Juniper Networks Receive DoD Certification:

Juniper Networks Circuit-to-Packet Solutions Receive U.S. Defense Department Certification
Juniper Networks “Everything over IP” Solutions Help Government Agencies Migrate to High-Performance IP Networks

Juniper Networks, Inc. the leader in high-performance networking, is pleased to note that its Circuit-to-Packet (CTP) solutions have been tested and certified by the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) and are now on the Defense Switched Network (DSN) approved products list. Juniper Networks CTP solutions were the first on the market to successfully complete this rigorous testing and certification process in 2007, and remain among the industry’s very few CTP offerings to be certified by JITC for both interoperability and information assurance.

Circuit-to-packet solutions enable government agencies to migrate legacy circuit-based network applications (e.g., multiplexing transport networks, PBX systems) to higher-performance, packet-based Internet Protocol (IP) networks. The convergence of voice, data, video, web traffic and file sharing applications from circuit to IP networks is increasingly desired by government agencies as a means of concurrently managing explosive growth in network volume while improving network performance, security and cost efficiency.

Juniper Networks CTP solutions bridge the gap faced by government agencies in migrating to the efficiency and cost-savings enabled by these converged “Everything over IP” (EoIP) networks. Largely left out of the government’s evolution to EoIP is the large, installed base of circuit-based applications, such as time division multiplexing (TDM) and Private Branch Exchange (PBX) networks, serial encryption connections, and analog and digital radio systems networking. The synchronous transport requirements of these legacy systems cannot be addressed by packet-based networks.

Juniper Networks CTP products allow government agencies to quickly, reliably, and securely transport large, circuit-based applications across next-generation IP networks. The rigorous JITC certification of the interoperability and information assurance capabilities of Juniper Networks CTP solutions reflects their ability to deliver secure, field-proven flexibility, performance and reliability that federal government applications require.

JITC interoperability testing and certification are required by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) for all IT equipment that attaches to U.S. defense voice networks. As part of JITC certification, the Defense Security Accreditation Working Group (DSAWG) grants the U.S. military services’ approval for connecting networking technologies to the DoD Global Information Grid (GIG), a series of interconnected computer networks used to securely transmit information by packet switching over TCP/IP protocols.

The Juniper Networks CTP products receiving JITC certification include the CTP1000 Series and CTP2000 Series, with Software Release 4.3R2 and CTPView Version 2.2, a graphical user interface providing detailed performance reports of real-time and historic network performance. Juniper Networks CTP solutions offer a range of size, port capacity, and redundancy options and are IPv6 compliant.

Products on this list have received Joint Interoperability Certification (JIC) and Information Assurance Accreditation (IA) in accordance with the Department of Defense Instruction DoDI 8100.3.

