Configuring a Local Profile

SBR Carrier can enforce fine-grained authorization policy by using local profiles. Local profiles are used in combination with the subscriber profile stored in the HSS to provide additional security for authorization. A local profile is configured in the Web GUI by defining ordered lists of attributes and a non-3GPP interworking policy. You can define as many local profiles as you require.

Note: Each server in your network needs to be configured with at least one local profile that includes the policy configuration for non-3GPP IP access.

A mobile operator can use profiles to create a wireless plan for subscribers. For example, you might offer a voice only plan as well as a voice and data plan. A profile could be defined for each plan and customized for the specific requirements of the SWa, STa, SWm, and S6b reference points supported in the plan.

Creating a Local Profile

To create a local profile, you configure attribute lists and a non-3GPP interworking policy for the SWa, STa, SWm, and S6b reference points. Attribute lists specify attribute values that are placed in the response, and are typically used to provide additional parameters needed to complete the authorization. The order in which the attributes are placed in the response is user-defined. The non-3GPP interworking policy is a list of rules governing the authorization.

To create a local profile using the Web GUI:

  1. Select Diameter Configuration > Policy > Local Profiles.

    The Local Profiles List page (Figure 146) appears.

    Figure 146: Local Profiles List Page

    The Local Profiles List page (Figure 146) displays an updated list of local profiles.

Configuring Authorization Attributes

SBR Carrier supports the following authorization attribute lists:

  • Return list
  • Copy list
  • Periodic reauthorization

You can create any combination of the above attribute authorization lists you require. For example, you can configure the profile with both return lists and copy lists. This allows the visited SBR Carrier server to add its own level of authorization by copying some attributes from the server response, as well as setting some attributes in the response.

The value of each attribute has a well-defined data type: numeric, string, IP address, time, or hexadecimal. For example, Callback-Number is of type string and contains a telephone number, while NAS-Port-Type is an item from a list, and can be Sync, Async, and so forth.

Note: SBR Carrier supports signed integers (negative numbers) for attributes received in packets. However, the Web GUI does not support signed integers, and treats both signed and unsigned integers as unsigned integers.

Attributes can be single- or multi-valued. Single-valued attributes appear at most once in the response; multi-valued attributes may appear several times.

If an attribute appears more than once in the response list, each value of the attribute is sent as part of the response packet. For example, to enable both IP and IPX header compression for a subscriber, the Framed-Compression attribute should appear twice in the response list: once with the value VJTCPIPheadercompression and once with the value IPXheadercompression.

The order in which attributes appear in the response is user defined. In addition, an attribute can appear more than once in the response, and the order in which the attributes appear may be significant.

For Diameter, if the request from the client included a request for authorization, a successful response must include the authorization AVPs that are relevant to the service being provided.

Attributes are always returned to the client (non-3GPP network) in the authorization response only when authorization is granted.

To configure authorization attributes for the SWa, STa, SWm, or S6b reference point using the Web GUI:

  1. In the Create Local Profile pane (Figure 147), click Attributes under the respective tab.
  2. Click Add.

    The Add Authorization dialog box for authorization attributes (Figure 148) appears.

    Figure 148: Add Authorization Dialog for Authorization Attributes

    Add
Authorization Dialog for Authorization Attributes

    In the Add Authorization dialog box, you can:

    • Select the Periodic Reauthorization option to add periodic reauthorization attributes. For more information about adding periodic reauthorization attributes, see Adding Periodic Reauthorization Attributes.
    • Select the AVPs to be Sent in the Response option or the AVPs to be Copied from the Response option to add a return or copy list. For more information about adding return or copy list, see Adding a Return or Copy List.

Adding Periodic Reauthorization Attributes

The periodic reauthorization feature provides a set of attributes that instruct the non-3GPP network to initiate reauthorization requests automatically. SBR Carrier uses two attributes for this instruction: Session-Timeout and Termination-Action. The Session-Timeout attribute value is configurable (as the Reauthorization Interval) in seconds. This attribute sets the maximum time of service to be provided to the subscriber. The server sends this attribute to the client in the response. The value of the Termination-Action attribute instructs the non-3GPP network to perform what is necessary after Session-Timeout elapses.

