I've been part of a group of five security researchers (with Steve
Bellovin, David Farber, Peter Neumann, and Gene Spafford) who were
asked by the Chief Scientist at the Justice Department to identify
technical issues with the FBI's "Carnivore" system that should be
addressed by an independent review.  As readers of this list know, the
contractor chosen by DoJ to conduct the review, IITRI, recently
released a draft report of its findings.  We've studied that report
and continue to have serious concerns about Carnivore.  Our report,
which we've released this morning, can be found at
