Can code signing keys be used on more than one developer (different PC)?

Hi,

 

I applied for a set of code signing keys a long time ago.

I installed them on the JDE on my computer... and I was able to migrate them to my new computer still on the JDE and then on the eJDE later on.  I had some issues migrating those keys, but everything works fine now, I'm able to sign my application.

 

Now, I have a co-worker who wants do develop an application using Widgets and he needs the code signing keys as well.  Can I just send my keys to him?  Or do he needs to apply for his own set of keys?

 

In other words, are the code signing keys used to identify a company or a developer?

 

Thanks!

JSanders

He will need his own set of keys. As I recall, they are only good on one PC at a time.

How does it work?

 

I mean, I was able to transfer them from my old PC to my new PC without even contacting RIM.

Both the JDE and eJDE on my new PC are using the same code signing keys I had on my old PC.

 

Is it that it won't work on another PC (for another developer)? Or is it that it's not allowed?

 

Thanks!

Each developer should have their own set of BlackBerry Code Signing keys.  Sharing keys is against the license agreement.
