Interoperability versus Cyber Security/Information Assurance?

  1. 1. Interoperability versus Cyber Security/Information Assurance? Mr. Jack Zavin Advisor Council Member, NCOIC Member Executive Representative, & Vice Chair Net Centric Attributes Functional Team 11 June 2010 Approved for Public Release Distribution Unlimited NCOIC-DefDailyCyber-JZ20100611rev1
  2. 2. Net Centric Environment (NCE): Objective, Goals & Description  Objective: All users, whether known or unanticipated, are able to easily discover, access, trust, and use the data/information that supports their business/mission objectives unconstrained by their location or time of day.  Goals: – Evolve & Populate the NCE – Protect & Defend the NCE – Manage & Operate the NCE  The NCE is implemented with evolving balanced & synchronized sets of Process, Organization, People, Information & Materiel (POPIM) Solutions.  Interoperability whether in an NCE or not is more than just the technical exchange of information rather it is composed of evolvable POPIM Solutions Sets. Interoperability must be synergized with Information Assurance to assure obtaining the best of both.

Net Centric Environment: Functional Performers Managers/Operators** IA* IA Info Producers/publishers** Information Services IA Providers IA Users/Consumers** Computing Resource Providers IA Information Transport Providers IA • Behavior and relationship characteristics include: Quality of Service; Quality of Protection; Addressing; Tagging of content & roles/Identities; • Information Forms include voice, video, images, text, graphics…. * IA = Information Assurance – protecting & defending the information and information technology. ** Includes Software Applications whether hosted locally or by a computing resource provider.
