RIM ready to monitor Blackberry content based on conditional support from DoT
TT Bureau |  |  20 May 2008

Research in Motion (RIM), the Canadian service provider is reportedly ready to monitor Blackberry content under a condition that DoT takes the responsibility for any leakage of user information from mobile.


To gather any data from Blackberry the security agencies need to be in possession of "Public Key" (code of customers’ handset) and "Private Key" (company''s code against that handset).


To access Blackberry data a password is required and can be accessed only through "Public Key" and "Private Key" together.


RIM has asked DoT to take responsibility of Private Keys and bear responsibility for loss of data of customers if any. RIM officials also argued that DoT should also take responsibility of leakage of important codes which are being exchanged on the handsets.
