The joint NO and UK demonstration of integrated MMHS, PKI and Directory Systems at JWID 2003
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes the joint NO and UK interoperability testing of integrated MMHS, PKI and Directory Systems conducted at JWID 2003. Joint Warrior Interoperability Programme (JWID) is a yearly event with the main site located at NATO SHAPE HQ. The role of JWID is to introduce new, evolving and low risk technologies that address capability areas within the Command, Control, Communications and Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance areas, or that offer potential solutions to interoperability issues. A formal Military Message Handling System (MMHS) is one of the most important components in a C2IS and is being widely implemented in NATO countries and in NATO. NATO has under NC3B defined a standard for formal Military Message Handling Systems (MMHS - STANAG 4406), together with solutions for application security services for MMHS. In order to make efficient use of these application security services (i.e. to handle Certificates and CRLs for digital signatures), the MMHS must be integrated with PKI and Directory Systems.
