Wi-Fi EAP-FAST Provisioning method configuration setting

Description

This setting specifies the type of provisioning method that a BlackBerry® device can use when it authenticates to a Wi-Fi® network using EAP-FAST authentication with PAC.

Default value

The default value is Anonymous. The server provisions the BlackBerry device with a PAC when the BlackBerry device connects for the first time. The server uses the user name and password to authenticate the user account. When you choose this option, server authentication does not occur.

Usage

You can configure one of the following options to change the type of provisioning methods that a BlackBerry device can use:
  • If you want the server to authenticate a BlackBerry device using the user name and password of the user account and a root certificate when the BlackBerry device connects for the first time, you can select the Authenticated option. The BlackBerry device does not connect to the server if the server does not present a root certificate to the BlackBerry device.
  • If you want the server to authenticate a BlackBerry device using the user name and password of the user account, and you want the settings on the server to determine if server authentication must occur, you can select the Both option. If the server presents a root certificate, the BlackBerry device verifies the server using the selected root certificate. If the server does not present a root certificate, the BlackBerry device does not perform server authentication.

Minimum requirements

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