You employer needs to engage a specialist consultant under 
non-disclosure agreement.

It is not possible for you to do a competent job unless you understand 
the context.  Very often people try and delegate a sub-problem when the 
best overall solution doesn't have that sub-problem. Unless the person 
trying to solve the sub-problem, knows the wider context, they can never 
come up with a solution that says the sub-problem doesn't need solving, 
nor can they find a valid compromise solution, as they don't know what 
parts of the problem can be compromised.

The only situations where one would normally not have that context is 
where some sort of military-like need to know security applies, in which 
case it would be unlikely that you would be asking on a public forum, or 
when the project is an academic homework exercise, but this thread has 
gone on rather long for that.
