Coming to ResNet . . . Secure Wi-Fi
Last updated: 04/18/2018 15:53:33

Students living in Bonner Hall, Johnson Hall or University Place now have a secure Wi-Fi option available to them — BearNet Secure. Plans are to have secure Wi-Fi available in all residence halls by next fall.

What is BearNet Secure?

BearNet Secure provides students, faculty and staff with a fully-encrypted Wi-Fi connection. 

What is encryption? Why is it important?

Encryption is the process by which digital data is encoded/decoded to prevent unauthorized access. The primary purpose of encryption is to ensure the confidentiality of sensitive, digitally-transmitted data such as passwords and credit card numbers.

On a non-secure (i.e. “open”) Wi-Fi network, transmitted data is only encrypted when you access secure sites. On BearNet Secure, all transmitted data is encrypted.

Who should use BearNet Secure?

We strongly recommend that all students, faculty and staff use BearNet Secure on their devices that support it (i.e. laptops, desktop computers, mobile phones, tablets, etc.).

Note: Bonner Hall, Johnson Hall and University Place have been selected as a test environment for this new-to-KU technology and are currently the only residence halls where BearNet Secure is available.

The ResNet Wi-Fi open network will continue to exist for smart TVs, game consoles, etc.

How do I use BearNet Secure?

The only requirement of BearNet Secure is that your device contain a small, security certificate profile. It only takes a minute or two to install the profile — the steps are listed here:

  1. Go to resnet.kutztown.edu/securewifi
  2. Your device type should be detected. Click JoinNow.
  3. A small SecureW2 installer is downloaded. Open it if it doesn’t open automatically.
  4. You’ll be prompted for your KU username and password.
  5. The profile is automatically configured. When complete, the device will connect to BearNet Secure (or you can manually switch to BearNet Secure).

Once the security certificate profile is installed, your device should prefer BearNet Secure over any open network.
