Research Institution
NAWCTSD Battle Lab runs many training and simulation systems to help train Naval war fighters. Each of these independent training systems contains one or more networks across one or more independent domains. Domains are separated by security level: Secret, Unclassified, etc. or by need-to-know or purpose: e.g., navigation, targeting, or simulation control. Each of these networks and domains contain routers, switches, servers, and other devices that need to be configured and managed in a centralized way, blocked by legitimate cross domain security concerns. A tool is needed to help manage all these systems and networks from a centralized console or network. This is difficult because of the cross-domain nature of these independent control networks spread across multiple security domains and purposes. ATCorp is proposing CNA, a Cross Domain Network Administration tool. CNA will allow these isolated networks to connect to a centralized Network Administration tool through Cross-domain Guards (CDS) to provide the missing centralized control. The devices in these networks that need to be controlled centrally include: routers, firewalls, switches (VLANs, SDN-Software Defined Networks, NaaSNetwork as a service), servers (DNS, DHCP, time server, file server, etc.), and others.
