Mission Context: 
Maritime Information Sharing Environment
Initiative Description: 

Enabling the free flow of information. The Maritime Information Sharing Environment (MISE) as defined in the National Maritime Architecture Plan enables secure, standardized sharing of maritime information among a wide variety of federal, state, and local agencies as well as international participants.

Providing secure access to information. The design of MISE interface security has followed a number of patterns used in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Global Federated Identity and Privilege Management (GFIPM).

Providing network, data, and application services. MISE employs NIEM-M exchange models, representational state transfer (REST) services for publishing/consuming, and attribute-based access control to facilitate information sharing and safeguarding with non-provisioned users.

Optimizing investment. MISE optimizes investment through the aggregate of the above contributions.
