RIM suggests other way to eavesdrop on BlackBerry users


NEW YORK: BlackBerry maker Research in Motion Ltd said it has no way of providing government officials with the text of encrypted corporate e-mail messages its devices serve up. But if the companies that employ BlackBerry phones want to hand over the encryption keys to their e-mail, it won’t object.

RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie said he could envision countries that want access to BlackBerry e-mail messages setting up a kind of national registry where companies doing business within their borders would have to provide government officials with the ability to peek at encrypted messages.
