EFF: “On Sunday, the United Kingdoms Prime Minister David Cameron and the Interior Ministry were forced to defend a sweeping wiretapping proposal, which would aim to monitor every single email, text message, and phone call flowing through the whole country. The proposal would likely force all UK Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to install black boxes on their systems that use Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology, which would give authorities access to all communications data without a warrant or any judicial oversight. Law enforcement would have access to IP addresses, email addresses, when you send an email, to whom you send it, and how frequentlyas well as corresponding data for phone calls and text messages. The government has claimed this proposal is needed to fight terrorism and serious crimes, but of course, it would be available to law enforcement for all purposes.”
