A Security Policy Infrastructure for Tactical Service Oriented Architectures
MetadataShow full item record
Tactical networks are affected by multiple constraints related to the limited node characteristics and the availability of resources. These constraints within the highly dynamic tactical environment, impose significant limitations to the functionalities and efficiency of current generic security policy frameworks. Earlier studies have provided a risk analysis of tactical service oriented architectures (SOA), and a set of fine-grained protection goals in correspondence to the aforementioned constraints. Furthermore, web ontology language has been identified as a suitable mediator towards the requirements and opportunities imposed by tactical SOA. Thus, in this article we present a security policy framework dedicated to tactical networks, as it has been developed within the project TACTICS.
