Navigating the Standards Landscape Andrew Owen, SEARCH Lt. Scott Edson, L.A. County Sheriff Navigating the Standards Landscape The Business Case: How do standards help the practitioner to develop an information sharing architecture? Data Exchange Standards: XML, JXDM and NIEM IEPDs and Components Los Angeles County Case Study LEITSC Functional Standards for Law Enforcement Records Management and CAD How Do I Connect the Silos? Here is the Help!

2 The Business Case - What Standards Provide On-demand real time data access by decision makers Standard products from vendors at lower cost Opportunity to leverage legacy system investment Phased evolution to emerging technologies approach If you care about PUBLIC SAFETY, standards are important because these standards can help you deliver emergency services more quickly, with greater dependability If you care about ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE PUBLICS MONEY, standards are important

because they will help to significantly lower the lifecycle cost of sharing data 3 Justice & Public Safety Standards Landscape No Domain-wide standards prior to September 11, 2001 Each agency re-defined, and each vendor reinvented the wheel with every project Evident and growing need to lower cost, reduce risk, speed delivery and ensure compatibility Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD5) to improve information sharing 2005 Justice and Homeland Security partnership to develop National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) Executive Order 13388 (replaced EO 13356) 4

Data Exchange Standards: XML Receiving System Processes the data Parser Reads the data XML Schema defines the structure of the data Data from System1 Data from System 2 Data from

System 3 Data from System 4 5 Data Exchange Standards: XML XML provides a natural way to build new vocabularies or languages XML tools (parsers, validators, native XML databases) are abundant, relatively inexpensive and can support any and every vocabulary that conforms to the XML standard XML allows us to express information in a way that is platform independent 6

Data Exchange Standards: XML XML can represent all parts of the information exchange Information that needs to be shared; Information about this information (who created it, when, why, etc.); Information about destination of this information (addressing, routing); Security and authorization information (sensitivity level, who can read it, how it should be disposed of, etc.); Validation and verification rules (XML schema, DTD, business rules) 7 Justice XML Examples Excerpt from a Criminal History Record (Rap Sheet)

JXDM provides fairly large objects, reflecting the broad scope of the effort and attempts to accommodate needs of everyone across the wide spectrum JXDM includes constructs not native to criminal justice, such as health or intelligence created without a benefit of the subject matter expertise 10 JXDM Evolution Communities of Interest Data Dictionary Reconciliation: LegalXML, RISS, and RAP AAMVA

NIEM aggregates knowledge from multiple domains, where each community of interest (COI) maintains its own domain and contributes to the common set; NIEM, having much broader audience in mind from the beginning, took a different approach than the JXDM to develop core objects: Start with smallest, universally understood and usable; Specialize for the particular exchanges, common to some or many; Provide a space for additional specialization relevant to a specific area 14 National Information Exchange Model

The minimum supported set for all participating domains; universally understood; very stable; minimal or no subsetting Core: jointly governed through the NIEM governing body 15 NIEM Data Component Represent real-world objects and concepts Person Address DOB Name

IEP Documentation (IEPD) describes how that

exchange should be expressed using the NIEM. The IEPD is a key point for introducing new elements to NIEM and for reusing existing ones. An IEPD itself can also be reused in whole or in part to speed development and lower the cost of sharing information. 22 The Value of IEPDs Establish standards to ensure semantic interoperability Interoperability can dramatically reduce the cost and risk of implementing

information exchanges Interoperability increases agility 23 IEPDs as Standards IEPD 24 JXDM and NIEM Specifications Biometrics (ANSI-NIST ITL-2006) FBI Electronic Fingerprint Transmission Specification (EFTS) Uniform Rap Sheet NCIC 2000 Sex Offender, Serious Violent Offender,
