Description

Greetings!

I'm attempting to install my own CA certificate in StrongSwan for Android, but somehow I cannot get it to import it.
I have transferred said certificate to my tablet via FTP, however, there doesn't seem to be any way of accessing the folder "My Files".

Is there any other way to import the certificate?

You may install the CA certificate in the Android CA certificate store, but that produces a permanent system notification since Android 4.4. If you want to import it into the app directly opening it from a file manager might work (requires the proper mime type to be set). And you could also try the extended view in the Storage Access Framework file picker dialog that may be opened from the app's CA certificate view.
