Tracking Internet Usage

Under Section 216 of the Act, courts are required to order the installation of a pen register and a trap and trace device31 to track both telephone and Internet "dialing, routing, addressing and signaling information"32 anywhere within the United States when a government attorney has certified that the information to be obtained is "relevant to an ongoing criminal investigation."33 Section 216 states that orders issued under its authority cannot be permit the tracking of the "contents of any wire or electronic communications." However, in the case of email messages and Internet usage, the Act does not address the complex question of where the line should be drawn between "dialing, routing, addressing and signaling information" and "content." Unlike telephone communications, where the provision of dialing information does not run the risk of revealing content,35 email messages move together in packets that include both address and content information. Also, the question of whether a list of web sites and web pages that have been visited constitutes "dialing, routing, addressing and signaling information" or "content" has yet to be resolved.

By providing no guidance on this question, Section 216 gives the government wide latitude to decide what constitutes "content." Of special concern is the fact that Section 216 authorizes the government to install its new Carnivore or DCS1000 system, a formidable tracking device that is capable of intercepting all forms of Internet activity, including email messages, web page activity, and Internet telephone communications.36 Once installed on an Internet Service Provider (ISP), Carnivore devours all of the communications flowing through the ISP's network-not just those of the target of surveillance but those of all users-and not just tracking information but content as well. The FBI claims that through the use of filters, Carnivore "limits the messages viewable by human eyes to those which are strictly included within the court order."37 However, neither the accuracy of Carnivore's filtering system, nor the infallibility of its human programers, has been demonstrated. While Section 216 requires the government to maintain a record when it utilizes Carnivore, this record need not be provided to the court until 30 days after the termination of the order, including any extensions of time.38 Section 216 is not scheduled to expire.

I don't know what the big deal about tracking is in this day and age. You know those discount cards you get from grocery stores that you can put on your keychain? and every time you use them you get the sale prices? Those track you. Using a credit card, anywhere, tracks you. Security cameras are on street corners, mini marts, highways, businesses, etc., they all track you. Sad though it is, our every second on this planet is practically tracked by someone for something. Unless you're doing something bad, it shouldn't be a major fear in your life.

The world we live in now, is frightening. You are a prisoner in your own country. No it isn't as bad as overseas but if we let people take away our rights and freedoms here, we are know better then the Husseins, Hitlers of the world. We should not have to live in fear. People have gotten so desperate nowaways that they want this and that to keep them safe and it has infringed on other's freedom. You will never be absolutely safe, that's impossible and to think that is plain ignorance. It will only make it easier for those who want to take over our society like another Hussein perhaps to follow us and if he doesn't like what he sees, we are died, like 1 million of his people in the graves over in Iraq in shallow deep holes as graves. True Americans were never meant to live like this, and our forefathers and ancestors are twisting in their graves because of the stupidity of the Nation and its people in it. Our freedoms were given to us to protect and we are doing a lousy job doing that, because of fear, politics, jealousy, god of time and greed. When people want to go back to the past for comfort, instead of going toward the future, we here in America are in a bad way. And what I learned from school is that DIVIDED WE WILL FALL, and that is what is going to happen, I feel this coming to our future. Women's intuition, I have know idea, but the feeling is growing stronger everyday. Even the earth is talking back to us, that alot of people don't want to see, or don't take the time to see. For example, the volcano in Yellowstone Park. Or the earth's magnetic field going back to original North.
