CDR: Atom Results Set

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).

Atom Data Encoding Specification for Content Discovery and Retrieval Result Sets, Version 2 (10 Apr 13)  |  (Light Version)

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.

Intelligence Community Identifier

Intelligence Community Identifier

Overview

Intelligence Community Identifier is defined in two encoding specifications, the TXT and XML encodings. The Text Data Encoding Specification for Intelligence Community Identifier (IC-ID.Text) defines detailed implementation guidance for textual identifiers to be used with a variety of text-based encodings. The XML Data Encoding Specification for Intelligence Community Identifier (IC-ID.XML), defines how to incorporate those identifiers into XML structures.

This specification is applicable to the Intelligence Community (IC) and information produced by, stored, or shared within the IC. This Data Encoding Specification (DES) may have relevance outside the scope of intelligence; however, prior to applying outside of this defined scope, the DES should be closely scrutinized and differences separately documented and assessed for applicability.

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.

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 Data Coordination Activity (DCA) and Common Metadata Standards Tiger Team (CMSTT)

Intelligence Community Identifier, Version 1 (10 Apr 13)


Mission Requirements


(U) Information sharing within the national intelligence enterprise will increasingly rely on unique identifiers in shared intelligence. A structured, verifiable representation of unique identifiers 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.

(U) “Intelligent” identifiers (embedded names, dates, organizations) are fragile. - Reassignments, recalls, and reorganizations make these kind of identifiers obsolete or meaningless over time. Lack of a globally unique identifier makes certain technical challenges harder, such as search, access control, duplicate detection, citations, folder references, etc. IC-ID alleviates these problems with an identifier that can be guaranteed globally unique and can be used into the indefinite future.

Data Encoding Specification for Intelligence Publications

Overview

This IC enterprise data encoding specification defines XML elements and attributes, associated structures and relationships, mandatory and cardinality requirements, permissible values, and constraint rules for representing electronic textual information resources. Textual information resources consist primarily of text supplemented by interspersed non-textual information. Examples include assessments, studies, estimates, compilations, reports, and other document-oriented information.

This specification contains tagging structures for information resource metadata, mixed textual and media content found in the body of publications, source reference citations, classification and control markings, and knowledge assertions. Compliance with this specification is measured against all aspects of the technical and documentary artifacts contained within the specification release package.

This specification changed names and numeric designators multiple times since its inception in the late 1990's. Each version listed below supersedes the prior version.

This specification is maintained by the IC Chief Information Officer via the Data Coordination Activity (DCA) and Common Metadata Standards Tiger Team (CMSTT).

Mission Requirements

This specification is designed to fulfill a number of requirements in support of the transformational efforts of the Intelligence Community. Many of these requirements are articulated in IC Directives 203, 206, 208, 501, and 710, among others. Features of this specification are provided to support:

  • Improving publication and dissemination efficiency by reducing the cost and time for performing manual and complex rendering, manipulation, and content transformation.
  • Facilitating discovery and exchange of intelligence publications between collectors, all-source analysts, and consumers.
  • Capturing overall security marking metadata in order to support attribute-and clearance-based information management practices, such as: secure collaboration, content management, content and portion-level filtering of discovery results, and content transfers across security domains.
  • Capturing source reference citations to provide intelligence producers the ability to systematically analyze how and at what frequency the data they gather or produce is being used.
  • Capturing and retaining a greater understanding of an intelligence publications meaning, purpose, genesis, and characteristics as identified by a human or service.

Abstract Data Definition

Intelligence Community Abstract Data Definition

Overview


The Intelligence Community Abstract Data Definition (IC.ADD) defines the high-level types of data and metadata that are important to the IC.

The selected or developed physical Data Encoding Specifications established by the IC map to the IC.ADD's abstract data elements providing a means to relate or translate different physical data encodings.The abstract data elements defined in the IC.ADD are not meant to be implementable within enterprise systems. IC elements should implement the physical Data Encoding Specifications that implement these abstract data elements.

This specification is maintained by the IC Chief Information Officer via the Data Coordination Activity (DCA) and Common Metadata Standards Tiger Team (CMSTT).
