The Guild of Technomancers has several sites across Middle Earth.
We have five ultimately expanded to six primary bases of operation. Each one includes its own dedicated Command & Control Facility, Research Facility, and NDA Data Center. If one is taken out then we still can coordinate with each other.
The first is the Alpha-1 Headquarters located in Rivendell. Codename: The Hacker Shelter >>

All five now turned to six of these installations are in constant 24/7 communication with each other sharing command and control information, intelligence, research data, operational information, messages etc. They all have a large Numbers Station Erebus Terminal as well in order to send out messages to agents in the field.
This real time communication is done over the Command & Control Network (C&Cnet) which is a closed loop F2F (Friend-to-Friend) Darknet End-to-End Encrypted Network which is not accessible from outside of these sites except via a series of heavily guarded Gateway Nodes that can allow outside traffic into the Darknet.
Only the strongest cryptographic algorithms and protocols are used in the C&Cnet. Specific Details on the Cryptographic Security can be found in its own document.
The C&Cnet Interfax Messaging System uses an modified I2P (Invisible Internet Project) Bote Garlic Routing MixMinion type protocol which splits the messages into tiny encrypted packets and randomly scatters them across the C&Cnet to make sure that the messages are untraceable.
The Ultra Strong Encryption allows C&Cnet traffic to be sent over any comm channels without compromising the security. It is completely impossible to tell if any type of traffic is C&Cnet traffic. However this capability is only used in an emergency when the Closed Loop Lines are down.
The C&Cnet Gateway Nodes and all network endpoints are protected by a extremely sophisticated Endpoint Protection System called MITHERIL. This system consists of some of the best anti-malware and cyber security technology including things like redundent firewalls, packet filters, virtualized sandbox envionments, active scanning of all incoming and outgoing packets for malware, rootkit detection, tamper detection etc.
