Research Institution
This project will investigate the availability, sufficiency and clarity of guidance in security directives to design 8 rule based Classification and Sanitization Expert System (CASES). Consistent with such guidance a system will be designed that automatically classifies cryptologic raw data consistent with classification guides for both the sensor system and the signal of interest and then automatically and reliably invokes sanitization procedures uniquely appropriate to the sensor system, signal of interest and specific requirements for Essential Elements of Information EEI. The system will automatically and reliably manage security classification labels, data packet definitions and data integrity assurance procedures and automatically implements the procedures required to control the access to the sanitized information by processing systems not authorized to operate at the SCI level. Based on the Navy\'s current plans for Surface Cryptologic Systems the project will also investigate and document at least one alternative for implementing the expert system module in OUTBOARD, COMBAT DF, BGPHES, CCSC (or equivalent NTCS-A Workstation), CCSS and future systems using the Common Cryptologic Workstation (CCW).
