    hey guys, i wanted to get your opinion on this. I am a 22 year old graduate student who owns a bb 9630 from sprint without a data plan and i do backups every now and then. i was recently looking for a way to retrieve past text messages so i thought why not look in my backups? well, apparently the backup files are .bbm so i found out if you change it to .zip, open the file, and open the .ipd file within the .zip file as a word document, you'll get a nice 500+ page word document filled with all sorts of interesting things related to your back up.

    When scrolling around, i found this:

    It probably had DOD root certificates installed on it. Everybody can install them. It may have installed by default on an OS installation...

    That would be my guess.

    no one takes 2 seconds to google anything anymore?????

    Installing the DoD Root Certificates will allow your web browsers to trust the identity of websites, such as ONR's, whose secure communications are authenticated by the Department of Defense.

    Is this required? No, however, this will help you avoid Security Alert windows when you to go to secure communication websites for various DoD agencies, including the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Future access to DoD web sites may require certificates.

    considering RIM works close with government agencies, those who use highly encrypted data and secure log-ins, these certs help the user gain access. you can put your tin foil hats down. the reason they are on your phone is because when the OS was installed, the DOD Root Certificates box was checked off.
