Abstract:

In the future, cyber attacks will have a growing effect on the outcome of military operations. The Cyber Fighter Associate CyFiA is a decision support program that works with the cyber network modeling and simulation system CyAMS . The CyFiA will allow network security personnel to keep mission integrity through the use of cyber agility maneuvers. The CyFiA is being tested on CyAMS, a tool that uses an ns-3-based large network simulator. A large of amount of information needs to be exchanged between these 2 programs, and an efficient protocol and method for communication is required. A communication protocol utilizing specific ports is described in this report. It is this protocol that enables the CyFiA programs to com-municate and operate in large network simulations.
