Hello Richard,

Without going into too much details can you explain why they "think" its Chinese or Israeli? Or what country they are talking about? Also why they think there is network surveillance equipment there at all?

What type of data re you looking for? Specific to the country or general sales of this horrible technology?

A good starting point which is accessible (in terms on not being overly technical) would be Privacy International's Big Brother Inc website. [1]

Also useful is the Spyfiles cache of brochures from surveillance companies which contains a lot of information gathered by someone who gained access to an ISS world ("Intelligence Support Systems" conference. [2]

Also useful for background information on these companies and the countries they sell to is BuggedPlanet. [3]

With regards network surveillance equipment being Israeli or Chinese, you can add to that list UK, French, German, American, Italian, to name a few countries.

I hope that helps.
