The purpose of this thesis is to examine the Department of the Navy ADP system accreditation process as it relates to shipboard microcomputers. The primary reference document, OPNAVINST 5239. 1A, is the Department of the 4avy Automatic Data Processing Security Program instruction, which details the accreditation process. The accreditation process and limitations of the instruction are discussed. An alternative method for determining ADP systems safeguards, the base- Line security safeguard model used by the U.S. Geological Survey, is evaluated to determine its applicability in the shipboard microcomputer environment. Additionally, the Nelson/DOD model, which uses cost and proved effectiveness as metrics to select countermeasures, is developed and discussed. This thesis concludes that a more cost effective means of selecting countermeasures is needed and recom- mends that the Nelson/DOD model be adopted to accomplish this goal. Suggested further research involves creating a Decision Support System (DSS) by automating the Nelson/DOD model.
