The "strongSwan VPN Client for Android 4 and newer":https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.strongswan.android is an app that can be installed directly from "Google Play":https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.strongswan.android.
6 41 Tobias Brunner
7 41 Tobias Brunner
Aside from "Google Play":https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.strongswan.android the released APKs are also available on "our download server":https://download.strongswan.org/Android/.

h2. Client Configuration
10 1 Tobias Brunner
11 26 Tobias Brunner
Since version [[AndroidVPNClient#180-2017-01-20|1.8.0]] of the app it is possible to [[AndroidVPNClientProfiles|import VPN profiles]] from files.
12 26 Tobias Brunner
13 21 Tobias Brunner
Client certificates and keys, and CA certificates may be added by [[SimpleCA#Install-certificates-in-other-platforms|bundling them into a PKCS#12 file]] and then importing that file into the Android system keystore. CA certificates and server certificates may also be imported directly into the app since [[AndroidVPNClient#140-2014-07-22|1.4.0]]. Importing CA certificates into the Android system keystore may trigger a warning since Android 4.4 ("Network may be monitored by an unknown third party":https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=62644), whereas importing CA certificates directly into the app will work fine.
14 21 Tobias Brunner
15 30 Tobias Brunner
Since [[AndroidVPNClient#190-2017-07-03|1.9.0]] split tunneling may be configured on the client (i.e. to only route specific traffic via VPN and/or to exclude certain traffic from the VPN). The client always proposes 0.0.0.0/0 as remote traffic selector and narrowing performed by the server still applies. Since [[AndroidVPNClient#150-2015-07-28|1.5.0]] the user may opt to block all traffic not destined for the VPN if the server does narrow the traffic selector.
16 30 Tobias Brunner
17 30 Tobias Brunner
Since [[AndroidVPNClient#190-2017-07-03|1.9.0]] it is possible to limit a VPN connection to specific apps or exclude certain apps from using the VPN (to them it will seem as if no VPN is present).
18 30 Tobias Brunner
19 47 Tobias Brunner
Since [[AndroidVPNClient#200-2018-06|2.0.0]] a Quick Settings tile (only for Android 7+) shows the current connection status and allows connecting/terminating the current VPN connection easily. The same version brought support for the Always-on VPN feature that may be enabled in the system's VPN settings on Android 7+ and will start the VPN profile after a reboot (refer to the changelog for potential caveats). The default VPN profile used for these two features may be configured in the app's global settings (the default is to initiate the most recently used profile).
20 1 Tobias Brunner
21 47 Tobias Brunner
The app allows creating shortcuts on the Android Launcher to quickly initiate specific VPN profiles.
22 47 Tobias Brunner
23 47 Tobias Brunner
Since [[AndroidVPNClient#200-2018-06|2.0.0]] it's possible to use Intents and a VPN profile's UUID to connect/terminate it with automation apps such as Llama or Tasker e.g. based on location, WiFi hotspots or other events.
24 47 Tobias Brunner
25 47 Tobias Brunner
{{collapse(How-to use Intents to connect/terminate VPN profiles)
26 47 Tobias Brunner
The UUID required for this can be found at the bottom of the advanced settings when editing a profile and may be copied from there.
27 47 Tobias Brunner
28 47 Tobias Brunner
To connect a profile use the following information in the Intent:
29 47 Tobias Brunner
30 47 Tobias Brunner
* *Package*: org.strongswan.android
31 47 Tobias Brunner
* *Action*: org.strongswan.android.action.START_PROFILE
32 47 Tobias Brunner
* *Extras*:
33 47 Tobias Brunner
** org.strongswan.android.VPN_PROFILE_ID : UUID of the profile to start (a string looking like this: _7b21d354-52ed-4c14-803a-a3370f575405_)
34 47 Tobias Brunner
35 47 Tobias Brunner
To disconnect the profile use the following information in the Intent:
36 47 Tobias Brunner
37 47 Tobias Brunner
* *Package*: org.strongswan.android
38 47 Tobias Brunner
* *Action*: org.strongswan.android.action.DISCONNECT
39 47 Tobias Brunner
* *Extras*:
40 47 Tobias Brunner
** org.strongswan.android.VPN_PROFILE_ID : UUID of the profile to disconnect
41 47 Tobias Brunner
* *Note*: If no profile ID is passed, or it doesn't match the ID of the currently connected profile, a confirmation dialog is shown that allows disconnecting the currently connected profile.

