1. Introduction
1. はじめに

[RFC3552] provides detailed guidance to protocol designers about both how to consider security as part of protocol design and how to inform readers of protocol specifications about security issues. This document intends to provide a similar set of guidelines for considering privacy in protocol design.


Privacy is a complicated concept with a rich history that spans many disciplines. With regard to data, often it is a concept applied to "personal data", commonly defined as information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. Many sets of privacy principles and privacy design frameworks have been developed in different forums over the years. These include the Fair Information Practices [FIPs], a baseline set of privacy protections pertaining to the collection and use of personal data (often based on the principles established in [OECD], for example), and the Privacy by Design concept, which provides high-level privacy guidance for systems design (see [PbD] for one example). The guidance provided in this document is inspired by this prior work, but it aims to be more concrete, pointing protocol designers to specific engineering choices that can impact the privacy of the individuals that make use of Internet protocols.


Different people have radically different conceptions of what privacy means, both in general and as it relates to them personally [Westin]. Furthermore, privacy as a legal concept is understood differently in different jurisdictions. The guidance provided in this document is generic and can be used to inform the design of any protocol to be used anywhere in the world, without reference to specific legal frameworks.


Whether any individual document warrants a specific privacy considerations section will depend on the document's content. Documents whose entire focus is privacy may not merit a separate section (for example, "Private Extensions to the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for Asserted Identity within Trusted Networks" [RFC3325]). For certain specifications, privacy considerations are a subset of security considerations and can be discussed explicitly in the security considerations section. Some documents will not require discussion of privacy considerations (for example, "Definition of the Opus Audio Codec" [RFC6716]). The guidance provided here can and should be used to assess the privacy considerations of protocol, architectural, and operational specifications and to decide whether those considerations are to be documented in a stand-alone section, within the security considerations section, or throughout the document. The guidance provided here is meant to help the thought process of privacy analysis; it does not provide specific directions for how to write a privacy considerations section.

個々のドキュメントが特定のプライバシーに関する考慮事項を保証するかどうかは、ドキュメントのコンテンツによって異なります。プライバシーに重点が置かれているドキュメントは、別のセクション(たとえば、「信頼されたネットワーク内のアサートされたIDのためのセッション開始プロトコル(SIP)のプライベート拡張」[RFC3325])に値しない場合があります。特定の仕様では、プライバシーの考慮事項はセキュリティの考慮事項のサブセットであり、セキュリティの考慮事項のセクションで明示的に説明できます。一部のドキュメントでは、プライバシーに関する考慮事項の説明は必要ありません(たとえば、 "Opusオーディオコーデックの定義" [RFC6716])。ここで提供されるガイダンスは、プロトコル、アーキテクチャ、および運用仕様のプライバシーに関する考慮事項を評価し、それらの考慮事項をスタンドアロンセクション、セキュリティに関する考慮事項セクション、またはドキュメント全体のいずれに文書化するかを決定するために使用できます。ここで提供されるガイダンスは、プライバシー分析の思考プロセスを支援することを目的としています。プライバシーに関する考慮事項セクションの記述方法についての具体的な指示は提供していません。

This document is organized as follows. Section 2 describes the extent to which the guidance offered here is applicable within the IETF and within the larger Internet community. Section 3 explains the terminology used in this document. Section 4 reviews typical communications architectures to understand at which points there may be privacy threats. Section 5 discusses threats to privacy as they apply to Internet protocols. Section 6 outlines mitigations of those threats. Section 7 provides the guidelines for analyzing and documenting privacy considerations within IETF specifications. Section 8 examines the privacy characteristics of an IETF protocol to demonstrate the use of the guidance framework.


2. Scope of Privacy Implications of Internet Protocols
2. インターネットプロトコルのプライバシーへの影響の範囲

Internet protocols are often built flexibly, making them useful in a variety of architectures, contexts, and deployment scenarios without requiring significant interdependency between disparately designed components. Although protocol designers often have a particular target architecture or set of architectures in mind at design time, it is not uncommon for architectural frameworks to develop later, after implementations exist and have been deployed in combination with other protocols or components to form complete systems.


As a consequence, the extent to which protocol designers can foresee all of the privacy implications of a particular protocol at design time is limited. An individual protocol may be relatively benign on its own, and it may make use of privacy and security features at lower layers of the protocol stack (Internet Protocol Security, Transport Layer Security, and so forth) to mitigate the risk of attack. But when deployed within a larger system or used in a way not envisioned at design time, its use may create new privacy risks. Protocols are often implemented and deployed long after design time by different people than those who did the protocol design. The guidelines in Section 7 ask protocol designers to consider how their protocols are expected to interact with systems and information that exist outside the protocol bounds, but not to imagine every possible deployment scenario.


Furthermore, in many cases the privacy properties of a system are dependent upon the complete system design where various protocols are combined together to form a product solution; the implementation, which includes the user interface design; and operational deployment practices, including default privacy settings and security processes of the company doing the deployment. These details are specific to particular instantiations and generally outside the scope of the work conducted in the IETF. The guidance provided here may be useful in making choices about these details, but its primary aim is to assist with the design, implementation, and operation of protocols.


Transparency of data collection and use -- often effectuated through user interface design -- is normally relied on (whether rightly or wrongly) as a key factor in determining the privacy impact of a system. Although most IETF activities do not involve standardizing user interfaces or user-facing communications, in some cases, understanding expected user interactions can be important for protocol design. Unexpected user behavior may have an adverse impact on security and/or privacy.


In sum, privacy issues, even those related to protocol development, go beyond the technical guidance discussed herein. As an example, consider HTTP [RFC2616], which was designed to allow the exchange of arbitrary data. A complete analysis of the privacy considerations for uses of HTTP might include what type of data is exchanged, how this data is stored, and how it is processed. Hence the analysis for an individual's static personal web page would be different than the use of HTTP for exchanging health records. A protocol designer working on HTTP extensions (such as Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) [RFC4918]) is not expected to describe the privacy risks derived from all possible usage scenarios, but rather the privacy properties specific to the extensions and any particular uses of the extensions that are expected and foreseen at design time.

要するに、プライバシーの問題は、プロトコル開発に関連するものでさえ、ここで説明する技術的なガイダンスを超えています。例として、任意のデータの交換を可能にするように設計されたHTTP [RFC2616]を考えます。 HTTPの使用に関するプライバシーの考慮事項の完全な分析には、交換されるデータのタイプ、このデータの保管方法、およびデータの処理方法が含まれる場合があります。したがって、個人の静的な個人用Webページの分析は、ヘルスレコードの交換にHTTPを使用する場合とは異なります。 HTTP拡張(Web分散オーサリングとバージョン管理(WebDAV)[RFC4918]など)に取り組んでいるプロトコル設計者は、考えられるすべての使用シナリオから派生するプライバシーリスクを説明するのではなく、拡張と特定の使用に固有のプライバシープロパティを説明することが期待されます設計時に予測され、予測される拡張機能の

3. Terminology
3. 用語

This section defines basic terms used in this document, with references to pre-existing definitions as appropriate. As in [RFC4949], each entry is preceded by a dollar sign ($) and a space for automated searching. Note that this document does not try to attempt to define the term 'privacy' with a brief definition. Instead, privacy is the sum of what is contained in this document. We therefore follow the approach taken by [RFC3552]. Examples of several different brief definitions are provided in [RFC4949].

このセクションでは、このドキュメントで使用される基本的な用語を定義し、必要に応じて既存の定義を参照します。 [RFC4949]と同様に、各エントリの前にはドル記号($)と自動検索用のスペースが付いています。このドキュメントは、「プライバシー」という用語を簡単な定義で定義しようとするものではないことに注意してください。代わりに、プライバシーはこのドキュメントに含まれているものの合計です。したがって、[RFC3552]が採用するアプローチに従います。いくつかの異なる簡単な定義の例が[RFC4949]で提供されています。

3.1. Entities
3.1. エンティティ

Several of these terms are further elaborated in Section 4.


$ Attacker: An entity that works against one or more privacy protection goals. Unlike observers, attackers' behavior is unauthorized.


$ Eavesdropper: A type of attacker that passively observes an initiator's communications without the initiator's knowledge or authorization. See [RFC4949].

