Installing Certificates with Android 7.x or Higher

This setup uses Firefox Browser for Android. Please note that Firefox keeps all certificates internally and does not install them on your device. As a result, you must use Firefox to access any certificate-protected MIT sites.

  1. Open the Play Store app and search for "Firefox".

  2. Select Firefox Browser for Android and click Install.

  3. Once installed, open Firefox.

  4. Navigate to the MIT Certificate Page.

  5. Enter your Kerberos username, password, and tap Next.

  6. At this point, you will receive a prompt to Authenticate Duo.  Make your usual choice for Duo Authentication.

  7. Tap the Next button to Generate a Private Key.
  8. Once the installation process is complete, you will be notified that the certificate is installed. Tap OK.

  9. Finally, tap to install the MIT Certificate Authority Certificate.

  10. You should see a prompt asking you to trust the certificate identity.

  11. Check all available boxes that appear and tap OK.

  12. Test your certificate by going to Certificate Test Page.

    Your MIT Root and personal certificates will be installed.
