Network Working Group P. Gutmann Request for Comments: 3211 University of Auckland Category: Standards Track December 2001 Password-based Encryption for CMS 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. Copyright Notice Copyright (C) The Internet Society (2001). All Rights Reserved. Abstract This document provides a method of encrypting data using user- supplied passwords and, by extension, any form of variable-length keying material which is not necessarily an algorithm-specific fixed-format key. The Cryptographic Message Syntax data format does not currently contain any provisions for password-based data encryption. 1. Introduction This document describes a password-based content encryption mechanism for CMS. This is implemented as a new RecipientInfo type and is an extension to the RecipientInfo types currently defined in RFC 2630. The format of the messages are described in ASN.1 [ASN1]. The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119. Gutmann Standards Track [Page 1]
RFC 3211 Password-based Encryption for CMS December 2001 1.1 Password-based Content Encryption CMS currently defined three recipient information types for public- key key wrapping (KeyTransRecipientInfo), conventional key wrapping (KEKRecipientInfo), and key agreement (KeyAgreeRecipientInfo). The recipient information described here adds a fourth type, PasswordRecipientInfo, which provides for password-based key wrapping. 1.2 RecipientInfo Types The new recipient information type is an extension to the RecipientInfo type defined in section 6.2 of CMS, extending the types to: RecipientInfo ::= CHOICE { ktri KeyTransRecipientInfo, kari [1] KeyAgreeRecipientInfo, kekri [2] KEKRecipientInfo, pwri [3] PasswordRecipientinfo -- New RecipientInfo type } Although the recipient information generation process is described in terms of a password-based operation (since this will be its most common use), the transformation employed is a general-purpose key derivation one which allows any type of keying material to be converted into a key specific to a particular content-encryption algorithm. Since the most common use for password-based encryption is to encrypt files which are stored locally (rather than being transmitted across a network), the term "recipient" is somewhat misleading, but is used here because the other key transport mechanisms have always been described in similar terms. 1.2.1 PasswordRecipientInfo Type Recipient information using a user-supplied password or previously agreed-upon key is represented in the type PasswordRecipientInfo. Each instance of PasswordRecipientInfo will transfer the content- encryption key (CEK) to one or more recipients who have the previously agreed-upon password or key-encryption key (KEK). PasswordRecipientInfo ::= SEQUENCE { version CMSVersion, -- Always set to 0 keyDerivationAlgorithm [0] KeyDerivationAlgorithmIdentifier OPTIONAL, keyEncryptionAlgorithm KeyEncryptionAlgorithmIdentifier, encryptedKey EncryptedKey } Gutmann Standards Track [Page 2]
RFC 3211 Password-based Encryption for CMS December 2001 The fields of type PasswordRecipientInfo have the following meanings: version is the syntax version number. It MUST be 0. Details of the CMSVersion type are discussed in CMS [RFC2630], section 10.2.5. keyDerivationAlgorithm identifies the key-derivation algorithm, and any associated parameters, used to derive the KEK from the user-supplied password. If this field is absent, the KEK is supplied from an external source, for example a crypto token such as a smart card. keyEncryptionAlgorithm identifies the key-encryption algorithm, and any associated parameters, used to encrypt the CEK with the KEK. encryptedKey is the result of encrypting the content-encryption key with the KEK. 1.2.2 Rationale Password-based key wrapping is a two-stage process, a first stage in which a user-supplied password is converted into a KEK if required, and a second stage in which the KEK is used to encrypt a CEK. These two stages are identified by the two algorithm identifiers. Although the PKCS #5v2 standard [RFC2898] goes one step further to wrap these up into a single algorithm identifier, this design is particular to that standard and may not be applicable for other key wrapping mechanisms. For this reason the two steps are specified separately. The current format doesn't provide any means of differentiating between multiple password recipient infos, which would occur for example if two passwords are used to encrypt the same data. Unfortunately there is a lack of existing practice in this area, since typical applications follow the model of encrypting data such as a file with a single password obtained from the user. Without any clear requirements, an appropriate multiple password mechanism would be difficult (perhaps impossible) to define at this time. If sufficient demand emerges then this may be addressed in a future version of this document, for example by adding an optional identification field of an appropriate form. 2 Supported Algorithms This section lists the algorithms that must be implemented. Additional algorithms that should be implemented are also included. Gutmann Standards Track [Page 3]
