Wireless network says validating identity
Since this is generally considered one of the more secure forms wireless authentication can take, you have no reason to be concerned about this type of certificate.The second case is where you may want to question further, but is also likely nothing too concerning.It is trivial (and in some cases entirely free) for an attacker to get a valid certificate from a public CA that can match the hostname of the attacker's own "authentication server." If specific hostnames for the authentication servers are not configured in the EAP supplicant (and they often are not or can't be), then even if the designated CA is configured and is a public CA, the attack just needs to get their certificate from the same public CA. An attacker will have a much more difficult time getting a valid certificate issued from the private CA of the school and if that private CA is the only designated CA in the EAP supplicant, then it makes it very difficult for an attacker to pretend to be the real wireless network and capture credentials for those clients.I recently bought a new Linksys wireless router and after setting it up with basic WEP security, I tried to logon from my laptop and was successful! So then I tried to connect from my desktop computer that has a wireless USB adapter attached to it and I ended up getting this error message: Fabulous! I checked my settings on the wireless router to make sure I didn’t accidentally setup certificate security, but found no such thing.Most often this CA certificate is being used to validate the identity of the RADIUS authentication server to which your EAP supplicant is authenticating.Generally speaking, the EAP supplicant must make a decision on whether it will send your username/password to the authentication server and it is too late to withhold your username/password.Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.After about 30 minutes of fiddling around with various settings, I was able to figure out what the problem was.
When connected to eduroam, there will be some limitations towards the internal VUB network.If you are having problems connecting you might need to remove the wireless network and reconnect.You might need to do this, for example, if you have changed your remote access password or previously set up an eduroam connection.Several reasons: Let me discuss this last point a bit more as it is the key reason to do so (at least in my mind).I apologize for being redundant, but this is the key point.
