Abstract:For automated configuration, we develop a hierarchical two-phase methodology that supports portable configuration profiles and plug-n-play radio composition. We use a graph mapping model to convert the configuration profile into a deployable flowraph of waveform components. We show how capabilities and regulations can be reflected in configuration profiles, and how these profiles can be ported using XML templates. For configuration validation, we present a model for component-based certification of an SDR terminal. Methodologies for verifying certification of downloaded software, checking consistency of configuration, and securing the download channel are used to provide conformance validation for SDR terminal. For configuration attestation, we use trusted computing services to support a trusted configuration platform. We outline a secure boot sequence that allow an SDR terminal to ascertain its current configuration to a remote party in a robust manner.
