"This directive provides Communications Security (COMSEC) practitioners with the minimum security requirements for the handling of COMSEC material where the normal accounting system is not possible because of board or component level integration activities. This situation requires a separate control and accounting system called an "In-Process (IP)" COMSEC accounting system. This COMSEC materials will be hereinafter designated as IP COMSEC material. For the purpose of this directive, COMSEC practitioners include departmental and private sector COMSEC authorities (sponsors and planners) as well as the custodial personnel appointed to manage and control IP COMSEC material within an IP COMSEC Account."--Introduction, p. 1.
