Abstract : Assessing Controlled Access Protection provides guidance to the Department of Defense components charged with ensuring that the automated information systems (AISs) used for processing sensitive or classified information provide at least controlled access protection. The objectives of this guideline and its supporting documentation set are: (1) To provide a methodology for performing a technical analysis to support the certification of controlled access protection in AISs submitted for accreditation; (2) To provide an interim approach for achieving controlled access protection until a suitable NSA evaluated product is available; and (3) To clarify the intent, security functionality, and level of assured protection that controlled access protection provides.
