COTS Approach to Information Security
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The commercial world has tended to focus on the performance of computer systems, and not always on their abilities to control information access. Many of the products and systems being developed today have wider and easier access to their data as their main goal. The precepts behind the World-Wide Web, Open Systems Architecture, and the Free Software Foundation are based on the desire to provide free, easy access to the information they control. It is not surprising, then, to find that these computer systems and architectures have real problems when it comes to security. As a result of the demand for security solutions in the commercial world, commercial solutions have become an a viable alternative for todays military systems. This propsed effort will utilize submarine combat system experts along with commercial security solutions to derive a solid solution for security requirements.
