The BlackBerry Smart Card Reader™ for BlackBerry® devices with the Secure Multi-Purpose Internet Mail Extension (S/MIME) Support Package is an accessory that, when used in proximity to certain Bluetooth®-enabled BlackBerry devices, integrates smart card use with the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution™. The BlackBerry Smart Card Reader is designed to communicate wirelessly with Bluetooth® version 1.1 (or later)-enabled BlackBerry devices using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256 encryption method on the transport layer, creating a reliable two-factor authenticated environment for granting access to BlackBerry and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) applications without the use of passwords.

Through an Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) key exchange, the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader is designed to enable wireless digital signing and encryption of wireless email messages. All keys on the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader are stored only in RAM and are never written to flash memory. There is no password to contain the data (including the master key) on the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader.
