    Networkworld.com reported that the UN’s telecommunications standards organization has approved a standard for deep packet inspection (DPI.) According to the article, the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) is concerned about the privacy issues this may cause. Their main concern is that the standard holds very little in reserve when it comes to privacy invasion. “There is a general lack of attention to design considerations we think are important to Internet users, namely privacy and security. Obviously DPI has the potential to be an extremely invasive technology,” said Alissa Cooper, CDT chief computer scientist.
