Come Up With a Solution Already: Indian Government Still Eager to Decode

By James Falconer on 18 Jun 2008 11:30 am EDT

India Is Watching You?In the ongoing saga that never seems to end, with imaginary deadlines and harsh words flying from both sides of the table... It seems the Indian Government now has an alternate proposal to meet their needs.

The Government wants to raise the minimum level of encryption from 40 to 265 bits. Why is this important? Well, it turns out the Indian Government already has the ability to decode messages at 40 bit and is working up to 256 bit encryption levels.

I think there's very little question that the Indian Government WILL start decoding messages if they get encryption levels raised.

RIM has said they will come up with a solution by the end of this month...

I've heard this all before... Anyone think this will come to a conclusion before 2009?

Come Up With a Solution Already: Indian Government Still Eager to Decode



I'm not sure either. I could have sworn the original article mentioned that, but now that I go back I see it is gone. They goofed, I goofed...

Thanks for the heads up :)

If they want to hack it, let them try. If they want a back door, then they need to go away. RIM I would have already pulled all resources from this country weeks ago. Fracking stick to your guns you big pussies.
