Lawful Interception (LI); Interface for warrant information
|Publication Date:||1 July 2021|
The present document defines an electronic interface between two systems for the exchange of information relating to the establishment and management of lawful required action, typically Lawful Interception. Typically this interface would be used between: on one side, a Communications Service Provider; and, on the other side, a Government or Law Enforcement Agency who is entitled to request a lawful action. The present document is a specific and detailed example of one particular Warrantry interface for eWarrants [i.1].
The ETSI reference model for LI (ETSI TS 102 232-1 [i.11]) defines three interfaces between law enforcement and CSPs, called HI-1, HI-2 and HI-3. The protocol defined in the present document is designed to provide a large part of the functionality for HI-1. It is not designed to be used for HI-2 (delivery of intercept related information) or HI-3 (delivery of communications content). The protocol designed in the present document may also be used for interfaces which require structured exchange of information relating to the establishment and management of Lawful Interception. The general view is that the HI-1 concept can also be used for other legal actions than LI. For that reason the present document could, besides LI, also be applied for retained data requests, seized data requests, data preservation orders and other similar legal requests.
