This guide applies to all DoD Component and Mission Partner enclave owners seeking to connect to the DISN. The "DISN" is defined in various documents and most recently in Joint Publication 1-02 Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms defines the DISN (ref h) as the "Integrated network, centrally managed and configured to provide long-haul information transfer services for all Department of Defense activities. It is an information transfer utility designed to provide dedicated point-to-point, switched voice and data, imagery, and video teleconferencing services." For the purposes of this document, the DISN CPG is only referring to DISA’s provided portion of DODIN transport. The "DODIN" is defined by Joint Publication 3-12, Joint Cyberspace Operation (ref i) as "the globally interconnected, end-to-end set of information capabilities, and associated processes for collecting, processing, storing, disseminating, and managing information on-demand to warfighters, policy makers, and support personnel, including owned and leased communications and computing systems and services, software (including applications), data, and security."

For definition of "enclave," refer to Committee on National Security Systems Instruction Number 4009, National Information Assurance (IA) Glossary as amended (ref j).
