Secure Cloud Computing Architecture Landing Zone

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Secure Cloud Computing Architecture (SCCA) for the United States Department of Defense (DOD) uses a framework of cloud native services that helps make security compliance and cloud adoption for mission-critical workloads easier, faster, and more cost effective.

SCCA is a DOD security framework designed to provide a standard approach for boundary and application-level security for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Impact Level 4 and 5 data hosted in commercial cloud environments.

Oracle Cloud Native SCCA Landing Zone provides a framework for securely running DOD mission workloads and storing Impact Level 2, 4, and 5 data in OCI government regions. The automation provided by the solution enables DOD mission owners to establish a compliant security architecture in a few hours or days instead of months. It uses cloud native infrastructure services, accelerating the time to deploy mission critical workloads by reducing the time required to define the architecture and minimizing decision points.

The Oracle Cloud Native SCCA Landing Zone includes baseline configurations, rules, and templates that meet DISA Impact Level 2, 4, and 5 accreditation requirements. This is delivered using a standardized infrastructure as code (IaC) template that meets a set of SCCA controls in a simplified and repeatable way. Based on Terraform, OCI landing zones let you perform one click, best-practice deployments of multiple Oracle services at once. You can launch the templates from the Cloud Native SCCA Landing Zone, answer a few questions about your configuration, and have an architecture set up the same day.

The following diagram illustrates the SCCA Landing Zone architecture.
