My Own Notes - Android

Adding self-signed certificates:

  1. Set “screen lock” to “PIN” or other authentication method you like.
    Important: do _not_ skip this step - otherwise it won't work.
  2. Open Firefox on your computer, click on the padlock in the URL line
    click padlock
    → More Information …
    → Security
    → View Certificate
    view certificate
    → Details
    view details
    → Export
    click export
  3. Export SSL cert as X.509 DER with extension “.crt”
    export as der with .crt
  4. Copy/download the .crt file to your phone and remember where you save it to.
  5. On your phone, browser to the .crt file, click on it and install it.

    OR if this does not work:
    Go to:
    → Settings
    → Personal
    → Security
    → Credential Storage
    → "Install from Storage"
    install from storage
    → Select your previously downloaded/copied .crt file
    select .crt file
    → Give the certificate a name, and choose "VPN and apps"
    give the cert a name
    → Click ok.
  6. The certificate should now be installed.

    To verify the installation of the certificate open:
    → "Trusted Credentials"
    open trusted certs
    → and switch to "User"
    view installed trusted certs

    Your certificate should be listed here. If not, then there was probably something wrong with your .crt file and Android was not able to install it.
