Amazon’s Web Services Can Now Host The Government’s Most Sensitive Data

Just recently, the Defense Department granted the cloud computing giant, Amazon,  a provisional authorization to host Impact Level 5 workloads, which are the military and the Pentagon’s most sensitive, unclassified information. Amazon’s web services can now host some of the government’s most fascinating (to the public) and sensitive information.

“This further bolsters AWS (Amazon Web Services) as an industry leader in helping support the DoD’s critical mission in protecting our security,” the company said in a statement. “The AWS services support a variety of DoD (Department of Defense) workloads, including workloads containing sensitive controlled unclassified information and National Security Systems information.”

But the DoD is already using Amazon’s services and this is not exactly new news. The DoD is using AWS to host sensitive, mission-critical workloads, including the operational control system for the Global Positioning System, or GPS. The provisional authorization allows military customers an easier route to use AWS for a variety of other IT services.

In total, three commercial companies—AWS, IBM and Microsoft—are now able to host and store the military’s most sensitive unclassified data. AWS has expanded its defense business, it remains the dominant cloud service provider in the intelligence community by virtue of its $600 million contract with the Central Intelligence Agency. AWS’ C2S cloud hosts classified information for the 17 intelligence agencies.

The company’s Beltway presence continues to grow in lines with its federal market share. AWS recently announced a new corporate headquarters and up to 1,500 jobs in Fairfax County and expects a new East Coast computing region to come online in 2018. Called US-East, the region will essentially be a mass of computer networks operating by AWS entirely for government customers, including the Defense Department. – Nextgov.com

This includes, but certainly isn’t limited to top-secret Pentagon and NSA (National Security Administration) information. According to the Daily Mail, this includes workloads containing sensitive Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), National Security Systems (NSS), and the Global Positioning System Next Generation Operational Control System (GPS OCX), a critical navigation information system that supports global cyber protection and analysis of satellite data.

      the IRS should google

    • Ketchupondemand says:

      Thanks Nailbanger, tomorrow is prep time just like Irma, only this one looks serious.
      When you’ve done all you can, you look around and see something else that needs moving or tying down.

      Probably have to take down the solar panels this time.
      I want them after the storm when the power will be out indefinitely. DO NOT want them to blow away.
      Haven’t had to do it yet but I mounted them on perforated angle iron (in cement filled pvc) and they’re easy to unbolt.
      Will likely lose internet but will update.
      Anywhere from 2:00 to 8:00PM is first arrival times (est.)

      • Nailbanger says:

        Wishing you luck and prayers, stay safe!
        👍🏻😎

          Thanks. If we have to go into the basement we know it’s safe. Built for hurricanes.
          Just hoping for the best and that the roof of our main house stays on. It’s wood and steel over 2×6 framing and the walls and foundation are block/cement.
          Now it appears we have all day today to finalize.
          Good thing about being prepped-we don’t have to go out for anything, even popcorn!

    Its only September 19th and additional hurricanes are forming in the Atlantic. It’s pretty clear that SHTF has come to large swaths of America:

    Someone here said several months ago that he was told that SHTF would happen in September. Who was that Masked Man ???
    It’s in the archives. 🙂

    Good to see the illegal invaders exercise their full God given rights as non-legal American felons receiving full entitlements, those that demand all 30 million illegals amnesty, take over the stage at the give 800,000 dreamers their DACA act Pelosi lovefest event. The dogs were biting the hands of their master today! Boy the crowd bushwacked her and she had this coming for a long long time. Pelosi messed her depends as the ugly militant leftists nearly turned violent against the senile old bat, full of white guilt from being white. Lucky for her these weren’t the black life matters, else she would be instant cremated buckwheat. Or alfalfa, farina…

  5. Plan twice, prep once says:

    I was traveling in Va just outside of DC.

    It’s frightening how many buildings are under construction with huge AC systems and unusually massive power systems revealed by the size of power lines feeding them. They look like warehouses, but the AC systems are massive.

    These are data centers, there’s no hiding them

    I noticed on the sidebar the prepper website has a article about 90% will die without electricity. I agree we are only 110 volts from a stone age lifestyle. I grew up without electricity. We never had electric until 1962. We did own a DC welder that had a 110 outlet (I still own it)It consumes a lot of gas. One idea im experimenting with is a compressed air deep well water pump. I have mounted windmill blades on a compressor head. That feed’s air down a small diameter line and feed’s into a larger line with a 90 degree connection near the bottom of the well. The influx of air builds up and burps the water to the top of the large line. Water is easy to store and gravety feed to where it is used.

    I can vouch for stockpiling food and supplies.
    Since I kidnapped Gene from rehab where he was sleeping 23 hours a day!!??!! after a brain surgery from a seizure fall, I have needed not one thing.
    On the way home, I got milk and loaf bread(could have used instant milk and I am making biscuits).
    I am good for a looooong time which is a good thing since I haven’t heard from any neighbors since Aug. 28, day of surgery.
    Folks, store what you eat and you will be fine; do NOT depend on anyone to help you.

    Babylon is Fallen
    1″After this I saw another angel descending from heaven with great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his glory. 2And he cried out in a mighty voice: “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a lair of demons. She is a haunt for every unclean spirit, a hideout for every unclean bird, and a hold for every detestable beast. 3All the nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her immorality. The kings of the earth were immoral with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown wealthy through the extravagance of her luxury.”…
