Options for assigning a BlackBerry device to a user account
When you assign a BlackBerry® device to a user account, you associate the BlackBerry device with that user’s messaging account and
install service books on the BlackBerry device. You can assign a BlackBerry device to a user account using one of the following methods:
• over a wired connection to the server that hosts the BlackBerry® Professional Software; this option provides you with the greatest
control over the timing of each BlackBerry device activation and over wireless network charges
• over the wireless network, using a wireless enterprise activation password; because users do not require a physical connection to
your organization's network, this option provides a user with the most flexibility in how to activate the BlackBerry device
• over a wired connection to the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager on the user's computer; with this option, a user can activate the
BlackBerry device at a convenient time, but the wireless network is available for use by messaging traffic
Assign a BlackBerry device to a user account using the BlackBerry Manager
You can use this method if you want to assign a BlackBerry® device to a user account and control the activation of the BlackBerry device
before distributing it to the user.

6. Click OK.
Assigning a BlackBerry device to a user over the wireless network
You can assign a BlackBerry® device to a user over the wireless network by generating a wireless activation password, assigning the
password to a user account, and sending the password to the user in an email message. The user types the password on the BlackBerry
device to associate the BlackBerry device with the user's account on the messaging server.
You can use this method to assign either a new or a replacement BlackBerry device without requiring the user to have a wired connection
to the network in your organization.
The wireless activation password is specific to a user account. You can customize the password type and length. The password expires
after 48 hours by default or if the user types the password unsuccessfully 5 times on the BlackBerry device.
You can customize the default wireless activation message so that the message conforms to your organization's messaging policy. In your
message, you can also provide support contact information.
Specify the wireless activation message and password settings
If a user receives a wireless activation password, you cannot generate a new password for the user until the active password expires. The
password expires if the BlackBerry® device is not successfully activated in the BlackBerry® Professional Software after 48 hours by default,
or if the user unsuccessfully types the password 5 times consecutively.

Assign a BlackBerry device to a user using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager
When the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager is installed on a user's computer, the user can control the initial activation of a BlackBerry device.
During the activation process, the BlackBerry Desktop Manager prompts the user to associate the BlackBerry device with the user's account
on the messaging server and to generate an encryption key.
When the user completes the activation process, the BlackBerry® Professional Software loads messages, address book information, tasks,
and memos on to the BlackBerry device.
1. Verify that the BlackBerry Desktop Manager is installed on the user’s computer.
2. Instruct the user to start the BlackBerry Desktop Manager and to connect the BlackBerry device to the computer.
A message prompts the user to assign the BlackBerry device to the mail account. A second message prompts the user to generate
an encryption key.
Protecting lost or stolen BlackBerry devices
You can use IT administration commands to immediately protect your organization's confidential data on BlackBerry® devices over the
wireless network.
IT Admin command
Description
Set a Password and Lock Handheld
This command creates a new password and locks a lost BlackBerry device remotely.
You can communicate the new password to the user when the user locates the
BlackBerry device. When the user unlocks the BlackBerry device, the BlackBerry
device prompts the user to accept or reject the password change.
Erase Data and Disable Handheld
This command remotely erases all user information and application data that the
BlackBerry device stores.
You can use this command to prepare a BlackBerry device for transfer between
users in your organization or to protect a stolen BlackBerry device.
Protect a lost BlackBerry device
If a user misplaces a BlackBerry® device, you can help protect the data on the BlackBerry device by issuing commands to lock the
BlackBerry device or to make it unavailable.

Configuring organizer data synchronization
Organizer data includes items such as tasks, memos, and contacts. These are also referred to as personal information management items,
or PIM items. You can change the settings for organizer data items so that the entries on users' BlackBerry® devices and the entries in
the email application on their computers are the same.
You can set synchronization options globally for all user accounts, or you can set synchronization options for a specific user account. By
default, wireless synchronization of organizer data for all user accounts is turned on. If you change the global settings, the new settings
apply to any new user accounts that you set up. The new global settings are not applied to existing user accounts.

Configuring message handling
Managing email message filters
Email message filters define which email messages the BlackBerry® Professional Software redirects to BlackBerry devices. When a user
receives an email message in the incoming message queue, the BlackBerry Professional Software applies filters to determine how to direct
the message: forward, forward with priority, or do not forward to the user’s BlackBerry device.
Email message filters that you configure in the BlackBerry Professional Software overrule the email message filters that users define using
the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager or their BlackBerry devices.
You can create two types of email message filters in the BlackBerry Professional Software: global filters and user filters.
Global filters apply to all user accounts in the BlackBerry Professional Software. Users cannot view or change global filters. If you define
global filters, inform users so that they understand why some of the email message filter rules that they create might not apply to incoming
messages. If you change global filters, the BlackBerry Professional Software reads and applies the changes immediately.
User filters apply to specific user accounts in the BlackBerry Professional Software.

