The Windows Mobile 5.0 Security Model for developers
There's an interesting article on MSDN discussing how security is implemented on Windows Mobile 5.0. Developers working on Windows Mobile version 5.0–based devices, and using Visual Studio 2005, Visual C# and Visual Basic .NET should know about these changes.

Some policies are already known to developers targeting the Windows Mobile Smartphone platform. But now with Windows Mobile 5.0 bringing a unified model, it is interesting to find out how it will work on Pocket PC - even more on Pocket PC Phone Edition devices.

According to the article "... Windows Mobile–based [device] implements a set of security policies that determine whether an application is allowed to run and, if allowed, with what level of trust. To develop an application for a Windows Mobile–based device, developers need to know what the security configuration of a device is. Developers need to know how to sign an application with the appropriate certificate to allow the application to run (and to run with the needed level of trust)".
