The Project 2049 Institute, young Washington think tank with a focus on Asia-Pacific region,has just published this interesting, because synthetic document on the Third Department of Defence Staff of the Chinese. More or less the equivalent of the U.S. NSA, which is one oft he main structures of Beijing Sigint Intelligence, responsible for a significant part of the cyber operations.
The report examines the structure of command, the operating divisions (twelve) and research facilities connected to it.... enjoy

I wonder how this development will affect network exploitation by china in the future. A separate SIGINT counterpart to the NSA, one can assume, will only lead to a streamlining of their present operations. I don't really know much about SIGINT, because I am not a crypto, but a Lieutenant back at my last command was talking about developments he had seen coming from China, and this isn't unlike one of the things he mentioned. Really I am just surprised an institution like this hadn't arisen earlier, as China has always been notoriously aggressive in their collection attempts against the US military.