$盗聴者:イニシエーターの知識や許可なしにイニシエーターの通信を受動的に監視する攻撃者の一種。 [RFC4949]を参照してください。

$ Enabler: A protocol entity that facilitates communication between an initiator and a recipient without being directly in the communications path.


$ Individual: A human being.


$ Initiator: A protocol entity that initiates communications with a recipient.

$ Initiator:受信者との通信を開始するプロトコルエンティティ。

$ Intermediary: A protocol entity that sits between the initiator and the recipient and is necessary for the initiator and recipient to communicate. Unlike an eavesdropper, an intermediary is an entity that is part of the communication architecture and therefore at least tacitly authorized. For example, a SIP [RFC3261] proxy is an intermediary in the SIP architecture.

$仲介:開始者と受信者の間に位置し、開始者と受信者が通信するために必要なプロトコルエンティティ。盗聴者とは異なり、仲介者は通信アーキテクチャの一部であり、したがって暗黙のうちに許可されたエンティティです。たとえば、SIP [RFC3261]プロキシはSIPアーキテクチャの仲介者です。

$ Observer: An entity that is able to observe and collect information from communications, potentially posing privacy threats, depending on the context. As defined in this document, initiators, recipients, intermediaries, and enablers can all be observers. Observers are distinguished from eavesdroppers by being at least tacitly authorized.


$ Recipient: A protocol entity that receives communications from an initiator.


3.2. Data and Analysis
3.2. データと分析

$ Attack: An intentional act by which an entity attempts to violate an individual's privacy. See [RFC4949].

$攻撃:エンティティが個人のプライバシーを侵害しようとする意図的な行為。 [RFC4949]を参照してください。

$ Correlation: The combination of various pieces of information that relate to an individual or that obtain that characteristic when combined.


$ Fingerprint: A set of information elements that identifies a device or application instance.


$ Fingerprinting: The process of an observer or attacker uniquely identifying (with a sufficiently high probability) a device or application instance based on multiple information elements communicated to the observer or attacker. See [EFF].

$フィンガープリント:オブザーバーまたは攻撃者に伝達された複数の情報要素に基づいて、デバイスまたはアプリケーションインスタンスを(十分に高い確率で)一意に識別するオブザーバーまたは攻撃者のプロセス。 [EFF]を参照してください。

$ Item of Interest (IOI): Any data item that an observer or attacker might be interested in. This includes attributes, identifiers, identities, communications content, and the fact that a communication interaction has taken place.


$ Personal Data: Any information relating to an individual who can be identified, directly or indirectly.


$ (Protocol) Interaction: A unit of communication within a particular protocol. A single interaction may be comprised of a single message between an initiator and recipient or multiple messages, depending on the protocol.


$ Traffic Analysis: The inference of information from observation of traffic flows (presence, absence, amount, direction, timing, packet size, packet composition, and/or frequency), even if flows are encrypted. See [RFC4949].

$トラフィック分析:フローが暗号化されている場合でも、トラフィックフロー(存在、不在、量、方向、タイミング、パケットサイズ、パケット構成、および/または頻度)の観測からの情報の推論。 [RFC4949]を参照してください。

$ Undetectability: The inability of an observer or attacker to sufficiently distinguish whether an item of interest exists or not.


$ Unlinkability: Within a particular set of information, the inability of an observer or attacker to distinguish whether two items of interest are related or not (with a high enough degree of probability to be useful to the observer or attacker).


3.3. Identifiability
3.3. 識別可能性

$ Anonymity: The state of being anonymous.


$ Anonymity Set: A set of individuals that have the same attributes, making them indistinguishable from each other from the perspective of a particular attacker or observer.


$ Anonymous: A state of an individual in which an observer or attacker cannot identify the individual within a set of other individuals (the anonymity set).


$ Attribute: A property of an individual.


$ Identifiability: The extent to which an individual is identifiable.


$ Identifiable: A property in which an individual's identity is capable of being known to an observer or attacker.


$ Identification: The linking of information to a particular individual to infer an individual's identity or to allow the inference of an individual's identity in some context.


$ Identified: A state in which an individual's identity is known.

$ Identified:個人のアイデンティティが知られている状態。

$ Identifier: A data object uniquely referring to a specific identity of a protocol entity or individual in some context. See [RFC4949]. Identifiers can be based upon natural names -- official names, personal names, and/or nicknames -- or can be artificial (for example, x9z32vb). However, identifiers are by definition unique within their context of use, while natural names are often not unique.

$識別子:特定のコンテキストでプロトコルエンティティまたは個人の特定のIDを一意に参照するデータオブジェクト。 [RFC4949]を参照してください。識別子は、正式名、個人名、ニックネームなどの自然名に基づくことも、人工的なもの(たとえば、x9z32vb)にすることもできます。ただし、自然名は多くの場合一意ではありませんが、識別子は定義上、使用のコンテキスト内で一意です。

$ Identity: Any subset of an individual's attributes, including names, that identifies the individual within a given context. Individuals usually have multiple identities for use in different contexts.

$ Identity:特定のコンテキスト内で個人を識別する、名前を含む個人の属性のサブセット。個人は通常、異なるコンテキストで使用するために複数のIDを持っています。

$ Identity Confidentiality: A property of an individual where only the recipient can sufficiently identify the individual within a set of other individuals. This can be a desirable property of authentication protocols.


$ Identity Provider: An entity (usually an organization) that is responsible for establishing, maintaining, securing, and vouching for the identities associated with individuals.

$ IDプロバイダー:個人に関連付けられたIDの確立、維持、保護、保証を担当するエンティティ(通常は組織)。

$ Official Name: A personal name for an individual that is registered in some official context (for example, the name on an individual's birth certificate). Official names are often not unique.


$ Personal Name: A natural name for an individual. Personal names are often not unique and often comprise given names in combination with a family name. An individual may have multiple personal names at any time and over a lifetime, including official names. From a technological perspective, it cannot always be determined whether a given reference to an individual is, or is based upon, the individual's personal name(s) (see Pseudonym).


$ Pseudonym: A name assumed by an individual in some context, unrelated to the individual's personal names known by others in that context, with an intent of not revealing the individual's identities associated with his or her other names. Pseudonyms are often not unique.


$ Pseudonymity: The state of being pseudonymous.


$ Pseudonymous: A property of an individual in which the individual is identified by a pseudonym.


$ Real Name: See Personal Name and Official Name.


$ Relying Party: An entity that relies on assertions of individuals' identities from identity providers in order to provide services to individuals. In effect, the relying party delegates aspects of identity management to the identity provider(s). Such delegation requires protocol exchanges, trust, and a common understanding of semantics of information exchanged between the relying party and the identity provider.


4. Communications Model
4. コミュニケーションモデル

To understand attacks in the privacy-harm sense, it is helpful to consider the overall communication architecture and different actors' roles within it. Consider a protocol entity, the "initiator", that initiates communication with some recipient. Privacy analysis is most relevant for protocols with use cases in which the initiator acts on behalf of an individual (or different individuals at different times). It is this individual whose privacy is potentially threatened (although in some instances an initiator communicates information about another individual, in which case both of their privacy interests will be implicated).


Communications may be direct between the initiator and the recipient, or they may involve an application-layer intermediary (such as a proxy, cache, or relay) that is necessary for the two parties to communicate. In some cases, this intermediary stays in the communication path for the entire duration of the communication; sometimes it is only used for communication establishment, for either inbound or outbound communication. In some cases, there may be a series of intermediaries that are traversed. At lower layers, additional entities involved in packet forwarding may interfere with privacy protection goals as well.


Some communications tasks require multiple protocol interactions with different entities. For example, a request to an HTTP server may be preceded by an interaction between the initiator and an Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) server for network access and to a Domain Name System (DNS) server for name resolution. In this case, the HTTP server is the recipient and the other entities are enablers of the initiator-to-recipient communication. Similarly, a single communication with the recipient might generate further protocol interactions between either the initiator or the recipient and other entities, and the roles of the entities might change with each interaction. For example, an HTTP request might trigger interactions with an authentication server or with other resource servers wherein the recipient becomes an initiator in those later interactions.


Thus, when conducting privacy analysis of an architecture that involves multiple communications phases, the entities involved may take on different -- or opposing -- roles from a privacy considerations perspective in each phase. Understanding the privacy implications of the architecture as a whole may require a separate analysis of each phase.


