Abstract:

A major challenge facing the MLS community is to find ways to provide the information and connectivity that DoD users demand without either imposing unacceptable security risks or requiring expensive hardware and software that fails to mesh with commercial off-the-shelf COTS applications. This paper proposes, very briefly, an architecture that meets these goals using only a small number of relatively simple, low cost, high assurance components in combination with a preponderance of unmodified COTS hardware, operating systems and applications.
