Abstract
The Joint Battlespace Infosphere (JBI) program needs an object repository for secure, reliable storage and retrieval of JBI objects. ATC-NY will construct ORIS, a peer-to-peer object repository suitable for the JBI. Self-organizing peer-to-peer networkshave proven to be robust and scalable to very large numbers of nodes and objects. However, current peer-to-peer substrates are not suitable for military environments because they lack sufficient security. ORIS adds strong security to peer-to-peertechnology, so that the JBI can be used to share information securely among coalition partners. ORIS also implements query processing, which enables clients to locate objects that satisfy complex queries. Both security and query processing areimplemented using the robust, scalable peer-to-peer techniques. Although its primary product focus is the JBI, ORIS will also serve as a secure, robust foundation for commercial information-centric applications, enabling them to exploit the extensiveresources currently unused on enterprise desktop computers.
