Secure Distributed Co-Simulation over Wide Area Networks
2007 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Modeling and simulation often require different tools for specialized purposes, which increase the motivation to use co-simulation. Since physical models often are describing enterprises¿ primary know-how, there is a need for a sound approach to securely perform modeling and simulation. This paper discusses different possibilities from a security perspective, with focus on secure distributed co-simulation over wide area networks (WANs), using transmission line modeling (TLM). An approach is outlined and performance is evaluated both in a simulated WAN environment, and for a real encrypted co-simulation between Sweden and Australia. It is concluded that several parameters affect the total simulation time, where especially the network delay (latency) has a significant impact.
