Subject: XchangeCore 2.0 In Action: Don't Miss This "Virtual Core" Exchange Demo

XchangeCore Communicator

Improve your information exchange
Improve your emergency response

October 21, 2014




Following up on our previous webinar introducing the next version of the XchangeCore Web Service Data Orchestration, this XchangeCore Webinar will show you the most impressive feature of the release, Intra-Core Exchange.  This new capability allows one physical core to establish multiple "virtual" cores for secure and independent exchange among authorized groups.  Join us for this dynamic webinar on October 23 at noon ET.



As the illustration above shows, exchanges previously took place among applications connected to a core and then from core to core.  Now, XchangeCore 2.0 Intra-Core Agreements allow groups to be established (the green triangles) on a single core which have all the same exchange agreement capabilities of a physical core. Exchange rules still allow for all applications connected to a core to exchange incidents but new rules now allow exchange only among users/applications within a group, or users/applications directly without regard to group, as well as from group to group (the red dotted lines).  The combination of these rules - including the new proximity rule which allows for exchange based on distance of an incident from an XchangeCore location - provide incredible flexibility to hone your exchange to exactly the right organizations and applications you want.


These advanced exchange capabilities are brought to you by a collaboration of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Defense (DOD), and the private sector. DHS was the originator of XchangeCore (then known as UICDS) through early development and pilot deployment in many locations to assure its real-world utility. DOD's Mission Assurance, Threat Assessment, Response and Recovery program took over development about two years ago and introduced many new capabilities including "virtual" cores and the Microsoft® SQL Express database for the Windows® version. Private investment has added to XchangeCore performance on the Linux® operating system.


All these advances bring you XchangeCore 2.0 and the most important operational capability, Intra-Core Agreements, will be demonstrated on October 23 at noon ET.


Be part of the XchangeCore Community Webinar to see a live demonstration of the intra-core exchange feature of XchangeCore 2.0 and how learn how you can get the software for your own use.



Join us on Thursday at noon ET to learn more about XchangeCore and, of course, our always popular Open Mic where you can ask anything about anything.

This Is How You Learn and Stay In Touch

XchangeCore Connector Development 101

Learn everything you need to make quick work of connecting your applications to XchangeCore.  You'll learn how to access example code on GitHub and how to use it to get your organizations exchanging key data with other agencies and the private sector.

Developing an XchangeCore Implementation Plan for Multiple Agencies

This session provides a guide to working with agencies with which you need to exchange information, coming up with a plan that is achievable, and taking the steps needed to get the job done quickly and efficiently.  Based on experience with many installations, this session helps you get started.

XchangeCore and IPAWS

The Integrated Public Alerting and Warning System (IPAWS) is run by the federal government to deliver warnings to the American public.  XchangeCore connects its Common Alerting Protocol web service to IPAWS to allow effective exchange between IPAWS and XchangeCore.  Learn how to make this happen.

Moving Data Through XchangeCore

This will be a two-part webinar examining how data moves through XchangeCore from an operations perspective and a technical perspective.  The operations webinar will show you how to integrate XchangeCore information flows into your planning and response.  The technical webinar describes the process used by the various web services to move data from external applications, through XchangeCore, and out to other applications.


Our most recent XchangeCore Webinar introduced XchangeCore 2.0, the next evolution of two important DHS and DOD information exchange programs.  We learned about three key improvements made by the DHS-DOD collaboration.


COMMUNICATION:  XchangeCore 2.0 improved core-to-core communication. This "handshake" does a much better job of assuring that messages intended for a remote core are received.  This is especially important on less-than-reliable networks.  Now, XchangeCore 2.0 adds an additional check for receipt on a remote core and if not confirmed, an additional notification of the availability of the new or updated work product is provided for the remote core.  



"VIRTUAL" CORES:  Intra-Core exchange agreements allow a single physical core to contain multiple "virtual" cores, each with their own independent agreements.  These Intra-Core Agreements allow the following exchange rules to be created:  To a remote core; To an organization on the owning or remote core; To a specific application or user on the owning or remote core; To a specific application or user within a logical group on the owning or remote core; To an organization on the owning or remote core; To a specific application or user on the owning or remote core; To a specific application or user within an organization on the owning or remote core; and combinations of the above.


MANAGEMENT TOOLS:  The new Management Console that accompanies XchangeCore 2.0 has many important features that help to better operate a core and complete the new Intra-Core Agreements.

The new Management Console uses a web interface for: 


Checking other shared cores status

Viewing incidents and alerts

Managing users and groups 

Defining business rules between groups, users and other XchangeCores

Developed using _javascript_, the console becomes an important source of example code for developers when the code is released into the XchangeCore Open Source Repository.

The XchangeCore 2.0 Management Console ships with XchangeCore 2.0 which is operated by a not-for-profit corporation for the benefit of the information exchange and sharing user community. The XchangeCore Community is open to anyone: individuals and organizations, public and private sector, for-profit corporations and nongovernmental organizations. The XchangeCore Community welcomes the private sector as technology providers and stewards of the country's critical infrastructure.  For responder agencies, installation of XchangeCore executable code is available at no cost as part of a program sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security.  To determine your eligibility for the no-cost version of XchangeCore, complete the registration on the XchangeCore tab of XchangeCore.org.

Join us for the XchangeCore Webinar Series

Don't forget to join us every other Thursday at noon for the XchangeCore Webinar and "Open Mic" call.  Join Technology Providers and End-Users who discuss all the value they get - and sometimes the problems they have - in getting XchangeCore implemented in an area.  This is the frank, no-holds-barred discussion to help get everyone operating better and at lower cost in time and money than they probably could do alone.  Nobody who participates walks away without a tip, an idea, or a good sense of how to proceed with XchangeCore information exchange.
