The TelSoc forum in mid-November (in Melbourne) is rapidly approaching. Government telecommunications sector security reform agenda makes this forum highly relevant to the future of the sector.

This paper discusses a Packet Storage Time (PST) routing attack  in relation to a Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) where an attacking node modifies its storage time and thereby does not forward packets to the intended recipient nodes. The paper presents an approach using Artificial Immune System based Danger signal (DS) and Pathogen Associated Molecular Pattern (PAMP) signal to identify a PST routing attack.

Pine Gap has been operational since its first satellite, Rhyolite 1 was launched on 19 June 1970. The facility has been instrumental in signals intelligence collection during the two Iraq wars, the Balkans conflicts, and Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent ?war on terror?. It?s presence in Australia has been a topic of debate for over 40 years.

The strategic advantage in Cyber security remains with the attacker rather than defender. To complicate matters, there is a trend towards a quite different set of threats which the current suite of countermeasures are not well designed to address.
