George Kamis, chief technology officer for government markets at Forcepoint, wrote in a Nextgov article published Tuesday that using unclassified resources and cross-domain platforms to develop code for deployment in classified environments could bring tangible benefits to the Department of Defense.

He said a cross-domain platform could help DoD facilitate data transfer and communication between classified and unclassified networks.

“Cross-domain solutions can scan and validate data prior to any of that data being pushed to a classified network, ensuring that the data is correct and safe to pass,“ Kamis wrote. “Additionally, it can validate new transport specifications, such as Cross Domain Unstructured Data Exchange (CDUX), to establish that the data has originated from a trusted source.“

Adopting an approach that allows developers to code in unclassified environments using cross-domain tools can help DoD attract top talent and speed up onboarding of software developers.

“DevSecOps shifts this balance and makes government work more attractive,“ Kamis wrote. “By using resources in an unclassified environment, people can be brought on-board immediately and jump right into the development process, while accessing the same caliber of tools that can be found in the hyper-competitive commercial tech world.“
