IT Network Documentation - IPv4/v6 Public Facing addresses

Ben Fairless made this Freedom of Information request to Defence Imagery and Geospatial Organisation as part of a batch sent to 29 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Defence Imagery and Geospatial Organisation.

Dear Defence Imagery and Geospatial Organisation,

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
