VeriSign to help telecoms with wiretap orders

Monday, 3 June 2002, 6:27 PM EST

Security and Web address provider VeriSign Inc. Monday unveiled a new service to help U.S. telecommunications carriers comply with wiretapping regulations that have gained more prominence since the attacks of Sept. 11.

Mountain View, California-based VeriSign is testing its new ''NetDiscovery'' wiretapping services, which is expected to be commercially available in early July for land-line, wireless and cable carriers, said Terry Kremian, executive vice president of VeriSign's telecommunications services.

Under the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act of 1994, telecommunications companies must have systems that allow law enforcement officials acting with a court order or other legal authorization to intercept targeted telephone calls and access caller ID data quickly.