RFC 3211 Password-based Encryption for CMS December 2001 2.1 Key Derivation Algorithms These algorithms are used to convert the password into a KEK. The key derivation algorithms are: KeyDerivationAlgorithmIdentifer ::= AlgorithmIdentifier Conforming implementations MUST include PBKDF2 [RFC2898]. Appendix B contains a more precise definition of the allowed algorithm type than is possible using 1988 ASN.1. 2.2 Key Encryption Algorithms These algorithms are used to encrypt the CEK using the derived KEK. The key encryption algorithms are: KeyEncryptionAlgorithmIdentifier ::= AlgorithmIdentifier The PasswordRecipientInfo key encryption algorithm identifier is: id-alg-PWRI-KEK OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) rsadsi(113549) pkcs(1) pkcs-9(9) smime(16) alg(3) 9 } The AlgorithmIdentifier parameters field for this algorithm contains the KEK encryption algorithm used with the the key wrap algorithm specified in section 2.3. There is no requirement that the CEK algorithm match the KEK encryption algorithm, although care should be taken to ensure that, if different algorithms are used, they offer an equivalent level of security (for example wrapping a Triple-DES key with an RC2/40 key leads to a severe impedance mismatch in encryption strength). Conforming implementations MUST implement the id-alg-PWRI-KEK key wrap algorithm. For the KEK encryption algorithms used by id-alg- PWRI-KEK, conforming implementations MUST include Triple-DES in CBC mode and MAY include other algorithms such as AES, CAST-128, RC5, IDEA, Skipjack, Blowfish, and encryption modes as required. Implementations SHOULD NOT include any KSG (keystream generator) ciphers such as RC4 or a block cipher in OFB mode, and SHOULD NOT include a block cipher in ECB mode. 2.2.1 Rationale The use of a level of indirection in specifying the KeyEncryptionAlgorithmIdentifier allows alternative wrapping algorithms to be used in the future. If the KEK algorithm were specified directly in this field then any use of an alternative Gutmann Standards Track [Page 4]
RFC 3211 Password-based Encryption for CMS December 2001 wrapping algorithm would require a change to the PasswordRecipientInfo structure rather than simply a change to the key encryption algorithm identifier. The parameter field for this algorithm identifier could be specified to default to triple-DES, however due to the confusion over NULL vs absent parameters in algorithm identifiers it's left explicit with no default value. 2.3.1 Key Wrap The key wrap algorithm encrypts a CEK with a KEK in a manner which ensures that every bit of plaintext effects every bit of ciphertext. This makes it equivalent in function to the package transform [PACKAGE] without requiring additional mechanisms or resources such as hash functions or cryptographically strong random numbers. The key wrap algorithm is performed in two phases, a first phase which formats the CEK into a form suitable for encryption by the KEK, and a second phase which wraps the formatted CEK using the KEK. Key formatting: Create a formatted CEK block consisting of the following: 1. A one-byte count of the number of bytes in the CEK. 2. A check value containing the bitwise complement of the first three bytes of the CEK. 3. The CEK. 4. Enough random padding data to make the CEK data block a multiple of the KEK block length and at least two KEK cipher blocks long (the fact that 32 bits of count+check value are used means that even with a 40-bit CEK, the resulting data size will always be at least two (64-bit) cipher blocks long). The padding data does not have to be cryptographically strong, although unpredictability helps. Note that PKCS #5 padding is not used, since the length of the data is already known. The formatted CEK block then looks as follows: CEK byte count || check value || CEK || padding (if required) Key wrapping: 1. Encrypt the padded key using the KEK. Gutmann Standards Track [Page 5]
RFC 3211 Password-based Encryption for CMS December 2001 2. Without resetting the IV (that is, using the last ciphertext block as the IV), encrypt the encrypted padded key a second time. The resulting double-encrypted data is the EncryptedKey. 2.3.2 Key Unwrap Key unwrapping: 1. Using the n-1'th ciphertext block as the IV, decrypt the n'th ciphertext block. 2. Using the decrypted n'th ciphertext block as the IV, decrypt the 1st ... n-1'th ciphertext blocks. This strips the outer layer of encryption. 3. Decrypt the inner layer of encryption using the KEK. Key format verification: 1a. If the CEK byte count is less than the minimum allowed key size (usually 5 bytes for 40-bit keys) or greater than the wrapped CEK length or not valid for the CEK algorithm (eg not 16 or 24 bytes for triple DES), the KEK was invalid. 1b. If the bitwise complement of the key check value doesn't match the first three bytes of the key, the KEK was invalid. 2.3.3 Example Given a content-encryption algorithm of Skipjack and a KEK algorithm of Triple-DES, the wrap steps are as follows: 1. Set the first 4 bytes of the CEK block to the Skipjack key size (10 bytes) and the bitwise complement of the first three bytes of the CEK. 2. Append the 80-bit (10-byte) Skipjack CEK and pad the total to 16 bytes (two triple-DES blocks) using 2 bytes of random data. 2. Using the IV given in the KeyEncryptionAlgorithmIdentifer, encrypted the padded Skipjack key. 3. Without resetting the IV, encrypt the encrypted padded key a second time. Gutmann Standards Track [Page 6]
