Submission + - US Gov Assisted Iranian Gov Mobile Wiretaps (arstechnica.com)

bdsesq writes: A story on Ars Technica has highlighted how the US Government's drive for security back doors has enabled the Iranian government to spy on its citizens.

From the Article: For instance, TKTK was lambasted last year for selling telecom equipment to Iran that included the ability to wiretap mobile phones at will. Lost in that uproar was the fact that sophisticated wiretapping capabilities became standard issue for technology thanks to the US government's CALEA rules that require all phone systems, and now broadband systems, to include these capabilities.
