1 How Updated CCSDS Protocols can Simplify Data Formatting for the Constellation Project Ed Greenberg Greg Kazz

2 Organization of this Presentation 1.What’s New in proposed CCSDS Link Layer Protocols Brief overview of new capabilities 2.Why Constellation should consider utilizing the newly proposed AOS protocol services Simplicities achievable by using the new services 3.How these newly proposed protocols can be implemented within Constellation to unify and simplify the production of all Telemetry and Command services between Mission Systems and Orion, et al. Detail description of how all the data formats can be accommodated by a single implementation approach

3 What’s New in proposed Link Layer Protocols Link Layer Security Methodology –Provides Authenticated Encryption service –Added and removed by the User –Transparent to the supporting link layer services Secondary Header Data Service –Provides a new pathway to support delay intolerant data –Dynamic Service to elastically support the various instantaneous need i.e. range safety and operational voice

4 Link Layer Security Methodology Security Block Description –An integrated data block that is inserted into the AOS frame containing the fields necessary to identify and accommodate the Authentication and/or the Encryption of the frame’s data contents –Can be structured to provide identical security for all Virtual Channels (VC) or individually for each VC –Contains the following Fields: A Security Protocol Identifier ( SPI-identifies the current key and parameter usage) An optional counter field (for use in the AES_GCM security process) The ICV to hold the created Authentication Tag Optional Initialization and Pad fields (not used in AES_GCM process)

5 Secondary Header Data Service An optional data block whose inclusion in the frame is announced by a flag in the AOS primary header The use of the Secondary Header Data Service is applied on an individual VC basis The data block is self delimited (includes a length field) and self identifying (includes a type/identification field) The data block will only appear within the frame when its service is required The size of the data block can elastically adjust to the instantaneous need of the VC

6 AOS Services and Frame Organization Insert Zone Security Header Primary Secondary Header Data Unit MPDU Header- PacketsSPI-CTR-ICV Header Header-Type-Data 6-Bytes(1+X+8 - Bytes)[2+(Y) – Bytes](2+Z - Bytes) 1.Primary Header Master Channel ID, VC ID, VC Counter, Secondary Header Flag 2.Insert Zone ( Security Data Unit ) Managed field that is present in all VC on a Master Channel SPI (Key ID #), Counter LSBs ( 1 Fwd/3 Rtn ), ICV 3.Secondary Header Data Unit ( carries delay intolerant data ) Unique to a VC and is announced by a flag and delimited by length Header, Multiple self-identified data sets ( header, size, data ) 4.MPDU Encapsulation Packets ( all CCSDS packet types allowed ) ASM 4-Bytes

7 Why Constellation should consider utilizing the proposed AOS protocol services The newly proposed AOS service provides capabilities that Constellation requires (i.e. link layer security) These services offer a capability that can unify and simplify the implementation of all AOS frames for both Telemetry and Command Offers a single method for including operation voice in all operational modes with minimum overhead –also provides an automated way for correlating dissimilar voice when delivered via different physical paths A single AOS Frame Construction technique is utilized

8 Operational, Dissimilar and Emergency AOS Frame Formats all use the same Process Security Header for CMD has 1 byte SPI, 1 byte Counter Field and 8 byte ICV Security Header for TLM is 1 byte SPI, 4 byte Counter Field and 4+ byte ICV Secondary Header Service- supports Range Safety and Ops Voice –Header is 2 bytes: version, Header Type/Contents ID, length of header +data ( 10 bits ) –Range Safety: contains pre-specified DEM/Command Pre-defined size and included only when necessary –Voice data is aggregated from a variable # of 10 byte voice blocks 1/2 chip may be required for 10.24 kbps rate 1k frame @ 24 kbps number of voice blocks per frame varies between 4 and 5 (40 or 50 bytes) This data is only included when necessary MPDU is standard CCSDS data field carrying CCSDS Packet types CMD Secondary Header Primary Header Insert Zone Secondary Header-Data MPDU Header MPDU Data Field 6 bytes Security Header 10 bytes Range Safety Commands Voice Encapsulation Packets Variable 2 bytes TLM Primary Header Insert Zone MPDU Data Field 6 bytes Security Header 8 bytes Encapsulation Packets Variable Optional & Variable 2 bytes Secondary Header Secondary Header-Data MPDU Header Range Safety TLM DEM Voice 2 bytes Optional & Variable 2 bytes

