Comment RIPA, DV and Protectively Marked assets (Score 2, Informative) 153 153

This has nothing to do with the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act. If some ne'er-do-well has stolen the hard drive, RIPA is not going to entitle them to the key to decrypt it, nor does it make encrypting it in the first place illegal! CESG ( http://www.cesg.gov.uk/ ) assesses a wide variety of cryptographic products as to their suitability for handling protectiveloy marked information, and some of these are restricted to HMG use only!

The paper forms for Developed Vetting themselves are marked "RESTRICTED STAFF (when completed)". See http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/spf/faqs.aspx for information about protectively marked assets, and the DV forms themselves at http://www.hmgcc.gov.uk/clearance.aspx.
