Certificate management

Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone mgmt. > Security > Certificate management.

Digital certificates should be used if you want to connect to an online bank or another site or remote server for actions that involve transferring confidential information. They should also be used if you want to reduce the risk of viruses or other malicious software and be sure of the authenticity of software when downloading and installing software.

Select from the following:

Authority certificates - View and edit authority certificates.

Trusted site certificates - View and edit trusted site certificates.

Personal certificates - View and edit personal certificates.

Phone certificates - View and edit device certificates.

Digital certificates do not guarantee safety; they are used to verify the origin of software.

Important: Even if the use of certificates makes the risks involved in remote connections and software installation considerably smaller, they must be used correctly in order to benefit from increased security. The existence of a certificate does not offer any protection by itself; the certificate manager must contain correct, authentic, or trusted certificates for increased security to be available. Certificates have a restricted lifetime. If "Expired certificate" or "Certificate not valid yet" is shown, even if the certificate should be valid, check that the current date and time in your device are correct.

View certificate details — check authenticity

You can only be sure of the correct identity of a server when the signature and the validity period of a server certificate have been checked.

You are notified if the identity of the server is not authentic or if you do not have the correct security certificate in your device.

To check the details of a certificate, select Options > Certificate details. The validity of the certificate is checked, and one of the following notes may be displayed:

Certificate not trusted - You have not set any application to use the certificate.

Expired certificate - The certificate validity period has ended.

Certificate not valid yet - The certificate validity period has not yet begun.

Certificate corrupted - The certificate cannot be used. Contact the certificate issuer.

Change the trust settings

Before changing any certificate settings, you must make sure that you really trust the owner of the certificate and that the certificate really belongs to the listed owner.

To change the settings for an authority certificate, select Options > Trust settings. Depending on the certificate, a list of the applications that can use the selected certificate is shown. For example:

Symbian installation: Yes - The certificate is able to certify the origin of a new Symbian operating system application.

Internet: Yes - The certificate is able to certify servers.

App. installation: Yes - The certificate is able to certify the origin of a new Java application.

To change the value, select Options > Change trust setting.

Security module

Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone mgmt. > Security > Security module.

To view or edit a security module (if available), select it from the list.

To view detailed information about a security module, select Options > Security details.

Restore original settings

Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone mgmt. > Factory settings.

You can reset some of the settings to their original values. To do this, you need the lock code.

After resetting, the device may take a longer time to power on. Documents and files are unaffected.

Protected content

To manage digital rights licences, select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone mgmt. > Security > Protected content.

Digital rights management

Content owners may use different types of digital rights management (DRM) technologies to protect their intellectual property, including copyrights. This device uses various types of DRM software to access DRM-protected content. With this device you can access content protected with WMDRM 10, OMA DRM 1.0, and OMA DRM 2.0. If certain DRM software fails to protect the content, content owners may ask that such DRM software's ability to access new DRM-protected content be revoked. Revocation may also prevent renewal of such DRM-protected content already in your device. Revocation of such DRM software does not affect the use of content protected with other types of DRM or the use of non-DRM-protected content.

Digital rights management (DRM) protected content comes with an associated activation key that defines your rights to use the content.

If your device has OMA DRM-protected content, to back up both the activation keys and the content, use the backup feature of Nokia Ovi Suite. Other transfer methods may not transfer the activation keys which need to be restored with the content for you to be able to continue the use of OMA DRM-protected content after the device memory is formatted. You may also need to restore the activation keys in case the files on your device get corrupted.

If your device has WMDRM-protected content, both the activation keys and the content will be lost if the device memory is formatted. You may also lose the activation keys and the content if the files on your device get corrupted. Losing the activation keys or the content may limit your ability to use the same content on your device again. For more information, contact your service provider.

Some activation keys may be connected to a specific SIM card, and the protected content can be accessed only if the SIM card is inserted in the device.

Notification lights

Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Notificat. lights.

To turn the standby breathing light on or off, select Standby br. light.

When the standby breathing light is turned on, the menu key lights up periodically.

To turn the notification light on or off, select Notification light.

When the notification light is turned on, the menu key lights up for a period you define to notify of missed events, such as missed calls or unread messages.
