IU Secure wireless connections: Mac OS X

To configure your Mac OS X device to connect to IU Secure:

  1. From the AirPort menu, select IU Secure.
  2. When prompted, enter your IU Network ID.
  3. When prompted to verify the certificate, click Show Certificate and verify that:
    • The certificate is signed by "Thawte Primary Root CA".
    • The certificate name is net-auth-1.noc.iu.edu.
  4. Check Always trust "net-auth-1.noc.iu.edu" and click Continue.
  5. You should now be connected to the IU Secure SSID; if you are prompted for your credentials again, enter your IU Network ID.
Note:
If you have problems with your initial connection to IU Secure and are using Windows, Mac OS X, or iOS, at IUB and IUPUI, you can connect to the IU StartHere SSID to download the IU Secure Setup Wizard, a tool that will create your wireless profile. The tool is also available via IUware (Windows and Mac OS X and iOS). The tool will not help with signal or stability issues, and in most cases, following the automatic or manual configuration steps for your device should be sufficient. If you continue to have problems, contact your campus Support Center.