RFC 3211 Password-based Encryption for CMS December 2001 The unwrap steps are as follows: 1. Using the first 8 bytes of the double-encrypted key as the IV, decrypt the second 8 bytes. 2. Without resetting the IV, decrypt the first 8 bytes. 3. Decrypt the inner layer of encryption using the the IV given in the KeyEncryptionAlgorithmIdentifer to recover the padded Skipjack key. 4. If the length byte isn't equal to the Skipjack key size (80 bits or 10 bytes) or the bitwise complement of the check bytes doesn't match the first three bytes of the CEK, the KEK was invalid. 2.3.4 Rationale for the Double Wrapping If many CEKs are encrypted in a standard way with the same KEK and the KEK has a 64-bit block size then after about 2^32 encryptions there is a high probability of a collision between different blocks of encrypted CEKs. If an opponent manages to obtain a CEK, they may be able to solve for other CEKs. The double-encryption wrapping process, which makes every bit of ciphertext dependent on every bit of the CEK, eliminates this collision problem (as well as preventing other potential problems such as bit-flipping attacks). Since the IV is applied to the inner layer of encryption, even wrapping the same CEK with the same KEK will result in a completely different wrapped key each time. An additional feature of the double wrapping is that it doesn't require the use of any extra algorithms such as hash algorithms in addition to the wrapping algorithm itself, allowing it to be implemented in devices which only support one type of encryption algorithm. A typical example of such a device is a crypto token such as a smart card which often only supports a single block cipher and a single public-key algorithm, making it impossible to wrap keys if the use of an additional algorithm were required. 3. Test Vectors This section contains two sets of test vectors, a very basic set for DES which can be used to verify correctness and which uses an algorithm which is freely exportable from the US, and a stress-test version which uses very long passphrase and key sizes and a mixture of algorithms which can be used to verify the behaviour in extreme cases. Gutmann Standards Track [Page 7]
RFC 3211 Password-based Encryption for CMS December 2001 The basic test contains two subtests, a known-answer test for the key derivation stage and a full test of the key wrapping. Both tests use a DES-CBC key derived from the password "password" with salt { 12 34 56 78 78 56 34 12 } using 5 iterations of PBKDF2. In the known answer test the IV is set to all zeroes (equivalent to using ECB) and used to encrypt an all-zero data block. The following values are obtained for the known-answer test: PKCS #5v2 values: input 70 61 73 73 77 6f 72 64 passphrase: "password" input salt: 12 34 56 78 78 56 34 12 iterations: 5 output key: D1 DA A7 86 15 F2 87 E6 known answer: 9B BD 78 FC 11 A3 A9 08 The following values are obtained when wrapping a 64-bit (parity- adjusted) DES-EBC key: PKCS #5v2 values: input 70 61 73 73 77 6f 72 64 passphrase: "password" input salt: 12 34 56 78 78 56 34 12 iterations: 5 output key: D1 DA A7 86 15 F2 87 E6 CEK formatting phase: length byte: 08 key check: 73 9D 83 CEK: 8C 62 7C 89 73 23 A2 F8 padding: C4 36 F5 41 complete 08 73 9D 83 8C 62 7C 89 73 23 A2 F8 C4 36 F5 41 CEK block: Gutmann Standards Track [Page 8]

Security Considerations The security of this recipient information type rests on the security of the underlying mechanisms employed, for which further information can be found in RFC 2630 and PKCS5v2. More importantly, however, when used with a password the security of this information type rests on the entropy of the user-selected password, which is typically quite low. Pass phrases (as opposed to simple passwords) are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED, although it should be recognized that even with pass phrases it will be difficult to use this recipient information type to derive a KEK with sufficient entropy to properly protect a 128-bit (or higher) CEK. Gutmann Standards Track [Page 11]
RFC 3211 Password-based Encryption for CMS December 2001 5. IANA Considerations The PasswordRecipientInfo key encryption algorithms are identified by object identifiers (OIDs). OIDs were assigned from an arc contributed to the S/MIME Working Group by the RSA Security. Should additional encryption algorithms be introduced, the advocates for such algorithms are expected to assign the necessary OIDs from their own arcs. No action by the IANA is necessary for this document or any anticipated updates.
