Abstract: Carnivore is a surveillance technology, a software program housed in a computer unit, which is installed by properly authorized FBI agents on a particular Internet Service Provider's (ISP) network. The Carnivore software system is used together with a tap on the ISP's network to “intercept, filter, seize and decipher digital communications on the Internet”. The system is described as a “specialized network analyzer” that works by “sniffing” a network and copying and storing a warranted subset of its traffic. In the FBI's own words “Carnivore chews on all data on the network, but it only actually eats the information authorized by a court order”. This article, in two parts, provides an overview of the FBI's Carnivore electronic surveillance system.
