Unofficial Vocabulary   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the text: "Recently, when seeking the definition for a traffic analytic term in a well documented Agency working aid, it occurred to me that NSA [National Security Agency] is rich in unofficial vocabulary that has yet to make it into any sanctioned publication or official working aid. There is an extensive body of jargon used not only to make the cryptologic business seem arcane and exalted to outsiders but also to describe the many nonprofessional and unprofessional aspects of life at the Agency. The following is a starter list of some of these words, just a few terms that came readily to mind, augmented by suggestions from the imaginative crew at the Center for Cryptologic History (CCH)."
