2. Abstract

This document defines the JSON schema for testing Symmetric Block Cipher implementations with the ACVP specification.

3. Introduction

The Automated Crypto Validation Protocol (ACVP) defines a mechanism to automatically verify the cryptographic implementation of a software or hardware crypto module. The ACVP specification defines how a crypto module communicates with an ACVP server, including crypto capabilities negotiation, session management, authentication, vector processing and more. The ACVP specification does not define algorithm specific JSON constructs for performing the crypto validation. A series of ACVP sub-specifications define the constructs for testing individual crypto algorithms. Each sub-specification addresses a specific class of crypto algorithms. This sub-specification defines the JSON constructs for testing Symmetric Block Cipher implementations using ACVP.

The ACVP server performs a set of tests on the block ciphers in order to assess the correctness and robustness of the implementation. A typical ACVP validation session would require multiple tests to be performed for every supported cryptographic algorithm, such as AES-ECB, AES-CBC, AES-CTR, AES-GCM, TDES-CBC, TDES-CTR, etc.

5. Supported Block Cipher Algorithms

The following block cipher algorithm and test revision pairs MAY be advertised by the ACVP compliant cryptographic module (algorithm / revision):

Multiple testing revisions of the same algorithm allow a validation server to improve testing over time without breaking functionality of existing clients. In the case of symmetric block cipher algorithms, multiple revisions of ACVP-AES-XTS exist and MAY individually be provided by a server. The revision numbers of "1.0" and "2.0" indicate a progression among the tests. In this case, the "2.0" tests are fully capable of running the "1.0" implementation of ACVP-AES-XTS. More discussion can be found within Section 7.3.

5.1. Supported Conformances

The following conformances MAY be advertised by the ACVP compliant cryptographic module:

  • ACVP-AES-CCM conformance "ECMA" which expands upon AES-CCM and adheres to [ECMA]. This conformance changes the supported sizes to accomodate the specific sizes required by the use-case of the algorithm.

  • ACVP-AES-CTR conformance "RFC3686". This conformance ensures the IV is generated with the LSB[32] of the IV representing the integer "1". This conformance also requires the additional registration property of "ivGenMode" which states if the IUT does external or internal IV generation.

6. Test Types and Test Coverage

This section describes the design of the tests used to validate implementations of block cipher algorithms.

6.1. Test Types

There are three types of tests for block ciphers: functional tests, Monte Carlo tests and counter tests. Each has a specific value to be used in the testType field. The testType field definitions are:

  • "AFT" - Algorithm Functional Test. These tests can be processed by the client using a normal 'encrypt' or 'decrypt' operation. AFTs cause the implementation under test to exercise normal operations on a single block, multiple blocks, or (where applicable) partial blocks. In some cases random data is used, in others, static, predetermined tests are provided. The functional tests of the block cipher are designed to verify that the logical components of the cipher (GFSbox, KeySbox, block chaining etc.) are operating correctly.

  • "MCT" - Monte Carlo Test. These tests exercise the implementation under test under strenuous circumstances. The implementation under test must process the test vectors according to the correct algorithm and mode in this document. MCTs can help detect potential memory leaks over time, and problems in allocation of resources, addressing variables, error handling and generally improper behavior in response to random inputs. Not every algorithm and mode combination has an MCT. See Section 6.1.1 for implementation details.

  • "CTR" - Counter Mode Test. Counter tests are specifically for counter modes (AES-CTR and TDES-CTR) and require an implementation under test to exercise their counter mechanism. The server will send a long message to the client for encryption or decryption and back-compute the IVs used by the implementation under test. These IVs are then verified for uniqueness and an increasing (or decreasing) nature. The client processes these tests as normal AFTs. The different mode is highlighted here to signify the difference on the server side for processing.

