WiFi Régulation 

THE PUBLIC WiFi IN FRANCE

 

Since the early 2000s, Wi-Fi terminals to access the internet via wireless networks have multiplied in French public places. Users with mobile devices compatible WiFi (laptops, mobile phones, personal assistants) have the possibility to connect to the Web or professional applications (extranet, …) during their trips or their stays at the hotel for example.

 

However, the rise of WiFi has raised a new problem in the fight against offenses related to new technologies. If it is possible to be clearly identified when using means of traditional communications (fixed and mobile telephony, internet access at home),  WiFi terminals offer a means of communication enabling to work anonymously and therefore with impunity.

 

Among the offenses related to the use of the internet, there are:

 

Fraud and cyber delinquency :

* Breach of privacy,

* Online Scam,

* Hacking private networks

 

Cybercrime:

* child pornography,

* Organized Crimes,

* Terrorism …

 

In response to these growing threats, the French government has put in place a legislative framework in accordance with European Directives to limit the anonymity of public WiFi users, in order to ensure the safety of citizens while respecting individual freedoms.

The purpose of this section is to provide essential clarification on the responsibilities and risks inherent in providing a WiFi service, based on the current regulation.

 

 

Organizations in charge of public WiFi regulation in France :

 

ARCEP The Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Posts has been created in 1996 to regulate competition in the telecommunications sector. This authority also controls

compliance with emission standards.

 

CNCIS The National Commission for the Control of Security Interceptions is an administrative authority responsible for ensuring compliance with the provisions relating to correspondences issued via electronic communications.

 

CNIL The National Commission for Informatics and Freedoms was established by law n ° 78-17 of January 6, 1978. This independent authority sets the rules for computers, files and freedoms.

 

HADOPI is an institution exclusively dedicated to the dissemination of works and the protection of rights on the internet. It creates an original precedent for changing the debates and problems encountered by copyright on the internet.

 

THE JUDICIAL AUTHORITY * ensures the respect of the regulation of the Public WiFi. It is based on the investigations of the police and gendarmerie national court in the context of classic judicial requisition. An administrative requisition procedure specially created for the fight against terrorism allows the services concerned, such as the Direction of Territorial Surveillance (DST), to act more quickly.

* Ministry of the Interior

 

What is an Internet Service Provider (ISP)?

 

Article L32 of the Posts and Communications’ code considers as an access provider

Internet :

– Providers of access to electronic communications networks accessible via a WIFI hotspot,

– Individuals whose activity specifically relates to the offer of a paid service from online connection such as “cybercafés” managers,

– People offering an internet connection to their customers (or to visitors, including hotels / restaurants, airports or public transport) in a public setting,

 

TO OPEN A PUBLIC WiFi ACCESS IS BECOMING SUPPLIER OF INTERNET ACCESS.

 

Practical case

 

A carrier wishes to offer an internet access to its passengers.

Two possibilities are open to him :

 

– He decides to use an Internet Service Provider :

That is to say to a declared professional to ARCEP, in order to entrust it with its public access service.

Consequence: the carrier is not considered as a communication operator. He is not subject to regulation. Its Internet Service Provider take in charge the proper fulfillment of the legal obligations on its behalf.

 

– He decides to manage his access service himself :

He buys WiFi hardware and then uses a telephone operator to deploy and ensure the proper functioning of the equipment.

Consequence: The carrier is considered as an Internet Service Provider. He has the obligation

to declare his activity to ARCEP. He shall pay the annual administrative fee according to its turnover (in K €) and the respect of all legal obligations inherent to its operator status.

In particular, it cannot be used in the context of radio boxes neither in transmission, nor in

reception. Any fraudulent use of the SIM card, or contrary to these conditions, engages the

personal responsibility of the Subscriber »

Obligations of a WiFi operator

 

Providing WiFi access to the public must be done in accordance with the regulatory framework in France.

 

Collection and storage of technical data for one year.

 

The law of January 2006¹ introduces into the Posts and Telecommunications² code provisions which require electronic communications operators to keep for a period of 1 year certain data of a technical nature concerning their users.

In fact, the new obligations must allow the authorities to have sufficient case of seeking evidence in the context of the prevention of terrorism acts.

 

This obligation obviously concerns WiFi³ operators.

 

Categories of information whose retention is mandatory :

  • Information to identify the user
  • Data relating to the communication terminal equipment used
  • The technical characteristics as well as the date, time, duration, and location of each

communication

  • Data relating to the additional services requested or used and their providers
  • Data to identify the recipient (s) of the communication

 

 

Operators have no obligation to create nominative files of users. Organizations providing a WiFi connection may choose to offer this service without proceeding to the identification of people. They are then only required to hold the technical data created by the use of their services.

