Govt enables security agencies to intercept BlackBerry data using server in Mumbai
The government took a call in the matter more than 18 months ago. Now, it has deciphered the mechanics of enabling security agencies to police the one million-strong exclusive preserve of BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) users in India.
Consequently, BlackBerry smartphone owners - who were interception-secure all these days - will have to brace for an invasion of their privacy. Their messenger service can be lawfully tapped citing security concerns.
Indian security agencies confirmed to Mail Today on Friday that the process to access the BBM service, which operates with the highly protected 256-bit encrypted data, is underway and would be up and running soon.
