This report continues an examination of the classification process used for academic research related to national security. This paper concerns the structure of the classification system itself and finds the system to be overly extensive, not only providing minimal benefit to national security, but partially endangering the nation by removing the security benefits gained from the free sharing of information related to scientific progress.
