Wired reports that the FBI has created DCSNet, “a comprehensive wiretap system that intercepts wire-line phones, cellular phones, SMS and push-to-talk systems”. Agents can remotely begin tapping communications and send the data for translation and link analysis. DCSNet leverages CALEA compliant technology that mandates FBI backdoors in telephone switching equipment. The FBI is now targeting communications tools such as Skype.
