Not sure if I'm right on target with my question here but here it goes anyways....
I am wondering what may be important when deploying apps to a windows mobile device from an https website...
Hope you guys(and/or girls) can give me some more ideas and hints or tips about this topic cause I don't know much about it myself...
These are the things I know:
When surfing to an https website a pop-up appears, but when I would get an SSL certificate for that website from verisign for example this pop-up wouldn't appear anymore I would guess....
I also know that a mobile device needs a certificate installed, I guess the installer of the app also needs to install the certificate if it's the first time, or maybe the certificate installs itself when visiting the website...
What is the easiest way to deploy applications? I would think thru a website... but what measures do I need to take, and what possible security issues should I take in account and what can I do about them?
Tips and hints are more then welcome..

Based on my understanding, you need to install the root certificate of the issuer that matching the one on the web server. If the browser is not able to find it, it will give a warning.
Assuming you are using Windows Mobile devices, for Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 5, you can use the following two articles:

How to install root certificates on a Windows Mobile-based device
For Windows Mobile 6, it is of slight difference, here is the improvement:

You may already noticed that the tools used in those article are different. This article has a table:
So if you want to intall them programlly, you can call them respectively on those devices.
