To achieve information superiority in a coalition environment the U. S. has to seamlessly integrate coalition members, both NATO and Non-NATO, into its command and control processes along all echelons of military operations. In a coalition environment, it is extremely challenging to fuse multinational information systems to achieve seamless integration. This thesis focuses on the security issues that are involved in establishing coalition network interoperability. The coalition environment is defined in terms of purpose, command structure, mission area, and control functions. Network and information protection are discussed in terms of minimizing the threats to information systems security. Coalition information system user requirements are defined and some of the security mechanisms required to meet those requirements are discussed. Current solutions to secure coalition network interoperability are surveyed, followed by conclusions, recommendations and areas for further study.
