31. Guidelines on Firewalls and Firewall Policy
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-41 Rev 1
Topic: Networking
Published: 9/28/2009
Authors: Karen Ann Scarfone, Paul Hoffman
Abstract: Firewalls are devices or programs that control the flow of network traffic between networks or hosts employing differing security postures. This publication provides an overview of several types of firewall technologies and discusses their security c ...

32. Test Tool for Industrial Ethernet Network Performance
Topic: Networking
Published: 6/5/2009
Authors: James D Gilsinn, Freemon Johnson
Abstract: The number of devices that implement Ethernet interfaces on the factory floor is growing at an exponential rate along with the adoption of industrial-grade Ethernet networks on the plant floor. In addition to the sheer number of devices using indust ...

33. EtherNet/IP Interoperability Recommendations
Topic: Networking
Published: 4/22/2009
Authors: James D Gilsinn, Kevin Knake
Abstract: The EtherNet/IP interoperability recommendations are a result of work generated by the ongoing series of EtherNet/IP Implementors Workshops. The recommendations were created to promote EtherNet/IP device interoperability through product functionality ...

34. Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6)
Topic: Networking
Published: 5/30/2008
Authors: Sheila E Frankel, David Green
Abstract: Recognizing that the 32-bit addresses used by the current version of the Internet Protocol (IPv4) would soon be depleted, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has been developing its successor, Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). This has been ...

35. Interference Avoidance in Rapidly Deployed Wireless Ad hoc Incident Area Networks
Topic: Networking
Published: 4/18/2008
Authors: Mohamed T. Refaei, Nader Moayeri, Michael R Souryal
Abstract: A common strategy for responding to indoor emergency scenarios is to rapidly deploy a group of first responders inside the incident area and an incident command center outside of the incident area. First responders are equipped with radios that allow ...

36. Experimental Demonstration of an Active Quantum Key Distribution Network with Over Gbps Clock Synchronization
Topic: Networking
Published: 12/4/2007
Authors: Lijun Ma, Alan Mink, Hai Xu, Oliver T Slattery, Xiao Tang
Abstract: We demonstrate a three-node QKD network that allows multiple users to share secure keys. This QKD network operates on the 850 nm and 1550 nm wavelengths at 1.25 Gbps clock rate. The communication route is controlled by a MEMS optical switch. In this ...

37. Real-Time Deployment of Multihop Relays for Range Extension
Topic: Networking
Published: 6/11/2007
Authors: Michael R Souryal, Johannes Geissbuehler, Leonard E. Miller, Nader Moayeri
Abstract: When the range of single-hop wireless communication is limited by distance or harsh radio propagation conditions, relays can be used to extend the communication range through multihop relaying. This paper targets the need in certain scenarios for rap ...

38. Establishing Wireless Robust Security Networks: A Guide to IEEE 802.11i
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-97
Topic: Networking
Published: 2/7/2007
Authors: Sheila E Frankel, Bernard Eydt, L Owens, Karen Kent Scarfone
Abstract: This report provides readers with a detailed explanation of next generation 802.11 wireless security. It describes the inherently flawed Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and explains 802.11i's two-step approach (interim and long-term)to providing effec ...

39. PIV Data Model Test Guidelines
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-85B
Topic: Networking
Published: 7/31/2006
Authors: Ramaswamy Chandramouli, Ketan Mehta, Pius A Uzamere, Davie Simon, Nabil Ghadiali, Andrew P Founds
Abstract: In order to build the necessary PIV infrastructure to support common unified processes and government-wide use of identity credentials, NIST developed this test guidance document that ensures interoperability of PIV data. This document provides test ...

40. Secure Domain Name System (DNS) Deployment Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-81
Topic: Networking
Published: 5/16/2006
Authors: Ramaswamy Chandramouli, Scott William Rose
Abstract: [Superseded by SP 800-81 Rev. 1 (April 2010):] We examine the performance of multimodal biometric authentication systems using state-of-the-art Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) finger ...
