IU Secure wireless connections: openSUSE

Note:
The IU Secure authentication server uses USERTrust RSA as its root certificate authority. You need a valid USERTrust RSA root certificate in Privacy-Enhanced Mail (PEM) format to connect to IU Secure. The certificate is commonly installed on most devices by default.

To connect to IU Secure with openSUSE 11:

  1. In the lower right corner, right-click the KNetworkManager globe icon, select New connection, and then click wlan0 (or the interface name of your wireless adapter).
  2. From the list of available wireless networks, choose IU Secure, and then click Next.
  3. In the "Connections" window:
    • For "Security", select WPA Enterprise Under EAP.
    • For "Method", select PEAP.
    • For "Identity" and "Password", enter your IU credentials.
    • For "CA Certificate", browse to the certificate bundle file (/etc/ssl/ca-bundle.pem).
    • Under "Phase 2", for "Method", select MSCHAPV2.
  4. If you want your computer to automatically connect to IU Secure when it's in range, click Next until you see the final screen. Check Autoconnect, and then click Connect & Save.

    Otherwise, click Connect & Save without clicking Next.

After successfully connecting, you should see the KNetworkManager globe icon change to a signal strength meter.
