Secure Network Consolidation for Defense Agencies
The Next Generation of Technology to Support the War Fighter

Modern warfare is about information. Winners are determined by who knows more than their enemy, knows it sooner, and knows how to keep what they know secret while not inhibiting communication with coalition allies.

War fighters need information where they need it, when they need it, and how they need it. Given the policies and laws dictating how unclassified, classified, and highly classified information must be treated, getting information where it needs to be, when it needs to be there, without spillage, exposure, or compromise is one of the greatest challenges facing military communications operations.

The current state-of-the-art in IT infrastructure required to support multiple levels of information classification is daunting:

  • Separate physical computers for different classifications of data
  • Separate physical networks carrying different classifications of data
  • Inability to effectively restrict cross domain movement of data

These solutions result in excessive:

  • Power consumption
  • Weight
  • Wiring
  • Cooling
  • Floor space
  • Computer equipment
  • Network equipment
  • Administration
  • Risk of data spills
  • Cost

As an example, the U.S. Army's Central Command (USCENTCOM) can have 14 or more different networks in use at any time to communicate with various combinations of coalition partners. In the field, USCENTCOM personnel require multiple computers, e-mail accounts, and software application installations, each connected to a different network.

War fighters need a solution that enables them to securely consolidate their information onto one computer and one network. This has been all but impossible, until now.

The INTEGRITY separation kernel is the first and only operating system to be certified by the NSA to EAL6+ High Robustness. According to US Government documents, High Robustness is necessary protection for environments which have the "presence of both sophisticated threat agents and high value resources".

INTEGRITY's Secure Separation Architecture enables the secure consolidation of network connections. A single system running INTEGRITY can give a user secure access to:

  • Bilateral Networks

As a result, war fighters can move from application to application on a single desktop system that meets all military requirements for security.

Secure Network Consolidation based on INTEGRITY offers the military:

  • A High Robustness Certified Foundation
  • Secure separation of data
  • Secure management of all levels of data on one computer over one network
  • Reduced hardware expenditures
  • Reduced networking equipment expenditures
  • Reduced technical support expenditures
  • Reduced power and cooling requirements
  • Mathematically proven security
  • Support for legacy operating systems and applications
  • Reduced risk of data spills
  • Ability to deploy on desktop PCs, servers, Thin-Client Workstations and even PDAs
  • Windows and Linux support
