“Advanced architecture of the Integrated IT Platform with high security level” is a development project within the area of the homeland security. The results of the project are intended to be used by a Polish Law Enforcement Authority. The goal of the project is to develop the architecture of a network and application IT environment for secure, reliable, efficient and scalable processing and storing data by current and future applications and services. Additionally, a clear migration path from the current infrastructure must be provided. Together with the increasing demand on the network bandwidth, expected growth of the multimedia mobile applications and with particular respect to strict security requirements it raises numerous IT security challenges. In this paper we would like to describe how security was addressed within the project and how external research, our own experience, and results of ther similar research projects (including those from the homeland security area) have been combined to provide the maximum possible protection level. We hope that the described approach may be used at least as an initial pattern in other similar initiatives.
