Company denies changing security architecture

Research in Motion has denied rumors that it has made special concessions in talks with India over access to encrypted information sent over BlackBerry networks. In a statement provided to the Wall Street Journal, the company claims it will not make changes to its security architecture for BlackBerry Enterprise Server customers.

"All our discussions with the Government of India have been and continue to be productive and fully consistent with the four core principles we follow in addressing lawful access matters around the world," the statement reads.

RIM claims that it will not establish special deals with specific countries to provide access to protected information, while there is already a system for complying with requests for lawful access. The company also suggests that it cannot provide customers' encryption keys, even if it yielded to government requests to spy on customers.

A time-frame for resolving the dispute remains unclear, although a spokesperson suggests the discussions have been productive.
