Abstract
In April 2006 the PBNM prototype system developed by Defence R&D Canada (DRDC) Ottawa in collaboration with the Communications Research Centre (CRC) was demonstrated to The Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP) Panel 11 using five Administrative Domains (ADs) interconnected by the DREnet as a Wide Area Network (WAN). The purpose of the demonstration was to illustrate how the prototype system automates the configuration and administration of Policy Enforcement Point (PEP) devices using low level policies generated from negotiated high level policies by a Policy Decision Point (PDP). Lessons learned from the demonstration related to the complexity of the policy specification and the non-intuitive nature of the policy administration tool, as well as to the lack of integrity provided by the Policy Repository for policy documents and policy negotiation objects. Further design and development efforts are required to address the deficiencies and issues identified during the planning, implementation, and presentation of the demonstration.