Protocol design is often predicated on the notion that recipients, intermediaries, and enablers are assumed to be authorized to receive and handle data from initiators. As [RFC3552] explains, "we assume that the end systems engaging in a protocol exchange have not themselves been compromised". However, privacy analysis requires questioning this assumption, since systems are often compromised for the purpose of obtaining personal data.

プロトコルの設計は、多くの場合、受信者、仲介者、およびイネーブラがイニシエータからのデータの受信および処理を許可されていると見なされるという概念に基づいています。 [RFC3552]が説明しているように、「プロトコル交換に従事しているエンドシステム自体は危険にさらされていないと想定しています」。ただし、個人データを取得する目的でシステムが侵害されることが多いため、プライバシー分析ではこの仮定に疑問を投げかける必要があります。

Although recipients, intermediaries, and enablers may not generally be considered as attackers, they may all pose privacy threats (depending on the context) because they are able to observe, collect, process, and transfer privacy-relevant data. These entities are collectively described below as "observers" to distinguish them from traditional attackers. From a privacy perspective, one important type of attacker is an eavesdropper: an entity that passively observes the initiator's communications without the initiator's knowledge or authorization.


The threat descriptions in the next section explain how observers and attackers might act to harm individuals' privacy. Different kinds of attacks may be feasible at different points in the communications path. For example, an observer could mount surveillance or identification attacks between the initiator and intermediary, or instead could surveil an enabler (e.g., by observing DNS queries from the initiator).


5. Privacy Threats
5. プライバシーの脅威

Privacy harms come in a number of forms, including harms to financial standing, reputation, solitude, autonomy, and safety. A victim of identity theft or blackmail, for example, may suffer a financial loss as a result. Reputational harm can occur when disclosure of information about an individual, whether true or false, subjects that individual to stigma, embarrassment, or loss of personal dignity. Intrusion or interruption of an individual's life or activities can harm the individual's ability to be left alone. When individuals or their activities are monitored, exposed, or at risk of exposure, those individuals may be stifled from expressing themselves, associating with others, and generally conducting their lives freely. They may also feel a general sense of unease, in that it is "creepy" to be monitored or to have data collected about them. In cases where such monitoring is for the purpose of stalking or violence (for example, monitoring communications to or from a domestic abuse shelter), it can put individuals in physical danger.


This section lists common privacy threats (drawing liberally from [Solove], as well as [CoE]), showing how each of them may cause individuals to incur privacy harms and providing examples of how these threats can exist on the Internet. This threat modeling is inspired by security threat analysis. Although it is not a perfect fit for assessing privacy risks in Internet protocols and systems, no better methodology has been developed to date.


Some privacy threats are already considered in Internet protocols as a matter of routine security analysis. Others are more pure privacy threats that existing security considerations do not usually address. The threats described here are divided into those that may also be considered security threats and those that are primarily privacy threats.


Note that an individual's awareness of and consent to the practices described below may change an individual's perception of and concern for the extent to which they threaten privacy. If an individual authorizes surveillance of his own activities, for example, the individual may be able to take actions to mitigate the harms associated with it or may consider the risk of harm to be tolerable.


5.1. Combined Security-Privacy Threats
5.1. セキュリティとプライバシーの複合脅威
5.1.1. Surveillance
5.1.1. 監視

Surveillance is the observation or monitoring of an individual's communications or activities. The effects of surveillance on the individual can range from anxiety and discomfort to behavioral changes such as inhibition and self-censorship, and even to the perpetration of violence against the individual. The individual need not be aware of the surveillance for it to impact his or her privacy -- the possibility of surveillance may be enough to harm individual autonomy.


Surveillance can impact privacy, even if the individuals being surveilled are not identifiable or if their communications are encrypted. For example, an observer or eavesdropper that conducts traffic analysis may be able to determine what type of traffic is present (real-time communications or bulk file transfers, for example) or which protocols are in use, even if the observed communications are encrypted or the communicants are unidentifiable. This kind of surveillance can adversely impact the individuals involved by causing them to become targets for further investigation or enforcement activities. It may also enable attacks that are specific to the protocol, such as redirection to a specialized interception point or protocol-specific denials of service. Protocols that use predictable packet sizes or timing or include fixed tokens at predictable offsets within a packet can facilitate this kind of surveillance.


Surveillance can be conducted by observers or eavesdroppers at any point along the communications path. Confidentiality protections (as discussed in Section 3 of [RFC3552]) are necessary to prevent surveillance of the content of communications. To prevent traffic analysis or other surveillance of communications patterns, other measures may be necessary, such as [Tor].

監視は、通信経路に沿った任意の場所で監視者または盗聴者が行うことができます。 ([RFC3552]のセクション3で説明されているように)機密保護は、通信内容の監視を防ぐために必要です。トラフィック分析やその他の通信パターンの監視を防ぐために、[Tor]などの他の対策が必要になる場合があります。

5.1.2. Stored Data Compromise
5.1.2. 保存されたデータの侵害

End systems that do not take adequate measures to secure stored data from unauthorized or inappropriate access expose individuals to potential financial, reputational, or physical harm.


Protecting against stored data compromise is typically outside the scope of IETF protocols. However, a number of common protocol functions -- key management, access control, or operational logging, for example -- require the storage of data about initiators of communications. When requiring or recommending that information about initiators or their communications be stored or logged by end systems (see, e.g., RFC 6302 [RFC6302]), it is important to recognize the potential for that information to be compromised and for that potential to be weighed against the benefits of data storage. Any recipient, intermediary, or enabler that stores data may be vulnerable to compromise. (Note that stored data compromise is distinct from purposeful disclosure, which is discussed in Section 5.2.4.)

保存されたデータの侵害に対する保護は、通常、IETFプロトコルの範囲外です。ただし、多くの一般的なプロトコル機能(キー管理、アクセス制御、操作ログなど)では、通信の開始者に関するデータの保存が必要です。イニシエータまたはその通信に関する情報をエンドシステムで保存または記録することを要求または推奨する場合(たとえば、RFC 6302 [RFC6302]を参照)、その情報が危険にさらされる可能性と、その可能性が考慮される可能性を認識することが重要です。データストレージの利点に反する。データを保存する受信者、仲介者、またはイネーブラーは、セキュリティ侵害を受ける可能性があります。 (保存されたデータの侵害は、セクション5.2.4で説明されている意図的な開示とは異なります。)

5.1.3. Intrusion
5.1.3. 侵入

Intrusion consists of invasive acts that disturb or interrupt one's life or activities. Intrusion can thwart individuals' desires to be left alone, sap their time or attention, or interrupt their activities. This threat is focused on intrusion into one's life rather than direct intrusion into one's communications. The latter is captured in Section 5.1.1.


Unsolicited messages and denial-of-service attacks are the most common types of intrusion on the Internet. Intrusion can be perpetrated by any attacker that is capable of sending unwanted traffic to the initiator.


5.1.4. Misattribution
5.1.4. 誤配

Misattribution occurs when data or communications related to one individual are attributed to another. Misattribution can result in adverse reputational, financial, or other consequences for individuals that are misidentified.


Misattribution in the protocol context comes as a result of using inadequate or insecure forms of identity or authentication, and is sometimes related to spoofing. For example, as [RFC6269] notes, abuse mitigation is often conducted on the basis of the source IP address, such that connections from individual IP addresses may be prevented or temporarily blacklisted if abusive activity is determined to be sourced from those addresses. However, in the case where a single IP address is shared by multiple individuals, those penalties may be suffered by all individuals sharing the address, even if they were not involved in the abuse. This threat can be mitigated by using identity management mechanisms with proper forms of authentication (ideally with cryptographic properties) so that actions can be attributed uniquely to an individual to provide the basis for accountability without generating false positives.


5.2. Privacy-Specific Threats
5.2. プライバシー固有の脅威
5.2.1. Correlation
5.2.1. 相関

Correlation is the combination of various pieces of information related to an individual or that obtain that characteristic when combined. Correlation can defy people's expectations of the limits of what others know about them. It can increase the power that those doing the correlating have over individuals as well as correlators' ability to pass judgment, threatening individual autonomy and reputation.


Correlation is closely related to identification. Internet protocols can facilitate correlation by allowing individuals' activities to be tracked and combined over time. The use of persistent or infrequently replaced identifiers at any layer of the stack can facilitate correlation. For example, an initiator's persistent use of the same device ID, certificate, or email address across multiple interactions could allow recipients (and observers) to correlate all of the initiator's communications over time.


