Paper Abstract

This paper analyzes secure data sharing outside its security domain with services, agencies, coalition partners and state/local authorities. There is a high demand for multiple levels of secure data at the tactical edge; however the threat level at that point is elevated compared to the enterprise environment. This paper investigates the requirements, technologies and risk mitigation techniques for securely sharing information with the tactical warfighter while protecting the data and the information systems from intruders and malware. The new CD Systems need to eliminate the stovepipe architectures and open the doors to share information across traditional and non-traditional domain boundaries.
