Visionary Panel – Using Mobile to Enhance the Government Mission

As Federal agencies develop mobile capabilities, what impact does mobility have on the agency’s mission? How can legacy applications and tools be augmented by mobile solutions? What game-changing mobile solutions have been developed and implemented by Federal agencies? This panel will examine how mobile technologies and solutions are used by government agencies to boost mission efficiency and effectiveness.

MITRE-ATARC Mobile Collaboration Symposium

MITRE-ATARC Mobile Collaboration Symposium

The MITRE-ATARC Mobile Collaboration Symposium features discussion and white-boarding between government and industry subject matter experts in a small-group setting. The outcomes of these sessions will be compiled in a White Paper with recommendations to the government.

MOBILE CHALLENGE AREAS

1. Mobile Health
Hosted by the DoD-VA Interagency Program Office (DoD-VA IPO), this session will focus on Mobile Health challenges and solutions within the Federal Government. One of the biggest challenges within the healthcare community is secure authentication and authorization of mobile applications, which provide access to Electronic Health Records (EHRs). Both DoD and VA are required to follow Federal Mandated PKI Policy to protect FOUO information. Common Access Card (CAC) and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) hard tokens require additional hardware and middleware to provide authentication and authorization services. NIST released the initial draft guidance on Digital Identity (https://pages.nist.gov/800-63-3/sp800-63-3.html) on 30 January 2017 which could be leveraged here.

1) Should DoD/VA leverage the NIST Digital Identity Guidelines to provide necessary Identity and Access Management Solution (ID&AM) for healthcare related mobile applications?

2) Are there any other Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) techniques which could be leveraged (e.g., derived credentials, biometrics (fingerprints, retina scan etc.), soft token etc.)?

Government Lead

2. Mobile Application Security
Mobile application security is a broad topic that spans many areas to include application development, app stores, vetting, sandboxing and management. Understanding what government agencies and industry is doing in this space and where problems are occurring, is an important part of improving the security posture of our mobile devices. In this session, we will be discussing end-to-end strategies for security that span the lifecycle of an application.

3. Tactical Mobility
The average American has more functionality in their pocket then warfighter do during daily operations and combat. Mobile computing is part of everyday life for most but getting the functionalities taken for granted, like phone calls, messaging, email, and navigation, in too the hands of the warfighter is not an easy task. For years, the Department of Defense (DoD) was at the leading edge on innovation but that now has shifted to the commercial market leading the defense industry. Using commercial products, instead of custom made component the DoD can save money. But how do you secure a product that anyone change buy off the shelf so that it doesn’t put the warfighter in danger? The same issues that face the DoD also apply to First Responder during daily operations and disaster relief. This session will explore the challenges organizations face of taking commercial mobile devices and deploying them in secure tactical environment and discuss the mobile use cases from the field, lessons learned and best practices in tactical mobility.

4. Mobile Roadmap
Identifying a Mobile Roadmap is essential for effective mobility deployment/adoption in an organization due to the increasing complexity of mobile solutions, and the fast evolution of mobile technology.  This session will explore the definition of a mobile digital workspace, and help refine a high-level mobility roadmap for agencies to use in their planning.

5. Mobile Innovation
The adoption of mobile technologies has been an extremely disruptive force in how we conduct our everyday lives.  Whether its depositing checks with our phones or never needing a paper map – our lives today are vastly different than they were a decade ago. As new technologies start to penetrate the federal IT space they will drastically change how employees and the federal government conduct business. This session will explore upcoming technologies with the greatest potential for disruption, and evaluate the benefits and challenges they will present. A copy of the Mobile Technology Roadmap from the October 4th, 2016 summit will be available for reference, although, technologies are by no means limited to ones on this roadmap.
