Organically Assured Routing System (OARS) for the Airborne Network
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The Air Force has identified the need for an assured routing system for the Airborne Network (AN) that will protect the routing infrastructure from security attacks designed to disrupt the operation of the network. Subversion of the network routing function by attackers could be catastrophic for mission-critical applications running on the AN. This is because security attacks on the routing function could propagate misinformation within the routing tables resulting in misrouting of data packets in the network and consequent application failure. Architecture Technology Corporation proposes building Organically Assured Routing System (OARS) prototypes for demonstrating an attack-resistant routing infrastructure for the AN environment. The proposed Phase II effort will result in two OARS prototypes targeting both trusted and untrusted network systems. BENEFITS: OARS will address critically important security issues to enable networking across mobile ad-hoc and rapidly deployed network platforms. In the commercial arena, OARS mechanisms would enable secure operation of the next generation of IP-enabled commercial aircraft as well as the future Next Generation Air Transportation System (NGATS)
