Maximum Smart Card User Authenticator Certificate Status Check Period IT policy rule


This rule specifies the maximum length of time (in minutes) that can elapse between status checks of the user authentication certificates that a BlackBerry® device uses with smart cards. During each period, the BlackBerry device requests the status of the certificate. If the certificate is revoked, the BlackBerry device locks and the user is unable to unlock it unless the certificate status changes from On Hold to Good. The permitted range between status checks is 240 to 40320 minutes.

Default value

The default value is -1, which specifies no time limit.


A BlackBerry device uses this rule only if you configure the Password Required, Force Smart Card User Authentication, and Force Smart Card Two Factor Challenge Response IT policy rules to Yes.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.5
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP5
