The information security policy development lifecycle tends to lack focus on the use of standard terms and semantics. This results in blurred outlines for monitoring, evaluation, and enforcement of the security policy for the employees confusing adhering to and implementing it, which leads to a lack of a process of publishing from the security policy, end-user awareness, translation of high-level policy to lowest level component configuration plans and actions to take in time of crisis. This leads to the critical need to design an empirically tested, comprehensive security policy. This chapter proposes bridging the gap between the high-level information security policy descriptions and low-level network infrastructure security implementation. With new and innovative technologies, such as Cloud, Remote Computing, Enterprise Mobility, and e-commerce on the rise, network security has remained an ever-increasing challenge. This chapter presents a security framework to bridge the gap between highlevel specification requirements and the low-level implementation phase for network infrastructure security using the network architecture model with the security policies associated with the network components required to be enforced. An architectural model and a set of design-level security policies are considered to achieve the framework design. Also discussed are the advantages and desired characteristics of the model, relating to existing processes worked in the design area, and future research directions are pointed.
