Submission + - Deep packet inspection meets Net neutrality, CALEA (

Imagine a device that allows one user access only to e-mail and the Web while allowing a higher-paying user to use VoIP and BitTorrent. Imagine a device that protects against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, scans for viruses passing across the network, and siphons off requested traffic for law enforcement analysis. Imagine all of this being done in real time, for 900,000 simultaneous users, and you get a sense of the power of deep packet inspection (DPI) network appliances. ..the time to debate the proper limits of shaping, blocking, and spying is now, before they become ubiquitous features of the ISP landscape."
