DoD IT Future: JIE Target Objective State

JIE: A secure joint information environment, comprising a shared IT infrastructure, enterprise services, and a single security architecture to achieve full spectrum superiority, improve mission effectiveness, increase security and realize IT efficiencies. JIE is operated and managed per Unified Command Plan using enforceable standards, specifications, and common tactics, techniques, and procedures. Optimized Enterprise Information Environment: • Single joint platform—Standardized for all DoD missions • Secure, trusted connections—Protected by a single security architecture • Cloud based information resources reachable by authorized mobile devices • Access by credentialed users eliminating anonymity from the network • Interconnected mesh of fixed and wireless transport • Converged communications, computing and enterprise services • Consists of both commercial and government computing centers • Big data analytics and storage • Reduced attack surface—Efficient mission partner access • Data and applications in the Cloud • MLS Thin Client 10 | MIT 18.3

Consider an objective end state for JIE that is “comprised of a single, secure operational environment that provides a means to reach any necessary data source or set of applications necessary to conduct missions while simultaneously providing a set of enterprise based services available on-demand to all authorized DoD users and mission partners, in garrison and deployed, regardless of device or connection type.�

Major Components and Capability Areas The JIE will normalize the DoD’s communication (NNT) and capabilities (Enterprise Services and Unified Capabilities) … managed by a standard operations center (GEOC/EOC) and data center (CDC), secured through single security stacks (SSA) … that are accessed through common access capabilities (IdAM) … having unlimited and secure access across cross domains and partners (Gateways) and full mobility access (Mobility) … governed by common policies and TTPs. Network Normalization Transport (NNT) • Common Network Standards and TTPs Single Security Architecture Enterprise Operations (GEOC/EOC) Data Center Consolidation • Core Data Centers (CDC) • Installation Processing Nodes (IPN) • Standards and Design Identity and Access Management (IdAM) • Dynamic access and Entity Discovery • Activity Monitoring • Contributes to Mission Partner Environment Enterprise Services • Common IT apps, Unified Capabilities (UC) for messaging, voice, video Mobility • Common carrier, local area networks, Classified/unclassified Gateways • Internet, Mission Partner, Mobility, Tactical Governance • Aligns process to Department’s requirements, budgeting and acquisition process

• JIE is an operational imperative and necessity in today’s resource constrained environment • JIE is focused on enterprise standards and interoperable solutions • JIE will result in increased mission effectiveness, security, and efficiencies

Joint Information Environment Benefits Mission Effectiveness • Rapidly and dynamically respond to and support changing mission information needs for all operational scenarios • Users and systems will have timely and secure access to the data and services needed to accomplish their assigned missions, regardless of their location • Users and systems can trust their connection from end to end with the assurance that their activity will not be compromised • Mitigate threats and maintain our ability to operate through a cyberevent Increased Security • Can operate, monitor and defend DoD’s IT assets to attain and maintain information dominance • We’ll know who’s on the network, what they’re doing, and we can prove it IT Efficiencies • Information assets are available for joint use, leveraged by all military departments to meet mission requirements • A consistent IT architecture supports effective fielding of department capabilities • DoD has renewed visibility about its IT expenditures through increased budget transparency JIE: ENHANCING THE NATION’S STRATEGIC FLEXIBILITY
