Ran across it browsing jobs
Some technology expo that requires a security clearance of some sort to attend, but that's all beside the point. Just thought I would post it if anyone is curious or needs it for future use


Edit: Didn't notice half of it was repeated
And yeah, looks like some of them might be in order. This has caused me to research and see if I can't find a full, ordered list.

That is nowhere near the full list of clearances. Hold on, while I get them.

This is the FULL list in it's entirety. However, some clearances are classified in themselves, and are created solely for certain projects, and designated as such. These types of clearances expire with the completion of the project or experiment. For example, the clearance to access a certain computer program may just be limited to 3 people in the world, therefore the need for specific clearances is imperative. A password and username would be delegated, and clearance set (codenamed). Upon expiration of the project, the clearance would be void.

These clearances listed below are "set" clearances.

What computer program would be so secret that only 3 people can access it in the world? I know you were just using it as an example but would something really be that secret that only 3 people could access it?

This seems like a dangerous topic discussing Security Clearances in public, dont you think?

Yes. There is things out there that are "limited" to as few people as possible. There are things out there so secret that no one can know about them.

No, it is not dangerous. Most of these clearances can be found anywhere on the web. Discussing them and what they mean is perfectly legal. Trust me, I know.

You just said that only a few people can get them now you say they can be found on the web.

The clearance itself does not reveal any specific information, only the fact that the person has that level of clearance. I could tell you right now that I have a Top Secret-SSBI / SCI / SI / TK / G / B / HCS Clearance, however, you have no idea what I do for a living, right?

nice list starchild


would this be in presented in some kind of order?

Also, out of personal curiosity, what would one need to get on the Ohio class USS Pennsylvania (my father had to go though some kind of backround check when he went on it a year or 2 back....I'm still envious) ?

They aren't - I believe that was his point

The only order they are in is alphabetical, not lowest to highest. There is no such thing as a "supreme" clearance. Even someone with a very high clearance, say for example the Top Secret-SAP-TS/SAP, would not be able to access information not specifically related to their "need to know'. Understand.

As far as the whole "access" thing goes, I can tell you about all kinds of security clearances and stuff, but it doesn't mean I am giving you "information".

Just because you know what kinds of clearances are out there, doesn't mean you know what they are for, when and where they are used, what the requirements are, etc. There is nothing illegal about discussing clearances, so let's just get that out of our system right now, alright? No need to be nervous people. Have no fear, for StarChild is here!

Well, it depends on what he did on the ship. There isn't a general clearance for ships. A chef on the boat has no clearance, but the guy working in Command and Control has a Top Secret. Any idea what he did?

No idea - he is civilian though. I know that he was allowed acces to preatty much everything. He was allowed where ever the nukes are fired from and where the ship is conroled. Sorry about my lack of technical terms - my interest is more in airplanes.

Even if you did want an answer that was classified I wouldn't give it to you!


The letters are designations for certain levels of access, according to specific agencies and departments. They vary from agency to agency. Most of the letter designations you see in these clearances are either the level of investigation conducted on the person in question (who has obtained the clearance), or the level of access this person has within the agency or department they operate in.

The "need to know" ultimately dictates everything. For example, me and you could both have a Top Secret-Crypto SCI / TK / G / HCS-P clearance, but I might have more access than you would, depending on my job description and how much "need to know" I am required to have to perform my duties.

Just because you have a certain clearance level does not mean that you are entitled to all information within that spectrum. You are only authorized to access the material you need to complete your mission and duties, that's it.

Do you understand now?
