Information States and Principles

This is work product on information states that I’m trying to capture in one graphic (click to make larger) Comments are welcome. Anybody with artistic capability invited to make it look better.


Synopsis: You have an inner ring of entities (usually people but could be systems) that interact with information. Information is either processed, stored, or transmitted for that interaction. In the next ring out there are expectations on that information we usually call the security requirements of confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The interaction underlying all of that is either simplex, duplex or transactional. There are two pieces I’m trying to address as to how conflict is represented as fight or flight as responses of the entities.
