Abstract
The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) is seeking to research and develop mechanisms and systems for providing inter-operable, secure, dynamic authentication of individuals, systems, devices and processes in the tactical coalition environment. Broadata Communications, Inc. (BCI) proposes to develop an entirely new generic mechanism that has the capability to, construct appropriate in real-time, keys that can be tightly coupled to a security policy, an access control, or a system/human entity. This means that a single key can be used in an authentication protocol and be provided through current protocols, however, its authentication does not have to through a central certifying authority or a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) of certifying authorities. The system can be used during a tactical coalition mission in mobile and non-mobile networks., and we call it "Smarter Key".
