About the IU wireless certificate for eduroam and IU Secure

Overview

The root certificate authority for eduroam and IU Secure is "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.

You may need to update or remove out-of-date wireless profiles if you experience authentication issues. These instructions note specific details about various operating systems.
