Could Your VoIP Phone Be Wiretapped?

Court upholds ruling requiring Internet phone providers to offer wiretapping capabilities to law enforcement agencies.

WASHINGTON -- A U.S. Federal Communications Commission ruling requiring VoIP providers to give law enforcement agencies wiretapping capabilities is legal, a court ruled today.

"This ruling threatens both civil liberties and technology innovation," CDT Policy Director Jim Dempsey said in an e-mail. "This decision threatens the privacy rights of innocent Americans as well as the ability of technology companies to innovate freely."

What do you think about this?

VOIP takes data as packets through the Internet Cloud only right and hence the security level is as good as the current Internet Security levels.

Data Integrity and Best Efficiency can be in circuit switched networks and also in GSM or CDMA.

With reference to security of data, I guess, CDMA should be the best bet choice.
