Law Enforcement & Cyber Defense

As the internet has become available to all, it has also become a place where crime can flourish. Criminals use the internet to organize illegal activities or to launch cyber attacks. Since a vast number of services and a huge part of infrastructure rely on the internet, it is necessary to guarantee that the internet is a place devoid of malicious activity. Because of this, laws governing surveillance of electronic communication are passed by legislative bodies, enforced by law enforcement agencies (LEA) and possibly further utilized by intelligence agencies. To be compliant with these directives and their implementation through ETSI, CALEA, SORM and other standards, appropriate lawful interception and data retention systems must be deployed.


The data processing performance of lawful interception and data retention systems is becoming a paramount factor with the increasing amount of data transferred over Ethernet links. Netcope provides programmable hardware accelerators that guarantee wire-speed traffic processing with zero packet loss on 100G, 40G and 10G Ethernet. In combination with ready-to-use firmware, these accelerators provide both per-packet and stateful filtering, which is a basic element of lawful interception and data retention systems. Together with support for multiple network technologies

(100G, 40G, 10G and 25G Ethernet), this protects future investments when moving to higher speeds. Specifically, Netcope Session Filter (NSF) implements smart preprocessing of network traffic based on keeping track of network flows directly in hardware. NSF surpasses competing solutions due to its ability to dynamically adjust the level of traffic details transferred to software. Smart cooperation between intelligent software and powerful hardware allows implementation of reliable interception systems for the highest-speed networks, which is not possible with conventional solutions.
