Abstract:

The JTRS PEO has identified the need to protect tactical networks from cyber threats that can compromise a mission. Cyber attacks can compromise, corrupt, or deny information exchange, rendering the network untrustworthy. Due to these threats, and because tactical networks are high-value targets for adversaries, it is vital that defensive technologies are developed to secure tactical networks. The ATC-NY team will develop CYTAN (CYbersecurity for TActical Networks), a software suite to prevent, detect, and mitigate cyber attacks on the software-defined radios in tactical mobile ad-hoc networks. CYTAN will be implemented as configurable, policy-based software plugins, each of which addresses a specific set of cyber threats. The modules will interpose at various levels of the radio"s software architecture, such as the data, control, and management planes. For example, a CYTAN module that detects information leakage and a module that prevents data corruption in transit could be installed on a JTRS radio to protect it from those threats.
