A while back I bloged about WIndows Mobile getting the US DoD DISA STIG certification. Now Windows Mobile and Blackberry have received the Australian Government's Defence Signals Directorate's (DSD's) Common Criteria certification.  You can read more in this article from ComputerWorld Australia.

Interestingly enough, this newspaper informs that the Indian Government is banning Blackberry service citing security reasons. Which is interesting because they are only banning services from one operator while the other ones apparently have no problem. UPDATE: Apparently the government in India has stated it will not ban Blackberry. Apprently, the issue was that the Balckberry system would not allow for the Indian government to eavesdrop on personal email.
