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.

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

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.

RR: End-to-End Identity Propagation

REST Service Encoding Specification for Identity Propagation

Overview

This technical specification applies to non-SOAP-based web services over HTTP and provides guidance for REST-based services in an environment that does not utilize a Security Token Service (STS).


(U) This specification provides a mechanism to track a sequence of requestor identifier(s), from the initiating requestor to the final called service, providing "end-to-end" visibility of the requestor(s) in the transaction sequence.


The solution provided by this specification provides a mechanism for conveying identity in an interoperable manner. The specification does not by itself provide integrity, confidentiality or non-repudiation of the requestor identity or identities over the service chain. This specification will, however, address how these security goals can be accomplished by using this specification in combination with other security mechanisms.

CDR: Keyword Query Language

CDR: Keyword Query Languange

Overview

This document defines a keyword query language for use with Content Discovery & Retrieval (CDR) Search Component implementations. A keyword, in the context of a basic search, is one of the strings used to find matching content resources. It was popularized during the early days of search engine development, as it was not possible to send natural language queries to those search engines and find the desired sites. Searches typically gave the best results if only a few keywords were chosen and searched for. These keywords attempted to capture the essence of the topic in question on the basis that the keywords were likely to be present on all sites listed by the search engine.


This specification defines a common syntax, providing enough information for Search Service providers and consumers to create and use CDR-conformant Keyword Query Language Search Services.


This specification supports Intelligence Community Directive 501(ICD 501), Discovery, Dissemination or Retrieval of Information within the Intelligence Community, which establishes policies for (1) discovery, and (2) dissemination or retrieval of intelligence and intelligence-related information collected, or analysis produced by the Intelligence Community.
