Securing Databases in Army MANETS
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
This proposal suggests research on security issues for mobile databases running on a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). It will explore both state of the art commercial systems and advanced research issues for mobile security management. The first step will involve an extensive study of the commercial off-the-shelf technology. This study will identify the resources that can be used for addressing security issues in a MANET. This research will also explore several other issues that are important for this problem. Examples include data relocation/distribution and storage strategies for data confidentiality and fault tolerance, local agreement detection, secure update propagation, collaborative query processing, situation awareness and profile-based monitoring. The proposed research will explore several advanced data analysis-based techniques for network traffic monitoring and outlier detection. This work will be jointly performed by Agnik, LLC and University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
