Storing passwords

Is there a special BlackBerry API for password storage in an area encrypted to the device password, or similar?  Or should I just use a normal storage mechanism?

Re: Storing passwords

As far as I know, there is no such API yet.

Re: Storing passwords

As each app resides in a sandbox that cannot be accessed from the outside you can store passwords with a normal storage mechanism.