E-7.3 Functionality Test Procedures. The first step in conducting a
vulnerability test is to perform a functionality check. Testing the SUT’s functionality
ensures that the product operates as intended in a fielded environment. Perform the
functionality test at the beginning of Phase II testing to ensure that all services and
applications are functioning and communicating correctly. Functionality testing varies
from system to system and targets the basic operational functions. It is not meant to be
a substitute for an interoperability test.
Some products, such as CPE, rely on external systems to exercise their
capabilities. For example, a secure modem solution is inactive until an external switch
initiates a call. In this case, the external switch is outside the scope of the IA test.
However, the tester and vendor must ensure the external switch is operational to
perform IPV testing on the secure modem solution. Functionality tests are performed
before Phase II testing begins, and then again at the conclusion of Phase II testing.
Monitor IP traffic during the functionality test and save the results for further evaluation,
if necessary. The objective is to ensure that the SUT is functionally operational before
Phase II IPV testing commences.
The IPV testing should be performed from the external or outside perspective
and from the internal or inside perspective. An inside perspective is analogous to what
a “trusted insider” or an employee has, or the same as an attacker would have once
perimeter defenses (firewalls) are breached. An outside perspective is analogous to the
same perspective someone would have on the Internet, looking in at the system. The
attacker would have the perspective of an “untrusted outsider” and would be looking in
at the product. The following DoDI 8500.2 IA Controls apply to all the IPV testing
procedures: DCPP-1, ECVI-1, ECTM-2, VIVM-1, and ECMT-1.
E-7.4 Internet Protocol Interface Identification. Verify operational and identify
all IP interfaces.
E-7.5 Lines. If the SUT supports lines, the following manual calls are
attempted: Analog to Analog, IP to IP, Analog to IP, and IP to Analog. Verify that all
test calls can be completed successfully.
E-7.6 Trunks. If the SUT supports trunks, the following manual calls are
attempted: Analog over trunk and IP over trunk. Verify that all test calls can be
completed successfully.
E-7.7 Internet Protocol Handsets. All IP handsets are identified and the
protocols used identified (e.g., Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and Simple Client
Control Protocol (SCCP)).
E-8.1 Test Perspectives. The IPV and PA testing are performed from an
external and internal perspective. An external perspective is what someone on the
Internet, DISA Network, or Unclassified-But-Sensitive Internet Protocol Router Network
(NIPRNet) would see from outside the network (i.e., an attacker looking in at the
network’s outer perimeter defenses, such as a firewall and/or router with an ACL). An
internal perspective is what someone would see from inside the system (i.e., a trusted
employee, a client user, or an attacker who has breached the firewalls). This method of
testing can be found in section 3 of the NIST Special Publication 800-42, Guideline on
Network Security Testing. The following DoDI 8500.2 IA Controls apply to all of the IPV
testing procedures: DCPP-1, ECVI-1, ECTM-2, VIVM-1, and ECMT-1.
E-8.2 Host Discovery. Detecting all possible hosts in use by the SUT and their
corresponding IP address information is the first step in the technical evaluation.
Although the product vendor provides the IP address information, the test team ensures
that there are no other undocumented IP-routable addresses. In addition to physical
host network adapters, an IP address can be discovered from a variety of sources.
Such sources include virtual Ethernet adapters, virtual machine addresses, and hostbased
network addresses, which could all create possible vulnerabilities in the SUT.
The following are general techniques that are used to discover available hosts, an IP
address, or any other IP-routable end-points.
E-8.3 Ping Sweep. A general Packet Internet Groper (Ping) sweep determines
what hosts are available via the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) message.

This is generally an ICMP echo request (type Cool to elicit an ICMP echo reply (type 0)
from a host.
Table E-18 shows the Ping sweep test procedures, which use the following
testing components: a laptop with a port scanning application installed, a laptop
assigned with an IP address compliant with the test environment, and an Ethernet hub.
Table E-18. Ping Sweep Test Procedures
Procedure Results
Configure IP vulnerability testing laptop.
Ethernet connection:
An Ethernet port on the SUT, with its associated IP address,
should be available for test purposes. The port location should be
such that access to the largest number of IP addresses within the
solution is possible. Use of an Ethernet hub is the preferred
method of connection.
The IP test laptop and the IP interfaces under test are
cabled to the Ethernet hub.
Assign IP address:
An IP address and Subnet mask will be assigned to the laptop NIC
that is within the range being used by the SUT.
The IP test laptop is configured with an IP address that
is included within the Subnet range of the SUT. The
use of the “Ping” command verifies that the test laptop
can communicate with the SUT.
Host Discovery:
A general ICMP (Ping) sweep of the entire subnet will be
conducted to discover any devices within the SUT that respond to
an ICMP.
The following is an example of a ping sweep of a standard class C
IP address range using NMAP:
#NMAP –sP –n
The results returned by the ICMP Ping sweep will
include all available hosts within the subnet.
Eliminate “out of bounds” components:
Items such as gateways, network elements, or end-points that are
outside the IA test boundary will be removed from the discovery
findings and a list of discovered hosts will be established.
An evaluation of the returned results will eliminate all
components that are considered “out of the test
boundary” for the SUT.

IP Internet Protocol
NIC Network Interface Card
NMAP Networked Messaging Application Protocol
Ping Packet Internet Groper
SUT System Under Test
E-8.4 Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Sweep. A TCP sweep provides
insight into available hosts when the ICMP is disabled. A TCP sweep attempts to make
TCP connections to a host range on a specified port list. In the process of the TCP
sweep, a “three-way handshake” happens. The originator sends an initial packet called
a “synchronize” to establish communication and “synchronize” sequence numbers in
counting bytes of data that will be exchanged. The destination then sends a
“SYN/ACK,” which again “synchronizes” his byte count with the originator and
acknowledges the initial packet. The originator then returns an “ACK,” which
acknowledges the packet the destination just sent to him. The connection is now
“OPEN,” and ongoing communication between the originator and the destination are
permitted until one of them issues a FINish (FIN) packet or a Reset (RST) packet, or the
connection times out. The “three-way handshake” establishes the communication.
By providing a list of possible ports that might be available within a system or
product, the TCP connections are able to determine which hosts are up and available.

