    I just downloaded CAMELOID. Free linux open source VoIP software. They really went all out on the encryption part. There is so much information about it on their site: http://cameloid.sourceforge.net

    I just thought people like you would want to know about.

    Yes it's a post by a newmember, but it doesn't seem like spam to me !

    I had a look and it seems like it could be very useful. Also it comes from SourceForge which is a good sign. Here's just a little bit of info.

    . . .

    Following its release, law enforcement identified a number of capabilities absent from Issue 1. Since that time, CableLabs has actively sought law enforcement input into its technical specification process to ensure that law enforcement's need to intercept communications was addressed adequately. The recent release of Issue 4 of the PacketCable Electronic Surveillance Specification represents the culmination of the cooperative endeavor between CableLabs & Law enforcement in establishing a set of technical requirements to facilitate law enforcement's future use of court-authorized electronic surveillance.

    . . .

    Police can now wiretap all Internet phone calls on Cox Communications' network, kicking off a new era for law enforcement. The cable & broadband provider turned to security specialist VeriSign to supply the know-how, announced Monday. Law enforcement officers can now eavesdrop on every call made by Cox's nearly 1 million VoIP phone subscribers. Police can already tap calls on 12 of Cox's 13 phone markets because they rely on traditional telephone equipment equipped with eavesdropping abilities. But in December, Cox deployed VoIP, a much cheaper alternative that uses the unregulated Internet.

    . . .

    etc etc

    Lots of companys involved in this, check out the long list !

    My isp just made VoIP available. I've tried the software version (seeing my modem is a VoIP modem), and it doesn't seem quite the quality of a phone call (and I've enabled QoS to it's best setting in my modem).

    Maybe the hardware version is better.
