    SSL connection

    HI, I would like to find out if it is possible to establish a secure link from the mobile phone to a secure server using SSL? If it can be done, is it stable or it varies with different phone models or even phone manufacturers?

    Thanks a lot for the help,
    Tina

    Re: SSL connection

    Yes it is very much possible to establish a secure link from the mobile phone to a secure server using SSL.

    For SSL to work correctly one needs to have root CA certificate installed on the handset. Your phone manufacturer should allow you to install CA certificate on the handset. If you are going to purchase SSL certificate from standard company like Thwate or verisign then most phones have ca certificates preinstalled. I have sucessfully tried SSL connection from following nokia models, nokia 6021, 6600 and 9300.

    Re: SSL connection

    HI, Thanks for the response.
    The phones that you have worked successfully seems to be from the high end. How about the lower end phone like 6610? How do I check if the phone supports SSL because I don't think it is listed as one of the phone featueres right?

    Also, for the PC ssl connection, usually, only the server is authenticated. How about the mobile version?

    Do you do a ssl connection to the way gateway?

    Thanks,
