I've not yet had the joy of authenticating this way. But I did a search on the terms peap
, and ubuntu
. Among others I found these instructions
for LSU, which I believe is the same type of authentication as your school. See if it is any help.
Of course, you will substitute your certifcate rather than downloading theirs. And you will use the name of your school's access point rather than lsusecure
. And, of course, follow your shcool's instructions for username and password. The rest I would think (hope) would be the same.
I note their certificate name ends in .crt. I am not familiar enough with these certificates to know if that indicates a particular format for the file.
They suggest making the certificate world readable. In case you don't know, you can do that by:
sudo chmod 644 <path>/<filename>
I would guess you would also want this owned by root
. If it is not already:
sudo chown root: <path>/<filename>
(There might something better for owner, but if it is world readable, as LSU recommends, then root
should work and keep normal users from changing it.)
Sorry that I am not more knowledgeable about this. But since nobody else had responded I thought I would give it a shot.. I hope this gets you started. And if you do figure it out, you might want to consider posting an entry on LQ's wiki
about how to do this. My impression from the Internet search is that a lot of schools might be using this. So such a wiki article might be useful to a lot of students.
