local COMSEC management software (LCMS)

Abbreviation(s) and Synonym(s): Definition(s):

  Application-level software on the local management device (LMD) that provides for the management of key, physical COMSEC materials, non-cryptographic services, and communications. Through a graphical interface, the LCMS automates the functions of the COMSEC Account Manager, including accounting, auditing, distribution, ordering, and production. Programs and systems that have specialized key management requirements have software shell programs (known as user applications software (UAS)) that run on the LMD with the LCMS software to provide custom functionality.
