Supporting Internet Operations Old Cable Map Moving target: • More bandwidth being lit on existing cable systems • Several new cable systems being introduced (just in 2010). • As per SSE Roadmap, we need to maintain our investment in the access footprint in order to keep up.

1. This is a view of the commercial cable systems transiting the UK. There are around 1600 available 10Gs within these cables. 2. This is 25% of all internet traffic 3. Although the total percentage processed may seem in the lower percentile range we can actually survey the majority of the 1600. 4. This allows us to select the most valuable to switch into our processing systems. 5. Advancing techniques will allow a greater rate of processing by using targeted techniques (bulk presence events and TIPC). 3

Supporting Internet Operations Current Capability • Following the efforts made for the July deliverable, and the progress being made towards the 100 March 2010 target, GCHQs current 10G SSE capability is: – We can intercept/touch: ~800x 10Gs (See note #1) – We can cyclic survey: 188 – We can egress to GCHQ processing: 87 (See note #2) • In addition we are working with GERONTIC to agree an IRU which will enable a significant reduction in annual running costs (~£2M saving p.a), along with a further 10x 10G egress. Note #1. Does not include CIRCUIT/WAYGOOD Note #2. HIASCO access/egress to Bude complete – awaiting extra ARCANO egress TOP SECRET STRAP1 44
