Joint Information Environment The Way Ahead
Joint Information Environment What is it, anyways!? Joint information environment Shared IT infrastructure Enterprise services Single Security Architecture
JIE is NOT a Program of Record JIE is NOT a turn-key solution JIE is NOT an independent “way of doing things” – Uses existing architectures and services
JIE Core Principles – the BIG Rocks Joint Governance – “IT Task Force” Network Normalization – Standardization Data Center Consolidation – Reduced IT Footprint Identity and Access Management – Trusted authentication Enterprise Services – , collaboration, file storage, etc.
JIE – What are we trying to achieve? Improved Mission Effectiveness/Operational Flexibility – AGILE – Includes mobile, deployed – Works in Disconnected, Intermittent and Low Bandwidth Increased Cyber Security – Confidentiality, integrity and availability – Works with ALL Mission Partners IT Efficiencies/Joint Information Services – Interoperable – Maximum performance, reliability and extensibility
JIE’s Three Lines of Operation 1.Governance 2.Operations 3.Technical Synchronization
JIE Increment I EUCOM – Builds on existing network consolidation efforts – Heavily reliant on cloud architectures – Move Massive Application Silo’s to more flexible, responsive infrastructure Enterprise Operations Center Stuttgart, Germany
JIE Increment 2 - PACOM
Coalition capability “built-in” and not “added-on” Common Mission Network Transport must support network security enclaves to accommodate many communities-of-interest to support user-to-user coalition connectivity A wide-area neutral network is needed to connect the networks of sovereign nations Robust identity authentication and authorization management for each nation to maintain trust in the system E-Coalition-CIESLAK Bv2.pdf
Discretionary Information Sharing Trusted personnel Identification and authorization service Agile virtual enclaves Information conditioning Strength of separation required dex.html
JIE Challenges Multiple Enterprises – Military Services, Intelligence Community, Agencies, CCDRS Multiple Partners, Allies, Coalitions, States, NGAs, OGAs, PVOs, etc. Multiple Data Types – Public, Releasable, Private, Controlled, and Classified Information Austere Connectivity Over Very Large Distances – Not just robust high-capacity public infrastructure Mobile Forces & People Huge Populations & Communities Partners with varying levels of trust
Upcoming JIE Event JIE Mission Partner Symposium 2014 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Maryland from May 12 to May 14, 2014.
Jesse Adams Chief Architect – US NAVY NGEN/NMCI, HP Enterprise Services Jesse has been with HP (EDS) since Jesse started as a Solutions Architect on the NMCI account, then became HP’s Chief Architect for the account in early Responsible for working with the Echelon II commands to understand their objectives and help shape strategies. He joins us from the Dallas Fort Worth area.
JIE Challenges under NGEN Not a Program – perceived as an “unfunded mandate” – Program Office may pick-and-choose elements of JIE to be adopted LPTA Limits Innovation – Technology Refresh and Insertion Program will be largely responsible for moving existing designs into compliance with JIE, extending timeline for adoption over several years. “Not Designed Here” Syndrome – Must minimize the “drift” likely to occur from differing opinions on how to apply JIE
JIE Opportunities under NGEN Adoption of SSA will help mitigate ever-increasing circuit strains – The introduction of the SSA at primary site boundaries will enable NMCI to stand down their Boundary 1’s, which are overloaded today largely due to media-rich Internet traffic. On average, up to 90% of Internet traffic crossing the NMCI Boundary 1’s is MWR-related. – By facilitating Internet access closer to the users, the volume of traffic can be distributed across more points, reducing its impact on any individual WAN circuit.
JIE Opportunities under NGEN Server Farm Consolidation revisited – Move from a simple fork-lift approach to a modernization / transformation strategy Consolidate to standardized platforms Maximize virtualization for greatest service density – Move to a common reference architecture – potentially enable seamless migration of services between various data centers to meet evolving mission requirements. Introduction of “XaaS” – Technologies reviewed/revised to better enable “confederation” of services and data, in order to better position them to best support the users.
Jerry Bass Customer Solutions Architect – CISCO Federal Jerry has been with CISCO since Primary focus is Air Force. He is an expert in network security and information assurance. He joins us from the Boston area.
