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

Note: Apple uses the term iPhone to refer to the software and configuration of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Here, iPhone describes all these devices.

If you use an iPhone to connect to the wireless network at Indiana University, use the IU Secure network whenever possible.

Note: To gain full Internet access for your device on the IU network, you need to register the device's MAC address. Before doing so, your device will not receive an IP address that allows a successful Internet connection.

Enabling your iPhone to use IU Secure

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

  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.
