IU Secure wireless connections: Chromebook

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.

  • 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.

To configure your Chromebook to connect to IU Secure:

  1. On the taskbar, next to the clock, click the wireless indicator icon.
  2. In the menu that appears, click in the network row (you will either see a network indicator icon or the words "No network" on that row).
  3. Select IU Secure from the list.
  4. In the "Join Wi-Fi network" dialog box, set up your connection as follows:
    • EAP method: Select PEAP.
    • Phase 2 authentication: Select MSCHAPv2.
    • Server CA certificate: Select Do not check.
    • Identity: Enter your IU username.
    • Password: Enter your IU passphrase.
    • Anonymous identity: Leave this blank.
  5. Click Connect.
