BlackBerry maker Research in Motion agrees to hand over its encryption keys to India


In an effort to avoid demise, RIM is now complying with the Indian government’s spying demands with added vigor. While it previously argued that its Blackberry services were not designed to permit even lawful interception, they have now proven that this is not the case, and that the implementation is simple.

On top of this, RIM has built interception facilities while denying their existence for over a year.

The takeaway here is that  even Blackberry Enterprise Server is not secure, never was, and both businesses and end users alike should be aware that their devices are now compromised, that RIM is not honest with anyone about its network security, and has intentionally compromised it in a desperate bid to remain profitable.