h2. Server Configuration
45 21 Tobias Brunner
46 21 Tobias Brunner
The app is compatible to the [[Windows7|Windows example configurations]] we provide. Since strongSwan version:5.2.1 and version [[AndroidVPNClient#145-2014-11-06|1.4.5]] of the app _fragmentation=yes_ may be added to the server config to use IKEv2 fragmentation, which avoids problems with IP fragmentation during connection establishment (due to large certificates or lots of certificate requests).
47 21 Tobias Brunner
48 21 Tobias Brunner
*Important:* The hostname/IP of the VPN server, as configured in the VPN profile, has to be contained as subjectAltName extension in the VPN server's certificate. Since [[AndroidVPNClient#160-2016-05-02|1.6.0]] the server identity may also be configured explicitly.
49 21 Tobias Brunner
50 21 Tobias Brunner
h2. Known Limitations/Issues
51 21 Tobias Brunner
52 1 Tobias Brunner
 * Only IKEv2 is supported
53 21 Tobias Brunner
 * Client authentication is limited to:
54 21 Tobias Brunner
55 42 Tobias Brunner
   * EAP authentication based on username/password (EAP-MSCHAPv2, EAP-MD5, EAP-GTC), also tunneled in EAP-TTLS/EAP-PEAP (see [[AndroidVPNClient#200-2018-06|2.0.0]] for limitations)
56 21 Tobias Brunner
   * RSA/ECDSA authentication with private key/certificate
57 21 Tobias Brunner
   * EAP-TLS with private key/certificate (see [[AndroidVPNClient#145-2014-11-06|1.4.5]] for limitations)
58 21 Tobias Brunner
 * The server always has to be authenticated with RSA/ECDSA (even when using EAP-TLS, see [[AndroidVPNClient#145-2014-11-06|1.4.5]])
59 1 Tobias Brunner
 * Only a single tunnel can be established at a time
60 46 Tobias Brunner
 * The IPsec default proposals are limited to AES encryption with SHA2/SHA1 data integrity or AES-GCM authenticated encryption. Optionally, using PFS with one of a number of proposed ECP/MODP DH groups. Since [[AndroidVPNClient#170-2016-12-08|1.7.0]] ChaCha20/Poly1305 authenticated encryption and Curve25519-based DH is also supported and proposed. And since [[AndroidVPNClient#195-2017-11-17|1.9.5]] a custom ESP proposal may be configured.
61 1 Tobias Brunner
62 27 Tobias Brunner
 * The app is not compatible with Google's "Project Fi":https://fi.google.com, which provides its own always-on VPN connection. To use the app this has to be disabled first using the following procedure.
63 22 Tobias Brunner
64 22 Tobias Brunner
   {{collapse(How-to disable Project Fi's always-on VPN)
65 22 Tobias Brunner
The always-on VPN connection can't be disabled without disabling the _Wi-Fi Assistant_ first:
66 22 Tobias Brunner
# In _Settings_ click _Google_
67 22 Tobias Brunner
# Click _Network_
68 22 Tobias Brunner
# Turn off the _Wi-Fi Assistant_ setting
69 22 Tobias Brunner
# Restart the device
70 22 Tobias Brunner
71 22 Tobias Brunner
Then turn off the always-on VPN connection:
72 22 Tobias Brunner
# In _Settings_ click _More_ under _Wireless & Networks_
73 22 Tobias Brunner
# Click _VPN_
74 22 Tobias Brunner
# Click the gear next to the _Wi-Fi Assistant_
75 22 Tobias Brunner
# Make sure "Always On" is not active
76 1 Tobias Brunner
}}
77 27 Tobias Brunner
78 37 Tobias Brunner
 * If you don't get a list of installed apps to exclude/include from the VPN you might have to explicitly allow the strongSwan app to get this list. For instance, on the Huawei Mate 9 via _Phone Manager > Permissions_.
