Abstract
The technical vision of the emerging net-centric Global Information Grid (GIG) encompasses support for high assurance authentication and multilevel security (MLS) as well as flexible, dynamic security policies. The GIG is intended to address the inefficient exchange of information in current military and intelligence operations that utilize a variety of specialized (so-called "stove-piped") systems. In this context, secure information access problems are exacerbated by the need to share information from networks at different classifications (e.g., Unclassified, Secret, and Top Secret) and within multinational coalitions in episodic, ad hoc situations. These challenges provide the impetus for the creation of the Monterey Security Architecture (MYSEA) Testbed. The purpose of this Testbed is to support research in high assurance multilevel security (MLS) [1, 2] and dynamic security, two areas that are critical to the realization of the GIG's assured information sharing vision.
