In the recently revealed [0] NSA Consolidated Cryptography Program (CPP) 
goals for FY13, there was one as yet still redacted word [1]:

    * (TS//SI//REL TO USA, FVEY) Complete enabling for [XXXXXX] 
encryption chips used in Virtual Private Network and Web encryption 
devices. [CCP_00009].

What's the XXXXXX ?  The full length of the redaction can be seen in the 
graphic, about 15 letters.


[0] A related question is where were these slides posted on the Guardian 
and NYT sites?  Which did which redaction?
