WHITE PAPER: Govnet: An Architecture for a More Secure Federal Civilian Network

In a new white paper sponsored by Northrup Grumman, CGA makes the case for "GOVNET."

Summary:  For almost two decades, Federal cybersecurity leaders have debated the merits of consolidating 100+ Federal civilian agency networks into a single, federated enterprise network. This concept was dubbed “Govnet” in the Bush Administration. While at that time the technology to implement the proposal was in its infancy, today advances in networking provide a practical approach.  This paper reviews the feasibility and benefits of creating Govnet today to provide a sound basis for discussion as the Trump Administration and Congress consider next steps to secure Federal information systems.  Download the full white paper.
