SSL Certificate Change for Northwestern Wireless—April 6

As part of Northwestern’s continuing effort to ensure a secure wireless network environment, Northwestern IT will update the wireless network authentication server certificate on Thursday, April 6 at 6:00 a.m. This is a routine update as the current certificate is due to expire.

Once the update takes effect, users may be prompted to “accept” the new certificate on their devices the first time accessing the Northwestern wireless network to be connected to the network.

Northwestern IT has notified stakeholders within University schools and departments that this update is an expected change to the network infrastructure.
