Honestly, I expect replies to this question to range between zero and none,
but I have to ask it.
I understand the CALEA tap mechanism for most ISPs, generally, works like
* we outsource our CALEA management to company X
* we don't even know there's been a request until we've gotten a bill from X.
I've never even thought of the idea of outsourcing CALEA requests. That is probably because I would never consider
Perhaps we are in the minority, but we scrutinize every request of any sort to ensure it has jurisdiction and is valid.
I can't even fathom the thought of trusting a third party for this.
