Departmental ICT

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster with reference to the answer of 4 November 2008, Official Report, columns 336-7W, on Government Departments: information and communications technology, which IP addresses are used by (a) his Department and (b) computers in the offices of its (i) Ministers, (ii) communications officials and (iii) special advisers. (241946)

In accordance with standard good information security practice and to help defend against electronic attack, my department does not publish internal IP addresses for its corporate IT systems. When accessing external services such as internet websites, the IP addresses of all the computers on my Department's internal office IT system are hidden behind the following IP addresses which are publicly available—195.92.40.49 and 62.25.106.209.
