about 15 seconds to do your login. It's not heinously bad, but it's
inconvenient and annoying. Your NOC staff members may resort to

HOW TO GET THEM (following is the "README.crypto-images" from a 12.0S
subdirectory on Use step 5 and log in with your
CCO login.

Instructions for accessing 12.0S crypto images on

 NOTE: when you complete the web appproval process it will say
  "You can now download..", but YOU CAN'T access 12.0S images
