Information Sharing:
Global Information Sharing Toolkit (GIST)
Whether you are tackling a justice information sharing business problem, targeting a general area of interest, or looking for a specific Global publication, the GIST has an answer. This tool is designed to give you options for locating the best solutions. From developing a privacy policy to establishing a fusion center to seeking guidance on First Amendment rights or implementing Global Reference Architecture standards, Global is ready to help!
National Information Exchange Model (NIEM)
NIEM is a partnership of the U.S. Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Health and Human Services. It is designed to develop, disseminate, and support enterprise-wide information exchange standards and processes that can enable jurisdictions to effectively share critical information in emergency situations, as well as support the day-to-day operations of agencies throughout the nation. NIEM enables information sharing, focusing on information exchanged among organizations as part of their current or intended business practices. The NIEM exchange development methodology results in a common semantic understanding among participating organizations and data formatted in a semantically consistent manner. NIEM will standardize content (actual data exchange standards), provide tools, and managed processes. 
Global Reference Architecture (GRA)
The GRA is an information exchange solution designed to cut 80 percent of implementation time and costs for state and local justice agencies through reuse of established promising practices in IT architecture and design.
Global Federated Identity and Privilege Management (GFIPM)
The GFIPM framework provides the justice community and partner organizations with a standards-based approach for implementing federated identity. The concept of globally understood metadata across federation systems is essential to GFIPM interoperability. Just as a common Extensible Markup Language (XML) data model was the key to data interoperability, a standard set of XML elements and attributes about a federation user's identities, privileges, and authentication can be universally communicated. The GFIPM metadata and framework support the following three major interoperability areas of security in the federation: Identification/Authentication; Privilege Management; and Audit.
