Default Peer-to-Peer Encryption key

Please Login to Remove!

I am wondering if there is a way to be able to pin others with my bb out side of my bes without altering the corperate encryption key. I really just want to do it for my phone the vp's dont seem to care. Or is there a way to share the key with the people i want to pin?

I am the bes admin here, but i dont want to change what has already been set. If I did happen to change this setting would it have an effect on anyone? or would it go unnoticed?

If you've altered your peer-to-peer encryption key; such that you have a corporate one set, you cannot PIN to PIN message users that are not within your BES domain.

If you remove this key, your PIN to PIN messages would no longer be considered encrypted but rather scrambled as all PIN to PIN messages would then be sent using the BB shared key.

You beat me to it hdawg. If you search RIM's TKC for peer encryption key you will find some docs on it. It's a simple read with some good info.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. This is a global setting; you cannot change it for 1 person.

The peer-to-peer encryption key is not a per-user changable item.
It's a global change.

wonder if there is a way to remove it off one phone manually. Not sure why the org chose to do this. I dont think they use pin at all anyways. And I am sure my boss would not like my reason to shut off corp encryption "Personal Use" lol.

thanks for your help

No, there's no way to remove it from one phone manually... other than removing that one from the BES.

They likely set the encryption key on the server to specifically prevent personal PIN messages to/from the device.
Trying to circumvent that corporate decision is only going to result in getting yourself fired.
