Summary

This chapter discusses three interface control document (ICD)s, namely, ICD I, ICD V, and ICD X. It addresses the cipher text internet protocol (IP) layer, in regard to how it relates to the plain text IP layer in areas such as quality of service (QoS). It is important to emphasize the definition of the plain text IP layer as it relates to the tactical edge. Measurement based resource management (MBRM) relies on user packets to collect statistics about the state of the encrypted core. ICD I, which defines the interface adhered to by user traffic flow between the plain text IP layer and high assurance IP encryptor (HAIPE). ICD V covers a number of protocols that are needed for the plain text IP layer peer-to-peer communications. ICD X, which defines cross layer signaling between the plain text IP layer and cipher text IP layer through the HAIPE domain guard.
