Is Access to the Handheld Key Store Allowed application control policy rule


This rule specifies whether an application can access the key store APIs on a BlackBerry® device.

Default value

The default value is Allowed.


If you configure the Minimal Signing Key Store Security Level and the Minimal Encryption Key Store Security Level IT policy rules to use the high security level, this rule does not apply. A BlackBerry device prompts the user for the key store password each time that an application tries to access the private key.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Application Suite version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0
