An anonymous reader writes "Cryptome's John Young posted an anonymous communication detailing the existence of classified databases used for network analysis.
In the context of the recent DEA/NSA scandal: "When I read the description of Drug Enforcement Administrations (DEA) DEA Internet Connectivity Environment (DICE) system: the billions of records, partnership with CIA, NSA and DOD, the need to cover sources at the expense of a fair trail [sic]--- it struck me that what was described sounded more like PROTON and/or CLEARWATER."
"DICE is being used to cover PROTON and/or CLEARWATER."
These are massive databases. "...PROTON presently receives SCS collection amounting to about 1 one terabyte monthly, and that's just selectors, not content. PROTON also receives data from Computer Network Exploitation (CNE), by the now famous Tailored Access Office (TAO). Included as well is an enormous repository of Title III data from CALEA enabled domestic collection, FISA and an enormous amount of purchased data from various communications providers like Intellius."
The source continues: "I know for certain PROTON contains communications selectors on American Citizens (AMCITS) since I ran a query on a number using only a Maryland area code and a partial prefix."
Why spill the beans? "I'm providing information on both since the government is no longer under constitutional restraint and is illegitimate. Parallel Construction. You fuckers. A cornerstone of American law and western culture sacrificed for the security of the Elites."
A SIGINT Analyst job description is included which mentions experience with the databases as "Preferred" experience."
