What is a Wi-Fi Certificate?

A Wi-Fi Certificate protects the registration process and encrypts log-in credentials when connecting to public Wi-Fi, ultimately providing secure network access and increasing trust in public hotspots and sign-up services.

  • Authenticates sign-up service providers
  • Encrypts user data during the sign-up process and communication between a mobile device and OSU server
  • Ensures that a user is communicating with the intended
    service provider

What is Passpoint certification?

This is a program governed by the Wi-Fi Alliance®. The standards were designed to streamline the process of creating new user accounts, as well as make finding and connecting to the right service provider simple and secure.

How Wi-Fi Certificates Work

To get a Wi-Fi certificate, a service provider must apply for one from a Wi-Fi Alliance-certified certificate provider, like DigiCert. The service provider must provide documentation to prove their identity and that they are a legitimate Wi-Fi provider.
Once the validation process is complete, the service provider can receive the certificate. The service provider then installs the certificate on an OSU server and it is used during the online sign-up process between the service provider and an end-user.

Why Choose DigiCert for Wi-Fi Certificates?

DigiCert is an approved Wi-Fi Alliance Certificate Authority vendor authorized to sell WiFi certificates for release 2 of the Passpoint program.

Wi-Fi Certificates include a logo and organization name for the service provider, communicating authenticity and a safe connection for the end user.

To receive a Wi-Fi Certificate, service providers must go through a rigorous validation process to prove they are a legitimate and trusted provider.

Once an end-user makes a connection with an OSU server, their interactions with that server are encrypted during the sign-up process—including their sensitive information.

Our Wi-Fi Certificates work with all Passpoint devices, so you don’t have worry about any additional hassle.

As the only publicly trusted CA who offers Wi-Fi Certificates, we can also offer a complete line of authentication solutions—including SSL, device, and client certificates.
