The internet of battlefield things (IoBT) is expected to be a major feature of future tactical wireless networks. Multiple challenges arise from the expected scale, heterogeneity, information sharing (in a joint or coalition environment), dynamics, and actions of sophisticated adversaries. The chapter will discuss these challenges in detail, and explore emerging directions which provide opportunities to enable a scalable, secure, and performant IoBT.