6.1.1. Monte Carlo tests for block ciphers

The MCTs start with an initial condition (plaintext/ciphertext, key, and optional, or maybe multiple IVs) and perform a series of chained computations. For modes that use an IV, the IV is used in the beginning of each pseudorandom process. The IV is implicitly advanced according to the block cipher mode in use. There are separate rounds of MCT for encryption and decryption. Because some block cipher modes rely on an IV and perform calculations differently from other modes, there are specific definitions of MCT for many of the block cipher modes.

6.2. Test Coverage

The tests described in this document have the intention of ensuring an implementation is conformant to [FIPS-197] and [SP800-38A].

6.2.1. AES Requirements Covered

In [SP800-38A], both Section 5 and Section 6 which describe general modes of operation for block ciphers are tested. In [FIPS-197], Section 4 outlines the AES engine and necessary functions to perform simple encrypt an decrypt operations. All AES tests perform such operations and thus rely heavily on this section. Section 5 specifically outlines the algorithm for AES and thus all AES tests rely heavily on this section as well. All of [SP800-38A-Add] requirements are covered. In [AES-XTS], the IEEE outlines the encrypt and decrypt operations for AES-XTS.

6.2.2. AES Requirements Not Covered

Some requirements in the outlined specifications are not easily tested. Often they are not ideal for black-box testing such as the ACVP. In [SP800-38A], Appendix A outlines padding for when the data being encrypted does not evenly fill the blocks. In these tests, all data, unless otherwise specified, is assumed to be a multiple of the block length. All exceptions to those cases are when stream ciphers specifically are being tested. In Section 5.3, IV generation which is required for all modes of AES and TDES outside of ECB, is not tested. Appendix D outlines how errors are to be handled. As some symmetric ciphers aren't authenticated, ACVP does not include tests that change random bits in payload, IV, key or results, as these results can be successfully encrypted/decrypted, but errors aren't necessarily detectable.

In [FIPS-197], Section 5.3 defines the inverse cipher for AES. This is not tested in the CBC, CFB (all), OFB or CTR modes.

In [SP800-38E], the AES-XTS algorithm is restricted to 2\^20 AES blocks (128-bits each) per key. Due to the size of the data, ACVP does not test the proper usage of a key over such large amounts of data.

In the [RFC3686] testing conformance of AES-CTR, tests will be generated ensuring the LSB[32] of the IV represents the integer value of "1". These tests will allow for either internal or external IV generation from the perspective of the IUT.

6.2.5. TDES Requirements Covered

In [SP800-67r2], Section 3 outlines the use for TDES with keying option 1 (three distinct keys) and decryption only for keying option 2 (K1 == K3 != K2). Depending on the cipher mode, both the forward and inverse cipher are tested. The known answer tests address these requirements.

6.2.6. TDES Requirements Not Covered

In [SP800-67r2], Section 3.3 outlines requirements for keys for proper usage of TDES. These requirements are not tested by ACVP. All keys used in the tests are randomly or staticly generated by the server. There are no checks for key equality or potentially weak keys. Section 3.3.2 outlines specific keys which are to be avoided. ACVP does not expect a client to be able to detect these keys.

6.2.7. AEAD Requirements Covered

In [SP800-38D], Section 7 outlines the encrypt and decrypt operations for AES-GCM. This and all prerequisites to these operations (such as GHASH) are tested as AES-GCM encrypt and decrypt operations.

In [SP800-38C], Section 6 outlines the encrypt and decrypt operations for AES-CCM. This and all prerequisites to these operations (such as CBC-MAC) are tested as AES-CCM encrypt and decrypt operations. In [AES-GCM-SIV], the draft outlines the encrypt and decrypt operations for AES-GCM-SIV.

6.2.8. AEAD Requirements Not Covered

In [SP800-38D], Section 8 outlines uniqueness requirements on IVs and keys for AES-GCM. This is considered out of bounds for the algorithm testing done by the ACVP and will not be tested.

