Paper Abstract

We present Dynamic Survivable Resource Pooling (DSRP) that provides survivable access to resources and services in battlefield networks. The servers accessed by mobile users (e.g., FCS backbone managers, TPKI, Bandwidth Brokers, Situation Awareness/Common Network Picture, SIP) are pooled together for higher availability and failover; the Name Servers (NSs) are responsible for maintaining server pools, load balancing, and server discovery. In the DSRP scheme, NSs are placed on a virtual backbone (VB): a highly distributed, scalable, and survivable network formed and maintained through one-hop beacons. By making locally scoped decisions, VB is capable of reorganizing both itself and pool registrations in response to mobility, failures, and partitioning. A proof-of-concept of the DSRP successfully demonstrated its survivability.
