Badan Intelijen Negara, (State Intelligence Agency), commonly referred to as BIN, is Indonesia's primary intelligence agency. Prior to 2001, it was known as Bakin (Badan Koordinasi Intelijen Negara - State Intelligence Coordinating Agency); its name was changed as part of a general restructuring of the agency.[1] BIN is responsible both for co-ordinating information sharing and operations between Indonesia's other intelligence agencies and for mounting operations on its own.

At the time of its name change in 2001, BIN's role in co-ordinating was deemphasised, but, in the wake of the 2002 Bali bombing, that aspect of the agency's operations was the subject of renewed focus as part of an all-around expansion of the agency's budget and operations.[2]

BIN has been the subject of criticism from human rights groups for its treatment of dissidents and human rights advocates in Indonesia.[3]

The agency is currently headed by Sutiyoso, as of 15 July 2015 ;[4] led before by Sutanto from 21 October 2009 to 19 October 2011, Syamsir Siregar from 2004 to 2009, and led by Abdullah Mahmud Hendropriyono from 2001 to 2004.[5]
