Nokia installs server to intercept email, messages in India, shame on RIM

Nokia did what BlackBerry has been avoiding lately. The Finnish handset maker Nokia installed a server in India to enable security agencies lawfully intercept its email and messenger services in India. A great move by Nokia to show that it really cares for the security issues and concerns of legal agencies just like a responsible corporate citizen was greatly welcomed by the Home Secretary.


But will RIM now be in a soup, as the Canadian maker of BlackBerry devices has been asked time and again to install a server in the country and has been given new deadlines for the same (RIM’s latest deadline being January 2011 to install a server here).


Meanwhile Nokia, abiding by the requirements of law enforcement agencies, acted responsibly and assured that customers’ privacy will always be protected while it continues to fulfill its public and legal obligations.


Nokia has completed the software installation and internal testing and said that its messaging service is now live on its India based servers. The server installed by Nokia now provides a real time intercept of content including its push mail service aggregating current email accounts of its subscribers on their handsets and Nokia’s messenger services.


It also facilitates locating the mobile devices that generated such emails or messages. According to Nokia, the server includes authentication server, email enterprise server and configuration database servers.