6.2.9. KeyWrap Requirements Covered

In [SP800-38F] Section 5.2 defines the authenticated encryption and authenticated decryption operations for all three key-wrap algorithms. As well, the padding for key-wrap with padding is defined. Algorithm Functional Tests provide assurance of these requirements for encrypt operations. For decrypt operations, there is a possibility to reject the ciphertext due to improper wrapping. This is also assured by the Algorithm Functional Tests.

Sections 6 and 7 outline the specific ciphers in both encrypt and decrypt directions. All facsets of these processes are tested with random data via the Algorithm Functional Tests.

6.2.10. KeyWrap Requirements Not Covered

In [SP800-38F] Section 5.3 defines the length requirements allowed by an optimal implementation. The upper bounds are unreasonably large to test in a web-based model and thus an artificial maximum is selected for the payloadLen property (corresponding to both plaintext and ciphertext). The Algorithm Functional Tests SHOULD utilize both the minimum and maximum values provided in the client's registration optimally with other values.

7. Capabilities Registration

ACVP requires crypto modules to register their capabilities. This allows the crypto module to advertise support for specific algorithms, notifying the ACVP server which algorithms need test vectors generated for the validation process. This section describes the constructs for advertising support of Block Cipher algorithms to the ACVP server.

The algorithm capabilities MUST be advertised as JSON objects within the 'algorithms' value of the ACVP registration message. The 'algorithms' value is an array, where each array element is an individual JSON object defined in this section. The 'algorithms' value is part of the 'capability_exchange' element of the ACVP JSON registration message. See the ACVP specification [ACVP] for more details on the registration message.

7.1. Prerequisites

Each algorithm implementation MAY rely on other cryptographic primitives. For example, RSA Signature algorithms depend on an underlying hash function. Each of these underlying algorithm primitives must be validated, either separately or as part of the same submission. ACVP provides a mechanism for specifying the required prerequisites:

Prerequisites, if applicable, MUST be submitted in the registration as the prereqVals JSON property array inside each element of the algorithms array. Each element in the prereqVals array MUST contain the following properties

Table 1: Prerequisite Properties
JSON Property Description JSON Type
algorithm a prerequisite algorithm string
valValue algorithm validation number string

A "valValue" of "same" SHALL be used to indicate that the prerequisite is being met by a different algorithm in the capability exchange in the same registration.

An example description of prerequisites within a single algorithm capability exchange looks like this

"prereqVals":
[
  {
    "algorithm": "Alg1",
    "valValue": "Val-1234"
  },
  {
    "algorithm": "Alg2",
    "valValue": "same"
  }
]

7.2. Required Prerequisite Algorithms for Block Cipher Validations

Some block cipher algorithm implementations rely on other cryptographic primitives. For example, AES-CCM uses an underlying AES-ECB algorithm. Each of these underlying algorithm primitives MUST be validated, either separately or as part of the same submission. ACVP provides a mechanism for specifying the required prerequisites:

Table 2: Required Prerequisite Algorithms JSON Values
JSON Value Description JSON type Example Values
algorithm a prerequisite algorithm string AES, DRBG, TDES
valValue algorithm validation number string actual number or "same" to refer to the same submission
prereqAlgVal prerequisite algorithm validation object exactly one algorithm property and one valValue property

7.3. Block Cipher Algorithm Capabilities JSON Values

Table 3: Block Cipher Algorithm Capabilities JSON Values

8. Test Vectors

The ACVP server provides test vectors to the ACVP client, which are then processed and returned to the ACVP server for validation. A typical ACVP validation test session would require multiple test vector sets to be downloaded and processed by the ACVP client. Each test vector set represents an individual algorithm defined during the capability exchange. This section describes the JSON schema for a test vector set used with Symmetric Block Cipher algorithms.

The test vector set JSON schema is a multi-level hierarchy that contains meta data for the entire vector set as well as individual test vectors to be processed by the ACVP client. The following table describes the JSON elements at the top level of the hierarchy.