79 37 Tobias Brunner
80 34 Tobias Brunner
 * It might be necessary to exclude the app from any battery saver feature on the system (e.g. on the Xiaomi MIUI8).
81 34 Tobias Brunner
82 27 Tobias Brunner
 * Apps that create a screen overlay, such as _Twilight_ or _Night Mode_, might interfere with the dialog to grant the app permission to create a VPN connection (unable to tap _OK/Grant_). If that's the case, temporarily disable any such app or, if possible, whitelist/exclude the _VPNDialogs_ system app from this feature.
83 22 Tobias Brunner
84 17 Tobias Brunner
 * *Note:* There are some serious issues on Android 4.4 before 4.4.3 (see #462)
85 21 Tobias Brunner
86 4 Tobias Brunner
 * If you have problems with the app, find bugs or have feature requests you may open a new "issue report":https://wiki.strongswan.org/projects/strongswan/issues (please use the search function first to avoid duplicates). You may also send us the log file via email directly from within the app.

h2. Changelog
95 42 Tobias Brunner
96 42 Tobias Brunner
h3. 2.0.0 (2018-06 beta)
97 42 Tobias Brunner
98 42 Tobias Brunner
* Supports the Always-on VPN feature on Android 7+ (#2179)
99 42 Tobias Brunner
** Android 8 only starts the VPN service after the user has unlocked the device after a reboot
100 42 Tobias Brunner
** Android 7 immediately starts the VPN service after booting, but that means the app has no access to the KeyChain yet (if certificates are used), so no VPN connection can be established until the user unlocks the device
101 45 Tobias Brunner
** If password authentication is used and the password is not stored in the profile, the connection is aborted and the user has to manually retry connecting to enter the password
102 45 Tobias Brunner
** The "Block connections without VPN" system option on Android 8+ blocks all traffic not sent via VPN without considering any subnets/apps that are excluded from a VPN (i.e. that feature is not compatible with split-tunneling)
103 42 Tobias Brunner
* Adds a Quick Settings tile on Android 7+ to quickly initiate/terminate the VPN connection (#2398)
104 42 Tobias Brunner
** Similar to the Always-on feature, Android 8 doesn't enable the Quick Settings tile until the user unlocked the device after a reboot
105 42 Tobias Brunner
** Disconnecting via tile from the lock screen requires the user to unlock the device, connecting is possible without (unless a password has to be entered)
106 42 Tobias Brunner
* The new settings activity allows specifying a default VPN profile used for the two features above (the default is to initiate the most recently used profile)
107 42 Tobias Brunner
* The app automatically tries to reconnect the VPN profile if fatal errors occur (e.g. authentication failures). The retries are delayed by an exponential backoff, which is currently capped at 2 minutes
108 42 Tobias Brunner
** The status screen in the main activity as well as the notification show a countdown until the next automatic retry, manually retrying is possible from both locations
109 42 Tobias Brunner
* On Android 5+ a dummy VPN interface is installed while connecting to a VPN profile, or recovering from errors, to block unencrypted traffic, while taking excluded subnets/apps configured in the profile into account
110 42 Tobias Brunner
** Note that this VPN interface is removed when the VPN is disconnected
111 45 Tobias Brunner
* Errors are not shown in a modal dialog anymore in the main activity, but in a banner directly above the status information (with buttons to view the log and retry connecting)
112 42 Tobias Brunner
* Uses a separate activity to initiate/terminate/retry VPN profiles, which avoids having to bring the main Activity to the foreground for these actions
113 42 Tobias Brunner
* Adds options to disable OCSP/CRL fetching (e.g. if it's known the server is not available, or if CRLs are too large)
114 45 Tobias Brunner
* Adds an option to enable strict revocation checking via OCSP/CRL. If enabled, the authentication will fail if the revocation status of the server certificate is unknown (e.g. because no valid CRL is available)
