s.)
3.3. Functions for Elliptic-Curve Settings
For the elliptic-curve settings, we refer to some of the domain
parameters by the following symbols:
o q: for the prime used to define the group.
o G: for the point defined with the underlying group called
"the generator".
o h: for the cofactor of the group.
o r: for the order of the subgroup generated by G.
The function P(p) converts a curve point p into an integer
representing point p, by computing x * 2 + (y mod 2), where (x, y)
are the coordinates of point p. P'(z) is the inverse of function P;
that is, it converts an integer z to a point p that satisfies
P(p) = z. If such p exists, it is uniquely defined. Otherwise,
z does not represent a valid curve point.
The operator "+" indicates the elliptic-curve group operation, and
the operation [x] * p denotes an integer-multiplication of point p:
it calculates p + p + ... (x times) ... + p. See the literature on
elliptic-curve cryptography for the exact algorithms used for those
functions (e.g., Section 3 of [RFC6090]; however, note that [RFC6090]
uses different notations). 0_E represents the infinity point. The
equation (x / y mod z) denotes a natural number w less than z that
satisfies (w * y) mod z = x mod z.
The function J is defined as
J(pi) = [pi] * G
Oiwa, et al. Experimental [Page 7]
RFC 8121 HTTP Mutual Authentication: Algorithms April 2017
The value of K_c1 is derived as
K_c1 = P(K_c1'), where K_c1' = [S_c1] * G
where S_c1 is a random number within the range [1, r-1]. The server
MUST check that (1) the value of received K_c1 represents a valid
curve point and (2) [h] * K_c1' is not equal to 0_E.
Let an intermediate integer t_1 be
t_1 = INT(H(octet(1) | OCTETS(K_c1)))
The value of K_s1 is derived from J(pi) and K_c1' = P'(K_c1) as
K_s1 = P([S_s1] * (J(pi) + [t_1] * K_c1'))
where S_s1 is a random number within the range [1, r-1]. The value
of K_s1 MUST represent a valid curve point and satisfy
[h] * P'(K_s1) <> 0_E. If this condition is not satisfied, the
server MUST reject the exchange. The client MUST check this
condition upon reception.
Let an intermediate integer t_2 be
t_2 = INT(H(octet(2) | OCTETS(K_c1) | OCTETS(K_s1)))
The value z on the client side is derived by the following equation:
z = P([(S_c1 + t_2) / (S_c1 * t_1 + pi) mod r] * P'(K_s1))
The value z on the server side is derived by the following equation:
z = P([S_s1] * (P'(K_c1) + [t_2] * G))

This document defines four new tokens that have been added to the
"HTTP Mutual Authentication Algorithms" registry:

| iso-kam3-dl-2048-sha256 | ISO-11770-4 KAM3, | RFC 8121 |
| | 2048-bit DL | |

| iso-kam3-ec-p521-sha512 | ISO-11770-4 KAM3, | RFC 8121 |
| | 521-bit EC | |
+-------------------------+-----------------------------+-----------+
5. Security Considerations
Please refer to the Security Considerations section of the core
specification [RFC8120] for algorithm-independent considerations.
5.1. General Implementation Considerations
o During the exchange, the value VK_s, defined in [RFC8120], MUST
only be sent when the server has received a correct (expected)
value of VK_c. This is a cryptographic requirement, as stated in
[ISO.11770-4.2006].
o All random numbers used in these algorithms MUST be
cryptographically secure against forward and backward guessing
attacks.
o To prevent timing-based side-channel attacks, computation times of
all numerical operations on discrete-logarithm group elements and
elliptic-curve points MUST be normalized and made independent of
the exact values.
Oiwa, et al. Experimental [Page 9]
RFC 8121 HTTP Mutual Authentication: Algorithms April 2017
5.2. Cryptographic Assumptions and Considerations
The notes in this subsection are for those who analyze the security
of this algorithm and those who might want to make a derived work
from this algorithm specification.
o The treatment of an invalid K_s1 value in the exchange has been
changed from the method defined in the original ISO specification,
which specifies that the sender should retry with another random
S_s1 value. We specify that the exchange must be rejected. This
is due to an observation that this condition is less likely to
result from a random error caused by an unlucky choice of S_s1 but
is more likely the result of a systematic failure caused by an
invalid J(pi) value (even implying possible denial-of-service
attacks).
o The usual construction of authenticated key exchange algorithms
consists of a key exchange phase and a key verification phase. To
avoid security risks or vulnerabilities caused by mixing values
from two or more key exchanges, the latter usually involves some
kinds of exchange transactions to be verified. In the algorithms
defined in this document, such verification steps are provided in
the generalized definitions of VK_c and VK_s in [RFC8120]. If the
algorithm defined above is used in other protocols, this aspect
MUST be given careful consideration.
o The domain parameters chosen and specified in this document are
based on a few assumptions. In the discrete-logarithm setting,
q has to be a safe prime ([(q - 1) / 2] must also be prime), and
r should be the largest possible value [(q - 1) / 2]. In the
elliptic-curve setting, r has to be prime. Implementers defining
a variation of this algorithm using a different domain parameter
SHOULD be attentive to these conditions.
