1) Is there a "data at rest encryption solution" for the Blackberry? The scenario: One of our user is traveling. Somehow his Blackberry winds up in the wrong hands (lets say a hostile foreign power) and they do a memory dump. Is there a way to encrypt the Blackberry similar to "Full Drive Encryption" on a laptop.
2) Can you send an encrypted message from the Blackberry or can you just read them?
3) I assume that sending encrypted messages within our company is trivial, because we are on a common PKI infrastructure (within Notes). How does it work with others who are NOT on our PKI infrastructure? Can it be done? If so how do you obtain and import their public keys? What formats do their public keys need to be in?
there is no way to do a memory dump if the device is password protected. Also from a BES you can lock the device/wipe the device remotely. 10 tries on the password and the device will wipe itsel. I know this doesnt answer you question entirely, but it is a start until the BES admins get here
