India is seeking to find an “appropriate” means to monitor messages and corporate emails sent through Blackberry smart phones, a top government official has said. India and countries such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have sought access to monitor the services as they fear heavy encryption makes BlackBerry convenient for terrorists to use without being monitored, stated AFP.
“There are certain categories (monitoring of communication) where things are possible, there are certain categories where the same kind of interception is not possible,” Telecommunications Secretary R. Chandrashekhar said late Friday. India’s government is testing various ways to intercept BlackBerry communications. It earlier said BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) had offered solutions to access the BlackBerry messenger, Internet, voice calls and short messaging services.
