THIS WEBINAR HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21st at 12:00 PM ET
A cross-domain solution (CDS) is a capability that can be used to securely connect discrete systems or networks, which may have different security policies to address exposure to threats and risks and therefore hold different levels of trust. CDS is an example of technological convergence where discrete security concepts and technologies are carefully combined within a comprehensive system architecture to protect sensitive, critical, and classified networks.
There is a critical need for secure information sharing and collaboration across all types of international, governmental, federal, agency, state, local, and security boundaries. Secure information-sharing capabilities must support the full spectrum of operations ranging from military to domestic to humanitarian aid and include a diverse set of stakeholders, including foreign partners, coalition forces, and other information system owners throughout the U.S. government.
To better support and educate the systems engineering workforce, this webinar will address introductory basic CDS concepts and key topics to help establish a foundation for understanding CDS technology and the associated policies, processes, challenges, and risks. Topics addressed in this webinar will include the following:
- What is a CDS, and why is it needed?
- Classes of CDSs
- CDS policies
- CDS security requirements, core services, and applicability
- System architecture considerations
- CDS need determination and acquisition process
- Testing requirements for a CDS
- CDS connection approval process
- CDS operations, maintenance, and lifecycle
- CDS challenges and risks
