  • RIM's guidelines won't let India spy on BlackBerry email



    Research In Motion confirmed on Thursday that it will not give the Indian government access to transferred email data sent to and from BlackBerry smartphones in its country.

    “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.”
    Last year India requested access to email and other services as part of larger efforts to monitor security threats within the country. RIM caved a bit and gave the Indian government access to its BlackBerry Messenger service earlier this month, but complex email encryption will not allow RIM to provide similar access to its email services. Is RIM doing the right thing here? Does India have a strong enough case to request the encrypted data?
