Connect BYOD Devices - Android Certificate Install

Android Logo These instructions are for Android. There are separate instructions for Windows, Apple and Chromebook devices.

On your Android BYOD device, you may get security warnings when going to secure websites like "There are problems with the security certificate for this site". Secure websites have addresses that begin with "https" and they show a padlock icon in your browser's address bar once they've loaded. To load these sites without the error messages you need to install a Kerikeri High School certificate onto your device.

There are several versions of Android. Go into "Settings" and "About" or "About Device" to see which version you have. The certificate install process is more or less the same on all of them but on Android versions 2.x and 3.x there are some tricky problems to work around. Seek help from the IT Ninja's for these versions.
For Android verion 4.x and above the following instructions should work.

1. Ensure your device has a lock screen PIN or swipecode set. Android 4.x and above won't let you install a certificate without one.

2. Ensure you are connected to Kerikeri High School's KKHS_BYOD wifi, have logged in through the Fortinet and have internet access. Instructions on how to do this are available here.

3. Open your device's web browser, and go to www.kerikerihigh.ac.nz/kkhscert.cer to download a Kerikeri High School certificate to the device's local storage. Android will probably just silently download it, but If you're asked name it something obvious like "kkhscert".

4. Go into the device's "Settings" then go into the "Security" option.

5. Scroll down to the "Credential Storage" section, select "Install from Device Storage", then "OK" the file you downloaded - kkhscert.

6. Enter your device's PIN number or swipecode when asked. The certificate will install and be ready for use.

7. Re-open your browser. Try going to a secure website, e.g. https://www.google.com
You should no longer get certificate security warnings.
