In recent years, the number of online crimes (e.g., the various emerging scams and criminal schemes) has increased. Online crime suspects utilize the anonymous nature of web to disguise their identity through various methods and evade detection and surveillance from law enforcement agencies. This study proposes an effective lawful interception system, Real-time Crime Detection System (RCDS), which includes Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB), Internet Service Providers (ISP), and Network Interception Server (NIS) to establish a legally sanctioned lawful interception process which can collect and store evidence for criminal detection in real time. We provide a case study of MSN Messenger to describe the MSN Protocol (MSNP), information flow process, and lawful interception methodologies. The RCDS can provide criminal detection and surveillance services for MSN to obtain criminal communication records in turn reducing online criminal activities. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
