To help defend against electronic attack, it is standard good practice for corporate IT systems not to publish internal IP addresses. When accessing internet websites, the IP addresses of all of the computers on HM Treasury's internal office IT system are hidden behind the following IP addresses which are publicly available—195.92.40.49 and 62.25.106.209. These IP addresses are shared with other Government departments who use the Government secure intranet.
