2023-08-07: Change of WiFi Certificate of C.S.dept. and B-IT

Today we did renew the certificate for our wifi infrastructure. At the same time we switched over to the new certification authority hosted by the DFN (GEANT, just like the HRZ did some days before, you may remember the mail about eduroam).

This means that all wifi configurations of your devices that are used to connect to the computer science dept. or the b-it (eduroam-cs and 802.1X) have to be reconfigured to check for the new certificate/and or CA.

You will find the current fingerprints and certificate downloads at the usual place.

The VPN service is *not* affected by these changes.
