The Extensible Architecture for the Analysis and Generation of Linked Simulations (EAAGLES) software is a framework for the design of robust, scalable, virtual, constructive, stand-alone, and distributed simulation applications. Its design integrates concepts from both virtual and constructive simulations to achieve an optimal blend of both. The Simulation… (More)
This paper analyzes two existing methods for securing Git repositories, Git-encrypt and Git-crypt, by comparing their performance relative to the default Git implementation. Securing a Git repository is necessary when the repository contains sensitive or restricted data. This allows the repository to be stored on any third-party cloud provider with… (More)
Quantum key distribution (QKD) exploits the laws of quantum physics to generate shared secret cryptographic keys and can detect eavesdroppers during the key generation process. However, previous QKD research has focused more on theory than practice.
Data quality challenges in distributed live-virtual-constructive test environments.
— Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a next-generation security technology that exploits the properties of quantum mechanics to enable two parties to generate an unconditionally secure shared secret key. QKD is novel because its security is based upon the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics and not on computational complexity. QKD systems are composed of… (More)
This work expands the notion of unresolvable uncertainties due to modeling issues in weakly predictive simulations to include unique implementation induced sources that originate from fundamental trade-offs associated with distributed virtual environments. We consider these trade-offs in terms of the Consistency, Availability, and Partition tolerance (CAP)… (More)
Choosing synchronization update parameters for live, virtual, constructive simulations is of particular importance when the simulation is supporting engineering test and evaluation events. Failure to choose these parameters appropriately can lead to substantial data quality problems. This work introduces the notion of plausibility limits for entity… (More)
