AbstractThe Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) has identified the need for secure and dynamic management and control of real-time networks to empower war-fighting commanders in network centric personnel recovery and other combat operations. Current hub-centric network control systems limit the capability of the network managers to support dynamic configuration of real-time networks, due to the bottlenecks created by the procedure that requires a central authority to make any changes in the network configuration. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) will leverage its extensive experience in secure satellite-based internetworking and other directly related network technologies to develop a novel system called Distributed Secure Control of Real-time Networks (DISCRETE) to support secure and dynamic management and control of IP-based networks. The distributed network control system will provide field commanders with agile and local control of real-time network configuration and security configuration. The security-integrated IP-centric system will be satellite-service-agnostic, providing the capability to make secure use of heterogeneous military and civilian satellite services. DISCRETE will be augmented with Logical Network Boundary Control to provide support for cross-domain collaborations for users with different levels of security clearance.
