Yup.. they told me that actual internet access to where these guys are is restricted.. and they use dedicated PC’s which have external access – which is on normal resgrade type connections.

Most people with carrier licenses are used to this and that LEA’s normally follow a process that is documented related to your ‘Interception Capability Plan’ (ICP) – but one thing that ASIO told me a while ago is that even is an ISP isn’t a carrier with a license, and doesn’t have an ICP, that they still legally must respond to Warrant Requests... not sure how current this is.

They were muttering about doing a road trip talking to ISP’s and explaining this fact to them – but I’ve never heard of it happening.

Subject: [AusNOG] Dealing with ASIO


We recently had a request for information from an individual from ASIO requesting information for one of our clients.
Upon receiving their request for information – the email address originated from a Bigpond email address.

Thinking this is extremely weird - I called ASIO directly and confirmed that this individual works for them and confirmed the phone number. All appears to be ok. I also asked if its normal for email to come from a non asio/gov domain and apparently its normal.....

Anyone see this ? Seems extremely odd.
