CERTIFIED CROSS DOMAIN ACCESS SOLUTION

SecureView® is a Cross Domain Access solution developed by the Air Force that provides users with the ability to access Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) and Operational Domains on a single workstation.
SecureView enables a single computer to host multiple guest virtual machines (VMs) running at different classification levels and connected to multiple networks. SecureView has been accredited in the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) since 2011, and is on the Unified Cross-Domain System Management Office (UCDSMO) baseline of approved solutions.

A low-cost, non-proprietary MILS solution

SecureView is based on COTS virtualization technology. Leveraging the technology and architecture from NSA’s High Assurance Platform (HAP) program, SecureView establishes security and the chain-of-trust is down to the actual processor and chipset of the PC. SecureView uses an open-source, Type I or “bare metal” hypervisor that drastically enhances the performance and security of its MILS workstations over other Cross Domain Solutions.

In addition to its unparalleled security, SecureView is an extremely agile and flexible solution to address a wide variety of use cases. SecureView supports Windows, Linux, and Solaris guest VMs as well as simultaneously supporting both thick- and thin-client computing models. While SecureView workstations can be used to access multiple networks or classification levels, it also can be configured to be physically connected to multiple wires and network interface cards (NICs), or to have a consolidated single wire to the desktop. SecureView also works on several different desktops, laptops, and tablets manufactured by leading OEMs such as Dell, HP, Panasonic, and NCS.

ENABLING “DESKTOP AS A SERVICE” FOR THE DOD / IC

“Desktop as a Service” is a transformative strategy that revolutionizes the traditional IT operating model. “Desktop as a Service” initiatives will enable the IC and DoD to migrate from an agency-centric IT architecture to a common platform where the community easily and securely shares technology, information and resources.

WIRELESS ACCESS TO CLASSIFIED LOCAL AREA NETWORKS

For years, the IC and DoD have searched for a secure wireless solution to be able to provide their personnel with the ability to stay connected to classified networks regardless of their location inside of a sensitive compartmentalized information facility (SCIF) or open storage area.

NSA’s new Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program provides U.S. government agencies with unprecedented capabilities to deploy and secure classified networks. Rather than requiring the development of any Type I or proprietary hardware, CSfC is centered around the integration of NSA’s Suite B cryptographic algorithms into commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment (Virtual Private Network gateways, wireless controllers, etc). By leveraging the CSfC solutions, Government agencies can leverage Virtual Private Network (VPN) capability to securely tunnel classified network traffic over any black or unclassified network, including a black wireless Local Area Network.

CLASSIFIED COMMON MISSION NETWORK TRANSPORTS

Enabling the Mission Partner Environment and supporting multiple Coalition networks is a key challenge for the DoD and its coalition partners, especially dealing with the growing number of classified networks and enclaves required to support coalition Communities of Interest (COIs). Consolidating the number of physical networks and end user workstations is essential to achieving increased mission effectiveness, personnel efficiency, and IT cost reduction objectives.

REVOLUTIONIZING THE DoD SIPRNET INFRASTRUCTURE

Over the past 25 years, the DoD has deployed several classified networks (SIPRNET, CENTRIX, BICES, etc.) as an “overlay” to its traditional, unclassified network (NIPRNET). The result of this approach has been the proliferation of disparate network infrastructures, including physical cabling, network switches, and Red/Black communication closets, throughout military facilities and installations.
