Multi-Level Secure Data Dissemination, Garo Panossian Jun 2019

Multi-Level Secure Data Dissemination, Garo Panossian

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

Multi-level security is prevalent within the military; however, the private sector has not yet invested in the approach. As big data, Internet of things, and artificial intelligence drive businesses to collaborate (share data, algorithms, and tools) the need to secure such resources while simultaneously sharing them will push towards an alternative approach-–namely Multi-level security. The military labels data according to the sensitivity it carries as related to national security. Furthermore, the military restricts access by both the overall trust in the individual and by their need-to-know. To put it another way, data has a certain level of sensitivity and ...
