SSL certificate installation

This network employs various technologies which involve the use of locally generated SSL certificates. In order for these technologies to work effectively (in particular, to avoid browser security warnings and ensure compatibility with mobile applications), your computer or mobile device must install and trust the network's SSL root certificate.

This guide will help you install the SSL root certificate for Android-based mobile devices.

Step 1

First, click the Download Certificate button below; this will download the certificate file to a temporary location on your device.

Step 2

Android certificate name prompt

You will be prompted to enter a name for the certificate. Enter whatever you like (Cipafilter is recommended), make sure that Credential use is set to VPN and apps, and then tap OK.

(Note: These images show the steps for Chrome running on Android 6.0 on a Nexus 5x; since Android devices vary greatly, you may not see exactly the same thing if you are using another device or a different version of Android; however, the general process and wording should be the same.)

Step 3

Android PIN prompt

Depending on your device and its configuration, you may be prompted to enter your device PIN. If you don't have a PIN set, you may be prompted to create one.

Step 4

Android certificate installation notice

You will see a confirmation that the certificate has been installed.

Step 5

Android network monitoring notice

You may additionally see a warning indicating that a third party (the filter) is capable of monitoring your device's Web traffic. This message is normal and can be dismissed by pressing the back button.

Step 6

You're done! You will see a confirmation that the certificate has been installed, and then you may continue browsing as usual; in most cases, you will not notice anything different after the certificate is installed.