As an example, consider Transport Layer Security (TLS) session resumption [RFC5246] or TLS session resumption without server-side state [RFC5077]. In RFC 5246 [RFC5246], a server provides the client with a session_id in the ServerHello message and caches the master_secret for later exchanges. When the client initiates a new connection with the server, it re-uses the previously obtained session_id in its ClientHello message. The server agrees to resume the session by using the same session_id and the previously stored master_secret for the generation of the TLS Record Layer security association. RFC 5077 [RFC5077] borrows from the session resumption design idea, but the server encapsulates all state information into a ticket instead of caching it. An attacker who is able to observe the protocol exchanges between the TLS client and the TLS server is able to link the initial exchange to subsequently resumed TLS sessions when the session_id and the ticket are exchanged in the clear (which is the case with data exchanged in the initial handshake messages).

例として、トランスポート層セキュリティ(TLS)セッションの再開[RFC5246]またはサーバー側の状態なしのTLSセッションの再開[RFC5077]を検討してください。 RFC 5246 [RFC5246]では、サーバーはクライアントにServerHelloメッセージのsession_idを提供し、後で交換するためにmaster_secretをキャッシュします。クライアントがサーバーとの新しい接続を開始すると、以前に取得したsession_idをClientHelloメッセージで再利用します。サーバーは、TLS Record Layerセキュリティアソシエーションの生成に同じsession_idと以前に保存されたmaster_secretを使用してセッションを再開することに同意します。 RFC 5077 [RFC5077]はセッション再開設計のアイデアを取り入れていますが、サーバーはすべての状態情報をキャッシュするのではなく、チケットにカプセル化します。 TLSクライアントとTLSサーバー間のプロトコル交換を監視できる攻撃者は、session_idとチケットがクリアテキストで交換されるときに、最初の交換をその後再開されたTLSセッションにリンクすることができます(データ交換の場合)最初のハンドシェイクメッセージ)。

In theory, any observer or attacker that receives an initiator's communications can engage in correlation. The extent of the potential for correlation will depend on what data the entity receives from the initiator and has access to otherwise. Often, intermediaries only require a small amount of information for message routing and/or security. In theory, protocol mechanisms could ensure that end-to-end information is not made accessible to these entities, but in practice the difficulty of deploying end-to-end security procedures, additional messaging or computational overhead, and other business or legal requirements often slow or prevent the deployment of end-to-end security mechanisms, giving intermediaries greater exposure to initiators' data than is strictly necessary from a technical point of view.


5.2.2. Identification
5.2.2. 識別

Identification is the linking of information to a particular individual to infer an individual's identity or to allow the inference of an individual's identity. In some contexts, it is perfectly legitimate to identify individuals, whereas in others, identification may potentially stifle individuals' activities or expression by inhibiting their ability to be anonymous or pseudonymous. Identification also makes it easier for individuals to be explicitly controlled by others (e.g., governments) and to be treated differentially compared to other individuals.


Many protocols provide functionality to convey the idea that some means has been provided to validate that entities are who they claim to be. Often, this is accomplished with cryptographic authentication. Furthermore, many protocol identifiers, such as those used in SIP or the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP), may allow for the direct identification of individuals. Protocol identifiers may also contribute indirectly to identification via correlation. For example, a web site that does not directly authenticate users may be able to match its HTTP header logs with logs from another site that does authenticate users, rendering users on the first site identifiable.

多くのプロトコルは、エンティティーが本人であると主張する人物であることを検証するためにいくつかの手段が提供されているという考えを伝える機能を提供します。多くの場合、これは暗号化認証で行われます。さらに、SIPやExtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol(XMPP)で使用されているものなど、多くのプロトコル識別子により、個人を直接識別することができます。プロトコル識別子は、相関を介した識別に間接的に寄与する場合もあります。たとえば、ユーザーを直接認証しないWebサイトは、HTTPヘッダーログを、ユーザーを認証する別のサイトのログと照合して、最初のサイトのユーザーを識別可能にすることができます。

As with correlation, any observer or attacker may be able to engage in identification, depending on the information about the initiator that is available via the protocol mechanism or other channels.


5.2.3. Secondary Use
5.2.3. 二次利用

Secondary use is the use of collected information about an individual without the individual's consent for a purpose different from that for which the information was collected. Secondary use may violate people's expectations or desires. The potential for secondary use can generate uncertainty as to how one's information will be used in the future, potentially discouraging information exchange in the first place. Secondary use encompasses any use of data, including disclosure.


One example of secondary use would be an authentication server that uses a network access server's Access-Requests to track an initiator's location. Any observer or attacker could potentially make unwanted secondary uses of initiators' data. Protecting against secondary use is typically outside the scope of IETF protocols.


5.2.4. Disclosure
5.2.4. 開示

Disclosure is the revelation of information about an individual that affects the way others judge the individual. Disclosure can violate individuals' expectations of the confidentiality of the data they share. The threat of disclosure may deter people from engaging in certain activities for fear of reputational harm, or simply because they do not wish to be observed.


Any observer or attacker that receives data about an initiator may engage in disclosure. Sometimes disclosure is unintentional because system designers do not realize that information being exchanged relates to individuals. The most common way for protocols to limit disclosure is by providing access control mechanisms (discussed in Section 5.2.5). A further example is provided by the IETF geolocation privacy architecture [RFC6280], which supports a way for users to express a preference that their location information not be disclosed beyond the intended recipient.


5.2.5. Exclusion
5.2.5. 除外

Exclusion is the failure to allow individuals to know about the data that others have about them and to participate in its handling and use. Exclusion reduces accountability on the part of entities that maintain information about people and creates a sense of vulnerability in relation to individuals' ability to control how information about them is collected and used.


The most common way for Internet protocols to be involved in enforcing exclusion is through access control mechanisms. The presence architecture developed in the IETF is a good example where individuals are included in the control of information about them. Using a rules expression language (e.g., presence authorization rules [RFC5025]), presence clients can authorize the specific conditions under which their presence information may be shared.

インターネットプロトコルが除外の実施に関与する最も一般的な方法は、アクセス制御メカニズムを使用することです。 IETFで開発されたプレゼンスアーキテクチャは、個人がそれらに関する情報の制御に含まれる良い例です。ルール式言語(たとえば、プレゼンス承認ルール[RFC5025])を使用して、プレゼンスクライアントは、プレゼンス情報を共有できる特定の条件を承認できます。

Exclusion is primarily considered problematic when the recipient fails to involve the initiator in decisions about data collection, handling, and use. Eavesdroppers engage in exclusion by their very nature, since their data collection and handling practices are covert.


6. Threat Mitigations
6. 脅威の軽減

Privacy is notoriously difficult to measure and quantify. The extent to which a particular protocol, system, or architecture "protects" or "enhances" privacy is dependent on a large number of factors relating to its design, use, and potential misuse. However, there are certain widely recognized classes of mitigations against the threats discussed in Section 5. This section describes three categories of relevant mitigations: (1) data minimization, (2) user participation, and (3) security. The privacy mitigations described in this section can loosely be mapped to existing privacy principles, such as the Fair Information Practices, but they have been adapted to fit the target audience of this document.


6.1. Data Minimization
6.1. データの最小化

Data minimization refers to collecting, using, disclosing, and storing the minimal data necessary to perform a task. Reducing the amount of data exchanged reduces the amount of data that can be misused or leaked.


Data minimization can be effectuated in a number of different ways, including by limiting collection, use, disclosure, retention, identifiability, sensitivity, and access to personal data. Limiting the data collected by protocol elements to only what is necessary (collection limitation) is the most straightforward way to help reduce privacy risks associated with the use of the protocol. In some cases, protocol designers may also be able to recommend limits to the use or retention of data, although protocols themselves are not often capable of controlling these properties.


However, the most direct application of data minimization to protocol design is limiting identifiability. Reducing the identifiability of data by using pseudonyms or no identifiers at all helps to weaken the link between an individual and his or her communications. Allowing for the periodic creation of new or randomized identifiers reduces the possibility that multiple protocol interactions or communications can be correlated back to the same individual. The following sections explore a number of different properties related to identifiability that protocol designers may seek to achieve.


Data minimization mitigates the following threats: surveillance, stored data compromise, correlation, identification, secondary use, and disclosure.


