NMCI is a mechanism to transform the Navy and Marine Corps and move them into the 21st century of warfare. Just as the Internet has transformed business and commerce around the globe, NMCI will transform the U. S. Navy and Marine Corps by harnessing the power of an integrated network. Consequently, the Navy and Marine Corps must consider systems and strategies that address the need for survivability of the network mission essential functions in the same manner applied to major weapons systems on the battlefield. Network Survivability is a field of study that addresses exactly this issue. Developed in 1998 under a Defense contract by the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute, Network Survivability addresses the need of a network to fulfill its essential mission in the presence of failures, compromise, or attack. This thesis examines the Navy and Marine Corps Intranet mission and structure in an attempt to determine its inherent survivability and ability to support the needs of the Navy and Marine Corps team. It focuses on identifying the network mission functions and the ability of the network architecture to produce the required survivability characteristics. Based on this examination I propose a mission definition for NMCI and highlight the needs within the security architecture to achieve a survivable NMCI.
