IANA Registration of Trustword Lists: Guide, Template and IANA
Considerations
draft-pep-trustwords-01
Abstract
This document specifies the IANA Registration Guidelines for
Trustwords, describes corresponding registration procedures, and
provides a guideline for creating Trustword list specifications.
Trustwords are common words in a natural language (e.g., English),
which byte strings are mapped to. Such a mapping makes verification
processes like fingerprint comparisons more practical, and less prone
to misunderstandings.

1. Introduction
In public-key cryptography, comparing the respective public key
fingerprints for each of the communication partners involved is vital
to ensure that there is no Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attack on the
communication channel. These fingerprints are often represented by a
chain of hexadecimal characters (or other encodings that are
difficult to read for humans), which are normally impractical,
cumbersome, and prone to misunderstandings for end-users. To
mitigate these challenges, several systems offer Trustword comparison
as an alternative.
Trustwords are common words in a natural language (e.g., English),
which byte strings are mapped to. Using Trustwords makes
verification processes like fingerprint comparisons more natural for
users.
For example, in pEp's Privacy by Default proposition
[I-D.pep-general] Trustwords are used to facilitate easy contact
verification for end-to-end encryption. Trustword comparison is
offered after the peers have opportunistically exchanged public keys.
Examples of Trustword lists used by current pEp implementations can
be found here in CSV format:
https://gitea.pep.foundation/pEp.foundation/pEpEngine/src/branch/
master/db
In addition to contact verification, Trustwords are also used for
other purposes, such as Human-Readable 128-bit Keys [RFC1751], One
Time Passwords (OTP) [RFC1760] [RFC2289], SSH host-key verification,
VPN server certificate verification, deriving private keys in
blockchain applications for cryptocurrencies, and to import or
synchronize secret keys across multiple devices owned by a single
user [I-D.pep-keysync]. Further ideas include the use of Trustwords
for private key recovery in case of loss, contact verification in
Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) [RFC6120], or for
X.509 certificate verification in browsers [RFC3647].
This document specifies the IANA Registration Guidelines for
Trustwords, describes corresponding registration procedures, and
provides a guideline for creating Trustword list specifications.

