Packet Technologies and Systems Committee, Lawfully Authorized Electronic Surveillance Subcommittee | PTSC LAES

PTSC LAES develops standards and technical reports for lawfully intercepting wireline telecommunication data in line with the U.S.Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) and related Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations. Lawful interception is a security process in which a service provider or network operator is legally obligated to collect and provide law enforcement with intercepted communications of private individuals or organisations. However, technical features that enable lawful interception can be abused by state actors or exploited by malicious actors.
