Fix WPA2-EAP without certificate

Fix /var/syslog error

TLS: Certificate verification failed, error 19 (self signed certificate in certificate chain)

Which means you can’t connect to WPA2-EAP Wifi by:

  1. edit /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/badwifi where badwifi is the SSID
  2. change system-ca-certs=true to
    system-ca-certs=false
    
  3. reboot

Notes

  • setting system-ca-certs=false can subject your laptop to “fake” Wifi AP attacks by disregarding the need for a .cert file when connecting
