The term “lawful interception” (LI) describes the process by which law enforcement agencies conduct electronic surveillance of circuit and packet-mode communications as authorized by judicial or administrative order.

Each country has its own criteria for defining criminal or terrorist activities; the purpose of LI is to gather evidence to detect and prevent such activities. In the United States, the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) sets forth how service providers must support lawful interception. Abroad, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) drives adoption of standards for telecommunications, broadband, and related technologies in Europe and other countries.
