New Rules for Sharing Data with High Threat Networks

Read the Full Article

Defense and intelligence organizations regularly collect and share information between networks of varying security levels and threat profiles. They traditionally use cross-domain solution (CDS) technologies to protect transfers of and access to that information being shared. In the past few years, the threat profiles for these operations have significantly increased in sophistication and scope. In response, the U.S. government is formally labeling some information-sharing connection points as high threat networks (HTN), and defining CDS architecture upgrades to address the new HTN threat profiles.
