School Wifi Backdoor


My school wifi blocks all laptops from the school wifi that does not have a certificate, I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and was wondering you could tell me how to get in using a "backdoor" or another possible way (maybe finding a certificate online and using that)
Thanks
Empiracy

The only right answer is to ask responsible IT personnel for a certificate, period. Also this question clearly violates the LQ Rules you agreed to adhere to when you signed up for the account. Please do not do that again.

unSpawn hit it right on the head. Data security in an organization is nothing to be toyed with, and if you think you won't get caught and/or punished, you are SADLY MISTAKEN.

If you're not trying to do anything wrong, just asking one of the IT support folks for help will probably get you exactly what you need. They may only OFFICIALLY support Windows/Mac, but chances are they'd know how to get a certificate generated for your system. Some of them probably already use Linux. And if you know anything about data security, you'd know that any 'certificate' you download from the Internet will NOT work on any random system. Those keys/certificates are generated site by site.
