Abstract: An EU Future Internet Engineering project currently underway in Poland defines three parallel internets (PIs). The emerging IIP system (IIPS, abbreviating the project's Polish name), has a four-level architecture, with level 2 responsible for creation of virtual resources of the PIs. This paper proposes a three-tier security architecture to address level 2 threats of unauthorised traffic injection and IIPS traffic manipulation or forging. It is argued that the measures to be taken differ in nature from those ensuring classical security attributes. A combination of hard- and soft-security mechanisms produces node reputation and trust metrics, which permits to eliminate or ostracise misbehaving nodes. Experiments carried out in a small-scale IIPS testbed are briefly discussed.
