Australia gets 'deluge' of US secret data, prompting a new data facility

Facility hints at Australia's involvement in data collection.

The Australian government has been building a state-of-the art, secret data storage facility just outside Canberra to enable intelligence agencies to deal with a ''data deluge'' siphoned from the internet and global telecommunications networks.

Privately labelled by one Defence official as ''the new black vault'', the data centre is one of the few visible manifestations of Australia's deep involvement in mass surveillance and intelligence collection operations such as the US National Security Agency's PRISM program revealed last week by US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden.

Australian intelligence agencies receive what Defence intelligence officials describe as ''huge volumes'' of ''immensely valuable'' information derived from PRISM and other US signals intelligence collection programs.
