Top bureaucrats will be able to swap classified material on the Net with the launch this week of a "Secure Electronic Environment" linking Treasury, the State Services Commission and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.

    The system should reduce the need to courier sensitive information between departments and make it easier for policy-makers to share information and work jointly on projects from their desktop computers.

    But the system will not offer quite the level of security originally envisaged, as "compromises" have been made to ensure it is usable. Instead of secure individual-to-individual e-mail, it will only offer security between departments.
