About IU Secure wireless

Note:
eduroam is replacing IU Secure as the default wireless network for students, faculty, staff, and affiliates on all IU campuses, and you can use it now. UITS will retire IU Secure in the fall of 2020.

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 while on campus.

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

Important:
  • If you can't connect to the wireless network, make sure that you are using your primary IU email address (for eduroam) or your IU username (for IU Secure). UITS testing has revealed that invalid logins are a prime reason people have trouble connecting. If you suspect that you entered your information incorrectly, try forgetting and re-adding the network.
  • When you try to connect 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.
  • Be sure your device has the latest updates to its wireless software.
  • If your device does not support WPA2 Enterprise, you will be unable to connect.
  • For help, contact your campus Support Center.
