  • 10. NCOIC and the Cyberspace Ecosystem  NCOIC considers Interaction of People, Processes, and Technology in a Net-Centric Environment  Cyber Security considerations are critical to the Processes People successful use of Cyberspace in society!  Classic Information Assurance factors: (for Systems, Services, Networks, Information, etc. “Assured” at some Level of Trust) Technology  Assured Availability  Assured Integrity  Assured Authentication (& Identity Management)  Assured Confidentiality (& Authorization & Access Control)  Assured Non-Repudiation (& Forensic Audit Trails)  Security Management (People, Technology, Operations)  Multiple National Policies and Legal Constraints (many conflict!)  Many Domain-Specific needs and difference in priorities/emphasis!  Growing concern regarding dependence on Cyberspace with corresponding vulnerability to attack, catastrophe, etc. Interoperability of Global Cyber Security implementations across joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational industrial & commercial operations is key!
  • 11. Traditional Security Mechanisms Not Sufficient for Cyber Security  Some Traditional Security Mechanisms vs. Cyber Security Needs:  ―Need to Know‖ vs. ―Need to Share‖  Point-to-Point Networks vs. Global Internet  Risk Adverse vs. Managed Risk  Tightly-coupled Systems/Networks vs. SOA / Cloud Computing Public and/or Private Clouds providing Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service  Systems vs. System-of-Systems vs. Federation-of-Systems Controlled vs. ad hoc composition and interaction  Key NCOIC Technical Topic at June and September Plenaries: Authentication Methodologies: Current and Future (with emphasis on Internet)  Common & Domain-Specific Needs (to become SCOPE Dimensions)  Key Figures of Merit / Metrics (to become NCAT evaluation criteria)  Options for Solutions (to support Trade Studies and eventually NIF Patterns)  Role of Authentication in Identity Management on the Internet

  • 14. Why NCOIC is Good for Business  Provides direct access to broad global customer base at the highest level, and entrée to others through NCOIC relationships  Provides access to potential partners, suppliers and competitors for NCO business  Illustrates global thought leadership & consensus with international stakeholders on NCO/NEC – No compromise of national or alliance interests  Industry consensus on NCO standards beneath the application layer reduces cost, provides for more efficient design and effective partnering  Certification program will validate interoperability of systems within defined parameters ―Like organizations that pioneered the Internet, NCOIC sponsors innovative thought, conducts critical analyses, and demonstrates how a net-centric environment can bring interoperability to a broad range of sectors. In this way, NCOIC helps member companies to find new markets, evaluate their unique needs and explore ways to drive interoperability into those markets.‖ Terry Morgan, Cisco.
  • 15. Global Stakeholders CDR Fred van Ettinger, (NLD N) C2 Centre of Excellence, signs Letter of Agreement with NCOIC Members speak with Carlo Magrassi, Members develop a SCOPE workshop for European Defence Agency Australian Department of Defence with Rapid Armaments Director Prototyping Development & Evaluation organization  “The Australian Department of Defence is a keen supporter of NCOIC, its principles and tools. We aim to apply NCOIC‘s products to our acquisition process to better define interoperability requirements and improve through-life systems integration prospects.‖ John McGarry, Australian Air Commodore.  "We have used NCOIC‘s NCAT tool to assess levels of interoperability during NATO Response Force exercises. Our Centre of Excellence found the tool to be very useful in establishing the level of interoperability." Commander Fred van Ettinger, Section Head of the Multi National Command and Control Centre of Excellence.  “NCOIC has four characteristics which make it unique. The organization is solely dedicated to network-centric operations and interoperability; its membership stimulates discussions about global interoperability; it serves as a ‗vendor neutral‘ forum, and it has a cadre of industry‘s top technical experts who are available to do its work.‖ Jack Zavin, U.S. Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense, Networks and Information Integration.
  • 16. Benefits of Membership  ―From NCOIC members and senior government advisors, we continue to learn how to improve the world we know today. And we are overwhelmed with opportunities to see the way network- centric operations can shape the future.‖ USAF Lt.Gen. (Ret.) Harry Raduege, Chairman of the Deloitte Center for Cyber Innovation.  ―Consortium leaders gain insight about the direction of a customer‘s vision and the potential network-centric business opportunity,‖ he says. ―They‘re in a better position to see the future, take a hand in shaping it and place their company‘s bets on new solutions, more precisely.‖ Terry Morgan, Cisco.  ―People who operate in one market segment adopt a model about how the world works--that can lead to a mental rut. But NCOIC members come from many sectors and have opinions that don‘t always agree with your own. Within the context of such a collaborative environment, diverse thinking can be a catalyst for innovation.‖ Hans Polzer, Senior Fellow, Lockheed Martin.  ―Achieving interoperability among systems is huge work and there are national political barriers. When NCOIC members work together as transnational companies these obstacles diminish— even though the companies can only discuss non-sensitive issues— but they can focus on real technical difficulties. NCOIC is then by far the best forum for ongoing conversations about interoperability. Outside this forum, when national customers have more influence, such collaboration would be much more difficult.‖ Dr. Claude Roche, EADS Defence & Security and NCOIC Executive Council member.  ―We are a global society and the next series of potential problems—civil wars, scarce water, food shortages, pandemics, cyber warfare—cannot be resolved by one nation. To avoid catastrophic outcomes our only chance is to cooperate. We have incredible motivation to work together and NCOIC is making significant contributions to the technological foundation that will help nations collaborate.‖ Brett Biddington, Cisco Systems’Global Government Solutions Group.

  • 20. NCOIC Tools & Processes Allow for Evaluation & Measurement Over the Lifecycle of systems ―Although the applications domain is very diverse, integration problems across applications are similar. It‘s interesting that we see a larger field of applications in NCOIC than we do, for instance, within the e- Government sector. If we can learn from the experience of developers in diverse sectors and apply it to the net-centric environment, that can open doors to new markets such as defense, homeland security and emergency response.‖ Linda Strick, Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems. ―NCOIC‘s delicate alchemy fosters true collaboration among global companies that are often fierce business competitors. Their efforts to resolve customers‘ interoperability issues recently resulted in the publication of NCOIC‘s Interoperability Framework, a set of guiding principles for developers of network-centric systems, products and services.‖ Nicholas Berthet, Thales Battlespace Transformation Centre.

  • 22. Key Messages  NCOIC participation provides your business leaders direct personal contact with the key global leaders of your customer base in an information sharing environmen  NCOIC is analyzing mission threads and requirements to identify the standards and patterns required for mission execution. Members create opportunities to drive these standards and obtain early implementation insights.  NCOIC is engaging key government and civilian customers in identifying standards. Members interact with customers in a non-procurement setting, shaping requirements.  NCOIC is providing an architectural framework which allows COTS standards to be used in NCO. This influence will guide how standards will be used in future operations. Those who understand and help guide this framework will be better equipped to consult on NCO utilization.  NCOIC assessment & analysis tools -- NCAT™ and SCOPE -- allow customers to make accurate decisions on how to employ NCO capabilities.
