DoD Creates a Secure, Virtualized Environment: Brief

Government workers and warfighters need to:
• Access information from multiple networked security classifications from a single client PC.
• View classified information on mobile clients in a variety of secure locations.
• Help prevent information leaks from PCs while increasing their assured information sharing.
• Reduce the number of PCs they have been using from three—or more—to one.

General Dynamics Trusted Virtual Environment (TVE) Desktop* allows the end user to simultaneously use different OSs, such as Microsoft Windows*, Linux*, and Solaris*, in different networked security classifications—such as Top Secret, Secret, and Unclassified.
• Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT), included in Intel® vPro™ technology, provides a hardware-based security foundation that enables high levels of protection for information stored, processed, and exchanged on PCs.
• Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT), also included in Intel vPro technology, provides hardware isolation, allowing several virtual environments to run securely on a single PC, increasing flexibility, performance, and system utilization.

This solution operates within a virtual environment, reducing IT costs while improving security. From a single PC, it gives workers and warfighters access to information critical to fulfilling the Department of Defense’s strategic and tactical missions.

Executive Summary
The Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) necessarily complex security requirements traditionally resulted in the physical separation of classified information onto different networks and computer systems. This created strong security, yet also created higher total costs and impeded access to necessary information. The DoD is addressing these issues with the TVE Desktop, a General Dynamics High Assurance Open Scalable Technology (G.H.O.S.T.)*, which features Intel TXT and Intel VT.
