Abstract : Secure Solutions, Inc. was tasked by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) to perform a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II network security research effort consisting of a series of analyses that extend the Phase I effort. This Final Report summarizes the results of those analyses. The Phase II effort consisted of the following tasks: Task 1 - Demonstration of Phase I Concept. Task 2 - Navy Security Standards and Applications Analysis. Task 3 - Analysis of End-to-End Encryption and Traffic Flow Confidentiality Options. Task 4 - Naval Network Security Requirements Analysis. Task 5 - NetWare Administrator's Security Guidance Handbook. Task 7- Participate in Security Groups. In response to changing needs of the Navy, Phase II was redirected from a technical perspective with a focus on communications security technology to a "hands-on" perspective with a focus on network security Administration. The Novell NetWare Security Administrator's Security Guidance Handbook was the result of that redirection. The importance of this redirection has been recognized and will be carried into Phase III with the development of a comprehensive set of network security administration tools. In addition, the scope will be broadened to include support of Microsoft Windows NT security administrators as well. (AN)
