TOP SECRET INTRANET
How U.S. Intelligence Built INTELINK - The World's Largest, Most Secure Network
The never-before-published story of Intelink
An inside look at the U.S. Intelligence Community's worldwide, super-secure intranet
The U.S. Intelligence Community has built one awesome intranet. "Intelink" integrates and disseminates virtually every piece of information that goes into intelligence gathering, reporting, and analysis at the CIA, NSA, Defense Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, FBI, and eight other top secret agencies to their "customers" - from the White House to the Warfighter. It's just about as secure as intranets can be. Now, for the first time, here's the inside story of how they did all that. Sure, there are a few things they can't tell you, but what they can tell you is utterly fascinating - especially if you've got your own intranet to build or manage.
* Building a maximum-security extranet to connect multiple independent organizations
* Implementation: what went smoothly - and what didn't
* Case studies: extending Intelink to new intelligence agencies and customers
* Security: encryption and access control issues
* U.S. Government network security efforts
* Cooperation with foreign governments
* Relevance to business covered in every chapter
* Future intranet tools
Someday your intranet will handle terabytes of data; Intelink is doing it right now. Discover how they've made their intranet secure, integrating HTML, SGML, XML, metadata, pull and push technologies, and collaboration tools to get exactly the right data to the right people at the right time. Then preview the U.S. Intelligence Community's revolutionary strategic plans for managing this information - and discover how you can use the same ideas to achieve competitive advantage. There's even a CD-ROM containing a demo of the actual Intelink interface, plus demo software, tools, metadata standards, training, and other information straight from Intelink. So put on your trenchcoat and dark glasses: you're going inside!About the Author:
