1. Introduction
This document defines a number of transforms for the Internet Key
Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) [RFC7296]. These transforms are based on
Russian cryptographic standard algorithms (often called "GOST"
algorithms) for hash function, digital signature and key exchange
method. Along with transforms defined in [I-D.smyslov-esp-gost], the
transforms defined in this specification allow using GOST
cryptographic algorithms in IPsec protocols.
2. Terminology and Notation
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 BCP
14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
capitals, as shown here.
3. Overview
Russian cryptographic standard (GOST) algorithms are a set of
cryptographic algorithms of different types - ciphers, hash
functions, digital signatures etc. In particular, Russian
cryptographic standard [GOST3412-2015] defines block ciphers
"Kuznyechik" (also defined in [RFC7801]) and "Magma" (also defined in
[RFC8891]). Cryptographic standard [GOST3410-2012] defines elliptic
curve digital signature algorithm (also defined in [RFC7091]), while
Smyslov Expires February 26, 2022 [Page 2]
Internet-Draft GOST algorithms in IKEv2 August 2021
[GOST3411-2012] defines two cryptographic hash functions "Stribog",
with different output length (also defined in [RFC6986]). The
parameters for the elliptic curves used in GOST signature and key
exchange algorithms are defined in [RFC7836].
4. IKE SA Protection
Specification [I-D.smyslov-esp-gost] defines two transforms of type 1
(Encryption Algorithm Transform IDs) based on GOST block ciphers that
may be used for IKE SA protection: ENCR_KUZNYECHIK_MGM_KTREE (32)
based on "Kuznyechik" block cipher and ENCR_MAGMA_MGM_KTREE (33)
based on "Magma" block cipher. Since they are AEAD transforms and
provide both encryption and authentication, there is no need for new
transform type 3 (Integrity Algorithm Transform IDs), because it must
not be used with these transforms (or must have a value NONE).
5. Pseudo Random Function
This specification defines a new transform of type 2 (Pseudorandom
Function Transform IDs) - PRF_HMAC_STRIBOG_512 (9). This transform
uses PRF HMAC_GOSTR3411_2012_512 defined in Section 4.1.2 of
[RFC7836]. The PRF uses GOST R 34.11-2012 ("Stribog") hash-function
with 512-bit output defined in [RFC6986][GOST3411-2012] with HMAC
[RFC2104] construction. The PRF has a 512-bit block size and a
512-bit output length.
6. Shared Key Calculation
This specification defines two new transforms of type 4 (Diffie-
Hellman Group Transform IDs): GOST3410_2012_256 (33) and
GOST3410_2012_512 (34). These transforms uses Elliptic Curve Diffie-
Hellman (ECDH) key exchange algorithm over Twisted Edwards curves.
The parameters for these curves are defined in Section A.2 of
[RFC7836]. In particular, transform GOST3410_2012_256 uses id-tc26-
gost-3410-2012-256-paramSetA parameter set and GOST3410_2012_512 uses
id-tc26-gost-3410-2012-512-paramSetC parameter set (both defined in
[RFC7836]).
Shared secret is computed as follows. The initiator randomly selects
its private key d_i from {1,..,q - 1}, where q is the group order and
is a parameter of the selected curve. Then a public key Q_i is
computed as a point on the curve: Q_i = d_i * G, where G is the
generator for the selected curve, and then is sent to the responder.
The responder makes the same calculations to get d_r and Q_r and
sends Q_r to the initiator. After peers exchange Q_i and Q_R both
sides can compute a point on the curve S = ((m / q) * d_i) * Q_r =
((m / q) * d_r) * Q_i, where m is the subgroup order and is a
parameter of the selected curve. The shared secret K is an x
Smyslov Expires February 26, 2022 [Page 3]
Internet-Draft GOST algorithms in IKEv2 August 2021
coordinate of S in a little-endian representation. The size of K is
determined by the size of used curve and is either 256 or 512 bit.
When GOST public key is transmitted in the KE payload, it MUST be
represented as x coordinate immediately followed by y coordinate,
each in a little-endian representation. The size of each coordinate
is determined by the size of the used curve and is either 256 or 512
bits, so that the size of the Key Exchange Data field in the KE
payload is either 64 or 128 octets.
6.1. Recipient Tests
Upon receiving peer's public key implementations MUST check that the
key is actually a point on the curve, otherwise the exchange fails.
Implementations MUST check that the calculated public value S is not
an identity element of the curve, in which case the exchange fails.
7. Authentication
GOST digital signatures algorithm GOST R 34.10-2012 is defined in
[RFC7091][GOST3410-2012]. There are two variants of GOST signature
algorithm - one over 256-bit elliptic curve and the other over
512-bit key elliptic curve.
When GOST digital signature is used in IKEv2 for authentication
purposes, an Authentication Method "Digital Signature" (14) MUST be
specified in the AUTH payload. The AlgorithmIdentifier ASN.1 objects
for GOST digital signature algorithm are defined in Section 7.2.
The signature value, as defined in [RFC7091][GOST3410-2012], consists
of two integers r and s. The size of each integer is either 256 bit
or 512 bit depending on the used elliptic curve. The content of the
Signature Value field in the AUTH payload MUST consist of s
immediately followed by r, each in a big-endian representation, so
that the size of the field is either 64 or 128 octets.
7.1. Hash Functions
GOST digital signatures algorithm uses GOST hash functions GOST R
34.11-2012 ("Stribog") defined in [RFC6986][GOST3411-2012]. There
are two "Stribog" hash functions - one with 256-bit output length and
the other with 512-bit output length.
This specification defines two new values for IKEv2 Hash Algorithms
registry: STRIBOG_256 (6) for GOST hash function with 256-bit output
length and STRIBOG_512 (7) for the 512-bit length output. These
values MUST be included in the SIGNATURE_HASH_ALGORITHMS notify if a

corresponding GOST digital signature algorithm is supported by the
sender.

This section lists GOST signature algorithm ASN.1 AlgorithmIdentifier
objects in binary form. This objects are defined in
[I-D.deremin-rfc4491-bis][USING-GOST-IN-CERTS] and are provided here

8. Security Considerations
The security considerations of [RFC7296] apply accordingly.
The security of GOST elliptic curves is discussed in
[GOST-EC-SECURITY]. The security of "Stribog" hash function is
discussed in [STRIBOG-SECURITY]. A second preimage attack on
"Stribog" is described in [STRIBOG-PREIMAGE] if message size exceeds
2^259 blocks. This attack is not relevant to how "Stribog" is used
in IKEv2.
