Encrypted WLAN-Access, Configuration for Linux

WLAN-Networks (SSIDs): "tunet" und "eduroam"

Valid Accounts for TU-Members:

  • UserID@tuwien.ac.at
  • UserID@student.tuwien.ac.at

The "eduroam" network can be accessed by members of other organisations as well.

The "tunet" network is also available for guest and conference accounts (UserID@mobil.tuwien.ac.at, UserID@conference.tuwien.ac.at).

Before establishing the connection you should check the certificate for the server your client is connected to.

 

  • On your computer install the package "wpa_supplicant".
  • Check if the certificate "DigiCert_Assured_ID_root_CA.pem" exists on your system. If not, please download: DigiCert Root
  • Generate the configuration file "wpa_supplicant.conf" with the following content:
 network={  
 ssid="eduroam"
 scan_ssid=1
 key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
 eap=PEAP
 ca_cert="/path/to/DigiCert_Assured_ID_root_CA.pem"
 altsubject_match="DNS:odo.kom.tuwien.ac.at;DNS:nog.kom.tuwien.ac.at"
 identity="username"
 password="pass"
 phase1="peaplabel=0"
 phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
}

  • Start the "wpa_supplicant" by:

    root@hostname:/home/username# wpa_supplicant -i ath0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
