Configuring PSK encryption
The IEEE® 802.1X™ standard specifies PSK encryption as an access control method for enterprise Wi-Fi® networks. You can use PSK encryption in small office and home environments where it is not feasible to configure server-based authentication.
To configure PSK encryption, you must distribute a passphrase to Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry® devices that matches the key or passphrase for the wireless access points. You must distribute the passphrase using the Wi-Fi profiles that you assign to user accounts. The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Express sends the passphrase when users activate the BlackBerry devices.
For more information about how the BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution supports PSK encryption, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Security Technical Overview.
- In the BlackBerry Administration Service, on the BlackBerry solution management menu, expand Policy > Wi-Fi configuration.
- Click Manage Wi-Fi profiles.
- Click the name of the Wi-Fi® profile that you want to change.
- Click Edit profile.
- On the Wi-Fi profile settings tab, in the Wi-Fi Preshared Key field, type the passphrase.
