  • NATO/EAPC UNCLASSIFIED 2 WG Transformations  Revisions in WG structure occurred in 2004  Resulted in creation of the XML Management Services Working Group (XMLSWG) under the Information Services Sub Committee (ISSC) of the C3 Board  NATO and DISA MOU allowed XMLSWG (under the NATO C3 Board) to utilize a Namespace within the U.S. MDR for the last 3 years
  • NATO/EAPC UNCLASSIFIED 3 Issues Originally Raised to the ISSC  Status of developing an approach to identify NATO XML Services  “XML Services” is a very ambiguous and all encompassing term.  Should be defined perhaps as NATO XML Registry Services.  Not all of the “Big Picture” interrelationships are defined.  Operational Registries  Interrelationship with National Registries,  Federation of Registries  Role in NNEC  Primary Service is the Registry warehousing capability itself.
  • NATO/EAPC UNCLASSIFIED 4  Funding for 2008 work on Registry was not approved!  200k€ request not funded.  90K€ in NC3B POW is enough to continue NC3A support, but not development for the registry.  Funded development work will focus on the Program of Work funded by ACT for development of Operational concepts of the registry.  US Registry is NOT the final solution, but without funds, no development or procurement of a NATO Registry is possible!!!  ISSC Requested XMLSWG to develop a project plan for the future NATO Registry (NMRR) Background on Establishment and Operation of Registry
  • NATO/EAPC UNCLASSIFIED 5 Background on Establishment and Operation of Registry XMLSWG developed 4 Possible Courses of Action for ISSC Consideration: COA-1: Centralized NMRR COA-2: Distributed System COA-3: Federated without NATO instance but with a NATO Interface COA-4: Federated with NATO instance And NATO Interface Any COA may be: a) run by NATO b) run by Host Country c) run by contractor
  • NATO/EAPC UNCLASSIFIED 6 Background on Establishment and Operation of Registry (Continued) Technical Syndicate made the following recommendations: •Federation of multiple registries is required to efficiently support NNEC. •A NATO owned NMRR is required to support NATO COIs and achieve interoperability on NATO operations. •The hosting and administration of the NMRR can be accomplished by NATO, by Host Nation or by contractor.
