Gaon, David and Lang, Ruth E. and Lowrance, John D. and Cohen, Philip R. Application of Artificial Intelligence to the DOD Directory, in Proceedings of MILCOM ’92, 1992.
The US Department of Defense (DoD) is planning for the implementation of a DoD directory capability based on CCITT recommendations X.500-X.521, which define the data communication networks directory. The functional and operational requirements that define the DoD directory will yield a system with a significant level of comlexity. Problems and barriers which impede progress toward the envisioned DoD directory service exist. The authors describe these problems and the artificial-intelligence-based approach developed to solve and reduce them in order to achieve a usable, capable, secure, and manageable DoD directory service.
