Information Survivability for Evolvable and Adaptable Real-Time Command and Control Systems
January/February 1999 (vol. 11 no. 1)
pp. 228-238

Abstract—MITRE's Evolvable Real-Time C3 (Command, Control, and Communications) project has developed an approach that would enable current real-time systems to evolve into the systems of the future. This paper first summarizes the design and implementation of an infrastructure for an evolvable real-time C3 system. Then, a detailed discussion of the infrastructure requirements for a survivable real-time C3 system is presented. Finally security issues for survivability, as well as open implementation of the infrastructure, are described. In particular, adaptable middleware for survivable systems is discussed.
