     No Command Instructions in Regards to Computer Systems or Removable Writable Media (Floppy, DVD, CD, .. ETC.).., 
     I have been talking about this since SEPT. 2005, continously and did NOT start E-mailing about this and reporting specific examples until OCT. 2006..., more then a year later.  I mention this because I did NOT want to get people in trouble but after a year of talking about this I had NO choice. 
     I could get in trouble for condoning it and so can YOU.

Sir, Ames, Walker, and Hanson, some of the biggest spies in U.S. history would love the relaxed security NAVIOCOM, San Diego relaxed security especially in regards to removable writable readable media when I checked into the command.

Sir, CNO (CND, CNE, CNA) all have a powerful affect on OPSEC, MILDEC, and PSYOP.  I have been obstructed every step of the way in regards to this.

The Operations Leading Chief [OPS-LCPO] CTTCS has harassed me about doing a course on Vuport.   CTTCS says that what I'm doing does NOT look like IO [Information Operations] stuff.  Keeping OPSEC information secure is impossible without talking about computer network security.

[The OPS-LCPO CTTCS has continuously harrassed me about doing something that goes to the core of what our job is.  That is highlighting Information Operations VULNERABILITIES.]

The technology exists to INTERCEPT or even record EMAIL content without your knowledge.  We cannot assume that emails can't or won't be compromised.

Sources of Malicious Code.
* Images  * Open Source Documents  *Audio Files  * Games  * Screen Savers  * Developer's tools

[ The above items were being downloaded from the Internet and put on classified networks practically everyday without any command instruction.  I do NOT care if this happens, but I do CARE that this is happening without a command instruction, departmental instruction, or divisional instruction.  Nobody wanted to put this in writing. ]

Sir, I do NOT understand how Low to High domain transfers became an issue when it should be COMMON KNOWLEDGE since everyone was required to do the NKO Course: Basic SCI Systems User Course (ONI-SSONAVY).

Sir, the practice of Low to High domain transfers through removable media from the internet is forbidden as a basic SCI user and in any case domain transfers require a Command Instruction as required be Department of Defense.

[C.O. NIOC San Diego] Per our nearly three hour discussion....
Your security concerns are indeed a serious matter and MAY BE considered valid.
....Further investigation is needed to identify all existing guidance and to determine if contradictory policy may exist in those instructions

[Appears to me like the C.O. wants to PICK and CHOOSE what DOD instructions he will or will NOT follow.  I said and continue to say that you have to follow the strictest instructions.  If a DOD instruction is stricter then a Navy instruction then you have to follow the stricter DOD instructions or vise versa while being in strict compliance with both instructions.]

[For example a NIOC San Diego instruction could FORBID the use of any and all types of Removable Writable Media (Floppy, DVD, CD etc.).  Since the NIOC San Diego instruction is stricter then the DOD or NAVY Instruction then it is the one you follow.]
