Wi-Fi Minimal EAP-TLS Certificate Encryption Key Security Level configuration setting

Description

This setting specifies the minimum security level for a private key that an EAP authentication method (for example, EAP-TLS) uses with a client certificate.

Default value

The default value is Low security. A BlackBerry® device prompts a user only once for the key store password so that the BlackBerry device can retrieve the private key and encrypt messages. The BlackBerry device stores the unencrypted private key with the Wi-Fi® profile.

Usage

If you configure this setting to Medium security, a BlackBerry device prompts a user only once for the key store password so that the BlackBerry device can retrieve the private key and encrypt messages. After the BlackBerry device retrieves the private key, the BlackBerry device retrieves the private key again only after the user resets the BlackBerry device. The BlackBerry device caches the private key in memory but does not store it with the Wi-Fi profile.

If you configure this setting to High security, a BlackBerry device always prompts a user for the key store password when it accesses the private key and encrypts messages. The BlackBerry device does not store the unencrypted private key with the Wi-Fi profile.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.0.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 SP1
