UC Davis wireless users will need to accept new certificate March 26

UPDATE 3/26: The cert update has been postponed until another day. Here's the status page update.

This task might sound familiar, because you've almost certainly done it before.

UC Davis faculty, students and staff who use the campus wireless network, eduroam, might get prompted to accept a new electronic security certificate the first time they use their smartphone or other mobile device on the network after 8 a.m. Monday, March 26.

The updated certificate, which Information and Educational Technology will install at that time, tells your device that it’s connecting to eduroam. Certificates expire periodically, and therefore need to be replaced.

Your device might accept the new certificate automatically, or you might need to manually accept the certificate after you see a prompt on your screen. The experience will vary, depending on your device, model, and operating system.

Previous certificate updates at UC Davis in the past few years have occurred in June 2015, September 2014, and October 2012.
