Research Institution
Warfighters need information that is both timely and trustworthy. New initiatives such as the Joint Battlespace Infosphere and Net-Centric Enterprise Services have the goal of getting "raw" information to the warfighter as quickly as possible. In order to assess the trustworthiness of such information, the warfighter must be able to automatically check its provenance. PMAF will provide an extensible standard for recording provenance in pedigrees as well as a set of tools for exploring pedigrees and assessing trustworthiness according to user-provided policies. In addition, PMAF will support the generation and checking of pedigree policies to help ensure that they accurately reflect stated user intentions.
