Network experts issue warning about federal eavesdropping

Here this CALEA story is popping up again...this time in the Chronicle's Wired blog:

Networking Experts Warn Against Government Eavesdropping
available at:

"A group of computer scientists today warned that a federal regulation that requires Internet service providers—possibly including colleges—to re-engineer their networks to make it easier for law-enforcement officials to eavesdrop on Internet-based phone calls could make networks more insecure and could harm technological innovation. Among those sounding the alarm were Vinton Cerf, who helped design the Internet, and computer-security experts Matt Blaze, of the University of Pennsylvania, and Steven Bellovin, of Columbia University."
