Abstract
The INSC project was an international collaborative research and development activity established under an MOU among eight NATO nations to investigate and demonstrate a secure IPv6 network infrastructure capable of supporting a multi-national military coalition operation. The NATO C3 Agency also accepted an invitation to contribute although they did not sign the MOU. The goal was to demonstrate a network infrastructure that supported security, interoperability, manageability, and mobility. Security was provided at the Network Layer using the IPsec protocol. No security was provided at the Application Layer. The project successfully demonstrated a working security infrastructure with electronic key management to support the operation of IPsec devices. The main lesson resulting from this demonstration was that, although IPsec/IPv6 and electronic key management are both available independently as commercial technologies, they have not yet been fully integrated in a manner that provides a secure, easily manageable, scalable security infrastructure.
