  • Double click the pad clock. then you can see the certificate window. Click View Certificate button. In the certificate viewer window select Details Tab and select Export button.

  • Then Save your Certificate as X.509 (PEM) format.  You will get this kind of file.
  • Open eclipse and Create new Blackberry Project. Copy Certificate file in to the same package that class created. (In here I'm writing my code in class thus i copied the certificate file in to Main package.)image
  • Following shows code sample
public Certificate ReadFile()
try {
Class classs = Class.forName("com.ironone.main.Main");
InputStream is = classs.getResourceAsStream("/DigiCertEVRootCA.crt");
// Certificate File Name :DigiCertEVRootCA.crt
byte[] data = new byte[is.available()];, 0, is.available());
Certificate c =CertificateUtilities.readCertificateFile(null, data);
// Import net.rim.device.api.crypto.certificate.CertificateUtilities
return c;    
catch (Exception ioe) {
return null;    
public void addCertToDeviceKeyStore (Certificate certificate)
KeyStore keyStore = DeviceKeyStore.getInstance();
//check if certificate is not already in the DeviceKeyStore
if (!keyStore.isMember(certificate))
String SFN = certificate.getSubjectFriendlyName();
CertificateStatus CS=certificate.getStatus();
keyStore.set(null,SFN ,certificate,CS , keyStore.getTicket());
