VPN on Blackberry OS

This documentation describes how to configure an IPSec VPN (IKEv2) connection with Perfect Privacy on a Blackberry device. This how-to works on all devices running Blackberry 10.x or newer.

First download the IPSec certificate by visiting following URL in the browser App of your Blackberry, then save the file:

https://www.perfect-privacy.com/member/download/?file=ipsec_ca.zip

You do not need to unzip the archive you can simply tap on it in the download folder.

Tap on the ipsec_ca folder and then on the file perfect-privacy_ca.p12 to import the certificate.

The password for the certificate is “pp“. The certificate will only be used for the VPN connection so you can activate the option “Restrict usage to VPN”.

Next tap on Import.

Now go into System Settings and navigate through Networks and Connections to VPN.

Tap on Add VPN Profile to configure a new VPN connection. As Profile Name you can enter anything. As Server Address use the VPN-Server you want to connect to, for this documentation we use basel.perfect-privacy.com.
