Configuring DHCP Option 60 and Option 82 with VPN-ID Support for Transparent Automatic Logon

Intelligent Services Gateway (ISG) is a Cisco software feature set that provides a structured framework in which edge devices can deliver flexible and scalable services to subscribers. The DHCP Option 60 and Option 82 with VPN-ID Support for Transparent Automatic Logon feature enables service providers to provision triple-play services to households by supporting transparent automatic logon (TAL) through Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) option 60 and option 82, and wholesale IP sessions through the virtual private network (VPN) ID extension to option 82.

Prerequisites for DHCP Option 60 and Option 82 with VPN-ID Support for Transparent Automatic Logon

For vendor-class ID (option 60) to be used for authorization, the vendor-class ID must be inserted by the customer appliance (that is, the PC, phone, or set-top box) in the DHCP option 60 information.

For provisioning of wholesale IP sessions, the VPN-ID must be inserted in the DHCP option 82 information along with the circuit ID and the remote ID.

Restrictions for DHCP Option 60 and Option 82 with VPN-ID Support for Transparent Automatic Logon

RADIUS proxy users are not supported by this feature.

Information About DHCP Option 60 and Option 82 with VPN-ID Support for Transparent Automatic Logon

ISA Automatic Subscriber Logon

TAL enables a specified identifier to be used in place of the username in authorization requests. Enabling the Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) server to authorize subscribers on the basis of a specified identifier allows subscriber profiles to be downloaded from the AAA server as soon as packets are received from subscribers.

Session start is the event that triggers TAL. For DHCP-initiated IP sessions, session start occurs when a DHCP DISCOVER request is received.

Authorization Based on Option 60 and Option 82

The circuit ID and remote ID fields (option 82) are part of the DHCP relay agent information option. A digital subscriber line access multiplexer (DSLAM) inserts the option 82 fields into DHCP messages; the customer appliance inserts the option 60 fields.

You can configure an ISG policy to use the circuit ID, remote ID, or vendor class ID, or a combination of the three, as the username in authorization requests. Alternatively, you can configure an ISG policy to use the NAS-Port-ID as the identifier for authorization. When you use the NAS-Port-ID as the identifier, you can configure it to include a combination of circuit ID, remote ID, and vendor-class ID.

By default, the ISG uses the circuit ID and remote ID that are provided by the Layer 2 edge-access device for authorization. The configuration of the ip dhcp relay information option command determines whether the ISG uses the option 82 information received, generates its own, or (when the encapsulate keyword is specified) encapsulates a prior option 82 along with its own option 82. For more information, see the "Configuring the Cisco IOS DHCP Relay Agent" section of the Cisco IOS IP Addressing Services Configuration Guide .

If the NAS-Port-ID is not configured to include option 60 and option 82, the NAS-Port-ID is populated with the ISG interface that received the DHCP relay agent information packet; for example, Ethernet1/0.

DHCP Option 82 with VPN-ID Suboption

To support wholesale services for IP sessions, the VPN-ID, together with the circuit ID and remote ID, must be specified in authorization requests. The DHCP option 60 and option 82 with VPN-ID Support for Transparent Automatic Logon feature enables you to include two sets of option 82 information in a single message so that devices within a household can be differentiated:

  • The first set of option 82 information carries household information and option 60 to associate the device within the household.
  • The second set of option 82 information, if VPN-ID is configured, carries the VPN information for the household.

The DHCP server processes the option 82 information, forwarded by the relay, with the VPN-ID, remote ID, circuit ID, and option 60 information to allocate an address.

How to Configure DHCP Option 60 and Option 82 with VPN-ID Support for Transparent Automatic Logon

You can configure an ISG policy for TAL using either a username or the NAS-Port-ID for authorization.
