The Blackberry keys

Lots of news over the past few days on the back/forth between the Indian government and RIM. And apparently the latest is a retraction - last week RIM apparently had said it would make the crypto keys available.

Apparently, the reason is that RIM itself does not have the keys - therefore they cannot hand it over. The company says, "The BlackBerry security architecture for enterprise customers is purposefully designed to exclude the capability for Research in Motion (RIM) or any third party to read encrypted information under any circumstances"

If this is true, I wonder if any government has these keys...
