NETWORK ENVIRONMENT (NNE), SPECIFICALLY NMCI, ONE-NET, IT21/ISNS, CANES, 
AND NGEN, AS WELL AS LEGACY NETWORKS/ASSETS THAT ARE TARGETED TO 
MIGRATE TO THE EXISTING NMCI/NGEN/ONE-NET ENVIRONMENT BY FY 2011.  THIS 
ALSO INCLUDES SYSTEMS TRANSPORTED BY THE IT21/ISNS/CANES ENVIRONMENT 
(E.G. SNAPS, NALCOMIS, NAVYCASH, NIAPS, NTCSS, ETC.) CATEGORY II - 
EXCEPTED NETWORKS/ASSETS THAT ARE OR THAT WILL BE RE-HOMED BEHIND THE 
NNWC CENTRALLY MANAGED EXCEPTED NETWORK IA/CND SUITES.

4. ACTION: THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES ARE PROVIDED FOR NAVY WIDE DAR

B. CATEGORY II NETWORKS/ASSETS WILL RESOURCE THEIR RESPECTIVE
   SOLUTION. IMPLEMENTATION WILL BE CONDUCTED BY PMW160 AND

   EFFICIENT ARCHITECTURE AND DEPLOYMENT PROCESS TO LEVERAGE

6. EVERY NETWORK IMPLEMENTING DAR ENCRYPTION WILL ENSURE THAT 100% OF 
ALL GOVERNMENT ASSETS WITH PERMANENT OR REMOVABLE MEDIA STORAGE 
CAPABILITY, WHETHER OPERATED IN A DISCONNECTED OR CONNECTED NETWORK 
MODE, ARE USING THE DAR ENCRYPTION SOLUTION.
ENTERPRISE-WIDE DEPLOYMENT OF THE DAR ENCRYPTION SOLUTION IS CRITICAL 
TO THE PROTECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION AND OTHER DON 
SENSITIVE INFORMATION.
