Under a $31 million Military Network Protocol contract issued by DARPA, a team led by Lockheed Martin is developing new cyber assurance procedures aimed at protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and security of military networks. In developing this new protocol for military networks, Lockheed Martin's team will develop router technologies that include strong authentication and self configuration capabilities to improve security, reduce the need for trained network personnel, and lower overall life cycle costs for network management. Lockheed Martin is teamed with Anagran, Juniper Networks, LGS Innovations, and Microsoft to develop the new Military Network Protocol. Stanford University will also support the development effort.
