The Indian government announced last weeks that social networking websites must comply with the demand of the security agencies for a real-time monitoring of their user information in order to make sure that national security isn’t compromised.
While monitoring a raging controversy over BlackBerry posing security concerns, Indian security agencies have also asked the country’s Telecom Ministry to allow real-time monitoring of different social networking services, including Skype, Facebook, Twitter, and Google.
Sachin Pilot, Ministry of State for Telecom and IT, explained that they can’t afford to take chances with national security. The statement was made on the sidelines of an international forum hold by the U.S.-based IT giant AMD – the second largest chip manufacture in the world.
Mr. Pilot said that there was a whole list of organizations that had been asked to provide access and monitoring solution, because law enforcement agencies wanted data for national security. The discussion has been on for several months now and the authorities are expecting to find a solution soon, because the matter is of national priority.
The Indian government is trying to not leave any loop holes that may be detrimental to national security. Meanwhile, Ravi Swaminathan, Managing Director for AMD (India), believes that conferences like that would create a platform for the Internet industry to cooperate and address relevant societal issues, because technology had given rise to the awareness and aspirations of many while regulating various ethical issues. AMD and an industry chamber even arranged the international forum “Ethics, Governance and Technology”, where the company announced that the government would introduce an IT policy addressing such problems as financial frauds and piracy.
Previously, the Canadian company Research in Motion, providing BlackBerry services, was asked by the government to hand over an interception solution for its BlackBerry Internet Services, Messenger and Enterprise Servers regarding security concerns. The matter was that the government suspected that terrorists might use BlackBerry services because the information there was highly encrypted and security agencies were not able to monitor them. At the same time, Skype provides online telephony services, and Google offers a host of services like e-mail and search, which poses the same threat.

|Hey maybe we could start a call centre somewhere else other than India and ring India every time their social networking accounts are looked into by the government. Ay time day or night! And when they complain because they are eating dinner, or it is 10 o'clock at night, we can abuse the living crap out of them! And dont forget to use a faked Inidan accent back at them, as well as call yourself Maneesha or Apu! Sounds fair to me.|
|maybe they follow the US model, where corporations are more important than the people, and the people are only fodder and used for military and guinea pigs to defend the corporations right to exist.|

|anhighpriest - take your pompous comments somewhere else, tell your own country to sort their own problems out first, where ever the hell your from|
kazzgirl - the accent is faked because most white folk think it's justified to call the call center operators "paki" and other racist stuff as soon as they figure out it's a brown guy/girl the other end of the phone, they're just doing their job. You got a problem, sue the company they work for. If you took your head out of your backside you'd know that not all Indian guys are called "Apu" and not all Indian gals are called "Maneesha", but it's ok, continue to be ignorant if it makes you feel better/superior. Maybe next time you order a curry, the person making the food will hopefully read your comments and put rat poison in your food. Sounds fair to me, no one's gonna miss you Mickey.

|@doomed I'm sick of getting unsolicited calls from Indian call centers offering to fix my pc for a fee even though there's nothing wrong with it, it's just another scam. I'm not blaming you but stop defending them. How can I sue the company if I don't know who they are, they're ringing me. Luckily I only eat curry I cook myself so keep the rat poison for the rats.|
