Abstract:

As military environments increase in the complexity, fidelity, scope, and number of participants, the reliance of the military upon information superiority to facilitate successful operations increases. In conjunction with this increase upon accurate and timely information the vulnerability of military forces to information attack also increases. Additionally, information management capability improvements inevitably increase the value of the information management networks and software thereby, directly increasing the incentive for attacking or pirating the network and software capabilities. Therefore, as the information management capabilities of military forces increase, there is a corresponding need for improved security for the software and network systems and this need for improved security will increase as the value of the software and network systems increases. This improvement in information management capabilities must be accompanied by a corresponding increase in the ability to manage the protection of military information systems, which is a topic that has received scant attention.
