I just wanted to know if it is possible with android 2.2+ to use a ca-cert for server auth in WPA-Enterprise networks? A fried told me it is not possible, but this would mean there would be a mayor security hole in every android device, so I would like to know it for sure now: did they removed this important security feature or not? I would check it by myself, but unfortunately I don't have a android 2.2 or 2.3 device.

  • I'm pretty sure I've done this but I don't exactly remember. Android certainly lets you use certificates. – Matthew Read Feb 15 '11 at 2:36

At least on 2.2.1 I can see the options to use certificates. First you have to install the certificates by placing them on your sdcard and using Settings -> Location and security -> Install encrypted certificates. Then you can add the network from Settings -> Wireless and network -> Wi-Fi settings -> Add Wi-Fi network. Select 802.1x EAP as the security mode and then just configure the settings to work for your network. Can't test myself since we don't use WPA-Enterprise class security, but it should be this straightforward.
