Information technology — UPnP Device Architecture — Part 24-11: Internet gateway device control protocol — Level 2 — Wide area network internet protocol v6 — Firewall control service (Adopted ISO/IEC 29341-24-11:2017, first edition, 2017-09)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document specifies the characteristics of the UPnP networked service named WANIPv6FirewallControl, version 1. This service definition is compliant with UPnP Service Architecture 1.0 .
This service supports the management IPv6 firewall pinholes in Internet gateway devices independent of the WAN access type (PPP, DHCP, …). It also supports access control to restrict operations to authorized control points and users. It enables UPnP control points to:
- create and delete pinholes of limited duration that allow external communication from the WAN side of the gateway to reach devices on the LAN side
- determine operational status of a pinhole
This service does not support:
- retrieving detailed information about pinholes (such as associated external port or remaining lease duration)
- outbound packet filtering
- modification of security policies of a gateway device
