DescriptionWhile the current defense-in-depth architecture has protected DoD data from adversaries in the past by placing various security products at multiple tiered locations, it has created silo’ed security architectures across NIPR and SIPR. The purpose of Thunderdome is to create a new zero trust security and network architecture that is dynamic, adaptable and can be extended from the user to the data edge. There are a lot of ways to describe zero trust, but there are three big, basic tenets of modern zero trust implementations: verify the user AND the device, make access and privileges conditional, and lastly, verify the data and applications explicitly. The bottom line is that it is data centric, and multi-attribute confidence levels enable authentication under the concept of least privileged access, which directly gets after the DoD Modernization Strategy.
