Some mobile devices may not require configuration and use the correct settings by default, only prompting you for a username and password.If you have a mobile device that supports WPA2-Enterprise with PEAP authentication, you should configure it with the settings below before you connect. This includes Apple iPhones, iPad and iPod Touches using iPhone 2.0 (or higher) software.
|Key Type/Encryption Cipher:||AES-CCMP (TKIP/MIC is no longer supported)|
Turn on WIFI and select uniwide. Key in the following configuration. Use zID for Identity and zpass for Password.
Some mobile phones and tablets (particularly Samsung Android phones) do not have the required CA certificate installed. These devices would not have the “Use system certificates” option. Additional steps are needed to allow for a secure connection in this case.
What does the CA certificate do?
It validates that the WIFI network your mobile device is connecting to is the real UNSW network.
How to download the certificate?
What does it mean if ‘Do Not Validate’ option was selected? Or if you Trust the network without the correct certificate?
By choosing this option, you are not doing a 3rd party validation that the network you are connecting to is the real UNSW UniWide network. If a network is pretending to be UniWide (say someone creates a hotspot and names it UniWide), and you connect to it, your log in information (and other details) could potentially be at risk.
Unless you are absolutely sure that you are connecting to the UNSW network, we encourage you to download the certificate manually before connecting. This only needs to be done once unless you opt to forget the UNSW network in your device – in which case you need to do the process again.
