Paper Abstract

The SAFENET II standard is a seven layer network profile which is being developed for use in Navy computer networks. SAFENET II employs the ANSI FDDI standard as its physical and data link layers. The profile also includes protocols from 051 and MAP as well as the emerging Xpress Transfer Protocol (XTP). The SAFENET II profile is broken down into three protocol suites: 051 lightweight and combined. Any of these suites may be implemented depending on the system requirements. The SAFENET II physical topology is adapted from the FDDI standard and includes the use of bypass switches for enhanced reliability. SAFENET II provides many network survivability features to the system integrator.
