This thesis examines the problems that arise when military organisations and communities seek to exploit the opportunities provided by Network Enabled Capability for resource sharing and collaboration. The research shows that current methods of assessing security do not take account of the temporal nature of real communications with ad hoc and policy driven connections. It is contended that this results in an overly conservative approach, and that explicit consideration (and implementation) of non-persistent and alternative connectivity would provide better assessments on which to base risk decisions for 'fit for purpose' security, enabling more flexible and responsive security in rapidly changing environmental conditions.
