FBI pushes for broadband wiretap powers
Last modified: March 12, 2004, 9:36 AM PST
All broadband Internet providers, including cable modem and DSL companies, would have to rewire their networks to support easy wiretapping by police, according to a new proposal from the FBI.
The long-awaited proposal, submitted to the Federal Communications Commission on Wednesday, has been crafted so broadly that it would outlaw the introduction of new broadband services that did not support ready wiretapping access. Companies currently offering broadband would be given 15 months to comply.

"The importance and the urgency of this task cannot be overstated," reads the proposal, which is also backed by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration. "The ability of federal, state and local law enforcement to carry out critical electronic surveillance is being compromised today."

"It is a very big deal and will be very costly for the Internet and the deployment of new technologies," said Stewart Baker, a partner at law firm Steptoe & Johnson, who represents Internet providers. "This is a very serious request. Law enforcement is very serious about it."

The origins of this debate date back nine years, to when the FBI persuaded Congress to enact a controversial law called the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, or CALEA. Louis Freeh, FBI director at the time, testified in 1994 that emerging technologies such as call forwarding, call waiting and cellular phones had frustrated surveillance efforts.

Congress responded to the FBI's concern by requiring that telecommunications services rewire their networks to provide police with guaranteed access for wiretaps. Legislators also granted the FCC substantial leeway in defining what types of companies must comply.

Not just US. The same shit is happening in the whole World. Ive heard they are trying to make much more severe moves in France, that ISP gonna be responsible for the stuff you put on the net. In that way, ISPs gonna need to remove buletin boards and other active content stuff.

We are heading toward the Big Brother very fast. We need to get up while we have the time to do something about it. It is our last moment to do so!

not necessarily...since the cost will undoubtedly force some companies out of the market..and there will prolly be many more ex-employees of such companies than there will be jobs installing surveillance capacity...

and not only will there be negative financial consequences..but any good criminals would be smart enough to use encryption software that would make the wiretaps useless...they wont catch very many big fish..but it will make the ISP market much less competitive...

"Bill Clinton was the best president of my lifetime, and that scares me." Relax, you're only, what, 12. I get to say that Richard Nixon was the best president in my lifetime. And that's REALLY scary.
