Create a VPN profile

The required profile settings vary for each device type and depend on the VPN connection type and authentication type that you select.
Some devices may be unable to store the xAuth password. For more information, visit support.blackberry.com/community to read 30353.
  • If devices use certificate-based authentication for work VPN connections, create a CA certificate profile and assign it to user accounts, user groups, or device groups. To send client certificates to devices, create a user credential, SCEP, or shared certificate profile to associate with the VPN profile.
  • For 
    iOS
    macOS
    Samsung Knox
    , and 
    BlackBerry 10
     devices that use a proxy server, create a proxy profile to associate with the VPN profile. 
    (The proxy server for 
    Windows 10
     devices is configured in the VPN profile.)
  • For 
    Samsung Knox
     devices, add the appropriate VPN client app to the app list and assign it to user accounts, user groups, or device groups. The supported VPN client apps are 
    Cisco AnyConnect
     and 
    Juniper
