Advancing Cross Domain Solutions

Empowering the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Support Server Environment (ISSE) program with advanced cross domain solutions

Peraton empowers AFRL’s ISSE program. ISSE is a multi-domain, multi-purpose, configurable cross domain transfer solution that enables secure sharing of information and facilitates collaboration across secure domains. The ISSE system has evolved and matured to keep pace with technological advances, changing mission requirements, and new security challenges over the sixteen-plus years Peraton has been supporting the program.

Government information systems are connected to a variety of networks, each controlled by different security policies and representing distinct security domains. These domains are isolated from each other, typically to protect sensitive/classified information and network resources.

ISSE is a Controlled Interface (CI) that enables data to flow between two or more networks, each operating at a different classification level. ISSE allows users to create email messages and file-based products, and transfer them securely between security domains while preventing unauthorized releases of information. ISSE also supports machine-to-machine cross-domain information exchange such as database replication, video transfer, and Web Services communications. Data transfers are automatically audited and filtered to protect against cyber attacks and enable more effective collaboration across security domains.

Users can further advance their security posture by adding Peraton’s PuriFile product suite to their existing security protocol. PuriFile provides next-generation deep content inspection, threat detection, and sanitization of sensitive data to ensure continuity of operations, and is considered the defacto standard used in conjunction with most cross domain solutions.

In response to evolving security requirements, Peraton and AFRL have teamed up again to architect X-domain Agile Rules-Based Information Transfer Orchestrator (X-ARBITOR), an enhanced security framework enabling rapid deployment of emerging cross-domain solutions. Learn more about X-ARBITOR.
