Is therea shared certificate truststore in BB OS 7+?

My company is exploring the possiblities of developing its App for the BB platform.

 

For iOS we learned the hardway that ther eis no shared truststore for client side X.509 certificates as obtained by an app for use by the user in other apps.

 

For Android as of version 4.1 this appears to be a available.

 

Now my 2 question which I hope this community can answer for me:

1)

Is the BB truststore for client certificates also shared? Ie. can my app obtain a client X.509 certificate and corresponding key-pair, manage it, and make it thus available for other apps running on the BB device?

 

2)

What is the maximum supported key length for both RSA and Elliptic Curve for client X.509 certificates on the BB platform?

 

 

Many thanks in advance !

Hi,

 

The architecture is different for BlackBerry 7 and BlackBerry 10.

 

On BlackBerry 7 there are classes like this;

http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/7.1.0api/net/rim/device/api/crypto/keystore/DeviceKeyStore...

 

on BlackBerry 10 there is no API available at this time.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

now it's 3 year's later ... any update on this?

 

"on BlackBerry 10 there is no API available at this time."

 

or only possible via BES?

Re: Is therea shared certificate truststore in BB OS 10

as far as i know you can only handle your own certificates.
they developed some APIs, but they only work for the work browser, not for native apps. I guess nowadays there is not much development anyway, all developers i knew personally are no longer with the company.
