IITD campus is equipped with state-of-the-art Wi-Fi based on Wireless Controllers for the entire academic areas/ Guest houses and Hospital. These services are accessible with SSIDs namely IITD_WIFI, IITD_Secure_GUEST and eduroam. A total of ~2000 Access Points (dual-band 802.11a/g/n/ac/ax) are available in Academic Area, Hostels, Hospital and Guest Houses.
We use IEEE 802.1x (WPA2 Enterprise ) based encryption for security on IITD_WIFI, IITD_Secure_GUEST and eduroam. For authentication, we use the EAP method EAP-TTLS with PAP as the inner-tunnel method as well as the EAP method PEAP with MSCHAPv2 as the inner tunnel method. i. IITD_Guests are "Unsecured network" but uses HTTPS authentication based on captive portal technology developed in-house.
The RADIUS servers for EAP-TTLS and EAP-PEAP uses the IITD LDAP, Kerberos systems and/or Windows Active Directory for user authorization and authentication at the back-end. Users can connect to the Wi-Fi network using their LDAP ids and Kerberos passwords. Upon successful authentication, clients are configured using DHCP .
