The Secret IP Data service provides point-to-point connectivity to mission partners. It also provides IP-based secret information transfer across DoD for official DoD business applications such as e-mail, web services, and file transfer. The Secret IP Data service gateway function provides DoD customers with centralized and protected connectivity to federal, Intelligence Community (IC) and allied information at the secret level.
The Secret IP Data service includes IP-based secret information exchange within DoD (DoD intranet) and centralized, gateway external network information exchange (extranet). The intranet function provides access to a joint, shared DoD environment at the secret classification level for the exchange of information among DoD components.
This service requires customer-provided encryption devices. For more information, please reference the Secret IP Router Network (SIPRNet) Customer Guide, 10 December 2009.
