Lean Services is a buzz phrase I have been increasingly hearing in secure information exchange circles recently. But what is actually meant by Lean Services?
The Lean Services Architecture is an open schema-based request/response and event message protocol combined with a supporting architecture that provides a Services Orientated Architecture (SOA) in the operational and tactical military domain. Within Lean Services, a schema defines the data exchange messages for a service (Lean Services Definition). To provide access to each service an adaptor is used to transform native message formats into on-the-wire lean services. In a cross domain context, a set of rules that must be adhered to are defined, which are called the Barrier Validation Rules.