 

Operators should only keep the technical data.

They should not keep information on the content of communications: the text of a

SMS, the subject and content of an email, etc.

 

The National Commission for the Control of Interceptions of Security (CNCIS) can

at any time carry out checks on the operations of the technical communications.

Failure to comply with this law is penalized: up to 5 years imprisonment and 300,000 euros fine.

 

REGULATIONS

¹ Act No. 2006-64 of 23 January 2006 on the fight against terrorism and various provisions relating to security and border controls.

“In order to prevent acts of terrorism, police officers and “gendarmerie nationale” authorities may require operators to communicate the data stored and processed by these latter. “

 

² Articles L34-1 and L34-1-1 of the Post and Electronic Communications Code.

“Persons who, in respect of a main professional activity or accessory, offer to the public

a connection enabling online communication via network access, including included free of charge, are subject to compliance with the provisions applicable to operators of

electronic communications. “

 

³ Opinion 2005-0918 of 13 October 2005 on the draft law on the fight against terrorism.

 

Wave emission standards

 

In order to prevent any risk of WiFi waves to public health, the Authority of Regulation of Electronic Communications and Posts (ARCEP) has set emission conditions electromagnetic waves emitted by WiFi terminals. These conditions were taken over by the decree n ° 2002-775 of May 3rd, 2002 which legislated on the frequency and the power of the waves emitted by the WiFi terminals.

 

Frequency :

 

The lower the frequency of a wave, the more likely it is to penetrate the material and therefore

to have an impact on the exposed individuals. ARCEP has set the level of electromagnetic fields produced by WiFi networks at 2540 Mhz public.

For comparison, FM radio and mobile telephony (GSM) both use lower frequencie, and therefore more harmful with respectively frequencies between 87.5 and 108 Mhz on the one hand and between 900 and 1900 Mhz on the other hand.

 

The power :

 

ARCEP has fixed the power of waves emitted from a WiFi terminal to a maximum limit of 0.1

Watt, a power 20 times lower than that of mobile phones (2 Watts).

The distance between the transmitter and the individual greatly reduces the power of the waves. Indeed, a distance of 20 centimeters from the WiFi terminal, the wave energy is already halved and at beyond 50 centimeters it is even divided by ten.

 

EXPERT OPINION

 

The Health and Radiofrequency Foundation at a scientific meeting organized in October 2007,

concluded that “studies carried out to date have not identified any impact of radio frequencies on health below legal power limits. “

The French Agency for Sanitary Safety of the Environment and Labor (AFSSET), which acts as

reference in health advice on the impact of radio frequencies made the same opinion on WiFi.

In its report on Mobile Telephony dated April 2005, ARSSET concludes as follows :

“Exposure to WiFi is always in the far field (at least 50 cm) and the transmit power is low. With regard to WiFi technology, the very low powers engaged, as well as the high frequencies imply a much lower exposure compared to that of the telephony classic mobile. “

 

Non-compliance with WiFi emission standards is penalized: up to 6 months imprisonment and 190 000 € fine.

 

Respect for the individual freedoms of users

 

Personal data must be collected fairly and must be intended for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes.

 

The collection of personal data must first have the consent of the person concerned and these must be freely searchable and modifiable.

Only the collection and processing of the technical data defined in Article L.34-1 of the Code of Posts and electronic communications (see page 6) are exceptions to the rule of prior agreement.

Apart from these technical data, the Data Protection Act applies to the collection and processing of all personal data.

 

Failure to comply with the law “informatique & liberty“ is sanctioned criminally: up to 5 years imprisonment and 300 000 € fine.

 

 

 

REGULATIONS

 

Law of January 6th, 1978 Computers and Freedoms:

“Computing must not interfere with human identity, human rights, private life, or to individual or public liberties. “

 

SPECIFIC REGULATIONS FOR VEHICLES

 

ECE R10 standard

 

Embedded equipment must meet electromagnetic compatibility standards. The directive

95/54 EC introduces the following concepts :

  • functions related to the “direct control” of the vehicle, it implies by that, all functions able to act: by degradation or change in the motorization, the change speed, braking, suspension, etc., which may affect the position of the driver, for example: the seat with memory, the positioning of the steering wheel, susceptible to affect the driver’s visibility such as windshield wipers.
  • functions related to the driver, his passengers and other road users: example : airbag
  • functions likely to create confusion for the driver or other users of the road: optical disturbances (eg flashing lights, brake lights, false information warning lamps), significant acoustic disturbances (eg alarm, buzzer)
  • functions related to the blocking data transmission.
  • special functions such as odometer, tachograph
