Pre-publication Review

Chief Information Officer

Pre-publication Review

The purpose of pre-publication review is to prevent unauthorized disclosure of information and ensure the mission of the ODNI and the foreign relations and security of the United States are not adversely affected by public disclosure.

All information meant to be made available in a public forum must be submitted for review prior to release.

The obligation applies to current and former ODNI staff, including cadre, detailees, and contractors, who have access to classified information. There are two categories of material that must be reviewed:

Non-Official: Anything published or presented in your personal capacity. Examples include resumes, books, op-eds, personal blogs

Official: Anything created as part of your official duties on behalf of the ODNI. Examples include speeches, newsletters, official web pages, outreach documents, brochures.

The Pre-Pub Team coordinates with other IC agencies, as appropriate, and provides a single consolidated response to the requester.

The Review Process

1. Create material using:

    • UNCLASSIFIED sources only
    • No anonymous sources
    • Source citations within the document (not a list at the end)


2. For official publication or presentation, ensure your management chain has concurred, and any internal component review process for substance has been completed.

3. Submit your request via email for Pre-Pub Review (you will receive an automatic reply confirming your request). When doing so be sure to:

    • Include any previous review approvals you have received for your submission (i.e., from ODNI Pre-Pub or other Agency Pre-Pub group)
    • Provide all sourcing for cited materials that are not easily accessible via the Internet (failure to include all source material may delay your request)

4. Protect the publication from release until approved from the ODNI Pre-Pub Team. In other words, do not send to editors or academics for peer reviews until the review is complete.

5. Upon approval from ODNI Pre-Pub, you are cleared to and publish or present.

Access Rights and Handling

Chief Information Officer

IC CIO Enterprise Integration & Architecture

Access Rights and Handling

Overview

This XML Data Encoding Specification for Access Rights and Handling (ARH.XML) defines detailed implementation guidance for using Extensible Markup Language (XML) to encode ARH data.

Information sharing within the national intelligence enterprise will increasingly rely on information assurance metadata (including enterprise data headers) to allow interagency access control, automated exchanges, and appropriate protection of shared intelligence. A structured, verifiable representation of security metadata bound to the intelligence data is required in order for the enterprise to become inherently "smarter" about the information flowing in and around it. Such a representation, when implemented with other data formats, improved user interfaces, and data processing utilities, can provide part of a larger, robust information assurance infrastructure capable of automating some of the management and exchange decisions today being performed by human beings.

 
The Intelligence Community (IC) has standardized the various classification and control markings established for information sharing within the Information Security Markings (ISM) and Need-To-Know (NTK) XML specifications of the Intelligence Community Enterprise Architecture (ICEA) Data Standards. The IC Access Requirements and Handling XML specification combines elements of the ISM and NTK specifications and extends them to access rights management and handling needs.

IC-Enterprise Data Header

Overview

This XML Data Encoding Specification for Enterprise Data Header (EDH.XML) defines detailed implementation guidance for using Extensible Markup Language (XML) to encode EDH data.
 

Information sharing within the national intelligence enterprise will increasingly rely on information assurance metadata (including enterprise data headers) to allow interagency access control, automated exchanges, and appropriate protection of shared intelligence. A structured, verifiable representation of security metadata bound to the intelligence data is required in order for the enterprise to become inherently "smarter" about the information flowing in and around it. Such a representation, when implemented with other data formats, improved user interfaces, and data processing utilities, can provide part of a larger, robust information assurance infrastructure capable of automating some of the management and exchange decisions today being performed by human beings.


The Intelligence Community (IC) has standardized the various classification and control markings established for information sharing within the Information Security Markings (ISM), Need-To-Know (NTK), and Access Rights and Handling (ARH) XML specifications of the Intelligence Community Enterprise Architecture (ICEA) Data Standards. The IC Enterprise Data Header XML specification further expands on this body of work, adapting and extending it as necessary to meet mission-unique needs. By specifying a data object's header information required for exchange on the IC Enterprise, EDH ensures a secure method of information sharing and discovery, supporting use cases such as the IC Cloud.

ITS - Organization Messaging

Chief Information Officer

Information Transport Service Organizational Messaging


Overview

This XML Data Encoding Specification for Information Transport Service Organizational Messaging ITS/OM defines detailed implementation guidance for using Extensible Markup Language (XML) to encode ITS/OM data. The ITS OM provides the Intelligence Community (IC) with a common set of services, architectural infrastructure, operating environment, and maintenance support to seamlessly transport information across IC-unique domains and via cross-domain systems, to other domains such as the DOD and other U.S. government agencies.

The creation of this XML standard provides a common programming schema for the IC messaging community. The extensive and consistent use of XML will improve data discovery,data sharing, and system interoperability.

RR: Security Markings

Chief Information Officer

IC CIO Enterprise Integration & Architecture

REST Service Encoding Specification for Security Markings
  

Overview  

   
This technical specification defines the syntax, protocol and conventions for applying security metadata or notices to a request or a response message conveyed using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).


Adding security metadata and notices to messages provides the capability to route and filter messages based on classification and other security markings. By processing security metadata such as portion markings and tearlines, access control points have the ability to filter data based on the formal authorization credentials of authenticated users.


This specification provides guidance for the implementation of applying such metadata to messages using HTTP or REpresentational State Transfer (REST)-based services.
