Abstract
RedPhone Security (RPS) will produce a conceptual design and demonstration of a high-assurance-capable, multi-level secure (MLS) prototype to address radio management and configuration for Airborne, Maritime and Fixed Stations Joint Tactical Radio System (AMF JTRS) while meeting security and usability requirements. We will demonstrate both a Planning workstation called a Multi-Level Manager (MLM) and an Operating Environment (OE) capable of receiving control plane instructions sent to AMF JTRS radios and forwarding those instructions to simulated software defined radio components in cases where the total set of single-level component destinations spans multiple classification levels. The proposed prototype system will also provide demonstration of several secure methods to issue a network message to the OE, such that the OE will change the classification level of a radio subscriber port, e.g. an attached terminal, telephony device, etc. We hypothesize that to meet these demonstration objectives, a highly secure, multi-level secure embedded system will be added to an existing multiple-single-level AMF JTRS radio system. We call the new MLS embedded system the OE, and we refer to the resulting integrated AMF JTRS radio system as the prototype system.