6.1.1. Anonymity
6.1.1. 匿名

To enable anonymity of an individual, there must exist a set of individuals that appear to have the same attribute(s) as the individual. To the attacker or the observer, these individuals must appear indistinguishable from each other. The set of all such individuals is known as the anonymity set, and membership of this set may vary over time.


The composition of the anonymity set depends on the knowledge of the observer or attacker. Thus, anonymity is relative with respect to the observer or attacker. An initiator may be anonymous only within a set of potential initiators -- its initiator anonymity set -- which itself may be a subset of all individuals that may initiate communications. Conversely, a recipient may be anonymous only within a set of potential recipients -- its recipient anonymity set. Both anonymity sets may be disjoint, may overlap, or may be the same.


As an example, consider RFC 3325 (P-Asserted-Identity (PAI)) [RFC3325], an extension for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) that allows an individual, such as a Voice over IP (VoIP) caller, to instruct an intermediary that he or she trusts not to populate the SIP From header field with the individual's authenticated and verified identity. The recipient of the call, as well as any other entity outside of the individual's trust domain, would therefore only learn that the SIP message (typically a SIP INVITE) was sent with a header field 'From: "Anonymous" <sip:anonymous@anonymous.invalid>' rather than the individual's address-of-record, which is typically thought of as the "public address" of the user. When PAI is used, the individual becomes anonymous within the initiator anonymity set that is populated by every individual making use of that specific intermediary.

例として、RFC 3325(P-Asserted-Identity(PAI))[RFC3325]を検討してください。これは、Voice over IP(VoIP)の呼び出し元などの個人が指示できるようにする、Session Initiation Protocol(SIP)の拡張です。 SIP Fromヘッダーフィールドに個人の認証および検証済みのIDを入力しないと信頼している仲介者。したがって、呼び出しの受信者、および個人の信頼ドメイン外の他のエンティティは、SIPメッセージ(通常はSIP INVITE)がヘッダーフィールド 'From: "Anonymous" <sip:anonymous @で送信されたことを知るだけです。 anonymous.invalid> 'ではなく、通常はユーザーの「パブリックアドレス」と見なされる個人のレコードのアドレス。 PAIを使用すると、その特定の仲介者を利用するすべての個人によって入力される開始者匿名セット内で、個人が匿名になります。

Note that this example ignores the fact that the recipient may infer or obtain personal data from the other SIP payloads (e.g., SIP Via and Contact headers, the Session Description Protocol (SDP)). The implication is that PAI only attempts to address a particular threat, namely the disclosure of identity (in the From header) with respect to the recipient. This caveat makes the analysis of the specific protocol extension easier but cannot be assumed when conducting analysis of an entire architecture.

この例では、受信者が他のSIPペイロード(SIP ViaおよびContactヘッダー、Session Description Protocol(SDP)など)から個人データを推測または取得する可能性があるという事実を無視していることに注意してください。つまり、PAIは特定の脅威、つまり受信者に関する(Fromヘッダー内の)IDの開示にのみ対処しようとします。この警告により、特定のプロトコル拡張の分析が容易になりますが、アーキテクチャ全体の分析を行う場合は想定できません。

6.1.2. Pseudonymity
6.1.2. 仮名

In the context of Internet protocols, almost all identifiers can be nicknames or pseudonyms, since there is typically no requirement to use personal names in protocols. However, in certain scenarios it is reasonable to assume that personal names will be used (with vCard [RFC6350], for example).

通常、プロトコルで個人名を使用する必要がないため、インターネットプロトコルのコンテキストでは、ほとんどすべての識別子をニックネームまたは仮名にすることができます。ただし、特定のシナリオでは、個人名が使用されると想定するのが妥当です(たとえば、vCard [RFC6350]で)。

Pseudonymity is strengthened when less personal data can be linked to the pseudonym; when the same pseudonym is used less often and across fewer contexts; and when independently chosen pseudonyms are more frequently used for new actions (making them, from an observer's or attacker's perspective, unlinkable).


For Internet protocols, the following are important considerations: whether protocols allow pseudonyms to be changed without human interaction, the default length of pseudonym lifetimes, to whom pseudonyms are exposed, how individuals are able to control disclosure, how often pseudonyms can be changed, and the consequences of changing them.


6.1.3. Identity Confidentiality
6.1.3. アイデンティティ機密性

An initiator has identity confidentiality when any party other than the recipient cannot sufficiently identify the initiator within the anonymity set. The size of the anonymity set has a direct impact on identity confidentiality, since the smaller the set is, the easier it is to identify the initiator. Identity confidentiality aims to provide a protection against eavesdroppers and intermediaries rather than against the intended communication endpoints.

受信者以外の当事者が匿名セット内のイニシエーターを十分に識別できない場合、イニシエーターはID機密性を持ちます。匿名セットのサイズは、IDの機密性に直接影響します。セットが小さいほど、開始者の識別が容易になるためです。 IDの機密性は、意図された通信エンドポイントではなく、盗聴者および仲介者に対する保護を提供することを目的としています。

As an example, consider the network access authentication procedures utilizing the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) [RFC3748]. EAP includes an identity exchange where the Identity Response is primarily used for routing purposes and selecting which EAP method to use. Since EAP Identity Requests and Identity Responses are sent in cleartext, eavesdroppers and intermediaries along the communication path between the EAP peer and the EAP server can snoop on the identity, which is encoded in the form of the Network Access Identifier (NAI) as defined in RFC 4282 [RFC4282]. To address this threat, as discussed in RFC 4282 [RFC4282], the username part of the NAI (but not the realm part) can be hidden from these eavesdroppers and intermediaries with the cryptographic support offered by EAP methods. Identity confidentiality has become a recommended design criteria for EAP (see [RFC4017]). The EAP method for 3rd Generation Authentication and Key Agreement (EAP-AKA) [RFC4187], for example, protects the EAP peer's identity against passive adversaries by utilizing temporal identities. The EAP-Internet Key Exchange Protocol version 2 (EAP-IKEv2) method [RFC5106] is an example of an EAP method that offers protection against active attackers with regard to the individual's identity.

例として、拡張認証プロトコル(EAP)[RFC3748]を利用したネットワークアクセス認証手順を考えてみましょう。 EAPには、アイデンティティー交換が主にルーティングの目的で使用され、使用するEAPメソッドを選択するアイデンティティー交換が含まれます。 EAP ID要求とID応答はクリアテキストで送信されるため、EAPピアとEAPサーバーの間の通信パスに沿った盗聴者と仲介者は、ネットワークアクセスID(NAI)の形式でエンコードされたIDをスヌーピングできます。 RFC 4282 [RFC4282]。この脅威に対処するには、RFC 4282 [RFC4282]で説明されているように、NAIのユーザー名の部分(レルムの部分ではない)をこれらの盗聴者やEAPメソッドによって提供される暗号化サポートの仲介者から隠すことができます。 IDの機密性は、EAPの推奨設計基準になっています([RFC4017]を参照)。たとえば、第3世代認証およびキー合意(EAP-AKA)のEAP方式(EAP-AKA)[RFC4187]は、一時的なIDを利用して、EAPピアのIDをパッシブな敵から保護します。 EAP-インターネットキー交換プロトコルバージョン2(EAP-IKEv2)メソッド[RFC5106]は、個人のIDに関してアクティブな攻撃者に対する保護を提供するEAPメソッドの例です。

6.1.4. Data Minimization within Identity Management
6.1.4. Identity Management内のデータの最小化

Modern systems are increasingly relying on multi-party transactions to authenticate individuals. Many of these systems make use of an identity provider that is responsible for providing AAA functionality to relying parties that offer some protected resources. To facilitate these functions, an identity provider will usually go through a process of verifying the individual's identity and issuing credentials to the individual. When an individual seeks to make use of a service provided by the relying party, the relying party relies on the authentication assertions provided by its identity provider. Note that in more sophisticated scenarios the authentication assertions are traits that demonstrate the individual's capabilities and roles. The authorization responsibility may also be shared between the identity provider and the relying party and does not necessarily need to reside only with the identity provider.


Such systems have the ability to support a number of properties that minimize data collection in different ways:


In certain use cases, relying parties do not need to know the real name or date of birth of an individual (for example, when the individual's age is the only attribute that needs to be authenticated).


