OpenLI is being written by the WAND Network Research Group at the University of Waikato. The primary aim is to meet the requirements of New Zealand's TICSA legislation. The work is being funded by a group of NZ services providers who came together in response to an email by Dave Mill to the NZNOG mail list.
The software is built on top of the libtrace packet processing library and will eventually be released under the GPLv2 license. The software implementation will take packet capture directly from the network and package it suitable for transmission to a law enforcement agency. It will implement the ETSI standards for interception of IP delivery and Multimedia Services. Currently the sponsor service providers are helping define the network environments supported and will have access to the software before public release.
