The Cyber Security Architecture (CSA) Project will establish an overarching information technology infrastructure that will permit automated operations throughout the entire cyber terrain. This will be accomplished by implementing a security service orientated architecture that encompasses everything from CAF weapon systems to C2 and corporate enterprises.


Key features of the security architecture would include: an end-to-end design with a standardised and controlled environment; defence aligned with the cyberspace to eliminated seams and gaps across the enterprise; provide, all elements within the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with a seamless and integrated access to enterprise resources and as well as allow for secure information sharing with mission partners.
