strongSwan VPN Client for Android 4+

The strongSwan VPN Client for Android 4 and newer is an App that can be downloaded directly from Google Play.

There are some limitations at the moment:

  • Only IKEv2 is supported
  • User authentication is either EAP authentication based on username/password (EAP-MSCHAPv2, EAP-MD5, EAP-GTC) or RSA/ECDSA authentication with private key/certificate. Since version 1.4.5 of the app EAP-TLS is supported too.
  • Split tunneling has to be enforced by the gateway (the client proposes as remote traffic selector)
  • Only a single tunnel can be established at a time
  • The IPsec proposal is limited to AES encryption with SHA1/SHA2 data integrity or AES-GCM authenticated encryption

How to build the app is documented on a separate page.
