Lawful Interception is one of the main provisions needed for the security agencies to monitor a suspect or deal with criminal activities. The implementation of this was easy in the traditional telephone networks, because of its centralized administration. However this has become a tedious job with the emergence of VoIP technologies where voice traff~c is carried over IP. In this paper, we discuss the challenges and propose a monitoring architecture for Lawful Interception on VoIP networks based
