IT Network Documentation - IPv4/v6 Public Facing addresses

Ben Fairless made this Freedom of Information request to Department of the Treasury

The request was successful.

From: Ben Fairless

Delivered

Dear Department of the Treasury,

I am writing to you to request information pertaining to your Information Technology infrastructure.

Namely, I am after records detailing the IPv4 (and if relevant,
IPv6) addresses used to access the public internet from within your network.

To clarify, these are the public facing addresses of your private network. I am only requesting addresses that are used to access the general public internet.

In addition, if it is such that a particular IP address serves a
particular area within your department (for example, one IP address is used for Media Relations, while another is used for Ministerial Communications), I also request access to this information.

To assist you in locating this information, I suggest it would be found in network documentation, or at the very least in configuration files of your
router and firewall equipment.

Please do not hesitate to reply if you require clarification to
fulfil this request.

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Fairless

Please can you confirm receipt of my initial request and this amendment?

Yours faithfully,