115 45 Tobias Brunner
* Fetching OCSP/CRL can now be aborted immediately (e.g. to cancel connecting if an OCSP server is not reachable)
116 42 Tobias Brunner
* Basic support for EAP-TTLS/EAP-PEAP has been added (#2392)
117 42 Tobias Brunner
** The AAA ID is currently not configurable and there is no separate AAA (CA) certificate configurable
118 42 Tobias Brunner
* Adds an option to use PSS encoding for RSA signatures instead of the classic PKCS#1 encoding (#2367)
119 42 Tobias Brunner
* The explicit ESP proposals for the deprecated Suite B have been removed
120 1 Tobias Brunner
* Adds more clear error messages if permission for VPNs can't be acquired (e.g. because another app has the Always-on VPN feature enabled)
121 47 Tobias Brunner
* The date/time/thread is shown in the log view if enough space is available (e.g. on tablets or even in landscape orientation on phones)
122 47 Tobias Brunner
* Removes the MIME-type filter when importing trusted certificates, allowing the import of certificates even if they don't have an X.509 related MIME-type set
123 44 Tobias Brunner
* All VPN profiles now have a random UUID assigned (its value may be copied from the profile editor e.g. to initiate/terminate a VPN profile via explicit Intent)
124 30 Tobias Brunner
125 40 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.9.6 (2018-02-08)
126 40 Tobias Brunner
127 40 Tobias Brunner
* Always sends the client certificate (if applicable) instead of only after receiving a certificate request (allows servers that accept certificates from lots of CAs to avoid sending certificate requests)
128 40 Tobias Brunner
129 38 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.9.5 (2017-11-17)
130 38 Tobias Brunner
131 38 Tobias Brunner
* Makes the IKE and/or ESP algorithms configurable
132 39 Tobias Brunner
* Removes _modp1024_ from the default IKEv2 proposal. If the server only allows this DH group, a custom IKE proposal has to be configured in the VPN profile
133 38 Tobias Brunner
134 35 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.9.4 (2017-09-18)
135 35 Tobias Brunner
136 35 Tobias Brunner
* Adds support for delta CRLs
137 35 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes issues with fragmented IP packets ("gh#80":https://github.com/strongswan/strongswan/pull/80)
138 35 Tobias Brunner
* Ensures expires are triggered for the correct IPsec SA (#2399)
139 35 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes an issue with multicast addresses when using split tunneling on older Android releases (#2420)
140 35 Tobias Brunner
* Does not consider a DH group mismatch as failure anymore as responder of a CHILD_SA rekeying (commit:e7276f78aa)
141 35 Tobias Brunner
142 33 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.9.3 (2017-09-04)
143 33 Tobias Brunner
144 33 Tobias Brunner
* Adds support to verify server certificates via OCSP(Online Certificate Status Protocol)
145 33 Tobias Brunner
* Caches CRLs in the app directory (#2405)
146 33 Tobias Brunner
* The CRL cache may be cleared via main menu
147 33 Tobias Brunner
* Adds a button to reconnect the VPN profile to the "currently connected" dialog
148 33 Tobias Brunner
* Don't apply/configure app selection on Android < 5 (the API is not supported there)
149 33 Tobias Brunner
* Initiator SPIs are reset when retrying while reconnecting, which might avoid issues with @INVALID_KE_PAYLOAD@ notifies
150 33 Tobias Brunner
* Catches some random exceptions (as seen in Play Console)
151 33 Tobias Brunner
152 32 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.9.2 (2017-07-04)
153 32 Tobias Brunner
154 32 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes a crash on Android <= 5
155 32 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes database update when updating from app versions < 1.8.0
156 32 Tobias Brunner
157 31 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.9.1 (2017-07-03)
158 31 Tobias Brunner
159 31 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes a crash with pre-existing profiles
160 31 Tobias Brunner
