Broadband wiretapping

This has
been hanging in the air for a while already. By all means the police authorities
should have the means to do their job and need to have the means to catch up
with new technologies such as VoIP (internet telephony) and
others.

But nationwide permanent “doors” installed & integrated
at all ISPs networks to capture broadband communication (“at substantial new
compliance cost for broadband providers” = passed on to the consumer) and FBI
approval will be required before new technologies can be introduced?

What is next? Mandatary routines in the OS? An extra chip in your
broadband modem? On your NIC or motherboard? It makes me think of China where
they have 30.000 government employees scanning Chinese webservers & all
incoming + outgoing email to enforce censorship.
