Which device vendor are you using with your Android Devices?

With Asus Tablets I dont get any Pulse Cert Authentication working, no way (but Gingerbread, Android 2.3). JTAC still didnt find a solution either .

I tested in

 

Android 4.0.3
Samsung Galaxy (GT-7000)
Pulse 3.2.0.19739

 

Cert Authentication works fine for me.

Re: Pulse Cert Authentication in Android 4.0 (ICS)

Hello RDIT,

 

Is there a specific case number for this issue?  I can take a look at it.  

 

The most common issue is the certificate files are not in binary format.  If the certificate are in base64, Pulse will fail to read the certificate.  Here is a general kb article about how to configure certificate authentication:

Okay I got some Feedback from JTAC now:

 

There is no solution for this as it is limitation in Pulse version release that is published in market place. We will test this against pulse version 4.0 release code and will let you know the results.

Re: Pulse Cert Authentication in Android 4.0 (ICS)

Hello Rdit,

 

Do you have details about this limitation provided by jtac?  I'm running on 4.0.4 on a Nexus S 4G so it's not specific to the android version.  I've tested certificate authentication on this device with 3.x and 4.x Pulse version and I don't remember running into any limitation.

 

If you could provide the case number, I can review the existing data.

Hello Rdit,

 

JTAC is correct on this issue.  Android for Pulse supports only certificate authentication (through an certificat authentication server).  Certificate restrictions on the realm or role are not currently supported.

Re: Pulse Cert Authentication in Android 4.0 (ICS)

Yes I understand this. Its just hard to explain to my boss, why its working and supported on Apple Devices and not on Android Devices...

Re: Pulse Cert Authentication in Android 4.0 (ICS)

Hi Ridt,

 

 Ok, iOS and Android are different mobile operating systems and iOS have the capability to support both Cert.auth and Cert.check however, Android base os have limitation in this area.

 

Thanks,
