1 NM Interoperability Technical Exchange Session 3: Emerging Technologies Dr. Stephen Bush, GE Research Mr. Morris Hornik, DoD CIO

2 Topics of Interest O SDN and applications O Cloud O Networks O Tactical/waveforms O Security O Emerging Technologies

3 O Architectures need to account for emerging technologies, and should be the baseline for how things are engineered, deployed, maintained and managed. O SDN Architectures O Supply-Chain counter-fitting – HW and SW lineage O Commercial vs DoD O Financial industry has tighter security relationships/architectures to protect financial networks

4 O SDN can establish coalition networks O Better provisioning O DRS built software routers, used in Blue-Force tracking network O SDN in tactical O Benefits – dumb, small devices: size, weight and power O Disadvantages – vulnerability, management complexity O Challenges – do we know if the network is doing what it is supposed to be doing? O Diversity and redundancy – how critical is it in the tactical – increases footprint, power, vulnerability (space shuttle example of 5 identical processors) O Opinion – SDN is premature O Recommend early investigation, testing to understand how SDN is applied, verified and secured

5 O Good about SDN O Evolution on how networking and NM is done O Retooling of staff O Size, weight and power O May need new tools/languages to enable humans effectively manage O Understanding Risk O Defining Cost

6 O Cognitive Radios O Is SDN an enabler of cognitive networking? O Evolved Packet Core O Standards and enforcement of standards O Trusted Platform Spec O Reference Implementation O Helps with interpretations of specifications O Need to make specs

7 O How many times has a packet been access/encrypted? A ‘smart’ packet with code running may capture access/modification info. O SDN and MANET O Content-Aware routing O MPLS and SDN? O SDN is not able to control network interface? O SDN may not scale? O Networked Soldier O Avoid information overload O Automated decision making for data flow O Attractive target O ‘big data’ problem O QOS and QOE are important

8 O How smart should the network be to keep things simple for the networked soldier O Company called Embrane O Evolution of SDN, new capabilities O Policy based management O SDN and other IT Drivers O Analytics and Business Intelligence O Big Data O Driven by need to rationalize IT costs, handling massive data volumes, mobile operations

9 O Volumes of data /Cloud/Data Processing & Filtering/ Data Shaping are now needed for DoD – 100G transport O Patterns (data that is compressible also lends to better analysis) O Agile, localized standards (vice enterprise-wide standards) may be more effective and timely O Is this risky? O Customers willing to give data? O Interactions/interfaces can evolve (instead of designing/specifying it completely upfront) O Smarts centralized initially, but pushed out (decentralized) over time O Instead of grand network solution that does everything, let the components do what they need to do, their way; but a centralized solution that pulls it all together to work with independent components

10 O Decentralized mgmt pitfalls O Too many data interfaces/relationships to manage O Trouble-shooting is not trivial O Knowing your network and knowing what ‘normal’ is O Deception Techniques that will make our networks safer O What can we do to make enemies see our network differently than what it is+ O What is the value of doing this? O CS and Neuroscience – biological system is compromised – risk management is more crucial
