 hello folk

system media provider is global db, anybody can access file from it
and delete too,
i want add image in it, with private mode,

"public static final String  insertImage(ContentResolver cr, Bitmap
source, String title, String description) "

 is it possible, to have private media file in media provider, so that
nobody can change it or delete it. since in above API function there
is no such provision to keep media file in private mode.

thank you

IMO, you need bootstrap credentials in order to exploit secure hardware
because with device certificates you can:
1. authenticate the device in a phishing-secure way
2. securely import secret data using the the public key for encryption

Hi John

No I did not and pinged Ms Hackborn as well

But no luck so far

Think eventually this will need to be addressed

Are very specific on hw requirements

Along the lines of OMTP TR1, Adv Trusted Env.

If others are concerned on this maybe we can share a short list of expected hw
