[strongSwan-dev] Importing conf files into the Android app

Here is a simplified description.
- Our app contacts our configuration manager out-of-band.  Https, perhaps.
- Authentication occurs.
- Credentials and parameters are downloaded by our app.
- Credentials and parameters are pushed into the VPN app as connection-n by our app.
- Our app launches VPN connection-n.

The credentials and parameters may change often, perhaps every authentication attempt.
There may be multiple connections to be managed.
We are targeting Android 4.0.3 or later.

I have this working with OpenVPN.  I think can make something work with Cisco AnyConnect, but there are issues on the server that colleagues are investigating.  Progress is slow.

Hi Mark,

> Too bad.  We would really like to automate configuration of the Android app.

The config in the App is currently very simple, so there is not much to
automate (most things are user specific anyway).  But perhaps you could
explain a bit more detailed what you intend to do.
