Jericho Systems Executes an Enterprise License Agreement with DCGS-A for Identity and Access Management (IdAM) Security Framework

Jericho Systems Corporation announced that the Army’s Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS-A) has purchased bulk, perpetual licenses and maintenance agreements for the EnterSpace® Decisioning Service (ESDS) and associated components in support of DCGS-A’s Tactical Identity and Access Management (IdAM) Security Framework.

Jericho Systems’ flagship, patented ESDS software was selected to enforce enterprise security policies leveraging standards-based, state-of-the-art attribute-based access control (ABAC) architectures. DCGS-A’s solution provides an extensible ABAC architecture with a configurable policy enforcement point (PEP), policy administration point (PAP), and policy decision point (PDP) that allow domain-specific and Community of Interest (COI)-specific customizations.

“Jericho Systems’ professional services arm augmented DCGS-A’s information assurance staff to architect the first ABAC-enabled tactical system, bringing DoD’s net-centric vision to the battlefield,” said Jericho Systems Cyber-Security Architect Bill Doyle. “The use of ESDS enabled DCGS-A to create an IdAM architecture that supports the digital mobility requirements of today’s warfighter while meeting information assurance requirements that protect DCGS-A’s IT assets.”

The purchased solution for DCGS-A provides access control to data across a security context that includes multiple platforms, various classified environments, multiple security credentials, and multiple protocols. The solution architecture is based on open standards and requirements as defined by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and National Security Agency (NSA). ESDS supports an interoperable, widget-based environment that facilitates a unified user experience, streamlines system development, supports re-usability of architecture components, and lowers the barrier of entry for community members.

DCGS-A, Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE), and Program Executive Office Intelligence Electronic Warfare & Sensors (PEO IEW&S) purchased ESDS and related components that support a Single Sign-On (SSO) user environment and architecture in tactical environments. The solution, which was designed and developed by Jericho, enables various architectures to work together to support DCGS-A’s requirements while meeting Army and Department of Defense/Intelligence Community (DoD/IC) enterprise guidance. The purchased components provide an end-to-end, user-focused solution that interoperates with enterprise services and authoritative identity and data sources. DCGS-A’s ESDS solution includes a Tactical Attribute Store (TAS), a Central Authorization Service (CAS), and interoperability with emerging enterprise services as part of a managed access control solution. The SSO user environment enabled by ESDS provides a secure architecture that supports pluggable components of the Ozone Widget Framework (OWF), Spring Security, and Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS).

“We are proud that DCGS-A has chosen Jericho Systems’ ESDS 'made-in-America' technology in support of the Army's tactical and enterprise data security needs,” said Brynn Mow, CEO of Jericho Systems.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile ...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, ...
Companies today struggle to manage the types and volume of data their customers and employees generate and use every day. With billions of requests daily, operational consistency can be elusive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Dave McCrory, CTO at Basho Technologies, will explore how a distributed systems solution, such as NoSQL, can give organizations the consistency and availability necessary to succeed with on-demand data, offering high availability at massive scale.
