IC Technical Specifications

Authority Category


Overview

Any IT system performing entity authentication may use this specification to determine if a given entity should be granted access to a specific piece of data.

This specification applies to the IC, as defined by the National Security Act of 1947, as amended, and ICS 500-27, Collection and Sharing of Audit Data; 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 Services Coordination Activity (DSCA) and Common Metadata Standards Tiger Team (CMSTT).

Mission Requirements

Information sharing within the national intelligence enterprise relies on the ability to discover and access intelligence content from any location, at any time, with as few restrictions as possible.  ICD 501 empowers analysts, operators, and collectors with a wide range of capabilities for discovering, using, and sharing content within the IC and with partners.  This authority comes with great responsibility, a responsibility that must be tracked, analyzed, and reported on.

The auditing of person and non-person entities within the IC protects the nation from abuse, voluntary or involuntary disclosure, as well as insider and outsider threats.  The audit specification is derived from the fundamental mission requirement to track and audit the discovery and access of intelligence content and information resources within the IC enterprise.

 
This CES defines allowable values for the Authority Category attribute to indicate under what authority a specific piece of data was collected.  The Authority Category attribute is contained in the Unified Idenity Attribute Set (UIAS) specification

IC Technical Specifications

US Agency Acronym

Overview


This XML Data Encoding Specification for US Agency Acronyms (USAgency.XML) defines detailed implementation guidance for using Extensible Markup Language (XML) to encode US Agency 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 US Agency data concepts using XML. Versions 1 and higher of this Data Encoding Specification (DES) can be utilized with a Trusted Data Format structure and valid PUBS instances that use a Trusted Data Format (TDF) wrapper. A TDF instance may conform with multiple DES simultaneously assuming none of the criterion are in conflict.

This XML Data Encoding Specification lists & defines a set of US Agency Acronyms (with their definitions) in various Controlled Vocabulary Enumeration (CVE) file formats for use by agencies in the IC Enterprise.  It contains valid acronyms for use within the IC Enterprise for IC Agency publishing organizations, agencies, and Cabinet Offices.

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.

This is the first release of the specification and therefore provides no backward capability.

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)
