It is widely believed that the general problem of horizontal integration among US Government agencies has not been adequately solved to date. Many barriers exist that have historically resisted a viable solution, including the “stove pipe” architectures of various agencies, the lack of overarching and compatible security policies, new needs for wider dissemination of information extending beyond the typical DoD boundaries, and the lack of a new information sharing paradigm that can address the technical complexities inherent in the horizontal communication among local, state, and federal government agencies. The proposed solution described herein puts forth a new information sharing paradigm, adapting a number of existing security and digital rights technologies with proprietary elements to accomplish fine-grained control and tracking of sensitive digital assets. Moreover, we propose to adapt the NSA-sponsored Content Based Information Security cryptographic algorithms to provide cross-platform, multi-level security capability to our initial architecture.