1.1. Requirements Language
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
"SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
"OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
BCP 14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
capitals, as shown here.
1.2. Terms
The following terms are defined for the scope of this document:
* pEp Handshake: The process of one user contacting another over an
independent channel in order to verify Trustwords (or fingerprints
as a fallback). This can be done in-person or through established
verbal communication channels, like a phone call.
[I-D.pep-handshake]
* Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack: cf. [RFC4949], which states: "A
form of active wiretapping attack in which the attacker intercepts
and selectively modifies communicated data to masquerade as one or
more of the entities involved in a communication association."
Note: Historically, MITM has stood for '_Man_-in-the-middle'.
However, to indicate that the entity in the middle is not always a
human attacker, MITM can also stand for 'Machine-in-the-middle' or
'Meddler-in-the-middle'.
2. The Concept of Trustword Mapping
2.1. Example
As already discussed, fingerprints are often represented by a long
string of hexadecimal characters. A typical fingerprint looks like
this:
F482 E952 2F48 618B 01BC 31DC 5428 D7FA ACDC 3F13
Instead of the hexadecimal string, Trustwords allow users to compare
ten common words of a language of their choosing. For example, the
above fingerprint, mapped to English Trustwords, might appear as:
dog house brother town fat bath school banana kite task
The same fingerprint might appear in German Trustwords as:
klima gelb lappen weg trinken alles kaputt rasen rucksack durch
Hoeneisen & Marques Expires 26 June 2023 [Page 4]
Internet-Draft IANA Registration of Trustword Lists December 2022
Note: These examples are for illustration purposes only, and are not
derived from any published Trustword list.
2.2. Previous work
The basic concept of Trustword mapping - also known as a biometric
word list - for fingerprint comparison is well-documented. Examples
of this concept are used with One-Time Passwords (OTP) [RFC1751]
[RFC1760] [RFC2289], as well as the PGP Word List ("Pretty Good
Privacy word list" [PGP.wl]. Furthermore, cryptocurrencies use a
similar concept for deriving private keys [bitcoin.wl].
Regarding today's needs, previous proposals have the following
shortcomings:
* Small/limited word lists, which generally result in more words to
compare
* Existing word lists are usually only available in English, which
limits their usefulness for non-English speakers
Furthermore, there are differences in the basic concept:
* The Trustword concept suggested herein intends to improve
usability and security for all users, instead of only the
technically-savvy.
* In many use cases, Trustwords are only read (aloud) during the
comparison process, rather than being written or typed. For
example, two users might compare their respective Trustwords
during a phone call. Verbal comparison reduces the need to keep
the actual Trustwords short. The use of longer Trustwords
increases the entropy within the system, as it allows for a larger
dictionary, and thus reduces the likelihood of phonetic
collisions.
2.3. Number of Trustwords for a language
If the number of Trustwords in a dictionary is low, shorter parts of
the original string (e.g., fingerprint) can be mapped to a single
Trustword. Thus, many Trustwords will need to be compared, which
results in a potentially cumbersome process for users, and lead to
reduced usability.
To reduce the number of Trustwords that need to be compared, pEp's
Privacy by Default proposition [I-D.pep-general] calls for 16-bit
scalars to be mapped to natural language words. Therefore, the size
(by number of key-value pairs) of any key-value pair structure is
Hoeneisen & Marques Expires 26 June 2023 [Page 5]
Internet-Draft IANA Registration of Trustword Lists December 2022
65536. However, the number of unique values to be used in a language
may be smaller than this number. This discrepancy can be addressed
by using the same value, or Trustword, for more than one key. In
such cases, the entropy of the representation is slightly reduced.
For example, a Trustword list of 42000 words still allows for an
entropy of log_2(42000), which is roughly 15.36 bits in 16-bit
mappings. As a consequence such Trustword lists are not bijective.
On the other hand, small Trustword lists allow for Trustwords
consisting of words with shorter strings (number of short words per
natural language is normally limited), which are easier to use in
implementations where Trustwords have to be typed or written, such as
in OTP applications.
Note: This specification allows for registration of variable numbers
of Trustwords per dictionary.
2.4. Language
Although English is used around the world, the vast majority of the
global population is not English-speaking. For an application to be
useful to as wide of a user base as possible, localization is
essential. Therefore, this specification allows for registration of
Trustword lists in different languages.
In applications where two humans are attempting to establish secure
communications, it is likely that they share a common language. At
this time, no real-world use cases for Trustword list translation
capability have been identified. Because the translation process
inherently - and drastically - increases complexity from an IANA
registration standpoint, the topic of Trustword translation is beyond
the scope of this document.
2.5. The nature of the words
Every Trustword list SHOULD be clear of offensive language (i.e.,
swear/curse words, slurs, derogatory language, etc.). This process
SHOULD be performed by native speakers of each respective language.
3. Security Considerations
There are no specific security considerations to this document.
4. Privacy Considerations
There are no specific privacy considerations to this document.

5. IANA Considerations
Each natural language requires a different set of Trustwords. To
allow implementers for identical Trustword lists, a IANA registry is
to be established. The IANA registration policy according to
[RFC8126] is "Expert Review" and "Specification Required".
[[ Note: Further details of the IANA registry and requirements for
the expert to assess the specification are for further study. A
similar approach as used in [RFC6117] is likely followed. ]]

5.2. IANA Registration
An IANA registration will contain the fallowing elements:
5.2.1. Language Code (<languagecode>)
The language code follows BCP47 ([RFC4647] and [RFC5646]), e.g., en,
de, ca, es-419, sl-rozaj, etc.
Example usage for German:
e.g. <languagecode>de</languagecode>
5.2.2. Bit Size (<bitsize>)
The bit size is the number of bits that can be mapped with the
Wordlist. The number of registered words in a word list MUST be 2 ^
(<bitsize>).
Example usage for 16-bit Wordlist:
e.g. <bitsize>16</bitsize>

Internet-Draft IANA Registration of Trustword Lists December 2022
- Added draft IANA XML Registration template, considerations,
explanation and examples
- Added Changelog to Appendix
- Added Open Issue section to Appendix
Appendix C. Open Issues
[[ RFC Editor: This section should be empty and is to be removed
before publication. ]]
* Better explain previous work on Trustwords
* More explanatory text for Trustword use cases, properties and
requirements
* Further details of the IANA registry and requirements for the
expert to assess the specification
* Adjust exact representation of wordlists
- e.g., XML, CSV, JSON, ...
- Syntax for non-ASCII letters or language symbols (UTF-8) in
Wordlists
* Need for optional entropy value assigned to words, to account for
similar phonetics among words in the same wordlist?
* Need for an additional field, to define what a wordlist is
optimized for, e.g., "entropy", "minimize word lengths", ...?
* Work out (requirements for) "smart" composition of the version
number
* Decide whether in non-bijective Wordlists the redundant words need
to be repeated in the IANA Registration
* Register only a hash over the wordlist with IANA?
* Does it make sense to open registrations for other patterns than
just words, e.g., images?
