Security considerations

All traffic between the BlackBerry® Administration API web services and the client applications uses an HTTPS connection. The BlackBerry Administration API shares the SSL certificate used by the BlackBerry Administration Service to provide a highly secure connection.

Your application must provide valid authentication credentials using HTTP basic authentication before any other operations are processed. If the valid credentials are not provided, all API requests are immediately denied to minimize the load on the system and prevent any unauthorized users from performing operations without providing valid credentials.