Relying parties that collude can be prevented from using an individual's credentials to track the individual. That is, two different relying parties can be prevented from determining that the same individual has authenticated to both of them. This typically requires identity management protocol support as well as support by both the relying party and the identity provider.


The identity provider can be prevented from knowing which relying parties an individual interacted with. This requires, at a minimum, avoiding direct communication between the identity provider and the relying party at the time when access to a resource by the initiator is made.


6.2. User Participation
6.2. ユーザー参加

As explained in Section 5.2.5, data collection and use that happen "in secret", without the individual's knowledge, are apt to violate the individual's expectation of privacy and may create incentives for misuse of data. As a result, privacy regimes tend to include provisions to require informing individuals about data collection and use and involving them in decisions about the treatment of their data. In an engineering context, supporting the goal of user participation usually means providing ways for users to control the data that is shared about them. It may also mean providing ways for users to signal how they expect their data to be used and shared. Different protocol and architectural designs can make supporting user participation (for example, the ability to support a dialog box for user interaction) easier or harder; for example, OAuth-based services may have more natural hooks for user input than AAA services.


User participation mitigates the following threats: surveillance, secondary use, disclosure, and exclusion.


6.3. Security
6.3. 安全保障

Keeping data secure at rest and in transit is another important component of privacy protection. As they are described in Section 2 of [RFC3552], a number of security goals also serve to enhance privacy:

保管中および転送中のデータを安全に保つことは、プライバシー保護のもう1つの重要なコンポーネントです。 [RFC3552]のセクション2で説明されているように、いくつかのセキュリティ目標もプライバシーの強化に役立ちます。

o Confidentiality: Keeping data secret from unintended listeners.

o 機密性:意図しないリスナーからデータを秘密に保ちます。

o Peer entity authentication: Ensuring that the endpoint of a communication is the one that is intended (in support of maintaining confidentiality).

o ピアエンティティ認証:通信のエンドポイントが意図したものであることを保証します(機密性の維持をサポートするため)。

o Unauthorized usage: Limiting data access to only those users who are authorized. (Note that this goal also falls within data minimization.)

o 不正使用:データアクセスを許可されたユーザーのみに制限します。 (この目標もデータの最小化に含まれることに注意してください。)

o Inappropriate usage: Limiting how authorized users can use data. (Note that this goal also falls within data minimization.)

o 不適切な使用:許可されたユーザーがデータを使用する方法を制限します。 (この目標もデータの最小化に含まれることに注意してください。)

Note that even when these goals are achieved, the existence of items of interest -- attributes, identifiers, identities, communications, actions (such as the sending or receiving of a communication), or anything else an attacker or observer might be interested in -- may still be detectable, even if they are not readable. Thus, undetectability, in which an observer or attacker cannot sufficiently distinguish whether an item of interest exists or not, may be considered as a further security goal (albeit one that can be extremely difficult to accomplish).

これらの目標が達成された場合でも、関心のある項目の存在-属性、識別子、アイデンティティ、通信、アクション(通信の送信または受信など)、または攻撃者やオブザーバーが関心を持っている可能性のある何か- -読み取れない場合でも、検出できる場合があります。したがって、オブザーバーまたは攻撃者が関心のあるアイテムが存在するかどうかを十分に区別できない検出不能は、さらなるセキュリティ目標と見なすことができます(ただし、達成するのは非常に難しい場合があります)。

Detection of the protocols or applications in use via traffic analysis may be particularly difficult to defend against. As with the anonymity of individuals, achieving "protocol anonymity" requires that multiple protocols or applications exist that appear to have the same attributes -- packet sizes, content, token locations, or inter-packet timing, for example. An attacker or observer will not be able to use traffic analysis to identify which protocol or application is in use if multiple protocols or applications are indistinguishable.


Defending against the threat of traffic analysis will be possible to different extents for different protocols, may depend on implementation- or use-specific details, and may depend on which other protocols already exist and whether they share similar traffic characteristics. The defenses will also vary relative to what the protocol is designed to do; for example, in some situations randomizing packet sizes, timing, or token locations will reduce the threat of traffic analysis, whereas in other situations (real-time communications, for example) holding some or all of those factors constant is a more appropriate defense. See "Guidelines for the Use of Variable Bit Rate Audio with Secure RTP" [RFC6562] for an example of how these kinds of trade-offs should be evaluated.


By providing proper security protection, the following threats can be mitigated: surveillance, stored data compromise, misattribution, secondary use, disclosure, and intrusion.


7. Guidelines
7. ガイドライン

This section provides guidance for document authors in the form of a questionnaire about a protocol being designed. The questionnaire may be useful at any point in the design process, particularly after document authors have developed a high-level protocol model as described in [RFC4101].


Note that the guidance provided in this section does not recommend specific practices. The range of protocols developed in the IETF is too broad to make recommendations about particular uses of data or how privacy might be balanced against other design goals. However, by carefully considering the answers to each question, document authors should be able to produce a comprehensive analysis that can serve as the basis for discussion of whether the protocol adequately protects against privacy threats. This guidance is meant to help the thought process of privacy analysis; it does not provide specific directions for how to write a privacy considerations section.

このセクションで提供されるガイダンスは、特定のプラクティスを推奨するものではないことに注意してください。 IETFで開発されたプロトコルの範囲は広すぎるため、データの特定の使用や、プライバシーを他の設計目標とどのようにバランスさせるかについての推奨を行うことはできません。ただし、各質問への回答を慎重に検討することにより、ドキュメントの作成者は、プロトコルがプライバシーの脅威から適切に保護されているかどうかを検討するための基礎として役立つ包括的な分析を作成できるはずです。このガイダンスは、プライバシー分析の思考プロセスを支援することを目的としています。プライバシーに関する考慮事項セクションの記述方法についての具体的な指示は提供していません。

The framework is divided into four sections: three sections that address each of the mitigation classes from Section 6, plus a general section. Security is not fully elaborated, since substantial guidance already exists in [RFC3552].

フレームワークは4つのセクションに分かれています。セクション6の各軽減策クラスに対応する3つのセクションと一般的なセクションです。 [RFC3552]には実質的なガイダンスがすでに存在するため、セキュリティは完全には詳しく説明されていません。

The following section gives an example of the threat analysis and threat mitigations recommended by this document. It covers a particularly difficult application protocol, presence, to try to demonstrate these principles on an architecture that is vulnerable to many of the threats described above. This text is not intended as an example of a privacy considerations section that might appear in an IETF specification, but rather as an example of the thinking that should go into the design of a protocol when considering privacy as a first principle.


A presence service, as defined in the abstract in [RFC2778], allows users of a communications service to monitor one another's availability and disposition in order to make decisions about communicating. Presence information is highly dynamic and generally characterizes whether a user is online or offline, busy or idle, away from communications devices or nearby, and the like. Necessarily, this information has certain privacy implications, and from the start the IETF approached this work with the aim of providing users with the controls to determine how their presence information would be shared. The Common Profile for Presence (CPP) [RFC3859] defines a set of logical operations for delivery of presence information. This abstract model is applicable to multiple presence systems. The SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions (SIMPLE) presence system [RFC3856] uses CPP as its baseline architecture, and the presence operations in the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) have also been mapped to CPP [RFC3922].

[RFC2778]の要約で定義されているプレゼンスサービスを使用すると、通信サービスのユーザーは、通信に関する意思決定を行うために、互いの可用性と性質を監視できます。プレゼンス情報は非常に動的であり、一般に、ユーザーがオンラインかオフラインか、ビジーかアイドルか、通信デバイスから離れているか近くにいるかなどを特徴付けます。必然的に、この情報には特定のプライバシーの影響があり、IETFは最初から、プレゼンス情報の共有方法を決定するためのコントロールをユーザーに提供する目的でこの作業に取り組みました。プレゼンスの共通プロファイル(CPP)[RFC3859]は、プレゼンス情報を配信するための一連の論理操作を定義しています。この抽象モデルは、複数のプレゼンスシステムに適用できます。 SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions(SIMPLE)プレゼンスシステム[RFC3856]はCPPをベースラインアーキテクチャとして使用し、Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol(XMPP)のプレゼンス操作もCPP [RFC3922]にマッピングされています。

The fundamental architecture defined in RFC 2778 and RFC 3859 is a mediated one. Clients (presentities in RFC 2778 terms) publish their presence information to presence servers, which in turn distribute information to authorized watchers. Presence servers thus retain presence information for an interval of time, until it either changes or expires, so that it can be revealed to authorized watchers upon request. This architecture mirrors existing pre-standard deployment models. The integration of an explicit authorization mechanism into the presence architecture has been widely successful in involving the end users in the decision-making process before sharing information. Nearly all presence systems deployed today provide such a mechanism, typically through a reciprocal authorization system by which a pair of users, when they agree to be "buddies", consent to divulge their presence information to one another. Buddylists are managed by servers but controlled by end users. Users can also explicitly block one another through a similar interface, and in some deployments it is desirable to provide "polite blocking" of various kinds.

