Abstract : The Defense Information Systems Security Program (DISSP) was initiated at the request of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence). The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and the National Security Agency (NSA) agreed to cooperate in achieving eight security objectives: Security policy; Architecture; Standards and protocols; Accreditation procedures; Technology; Transition planning; Organizational improvement; and Products and services availability. Accordingly, a DISSP Office was established and among its responsibilities was the development of the Department of Defense (DoD) Goal Security Architecture (DGSA). The DISSP has since become a part of the CISS in DISA. The Center for Information System Security (CISS) assists DoD organizations in the transition of existing systems and in the development of new systems in accordance with the DGSA. Concurrent with the development of the DGSA, efforts were underway within DISA to define information system architectures for the Defense Information System (DIS).
