08/05/2004 Archived Entry: "Tapping (and evading taps on) VoIP"

DID ANYBODY FAINT WITH SHOCK when the FCC declared that VoIP phone services have to be configured for easy tapping by the alphabet soupers? ... No, guess not. It's just one more thing, one more thing, one more thing, one more thing freedom lovers will have to monkeywrench or work around. Fortunately, those of Advanced Geekitude are already preparing their tactics, like the good old Slashdot crew.

"I guess me and my terrorist buddies will just have to go back to using encrypted email."

"Just speak in Navajo pig latin with a Klingon accent."

But as one Slashdotter reminds us, the world of total identifiability and total "accountability" for Internet content will be a grim and dreadful place.
