Abstract
The Department of National Defence (DND) has a requirement to share information subject to need-to-know and security policy enforcement within a single network environment. The ability to bind a security label, containing classification and caveat information, to objects, in a secure and trusted manner, is a critical component of the access management infrastructure. This paper proposes an approach to security labelling suitable for the Secure Access Management for Secret Operational Networks (SAMSON) environment, that will allow security labels to be incorporated into all access decisions.
