Abstract : Transition to the Department of Defense (DoD) Goal Security Architecture (DGSA) is defined as the incorporation of DGSA-specified security concepts into information systems through system development and modernization efforts, focused on making the achievement of the DGSA security vision possible. The DGSA provides the goal and objectives, while this plan identifies a path to achievement in incremental steps and accomplishable tasking. With well over 7000 major information systems within the DoD, addressing those individual systems within this transition plan would be an impossible task. Therefore, this plan presents a uniform approach for the migration of information systems toward the DGSA common security goal. The plan's focus leads to enhanced information system security that is responsive to potential threats, flexible in its administration, inter operable in its execution, standard in its structure, and affordable.
