Handling Classified Information
sobtaining   information  of  direct  or  indirect  military value.   This   condition   results   from   the   establishment and   maintenance   of   protective   measures   that   ensure   a state   of   inviolability   from   hostile   acts   or   influences. SECURITY   VIOLATION   —Any   failure   to comply   with   regulations   relative   to   the   security   of classified   material   that   does   not   result   in   compromise or  subjection  to  compromise. Q8.   What   description   best   defines   the   term   access? CATEGORIES   OF   CLASSIFIED INFORMATION Official   information   or   material   that   requires protection   in   the   interest   of   national   security   must   be classified   in   one   of   three   categories,   Top   Secret, Secret,   or   Confidential,   depending   upon   the   degree   of its   significance   to   national   security.   No   other categories  may  be  used  to  identify    official  information or   material   as   requiring   protection   in   the   interest   of national   security. Top  Secret Top   Secret   is   the   designation   that   is   applied   only to  information  or  material  of  which  the  unauthorized disclosure  of  which  could  reasonably  be  expected  to cause   exceptionally   grave   damage   to   national   security. Examples   of   exceptionally   grave   damage   include armed   hostilities   against   the   United   States   or   its   allies; disruption  of  foreign  relations  vitally  affecting  the national   security;   the   compromise   of   vital   national d e f e n s e    p l a n s    o r    c o m p l e x    c r y p t o l o g i c    a nd communications    intelligence    systems;    the    revelation of   sensitive   intelligence   operations;   and   the   disclosure of   scientific   or   technological   developments   vital   to national   security. Secret Secret   is   the   designation   that   is   applied   only   to information   or   material   of   which   the   unauthorized disclosure  of  which  could  reasonably  be  expected  to cause   serious   damage   to   national   security.   Examples of   serious   damage   include   disruption   of   foreign relations   significantly   affecting   the   national   security; significant   impairment   of   a   program   or   policy   directly related   to   national   security;   revelation   of   significant military   plans   or   intelligence   operations;   compromise of   significant   military   plans   or   intelligence   operations; a n d    c o m p r o m i s e    o f    s i g n i f i c a n t    s c i e n t i f i c    or technological    developments    relating    to    national security. Confidential Confidential   is   the   designation   that   is   applied   to information   or   material   of   which   the   unauthorized disclosure   could   reasonably   be   expected   to   cause identifiable  damage  to  national  security.  Examples  of identifiable   damage   include   the   compromise   of information   that   indicates   strength   of   ground,   air,   and naval   forces   in   the   United   States   and   overseas   areas; the   disclosure   of   technical   information   used   for training,   maintenance,   and   inspection   of   classified munitions  of  war;  and  the  revelation  of  performance characteristics,   test   data,   design,   and   production   data on   munitions   of   war. For  Official  Use  Only For   Official   Use   Only   is   NOT  a   category   of classification   but   is   assigned   to   certain   official information   not   within   the   range   of   the   rules   for safeguarding   information   in   the   interest   of   national security,   but   may   require   protection   according   to   law or  in  the  public  interest. Restricted   Data   or   Formerly Restricted   Data Restricted  Data,  like  For  Official  Use  Only,  is  NOT a   category   of   classification   but   is   assigned   because   it concerns   data   (information)   covering   the   (1)   design, manufacture,  or  use  of  atomic  or  nuclear  weapons;  (2) the  production  of  special  nuclear  material;  or  (3)  the  use of  special  nuclear  material  in  the  production  of  energy, but  not  to  include  data  declassified  or  removed  frorn  the Restricted   Data   category   under   Section   142   of   the Atomic   Energy   Act.   Formerly   Restricted   Data   is information  removed  from  the  Restricted  Data  category upon  determination  jointly  by  the  Department  of  Energy and  DOD  that  such  information  relates  primarily  to  the military   use   of   atomic   weapons   and   that   such information  can  be  adequately  safeguarded  as  classified defense   information.   Such   information   is,   however, treated   the   same   as   Restricted   Data   for   purposes   of foreign    dissemination. Material  bearing  the  Restricted  Data  or  Formerly Restricted   Data   warning   notices   may   not   be   issued outside   authorized   channels   without   the   permission   of the   originator   or   higher   DOD   authority.   (Refer   to   the Department   of   the   Navy   Information   and   Personnel Security  Program  Regulation,  OPNAVINST   5510.1.) 2-7
