Abstract:

Secure information distribution is a strategic capability as significant as weapons systems and tactics to military operations. The Department of Defense has recognized the importance of establishing and maintaining secure distributed file systems and explores the practicality and applicability of one such system, Trusted Ficus File System TRUFFLES, in the DoD infrastructure. Integrated into this research are discussions of Privacy Enhanced Mail PEM, which is currently an integral part of the TRUFFLES implementation. This thesis concludes with a discussion of the actual installation of a PEM reference implementation, and future requirements for the TRUFFLES installation at the Naval Postgraduate School.
