A Cognitive Network-Based Network Security Architecture for Mission Critical Communications

Anssi Kärkkäinen


The mission critical networks provide a highly deployable and reliable communication platform for authorities enhancing their ability in command and control. Emerging cybersecurity threats must be considered when new mission critical networking capabilities are designed and implemented. New threats require novel approaches when implementing network security. Cognitive networks are a promising concept to build smart and dynamic networks. This work provides an analysis how cognitive networking improves security capabilities and how new approaches of building security is required. The article describes a novel cybersecurity architecture with cognitive capabilities. The architectural model is proved by a scenario-based evaluation. A cognitive layer provides several advantages for security controls and management, but some implementation challenges still remain.
