3 Net-Centric Tenets Recipe for Agility DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy
Information Assurance Strategy Core Enterprise Services (NCES) Global Connectivity (Transformational Communications) The DoD has identified 4 net-centric tenets that facilitate agility – the ability to more rapidly respond to known and unknown threats and opportunities. Today’s presentation will focus on the DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy and NCES (a DoD program for providing common Core Enterprise Services). Recipe for Agility

4 DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy
JA0074C.4 BM6710 AL 3/28/ :37:02 AM3/28/ :37:02 AM Marcom DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy The DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy, issued by the DoD CIO May 9, 2003, is the plan to make the Department’s information resources: Visible Is an information resource discoverable by most users? Is it available on the network, and are tools readily available to use it? Accessible Can it be intelligibly used? Are the semantics well documented? Understandable Are the source, security level and access controls of the data available to users? Trusted The Department’s approach to net-centricity has been set forth in a documented called the DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy. It was signed out by ASD NII on 9 May This strategy lays out the six clear-cut actionable goals shown here. The questions beside each goal clarify the intent of each goal. Interoperable Can it be combined or compared with other information? Can it be mediated? Responsive Is the data what users need? Are robust user feedback mechanisms in place to improve it? CC/S/As must institutionalize processes to accomplish these goals 4

5 Quiz: Which of these is Metadata?
An XML Schema? A WSDL? A database structure? A picklist? An index card in the library? MS-Office product’s properties? classification and release conditions? Notes on the back of a photo? iPod playlist? Date and reviewer for a taxonomy? Product ratings & comments on Amazon? Metadata is key to accomplishing these goals. However, one person’s metadata is another person’s data. Most people would agree that the black check marks represent metadata. However, the gray check marks can be argued either way (data or metadata). The DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy specifically discusses 3 types of metadata: structural, semantic, and discovery.

Purpose Provide an on-line repository which enables developers to reuse, understand, integrate with, and share existing data assets (metadata) Targeting web services, databases, and vocabularies Mandated for the publishing of semantic and structural metadata DOD Directive Provides a portal for developer access and web services for machine-to-machine access Key Facts Over 8,000 users and 180,000 assets registered Over 900 Programs of Record supported Serving the DoD, DHS, IC, NASA and NATO Hosted on NIPR, SIPR, and JWICS (in progress) User driven via DoD Metadata Working Group and Feedback links Implements the ebXML standard for Metadata Registries (in DISR) User Name/Password or Single Sign-On through DKO Governance structure provided by Joint Enterprise Services ERB Primary Benefits Enables reuse and governance of data assets Foundation for other services; e.g. mediation Allows the COI data assets to exist after the COI disbands Primary Audience DoD Capability Developers, COIs The DoD Metadata Registry is the Department’s electronic marketplace for structural metadata components. It provides enterprise-wide visibility and access for developers, configuration controllers and program overseers to register, use, subscribe, and manage structural metadata. The purpose of the Registry is not to publish broadly applicable standards, but to provide visibility into the Department’s ongoing structural metadata investment, and to encourage reuse of existing metadata components that are both developmental and operational. While each registered component is identified with its status and distinguished by a namespace, the Registry’s purpose is to allow developers to pull whatever they need; not to try and mandate usage of any particular metadata collection. The benefits to the developer, reductions in cost, time savings and interoperability have proven to be sufficient incentive. The public may access a portion of the DoD Metadata Registry via the Internet. To examine metadata artifacts, users must be sponsored by a government employee. The contents of the Metadata Registry are organized by governance namespaces within various metadata type “galleries.” Communities of Interest (COIs) should align with and leverage collections within one or more namespaces that intersect their concerns. Top Secret instance is run in conjunction with the Intelligence Community.

Who specifically are Players, (producers and consumers who are using GES information market services? ) This is the way we taking care of our information system builders and maintainers. We provide sharable data components under a configuration control process that’s broader than just one system. We provide our systems acquisition oversight at various levels with some “hard facts” about who’s doing what with the various sponsors’ monies. From a system builders point of view, the incentives for being in this market are: (1) reductions in risk, cost and schedule with respect to fielding interoperable capabilities (2) the possibility of having some of his data components gain market share and become key infrastructure that sponsors are willing to sustain. We’ve seen COTS vendors respond to these pressures where Oracle, SyBase and Microsoft have all segmented products to become viable in the COE infrastructure market.

24 Practical Utility for Taxonomies
JA0074C.24 BM6710 AL 3/28/ :37:02 AM3/28/ :37:02 AM Marcom Practical Utility for Taxonomies Applicable for Content Services Structural Metadata Aid precision search via DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS) Country.sql ISO.xsd FIPS.xsd As is observed in 11179, Part 2, classification schemes have utility for organizing. In DoD, we are using vocabularies/taxonomies for organizing content (via OWL in DDMS), services (currently via tModels), and structural metadata (via the MDR processes). The terms in blue are actual terms from the DoD Core Taxonomy. The items in the 3 yellow boxes are representative of some of the components registered in the DoD MDR. In the next few slides, I’ll show screen captures for associating these registered artifacts using the taxonomies registered in the MDR. <ddms> : <Subject>…/DoDCore#Terrorist_Event</Subject> </ddms>

We’ve selected OWL as the syntax for taxonomies and their cross-references. We’ve also added a Taxonomy Gallery to the Metadata Registry for COIs to register their taxonomies. The Taxonomy Gallery will provide the plumbing for search processes to match consumer requests to producer offerings. Using this strategy, we hope consumers will able to find information resources that were published using terms from a different taxonomy. equals AlQaida al-Qaeda Producer View Consumer View <ddms> : <Subject>…/MyCOI.owl#AlQaida</Subject> </ddms> 25