Table 11: Top Level Test Vector JSON Elements
JSON Values Description JSON Type
acvVersion Protocol version identifier string
vsId Unique numeric vector set identifier integer
algorithm Algorithm defined in the capability exchange string
mode Mode defined in the capability exchange string
revision Protocol test revision selected string
testGroups Array of test groups containing test data, see Section 8.1 array

An example of this would look like this

{
  "acvVersion": "version",
  "vsId": 1,
  "algorithm": "Alg1",
  "mode": "Mode1",
  "revision": "Revision1.0",
  "testGroups": [ ... ]
}

8.1. Test Groups

Test vector sets MUST contain one or more test groups, each sharing similar properties. For instance, all test vectors that use the same key size would be grouped together. The testGroups element at the top level of the test vector JSON object SHALL be the array of test groups. The Test Group JSON object MUST contain meta-data that applies to all test cases within the group. The following table describes the JSON elements that MAY appear from the server in the Test Group JSON object:

Table 12: Test Group JSON Object
JSON Value Description JSON type
tgId Numeric identifier for the test group, unique across the entire vector set. integer
direction The IUT processing direction: encrypt or decrypt string
ivGen IV generation method string
ivGenMode IV generation method string
saltGen Salt generation method string
keyLen Length of key in bits to use integer
keyingOption The TDES keying option to use integer
ivLen Length of IV in bits to use integer
payloadLen Length of plaintext or ciphertext in bits to use integer
aadLen Length of AAD in bits to use integer
tagLen Length of AEAD tag in bits to use integer
alphabet Characters representing the alphabet in use for the group. ACVP-AES-FF1 and ACVP-AES-FF3-1 only. string
radix The number base in use for the group (should match the number of characters from the alphabet. ACVP-AES-FF1 and ACVP-AES-FF3-1 only. integer
testType The test category type (AFT, MCT or counter). See Section 6 for more information about what these tests do, and how to implement them. string
tests Array of individual test case JSON objects, which are defined in Section 8.2 array of testCase objects

Some properties MUST appear in the prompt file from the server for every testGroup object. They are as follows:

The other properties MAY appear depending on the algorithm selected for the test vector set. The following grid defines the REQUIRED properties for each standard block cipher, as well as the valid values a server MAY use:

ACVP-AES-CTR "1.0" for the test cases of some test groups, but not others within domain (see Table 9)
ACVP-AES-XTS "2.0" for all test cases within domain (see Table 8)

9. Test Vector Responses

After the ACVP client downloads and processes a vector set, it SHALL send the response vectors back to the ACVP server within the alloted timeframe. The following table describes the JSON object that represents a vector set response.

Table 19: Vector Set Response JSON Object
JSON Value Description JSON type
acvVersion Protocol version identifier string
vsId Unique numeric identifier for the vector set integer
testGroups Array of JSON objects that represent each test vector group. See Table 20 array of testGroup objects

The testGroup Response section is used to organize the ACVP client response in a similar manner to how it receives vectors. Several algorithms SHALL require the client to send back group level properties in its response. This structure helps accommodate that.

Table 20: Vector Set Group Response JSON Object
JSON Value Description JSON type
tgId The test group identifier integer
tests The tests associated to the group specified in tgId array of testCase objects

Each test case is a JSON object that represents a single test object to be processed by the ACVP client. The following table describes the JSON elements for each test case object.

Table 21: Test Case Results JSON Object
JSON Value Description JSON type
tcId Numeric identifier for the test case, unique across the entire vector set. integer
pt The IUT's pt response to a decrypt test string (hex)
ct The IUT's ct response to an encrypt test string (hex)
testPassed Some test cases included with decrypt operations in AES-GCM, AES-CCM, AES-XPN, AES-KW, AES-KWP, and TDES-KW will have expected failures. boolean
resultsArray Array of JSON objects that represent each iteration of a Monte Carlo Test. Each iteration will contain the key(s), pt, ct and iv array of objects containing pt, ct and iv (except for ECB mode)

10. Security Considerations

There are no additional security considerations outside of those outlined in the ACVP document.
