Help Nokia India installs server for e-mail, messenger service interception
Advertisement
#1
Nokia India, has announced the installation of a server in the country to enable security agencies lawfully intercept its email and messenger services. The step from Nokia will pressurise the BlackBerry makers, Research-in-Motion, to install its server in India.

The company, however, assured its customers that their privacy would be protected, even while fulfilling public responsibility and legal obligations. Nokia Messaging is a push mail service which merely collates information available through the internet and directs it to the respective mobile devices.

Nokia India VP and MD D Shivakumar called on Home Secretary G K Pillai and handed over the letter, saying “The company has conformed with all requirements suggested by the law enforcement agencies to Install the Interception tool. This toll will also facilitate location of the mobile device generating emails.”

Installing a server to intercept data sent and received through smartphones was a key demand of security agencies, which feared that this service could be used terror elements. “We made a commitment to install host servers in India by end of the year. It gives me immense pleasure to inform you that it has been installed. We have completed the software installation and internal testing and the messaging service is now live on our India based servers,” Shivakumar said in the letter.
