Intercettare Skype e il VoIP


Press release di Eurojust (via Repubblica):

Eurojust is a new European Union body established in 2002 to enhance the effectiveness of the competent authorities within Member States when they are dealing with the investigation and prosecution of serious cross-border and organised crime.

At the request of Direzione Nazionale Antimafia in Rome, the Italian Desk at Eurojust will play a key role in the coordination and cooperation of the investigations on the use of internet telephony systems (VoIP), such as “Skype”. Eurojust will be available to assist all European law enforcement and prosecution authorities in the Member States. The purpose of Eurojust’s coordination role is to overcome the technical and judicial obstacles to the interception of internet telephony systems, taking into account the various data protection rules and civil rights.

UPDATE 2

… che poi, anche ammesso di voler percorrere una strada di questo tipo (limitare o bloccare specifiche applicazioni), non penseranno che la gente stia lì a guardare… oggi ne parla anche Stefano qui.