Common ports used in TCP sweeps include, but are not limited to, 21, 22, 23, 25, 54,
80, 137, 139, 443, and 445. Table E-19 shows the TCP sweep test procedures, which
use the following components: a laptop with a port scanning application installed, a
laptop assigned with an IP address compliant with the test environment, and an
Ethernet hub.
Table E-19. TCP Sweep Test Procedures
Procedure Results
Host Discovery:
A TCP sweep of the IP address space will be conducted to discover
devices that are not responding to ICMP or might be using hostbased
firewalls or IDSs.
The following is an example of a TCP ping sweep (System Ping) of a
standard class C IP address range using NMAP:
# NMAP –PS 21,22,23,25,53,80,137,139,443,445, and 2049
The results returned by the TCP sweep will
include all available hosts within the subnet that
did not respond to the ping sweep.
Eliminate “out of bounds” components:
The list of hosts that responds to this sweep will be compared to the
list of hosts defined in the ICMP sweep and any newly discovered
host will be added to the list of known hosts.
An evaluation of the returned results will eliminate
all components that are considered “out of
bounds” for this test.
Additional Hosts:
At this point, if the test team is satisfied that all the hosts are
discovered, they could move to traffic analysis or they could use ACK
scans, ARP scans, or alternate ICMP scans using different ICMP
Any additional hosts discovered should be
confirmed to be part of the SUT.
ACK Acknowledge
ARP Address Resolution Protocol
ICMP Internet Control Message Protocol
IDS Intrusion Detection System
IP Internet Protocol
NMAP Networked Messaging Application Protocol
SUT System Under Test
TCP Transmission Control Protocol
E-8.5 Traffic Analysis. Traffic analysis allows the test team to determine all the
hosts that the SUT uses in an operational environment. Accessing the network traffic in
transit provides an in-depth look at how information flows within the application and can
also be helpful in revealing hosts that are part of the communications process. This
process may require placing a network hub within the environment, network traffic flow,
or possibly in the configuration of a mirror port on an existing network element. Table
E-20 shows the traffic analysis test procedures, which use the following testing
components: a laptop with a port scanning application installed, a laptop assigned with
an IP address compliant with the test environment, and an Ethernet hub.

Table E-20. Traffic Analysis Test Procedures
Procedure Results
Initialize Traffic Sniffer:
A network analyzer such as WireShark (Ethereal) or tcpdump would be
enabled to view all the network traffic and ensure that data was not traveling to
devices that were not detected by the scanning and sweeping methods.
Confirm that all network traffic being
generated and passed is between
components of the System Under Test
Additional Hosts:
If any new hosts are discovered during the traffic analysis phase of testing, they
will be added to the list of auditable end-points, generally in a text file for the
Phase II evaluation.
Any additional hosts discovered
should be confirmed to be part of the
System Under Test.
E-8.6 Port Enumeration. Port enumeration provides a list of services or
applications running on the host and gives the tester a good indication of what operating
system might be present on the end-point. When all the hosts in use by the SUT are
determined, testers begin the initial evaluation of individual hosts. Each host is
individually inspected for all available information, such as running services, operating
system versions, and other applications. Information provided by investigating each
device in depth helps determine how susceptible an individual component of the SUT
might be to a potential attack.
Enumeration, provided by port scanning of each host, provides a detailed list of
which ports are open, closed, or filtered on a specified host. Port scans are conducted
in a multitude of varieties using many different protocols, packet flags, and techniques.
These various scans can yield different results in different situations, depending on the
configurations and protections of each host. Additional Open Source Security Testing
Methodology Manual (OSSTMM) strategies are in Appendices B and E.
Table E-21 shows the port enumeration test procedures, which use the following
testing components: a laptop with a port scanning application installed, an assigned IP
address compliant with the test environment, and an Ethernet hub.


The Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 8500.1 “Information Assurance (IA),”
24 October 2002, established the DoD policies for IA and directed that all information
technology be IA tested and certified before connection to the Defense Information
System Network (DISN). The DoD Instruction 8100.3, “Department of Defense Voice
Networks,” 16 January 2004, establishes the IA policy for DoD Voice Networks,
including the Defense Switched Network (DSN). The DSN Single Systems Manager
(SSM) is responsible for providing DSN IA test results to the DISN Designated
Approving Authorities in order to be granted IA certification and accreditation. The DSN
SSM has designated the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) as the responsible
organization for DSN IA testing.

The JITC DSN IA Test Team (IATT) supports IA testing by determining
compliance with the Security Technical Implementation Guidelines, IA Vulnerability
Management announcements (e.g., alerts, bulletins, and technical guidance), and
additional IA requirements. In addition, the IATT scans for Internet Protocol
Vulnerabilities to determine residual risks and threat levels of the existing security
implementations and any security deficiencies on the network.

Upon completion of the IA assessment, the IATT analyzes data collected and
presents the test findings in an “IA Assessment Findings and Mitigations Report.” The
report contains security vulnerabilities found on the system during the test. The report
is emailed to the vendor so they may input their mitigation strategies for the security
vulnerabilities found. The assessment report, including the vendor’s mitigation
strategies is submitted to the Unified Capabilities Connection Office and the Defense
Information Systems Agency (DISA) Field Security Office (FSO) for comment. The FSO
will write a Certification and Accreditation letter to the DISN Security Accreditation
Working Group (DSAWG). The final assessment report is briefed to the DSAWG in the
form of a PowerPoint presentation. The DSAWG will decide whether to place the
vendor’s solution on the DSN Approved Products List, based on the findings and

data, and dial-up video teleconference (VTC) for End-to-End command
use and DOD authorized C2 and non-C2 users in accordance with (IAW)
national security directives. Non-secure dial-up voice (telephone) service is the
system's principal service. (See references a and b)

CJCSI 6215.01C
9 November 2007

b. The DRSN is a secure C2 system and is a key component of the DOD
global secure voice services. The DRSN supports secure voice and secure
conferencing requirements of the President, Secretary of Defense, Chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, DOD components, and select federal agencies in
peacetime, crisis situations, and wartime. It is a separate, secure switched
network that is considered part of the DISN. Three sub-services provide the
foundation for the DOD secure voice services: the DRSN, the secure telephone
unit-III/secure terminal equipment (STU-III/STE) and other secure
communications interoperability protocol (SCIP) equipment that provide Endto-
End encryption over the DSN, and other secure wireless products. (See
references c and d)

c. The DISN is an integrated network, centrally managed and configured,
to provide telecommunications services for all DOD activities.
This information
transfer service is designed to provide dedicated point-to-point; point-tomultipoint;
and switched voice, data, imagery, and VTC services in support of
national defense C3I decision support requirements (references e and oo). For
GIG, Wide and Metropolitan Area Networking (WAN, MAN), use of the DISN is
mandatory unless granted a waiver from the GIG Waiver Panel (reference hh).
The DISN provides RTS via its circuit switched and IP router networks. These
networks include, but are not limited to: the DSN, DRSN, DISN, and the DVS
infrastructure, the DISN WAN to include the DISN SDN and access to those
SDN, Teleport, SIPRNET, and NIPRNET. The DISN’s underlying infrastructure
is composed of three major segments or blocks IAW CJCSI 6211.02B
reference hh):

(1) The sustaining base (i.e., base, post, camp or station and
Service Enterprise Networks) command, control, communications, computers
and intelligence (C4I) infrastructure will interface with the long-haul network to
support the deployed warfighter. The sustaining base segment is primarily the
responsibility of the Services.

(2) The long-haul telecommunications infrastructure, which includes
the communication systems and services between the fixed environment and
the deployed joint task force (JTF) and/or coalition task force (CTF) warfighter.
The long-haul telecommunications infrastructure segment is primarily
responsibility of DISA.

(3) The deployed warfighter and associated combatant commander
telecommunications infrastructures supporting the JTF or CTF. The deployed
warfighter and associated combatant command telecommunications
infrastructure is primarily the responsibility of Services.

