Brief discussion of global telecommunications infrastructure. How access points in the US can collect on communications from “bad guy” countries (least cost routing, etc.)

TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN FAIRVIEW DEFINED • (TS//SI//NF) Large SSO Program involves NSA and Corporate Partner (Transit, FAA and FISA) • (TS//SI//REL FVEY) Cooperative effort associated with midpoint collection (cable, switch, router) • (TS//SI//NF) The partner operates in the U.S., but has access to information that transits the nation and through its corporate relationships provide unique accesses to other (TS//SI//NF) telecoms and ISPs 5 (TS//SI//NF) TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN
TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN Unique Aspects (C) Access to massive amounts of data (C) Controlled by variety of legal authorities (C) Most accesses are controlled by partner (C) Tasking delays TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN
(TS//SI//NF) Key Points: 1) SSO provides more than 80% of collection for NSA. SSO’s Corporate Portfolio represents a large portion of this collection. 2) Because of the partners and access points, the Corporate Portfolio is governed by several different legal authorities (Transit, FAA, FISA, EO12333), some of which are extremely time-intensive. 3) Because of partner relations and legal authorities, SSO Corporate sites are often controlled by the partner, who filters the communications before sending to NSA. 4) Because we go through partners and do not typically have direct access to the systems, it can take some time for OCTAVE/UTT/Cadence tasking to be updated at site (anywhere from weekly for some BLARNEY accesses to a few hours for STORMBREW).
TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN Transit Authority (TS//SI//NF) (TS//SI//NF) TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN
TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN Transit Authority • (S//SI//REL FVEY) Communications must be confirmed foreign-to- foreign. • (S//SI //REL FVEY) Filters at front-ends to ensure only authorized traffic is forwarded to the DNR and DNI selection engines. • (S//SI //REL FVEY) Occasionally the TOPI discovers that one end of the intercept is actually in the US. We refer to this as a “domestic incident”. • (C) TOPI’s must inform SSO Corp Team when this occurs via email alias . SSO files a formal report to NSA/SV for each occurrence of a domestic incident. TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN
•(S//SI) Transit Authority – Only allows those SSO programs operating under this authority to collect communications which are confirmed to be foreign-to-foreign. • (S//SI) SSO programs operating under this authority have filters at their collection front-ends to ensure only authorized traffic (i.e. foreign-to-foreign) is forwarded to the DNR and DNI selection engines (driven by UTT/CADENCE/OCTAVCE tasking). • (S//SI) Despite best efforts, occasionally there may be an “authorized” DNR or DNI hit forwarded to the TOPI, which based on TOPI analysis eventually determines that one-end of the intercept is actually in the US. We refer to this as a “domestic incident”. This usually occurs in the DNR world, where one-end of the intercept will make a reference to being in the US. • (C) TOPI’s must inform SSO Corp Team when this occurs via email report to NSA/SV for each occurrence of a domestic incident. .

Systems under a corporate program can be completely unrelated to one another (e.g., everything in OAKSTAR is different). *MONKEYROCKET is expected to become non-operational at the end of 2013. Blue-colored systems operate under Transit Authority. US-3150 is an umbrella SSO SIGAD for the Extended Enterprise.
TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN Help Us Help You • (TS//SI//REL FVEY) Submit Surrey Requirements to Unconventional Collection Discipline, with US-990 as a nominated SIGAD. (Protect your accesses) • (TS//SI//REL FVEY) Task FAIRVIEW in CADENCE dictionaries and UTT (we have ~5 million emails/day that make it past our authorization process and which then get sent to our dictionaries to see if any are tasked by our customers). • (TS//SI//REL FVEY) Accurate inclusion of Case Notation in reporting records. Permits us to backtrack and determine productive links and keep them on copy. • (TS//SI//REL FVEY) General Feedback – things going right (gee-whiz products which FV contributed to), things that can be improved. • (TS//SI//REL FVEY) Take advantage of FAA tasking. If you can justify it under existing FAA Certifications, you should be tasking your selectors under FAA authority. This opens up the FAIRVIEW program to do more than just port-25 collection (which is what we only do under Transit Authority). 25 TOP SECRET//SI/OC//NOFORN

1) Questions about individual accesses should be sent to the appropriate collection manager. 2) Questions about tasking should be sent to Mission Management. 3) All the information in this brief (in much more detail) can be found on the SSO Corporate Portfolio pages on WIKINOFORN.
