Uniting Need to Know with Need to Share 

Information sharing has become critical to maintaining national security. Agencies need to communicate mission-critical information between people, organizations, locations, communities of interest, and security domains, while ensuring exchange of correct and authorized data with authorized recipients.

To solve this problem, agencies need to employ a cross domain solution that provides assured information sharing with the ability to securely transfer information between two or more differing communities of interest or security domains.

SafeNet Assured Technologies Multi-Domain eXchange (MDeX) System

The MDeX System securely manages the transfer of voice, video, and data across multi-level security domains. This adaptable plug-n-play solution provides assured information sharing so that right data is shared with the right recipients, while rigorously enforcing your information sharing policies.

The MDeX System enables sensitive information to be shared between organizations to address mission critical problems such as:

  • Cybersecurity Situational Awareness
  • Disaster Response
  • Supply Chain Security
  • Defense and Intelligence Coordination
  • Cloud Assurance
  • Big Data Analytics

MDeX System Architecture

  • MDeX Transfer System (MTS): Security core appliance that orchestrates the flow and filtering of information according to customer policies and rule sets
  • Security Domain Intermediary (SDI): Protocol and queuing edge interface between domain applications and MTS
  • Remote Management Station (RMS): Enterprise management appliance for policy and security management, command and control, and monitoring

Customer Problem

MDeX System Solution

Cyber Security and Situational Awareness

  • Collection of sensor, management, and monitoring data from diverse domains for mission and enterprise services.
  • Distribution of events to collaborative processing environment for trend, threat, vulnerability, and mitigation analytics
  • Delivery of reports and alerts/tips for institutional and community cyber situational awareness

Cloud Assurance

  • Distribution of content between cloud environments (e.g. private to private clouds, private to public, public to public clouds) by managing information flows to ensure they meet organizational information sharing policies.

Supply Chain Security

  • Distribution of intellectual property, contract data, and sensitive system design data through a mutually authorized risk management process based on strict policy decision and enforcement controls.

DoD and Intel Coordination

  • Collection of sensor and multi-source data from diverse domains to mission and enterprise services.
  • Distribution of events for collaborative information and intelligence product production environments.
  • Delivery of institutional action reports and infrastructure command and control

Big Data Analytics

  • Collection and Distribution of large volumes of data without impeding performance for near real-time collaborative analytics

 

Features and Benefits

Plug and Play Architecture

The MDeX System’s modular design creates an environment where adding new domains, communities of interest, applications, and content filters requires significantly less custom development compared to most solutions. This gives organizations the flexibility to change their requirements based on mission needs.

Enterprise and Mission Integration

The MDeX System includes enterprise and mission management through its centralized (managing n CDS instances) and distributed (remote accessibility to management platform) capabilities for command and control, monitoring, and management activities.

Ease of Use

The MDeX System’s intuitive GUI for remote management provides a forward-thinking interface to policy and configuration management, and the means to view audit, system, and application events. This user-friendly design enables systems managers to quickly learn MDeX System operations.

Accessibility

The MDeX System includes PK-enabled web access from any authorized location. The MDeX System also provides the ability for enterprise and mission management services to gain accessibility to active cross domain event information to enable proactive data flow management.

Dynamic Policy Enforcement - Real-time Policy Changes with Assurance

Dynamic policy enforcement allows data owners to establish granular information flows and content filtering policies as mission needs dictate using the industry standard, OASIS XACML, security policy language.

The separation of flow and content policies, and use of XACML, enables rapid examination and approval of defined policies by organization authorities.  This allows organization and mission authorities to operate in a coordinated manner to implement policy changes to address changing mission needs.
