I'm making a PHP MDM server and I have a concern about the CSR signing process (Vendor Action).

I would like to know if I can sign a customer CSR with the APNS Certificate that I got with OSX Lion Server and return the encoded plist to the customer?

I tried but I got an "invalid signature" from .

I don't know if it's caused by my signing code or the Certificate itself.

Currently I'm not enrolled in the Enterprise Program. I'm enrolled as Individual so I can't create a MDM Certificate from the portal that's why I used the MDM Certificate created with OsX Lion Server.

Thank you

you can use arbitrary Apple ID for APNs

Your rating: None

AFAIK, you can use arbitrary Apple ID to sign certificates to use with the APNs, the only thing you will not be able to do is deploying in-house developed apps. But yes, earlier it was true what you said, you needed to be an Enterprise developer to run an MDM server.
Others with deeper knowledge of this topic, please correct me if I am wrong.
