A special law has been enacted requiring the US Justice Department to report to Congress on use of the surveillance program known as Carnivore. Carnivore, which is supposed to sift large quantities of email looking for specific communications, generated a storm of concern when its existence became known in 2000. The new reporting provision requires reports for the years 2002 and 2003 on a wide range of details, including the number of times Carnivore is used, both to collect transactional data and to intercept the content of communications, and the number of persons whose communications are intercepted. The reporting requirement became law in Section 305 of the 21st Century Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act, Pub. L. No. 107-273, signed by the President on Nov. 2, 2002. The report for 2002 should be issued sometime in the Spring of 2003.
