That big NSA phone call database we've all heard about is just part of the government's
plan to invade our privacy.

New CALEA regulations from the FCC are now trying to force internet providers to open up
access to VOIP calls for the purposes of law enforcement,
from those who wish to hide the content of their calls.

Section 103(a)(1) of CALEA requires telecommunications carriers to establish the capability of providing to LEAs call content information, pursuant to a court order or other lawful authorization; and section 103(a)(2) of CALEA requires telecommunications carriers to establish the capability of providing to LEAs reasonably available call-identifying information (CII), pursuant to a court order or other lawful authorization. [47 U.S.C. ยง 1002(a)(1), (a)(2)]

Fortunately individual users can still use one of several strong encryption methods to
keep their conversations private.
Skype, PGP, CounterPath's X-Lite, Gizmo or SJPhone to name a few.

PGP offers strong encryption for your Hard Disks, Chat, e-mail and VOIP calls.

PGP also stands firmly that they will not issue anyone a back door code to break
the encryption.

For those who didn't know, Skype is offering free calls from a PC to US and Canada for the next few months. In case it didn't sink, I repeat you can use long distance for free now.

And their encription is reputedly on of the best.
