Q

Carnivore-type surveillance system in the UK

If there a similar system to Carnivore in the UK?

I don't do any work with the UK, and I don't have any idea if they do or not. However, a simple sniffer can capture everything, and it is not unreasonable to assume they could build a Carnivore-like system if they wanted to.
