IU Secure wireless connections: Windows Phone 8.1, 8, and 7

IU Secure is the wireless network for students, faculty, and staff to access on all campuses. IU Secure uses WPA2 Enterprise (Wi-Fi Protected Access) for authentication and encryption.

Important:
  • If you can't connect to the IU Secure wireless network, make sure your IU username and passphrase are correct when you attempt to log in. UITS testing has revealed that invalid logins are a prime reason people have trouble connecting.
  • When you try to connect to IU Secure for the first time, you may be prompted to accept a new security certificate. Verify that the certificate is issued by "USERTrust RSA Certification Authority", and click OK or Connect. If you continue to experience issues, see About the IU Secure wireless certificate.

    For help, contact your campus Support Center.

Be sure you are in a location receiving a wireless signal when following these instructions. While it won't damage anything to follow these steps in an uncovered area, you won't get feedback from your device to indicate it's configured correctly, so you increase the possibility of making a mistake.
