Request of Various Countries to Access BlackBerry Data

India is likely to suspend the BlackBerry service if unresolved security issues with RIM. Disputes between companies of Canada (RIM) and several countries in different world seems far from finished. India's latest ultimatum to the BlackBerry maker, Research In Motion (RIM), came a day after the company was willing to give the user code so that the government of Saudi Arabia can monitor the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). That was done so that the Saudis did not stop the BlackBerry services. BlackBerry email and messaging services are the target for the government in various countries are concerned with national security.

India, like many other countries in the Middle East and North Africa, want access to the BlackBerry communications system that allegedly linked militant activity, including the 2008 Mumbai attacks which killed 166 people. Indian Ministry of Home Affairs will hold a press conference to explain the time limit for RIM to be willing to provide access to the details of encryption in the telecommunications system.  There are some who can talk about the deadline and a proposal to take stern measures against the Black-Berry service during the meeting," said Indian government official who refused to be quoted by name because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Another senior Indian government officials said that mobile phone operators may be asked to stop the Enterprise Email and Messenger services owned by RIM in a while, as a last alternative if RIM is not willing to grant access to their data. "If they do not provide solutions, we will ask cellular operators to stop certain services. Services that can be activated again when they (RIM) gives us a solution," said the source. Responsibility to meet the security requirements of India that depends on the cellular phone operators in India than RIM.

BlackBerry's success over the last few years related to network security, making executives can communicate securely. But this is precisely the problem for security authorities in various countries. The German government has banned politicians and public servants use the BlackBerry. While the EU Commission this month refused to support the BlackBerry to more than Apple's iPhone and HTC smartphones. RIM, unlike its competitors, Nokia and Apple, to operate their own network through the service are protected in Canada and some countries such as England
