Abstract:

In any information system, a critical feature is the ability to link together disparate pieces of data and information via relationships. One way to greatly facilitate this task is to provide a common technique for identifying the pieces so that they can be conveniently referenced. Arbitrary linking of data can be accomplished by standardizing one field across disparate data sources. This is the objective of enterprise identifiers EID. If data can be globally identified using a common scheme, then one can spontaneously reference and retrieve arbitrary pieces of information with minimal prior coordination. A strategy for accomplishing this task was described by the author in a paper at last years 6th International Command Control Research Technology Symposium. This paper describes the implementation of an EID seed server and some of the ongoing issues encountered and being addressed.
