Research Institution
3 Sigma Research proposes an innovative approach to develop an enterprise-wide software solution to security classification re-grading that facilitates secure information assurance in a Global Information Grid (GIG) framework. Our Packaged ONtology Certificate (PONC) Investigation (PONC-I) explores the concept for an enterprise information architecture that makes use of a PONC to extend automated, appropriate, “need-to-know” access controls all the way to the edge of the enterprise. Our innovative approach considers the whole enterprise combining the power of ontology-based reasoning components in scalable information assurance architecture to address automated information security re-grading needs in a dynamic operational environment. The approach also addresses the problems involved in migrating data in existing repositories to take advantage of our concept. The result of our research provides the groundwork for moving current dynamic edge resources into a secure, dynamic, and robust network-centric environment to support the warfighter.
