The N91 supports the DER/CER format.

1) Get a .CER (the certificate) file
2) Using PCSuite, copy that .CER file to your phone in any folder really. Documents will work
3) Using FileManager on your phone, navigate to the file, and you should be able to "open" it, and then it will say do you want to import it

These certificates you talk, are validation codes, to use in e-mail, when comunicate with autorities, or private organizations, like the ones used in Outlook - on a PC? Digital signatures? Is that?

Certificates are for security and yes they are about communicating identity (it's a bit more than that, but I'm not an expert). S60 has a lot of these preinstalled (e.g. the ones used on many SSL websites), but sometimes people need to add thier own. The most common is for email servers.

Thanks! I understood the first question badly. I thought that the problem was to install, how / what kind, to install... Then I realize, the mistake I had made. Thanks again for the clarification!

Does this hold true for any S60 3rd Ed device?

Is there a way to install a .pem cert to the N91?

I answered the question myself. May it be helpful for anyone.

Just use openssl to convert the cert like this:

openssl x509 -outform der -in MYCERT.pem -out MYCERT.der

Then proceed as described above (.der seems to be pretty much the same as .cer, at least my N91 accepted it).

Cheers
