About the IU Secure wireless certificate

The IU Secure root certificate authority has been updated to "USERTrust RSA Certification Authority", issued by InCommon RSA Server CA. If you are prompted to validate or trust this certificate, do so. The certificate is very common, and should be loaded on most devices by default.

This update does not affect computers that connect only to the wired network.

You may need to update or remove out-of-date wireless profiles if you experience authentication issues after this update. For specific details about the update for your operating system, see below.
