Federal Plan for Advanced Networking Research and DevelopmentandTrusted Internet Connections (TIC)

March 2008

itfan charge and terms of reference
ITFAN Charge and Terms of Reference
  • January 31, Dr. Marburger, Director of OSTP, charged the Committee on Technology to:
    • Establish the Interagency Task Force on Advanced Networking (ITFAN)
    • Direct ITFAN to develop an interagency Federal Plan for Advanced Networking Research and Development
    • Deliver a preliminary draft by May, 2007 to provide input to the FY 2009 Federal budget planning cycle
  • Terms of Reference Charged ITFAN to Develop a Plan With:
    • A strategic vision of current and future needs of the Federal agencies, the commercial sector and the academic community
    • Recommended scope and objectives for Federal advanced networking R&D
    • Identification of existing networking R&D programs and investments and a gap analysis of existing versus needed advanced networking R&D
    • Identification and prioritization of advanced networking R&D needs
    • A process for developing an implementation roadmap to guide future advanced networking R&D activities

study context
Study Context
  • Based on visions of critical Federal advanced networking capabilities for the middle for the next decade
  • Identify research priorities across the Federal networking R&D portfolio
  • Support the American Competitiveness Initiative’s call for increased Federal investment to:
    • Ensure continued U.S. leadership in scientific and technological innovation
    • Substantially improve capacity, adaptability and end-to-end performance of Federal research networks
  • Advanced networks include heterogeneous anytime anywhere networking:
    • Federation across domains and widely differing technologies
    • Dynamic mobile networking with autonomous management
    • Quality of service
    • Support for sensornets
    • Near-real-time autonomous discovery, configuration and management of resources
    • End-to-end security tailored to the application and user

four major networking goals
Four major Networking Goals
  • A proposed coordinated research effort across Federal agencies focused on four goals:
    • Goal 1: Provide network services anytime, anywhere
    • Goal 2: Make secure global federated networks possible
    • Goal 3: Manage network complexity and heterogeneity
    • Goal 4: Foster innovation through development of advanced network systems and technologies

FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY

five dimensions of networking research
Five Dimensions of Networking Research
  • For each networking goal, the plan considered five dimensions of networking research:
    • Foundations: Develop architectural principles, frameworks, and network models to deal with complexity, heterogeneity, multi-domain federation, management, and transparency, end-to-end performance, and differentiated services.
    • Design: Develop secure, near-real-time, flexible, adaptive services with built-in intelligence to facilitate discovery, federation, and management of resources across domains and to increase the application robustness and invulnerability to attack even in extraordinarily complex systems and new ways of interconnecting networks to provide those services.
    • Management: Develop management methods and tools that enable effective deployment, control, and utilization of networks and resources in dynamic environments, across domains, and with ever increasing network and application complexity.
    • Security: Achieve a high degree of security even in complex, heterogeneous federation and policy environments, especially in the face of component failures, malicious activities, and attacks, while also respecting privacy
    • Usability: Develop adaptable, user-centered services and interfaces that promote efficiency, effectiveness, and meeting user needs without overwhelming users with unneeded data.

technology development cycle
Technology Development Cycle
  • Federal research efforts are part of a technology development cycle
    • Basic and applied research in the full range of network hardware, software, security and middleware needed to support the next generation of uses for networks and explore new paths
    • Partnerships with application developers to test basic research ideas on real problems in areas including national security, support of scientific leadership, and human health
    • A suite of testbeds that enable understanding and creation of new technologies in the large and the small. The large scale of existing deployed networks such as the Internet limits research and development, while laboratory and simulation studies cannot address some aspects of the solutions, particularly complexity, their ability to scale, and their potential realism. The suite of testbeds and prototypes will range from high flexibility/low cost platforms to high performance embedded systems.

plan analysis
Plan Analysis
  • Task force analysis focused on:
    • Existing status of Federal research
    • Expected results of Federal agency existing and planned research programs to the middle of the next decade
    • Significant research challenges expected to remain in the middle of the next decade under the existing Federal agency networking R&D profile.
  • Addressing the significant research challenges could provide additional options for meeting agency mission requirements, add significant flexibility, robustness, and scalability to the underlying basic network design and architecture, and support new commercial applications and technologies that will drive future U.S. competitiveness and ensure continued U.S. leadership in networking.
  • The Task Force strongly supports collaborative partnerships among government organizations and counterparts in the private sector, to accelerate transfer and commercialization of new technologies.

conclusions
Conclusions
  • The Task Force recommends that the Government pursue the networking challenges aggressively to accelerate progress toward the long-term goals and to gain maximum benefits to the national interest from Federal networking R&D investments.
