SIPRnet stands for the Secret Internet Protocol router Network SIPRNET) and it’s the system the typically interconnected networks of the computers that are used by many countries such as US for managing and organizing the activities of their defense departments and military functions. Many of the military departments are inner related to each other for the communicating and transmitting the relevant data over the safest route by maintaining secrecy of the data, one of the well none technique used for this purpose is the packet switching with the help of transfer and TCP protocols in fully safe environment. It also offer access to all the linked hyper text document files an other electronically mailed data for instance it is recognized as the only version of network touting for civilians to collaborate the military strategies. It is also known as on of the secret components of the DISN defense Information Systems Network.
How SIPRnet works
Sirpnet works similar to the niprnet hut the main difference is that it deals with the classified data .it is considered to be the world largest classified information exchange network with utmost secret level. SIPRnet support the various system such as the Global command systems and defense messaging system and also some other important planning documents over the secure path. it is based on the some method that are use for ordinary internet access but the main difference is that it has some dedicated path lines that are not seen in other communication systems. These lines are responsible for managing the secure communication with highly authenticated user access. Its counter part of the niprnet is also providing seamless portability between internally related data to its users.
If user want to access the SIPRnet they need to pas the high level clearance procedure to access the connection and to see the information available on the SIPRnet because SIPRnet could be the direct targets f all hostile penetrations that is why strict security is applied over its access.
Registration and Access
typically registration procedure that is quite lengthy is required to gain the control over. all the linked users need to be properly registered with full fledged records in internal data sheets and all the passwords must be changed and must be updated after every 150 days otherwise access will be not granted to the users. password less than 10 characters are to acceptable d they must be the combination of alphanumeric sequences and Capital sequences but now more strict rules are applied which include passwords of 10 characters with at least two numbers, two letters in lower case., tow letters in upper case and two specials characters. Although special characters are not allowed to be a password in of the systems other than SIPRnet. During the consistent access users are not allowed to leave the system at once or unattended.
Some other strict habits involved the use of fixed secondary stage media in which a hard rives can’t be removed to make sure the Secrecy level of data by assuring the single location storage. this require proper marking of the hardware storage during the registration procedure. Use of the improper storage media such as floppy, compact disks and memory stacks results in violation of the strict rules that may cause 5 month prison.
Improved technologies have made it easier for the SIPRnet to locate the safest form of data storage devices fro instance device like PDA personal digital assistants, Memory watches sand key chain drives, these device can’t be the classified type by h SIPRnet. This is the main reason that these device are not allowed din the section with infra red detection o classified items. For the computer systems that are installed for processing the classified information it is recommended that they should not use port beaming capability.
