Canonical URL: ; File formats: Plain Text PDF; Status: PROPOSED STANDARD; Obsoleted by: RFC ; Updated by. Diameter is specified primarily as a base protocol by the IETF in RFC and then DIAMETER base protocol must be used in conjunction with DIAMETER. Diameter is an authentication, authorization, and accounting protocol for computer networks. It evolved from the earlier RADIUS protocol. It belongs to the application layer protocols in the internet protocol suite. Diameter Applications extend the base protocol by adding new commands The Diameter base protocol is defined by RFC (Obsoletes: RFC ).

The End-to-End Identifier is an unsigned bit integer field in network byte order that is used to detect duplicate messages along with the combination of the Origin-Host AVP. The length of the padding is not reflected in the AVP Length field.
An administrative domain MAY act as a local realm for certain users, while being a home realm for others. Hi Dinesh, Many thanks for the info.
Dinesh Kumar September 6, at 4: Initially, it is expected that Diameter will be deployed within new network devices, as well as within gateways enabling communication between legacy RADIUS prottocol and Diameter agents. End-to-end security policies include: For dixmeter detail you can refer 3GPP spec A truly generic AAA bxse used by many applications might provide functionality not provided by Diameter.
Since relays make decisions based on information in routing AVPs and realm forwarding tables they do not keep state on NAS resource usage or sessions in progress. A Realm Routing Table Entry contains the following fields: Local Realm A local realm is the administrative domain providing services to a user.
Table of Contents 1. When set the AVP Code belongs to the specific vendor code address space. User The entity requesting or using some resource, in support of which a Diameter client has generated a request. At this time the focus of Diameter is network access and accounting applications.
Agents do not need to support all modes of operation in order to conform with the protocol specification, but MUST follow the protocol compliance guidelines in Section 2. Any node can initiate a request. It can be diamerer only in cases where no answer has been received from the server for a request and bsae request is sent again.
The communicating party may accept the request, or reject it by returning an answer message with the Result-Code AVP. Relay Agent or Relay Relays forward requests and responses based on routing-related AVPs and realm routing table entries. This document also defines the Diameter failover algorithm and state machine.
RFC – part 1 of 5
It belongs pgotocol the application layer protocols in the internet protocol suite. Diameter is used for many different interfaces defined by the 3GPP standards, with each interface typically defining new commands and attributes. Match if the ICMP type is baxe the list types. Each leg of the bundle would be a session while the entire bundle would be a multi-session. A Command Code is used to determine the action that is to be taken for a particular message.
This security protects the entire Diameter communications path from the originating Diameter node to the terminating Diameter node.
In order to provide universal support for transmission-level security, rtc enable both intra- and inter-domain AAA deployments, IPsec support is mandatory in Diameter, and TLS support is optional. For a match to occur, the same IP version must be present in the packet that was used in describing the IP address. This is known as the Realm Routing Table, as is defined further in Section 2.
It is a very good information. Static or Dynamic Specifies whether a peer entry was statically configured, or dynamically discovered. NAI realm names are required to be unique, and are piggybacked on the administration of the DNS namespace. All proxies MUST maintain transaction state. It MAY do this in one of the following ways: Server Identifier One or more servers the message is to be routed to. Chinmoy December 14, at 9: Relaying and Proxying Answers RFC clearly states about loop avoidance or recovery.
This is typically accomplished by tracking the state of NAS devices. Here only loop detection mechanism is explained, Nothing is given for avoidance or recovery from loop.
If an optional rule has no ; qualifier, then 0 or 1 such AVP may be ; present.
The list may be specified as any combination of ranges or individual types separated by commas. A connection is a transport level connection between two peers, used to send and receive Diameter diamter. Over time, with the growth of the Internet and the introduction of new access technologies, including wireless, DSL, Mobile IP and Ethernet, routers and network access servers NAS have increased in complexity and density, putting new demands on AAA protocols.
If cleared, the message MUST be locally processed.
This scenario is advantageous since it does not require that the consortium provide routing updates to its members when changes are made to a member’s infrastructure. I dint find much information on the usage of App-Id. If an AVP with the ” M ” bit set is received by a Diaameter client, server, proxy, or translation agent and either the AVP or its value is unrecognized, the message must be rejected.
