This effort was initially part of the DARPA Information Assurance Science and Engineering Tools IASET program and then changed to part of the Survivable Wired Wireless Infrastructure for Military operations SWWIM program. The objective was to develop baseline taxonomy on which to build a foundation for the development of a formal science of cyberscience, survey related scientific areas to extract specific relevant concepts which would contribute to the formalization of cyberspace, extend these identified models in the IA domain and validate their usefulness in the context of information assurance. BBN focused on the Economic task of this effort. In particular, they looked at market-based approaches to network quality of service. They designed an architecture to counter the asymmetric threat posed in typical computer attacks by incorporating mechanisms into the network interactions. The particular attack that they focused was a DDoS attack. They were able to generate baseline experimental results from this model that demonstrated the desirability of developing a real-time infrastructure based market-based ideas.
