information protection

Definition/Scope: Provide protection for the information passing over networks from the time it is stored and catalogued until it is distributed to the users, operators, and decision makers. Information protection is accomplished with a full range of security means. External and internal perimeter protection prevents unknown users or data from entering a network. External means include communications security; router filtering/access control lists, and security guards. Where necessary, physical isolation or barriers are placed between protected and unprotected networks. Internal perimeter protection consists of firewalls and router filters. These serve as barriers between echelons or functional communities. JP 6-0 and FM 3-13
