FAQ: RIM Explains The Different Levels Of Content Protection

Have you ever turned on content protection on your BlackBerry? Ever wondered what the different levels, Strong/Stronger/Strongest, mean to you? I have so I was happy to finally see RIM explain them out. Turns out that they are different encryption strengths based on the table below:

Content protection setting Encryption strength
Strong 80 bits
Stronger 128 bits
Strongest 256 bits

One more vague setting on the BlackBerry explained.

  1. Hmm…I’ve never set it any higher than Strong. I wonder what (if?) performance penalty there might be from using higher encryption?

  2. Probably significant. It has to work that much harder… 🙂
