RIPA Part III Code of Practice


The revised draft of the Code of Practice for Part III (INVESTIGATION OF ELECTRONIC DATA PROTECTED BY ENCRYPTION ETC.) of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 was issued today. I would stick it up but I don't have any webspace available under this nym, so if somebody knows how to upload a 229kB pdf to Blogspot, let me know, please.

They seem to have taken some notice of what was said but have scythed away from the full re-write I thought was necessary. Obviously, given that the actual law was passed years ago - and the CoP has to reflect the language and intent of the law, the Home Office team were not going to neuter it in the way the privacy activists and much of the academic security community wished.

Will post more once I have read it in detail.
