An Investigation Into the Application of Defence In Depth Theory to Electronic Information Protection

ABSTRACT

This paper discusses an investigation into the application of traditional Defense in Depth theory to digital electronic information protection. Defense in Depth is firstly discussed in a physical security context, where deterrence, detection, delay and response are shown to be achieved by psychological, electronic, physical and procedural barriers. The Electronic Information Attack Model is then proposed, which comprises a hierarchical structure defining different aspects of electronic information and ways of attacking its confidentiality, integrity and availability. The final component then proposes that the four Defense in Depth functions can provide electronic information protection by layering barriers at various levels in the Electronic Information Attack Model.

An Approach to Secure Remote Computing for Network Centric Operations

ABSTRACT

Information security is a critical aspect of a network centric architecture. As a defence force transitions to a network centric organisation strong consideration to system and network security is necessary. One facet of a network centric organisation where it can be difficult to enforce information security is for remote personnel. Information security at the deployed or remote network node often relies upon a mixture of hastily established physical, procedural and logical security mechanisms that may not always provide the same level of assurance as the information security afforded in established and permanent Defence environments.
