Abstract
Salo IT Solutions, Inc. (SaloITS) will investigate, design, document, model, prototype and demonstrate an extensible architectural framework, protocol enhancements and other technologies that will provide scalable, fine-grained, quality-of-service (QoS) assurances in secure IP networks. The Extensible QoS Framework for Secure Tactical Networks ("the Secure QoS Framework") will be particularly beneficial in networks that experience congestion as a result of bandwidth-constrained links or rapid changes in topology or traffic flows, or that employ security measures such as the IP security protocols. The Secure QoS Framework will enable content-aware QoS assurances that will, for example, ensure geographically localized priority for location-specific, time-critical or survival-critical, situational-awareness information. The Framework will also support the development of highly efficient publish/subscribe dissemination systems that will minimize the unnecessary or redundant forwarding of messages that are not desired by any downstream subscribers.
