    Default NSA-connected SA IP Ranges/Companies

    I was browsing Cryptome (http://cryptome.org/ ) a fairly solid source for info and documentation on various things - and saw lists of IP ranges connected with the US's National Security Agency..

    Naturally, I checked for South Africa references.. and found a few..

    "Latest Updated NSA-Affiliated IP Resources"
    http://cryptome.org/nsa-ip-update9.htm
    these are correct as of Oct 6th.

    It might be fun to contact these companies and ask them what exactly they are supplying to the USA's National Security Agency, and why.

    Those IP pools are quite huge (except the strike one), doubt there is anything dubios going on though....

    Ha, the NSA can be glad they don't have iBurst on that list ... any information coming from that company is worthless!!

    Or maybe its something hugely dubious...

    Small ranges one could plug into the firewall and be done with it, but your right they are bit too big for that.
