The MCWRAC mission is to ensure that publicly accessible, non-restricted, Marine Corps World Wide Web sites are protected against malicious activities intended to deny, degrade, or disrupt public access to Marine Corps web sites or modify the content in any way.


Protected Distribution Systems (PDS)

It must provide adequate electrical, electromagnetic, and physical safeguards to deter exploitation. All PDSs must be verified to be compliant by a certified tempest technical authority (CTTA) and accredited by the service Authorizing Official (AO) for connection and operation.