To add periodic reauthorization attributes for the selected reference point using the Web GUI:

  1. In the Add Authorization dialog box for authorization attributes (Figure 148), select the Periodic Reauthorization option.

    The Periodic Reauthorization pane (Figure 149) appears.

    Figure 149: Add Authorization Dialog—Periodic Reauthorization

    Add
Authorization Dialog—Periodic Reauthorization
  2. Enter a value (in seconds) in the Reauthorization Interval field.

    This value equates to the Session-Timeout attribute and specifies the maximum time of service to be provided to the subscriber.

    Note: The Termination Action field displays the value of the Termination-Action attribute that instructs the non-3GPP network to perform what is necessary after the session timeout elapses. This field is a read-only field.

  3. Click OK.

    The Attributes tab in the Create Local Profile pane (Figure 147) displays the updated attributes list.

Adding a Return or Copy List

The attributes to be set in the response feature allows you to specify which attributes you want to set in the response sent to the client. This feature always replaces all instances of a particular attribute with its locally configured attribute. Only one locally configured value of any attribute can exist.

To create an attribute return list, you select the attributes you want to return in the response from a predefined list. For each attribute, the Web GUI prompts you to enter values using familiar data types such as string, integer, or network address. You then place the attributes in the order in which you want them to be sent in the response.

By including appropriate attributes in the response list, you can create a variety of connection policies. For example, particular IP addresses can be assigned to specific subscribers, IP header compression can be turned on or off, or a time limit can be assigned to the connection.

The attributes to be copied from downstream feature allows you to specify which attributes you want to copy from a downstream server response. This feature always adds all instances of a particular attribute from the downstream server response to the response sent to the client.

For example, if SBR Carrier in a visited public land mobile network (VPLMN) is accessed by a roaming subscriber, the subscriber’s home SBR Carrier server is responsible for performing session authorization. When SBR Carrier in the VPLMN receives the request from the roaming subscriber, it proxies the request to the subscriber’s home server (HPLMN). The home server performs the authorization and returns the response to the SBR Carrier server in the VPLMN. SBR Carrier uses the list of attributes to be copied from downstream to select which attributes are copied from the HSS or home server response, and in what order they are to be placed in the final response it sends to the non-3GPP network.

To create an attribute copy list, you select the attributes you want to copy from the downstream server response from a predefined list. You do not enter values for the attributes; the values are copied from the downstream server response. You then place the attributes in the order in which you want them to be sent in the response.

Note: Only attributes that are in the original response from the downstream server may be copied. If the ordered list includes an attribute that is not in the response from the downstream server, the attribute is not copied in the final response to the client.

To add a return or copy list to the SWa, STa, SWm, or S6b reference point using the Web GUI:

  1. In the Add Authorization dialog box for authorization attributes (Figure 148), select either the AVPs to be Sent in the Response or AVPs to be Copied from the Response option.

    The AVPs to be Sent in the Response or AVPs to be Copied from the Response pane appears. Figure 150 shows a sample AVPs to be Sent in the Response pane.

  4. Select or enter a value for the selected attribute in the Value field.

    The Add AVP dialog box changes according to the type of attribute list you are creating. The AVPs to be Sent in the Response option requires that you enter or select a value, string, or IP address. For the AVPs to be Copied from the Response option, you just select the attribute to be copied from the attributes list.

  5. Click Add.
  6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 to assign more attributes to the return or copy list.
  7. When you are finished adding AVPs, click Cancel.

    The AVPs to be Sent in the Response pane displays the updated list of selected attributes. For a sample AVPs to be Sent in the Response dialog box, see Figure 150. You can modify the return or copy list by using the Edit and Delete buttons.
