I moved the following note outside of the article, and onto this talk page:

note: the formatting of the bill itself below needs work.

Does calea stipulate that the company not notify the tapped customer after the fact? Does the com provider have any interest in doing this?

CALEA covers the requirements on Service Providers (originally just phone carriers) to provide easy standardized access for taps, and how such taps work. It says nothing about the legal framework under which a tap is authorized, disclosed, etc. — jesup 14:48, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Vendor links[edit]

Is there any interest in organizing and expanding the list of CALEA equipment and service vendors? Currently there seems to be an awful lot of stuff in the "external links" section. Curiousstranger 00:17, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

ATIS Standard link[edit]

"Removed spammy link to unpublishable copyrighted content - not to any sort of publication at all, but rather, to an abstract and a chance to pay $185 to see actual link."

Not including a link to the ATIS standard (ATIS-1000013.2007) - which unfortunately, as with many standards, is not freely available - makes this page much less useful for folks looking to support CALEA. I think that's a big mistake. That standard is the only CALEA approved standard currently available for non-DOCSIS Broadband ISP's. - Curious Stranger 05:59, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Some Statistics on Wiretapping[edit]

An article that discusses CALEA clarifies there are three types of wiretapping: class-1, where only call information is requested. Class-2 where basic call information is augmented with some additional data. Class-3, live wiretapping. The article asserts that in 2006 there were about 2,900 Class-3 wiretaps in the entire U.S. Over 90% were conducted in California, Florida, New Jersey, New York and Texas. The majority of those 2900 warrants were issued by local and state governments, and not from federal security or law enforcement agencies. According to the aticle the wiretaps had been mostly issued in investigations of drug dealers and child pornographers. For the entire article see http://www.tmcnet.com/ims/0607/ims-feature-article-5.htm

Immunizing carriers from Lawsuits[edit]

During recent discussions of whether to immunize the phone companies against lawsuits for their cooperation with NSA over the past few years, I never see any mention of CALEA, The situation has been greatly complicated from a technical point of view with the advent of digital networks and packet switching, and the FBI and others are said to have demanded that the CALEA rules apply to all such networks including VoIP and email on the internet. I am guessing that NSA persuaded the phone companies after 9-11 that what they were asking was legal, although Joe Nacchio is said to have refused on advice of Quest in-house counsel. (He claims charges against him and recent conviction were retribution by the govt.) So the question is: were the NSA requests legal (surely the administration would say YES), and if so, under CALEA, how can anyone sue the cooperating companies, as is being claimed to be a serious threat justifying the immunization that the President demands? Why don't news articles about this mention CALEA? Taylour 15:36, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

As mentioned above, CALEA deals only with the required monitoring capabilities and policies of service providers. The legality of any surveillence taking place with those capabilities is covered under 50 U.S.C. §§ 18011811 (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) and 18 U.S.C. §§ 25102522 (Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968/Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986), not under CALEA (47 U.S.C. §§ 10011021), which only states:

A telecommunications carrier shall ensure that any interception of communications or access to call-identifying information effected within its switching premises can be activated only in accordance with a court order or other lawful authorization and with the affirmative intervention of an individual officer or employee of the carrier acting in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Commission.

All Internet communication?[edit]

I find it pretty hard to believe that a US law can mandate global surveillance. 92.78.229.152 (talk) 22:39, 2 May 2009 (UTC)


Law Enforcement and Intelligence Agencies?[edit]

Why does it say "Law Enforcement and Intelligence Agencies" in the first paragraph when CALEA by law enforcement wretapping?" Gaintes (talk) 20:38, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Freedom[edit]

Come on who really believes they are free? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.248.197.90 (talk) 19:15, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

I do. It does not matter if the state recognizes my legitimacy- I don't recognize their legitimacy, either. God gave me my freedom, men cannot take it away. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.177.115.125 (talk) 01:16, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Cleaned up and clarified implementation[edit]

The previous implementation section didn't say much about actual explanation, and was in fact erroneous in implying that software or equipment from Narus or Pen-Link were required to be implemented by USA carriers in order to be CALEA compliant. That does not appear to be true for Narus (unless the carrier is AT&T), and for Pen-Link it is certainly not true for any carrier's implementation - a carrier buying a Pen-Link system thinking that it would make them CALEA compliant would in fact be quite mistaken and also out of a lot of capital budget. Both of those companies have focused instead on analysis software that are on the other end of a carrier-based CALEA implementation and therefore not good implementation examples. So I put in more realistic detail about implementation (nothing to do on real switches these days; much to do on IP side), including two vendors that actually provide implementation-products involved in a carrier implementation _and_ were also named in other Wikipedia articles. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lagasek (talkcontribs) 01:50, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Redirect / Disambiguation[edit]

Calea redirects here, but should redirect to a disambiguation page pointing to this page and to Calea ternifolia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.98.57.188 (talk) 06:53, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
