Hi:
I need help in resolving the following question:
I have a company which uses Voip which has a server with all the company user’s registered names. That server is used to set up each call by giving each participant the IP address of the other party. The actual phone calls are peer to peer encrypted links ( which do not go through any of  my servers, and the keys do not come from the company but, instead it comes from a Diffie Helman exchange).
My company is required to comply with the Communications Assistance for  Law Enforcement  Act (CALEA) for all calls to and from USA phones.
A)      How can my company determine if a phone call is being made in the USA?
B)      Where would the CALEA have to put the hardware or software to eavesdrop on the calls?

The only way I can see is that you need some "Man in the middle" ...
for example a proxy server that is presented to both as the endpoint, on that endpoint you can log a conversation.
If you have a zrtp based connection this will not exactly work though. ( due to the missing end to end encryption)...
It might not even work in your case depending on the protocol around the DH exchange.
It might be sufficient to have the encrypted stream and a key to decode the data (if that is possible), then you just need a proxy that logs the raw stream (still a proxy in the middle) + a way to get the key.

This might be tough to undoable depending on the exact technology involved.
