Subsentio Responds To Going Dark Proceedings



DENVER, Colorado, April 12, 2011 — Subsentio, a Trusted Third Party service bureau for Lawfully Authorized Electronic Surveillance (LAES), recently responded to the current proceedings in the U. S. House Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security regarding “Going Dark: Lawful Electronic Surveillance in the Face of New Technologies.” In its statement, Subsentio addressed the fundamental question: who should control the development and use of LAES technology?

Subsentio’s document, which has been included in the public record, calls for continued Industry cooperation to deliver effective LAES capabilities while also supporting the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) request for the funding of a National Domestic Communications Assistance Center (NDCAC) to be used for individually tailored solutions in exceptional circumstances. It also argued that security and privacy concerns are best handled by private industry and offered suggestions on enforcement that would bring existing LAES laws in line with similar mandates to promote more widespread compliance.

“The Going Dark proceedings are the most important LAES discussions we have had on Capitol Hill since CALEA (Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act) was enacted in 1994”, said Joel Margolis, Senior Regulatory Counsel for Subsentio. “Since Subsentio is uniquely positioned to serve the needs of both industry and law enforcement, we have a perspective that can effectively address both sides of the debate as an honest broker in the proceedings.”

Ward Jackson, Subsentio’s Chief Security officer added, “We agree with Law Enforcement’s assertion that it is facing a growing challenge in tracking criminal activities on new technologies. However, we also feel that the basic premise of CALEA is correct. Private industry is best positioned to assist law enforcement with intercepting these new technologies. Otherwise, we feel the challenge is just too burdensome for Law Enforcement to handle on its own.”

Subsentio’s statement is available on its website along with other publicly filed statements regarding the “Going Dark” proceedings. Subsentio’s solutions have been fully tested with law enforcement and are currently being used to successfully perform lawful intercepts on a variety of new and old technologies. It is a cost effective and reliable method of performing CALEA compliant electronic surveillance and, like all of Subsentio’s Trusted Third Party services it is backed by Subsentio’s full indemnification against non-compliance penalties.

Subsentio, Inc. is trusted by both the private carriers and the law enforcement agencies to perform court ordered lawful electronic surveillance. Based in Centennial, CO the company has national, regional and rural service provider clients. Information can be found at
