VeriSign to launch wiretapping tool for law enforcement

Updated:

(San Jose-AP) -- VeriSign Incorporated Monday announced a service to help telecommunications companies comply with federal wiretap regulations.

The company's NetDiscovery Service is scheduled to be launched by the end of June. The service will help carriers comply with a 1994 law requiring them to have equipment that allows law enforcement to quickly intercept phone calls and data.

Telecom companies have until June 30 to comply or request an extension. After the deadline, companies could be fined up to 10 (t) thousand dollars a day for each intercept request from a law enforcement agency they cannot handle.

VeriSign would not say how much the service will cost.
