 ===== What is UAF? ===== ===== What is UAF? =====
-UAF extends ​the scope of UPDM and generalizes it to make it applicable to industry, federal, and military architectures. The core concepts in the UAF are based on: +The Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) is an architecture framework that provides visualization for specific stakeholders concerns through engineering domains organized by various views. The views are artifacts for visualizing,​ understanding,​ and assimilating ​the broad scope and complexities ​of an architecture description through tabular or graphical means. 
-  * DoDAF 2.0.2 Domain Metamodel ​(DM2) +UAFP enables the extraction of specified ​and custom views from an integrated architecture description (AD) in support of a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach. The views describe a system from a set of stakeholders'​ concerns such as security or information. The UAFP specification supports ​the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF2.02, the Ministry of Defence Architecture Framework ​(MODAF)Security Views from Canada'​s Department of National Defense Architecture Framework (DNDAF) ​and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Architecture Framework (NAF) v 4. The core concepts in the UAF domain metamodel used to specify the UAFP are based upon the DoDAF 2.0.2 Domain Metamodel ​(DM2) and the MODAF ontological data exchange mechanism (MODEM, which is intended to provide the basis for the next version of NAF). The intent is to provide a standard representation ​for AD support for Industry, Government, and Defense Organizations. ADs as part of their Systems Engineering (SE) technical processes. UAFP  supports ​the capability to: 
-  * MODAF ontological data exchange mechanism (MODEM) +  
-  * Security Views from Canada'​s Department of National Defense Architecture Framework (DNDAF) +  * model architectures for a broad range of complex systems, which may include hardware, software, data, personnel, and facility elements; 
-  * North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Architecture Framework (NAF) v4 +  * model consistent architectures for system-of-systems ​(SoSdown to lower levels of design and implementation
-DoDAF, MODEM, and NAF v4 are all based on the International Defence Enterprise Architecture Specification ​(IDEASontology. The IDEAS-based format ​for the domain meta-model (DMMallows for the implementation of UAF DMM in non-SysML based tools.+  * support the analysis, specification,​ design, and verification ​of complex systems; 
 +  * support cybersecurity analysis, specification,​ and mitigation of security risks from a system/​infrastructure perspective and to aggregate the impact analysis to the operational perspective and cybersecurity risks' impact on the mission; and 
 +  * improve the ability to exchange architecture information among related tools that are SysML based and tools that  are based on other standards.
