AbstractIn today's information-based society, attacks on information systems and infrastructure are everyday occurrences. The more critical a system is, the more likely it is to be under constant attack. Naturally military systems are prime targets. A likely initial target of a sophisticated cyber attack on a mission critical system will be the Computer Network Defense (CND) itself. Hence, there is an immediate need and opportunity for CND systems that cannot only endure an attack, but be capable of Reconsti-tution after being crippled. Sentar is currently developing a situational awareness system to protect the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system using our Work-Centered Interface for Computer Network Defense (WCI-CND) technology. This CND system is being built using intelligent agent technology and is designed for continuous evolution. Sentar is also designing a Secure Agent-based (SAB) platform for the above capability. The goal of SAB is to have a platform that can itself survive cyber attacks. Once SAB is operational, one can migrate the WCI-based defense system onto the SAB. This work can be ex-tended by the currently proposed effort to encompass reconstitution of a crippled CND system. Thus Sentar proposes the design and development of the Secure Agent-based Operations Reconstitution (SABOR) system
