    IT policy for blackberry messengers

    Advertisement



    I was wondering is it possible to set a blackberry messenger policy on bes express that employees are only allowed to add people who are on our bes system?

    I think the only IT Policies for the BB Messenger are to either enable or disable it and to audit info on it

    What does the audit info do?

    Answer to your question: Yes.

    You need to alter the encryption keys for all handhelds on a specific BES so they can only send P2P messages internally, because stock out of the box, all BB's use the same encryption keys for BBM messaging.

    Is it possible to get step by step instructions? This would mean they can't add other people and would only be able to talk to people on our BES server only?

    HEY!

    Sorry about the delay, but I forgot about this to be honest with you...

    Here is a step by step:

    All BlackBerry devices have a common, global peer-to-peer
    encryption key by default. You can limit the number of BlackBerry devices that can decrypt PIN messages that users in your organization send from their BlackBerry devices by generating a new peer-to-peer encryption key that is known only to BlackBerry devices in your organization. BlackBerry devices with an organization specific peer-to-peer encryption key can send and receive PIN messages with other BlackBerry devices with the same organization peer-to-peer encryption key only.
    You should generate a new organization peer-to-peer
    encryption key if you know that the current corporate peer-to-peer encryption key is compromised.
    1. In the BlackBerry Manager, in the left pane, click BlackBerry Domain.
    2. On the Global tab, expand Service Control & Customization.
    3. Click Update Peer-to-Peer Encryption Key.
    4. Click Set or update the Peer-to-Peer encryption key for all devices within this organization.
    5. Click Yes.

    How about if you are having the opposite problem?

    You have users who are on a BES Server (I'm the admin) and they would like to message people in outside organziations, or even people who do not belong to a BES server. Do they regenerate a key until one works?

    More specificly, I have a few users who can receive pin messages, but when they reply, the other user never receives them. I thought I read some where that there was a patch available for the BES server, but I haven't had any luck finding anything today.
