This talk addresses the issue of reconciling the needs of law enforcement and national security with the continuing evolution of computer and communications technology. It will describe the needs of both the law enforcement and national security communities including their current technical requirements and solutions. It will then describe technological trends and show how technical imperatives will render current solutions ineffective. It concludes with a description of possible directions that may be used to meet both law enforcement and national security needs while accounting for both technical evolution and social rights.
