What will I need to use 802.1x authentication?

You will need to enter your NetID and Patriot Pass Password. Your configuration and credentials are generally stored on your device, though some devices offer the option of requiring the password each time you connect to the network. Be sure to safeguard this information by using a login or unlock mechanism on your device. Some devices have an easy modify option while others require that you “forget” the configuration and start over. Please see your device vendor’s documentation for details.
