Abbreviations, Acronyms, Nicknames and Codewords

The communications security and intelligence branch is notorious for its abbreviations, acronyms, nicknames and codewords, and recently we learned a number of new NSA codewords from many classified documents which Edward Snowden handed over to The Guardian.

Here we provide two listings, one of abbreviations and acronyms, and one of nicknames and codewords, to get somewhat more grip on these things:

- Abbreviations and Acronyms

- Nicknames and Codewords

Listings like this can never be complete, and therefore expect new entries to be added gradually, as well as updates of existing entries.
