The IB, India’s Intelligence Bureau has squashed a proposal by RIM to that would decompress Blackberry information sent to non-Blackberry devices.
"RIM had offered this solution because, data on RIM network flows with the 256-bit advanced encryption standard, but India’s security agencies can intercept only 40-bit encryption.
