Secure SDI Demonstrated Live at GEOINT 2008

Me trying to talk and operate the GEOINT demo at the same time

We (The Carbon Project) took the stage in collaboration with CubeWerx at GEOINT 2008 in Nashville to highlight "Secure SDI" - and connected to live, secure services hundreds of miles with no problems (even though its always a bit stressful ;-).

The live demonstration on October 30 was conducted as part of the Emerging Technologies Showcase in the center of the Ryman Exhibit Hall of the Gaylord Opryland Resort - a really nice place.

The presentation featured emerging technology from both companies and highlighted how GEOINT systems can transform into agile customer-centric frameworks driven by trusted partnerships. Recent security technology advances for coalition, cross-border and regulatory interoperability between organizations were featured in the live demonstration.

The demonstration was based on a powerful security framework for Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). OGC SDI is a suite of standards used by government agencies around the world to promote digital geospatial data sharing and exploitation.

Secure SDI extensions for our CarbonArc PRO on ArcGIS desktop and the free Gaia 3.2 geospatial viewer were demonstrated to GEOINT attendees from around the world. The extensions provide unprecedented feature-level security, role-based access control and security by geographic areas in coordination with distributed security frameworks from CubeWerx, a leading provider of spatial data warehousing and OGC-compliant Web services software products. CubeWerx provides a Secure SDI server product (CubeWerx IMS) that acts as a “gatekeeper” and allows access control to OGC SDI resources.

Secure SDI products from The Carbon Project and CubeWerx products have been selected by multiple government customers and featured in many recent interoperability demonstrations.

Secure SDI products are available now. For more information contact info@thecarbonproject.com or visit www.thecarbonproject.com.
