It’s that time again: eduroam gets a new certificate on Feb. 3, and your phone might get a prompt

If you use eduroam, the UC Davis wireless network, this might affect you.

The campus will install a new electronic security certificate on eduroam at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3. This means you might see a prompt on your phone or other wireless device sometime after then, asking you to accept the new certificate.

The certificate tells your device it’s connecting to eduroam, and you should accept the certificate. (If you have doubts, contact your department tech support or the IT Express Service Desk). Some devices will accept the new certificate automatically.

Your experience will vary depending on your device, model, and operating system. This campus reference article has more information.

Certificates expire periodically, and this is the sixth certificate update to eduroam at UC Davis since fall 2012. Information and Educational Technology now schedules these updates every February.

If you have problems or questions, please contact IT Express at 530-754-HELP (4357).