29 Framework for Registry Interoperability
JA0074C.29 BM6710 AL 3/28/ :37:02 AM3/28/ :37:02 AM Marcom Framework for Registry Interoperability Inter-Registry Object References Federated Queries Enterprise Search Aggregator Service MDR UDDI MDR DDMS-based Query Service Architecture Products Centralized Authority w/Local Caching Object Relocation More attention needed MDR We were also asked to discuss federations. Since that word has been overloaded and is now ambiguous, we have adopted the OASIS Cooperating Registries Model as our framework for registry interoperability. The model identifies 4 modalities that most registries must support. Although the model was developed to assist in the development and coordination for the OASIS ebXML Registry TC, we feel it can be used outside the context of any particular standard. In this diagram, we show the MDR in the context of each of the 4 modalities. Notice that although we do recognize that more attention is needed in the object relocation modality. Inter-registry Object References One registry contains an object that is associated with an object in another registry; e.g., a UID/key field/URL pointing to the actual object. Federated Queries A “federated” query is submitted to a registry.  That registry then submits a “local” query to all of its confederates.  A “local” query is not forwarded.  Central Authority w/Local Caching Objects are “owned” by a single registry. However, replicas can be created in other registries; e.g., to improve access time or to distribute hotly contested objects.   Replicas can only be created and deleted. All other life cycle operations must be performed upon the original object.  Updates can either be propagated by event notification generated from the original registry, or by periodic polling by the replicas’ registries.  Object Relocation An object in one registry can be relocated to another registry within or outside a federation.  However, referential integrity then becomes an issue. References to the original object address must be updated to refer to the new object address.  Example: US Post Office change of address form and process.  The old registry will automatically forward requests for a while.  The registry will also inform the requester to update their references.  Eventually the requestor will get an “object not found” fault.

32 Make Data Visible “Documents” Web Services Documented via
JA0074C.32 BM6710 AL 3/28/ :37:02 AM3/28/ :37:02 AM Marcom Make Data Visible “Documents” Documented via Keyword, Text, RSS/Atom, DDMS Metadata Cache (traditional) Search Index, OpenSearch (RSS/Atom) Syndication Feed, Google Data API (DDMS) Metadata Catalog, Federated Search Service Web Services Documented via WSDL + XSD(s) Metadata Cache ebXML Registry UDDI Registry Styles SOAP REST REST Goal 1 – Make Data Visible Visibility helps users become aware that data or service exists. It is completely reasonable that users may discover data or services that they will not be able to access. Data Access is treated separately. Generally speaking, data is accessible via a document or via a web service. For this discussion, a web service refers to a method for applications to talk with another application. The term ‘Documents’ is in quotes to reflect that data may appear to be stored on a file server as a static document, but in effect, be serialized (often from a db) on demand. When the data is serialized as XML and the transport protocol is HTTP or HTTPS, and the URL is used to pass parameters, this constitutes a REST-ful web service. Unlike SOAP applications that require a SOAP client specific to the particular SOAP service, a REST-ful web service can be called with a web browser (no special client is required). This blurs the distinction between the Documents and Web Services. The DoD will continue to pursue visibility using popular internet technologies like traditional search (think Google and Yahoo) and blog formats like RSS and Atom. DoD and IC are also pursuing a highly faceted search strategy based on the DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS). We’ll discuss this more on the next slide. Services will be visible to developers and applications through metadata and service registries. The WSDL and XSD that describe the service operations and request/response structures are visible via the DoD Metadata Registry. The endpoints (the URL that an application would call to execute the service) are visible via the Service Registry. REST = HTTP/HTTPS + URI + XML

33 DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS)
JA0074C.33 BM6710 AL 3/28/ :37:02 AM3/28/ :37:02 AM Marcom DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS) IC: ISM Configuration managed by DoD Metadata WG ISO: Dublin Core * ISO: Dublin Core * ISO: Dublin Core * ISO: Dublin Core * ISO: Dublin Core Data Catalog (historical) W3C: Date & Time ISO: Dublin Core ISO: Dublin Core ISO: Dublin Core ISO: Dublin Core W3C: OWL DDMS endorsed by Executive Order 13388 Before data can be shared, it must be visible. DoD has been working very closely with the IC to develop and configuration manage a profile of Dublin Core called the DDMS. The spec and the XSD reference implementation is managed by the DoD MWG. Think of this as the template for the index cards in the library – on steroids. We seek to identify relevant standards and import discrete versions, leaving the configuration mgmt to those organizations. For example, we have added security classification, adopting the Intelligence Security Metadata standard from the IC. We have added GeospatialCoverage, working with NGA to create a profile of GML. We have also adopted OWL as a method of identifying the subjectCoverage for the resource the index card, or metacard, points to. I’ll talk about that more later in the presentation. In the DoD, we have 2 conditions occurring concurrently – those that are rich with resource metadata and those that don’t have enough to meet our objectives. Regarding those that are rich in metadata, we have a number of programs that are mapping their resource metadata to this spec so their data catalogs can be federated. Regarding those that are resource metadata poor, we have an activity that is led by the AF to use text mining technologies to produce resource metadata IAW DDMS and put that metadata in data catalogs.

This facilitates dynamic data access for the unanticipated, but properly authenticated and authorized consumer. The security attributes for the book were adopted from the IC. The IC ISDSCA configuration manages an XSD implementation of the CAPCO Registry. The DDMS imports that ICISM XSD. The person attributes are obtained from the PKI card and via a JEDS that can obtain additional attributes. The releasability rules provide the conditions to give the resource to the requestor.
