TOP SECRET STRAP 1 What is NGE?  Systems like HAUSTORIUM reaching ingest capacity – But scale and variety both increasing  5-Eyes also far-apart on “metadata” requirements, need to get closer together The Answer?  NGE: A multi-stage project that tackles a series of the problems, at increasing scale, and with increasing collaboration CLASSIFCATION 29 September 2009 "This information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and may be subject to exemption under other UK information legislation.

TOP SECRET STRAP 1 NGE: The Last Three Months  Sharing Enriched Metadata (HARBOUR PILOT) – Moving towards metadata standards across 5-Eyes – Invisible to GCHQ analysts  Internet Profiling (BLAZING SADDLES) – Taking ICTR ideas on how to process Events at scale, and scale even more – Required significant effort on End-to-End Sigint process CLASSIFCATION 29 September 2009 "This information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and may be subject to exemption under other UK information legislation.

TOP SECRET STRAP 1 NGE: And After That?  Capability Development Workspace – Bulk datamining capability – Use existing sources, and new cloud capabilities  Large-scale contact chaining – MOAG – but anyone can create – Using both GCHQ and NSA datastores  MO/Profiling based discovery – Always been the goal for events-led analysis – Dependent on technological advancements, but looking good  Events/Content Fusion & Visualisation – Seamless navigation between Events and Content – Making sure we continue the MONTE VISTA/LOOKING GLASS ideas CLASSIFCATION 29 September 2009 "This information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and may be subject to exemption under other UK information legislation.

TOP SECRET STRAP 1 Next Generation Content..?  Not yet…but thinking and delivery is happening – TIPC using TDI’s – Expand XKS use – Trial new ways of collecting/processing content (TINT) CLASSIFCATION 29 September 2009 "This information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and may be subject to exemption under other UK information legislation.

TOP SECRET STRAP 1 Plug 2: TIPC Expansion  What It Does – Full client IP stream collection triggered by known selector – Expanded to STM-64 environment as well as STM-1/4 – Now triggered by TDI’s, not just gmail, yahoo and maktoob  Why You Care – Unique Intelligence material that can’t be strong selected – web visits/searches etc – Find new protocols used by targets – you, tech trends, T development – Contextless – New dictionary – old one completely erased  How Do You Get Access? – Talk to your C2C Tech Ex – they are running pre-requisite briefings as there are some dangers…(full IIB!)

TOP SECRET STRAP 1 Plug 3: XKS & TINT @ Bude Experiments  What It Will Do: – Promotion from XKS to IIB – Integration into LOOKING GLASS – Connection to Native File Viewer (FUME CUPBOARD) – Continuing to work on the NSA data access issue – The [email protected] Experiments Attempt To: • Re-sessionise everything • Tag traffic, based on •strong selector/ geography/ application •contextual fingerprints: • • Extract metadata in bulk Retain a 3-day rolling buffer of ‘interesting’ content •for retrospective/protocol/network/analysis •for refining fingerprints/selectors   • Do this on 20 x 10G’s! Why You Care: – Packet processing approach misses stuff – Strong selection only – Too much data retained is unused (97% unviewed) – Promote only the good stuff to long-term storage – Aim: to automatically promote to long term storage When Do You Get Access? – New XKS capabilities will be rolled out to GCHQ KS’s when available – TINT PUT in place, but experimental, not operational use only CLASSIFCATION 29 September 2009 "This information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and may be subject to exemption under other UK information legislation.
