There’s a cat and mouse game going on between Research in Motion (RIM) and the Indian government. In a recent turnout after seeing the reactions of the public, RIM has withdrawn their statement that they’ll be sharing the encryption key with the government.
The latest news is that they are not going to share it and the reason cited by them is that they don’t have any access to encryption keys used by the customers. It is clear that RIM is trying save their face and is in a soup on which side to support for – customers or the government.
RIM will be meeting the officials today and let’s see what happens. We’ll keep you updated on this.
