Certification Authority Profile Required IT policy rule

Description

This rule specifies whether the certificate enrollment process is required for a BlackBerry® device.

The previous name of this rule was Certificate Authority Profile Required.

Default value

The default value is True. The BlackBerry device enrolls the certificate without any user interaction after the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server pushes the IT policy to the BlackBerry device. The user cannot delete the certificate.

Usage

If you change this rule to False, the certification authority profile is optional, and the BlackBerry device starts the certificate enrollment process automatically after the BlackBerry Enterprise Server pushes the IT policy to the BlackBerry device.

The user can cancel the enrollment process when the BlackBerry device requests the user's credentials. If the user cancels the enrollment process, the BlackBerry device does not add the certificate to the key store.

The certification authority might still issue the certificate to the BlackBerry device, and the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service might still retrieve the certificate, but the BlackBerry device does not store the certificate in the key store.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 5.0
  • BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0
