Q

References to Carnivore in PATRIOT Act

I was wondering what specific section of the PATRIOT Act refers to Carnivore. I can't seem to find it.
The law does not specifically mention Carnivore. It simply makes changes to the wiretap laws in Title III U.S. Code and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). By the time the PATRIOT Act was passed, the FBI stopped using the name Carnivore anyway. The name I heard it referred to as was DCS-1000.
