About trusting the certificate - Android:
Android devices do not allow trusting of self-generated certificates when connecting. Selecting "don't validate" does not mean the transmission is not secure - it means Android can not verify the authenticity of the certificate. Since the certificates are generated on our in-house server, Android devices do not know to inherently trust the certificate used to encrypt the WiFi traffic.
