The goal of the MILNET Protocol program is to enhance network security and performance by providing user-level attribution for military computer networks to de-anonymize network traffic. The MNP program’s suite of security techniques will ensure that use of the network is limited to authorized users and that it is extremely difficult to spoof or inject false traffic into the network.
In addition, with the ability to clearly identify individual aspects of network traffic, unit commanders will be able to adapt and reassign network resources as dictated by constantly changing tactical situations to guarantee the swift delivery of mission-critical information to the correct individuals and units.
In the previous phase of the program, the BBN team developed and successfully demonstrated the network technology in a test environment using 200 network devices at a data transmission speed of 100 Mbps. The team is currently working towards the goal of a networked environment scaled to 10,000 devices working at speeds up to 100 times faster.
