Use TLS/SSL with our Android library

By seb, in Android, july 25,2022.

Some time ago we added SSL/TLS support to our Android library. This feature allows you to use a secure communication channel between the library and the VirtualHub v2.0 (still in BETA) or the GatewayHub. Using this new feature is quite simple, but requires some tricks if you are using a Self-signed certificate on the VirtualHub.
