Create a SCEP profile

The required profile settings depend on the SCEP service configuration in your organization's environment and vary depending on whether the certificate is used by a 
BlackBerry Dynamics

If you want to use a SCEP profile to distribute 
OpenTrust
 client certificates to devices, you must apply a hotfix to your 
OpenTrust
 software. For more information, contact your 
OpenTrust
 support representative and reference support case SUPPORT-798.
