  1. CENTRIXS-ISAF:Phase 1 Overview Jesse Scott NC3A CAT 7: Core Enterprise Services NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF

  2. Agenda • 1. Transformation of Afghanistan Coalition Networks • 2. CENTRIXS-ISAF Interconnection Overview • 3. A Common Mission Network • 4. Operational Use • 5. Mission Applications & Interoperability • 6. The Way Ahead (Phase 2, HoA, Additional Nations) NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF

  3. Coalition Network Transformation • CENTRIXS-GCTF Cross-Domain Gateway (2006) • Procured by US and NATO • Allowing bi-directional e-mail and tracks through guards • UK Overtask Extension (2007) • Extension of NATO CIS to the UK bases in the south • Procured and deployed by the UK • Managed by NATO and UK • CENTRIXS-ISAF Interconnection (2009) • Procured by US and NATO (interconnection only) • Direct connection of the two networks with no guards • Connection managed by US and NATO NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF

  6. Creation of new CENTRIXS-ISAF network • National expansion of ISAF Secret network (e.g. Overtask Model) was not feasible for U.S. (funding and support structures) • Implementation Approach • Establish a new baseline (STIG = SIPRnet standards) and upgrade the CENTRIXS network in order to stand up CENTRIXS-ISAF within Afghanistan. • Remove ~5% non-ISAF TCN users to a separate network • Move CDG between CENTRIX-ISAF and CENTRIXS-GCTF • Establish two interconnection points (Kabul and KAF) between CENTRIXS-ISAF and ISAF Secret NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF

  9. Common Mission Network CommandC2 Network • Strategic (JFC-B, ISAF HQ) NS / IS • Operational (IJC, RC, APOD) NS / IS CX-I, National (CJOC) • Tactical (TF) CX-I, UK Overtask, National networks • The funding of NATO CIS into the operational level is more then traditionally expected from NATO (Balkans, Bi-SC AIS) NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF

  10. Common Mission Network • There is NO Common Mission Network for Afghanistan • NATO still has two (classified) networks (NS + IS) • National networks still used on tactical level • Germany • Canada • The Netherlands • However: • ISAF Secret (+Overtask + CXI) is the largest network throughout Afghanistan (with potentially more sites then the NATO static network) NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF

  11. Application Sources • NATO Applications • Free of charge and available to all nations • JOC Watch, JChat • NATO Application with COTS elements • NATO application free of charge but component needs investment from nation • JOIIS (MapInfo), iGeoSIT, BOM/COPLM (Maria) • COTS Applications • Requires significant investment from nation for procurement, maintenance and development (!) • JADOCS, WEBTAS, CIDNE • National Applications • Release and support issues (FMS, ITAR etc.) NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF

  12. Application Interoperability • As part of the CXI Phase 2 discussions NATO and the US have agreed to: NOT select a common set of applications but work on application/data operability • NATO (selected) applications will be used at HQ ISAF, IJC HQ and RC level. • National trusted/funded applications can be used at Tactical level • Individual connections between applications should be prevented as they are hard to manage. Interoperability servers should be used instead NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF

  13. Interoperability Points • Interoperability points will be setup to exchange information. • NATO will use COPLM/BOM server (MIPDEM compliant) • US will use the PAS Servers (Publish and Subscribe) • UK will use .... • One of the key applications that we need as “Common Mission Application” is XMPP based Chat in support of C2. • All nations have to agree on the protocol extensions so that we remain interoperable (e.g. security labels for x-domain chat, geo-whiteboarding extensions for map based collaboration).

  15. Way Ahead • Expansion of the Common Mission Network • More NATO/ISAF nations to extend the mission secret network • Achieve Data / Application Interoperability • CENTRIXS-ISAF Phase 2 • Define & implement interoperability points • Increase the use of web based access • Provide ISAF C2 • Interoperability Bus and ISAF COP (CUR 355 and 264) NATO UNCLASSIFIED Releasable to ISAF
