Security and access control for data in transit remains a challenge for the deployment of battlefield tactical mobile networks (TMN). Attribute based encryption (ABE) is a promising solution that inherently satisfies many of the security and functional requirements of the military in this context. We present a novel ABE cryptographic algorithm with added capabilities for revocation, delegation, and federation. It can serve as the foundation for a security infrastructure that allows effective and efficient information sharing on the TMN.
