National security spec advances

Monday, 29 March 2004, 11:49 AM EST

A group of technology companies and government agencies this week will unveil an open specification for securely sharing sensitive information across heterogeneous networks in times of crisis.

The framework already has been implemented in some locations and could eventually be rolled out internationally, giving participants a trustworthy channel for exchanging data with peers, according to project officials.

Developed by Regional Alliances for Infrastructure and Network Security, or RAINS, OSIS (Open Specification for Information Sharing) relies on Web services for the exchange of information. RAINS will operate a UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration) registry for participants and plans to accredit each system before it is brought into the program.
