Dear Ms. Sandvik:

This is in response to your enclosed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for "all briefs, emails, records, and any other documents from the CERT Coordination Center (CERT/CC) at Carnegie Mellon University on, about, mentioning, or concerning an attack on the Tor anonymity network, created between January 2014 and October 2014." We received your request on November 10, 2014 and assigned it FOIA case number 15-F-0297.

However, please note that your request was misdirected to this office for processing. Please be aware that this FOIA office only processes requests for the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JS). There is not a central FOIA processing point for the entire Department of Defense (DoD) records management, but is, instead, delegated to those officials of the military services, various DoD components, and federal agencies that generate and/or maintain the records being sought.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), who operates its own FOIA office, would have cognizance over the information you have requested. You may request these records, if they exist, directly from them at the following address:

Department of Homeland Security
Departmental Disclosure Officer
Washington, DC 20528

This action closes your request with this office. There are no assessable fees associated with this response in this instance.
