The Cyber Security Simulation Service (CSSS) is a platform that provides a simulation environment modeling the impact of cyber attacks and related countermeasure in tactical networks exploiting the software defined networking (SDN) paradigm. CSSS integrates a generator of tactical scenarios, a network simulator, a graphical user interface, and a real SDN controller. The scenario generator, network simulator and user interface interact with each others exploiting a NATO standard called High Level Architecture (HLA); the real SDN controller instead interacts with the simulator by exploiting the system in the loop approach and can interact with the graphical user interface through a proprietary protocol. The CSSS can be used as training tool and/or Decision Support System by cyber and IT operators in tactical contexts.

In this paper SDN-WISE, a Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution for WIreless SEnsor networks, is introduced. Differently from the existing SDN solutions for wireless sensor networks, SDN-WISE is stateful and pursues two objectives: (i) to reduce the amount of information exchanged between sensor nodes and the SDN network controller, and (ii) to make sensor nodes programmable as finite state machines so enabling them to run operations that cannot be supported by stateless solutions. A detail...

Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET) are widely used in tactical scenarios because they can be deployed rapidly in hostile areas and the distributed nature of their operations makes them robust to nodes failures. However, distributed control involves new vulnerabilities that might be critical in electronic warfare scenarios. In this paper we focus on black hole attacks which introduce in the network fake routing information. On the consequence of the above information, the malicious node enters in the...

The {\it software defined networking} (SDN) paradigm promises to dramatically simplify network configuration and resource management. Such features are extremely valuable to network operators and therefore, the industrial (besides the academic) research and development community is paying increasing attention to SDN. Although wireless equipment manufacturers are increasing their involvement in SDN-related activities, to date there is not a clear and comprehensive understanding of what are the op...

While it has been a belief for over a decade that wireless sensor networks (WSN) are application-specific, we argue that it can lead to resource underutilization and counter-productivity. We also identify two other main problems with WSN: rigidity to policy changes and difficulty to manage. In this paper, we take a radical, yet backward and peer compatible, approach to tackle these problems inherent to WSN. We propose a Software-Defined WSN architecture and address key technical challenges for i...

Mininet is a system for rapidly prototyping large networks on the constrained resources of a single laptop. The lightweight approach of using OS-level virtualization features, including processes and network namespaces, allows it to scale to hundreds of nodes. Experiences with our initial implementation suggest that the ability to run, poke, and debug in real time represents a qualitative change in workflow. We share supporting case studies culled from over 100 users, at 18 institutions, who hav...

The use of live platforms, real time virtual simula tors and constructive entities have been used to provide improved systems engineering requirements and to allow customers to be involved during the entire development and test process. As an example, a series of Network Centric Operations (NCO) experiments were conducted by providing operators knowledge (information, data) from geographically separated groups, faster and in a mo re meaningful way, than previously possible to facilitate rapid pr...

This whitepaper proposes OpenFlow: a way for researchers to run experimental protocols in the networks they use every day. OpenFlow is based on an Ethernet switch, with an internal flow-table, and a standardized interface to add and remove flow entries. Our goal is to encourage networking vendors to add OpenFlow to their switch products for deployment in college campus backbones and wiring closets. We believe that OpenFlow is a pragmatic compromise: on one hand, it allows researchers to run expe...
