Recent events, including the horrific terrorist attacks on the United States, serve to highlight the need for improved intelligence and collection management. Collaboration tools are becoming increasingly important to the DoD, Intelligence Community (IC),law enforcement agencies and others that are involved with our national security. Many agencies and services each have their own private, secure networks, which creates barriers to sharing information. The Air Force ISSE Guard application providesmulti-level secure communications between different networks, but currently only supports email and file transfer mechanisms. These transports do not support real-time traffic that is generated by collaborative applications. New transport mechanisms andprotocols are needed to enable IC users and others to effectively collaborate.Trident Systems proposes to design and develop the Collaboration Guard (CG) to provide multi-level secure collaboration. The CG is based up the ISSE Guard platform. The CG implementation will leverage the planned ISSE Guard socket-based communicationenhancements. To minimize risk and reduce development time, Trident Systems is teaming with the ISSE Guard contractor to implement this capability.
