Abstract:

This study reviews the security considerations for the DLA participation in CALS initiative. Its purpose is to highlight areas of concern and point out those areas to be explored for solutions to anticipated problems. The findings are 1 CALS data in a network of government and non-government system networks has no security focal point 2 the potential for inferring classified information from a vast reservoir of related, but unclassified, data is a real and present danger 3 the intended magnitude of unclassified CALS technical data sharing poses a security vulnerability 4 the nature and limit of government responsibility are not adequately define for proprietary data that may be damaged, changed, purloined, or otherwise suffer diminished value as a result of a contractors participation in CALS and 5 most DoD component logistics AIS designs do not use the sophisticated software and data base environments have security and integrity features commensurate with todays needs.
