A White Paper by Carver Pace and Kalai Kandasamy, NetCentrics Corp
The Joint Regional Security Stack (JRSS) is a joint cyber war fighting platform. According to the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the JRSS is a stack of equipment that performs firewall functions, intrusion detection and prevention, enterprise management, virtual routing and forwarding (VRF), and provides a host of network security capabilities to defend and operate the network and respond to threats. JRSS adapts a defense-in-depth concept with a two-tier architecture with separate equipment in each tier.
