Development of mobile applications have picked up really fast in the last couple of years. Much has been written about the security assessment of iOS & Android applications, however much information is not available for the security assessment of blackberry applications. The aim of this paper will be to understand different types of blackberry applications, give brief information on the technological platforms used to develop them and discuss security issues that can crop up in them. We’ll first understand more about technical platforms supported by blackberry for the development of software. Then we’ll understand different types of blackberry applications.Additionally, we’ll develop a little more understanding on how client-server applications work over HTTP, as these applications will be our area of focus.
