Organizations can participate and reap the benefits of TSCP in five ways:
- Adoption of TSCP standards
- Membership in TSCP
- Attend TSCP Events
- Use TSCP Services
- Participate in member activities
How it works
TSCP manages committees, working groups, and projects that are dedicated to producing secure collaboration white papers, capabilities and specifications. Proof-of-concept and pilot testing is performed in the TSCP reference lab and member environments. Work is scheduled and strictly managed using conventional program management methodology.
Activity is performed by a mix of in-kind services from member companies and from paid TSCP employees and subcontractors. The committees, working groups, and projects are comprised of engineers, subject matter experts (SMEs), project managers and business managers.
Once specifications are released, TSCP makes them publicly available for widespread adoption by integrators, service providers, and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software vendors. TSCP is not itself a solution provider or software vendor.

Government Alignment Committee (GAC)
The GAC focuses on alignment of TSCP specifications and activities to government needs and requirements.
Export Control Working Group (ECWG)
The ECWG is a group of export control subject matter experts (SMEs) from the TSCP Platinum companies and government organizations working to ensure TSCP technical solutions are evaluated to meet export requirements.
Intellectual Property Working Group (IPWG)
The IPWG is a group of Intellectual Property (IP) Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from the TSCP Platinum companies working to ensure TSCP technical solutions are evaluated to meet IP requirements.
The TSCP Identity Federation project broadly focuses on the development of specifications that enable members of one organization to use their credentials to access information maintained in a separate security domain by a partnering organization.
Information Labeling and Handling
The TSCP Information Labeling and Handling (ILH) Framework specifications and implementation guidance documents bring together digital policy management, document labeling, access control, and rights management, allowing security requirements to be consistently enforced. The specifications are vendor agnostic and provide TSCP organizations and government agencies with various options for implementation.
TSCP Bridge Service
TSCP offers a public key infrastructure (PKI) bridge service, and is working to become cross-certified with the Federal PKI Bridge.
