Importing certificates onto a device

To permit a BlackBerry® device to use certificates, you or a BlackBerry device user must import the certificates into the key store database in application storage. To import certificates, you or the user can use one or more of the following methods:

  • Download certificates from the user's computer using the certificate synchronization tool in BlackBerry® Desktop Software
  • Enroll certificates over the wireless network
  • Copy certificates from a media card or smart card
  • Import certificates from an email attachment

To enroll certificates over the wireless network or copy them from a media card or smart card, you must use a device that is running BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 or later.

After you or the user imports the certificates, the device adds the certificates to the certificate list on the device.

For more information about how to import certificates, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administration Guide and the user guide for the device.
