Abstract : Maintaining adequate security standards for classified documents in military information systems is of eminent importance. Handling commercially sensitive information requires similar precautions. Basically, there are two approaches to solve these problems: 1) to produce and operate a classified database, in which case national and NATO security regulations must be observed in handling documents and the references to these documents; and 2) or to work with an unclassified database which contains only unclassified information, in which case the references to classified documents have to be kept unclassified. This paper discusses questions related to preparing unclassified references to classified documents, deals with release procedures, and with problems related to housekeeping problems.
