WGISS recognizes the need and opportunity to develop a knowledge base of our experiences and ideas related to the issue of security. The purpose of this section is to provide a repository of WGISS content related to security and a platform for collaboration and discussion on topics related to security.

Resource Title Partner Description
Security in EO Systems – WGISS Whitepaper WGISS This paper was written by WGISS as a result of a series of presentations on IT security in EO systems.  It provides an overview of IT security, including a summary of threats, challenges to meeting those threats and captures the state of practice in the EO community.
Security: “Best Practice” Insights from the IDN IDN This paper offers some insight into experiences that the IDN has had in addressing its security risks.  Experiences include the usage of OGC services and it offers a set of “Best Practices”, based on their experience.
NASA ECHO Security Lessons Learned NASA/ECHO This presentation makes the case for the need to address security within the EO community.  A series of threats are identified and ECHO’s responses to those threats are described.
Security in the Earth Observations Infrastructure CNES This presentation outlines how the development process at CNES incorporates the need for security.  It identifies the role of the CNES ISS team within the phases of system development.
Security and the Open Geospatial Consortium OGC This presentation discusses the OGC perspective on security.  A set of web service security standards are presented, and it lays out the strategy for incorporating them in planned OWS initiatives.
SensorWebs and Security Experiences NASA This presentation addresses some of the impacts of securing sensor webs.  Topics discussed include the federated model for user authentication and authorization and an experiment using OpenID.
