Abstract:

Current DoD information systems need to support many different missions through cooperation with different organizations and allies. In todays fast paced and dynamic environment, it is almost impossible to design and implement a different information system for each mission. Therefore, DoD needs MLS workflow management systems WFMS to enable globally distributed users and existing applications to cooperate across classification domains to achieve mission critical goals. An MLS WFMS that allows users to program multilevel mission logic, securely coordinate widely distributed tasks, and monitor the progress of the workflow across classification domains is required. In this paper, we present requirements for MLS workflow and a strategy for implementing it, especially the method for decomposing an MLS workflow into multiple single-level workflows.
