Security for an OTA Bootstrap document is implemented as described in "The Generic Security Mechanism" in the OMA Provisioning Bootstrap Specification Version 1.1 (OMA-WAP-ProvBoot-v1_1-20050428-C).

ProvBoot-B-C-008 The PROVURL Parameter is Unique Within the Device

The configuration context, which is defined by the required PROVURL parameter, is unique to Windows Mobile devices and is implemented as described in "Bootstrap of Configuration Context" in the OMA Provisioning Bootstrap Specification Version 1.1 (OMA-WAP-ProvBoot-v1_1-20050428-C).
