Abstract
The advances in information technology (IT) systems and network security have become main necessary requirements for any business in current time and future. Any organization needs a full description of all the key elements and relationships for applying good IT systems and good network security. This is known as network security architecture. This architecture increases the capabilities of any organization in terms of its practical application. This work has a new approach to network security architecture by using the Zachman Framework capabilities. The network security architecture of nuclear and academic facilities academic centers is discussed to show how a conceptual model can be implemented in a real organization. This new approach makes any Local Area Network LAN more secure and more flexible than any conventional security procedures without affecting the performance of the LAN. Creating security architecture for nuclear and research facilities by the Zachman matrix (data, function, and network) provide the answers to what data assets the organization controls, how they are used, and where they are located. Nuclear facilities, as one of the major users of information and communication technology, present a good case study for applying the proposed architecture. Therefore the Zachman matrix provides the answers to what data assets the nuclear and research facilities controls by setting up the ideal use and ideal places for these data.
