Telos Secure Directory creates a cross-domain, cross-organizational directory of contact information for staff, contractors, and coalition partners.  It ensures that only authorized personnel can access information and communicate with specific personnel, departments, and offices.
 

Telos Secure Directory is a standards-based infrastructure that supports the development of a dynamically updated, highly searchable repository of contact and related information about staff, contractors, and visitors.

Its capabilities include local directory management and integration, system management, and support for integration with a distributed environment. Its operations can be extended to other servers for virtually unlimited scalability and interoperability across many directories within an organization. And, it complies with open standards to interface with a wide variety of legacy and future applications.

Purpose-designed to meet the most demanding customer requirements, Telos Secure Directory serves as a single point of reference and update for identity, contact, and related information.

Telos Secure Directory is optimized for high performance search in the most demanding environments:

Keeps multiple directories in synch across multiple applications and boundaries -- Organizations can integrate multiple disparate directories to reduce the technical, political and organizational issues created by directory implementations.


Telos Secure Directory can synchronize data from one directory server to another as well as completely provision employee and other information.

Employs approximate matching strategies to ensure successful searches -- including full integration of the US Defense and NATO Word Nomenclature and the NATO APP6A Mapping Symbols.  

Single sign on simplifies logon management, reducing maintenance costs -- eliminates the need for administrators to maintain user authentication credentials, enables personnel to maintain their own contact information

Access controls protect privacy and sensitive information -- XACML-based access control and attribute-based access control (ABAC) allow multiple partners to set their own access authorization policies

The Telos Secure Directory uses ABAC to offer fine-grained and context-aware access control that adapts to dynamically changing needs.

Fine-grained and context-aware access control adapts to dynamically changing needs -- protects sensitive information and provides a delegated administration model to allow a number of authorized users to make differing levels of updates

Policy tools simplify administration and enforcement -- Easy updates whenever names, roles, and organizations change; drag-and-drop to make updates in a matter of minutes

User-friendly Web client for content access, creation and editing -- Offers an effective platform to rapidly develop and edit dynamic Web-based content, integrate and manage a variety of Web-based and corporate social network functionality

Border directories and directory guards enable secure data sharing -- fully tested and deployed in both roles as part of a number of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff CWID (Coalition Wide Area Demonstration) programs.

Scalable to tens of millions of entries in a single directory server -- no restrictions on the size or number of attributes, depth of the directory information tree, or the number of connected users.

Supports LDAP, X.500 and XML environments -- an XML Enabled Directory (XED) that stores, manages and transmits XML format data while continuing to support existing LDAP and X.500 clients.
