The Data Encoding Specification for the IC Full Service Directory Schema V1.0 codifies the set of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) attributes that IC elements are expected to provide when participating in the Intelligence Community Full Service Directory (IC FSD) architecture. The collection of attributes defined in the specification results in an overarching IC FSD Schema that is suitable for describing IC Entities within the TS/SCI environment. IC Entities may fall into the categories of an “IC Person” or “IC Non-Person Entity”, with the latter being used to define objects such as servers, devices, appliances, applications, and services that exist within the IC enterprise. The IC FSD Schema described in the specification is designed for implementation within LDAPv3-compliant directory servers.
The Data Encoding Specification for the IC Full Service Directory Schema V1.0 defines detailed specifications for attributes that IC elements are expected to provide to the Intelligence Community Full Service Directory (IC FSD). Its function is to facilitate the availability, accuracy, and standardization of these attributes across the IC TS/SCI enterprise, building a consistent basis for capabilities including directory services, email functions, and attribute-based access control decisions. The specification defines:
The IC Enterprise Authorization Attribute Exchange between IC Attribute Services, Authorization Attribute Set v1.0 codifies the minimum set of enterprise-level authorization attributes that IC elements are expected to provide if they participate in the Intelligence Community Unified Authorization and Attribute Service (UAAS) architecture. It provides a common, consistent way to identify IC enterprise authorization attributes of IC persons produced by, stored within, or shared throughout the IC’s TS/SCI information domain.
The name, definition, cardinality, and controlled vocabulary for each attribute are defined in order to promote interoperability between UAAS-compliant attribute services established by participating IC Agencies. The set of authorization attributes described in the specification is designed for implementation within products and servers that are capable of supporting the Encrypted Mode option of the OASIS SAML V2.0 Attribute Sharing Profile for X.509 Authentication-Based Systems, Committee Specification 01.
This CDR Specification Framework describes in greater detail the CDR Components and capabilities presented in the CDR Reference Architecture. It is meant to provide guidance in enough detail to enable interoperability among independent implementations without otherwise constraining the implementation itself. In this vein, this document describes inputs and outputs to each component in the context of the expected behavior that clarifies what is needed as inputs, outputs, and other effects that are expected to be produced. It does not, however, specify the details of the internal implementation processing.
