A preliminary statement of user requirements and general operational concepts for the Community Limited Access Intelligence Register (CLAIRE) System was prepared in response to the DCI's request for a "bigot list" 'control system. The'statement is serving as a basis for a feasibility study by the Office of Joint Computer Support, which will be completed in February. 2. Development of a Security Position and Employee Control System (SPECS) was completed during the month and became operational. The System is already producing reports for the use of the Personnel Branch i and the Career Board. I - 3. On 18 January an initial draft Intelligence Community computer security policy paper was disseminated to members of the USIB Computer Security Subcommittee for their review and comment. This effort repre- sents the first stage of development of a comprehensive community policy issuance on computer security. 4. During the month,.NPIC surfaced an intention to purchase and ,install 500 new computer terminals. Discussions arranged by the ISSG with appropriate Agency components identified security and TEMPEST re- quirements associated with NPIC procurement of these terminals; further, a coordinated approach to defining the security requirements was developed. 5. The ISSG initiated a coordinated Agency position of nonconcur- rence in the matter of a proposed United States Communications Security Board (USCSB) National COMSEC Plan for Computer Systems. The Agency position developed in conjunction with the Offices of Communications, Joint Computer Support, and the Comptroller suggested a positive alter- native to defining the separate responsibilities of the USCSB, the USIB, and individual agencies with reference to the traditional, the communi- cations, and the emanations security aspects of computer operations.

A briefing and guidance was provided representatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Agency techniques in securing floor cells in the Headquarters Building used for classified data distribution lines. The floor cell locking devices developed under Office of Security direction for the Headquarters Data Grid were specifically mentioned. This FBI interest arises from a similar requirement for data distribution in the new FBI Headquarters Building. 7. Security guidance was furnished to the Office of Joint Com- puter Support concerning a Defense Intelligence Agency request to use OJCS computing facilities for emergency. backup to a DIA computer system. ANALYSIS 1. The ISSG work load in January was considerably higher than December. A significant portion of the case load related to ADP support activities, including the evaluation of CENBAD, the implementation of SPECS, and the, definition of-CLAIRE requirements. 2. On 11 January the entire Group moved from the Chamber of Commerce Building to Headquarters. A ten per cent increase in operational efficiency is being realized since "travel time" has been eliminated as a significant factor in-conducting day-to-day business. TRENDS The significant increase in ISSG activities in January is expected to continue through at least February and March in all program categories. The ADP support area will continue to demand increased resource alloca- tion; however, steps have been initiated which are expected to bear fruit by 1 April to transfer a large amount of the ADP support activities to the clerical support staff of the Group. This transfer may allow the increasing requirements to be absorbed by an increase in clerical rather than professional personnel.

STATINTL Plans, Programs Branch 1. A trial "Office of Security Monthly Report of Trends and High- lights for December 1973" was compiled in a new format and circulated. The first formal report will be prepared in February 1974 covering the data generated in January. 2. The delegations of authority to classify national security in- formation was reviewed, and the Chief, Information Systems Analysis Staff/ DDM&S, was advised of certain changes necessitated by recent reassignment actions. 3. Briefing material was furnished the DD/M$S covering the major activities of the Office of Security. This material is to be used in an 'overall briefing effort to be given Vice President Gerald R. Ford in early February. 4. Considerable preliminary staff work was done covering the preparation of FY 197"5 and 1976 Office Objectives and decisions packages.

Examination of the work measurement statistics shows relatively small changes in those activities which make up the bulk of the Security Records Division's work. These activities are Case Processing, Filing and Case Analysis. 2. The Indices Activities which normally.go hand in hand with the SRD activities mentioned above show an increase during the current period which is directly attributable-to the project to purge the Office of Security Personal Index of names which are no longer pertinent due to the passage of time. One of the purposes of this project is to hold the index at a level of two million entries. The Office of Security Personal Index contained 1,977,675 entries as of 31 January. 3. The Communications Activities statistics are distorted by the addition of figures for the pouch manifest activities. This was a new activity in FY 1974 which has now been discontinued. Since the February statistics will no longer include pouch manifest activities, the statistics for the communications activities will again be comparative to FY 1973. 4. The Computer Support and Compartmented Information Activities indicate a real increase in work load over FY 1973. 5. The report form has been changed for the Microfiche/Retirement Activities to reflect a new policy governing the retirement of files. In January, SRD discontinued retiring files to the Records Center and recalling older files from the Records Center to be microfiched. Files meeting retirement criteria are now immediately microfiched. The number of retired Security files held by the Records Center will tend to-decline as they are recalled and reactivated. As of 31 January,. 251,929 Security files had been retired of which 16,649 had been recalled and reactivated. 6. In general, the activities of the Security Records Division in January were at normal levels after the sub-normal month experienced in December because of the holidays.
