About IU Secure wireless

IU Secure is the wireless network for students, faculty, staff, and affiliates to access on all Indiana University campuses except Indiana University Fort Wayne (use eduroam at IU Fort Wayne). IU Secure uses WPA2 Enterprise (Wi-Fi Protected Access) for authentication and encryption.

Students who are admitted but not yet enrolled can only open web pages on the IU Secure network. Other internet services (for example, email or chat clients, gaming services, etc.) will not work until you have enrolled status.

To connect to IU Secure, find and click the IU Secure SSID, authenticating with your IU username and passphrase.

  • 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 "InCommon RSA Certification Authority", and click OK or Connect. If you continue to experience issues, see About the IU wireless certificate for eduroam and IU Secure.
  • If your device does not support WPA2 Enterprise, you will be unable to connect it to IU Secure.
  • For help, contact your campus Support Center.

For further details about connecting to IU Secure, see the appropriate instructions for your operating system or device:

An Access Control List (ACL) for students, similar to the one used for the campus border filter, has been placed on the wireless controllers. Web browsing and access to all IU resources is available by default; faculty and staff retain full wireless access and are not limited by the student ACL.

The small number of students who may need access beyond what the ACL allows can request an exception; see Use OnGuard for students who need direct network access to databases and/or remote desktop.
