Abstract : The U.S. Army Combat Developments Experimentation Center (USACDEC) Directorate of Information Management (DIM), Fort Ord, is currently involved with several network implementations, all at various stages of development, and wants adequate network security at an affordable price. During early stages of development they found almost no existing local area network (LAN) security guidance. This thesis does not look for a set or perfect LAN guidance solution, but develops a background for security considerations during the development of a network based on existing was supplied by USACDEC/DIM; all other (DOD, etc.) guidance was selected for review by USACDEC/DIM, but obtained elsewhere.
