AbstractNot Available The objective of the proposed R&D is to expand the capabilities of AES' CORBA-based MLS Security Services (CMSS) prototype to address the stringent information security requirements of complex, advanced computing architectures. In contrast to conventional solutions for MLS problems which involve fixed hardware, software and data configurations, advanced computing architectures will adapt dynamically to changing mission, configuration, and resource requirements while protecting data, classified at multiple security levels, from compromise. Our Phase I technical approach is based on the augmentation of AES' CMSS prototype by enhancing its CORBA security broker with interfaces, logic and a management information base (MIB) to support the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). This SNMP interface will provide an open pathway to mission-specific network management functions which can not only monitor the current configuration of all CORBA objects, but also dynamically control and alter the distribution of those objects on specific network resources. A proof-of-concept prototype will be developed to demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing an SNMP interface for our CMSS security broker without compromising underlying CMSS security mechanisms. An optional Phase I effort will be conducted to develop and verify a MIB for application to the Total Ship Computing Environment during Phases II and III.
