    Triple-DES

    Blackberry uses three iterations of the Data Encryption Standard (DES) algorithm with three 56-bit keys, in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode for an overall key length of 168 bits. The encryption procedure is the same as regular DES, but it is repeated three times. With Triple-DES, the data is encrypted with the first key, decrypted with the second key, and finally encrypted again with the first key.

    Advanced Encryption Standard

    AES was developed to replace DES. AES provides a better combination of security and performance than DES or Triple-DES. AES provides greater security against brute force attacks by offering a larger key size. Blackberry uses 256 bit keys in CBC mode to encrypt data that is sent between the Blackberry Enterprise Server and the handheld.

    According to another PinStack thread I started recently, BlackBerry Individual Solution (BIS) users also have advanced forms of encryption when Content Protection (Menu-->Options-->Security Options-->General Settings-->Content Protection) is enabled...

    Does that extend to these forms of encryption and if so, which one?

    The BIS accounts if I remember this correctly have this encryption which makes it really impossible to hack emails or other information. Being on a BES account multiples your security from next to impossible to not even a chance in you know where. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
