Blackberry Services in danger

24 Mar

Heres another example of the Government regulator doing what its NOT supposed to do (be a pain in the ass). Apparently they have warned Research In Motion (RIM) the company that provides the Blackberry service (and the operators) to “Put a Security system in place“.

Looks like their main bone of contention is that the service’s mail servers are in Canada. So why do they care where the mail server is? Do they want to spy on us?

So if thats the case, I should stop using Google Mail as well?

    Don’t worry anna.. they won’t implement it! Many govt babus also use blackberry.. If I am not wrong Blr cops too use blackberry devices for printing fines for motorists!

    Keep in mind, any data that passes between BlackBerry devices and mail servers are encrypted, at least 3DES but mostly AES (256)… So unless the boys at RIM can decipher AES the way we read the daily paper, this is all moot.

    Let’s also keep in mind that once you send an email from the blackberry and it’s securely transmitted to your outgoing mail servers (or RIM’s mail servers), it’s just a regular email and guess what? Regular email is wide open for anyone who wants to read it.d

    @Balu: Looks like the whole thing started when Tata Indicom applied for a license to run the service…
    @Jammin: That was my understanding.. so I dont understand what these guys are cribbing about…

    Omg, like you said, truly new levels of inanity even for the babus. Btw, as you may know, not all blackbeerry servers are in Canada. If your company has a Blackberry Internet Server, then it is within the company’s firewall (i.e.) in whichever country.
