Information About Support for SRTP Termination

The Support for SRTP Termination feature configures Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE) support for an Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) connection using the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite. This feature implements crypto-suite negotiation and appropriately sets up the call on the following two sides:
  • The Cisco Unified Call Manager (CUCM) or IP phones side—Connection between the end devices and CUBE
  • SIP Trunk side—Connection between CUBE and Service Provider

Prior to the Support for SRTP Termination feature, Cisco UBE could support an SRTP connection using the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_32 crypto suite. This crypto suite is still used by default, unless Cisco UBE is configured to use AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite.

Cisco UBE SRTP termination can be implemented in the following ways:

  • SRTP-RTP interworking—This method is used with devices (CUCM or IP Phone devices) that still support AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_32 crypto suite only.
  • SRTP-SRTP pass-through—This method is used with devices that support AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite.

    Note


    This method of implementation is currently supported by non-CUCM end devices like Microsoft Link. This method can also be used when CUCM or IP phone devices support AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite.

For End Devices Supporting AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 Crypto Suite

This method is used between Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE), IP Phones, and other Cisco Unified Call Manager (CUCM ) devices that support AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite.

  • CUCM or IP Phones side—A Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) connection using the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite exists here. In the figure below, IP Phone and CUBE within the customer network connect with an SRTP connection using AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite.
  • Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunk side—An SRTP connection using the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite. In the figure below, CUBE on the Customer Network and SBC on the Service Provider Network connect with an SRTP connection using the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite.
Figure 1. SRTP Connection Supporting AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite



For End Devices Supporting AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_32 Crypto Suite

A single Cisco Unified Call Manager (Cisco UBE) device cannot terminate a Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) connection with an IP Phone using the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_32 crypto suite and initiate an SRTP connection with an external Cisco UBE device with the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite at the same time.

For Cisco Unified Call Manager (CUCM) and IP Phone devices that support only AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_32 crypto suite, the interim SRTP-RTP interworking solution that is described below can be implemented.

  • CUCM or IP Phone side:
    • An SRTP connection using the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_32 crypto suite exists between the IP Phone and CUBE1.
    • An RTP connection exists between CUBE1 and CUBE2.
  • SIP trunk side—An SRTP connection using the AES_CM_128_HMAC_SHA1_80 crypto suite is initiated by CUBE2 here. In the image below, CUBE2 is the border element on the Customer Network and SBC is the border element on the Service Provider Network.
