IT Network Documentation - IPv4/v6 Public Facing addresses

Ben Fairless made this Freedom of Information request to NBN Co Limited

The request was refused by NBN Co Limited.

From: Ben Fairless

Delivered

Dear NBN Co Limited,

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

Hi David,

Thanks for our chat.

Deposit has been paid:
Date: 10/08/2014
Time: 5:55pm Sydney/Melbourne time
Receipt#: N081048122119
Transfer from: BENJAMIN FAIRLESS
To account: BSB: 062-438
Account number: *****782
Amount transferred: $20.00
Description: FOI AYCA 1IXUT6

CBA doesn't allow descriptions which contain hyphens, so I have removed these from the reference.

Please note that payment of the deposit should not be seen as an acceptance of the total amount charged to reach a decision. I reserve the right to contend that further charges should be reduced or not imposed.

I would appreciate consulting with you informally if you intend to make a decision that access to the information be refused so I can respond to any claims put forward by 3rd parties.

I look forward to your response.

Kindest Regards,

Ben Fairless

We should really flesh these requests out with 'what your it department should have documented ie in log files', and preempt the ddos misunderstanding (security by obscurity not being appropriate risk management)
