HCL Sametime uses APNs (Apple Push Notification service) to support OS level notifications to the HCL Sametime iOS application when the user has unread chat messages.

Sametime uses a provider certificate (hcl-apns-prod.pkcs12) to establish a secure connection between the Sametime server and the Apple Push Notification service. The Sametime server installation package installs a certificate valid for up to approximately one year from release.