161 30 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.9.0 (2017-07-03)
162 30 Tobias Brunner
163 30 Tobias Brunner
* Adds support for split-tunneling on the client (only route specific traffic via VPN and/or exclude specific traffic from the VPN)
164 30 Tobias Brunner
* Adds support for per-app VPN (either allow only specific apps to use the VPN or exclude certain apps from using it)
165 30 Tobias Brunner
* Sending of certificate requests may be disabled (while this allows reducing the size of the IKE_AUTH message, e.g. if fragmentation is not supported, it only works if the server also sends its certificate if it didn't receive any certificate requests)
166 30 Tobias Brunner
* NAT-T keepalive interval is now configurable (#2365)
167 30 Tobias Brunner
* [[AndroidVPNClientProfiles|VPN profiles]] may be imported via SAF(Storage Access Framework) and allow the configuration of the new settings
168 30 Tobias Brunner
* CRLs are now fetched with a simple Android-specific HTTP/S fetcher
169 30 Tobias Brunner
* Adds a disconnect button in the permanent notification (#2309)
170 30 Tobias Brunner
* The log view should now be more efficient (#2148)
171 30 Tobias Brunner

177 29 Tobias Brunner
178 28 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.8.1 (2017-02-07)
179 28 Tobias Brunner
180 28 Tobias Brunner

181 28 Tobias Brunner
182 26 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.8.0 (2017-01-20)
183 26 Tobias Brunner
184 26 Tobias Brunner
* Adds support to [[AndroidVPNClientProfiles|import VPN profiles]] from JSON-encoded files
185 19 Tobias Brunner
186 25 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.7.2 (2016-12-10)
187 25 Tobias Brunner
188 25 Tobias Brunner
* Re-adds support for the ECC Brainpool DH groups (BoringSSL doesn't provide these)
189 25 Tobias Brunner
190 24 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.7.1 (2016-12-09)
191 1 Tobias Brunner
192 25 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes a crash (regarding libtpmtss.so) on older Android systems
193 24 Tobias Brunner
194 23 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.7.0 (2016-12-08)
195 23 Tobias Brunner
196 23 Tobias Brunner
* Adds a permanent notification while connected (or connecting) that shows the current status and which allows running the VpnService instance as foreground service. This in turn should prevent Android from terminating it when low on memory.
197 23 Tobias Brunner
* Supports the ChaCha20/Poly1305 AEAD and Curve25519 DH algorithms
198 23 Tobias Brunner
* Properly validates entered server port and MTU values in the GUI
199 23 Tobias Brunner
* Logs the installed DNS servers
200 23 Tobias Brunner
* Uses BoringSSL instead of OpenSSL
201 23 Tobias Brunner
* Based on strongSwan version:5.5.1
202 19 Tobias Brunner
203 1 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.6.2 (2016-05-06)
204 20 Tobias Brunner
205 25 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes a crash when importing CA/server certificates via SAF(Storage Access Framework)
206 18 Tobias Brunner
207 18 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.6.1 (2016-05-04)
208 18 Tobias Brunner
209 18 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes an interoperability issue with Windows Server. version:5.4.0 changed the order of the algorithms in the default IKE proposal.  Algorithms that provide a security of less than 128-bit were moved to the end of the list. Now Windows Server 2012 R2 (in its default configuration at least) only supports _modp1024_. The problem is that Microsoft's IKEv2 implementation only seems to consider the first fifteen algorithms of a specific transform type in the proposal. Because strongSwan supports [[IKEv2CipherSuites#Diffie-Hellman-Groups|quite a lot of DH groups]] and due to the reordering _modp1024_ was now at position 17 in the proposal, which meant Microsoft Server rejected the IKE_SA_INIT message with a NO_PROPOSAL_CHOSEN error.  This has been fixed by removing some of the weaker and rarely used DH groups from the default proposal (commit:fae18fd201).
