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

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.

Enabling your iPhone to use IU Secure

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

Manual configuration

  1. From the main screen, tap Settings, and then tap Wi-Fi.
  2. 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 net-auth-1.noc.iu.edu Client Authentication certificate. Verify that the certificate says "Thawte Primary Root CA" under net-auth-1.noc.iu.edu. 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 device should automatically select the IU Secure network.

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.
