Linux configuration

First of all, you have to download the NorthSec 2015 Internal Root CA. It will be necessary for this procedure and also in your web browser for certain parts of the competition.

If you are using a distro that does not have NetworkManager, you can use the configuration of wpasupplicant at the end of this page.

NetworkManager

  1. Connect to the NSEC wireless network
  2. Leave the defaults except for the security parameters :
  3. Manual configuration (wpa_supplicant)

    First of all, install wpasupplicant

    # WPA2-EAP/CCMP using EAP-TLS
    
    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    
    network={
    	ssid="NSEC"
    	key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
    	proto=WPA2
    	pairwise=CCMP
    	group=CCMP
    	eap=TLS
    	ca_cert="ca.crt"
    	private_key="team-XX.p12"
    	private_key_passwd="TEAM-PASSWORD"
    	identity="team-XX"
    }

    Use this configuration with :

    wpa_supplicant -D nl80211 -i wlan0 -c nsec.conf -d
