Lawful Interception (LI) is currently in development internationally and the area of IP interception poses significant regulatory, as well as implementation, challenges. The presentation attempts to elucidate major legal and technical issues as well as citing the vendors, operators and governments involved in creating the standards and solutions.

In the European context, all EU countries have been mandated to have LI capabilities in place and be able to provide assistance to other member states when tracking transborder criminals. Public Communications Providers must tread warily between privacy concerns and LI requirements. Especially with the new talks concerning Interpol, Enfopol, & Data Retention, communication over public channels is anything but private. The conditions for interception and the framework for oversight is not widely known.
