Stone Ghost

STONEGHOST or "Stone Ghost", is a codename for a network operated by the United States' Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for information sharing and exchange between the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.[1] Other sources say that New Zealand is also participating, and that STONEGHOST therefore connects, and is maintained by the defense intelligence agencies of all Five Eyes countries.[2]

STONEGHOST does not carry Intelink-Top Secret information and was previously known as Intelink-C and may also be referred to as "Q-Lat" or "Quad link".[1] It is a highly secured network with strict physical and digital security requirements. The network not only hosts information about military topics, but also about SIGINT, foreign intelligence and national security.[2]

2012 Canadian Spy Case

Royal Canadian Navy intelligence officer Sub-Lt. Jeffrey Delisle pleaded guilty on 10 October 2012 to charges including having downloaded and sold information from the STONEGHOST system to the Russian spy agency GRU.[3][4] He was sentenced to 20 years in penitentiary, minus time served on February 6, 2013 for contravening the Security of Information Act.[5][6]
