MilCAN-A Security

Objective: Add data/message encryption and node authentication to the MilCAN-A (MWG-MILA-001) protocol.
Challenge: Integrate encryption and authentication mechanisms in a very high-rate, very low packet size, broadcast and static pub/sub embedded network suitable for low-performance devices.

The purpose of this project is to identify a suitable way to add message payload encryption, node authentication, Sync Master authentication and validation.

Due to the nature of the underlying CAN bus characteristics it is considered that any security enhancements will not provide operational continuity and resilience against security attacks, but instead they will provide rapid detection of a security attack, intervention, and controlled shutdown/degradation/restart, to prevent malicious manipulation of the sub-system's operation.
