FCC Rules VoIP Must Be Tappable
Posted by timothy on Wednesday August 04, @06:51PM
from the that-brother-keeps-growing-bigger dept.
pengie2 writes "The FCC has unanimously approved the U.S. Justice
Department's bid to expand CALEA to broadband and VoIP networks,
according to reports from SecurityFocus and News.com. This means,
following a mandatory public comment period, service providers will
have to wire their networks for easy law enforcement surveillance, the
way phone companies do now. The feds have wanted this for a long time."
Ebon Praetor adds a link to Reuters' version, writing "In addition, the
FCC has decided that the push-to-talk, or walkie-talkie, functions
available on phones from Nextel should also be subject to the same
tapping regulations that regular phones are."
