Hi Declan,

I had sent you this before, but as BCC. Perhaps it got eaten by
anti-spam filters? Feel free to publish it on politech.

Subject: English article on Dutch tapping room situation

For c't magazine, I've written an article about the current mess of
the Dutch tapping rooms. This affair has not been limited to the
"internet media", but made it all the way into the Dutch parliamant.
It is a very serious issue that can use a lot of international media
attention. Since the Dutch are the leading country in setting up a
national tapping infrastructure, many countries, such as the Tjech
Republic, are closely monitoring the Dutch situation.

To reach the international audience, I've translated this article and
made it available online in English. Feel free to copy, quote or link
to this information. Many background links (mostly in Dutch),
including video streams of Dutch TV, are included at the end of the


 Dutch tapping room not kosher

 "According to anonymous sources within the Dutch intelligence
 community, all tapping equipment of the Dutch intelligence
 services and half the tapping equipment of the national police
 force, is insecure and is leaking information to Israel. How
 difficult is it to make a back-door in the Dutch Transport of
 Intercepted IP Traffic[1] system?"
