RIM would be happy to help companies hand encryption keys to national governments, according to CEO Jim Balsillie who reckons that's the ideal solution to the lawful-intercept problem. Governments should ask companies for their encryption keys, and keep a central register to enable legal interception of communications, according …
Good for RIM
It is the only sane solution, given their current way of encrypting traffic is the only sane reliable way to do encryption, and no backdoor of any kind is ever going to work properly.
If a country wants access to their citizens data, then they can take it up with their citizens directly.
After all if RIM did do something stupid, people would just start using their own encryption on top of the blackberry because they can no longer trust the system itself, and then the various governments loose all access entirely.
