Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
OPSEC is a security integration platform that lets network administrators manage all aspects of security in an open extensible environment. OPSEC was originally created by Check Point Software, but has since become an industry-wide standard security framework. Over 150 partners offer OPSEC-compliant products.
OPSEC offers a complete set of interoperable security components to meet enterprise security requirements. A software development kit from Check Point is used to integrate security components with Check Point's FireWall-1/VPN-1. Any product that adheres to the OPSEC specification may be integrated.
The following security products and standards are integral parts of the OPSEC framework:
The OPSEC Alliance is dedicated to guaranteeing interoperability at the policy level among security applications. The alliance certifies products and OPSEC compliance so customers can be assured of product integration.
