Blackberry Will Not Allow India to Access its Encrypted Data

The Blackberry dispute of not accessing its encrypted messages and mails of its users to government intelligence authorities is still unsolved; as recently (on Thursday) it has been reported that Blackberry has denied letting its encrypted data to access to government intelligence agencies.

As per report of sources, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIM) denied the governments order saying that to access encrypted data was technically not feasible. The report further said that RIM slammed down the report from Delhi- a report which said that Blackberry had agreed to let its encrypted data access to the government intelligence agencies, and said the report was misleading and inaccurate.

The RIM further said that they were co-operating the government and they were not violating the norms of Indian constituency as they were proving the same degree of consumer service as other telecom agencies.

Blackberry, the Canadian wireless giant has informed that in the past that it doesn’t have a ‘master key’ to get a third party access to encrypted corporate data under any circumstances.

Reportedly, RIM has informed that the installation of servers in the country would not serve the purpose as all data remained encrypted at all times through all points of transfer between the BlackBerry enterprise server and client smart phones.

However, they further said that they were working with the Indian authorities for allowing them to access its consumer service, including the Blackberry message service.
