Capabilities (Symbian Signed)/NetworkControl Capability
NetworkControl is a capability that has the ability to modify or access network protocol controls.
Typically when an action can change the behavior of several existing and future connections, it should be protected by NetworkControl. For example, forcing all existing connections on a specific protocol to be dropped or changing the priority of a call.
Certified Signing is needed for this Capability.
Here are some example Application Categories that may need to use this capability: -
- Device Management and Device Blocking,
- Network Monitoring,
- Hotspot Framework
For more examples see: Sensitive Applications.
