Security in Device Projects
Security enabled devices restrict the installation and execution of applications and access to system APIs and resources, based on security configuration settings. All Windows Mobile platforms such as Classic, Standard, Professional, Pocket PC, and Smartphone are security enabled. In order for applications to install and run correctly on these devices, you may have to change the device's security configuration, add a certificate to the device's certificate store, and/or sign your application by using the appropriate certificate. This section includes topics that explain how to set up your application to run on devices with different security models.