210 18 Tobias Brunner
* Also corrects the label for the password field in the login dialog
211 16 Tobias Brunner
212 16 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.6.0 (2016-05-02)
213 16 Tobias Brunner
214 16 Tobias Brunner
* Based on version:5.4.0, which e.g. adds support for IKEv2 redirection
215 16 Tobias Brunner
* Configuration of the server identity. If it is set the identity is sent as IDr during authentication and must match the server's identity exactly (i.e. it disables loose identity matching against all subjectAltNames, see #1268)
216 16 Tobias Brunner
* Selection of the client identity if certificate authentication is used (see #1403)
217 16 Tobias Brunner
* GUI changes:
218 16 Tobias Brunner
** Removed the progress dialogs during dis-/connecting
219 16 Tobias Brunner
** Redesign of the profile editor (reordered, floating labels, helper texts, "gateway"->"server")
220 16 Tobias Brunner
** Tabs in CA certificate manager have been updated (sliding tabs with ViewPager)
221 16 Tobias Brunner
** Switched to the AppCompat theme (Material-like)
222 6 Tobias Brunner
* Increases the NAT-T keepalive interval to 45s (#1326), no attempt to send keepalives is made anymore if there is no connectivity
223 6 Tobias Brunner
* Fixed the font in the log view on Android 5+
224 6 Tobias Brunner
* Native 64-bit build
225 6 Tobias Brunner
226 6 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.5.0 (2015-07-28)
227 6 Tobias Brunner
228 6 Tobias Brunner
* Based on version:5.3.2
229 6 Tobias Brunner
* Roaming between networks on Android 5 and newer has been fixed (#865)
230 6 Tobias Brunner
* Adds new advanced profile settings:
231 6 Tobias Brunner
** A custom MTU can be specified (currently between 1280 and 1500)
232 6 Tobias Brunner
** The server port can be changed (default is 500, with a switch to 4500 - there is no switch if a custom port is set), #847
233 6 Tobias Brunner
** Split tunneling can be disabled by blocking all traffic that is not destined for the VPN
234 1 Tobias Brunner
*** Only on Android 5 and newer will split tunneling fully work if only one address family is tunneled via VPN (#782)
235 1 Tobias Brunner
* Sets the preferred language for remediation instructions to the system language
236 6 Tobias Brunner
* EAP-TNC does not require a client certificate anymore
237 5 Tobias Brunner
* Fixes a linker issue on Android M
238 5 Tobias Brunner
239 5 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.4.6 (2015-06-08)
240 5 Tobias Brunner
241 2 Tobias Brunner
* Fix for "CVE-2015-4171":https://www.strongswan.org/blog/2015/06/08/strongswan-vulnerability-(cve-2015-4171).html.
242 2 Tobias Brunner
243 2 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.4.5 (2014-11-06)
244 8 Tobias Brunner
245 2 Tobias Brunner
* Based on version:5.2.1 including improved MOBIKE handling and support for IKEv2 fragmentation
246 21 Tobias Brunner
* Enables optional PFS(Perfect Forward Secrecy) for IPsec SAs.  Proposed are cipher suites with and without DH groups, so it's up to the VPN server whether PFS is used or not.
247 8 Tobias Brunner
* Adds basic support for EAP-TLS. Limitations are:
248 21 Tobias Brunner
** EAP-only authentication is not allowed because the AAA identity is not configurable. So to prevent anyone with a valid certificate from impersonating the AAA server and thus the VPN server, the server is authenticated with a certificate (like we do with other authentication methods)
249 21 Tobias Brunner
** It's currently not possible to select a specific CA certificate to authenticate the AAA server certificate, so it either must be issued by the same CA as that of the VPN server or automatic CA certificate selection must be enabled in the VPN profile
250 2 Tobias Brunner
251 2 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.4.0 (2014-07-22)
252 2 Tobias Brunner
253 2 Tobias Brunner
* Adds the ability to import CA and server certificates directly into the app. On Android 4.4+ the "SAF(Storage Access Framework)":https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/providers/document-provider.html is used to allow users to browse for certificate files (if the MIME-type is not set properly the advanced view has to be used to see all files). On older systems the files may be opened from third-party file managers
254 2 Tobias Brunner
* The GUI indicates if the connection is being reestablished
255 2 Tobias Brunner
* A DNS proxy resolves the VPN server's hostname while reestablishing (plaintext is blocked otherwise)
256 2 Tobias Brunner
* Supports ECDSA private keys on recent Android systems (tested on Android 4.4.4)
257 2 Tobias Brunner
258 2 Tobias Brunner
h3. 1.3.4 (2014-04-25)
259 2 Tobias Brunner
260 2 Tobias Brunner
