All former DNSO GA members other interested stakeholders/users,

  Seems that Verisign is very friendly in snooping into your
communications with anyone.  I wonder if Verisign will be 
notifying those it is getting requests for wire-tapping of 
it's customers? Chuck or Tony can  you give us all some 
direct answer on this??

 Refrence see:
Note wiretap-hardware provider VeriSign's very wiretap-friendly stand:

The immediate declaratory statement sought in the Joint Petition
concerning the applicability of CALEA to packet-mode broadband
access  and telephony services should be considered. Such a statement
seems fully  consistent with Congress? enactment of CALEA, with
previous related  Commission findings, and the arguments raised above.
> The technology, standards, and equipment exist to accomplish this
capability  requirement at reasonable cost.  VeriSign already provides
CALEA services for precisely  this kind of broadband telephony,
and supports a declaration.