RFC 2778およびRFC 3859で定義されている基本的なアーキテクチャは、仲介されたものです。クライアント(RFC 2778用語でのプレゼンティティ)は、プレゼンス情報をプレゼンスサーバーに発行し、次にプレゼンスサーバーが許可されたウォッチャーに情報を配信します。したがって、プレゼンスサーバーは、プレゼンス情報が変更または期限切れになるまで一定期間保持するため、リクエストに応じて、許可されたウォッチャーに公開できます。このアーキテクチャは、既存の先行標準導入モデルを反映しています。明示的な承認メカニズムをプレゼンスアーキテクチャに統合することで、情報を共有する前の意思決定プロセスにエンドユーザーを参加させることができます。今日配備されているほとんどすべてのプレゼンスシステムは、通常、相互認証システムを通じてこのようなメカニズムを提供します。これにより、ユーザーのペアが「バディ」であることに同意した場合、プレゼンス情報を互いに漏らすことに同意します。仏教徒はサーバーによって管理されますが、エンドユーザーによって制御されます。ユーザーは、同様のインターフェースを介して相互に明示的にブロックすることもできます。一部のデプロイメントでは、さまざまな種類の「ポライトブロック」を提供することが望ましい場合があります。

From a perspective of privacy design, however, the classical presence architecture represents nearly a worst-case scenario. In terms of data minimization, presentities share their sensitive information with presence services, and while services only share this presence information with watchers authorized by the user, no technical mechanism constrains those watchers from relaying presence to further third parties. Any of these entities could conceivably log or retain presence information indefinitely. The sensitivity cannot be mitigated by rendering the user anonymous, as it is indeed the purpose of the system to facilitate communications between users who know one another. The identifiers employed by users are long-lived and often contain personal information, including personal names and the domains of service providers. While users do participate in the construction of buddylists and blacklists, they do so with little prospect for accountability: the user effectively throws their presence information over the wall to a presence server that in turn distributes the information to watchers. Users typically have no way to verify that presence is being distributed only to authorized watchers, especially as it is the server that authenticates watchers, not the end user. Moreover, connections between the server and all publishers and consumers of presence data are an attractive target for eavesdroppers and require strong confidentiality mechanisms, though again the end user has no way to verify what mechanisms are in place between the presence server and a watcher.


Additionally, the sensitivity of presence information is not limited to the disposition and capability to communicate. Capabilities can reveal the type of device that a user employs, for example, and since multiple devices can publish the same user's presence, there are significant risks of allowing attackers to correlate user devices. An important extension to presence was developed to enable the support for location sharing. The effort to standardize protocols for systems sharing geolocation was started in the GEOPRIV working group. During the initial requirements and privacy threat analysis in the process of chartering the working group, it became clear that the system would require an underlying communication mechanism supporting user consent to share location information. The resemblance of these requirements to the presence framework was quickly recognized, and this design decision was documented in [RFC4079]. Location information thus mingles with other presence information available through the system to intermediaries and to authorized watchers.


Privacy concerns about presence information largely arise due to the built-in mediation of the presence architecture. The need for a presence server is motivated by two primary design requirements of presence: in the first place, the server can respond with an "offline" indication when the user is not online; in the second place, the server can compose presence information published by different devices under the user's control. Additionally, to facilitate the use of URIs as identifiers for entities, some service must operate a host with the domain name appearing in a presence URI, and in practical terms no commercial presence architecture would force end users to own and operate their own domain names. Many end users of applications like presence are behind NATs or firewalls and effectively cannot receive direct connections from the Internet -- the persistent bidirectional channel these clients open and maintain with a presence server is essential to the operation of the protocol.

プレゼンス情報に関するプライバシーの懸念は、主にプレゼンスアーキテクチャの組み込みメディエーションが原因で発生します。プレゼンスサーバーの必要性は、プレゼンスの2つの主要な設計要件によって動機付けられています。そもそも、ユーザーがオンラインでない場合、サーバーは "オフライン"の表示で応答できます。 2番目に、サーバーはユーザーの制御下にあるさまざまなデバイスによって公開されたプレゼンス情報を作成できます。さらに、エンティティの識別子としてのURIの使用を容易にするために、一部のサービスは、プレゼンスURIに表示されるドメイン名でホストを操作する必要があります。実際には、商用のプレゼンスアーキテクチャではエンドユーザーが自分のドメイン名を所有および操作する必要はありません。プレゼンスなどのアプリケーションの多くのエンドユーザーはNATまたはファイアウォールの背後にあり、インターネットから直接接続を効果的に受信できません。これらのクライアントがプレゼンスサーバーで開いて維持する永続的な双方向チャネルは、プロトコルの動作に不可欠です。

One must first ask if the trade-off of mediation for presence is worthwhile. Does a server need to be in the middle of all publications of presence information? It might seem that end-to-end encryption of the presence information could solve many of these problems. A presentity could encrypt the presence information with the public key of a watcher and only then send the presence information through the server. The IETF defined an object format for presence information called the Presence Information Data Format (PIDF), which for the purposes of conveying location information was extended to the PIDF Location Object (PIDF-LO) -- these XML objects were designed to accommodate an encrypted wrapper. Encrypting this data would have the added benefit of preventing stored cleartext presence information from being seized by an attacker who manages to compromise a presence server. This proposal, however, quickly runs into usability problems. Discovering the public keys of watchers is the first difficulty, one that few Internet protocols have addressed successfully. This solution would then require the presentity to publish one encrypted copy of its presence information per authorized watcher to the presence service, regardless of whether or not a watcher is actively seeking presence information -- for a presentity with many watchers, this may place an unacceptable burden on the presence server, especially given the dynamism of presence information. Finally, it prevents the server from composing presence information reported by multiple devices under the same user's control. On the whole, these difficulties render object encryption of presence information a doubtful prospect.

最初に、調停とプレゼンスのトレードオフに価値があるかどうかを尋ねる必要があります。サーバーは、プレゼンス情報のすべての公開の中央にある必要がありますか?プレゼンス情報をエンドツーエンドで暗号化すると、これらの問題の多くを解決できるように思えるかもしれません。プレゼンティティは、ウォッチャーの公開キーを使用してプレゼンス情報を暗号化してから、サーバーを介してのみプレゼンス情報を送信できます。 IETFは、プレゼンス情報データフォーマット(PIDF)と呼ばれるプレゼンス情報のオブジェクトフォーマットを定義しました。これは、位置情報を伝えるために、PIDFロケーションオブジェクト(PIDF-LO)に拡張されました。これらのXMLオブジェクトは、暗号化に対応するように設計されていますラッパー。このデータを暗号化すると、プレゼンスサーバーのセキュリティを侵害した攻撃者が、保存されているクリアテキストのプレゼンス情報を押収されるのを防ぐという追加の利点があります。ただし、この提案はユーザビリティの問題にすぐにぶつかります。ウォッチャーの公開鍵を発見することが最初の困難であり、いくつかのインターネットプロトコルがうまく対処していない問題の1つです。このソリューションでは、ウォッチャーが積極的にプレゼンス情報を探しているかどうかに関係なく、許可されたウォッチャーごとにプレゼンス情報の暗号化されたコピーを1つプレゼンスサービスに公開する必要があります。多くのウォッチャーがいるプレゼンティティの場合、これは許容できない場合があります特にプレゼンス情報のダイナミズムを考えると、プレゼンスサーバーの負担。最後に、サーバーが同じユーザーの制御下にある複数のデバイスから報告されたプレゼンス情報を作成することを防ぎます。全体として、これらの困難により、プレゼンス情報のオブジェクトの暗号化は疑わしい見通しとなっています。

Some protocols that support presence information, such as SIP, can operate intermediaries in a redirecting mode rather than a publishing or proxying mode. Instead of sending presence information through the server, in other words, these protocols can merely redirect watchers to the presentity, and then presence information could pass directly and securely from the presentity to the watcher. It is worth noting that this would disclose the IP address of the presentity to the watcher, which has its own set of risks. In that case, the presentity can decide exactly what information it would like to share with the watcher in question, it can authenticate the watcher itself with whatever strength of credential it chooses, and with end-to-end encryption it can reduce the likelihood of any eavesdropping. In a redirection architecture, a presence server could still provide the necessary "offline" indication without requiring the presence server to observe and forward all information itself. This mechanism is more promising than encryption but also suffers from significant difficulties. It too does not provide for composition of presence information from multiple devices -- it in fact forces the watcher to perform this composition itself. The largest single impediment to this approach is, however, the difficulty of creating end-to-end connections between the presentity's device(s) and a watcher, as some or all of these endpoints may be behind NATs or firewalls that prevent peer-to-peer connections. While there are potential solutions for this problem, like Session Traversal Utilities for NAT (STUN) and Traversal Using Relays around NAT (TURN), they add complexity to the overall system.

