BERLIN — German officials on Friday defendeda proposal to use “Trojan horse” software to secretly monitorpotential terror suspects' hard drives, amid fierce debate over whether themeasures violate civil liberties.
Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble wants toinclude the measure in a broader security law being considered by conservativeChancellor Angela Merkel's coalition government.
Carried in e-mails that appear to come from othergovernment offices, the software would allow authorities to investigatesuspects' Internet use and the data stored on their hard drives without theirknowledge.

Schaeuble's office has not yet released a copy ofthe bill, but elements of it that were leaked to German media include allowinginvestigators to send e-mail messages that appear to be from the FinanceMinistry or the Youth Services Office, but which actually carry the Trojanhorse software.
