BlackBerry Gradually Getting More Spy-Friendly in India
Indian officials are reporting a bit of progress today toward their requirement that Research in Motion and the nation’s telecoms make BlackBerry communications accessible to security agencies. Home Secretary G.K. Pillai told Reuters that authorities can now get printouts of BlackBerry Messenger conversations within four or five hours of making the request to RIM. They are hoping to have real-time access by the end of the year, he said. The means to monitor BlackBerry’s encrypted corporate email system remains elusive, however.
