IU Secure wireless connections: iOS (iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad)

Note: Apple uses the term iPhone to refer to the software and configuration of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Here, iPhone describes all these devices.

If you use an iPhone to connect to the wireless network at Indiana University, use the IU Secure network whenever possible.

Note: To gain full Internet access for your device on the IU Secure network, you must register the device's MAC address. Before registering your MAC address, your device will be able to connect to IU Secure, but will not receive an IP address that allows a successful Internet connection. For more, see At IU, how do I register my computer or other networked device?

If you are connected to the Internet over a cellular or different Wi-Fi network, you may configure your device to use IU Secure with the Get Connected for iOS utility; see How do I use the Get Connected for iOS utility to configure my mobile device for IU network services? Otherwise, refer to the instructions below.

Enabling your iPhone to use IU Secure

Note: Before storing personal information in your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, the University Information Security Office strongly recommends configuring a passcode. See How can I secure my iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch?

  1. From the main screen, tap Settings, and then tap Wi-Fi.

  2. If your Wi-Fi is already set to use IU Wireless, you will need to switch to IU Secure. Under "Choose a Network...", tap IU Secure.

  3. Next to "Username" and "Password", enter your IU Network ID credentials. Tap Join.

  4. You will be prompted to accept the Client Authentication certificate. Verify that the certificate says "thawte Primary Root CA" or "Thawte Premium Server CA" under "". The certificate will be red and labeled "not verified"; this is normal. Tap Accept.

    Once you have accepted the certificate, you will be authenticated to the IU Secure network, and a check will appear next to IU Secure on the "Wi-Fi Networks" screen.

  5. Open Safari to complete the registration process.

After completing these steps, in the future your iPhone should automatically select the IU Secure network. If IU Secure is not available and you use the IU Wireless network, you will need to reselect the IU Secure network when it is available again. This change should not require re-entering your network credentials.
