Abstract : This report surveys technologies and methodologies that foster collaboration in multilevel security (MLS) environments. One of the unique challenges of national defense is the handling of highly sensitive and compartmentalized information. In this era of WikiLeaks and other compromises to our nation's investments insecurity, the rules for information access are understandably not easing. Most who have proper access have the right intentions yet these information security measures, at best, slow their progress if not stifle it in some cases. Teamwork in particular suffers. Therefore, as part of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL)-National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) Experiment (ANX), AFRL's Human Effectiveness Directorate (RH) was asked to determine the state-of-the-art in MLS collaboration technologies and make recommendations. The goal was not to find ways to circumvent operational security, but rather to promote collaboration without compromise.
