As computer systems become more open and interconnected, the need for reliable and secure communication also increases. The NRL Pump was introduced to balance the requirements of reliability, congestion control, fairness, and good performance against those of threats from covert channels and denial of service attacks. In this paper, we describe two prototype efforts. One implements the Pump at the process top layer in terms of a 4-layer network reference model and the other implements the Pump at the transport layer. We then discuss lessons learned and how these lessons will be used in deciding upon the final hardware implementation of the Pump.
