I'm 70% certain you don't any extra signatures for these simple crypto primitives. However, if it turns out you need RCC (RIM Crypto API - Certicom) signatures for these primitives, you can requst RIM to grant you the RCC signing permission for no extra cost. RIM announced this at the BlackBerry DevCon 2009. Not sure what the procedure is for requesting the RCC .csi file given these new rules. Try contacting Mike Kirkup, if you are an Alliance Partner...

Re: License for security API

I sent an email to RIM and got the response "I used your email to find your account and sent you the keys." Happened within ~3 hours from me sending the email to receiving them.

rcmaniac25, would you please post here which RIM e-mail address you used to request the RCC .csi file so that other developers can use this as a reference in the future? Three hour round-trip sounds like a success story for RCC.

I have a feeling I just was lucky with timing so I wouldn't hold the timing as always happening. Either way it works and all is well.

Re: License for security API

I am going to write a test app tomorrow to use these simple algorithm just to see if separate keys are needed. I will post the results.

Reporting Back

 

No new key is needed. I juest signed the app with the regular keys I got from RIM and those algorithms work on the   physical  device.

Re: License for security API

Good to know since they are common algorithms.

License for security API

There is a good news from Certicom. Now we can get their license for free without any contract.
