Hi list,

Just reading the post on this subject and some are full of

What Jan said is wrong, in fact Stan is correct.

I have no problems with the data in the posts, and the
corrections. For example "Unclassified" is an important level
usually missed by people who don't understand the complexity of
the system.


However, the inexperienced always leave out the levels in the
structure, I have no idea why. I think it's because most see it
as a 'document restriction system' (paper lock) when it is a
'human restriction system' (human lock).

The problem is that everyone thinks that the Classification
defines the security, but it does not!

Some facts to remember:

[1]. Levels of Protection are always above Classification
     of Protection.

[2]. Humans move the data, not paper.

[3]. You can always move down the levels, sometime across the
     levels but definitely NOT up the levels.

The top dog in the 'Levels of Protection' is the OS - "Official
Secrets" level.

This is the Official Secrets Act stamp and is a "lifetime duty
of confidentiality" or a 'Black Hole' stamp or lock.

If you sign this form, then you have in fact in a very odd way
cut out all other levels. The force of this protection will only
come into action if the authorities hit you with the OS stamp.
Even Stan cannot get out of this one if I hit him with a OS!

Nothing moves, down sideway or up - you're a dead duck.


Nick Pope post is an important post and needs to be understood.
"COSMIC top secret" is the highest classification marking in
NATO and it is equivalent to "UK top secret".


So in fact Stan Friedman is correct, he was between S and TS. It
is not a simple 4 level stamp and it would take some time to
work it out if you have no idea how the system is structured,
that's another post another day.

Regards to all,



  OS - Lifetime Confidential   <--- The Head dog
 CTS - Cosmic
  TS - DoD SAP
  TS - SCI
   S - DoD SAP                  <--- Stans Level (?)
   S - SCI
   C - DoD SAP
   C - SCI
   R - BIGOT LIST               <--- Non USA
   E - EMBARGO                  <--- Non USA
