WHAT IS A CROSS DOMAIN SOLUTION?
Government information systems are connected to a variety of networks, each controlled by different security policies. These domains are isolated from
each other, typically to protect sensitive/ classified information and network resources. A Cross Domain Solution enables users to securely access
or share information between these differently classified networks.
The Cross-domain COLlaboration Technology (CCOLT) Program Management Office (PMO), hosted by the Information Handling Branch at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL/RIEB), creates solutions for secure single domain and cross-domain sharing of information, to enable effective collaboration in multiple types of environments.
