get BlackBerry PIN in web page

I am just starting off planning a browser-based application specifically for the BlackBerry.  Can someone give me at least a place to start, specific docs to read, or any other advice on how to get the BB's PIN passed to my web app so that I can auto-authenticate the user?

 

Thanks.

Re: get BlackBerry PIN in web page

OK, I found that there is a configuration option through MDS that sends the Device ID and/or email address in the HTTP headers.  However, there seems to be some confusion in the various web pages I found for the exact name of the variable as accessed through ASP.  Is it HTTP_RIM_DEVICE_ID, HTTP_Rim-Device_Id, Rim-Device-Id, something else?

 

Thanks.

The header for the BlackBerry PIN is Rim-device-id.  The link below has more information.