9 AOS Frame Construction AOS Framing Process ( time driven ) –Frames are constructed on a periodic basis If no data is available no frame is created, an idle frame will be supplied by the Link Transmission Process –The initial frame construction reserves space where the Primary Header will be placed later –A few ms before the rate defined Frame Release instant a request is issued to the Secondary Header Data Unit (SHDU) Constructor requesting a Secondary Header Data Unit –A few ms later the SHDU, if one is available, is received and placed into the Frame –Then a request is issued to the MPU Constructor ( containing the size of the MPDU required ) –A Primary Header is constructed and set in place ( If a SHDU was received the SH Flag Bit is set ) –The MPDU Constructor returns an MPDU of the requested size that is then added to the frame Secondary Header Data Unit Constructor ( Range Safety-Voice ) –When a request is received it builds the SHDU with the data it had received and passes it to the Framing Process MPDU Constructor –Buffers packets received via the designated port –Once receiving the allowable MPDU length in the data request the MPDU is built and transferred to the Framing Process Framing Time Line Release Frame Request MPDU Request SHDU Request MPDU Release Frame Request SHDU

10 Example Approach for Security The security could be provided by a single crypto unit for every frame transmitted on a link. –The Security Block would be placed in the AOS Frame Insert Zone AES-GCM shall be used for command –An eight byte counter would be used but only a portion need be sent For Command only a single byte need be transmitted within the Block For Telemetry only four bytes need be transmitted within the Block The SDI will increment when the counter overflows providing automated key changes The minimum of eight bytes of ICV is required for authentication –Its usage need for telemetry is questionable Counter for Command could be up to 8 bytes in length

11 Secondary Header Data Unit Construction Launch/Range Safety Data –A defined DEM is created by the launch vehicle and forwarded for inclusion in the Secondary Header Data Unit. Voice –Receives and buffers 10 byte Voice Chips from the voice codec –Builds a Voice Group containing a Label and the received Voice Chips Label contains a Master Chip Counter and a count of the number of chips included in this SHDU Master Chip Counter is a sequential count chips transmitted prior to this frame (modulo 4096) No Voice Group is created if less than 2 chips are available Secondary Header Data Unit –The SHDU Header contains the SH version ID, the Type ID and Length of the SHDU Example Type ID 1) Voice only with label 2)- Voice with label and fixed Range Safety 3) Selective Engineering DEMs with header –If an SHDU is created it is passed to Frame Constructor Label Voice Chips # of Chips 12 bits 4 bits Variable (20-125 bytes) Label Voice Chips M Counter # of Chips 10 bytes/Chip Optional Secondary Header Version Type ID Length 2 bits 3 bits 11 bits Optional Range Safety DEM Fixed if present Optional Chip Counter Note: SHDU can include fill to eliminate the inclusion of an MPDU SHDU Fill

13 Secondary Header Service This service is dynamic, self identifying & self delimiting Type field identify contents –Up to 8 content definitions can be identified i.e. Voice only, Voice and Range Safety DEM, other –Data field can fill frame eliminating a MPDU when desired For Launch: Range Safety and Operational Voice delivery For Dissimilar service: Voice and/or Engineering data –Data field can be empty allowing the MPDU to fill frame TypeVersionLengthData 2 bits3 bits11 bits Variable up to a maximum of 2046 bytes

14 Voice Backup ?? This is my assumption—Please advise on its correctness 1.The Codec creates a 10 byte chip for 10 ms of voice 2.The Codec is connected to the operation’s voice net 3.The Codec data chip is sent via ??? –Let’s say via IP to the designated Port(s) within an address Port A is Secondary Constructor Port B is ENCAP Constructor (could include header compression or not) Port C is the Dissimilar Link constructor –If a counter is incremented for each chip and sent with the chip then that counter could be included in the secondary and the Dissimilar voice frames allowing the receiving system to synchronize the chips eliminating manual syncing and reducing the offset to near nothing.
