Connection security

If the security indicator ( ) is displayed during a

connection, the data transmission between the device

and the internet gateway or server is encrypted.

The security icon does not indicate that the data

transmission between the gateway and the content

server (where the data is stored) is secure. The service

provider secures the data transmission between the

gateway and the content server.
Security certificates may be required for some services,

such as banking services. You are notified if the identity

of the server is not authentic or if you do not have the

correct security certificate in your device. For more

information, contact your service provider.

Important: Even if the use of certificates makes

the risks involved in remote connections and software

installation considerably smaller, they must be used

correctly in order to benefit from increased security.

The existence of a certificate does not offer any

protection by itself; the certificate manager must

contain correct, authentic, or trusted certificates for

increased security to be available. Certificates have a

restricted lifetime. If "Expired certificate" or

"Certificate not valid yet" is shown, even if the

certificate should be valid, check that the current date

and time in your device are correct.
Before changing any certificate settings, you must

make sure that you really trust the owner of the

certificate and that the certificate really belongs to the

listed owner.