For the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff:




1. Defense Information System Network (DISN) Background
a. The DISN is a composite of DOD-owned and leased
telecommunications subsystems and networks. It is DOD’s worldwide
enterprise-level telecommunications infrastructure providing end-to-end
information transfer in support of military operations. The DISN
facilitates information resource management and supports national
security as well as DOD needs. As a critical portion of the GIG, the DISN
furnishes network services to DOD installations and deployed forces.
Those services include voice, data, video, messaging, and other unified
capabilities along with ancillary enterprise services such as directories.
The DISN has three segments: sustaining base, long-haul, and deployed.
(1) The sustaining base infrastructure (i.e., base, post, camp or
station, and Service enterprise enclaves) interfaces with the long-haul
infrastructure to support strategic/fixed environment user
telecommunications requirements. The sustaining base segment is
primarily the responsibility of the CC/S/A.
(2) The long-haul telecommunications infrastructure and its
associated services are the responsibility of the DISA.
(3) The deployed warfighter and associated combatant commander
telecommunications infrastructures support the Joint Task Force and/or
Combined Task Force. The combatant command and subordinate
Service components have primary responsibility for the deployed
warfighter and associated combatant command telecommunications
infrastructure within the theater.
b. The DISN provides the GIG transfer infrastructure by connecting
separate CC/S/A and field activity ISs into a DOD enterprise-wide
network to meet common-user and special purpose information transfer
c. DISN information transfer facilities support secure transport
requirements for subnetworks such as the Defense Switched Network
(DSN), Defense Red Switch Network (DRSN), Non-Secure Internet
Protocol Router Network (NIPRNET),2 SIPRNET, DISN Video Services
2 Based on DOD dictionary and JP 1-02 (reference g). Other uses of the acronym include
Unclassified But Sensitive Internet Protocol Router Network (DOD IT Portfolio Registry) and Non-
Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (DODI 8500.2 (reference k)).

Intelligent Optical Switching at the DISA Network Core
The Global Information Grid-Bandwidth Expansion (GIG-BE) Project

Some Communications Really Are Mission-Critical

When the US Department of Defense (DoD) decided they needed a super-high-speed network, they soon realized the best course of action was to build their own. The result –
the Global Information Grid-Bandwidth Expansion (GIG-BE) project – formed a state-of-the-art network foundation for DoD communications, under the jurisdiction of their Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).
GIG-BE created a robust, IP-based network where bandwidth is no longer a constraint and vast quantities of information can be distributed, analyzed, and shared in a more efficient and effective manner. The new network ensures secure, high bandwidth capability over a physically diverse, optical mesh architecture that interconnects key intelligence, command, and operational locations throughout the continental United States (CONUS), Pacific, and European Theaters.
We’re proud to say that Sycamore intelligent optical switching technology plays a pivotal role in providing connectivity for one of the world’s most advanced and technically innovative networks.

About DISA

The GIG-BE project is a highly strategic initiative of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) within the US Department of Defense (DoD). DISA is a combat support agency responsible for planning, engineering, acquiring, fielding, and supporting global net-centric solutions and operating the Global Information Grid to serve the needs of the President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Combatant Commanders, and other DoD Components under all conditions of peace and war.

DISA is the preferred provider of Global Net-Centric Solutions for the Nation’s warfighters and all those who support them in defense of the Nation. For more information, visit

Why the World’s Best Consistently Choose Sycamore

After rigorous testing of the leading optical switch products, DISA and SAIC concluded that the Sycamore switch represented the best technical solution, based on their evaluation criteria:

- Operationally proven product reliability
- Advanced networking software intelligence
- Industry-leading switch capacity and system scalability
- Support for diverse protection schemes
- Advanced network emulation and design tools

GIG-BE was operational by year-end 2005 and, after follow-on evaluation, accredited to support very high-speed traffic classified up to and including Top Secret. Achieving DISA’s vision of “a color to every base” entailed physically diverse network access and substantial upgrades to the optical backbone. GIG-BE met this objective in a state-of-the-art switched optical network with 10 Gbps OC-192 or faster connections serving 85 sites throughout the world.

The ultimate goal is to bring the efforts of the military, the intelligence community, and other coalition forces together to ensure US forces get the information they need to complete a mission in as near real-time as possible. Taking the next step in that direction, the GIG-BE team is planning for the transformation and optimization of DISN subsystems (voice, data, video). They intend to provide converged services by the end of the decade. It’s a safe bet they will.