6. Click OK.
Optimize the handling of file attachments
You can optimize the performance of the BlackBerry® Attachment Service by controlling how it retrieves, distills, and converts attachment
data. Every attachment conversion process allocates memory when it starts, uses memory on conversion, and locally caches the Document
Object Model, also referred to as the DOM. A larger cache size means that more memory is allocated to each running conversion process.
The maximum file size of attachments affects the cached memory that the BlackBerry Attachment Service uses.
When the BlackBerry® Professional Software receives an attachment, the BlackBerry Attachment Service converts the attachment into a
DOM and caches the DOM locally. By default, the BlackBerry Attachment Service maintains the cache for 25 minutes or until a new
request exceeds the cache limit for that process. If the cache limit is exceeded, the BlackBerry Attachment Service deletes the document
with the oldest time stamp in the cache. When users request to view an attachment on their BlackBerry devices, the BlackBerry Attachment
Service accesses the DOM to process the request. The BlackBerry Attachment Service keeps all cached data in memory only and never
caches the original document.

Enforcing IT policy changes over the wireless network
If your BlackBerry® Device Software supports it, you can immediately enforce IT policy rule additions, deletions, or modifications on
BlackBerry devices. When the BlackBerry device receives an updated default IT policy or a new IT policy, the BlackBerry device and
BlackBerry® Desktop Software apply the configuration changes.
The BlackBerry® Professional Software resends the IT policy to the BlackBerry device to update the BlackBerry device and BlackBerry
Desktop Software behavior over the wireless network. By default, the BlackBerry Professional Software resends the IT policy to the
appropriate BlackBerry devices within a short period of time after you update the IT policy.
You can also resend an IT policy to a BlackBerry device manually. You can configure the BlackBerry Professional Software to resend IT
policies to BlackBerry devices at a scheduled interval, regardless of whether you have changed the IT policies.
Changing the default behavior of BlackBerry devices and BlackBerry Desktop
Software in your organization
You can use either of the following methods to change the default behavior of BlackBerry® devices and BlackBerry® Desktop Software in
your organization:
• set the values of IT policy rules in the default IT policy
• create a new IT policy, set its IT policy rule values, and assign one or more users or user groups to the new IT policy
When you set an IT policy rule to a True or False value, you prevent the user from selecting another value for a corresponding field on the
BlackBerry device.
When you type a string that simultaneously turns on an IT policy rule and provides the parameters for its use, the user cannot change the
value of a corresponding field on the BlackBerry device.
When you select a predefined, permitted value to assign to an IT policy rule, you restrict the values that the user can set for a corresponding
field on the BlackBerry device.
A lock icon next to a field on the BlackBerry device indicates that its setting is controlled by the IT policy and the user cannot change it.
You can add a standard IT policy rule to, remove a standard IT policy rule from, or change the assigned value of a standard IT policy rule
in an IT policy. You cannot add, remove, or change the values for a standard IT policy rule. You also cannot delete the standard IT policy
rules.
You can add a new IT policy rule to, remove a new IT policy rule from, or change the assigned value of a new IT policy rule in an IT policy
the same way that you change a standard IT policy rule in an IT policy.
Reverting to the default behavior of BlackBerry devices and BlackBerry Desktop
Software
To revert to the default behavior that an IT policy rule customizes or controls, you can set that IT policy rule to Default, if that setting is
available, or delete the value that you previously set.
37
If you assign users to a new IT policy, you can delete that IT policy to revert those users to the default behavior for all functionality on the
BlackBerry® device and the BlackBerry® Desktop Software. The BlackBerry® Professional Software automatically reassigns the users to
the Default IT policy and resends the default IT policy to the BlackBerry device, enforcing the settings in the Default IT policy.

Customizing wireless access to enterprise applications
Specify the central push server
You can configure the BlackBerry® MDS Connection Service as a central push server. The central push server acts as a single host that
receives content push requests from server-side applications that reside on a corporate application server, web server, or database. The
central push server handles push requests and delivers data and updates from a server-side application to BlackBerry devices.
1. In the BlackBerry Manager, click the Connection Service tab.
2. In the Common section, click Set as Push Server.
Configuring how BlackBerry devices authenticate with content servers
If you configured the content servers in your environment to use an authentication protocol to authenticate the sources of data requests
that they receive, you can specify how BlackBerry® devices authenticate with those content servers to obtain application data and updates.
Configure whether BlackBerry devices authenticate with content servers directly, or whether the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
authenticates with content servers on behalf of BlackBerry devices. If you configure BlackBerry devices to authenticate directly with
content servers, users are prompted to provide login credentials every 30 minutes on their authenticated BlackBerry devices. If you do
not configure an authentication method for BlackBerry MDS Connection Service connections, users are prompted only if the connection
to the content server persists for more than 30 minutes.

