Abstract
The classified defence environment is an extremely challenging environment where the rigorous protection of information assets has necessitated the adoption of a predominantly network-based information security model operating in System High Mode. Two innovative technologies, Public Key Infrastructure and Privilege Management Infrastructure, provide the underlying infrastructure with which to manage identity and access throughout an organization. This paper will examine how these two technologies can be enhanced in order to transition the classified defence environment to a content-based information security model capable of providing Multi-Caveat Separation and eventually supporting, Multi-Level Security mode.
