    DOD Root Certificate?

    Advertisement



    When you're upgrading OS and it shows all the different applications to be loaded, the only one unchecked is DOD Root Certificate. What is this? Department Of Defense?

    Don't know if yours is configured like mine, but go to Options>Security>Certificates and look how many DOD certificates there are there. I have 22..

    Are they of any use if you don't work for the DOD?

    Re: DOD Root Certificate?

    Ha...Thats a good question. I haven't the slightest idea. Whenever I ask someone who should know, they give me the same smart *** answer that "the government is watching you, and if you delete them it will blow up your blackberry".
    Now actually that I look at it...It seems that I have about 40+ certificates from the DOD and the US Government...
    Anyone able to shed any light?

    Even if they don't mean anything, it still would be a cool way to freak someone out...Show them their house on satellite (Google Local) and then pull that showing that you have DOD certificates on your blackberry...Hell, all you need to do then is bookmark websites like the NSA, CIA, FBI, DOD, State Dept and have those on there and people will think you're Bond....James Bond...
