IANAL and I don't even play on the net, but...
We've been under the impression that is *all* data. So for us,
things like PPPoE Sessions, just putting a tap/span port upstream of
the aggregation router will not work as you would miss any traffic
going from USER A <-> USER B, if they where on the same aggregation
device. Since the Intercept has to be invisible to the parties
being tapped, you can't route their traffic back out and then in
either, since the tap would change the flow. In that regard, we've
been upgrading our older NPE's to newer ones in order to support
SII, All the while I keep having something a co-worker said stuck in
my head. "CALEA - Consultant And Lawyer Enrichment Act" :)
