Intelligence Protection Organization of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (Persian: سازمان حفاظت اطلاعات سپاه پاسداران انقلاب اسلامی‎) is an Iranian intelligence agency within the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and part of Council for Intelligence Coordination.[1]

The agency split from Intelligence unit of IRGC in 1984, and was mainly a military intelligence unit. In 1991, the agency was restructured as an independent organization reporting to the Supreme Leader of Iran, mainly tasked with IRGC personnel surveillance and combating espionage inside the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.[2]
