Govt asks telcos to install local server for security audit

Order also includes a complete audit trail to be maintained for six 
months of the network operated in India

New Delhi, Mar 22 (PTI) Government has told all telecom service 
operators, including those offering international calls, to install a 
remote access server within the country for security audit, Parliament 
was informed today.

The order is based on recommendations of a committee formed by the 
Department of Telecom (DoT) for monitoring of on-line mirror image and 
audit trail of Remote Access (RA) logs, Minister of State for 
Communications and IT Milind Deora said in a written reply to the Rajya 
Sabha.

"...A direction has been issued vide letter dated January 31, 2013 to 
all the telecom service providers including ILD service providers to 
install a local RA storage server in the country and store all RA 
command logs in the said server for the purpose of audit by security 
agencies," he added.

DoT's order for lawful interception and monitoring of all calls 
including those provided by International Long Distance (ILD) operators 
also includes a complete audit trail to be maintained for six months of 
the network operated in India.

After six months, the remote access logs should be stored in external 
storage memories for an additional period of one year.

The government has been insisting that telecom operators provide access 
to all communication send through their network, mainly for the national 
security reason.
