130.  PURPOSE AND BACKGROUND.                                            
           a.  The Controlled Cryptographic Item (CCI) category applies        
      to specified, unclassified, secure telecommunications and                
      information handling equipments and associated cryptographic             
      components.  The intent is to promote the broad use of secure            
      telecommunications and information handling equipments for the           
      protection of national security (classified), and other sensitive        
      information which should be protected in the national interest.          
           b.  Secure telecommunications and information and handling          
      equipments and associated cryptographic components which are             
      designated "Controlled Cryptographic Item" or "CCI" use a                
      classified cryptographic logic; it is only the hardware or               
      firmware embodiment of that logic which is unclassified.  The            
      associated cryptographic drawings, logic descriptions, theory of         
      operation, computer programs, and related cryptographic                  
      information remains classified.                                          
           c.  Procedures for controlling CCI secure telecommunications        
      and information handling equipments and associated cryptographic         
      components are required to guard against preventable losses to an        
      actual or potential enemy.                                               
                (1)  In keeping with the spirit of expanded use of             
      these equipments, minor lapses in carrying out control procedures        
      shall be referred to the responsible manager as a matter of              
      administrative discretion.  FAA employees can be held liable for         
      the loss, damage, or destruction of Government property caused by        
      their negligence, willful misconduct, or deliberate unauthorized         
                (2)  More serious infractions of CCI control procedures        
      may constitute sabotage, loss through gross negligence, theft, or        
      espionage that would be punishable under various sections of the         
      United States Code or the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

      cryptographic component may be a modular assembly, a printed             
      circuit board, a microcircuit, or a combination of these items.          
           d.  Access.  The ability or opportunity to obtain, modify,          
      or use.  External viewing of a CCI does not constitute access.           
      132.  CONTROL REQUIREMENTS.  The following subparagraphs set             
      forth the minimum requirements for controlling unkeyed CCI               
      equipments and components utilized by the FAA.  Where such               
      equipments and components contain classified key they shall be           
      protected in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 5 of            
      this Order.  Also, depending upon the application, other more            
      stringent requirements may be prescribed.                                
           a.  Access.  A security clearance is not required for access        
      to unkeyed CCI equipments and components.  However, access shall         
      normally be restricted to U.S. citizens whose duties require such        
      access.  Access may be granted to permanently admitted resident          
      aliens who are U.S. Government civilian employees or active duty         
      or reserve members of the U.S. Armed Forces whose duties require         
      such access.  ACO-300 may grant waivers to permit non-U.S.               
      citizens unescorted access to installed CCIs, regardless of the          
      release status of the CCI, under conditions listed below:                
      NOTE:  The approval of the National Managers must be obtained by         
      ACO-300 through AFCSC/SRMP before allowing such access by non-           
      U.S. citizens in Communist block or other countries listed in the        
      Attorney General Criteria Country List.  Such requests shall be          
      routed through the servicing security element to ACO-300 together        
      with complete justification and explanation of operational need.         
                (1)  Unkeyed CCI's:                                            
                     (a)  Such access is in conjunction with building          
      maintenance, custodial duties, or other operational                      
      responsibilities normally performed by such personnel unescorted         
      in the area now containing the CCIs before their installation;           
                     (b)  The CCI is installed within a facility which         
      is a U.S.-controlled facility or a combined facility with a              
      permanent U.S. presence, as opposed to a host nation facility,           
      even through the primary staffing is by host nation personnel;           
                     (c)  The servicing security element has determined        
      that the risk of tampering with the CCI which could result in            
      compromise of U.S. information, classified or unclassified but           
      sensitive, is acceptable in light of the local threat and                
      vulnerability and the sensitivity of the information being               
      protected and indicated by its classification, special security          
      controls, and intelligence life; and                                     
                     (d)  Such access is not prohibited by Department          
      of State policies and procedures applicable to FAA operation in a        
      given geographic area.                                                   
                     (e)  The system doctrine for the CCI does not             
      specifically prohibit such access.                                       
                (2)  Keyed CCI's.  In addition to all of the                   
      requirements for unkeyed CCIs, the following apply for unescorted        
      access or use by foreign personnel:                                      
                     (a)  The foreign personnel are civilian employees         
      of the U.S. Government or assigned to a combined facility; and           
                     (b)  The CCI remains U.S. property, a U.S. citizen        
      is responsible for it, and the presence of such installed CCIs is        
      verified at least monthly; and                                           
                     (c)  The communications to be protected are               
      determined to be essential to the support of FAA or combined             
      operations; and                                                          
                     (d)  FAA and other U.S. users communicating with          
      such terminals are made aware of the non-U.S. citizen status of          
      the CCI user; and                                                        
                     (e)  Only U.S. personnel with classified U.S. keys        
      may key CCI's.  Authorized foreign personnel may key CCIs with           
      allied keys or unclassified keys.                                        
                (3)  Special Security Requirements.  If a CCI is to be         
      installed and operated in a foreign country at a facility which          
      is either unmanned or manned entirely by non-U.S. citizens,              
      additional special security measures, such as vault areas,               
      locking bars, safes, alarms, etc., are required.  Should an              
      installation of this nature be required to support FAA operations        
      it must be approved in advance by ACO-300 after coordination with        
      AFCSC/SRM on a case-by-case basis.                                       
                (4)  Moving CCI's.  CCI's will not normally be moved           
      from an environment where the tampering risk presented by non-           
      U.S. citizen access is acceptable to a more sensitive environment        
      where the risk is not acceptable.  If such action is an                  
      operational necessity, it must receive the prior approval of the         
      FAA servicing security element and in overseas areas the                 
      cognizant representative of the Department of State for the              
      particular geographic area.  All such CCI's must be examined for         
      signs of tampering by qualified COMSEC maintenance personnel.            
      Any evidence of tampering shall be reported as a COMSEC incident         
      and immediate action will be taken to remove the CCI from                
      operational use pending notification from the Director, National         
      Security Agency.                                                         
           b.  Courier.  Authorized FAA employees and contractor               
      employees (U.S. citizens) may courier CCI equipment and                  
      components.  Requirements for courier authorization are specified        
      in FAA Order 1600.2C, National Security Information.                     
                (1)  Authorized persons may transport CCI aboard both          
      Government and commercial aircraft, either handcarried or as             
      checked baggage.  If it is checked as hold baggage on commercial         
      airliners, it must be packaged in a container which is sealed in         
      a manner that will detect unauthorized access to the enclosed            
      material, such as tamper-detections tape, wire seals, etc.               
                (2)  CCI can be subjected to X-ray inspections;                
      however, if airport security personnel require physical                  
      inspection, the inspection must be limited to external viewing           
      only.  To avoid unnecessary delays and searches by airport               
      personnel, prior coordination with the servicing security element        
      shall be accomplished to ensure that airport personnel are               
      informed in a timely manner of the transfer of CCI material.             
           c.  Storage and Transportation.                                     
                (1)  General.  Store and transfer CCI equipment and            
      components in a manner that affords protection at least equal to         
      that which is normally provided to weapons, computers,                   
      electronics equipment, etc., and ensures that access and                 
      accounting integrity is maintained.                                      
                (2)  Storage.  Handle CCI's in connection with                 
      warehouse functions provided they are under direct supervision of        
      an individual who meets the access requirements of this chapter.         
                (3)   Transportation.                                          
                     (a)  General.  Ship CCI equipments and components
