Matt Blaze and Steve Bellovin on Open Internet Wiretapping. I agree that if the FBI’s Carnivore project is to be acceptable at all, then full disclosure is required. If they open it up and show everyone exactly how it will work, then it might be OK. If they don’t, there’s no way it’s OK. I really wish all of the criminals and terrorists that the FBI talks about would start using PGP, so that these sorts of devices would be demonstrably useless.
