Set up Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

To set up BYOD, an administrator does the following:

How to

  1. Specifies corporate email domains in the ETP network configuration. This allows you to specify the email domains of users who are authorized to activate the client. For instructions, see Specify corporate email domains.
    Important: Do not specify domains that are associated with unauthorized users. For example, do not specify a domain for a public service like gmail.com that has addresses of users who are not part of your organization.
  2. Specifies usernames or email addresses of users in the User Lists. If you plan to manually distribute activation codes to users or send users an email invitation that includes the code, you can specify the username or email address of users in ETP. For more information, see Generate activation codes in a CSV file and Email activation codes to users.
    The username or email address that is provided allows ETP to easily identify users in reports. This information is shown in the Device Owner field that’s available in event and activity reports.
  3. Distributes MITM certificates to ETP Client devices. The man-in-the-middle certificate (MITM) for ETP Proxy is required for TLS inspection of web traffic. To use ETP Client with the proxy, you must securely distribute and install the certificate on the user’s device.
    To distribute the certificate to a laptop or computer, see Certificate distribution. To distribute the certificate to a mobile device, see Distribute MITM certificates to ETP mobile devices. To generate a certificate, see Create an Akamai certificate and Create a non-Akamai certificate.
