India Warns RIM, Nokia Over Security Concerns
Advertisement
#1
Research in Motion (RIM) and Nokia - both of which have e-mail services in the country, have been notified by the Indian Intelligence Bureau regarding safety concerns with respect to e-mails sent and received using their servers.

While the services would NOT be banned, the two companies have been asked to comply with the demands of the IB. Both Nokia and RIM are working closely with the government to bring an end to this issue.

The government is concerned about e-mails that are sent to and from India using encrypted servers located outside the country. The government is asking for access to these servers so that they can monitor the traffic going through them. This, according to them, is due to concerns regarding the use of BlackBerry and Nokia devices in acts of terrorism.


We wonder how it feels when the government is planning to eavesdrop on your personal and corporate e-mails. But then, is this an acceptable trade-off to prevent acts of terrorism? Leave us a comment and let us know your views on the same.
