Federal attorneys meet over Jill Kelley's leak allegations

Nov 28, 2012 (Tampa Tribune - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Attorneys with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida are meeting with the Department of Justice Inspector General's Office this morning to determine who should respond to allegations that information about Jill Kelley was leaked to the media by investigators, according to Robert E. O'Neill, U.S. Attorney for the district.

In a letter sent via email to W. Stephen Muldrow, an assistant U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Florida, Kelley's attorney complained about his client's name being leaked to the media as the woman who received "potentially threatening" emails from a woman who had an affair with CIA Director David Petraeus, a friend of Kelley's.

"The leaks most certainly had to come, at least in part, from government sources," Kelley's attorney, Abbe D. Lowell wrote in his email, which he shared with the media Tuesday evening.

O'Neill told The Tampa Tribune that while Lowell's allegation about leaks is "very general," attorneys from his office are meeting with the Inspector General's office to figure out the best way to respond to Lowell.

"He does not say our office leaked it," O'Neill said. "If the leaks did not occur in our office, we have no jurisdiction. If it occurred in Washington, D.C., (the investigation) has to go up there." O'Neill said that if Lowell is alleging that someone in the Middle District of Florida leaked the information, which the Lowell states violates the Privacy Act among other laws, his office would "definitely investigate" the matter.

Lowell could not immediately be reached for comment.

The emails to Kelley from Paula Broadwell kicked off an investigation that led to Petraeus' resignation as CIA director. Petraeus was hugely popular in Tampa when he was commander of U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base.

The probe also has put a chill on the future of Marine Gen. John Allen, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, whose nomination to head U.S. forces in Europe was put on hold after investigators found a huge cache of emails between Kelley and Allen.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
