CDR: Describe

IC Technical Specifications

CDR: Describe

Overview


The Describe specifications define requirements and provide guidelines for the realization of the CDR Describe Component as a RESTful and SOAP web service and SOAP protocol. The content of these specifications specifies the Describe Service’s behavior, interface and other aspects in detail, providing enough information for Describe Service providers and consumers to create and use CDR-conformant Describe Services.

 

The Describe Service exposes one required Describe Function for exposing information that describes a content collection. The exposed information, referred to as a Description, is a collection of metadata that refers to the entire content collection rather than individual content resources in the content collection. The Description can be used by Describe consumers to make smart decisions regarding the applicability of a content collection, for example, this type of information can be used by Brokered Search providers to perform type, coverage and/or content-based search query routing.

 

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


 

Value Proposition

These specifications are 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 provide common service interfaces and a behavioral model to enable Describe consumers, such as Brokered Search providers, to discover relevant content collections from disparate collections across the IC/DoD enterprise.

  • To support the implementation of both the IC/DoD Content Discovery & Retrieval SOAP and REST Interface Specifications for CDR Brokered Search 1.1.]

IC Technical Specifications

Revision Recall

Overview

This IC enterprise data encoding specification defines detailed implementation guidance for using XML to encode RevRecall data.  It defines the XML elements and attributes, associated structures and relationships, mandatory and cardinality requirements, permissible values, and constraint rules for representing RevRecall data concepts using XML.

This standard supports Executive Order (EO) 13526, Classified National Security Information which "prescribes a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security information," across national security disciplines, networks, services, and data.

Compliance with this specification is measured against all aspects of the technical and documentary artifacts contained within the specification release package.

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

Mission Requirements

This specification expresses information related to the revision and recall of intelligence products.  This information allows recipients to be aware of revisions and recalls and to take necessary actions in regards to previous versions.

This specification is intended to meet the requirements put forth in the Memorandum for Distribution signed by Negroponte on August 5, 2005.  This includes declaring the title or subject of the intelligence product being revised or recalled, type of revision or recall, the date the revision or recall was issued, the reason for its issuance, and any required actions to be taken as a result of its issuance.

IC Technical Specifications

Intelligence Community Only Need-To-Know

Overview


This XML Data Encoding Specification for Intelligence Community Only Need-To-Know Profile (ICO-NTK.XML) provides detailed implementation guidance to limit dissemination of appropriately tagged information solely to members of the Intelligence Community (IC). Certain information is only permitted to be disseminated to and accessed by members of the IC. This profile defines a specification that uses NTK for conveying the requirement to limit dissemination.

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.

The IC Chief Information Officer maintains this specification 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.

This specification includes design features that address:

  • Defines the use of elements and attributes from NTK, associated structures, relationships, requirements, cardinality, and permissible values for representing ICO-NTK data concepts using XML.
  • Defines how information is disseminated to and accessed by members of the IC.
  • Discusses relationship between ICO-ACES and ADD re mapping

Web Service Security High Level Guidance

IC Technical Specifications

Web Service Security

Overview


The High Level Guidance for Web Service Security (WSS-HLG) provides guidance to solutions architects and developers on how to consistently approach circumstances for which security solutions are required. This document focuses on security fundamentals essential to designing and building secure solutions that involve web services focusing on approaches for access control, use of assertions, security markings, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation. The WSS-HLG provides solution approaches at a high level, intended to provide an understanding of information security fundamentals essential to such solutions, for the purpose of building both secure and interoperable approaches that are consistent across the IC.

The High Level Guidance for Web Service Security (WSS-HLG) provides important guidance for building and integrating with web services solutions in an interoperable, secure, and consistent manner. As there is a great number of standards, technical mechanisms, and capabilities that can be used for building web services security solutions, it is important that solutions architects understand the tradeoffs, risks, and benefits of approaches. It is critical, from a security and interoperability perspective, that security mechanisms are applied in a consistent manner, and this document provides needed guidance in the areas of access control, assertion passing, security markings, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation.

The intended audience of this information guidance document is project managers, software architects, network architects, and developers who develop and integrate with web services. This document provides guidance in areas that will be important in satisfying security requirements and information security goals in a secure and interoperable manner.
