Example of use Certs in android

Posted on Actualizado enn

Even this is just an example, it was not easy to build it, there are a lot little information everywhere (stackoverflow)… but this code works, the you can test in a backend server the decrypt part…



button = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button);
button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
    public void onClick(View v) {

        try {
            Open o=new Open();

        } catch (Exception e) {
});//closing the setOnClickListener method</pre>