Allowing push applications on external web servers to make trusted connections to
the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
You can configure the BlackBerry® MDS Connection Service to allow push applications on untrusted web servers to push content and
updates to BlackBerry devices. If you want to establish trusted connections between external web servers and the BlackBerry MDS
Connection Service, you must initialize a key store file (webserver.keystore) on the computer on which the BlackBerry MDS Connection
Service is installed. This allows the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service to accept HTTPS connections from push applications on external
web servers.
Your organization can trust a web server that hosts push applications but is external to your environment if the BlackBerry® Professional
Software stores a certificate for it in the key store file. To trust external web servers, you can configure BlackBerry devices to use the
BlackBerry MDS Connection Service to retrieve certificate information for web servers that host push applications, and then use the
Java® keytool to install the certificates on the computer on which the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service is installed. Push applications
can then use the trusted certificates to authenticate with the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service.
The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service supports LDAP and OCSP for certificate and certificate status retrieval, and SSL/TLS for
authenticated connections using trusted certificates.

Specify device ports for application-reliable push requests
Application developers can design custom BlackBerry® Java® Applications to handle application-reliable push requests. When a BlackBerry
Java Application receives an application-reliable push request, it returns a delivery confirmation to the BlackBerry MDS Connection
Service, which delivers the confirmation to the server-side push application. The application's developer or the application's documentation
can provide information about the ports that are defined for BlackBerry Applications that support application-reliable push requests. You
can then specify the device ports that each BlackBerry Java Application uses to listen for application-reliable push requests.

Indexing applications on a network drive
You create a software index for the applications that you add to the network drive so that the application loader tool and software
configurations can locate the applications that are available to add to BlackBerry® devices. When you create a software index, the
BlackBerry® Professional Software creates a specification.pkg file and a PkgDBCache.xml index file for each application.
The index files are created automatically for recent versions of the BlackBerry® Device Software. Check your application folder for the .xml
file and .pkg files.
Create a software index for the applications in the shared network folder
1. Open a command prompt window. On the server that hosts the BlackBerry® Professional Software, on the taskbar, click Start >
Run. Type cmd.
2. At the command prompt, type cd <drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Apploader .
3. Type loader.exe /index.
The application loader tool builds the software index structure in the network drive and adds any missing index files.
4. Type exit.
5. Verify that the folder for the application now contains the following two files: .xml file and .pkg file.
6. Next, you create the new software configuration.
Reindex the applications in the shared network folder
If you change an .alx file after you create an index for the applications in the shared network folder, you must reindex the applications.
1. At the command prompt, navigate to <drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Apploader.
2. Type loader.exe /reindex.
The application loader updates the software index structure in the shared network folde and adds any missing index files.
3. Next, you create a software configuration.
Defining software configurations
A software configuration points to the shared network location of the BlackBerry® Device Software and applications that you plan to
install on a specific BlackBerry device model. Using a software configuration, you can remotely add and remove third-party applications
using the application loader tool on BlackBerry devices that are connected to computers running the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager.
58
You create a software configuration for each BlackBerry device model in your organization. When you create a software configuration,
you can define application control policies to specify the resources that applications can access on BlackBerry devices from behind your
organization's firewall. You can also use application control policies to monitor the installed applications and to make sure that certain
applications remain installed on, or are removed from, BlackBerry devices.

Controlling the BlackBerry environment
Protecting BlackBerry device data in transit
From the time that the user sends data (for example, an email message) from the BlackBerry® device until the BlackBerry® Professional
Software receives the data, and from the time that the BlackBerry Professional Software receives and forwards data to the user until the
user receives the data on the BlackBerry device, standard BlackBerry encryption uses a symmetric algorithm to protect the data.
By default, the BlackBerry Professional Software uses both the Triple Data Encryption Standard (Triple DES or 3DES) and the Advanced
Encryption Standard (AES) algorithms to encrypt all communication with BlackBerry devices.
Encryption algorithm
Description
Notes
Triple DES
enables the use of the Triple DES algorithm to provides Triple DES encryption only on

between the BlackBerry Professional Software
and all BlackBerry devices
AES

the BlackBerry Professional Software and all
BlackBerry devices
Triple DES and AES
provides Triple DES encryption on BlackBerry provides the default encryption method

devices that run BlackBerry® Device Software
versions earlier than 4.0)
• uses a longer encryption key, which is
designed to provide a better
combination of security and
performance than Triple DES
• helps to protect user data and
encryption keys from traditional and
side-channel attacks
