In the context of Ignite and its customers, a boundary diagram outlines what is within the scope of a system or solution and what is outside of it. It represents the system’s boundaries and usually involves a delineation between internal and external components. It can vary in complexity from simple to intricate, indicating the level of detail and information about the system’s components. The diagram typically includes firewalls, DMZs (Demilitarized Zones), protocols, network components, and security measures.

An authorization diagram, similar to a boundary diagram, depicts the authorized scope of a system, defining what is permissible and what is not. It delineates the boundary of the system’s security controls and often involves various components like firewalls, switches, protocols, and security measures. The security measures can include technical items such as logging, monitoring, authentication; physical protections, such as doors, locks, keypads, as well as processes such as sequence diagrams or swimlane diagrams.  The complexity of the diagram varies, ranging from simple representations to intricate layouts detailing numerous system components and their interconnections.

Simplification refers to the process of reducing the level of complexity or detail in diagrams or documentation, particularly boundary diagrams. It involves abstracting or omitting certain technical specifics or intricate information to create a more straightforward representation that aligns with the intended audience’s understanding. This practice enables easier comprehension for various stakeholders, such as auditors, without compromising essential system details. Simplification refers to the process of reducing the level of complexity or detail in diagrams or documentation, particularly boundary diagrams. (Simplification)

 

Applicability: Applicable in system architecture, compliance documentation, and security planning.