SIPなどのプレゼンス情報をサポートする一部のプロトコルは、パブリッシングモードまたはプロキシモードではなく、リダイレクトモードで仲介者を操作できます。つまり、これらのプロトコルは、サーバーを介してプレゼンス情報を送信する代わりに、ウォッチャーをプレゼンティティにリダイレクトするだけで、プレゼンス情報をプレゼンティティからウォッチャーに直接かつ安全に渡すことができます。これにより、プレゼンティティのIPアドレスがウォッチャーに開示されることに注意してください。ウォッチャーには独自のリスクがあります。その場合、プレゼンティティは問題のウォッチャーと共有する情報を正確に決定でき、選択した資格情報の強度でウォッチャー自体を認証できます。エンドツーエンドの暗号化により、可能性を減らすことができます。盗聴。リダイレクトアーキテクチャでは、プレゼンスサーバーがすべての情報を監視して転送する必要なく、プレゼンスサーバーが必要な「オフライン」表示を提供できます。このメカニズムは暗号化よりも有望ですが、重大な問題も抱えています。また、複数のデバイスからのプレゼンス情報の構成は提供されません。実際、ウォッチャーはこの構成自体を実行する必要があります。ただし、このアプローチの最大の障害は、プレゼンティティのデバイスとウォッチャーの間にエンドツーエンド接続を作成することが難しいことです。これらのエンドポイントの一部またはすべてが、ピアツーピアを妨げるNATまたはファイアウォールの背後にある可能性があるためです。 -ピア接続。この問題には、NATのセッショントラバーサルユーティリティ(STUN)やNATを介したリレーを使用したトラバーサル(TURN)などの潜在的な解決策がありますが、システム全体が複雑になります。

Consequently, mediation is a difficult feature of the presence architecture to remove. It is hard to minimize the data shared with intermediaries, especially due to the requirement for composition. Control over sharing with intermediaries must therefore come from some other explicit component of the architecture. As such, the presence work in the IETF focused on improving user participation in the activities of the presence server. This work began in the GEOPRIV working group, with controls on location privacy, as location of users is perceived as having especially sensitive properties. With the aim of meeting the privacy requirements defined in [RFC2779], a set of usage indications, such as whether retransmission is allowed or when the retention period expires, have been added to the PIDF-LO such that they always travel with the location information itself. These privacy preferences apply not only to the intermediaries that store and forward presence information but also to the watchers who consume it.

したがって、メディエーションは、プレゼンスアーキテクチャの削除が難しい機能です。特に構成の要件のため、仲介者と共有するデータを最小限に抑えることは困難です。したがって、仲介者との共有の制御は、アーキテクチャーの他の明示的なコンポーネントから行う必要があります。そのため、IETFでのプレゼンス作業は、プレゼンスサーバーのアクティビティへのユーザーの参加を改善することに重点を置いていました。この作業は、位置情報のプライバシーを制御するGEOPRIVワーキンググループで始まりました。ユーザーの位置情報は、特に機密性の高い特性を持つものとして認識されています。 [RFC2779]で定義されたプライバシー要件を満たすことを目的として、再送信が許可されるか、保持期間が満了するかなどの一連の使用状況表示が常に位置情報と一緒に移動するようにPIDF-LOに追加されました自体。これらのプライバシー設定は、プレゼンス情報を保存および転送する仲介者だけでなく、それを使用するウォッチャーにも適用されます。

This approach very much follows the spirit of Creative Commons [CC], namely the usage of a limited number of conditions (such as 'Share Alike' [CC-SA]). Unlike Creative Commons, the GEOPRIV working group did not, however, initiate work to produce legal language or design graphical icons, since this would fall outside the scope of the IETF. In particular, the GEOPRIV rules state a preference on the retention and retransmission of location information; while GEOPRIV cannot force any entity receiving a PIDF-LO object to abide by those preferences, if users lack the ability to express them at all, we can guarantee their preferences will not be honored. The GEOPRIV rules can provide a means to establish accountability.

このアプローチは、クリエイティブコモンズ[CC]の精神、つまり限られた数の条件の使用( 'Share Alike' [CC-SA]など)に非常によく従います。ただし、クリエイティブコモンズとは異なり、GEOPRIVワーキンググループは、IETFの範囲外であるため、合法的な言語を作成したり、グラフィックアイコンをデザインしたりする作業を開始しませんでした。特に、GEOPRIVルールは、位置情報の保持と再送信の優先順位を示しています。 GEOPRIVはPIDF-LOオブジェクトを受け取るエンティティにこれらの設定を強制することはできませんが、ユーザーがそれらをまったく表現できない場合は、設定が守られないことを保証できます。 GEOPRIVルールは、アカウンタビリティを確立する手段を提供できます。

The retention and retransmission elements were envisioned as the most essential examples of preference expression in sharing presence. The PIDF object was designed for extensibility, and the rulesets created for the PIDF-LO can also be extended to provide new expressions of user preference. Not all user preference information should be bound into a particular PIDF object, however; many forms of access control policy assumed by the presence architecture need to be provisioned in the presence server by some interface with the user. This requirement eventually triggered the standardization of a general access control policy language called the common policy framework (defined in [RFC4745]). This language allows one to express ways to control the distribution of information as simple conditions, actions, and transformation rules expressed in an XML format. Common Policy itself is an abstract format that needs to be instantiated: two examples can be found with the presence authorization rules [RFC5025] and the Geolocation Policy [RFC6772]. The former provides additional expressiveness for presence-based systems, while the latter defines syntax and semantics for location-based conditions and transformations.

保持と再送信の要素は、プレゼンスを共有する際の選好表現の最も重要な例として想定されていました。 PIDFオブジェクトは拡張性を考慮して設計されており、PIDF-LO用に作成されたルールセットを拡張して、ユーザー設定の新しい表現を提供することもできます。ただし、すべてのユーザー設定情報を特定のPIDFオブジェクトにバインドする必要はありません。プレゼンスアーキテクチャで想定されている多くの形式のアクセス制御ポリシーは、ユーザーとの何らかのインターフェースによってプレゼンスサーバーでプロビジョニングする必要があります。この要件は最終的に、共通ポリシーフレームワーク([RFC4745]で定義)と呼ばれる一般的なアクセス制御ポリシー言語の標準化を引き起こしました。この言語を使用すると、情報の配布を制御する方法を、XML形式で表現された単純な条件、アクション、および変換ルールとして表現できます。共通ポリシー自体は、インスタンス化が必要な抽象的な形式です。プレゼンス認証ルール[RFC5025]と位置情報ポリシー[RFC6772]を使用した2つの例があります。前者はプレゼンスベースのシステムに追加の表現力を提供し、後者はロケーションベースの条件と変換の構文とセマンティクスを定義します。

Ultimately, the privacy work on presence represents a compromise between privacy principles and the needs of the architecture and marketplace. While it was not feasible to remove intermediaries from the architecture entirely or prevent their access to presence information, the IETF did provide a way for users to express their preferences and provision their controls at the presence service. We have not had great successes in the implementation space with privacy mechanisms thus far, but by documenting and acknowledging the limitations of these mechanisms, the designers were able to provide implementers, and end users, with an informed perspective on the privacy properties of the IETF's presence protocols.
