  Objective:  Develop enhancements to existing UDDI V3 standards and/or extensions to COTs products to support the Navy’s requirement to federate multiple registries in its unique low bandwidth and disconnected environment.
  Description:  Current COTS UDDI vendors do not support Dynamic Federation of Registries in the Navy’s unique distributed, disconnected, and low limit bandwidth environment. Furthermore, there is also a need for SOA Policy Enforcement and Policy Administration Management Services across the federated UDDI registries, to fulfill governance, security and information assurance requirements.

  PHASE I: Investigate the feasibility to enhance the current UDDI V3 standards, architectural recommendations, and/or extensions to existing UDDI products and SOA Policy Management Services to support federation requirements between afloat and ashore networks
  PHASE II: Develop, integrate and test a prototype system based on the recommendation provided in Phase I. Provide Technology Demonstration of the prototype system

  PHASE III: Products/Capabilities derived as a result of positive Phase II demonstration, will be incorporated as capabilities into the CANES Increment 1 (ISNS Increment III) POR. These capabilities will be documented incorporated in the CANES Increment 1 CPD and other relevant acquisition documents, in support of development, integration, testing, deployment and support. PRIVATE SECTOR COMMERCIAL POTENTIAL/

  DUAL-USE APPLICATIONS: Enhanced next generation UDDI standard to include the Dynamic Federation capability and disconnect/low bandwidth strategies.
