Abstract : Interconnectivity of coalition dynamic wireless networks presents a host of architectural and security challenges, adding to the security challenges faced by individual Nations. This report highlights the challenges of coalition communication interoperability and information sharing at the tactical edge where dynamic wireless networks offer transformative technologies at the dismounted soldier level. In this context, various mission scenarios are presented, offering tiered services for connectivity and for security, as well as identifying Communities of Trust (CoT) with inherent security requirements. These scenarios provide a framework for policy discussions and exploitation of network topologies for tactical deployments and interfaces among national networks. Adhering to the NATO Network- Enabled Capability (NNEC) vision, it is important to ensure that compatible security solutions from national programs will support the constraints of dynamic wireless networks in coalition deployments where they may be interconnected.
