This deliverable contains the outcome of the various research studies performed in WPB3 regarding the management plane extension of the home gateway. The deliverable has been developed in parallel with the deliverable DB3.5 which describes the generic Home Gateway enhancements. The management aspects are defined in this deliverable. The main goals of these studies are: • To extend the management domain initially limited to TR-69 enabled devices and one single TR-069 auto-configuration server. • To provide a secure management platform for the OSGi part of the gateway. • To extend the management plane to enable multi-provider management. Three major enhancements, compared to the current state of the art, have been designed and are specified in this deliverable: The first innovation enables multi-provider access to TR-69 managed devices. Based on a set of identified scenarios, we offer multi-provider support through a simplified Role Based Access Control (RBAC) model in the gateway. The instantiation of the model over the TR-69 information model is also part of the provided specification. We show that no modification in the protocol is required to support this new feature. The second innovation delivered here is the opening of the gateway on two sides. First we extend the management domain by enabling home devices supporting (and being managed by) the UPnP protocol to be managed over TR-69. To enable this, a TR-069 management proxy has been designed in the home gateway. All its features and operations are specified in this document. The second management domain extension has been obtained by enabling TR-69 worlds to be visible (and accessible) over the IETF Netconf protocol. The specification consists in a data-model mapping into Netconf and of a protocol operations mapping. The support of TR-69 in Netconf has been achieved through the definition of a TR-69 capability, thus maintaining full compliance with the IETF standard. The last innovation provided in this document relies on the design of a multi-provider management interface for the OSGi service platform of the gateway. While general management concepts where already addressed for this device in previous studies (see also MUSE Phase 1 deliverable DB3.1 [3]), none of them did seriously address the security of the management plane for this service level. This drawback has been addressed in WPB3 and a fully secure multi provider solution is presented here. Based on an identified management model and several gateway management scenarios, we provide a secure model for safe bundle management. Its implementation is also detailed in this document. Results of these studies have also been forwarded as input towards the TF3 deliverables.
