Cisco’s Eavesdropping Apparatus

In response to what it terms its “customer’s needs,” Cisco will start to embed “lawful interception” capability into its router products. [C|Net News.com] What’s really going on here is that the convergence of packet-switched and circuit-switched networks is accelerating. So the law enforcement community is no longer content to give the Internet and ISPs a free ride when it comes to digital wiretapping, despite the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA).
