BlackBerryOS.com - RIM And India Finally Reached Compromise?
  • RIM And India Finally Reached Compromise?

    It looks as though bout between RIM and the government of India may be finally reaching an end. If you remember, this match up goes way back to 2008 when the Indian government demanded access to encrypted BBM traffic. Then in 2010, RIM pulled punches and made a few compromises that dodged a ban. Now, it looks like things are getting a little crazy as RIM is putting 5,000 BES Enterprise servers in the city of Mumbai. Should advocates of privacy be worried? RIM went as far as to say back in Jan 2011 that in no way can they allow encrypted access to the Indian gov:

    "No changes can be made to the security architecture for BlackBerry Enterprise Server customers since, contrary to any rumors, the security architecture is the same around the world and RIM truly has no ability to provide its customers’ encryption keys"
    and...

    "There is no possibility of us providing any kind of a solution," RIM VP Robert Crow said to reporters. "There is no solution. There are no keys to be handed."..."It’s not possible to do so because the keys of the service are in possession of the corporate enterprises."
    So were RIM's statements just a bunch of hot air? We don't know for certain yet, but if what is being reported is true, that a "team of officers" have already inspected the new installation and that "permission for direct monitoring" is "expected to be issued," then perhaps RIM will eventually have to hire a team of Indian spies to finally close out this epilogue.
