UMHS-8021X authenticates using a UMHS Level-2 Password. UMHS-8021X is generally for use with MCIT CoreImage machines (those with a TermID label) only, but can also be used by properly-configured laptops and other wireless-capable devices. Since CoreImage devices require a user to authenticate using Level-2 credentials, those users should be able to access the 8021X wireless network.
Not all users in the Medical School have Level-2 credentials, so UMHS-8021X is not available to everyone. For those users who do have a Level-2 password, a CoreImage device is not required to access UMHS-8021X as long as the device supports WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise. The preferred security settings for UMHS-8021X is WPA2 with AES encryption using PEAP.
