RIM Blackberry to Support PGP Email Security
Posted on 11-Oct-2005 09:59. | Tags Filed under: News.



Research In Motion (RIM) and PGP Corporation are working together to allow BlackBerry users to send and receive PGP-secured email. The new PGP Support Package developed for BlackBerry is expected to be available later in 2005.

The solution enables enterprises to extend PGP email security to individuals who use both laptop/desktop computers and BlackBerry wireless devices. It provides customers with sender-to-recipient email security, and thereby complements the industry-leading wireless transmission security and device protection security inherent in the BlackBerry architecture. Licenses will be available exclusively from PGP Corporation and its authorized resellers.

The PGP Support Package for BlackBerry is designed to work in conjunction with the PGP Universal solution. PGP support is fully integrated in the BlackBerry user interface and provides email encryption, decryption, digital signature, and verification services for email sent from and received on BlackBerry devices.

Users will be able to authenticate themselves with their private key passphrase before decrypting or signing email on their BlackBerry device. Outgoing messages are automatically protected according to the centralized policy specified by the PGP Universal administrator. PGP Universal utilizes patented PGP Additional Decryption Key (ADK) capabilities, automated key management and recovery, and automated enrollment and centralized policy management.
