Defense Industrial Base: Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources Sector-Specific Plan as input to the National Infrastructure Protection Plan   [open pdf - 3MB]

"This Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Sector-Specific Plan (SSP), developed in collaboration with industry and government security partners, provides sector-level critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR) protection guidance. The DIB SSP outlines the Department of Defense (DoD) approach to executing Sector-Specific Agency (SSA) responsibilities assigned by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 (HSPD-7), Critical Infrastructure Identification, Prioritization, and Protection, December 17, 2003, and follows the 2006 CI/KR Protection SSP Guidance established by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It complements other DoD critical infrastructure policy. This section describes the DIB Sector and the taxonomy used to classify the DIB products and services. It identifies security partners in government and the private sector, and discusses their roles and responsibilities. The section includes the DIB Sector's goals and desired long-term security posture and provides a value proposition for security partners. This section discusses the information parameters, requirements, and methodologies that DoD and the DIB owners/operators use to identify their assets, systems, networks, and critical functionality. The section focuses on the process to identify those assets, systems, networks, and functions that, if damaged, would result in unacceptable consequences to the DoD mission, national economic security, public health and safety, or public confidence."
