NANOG 20 - Carnivore Update (Marcus Thomas, FBI)

The Carnivore update presented by the FBI's Marcus Thomas at the 20th NANOG meeting held in Washington DC October 22-24 in Washington DC, is arguably the most complete and detailed briefing yet on the functionality, use and legal implications of Carnivore. This talk was meant for a technical audience, and the dicussion and questions from the audience are very enlightening. Major thanks should go to the folks from Merit/NANOG for managing to schedule this talk, to Marcus Thomas and the FBI for their candor, and the NANOG crowd for asking the important questions.

This and other sessions and tutorials were streamed live via real-player (by MERIT networking), and multicast live in h.261, mpeg-1 and mpeg-2 (by the University of Oregon Videolab. In the future we would encourge remote users to take advantage of the live sessions during the conference. more NANOG info can be found on the web at, including past meetings, slides for talks, and archived real-player streams.
