Datamining the NSA - Part I

Introduction to heart of the US military complex

The following .MIL domains and subdomains were used for posting to the Biometrics Consortium mailing list. The massive distribution of high security military units is undoubtedly the most striking feature her. From the NSA's supercomputing centers, to weapons research laboratories of all kind to the Department of Defense Central Command - that is where biometric methods were introduced first. It was the core centers of the US military complex with the highest levels of security.

Hosts: afterlife.ncsc.mil

alpha@ncsc.mil

These are the two servers used by NSA staff on bc-list. Alpha is apparently the SMTP in use, when they are within the NSA's secure communication system. From 1994 to 1997 alpha hosted the majordomo system bc-list was using at that time. The North Carolina Supercomputing Center is a pretty well known NSA playground. An earlier analysis of all hosts identifiable at NCSC.MIL displays some kind of weird humour not unfamiliar to sysadmins working for the civil society. "The Graduate Mathematics Program is the National Security Agency's newest summer program for mathematics graduate students. The program will provide an opportunity for exceptional graduate students to work directly with NSA mathematicians on mission-critical problems and experience the excitement of the NSA ma thematics community.

U.S. Army Fort Monmouth, New Jersey is the center for the development of the Army's Command and Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Sensors and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems. Much of the Army's research and development of these hi-tech systems is done at Fort Monmouth by members of Team C4ISR. "Several of the most advanced systems currently being used in operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom and Homeland Defense were developed at Fort Monmouth.

The Army's Communications Electronics Command (CECOM), although geographically dispersed at various locations throughout the U.S. and around the world, is the host and largest activity. U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command Communications Security Logistics Activity (USACCSLA) see below. In 1917 Fort Monmouth, then called Camp Vail was home to the Army's Signal School."
