Communications surveillance is now a global business. Over the past 
three decades, law enforcement and national security agencies have 
worked with the private sector to ensure that all new forms of 
communications are capable of being monitored. A range of new 
international legal agreements provide the foundation for this 

Who are the key players in this new industry? What mechanisms are 
being developed to build surveillance into the architecture of 
communications? What forms of technology are being used to intercept 
communications - and to resist interception?  

This unique one-day conference will explore these technical and legal 
questions, and provide a public forum for open discussion.
