Abstract
ABSTRACT: Current commercial CDS (Content Distribution System) cannot meet requirements of military applications, when C2 nodes are more exposed to disconnected, intermittent, and limited communications. In addition, commercial products do not have enough security features as needed in military operations. In this proposal, IAI and its collaborator propose SSCUDS (Survivable and Secure Content pUblishing and Distribution Network) to address this critical need. The major advantages of SSCUDS include: 1) high survivability by minimizing the dependence of central servers; 2) various security mechanisms are designed to meet the military requirements; 3) increased flexibility by allowing publishing from anywhere in the network; 4) fully support of node dynamics; 5) Service Oriented Architecture. BENEFIT: We anticipate that by the end of our Phase II effort we will have matured SSCUDS sufficiently and we will be able to demonstrate its functions to evaluate the near real-world use of content distribution. This will be the first CDS product that is capable of operating over dynamic networks and meets military security requirements. It will lay a sound foundation for future R & D. The commercial market of SSCUDS is huge. With enterprise and personal computing platforms becoming more mobile, the demand for survivable and secure content distribution solution is significant. Currently there is no product similar to SSCUDS. SSCUDS can be used by all companies and organizations interested in secure content distribution over dynamic networks. Its potential market size is large and its possible customers are innumerable.
