Atom Data Encoding Specification for Content Discovery and Retrieval Result Sets (DOD)

Atom Data Encoding Specification for Content Discovery and Retrieval Result Sets (DOD)

Overview

The Content Discovery & Retrieval (CDR) framework enables the use of results sets in service responses. As various service specifications leverage the Atom 1.0 feed syndications format, guidelines must be created to ensure consistent usage across CDR Search REST and SOAP specifications. In addition to the general guidelines for the use of Atom as described at http://www.atomenabled.org and in Atom 1.0 specification itself, this document extends the base specification to support information requirements in the CDR Search component. The guidance provided in this document focuses largely on the use of Atom 1.0 feed syndication format itself and the general format of commonly used extensions.

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.

Compliance with this specification is measured against all aspects of the technical and documentary artifacts contained within the specification release package. This specification is maintained by the IC Chief Information Officer via the Services Coordination Activity (SCA) and Content Discovery and Retrieval Integrated Product Team (CDR IPT).

Value Proposition

This specification is designed to fulfill a number of requirements in support of the transformational efforts of the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense Enterprise(IC/DoD). Features of this specification are to:

  • To provide guidance on leveraging Atom 1.0 as a result set for both the CDR REST and SOAP Search specifications
  • Support the implementation of both the IC/DoD Content Discovery & Retrieval SOAP [CDR-SS] and REST [CDR-RS] Interface Specifications for CDR Search.

Information Transport Service Messaging Service

Overview


This XML Data Encoding Specification for Information Transport Service Messaging Service (ITS-MS.XML) defines detailed implementation guidance for using Extensible Markup Language (XML) to encode ITS-MS data. This Data Encoding Specification (DES) defines the XML elements and attributes, associated structures and relationships, mandatory and cardinality requirements, and permissible values for representing ITS-MS data assertion concepts using XML within the use of a Trusted Data Format (TDF) Object or Collection.


This Data Encoding Specification (DES) defines how to properly structure a valid instance of an ITS-MS assertion that would conform with this specification. Use of TDF is required for compliance with this DES. A TDF may conform with multiple DES simultaneously assuming none of the criterion are in conflict.

This specification applies to the IC, as defined by the National Security Act of 1947, as amended; and such other elements of any other department or agency as may be designated by the President, or designated jointly by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the head of the department or agency concerned, as an element of the IC. Joint and Coalition forces may use this specification but it is not required.

The IC Chief Information Officer via the Data Standards Coordination Activity (DSCA) and Common Metadata Standards Tiger Team (CMSTT) maintains this specification.

Mission Requirements

Initially, the primary purpose of this specification is that it will be the basis of the IC's Enterprise Audit solution and the subsequent exchange of audit information, and is a requirement for participation in the IC Enterprise Audit Program. However, any exchange of TDF packages using ITS should use this assertion specification.

Access Rights and Handling

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.

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.
