The Intelligence (or "OSINT") group investigates and catalogs the Internet resources held by sanctioned entities. These include the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses their computers and networks use to communicate, the Autonomous System numbers that identify their networks in the Internet routing system, and the domain names by which their services are reached. Equally important, the intelligence group ensures that the identified resources are not used by civilians. The intelligence group utilizes data sources which are public, so that its findings can be replicated by others.
