Lior Bridgewater Systems J. Korhonen Teliasonera J. Loughney Nokia January Chargeable User Identity Status of This Memo This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements.

Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" STD 1 for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. This attribute can be used by a home network to identify a user for the purpose of roaming transactions that occur outside of the home network. Table of Contents 1. CUI Attribute Attribute Table Diameter Consideration IANA Considerations Security Considerations Normative References Informative References In these methods, the User-Name 1 attribute contains an anonymous identity e.

While this mechanism is good practice in some circumstances, there are problems if local and intermediate networks require a surrogate identity to bind the current session. Chargeable-User-Identity can be used outside the home network in scenarios that traditionally relied on User-Name 1 to correlate a session to a user.

For example, local or intermediate networks may limit the number of simultaneous sessions for specific users; they may require a Chargeable-User-Identity in order to demonstrate willingness to pay or otherwise limit the potential for fraud. This implies that a unique identity provided by the home network should be able to be conveyed to all parties involved in the roaming transaction for correlating the authentication and accounting packets.

Providing a unique identity, Chargeable-User-Identity CUI , to intermediaries, is necessary to fulfill certain business needs. This should not undermine the anonymity of the user. The mechanism provided by this document allows the home operator to meet these business requirements by providing a temporary identity representing the user and at the same time protecting the anonymity of the user. When the home network assigns a value to the CUI, it asserts that this value represents a user in the home network.

The assertion should be temporary -- long enough to be useful for the external applications and not too long such that it can be used to identify the user. Missing elements include mechanisms for billing and fraud prevention. Adrangi, et al. A chargeable identity reflecting the user profile by the home network is needed in such roaming scenarios. Motivation Some other mechanisms have been proposed in place of the CUI attribute.

These mechanisms are insufficient or cause other problems. However, in a complex global roaming environment where there could be one or more intermediaries between the NAS [ RFC ] and the home RADIUS server, the use of aforementioned attributes could lead to problems as described below. Additionally, there could be multiple class attributes in a RADIUS packet, and since the contents of Class 25 attribute is not to be interpreted by clients, this makes it hard for the entities outside the home network to determine which one contains the CUI.

On the other hand, rewriting of a User-Name 1 attribute sent within an Access-Accept packet occurs more rarely, since a Proxy-State 33 attribute can be used to route the Access-Accept packet without parsing the User-Name 1 attribute. The result is that when a User-Name 1 attribute is sent in an Access-Accept packet, it is possible that the Access-Request packet and Accounting-Request packets will follow different paths.

The CUI therefore provides a standard approach to billing and fraud prevention when EAP methods supporting privacy are used. It does not solve all related problems, but does provide for billing and fraud prevention.

Typically, the CUI represents the identity of the actual user, but it may also indicate other chargeable identities such as a group of users. And, during Adrangi, et al. The Access-Request may be sent either in the initial authentication or during re-authentication. This string value is a reference to a particular user. The binding lifetime of the reference to the user is determined based on business agreements.

For example, the lifetime can be set to one billing period. In cases where the Adrangi, et al. Attribute Table The following table provides a guide to which attribute s may be found in which kinds of packets, and in what quantity. Diameter Consideration Diameter needs to define an identical attribute with the same Type value. CUI 89 6. Security Considerations It is strongly recommended that the CUI format used is such that the real user identity is not revealed. Furthermore, where a reference is used to a real user identity, it is recommended that the binding lifetime of that reference to the real user be kept as short as possible.

However, there is no way to detect or prevent this. Attempting theft of service, a man-in-the-middle may try to insert, modify, or remove the CUI in the Access-Accept packets and Accounting packets.
