To configure wireless security on Ubuntu, you can follow these steps:

  1. Click on the network icon in the top right corner of the screen and select "Edit Connections".
  2. Select the wireless network you want to configure and click on "Edit".
  3. In the "Wi-Fi Security" tab, select the security type that your wireless network is using. If you are unsure, check with your network administrator or router documentation.
  4. Enter the network security key (also known as passphrase or password) in the "Password" field.
  5. If your wireless network uses WPA or WPA2 encryption, you may also need to select the authentication method (e.g., "PEAP" or "TLS") and enter additional authentication information (e.g., username and password).
  6. Click "Save" to apply the changes.
  7. You can also choose to enable "Connect automatically" to automatically connect to the network when it's available.
  8. Finally, if you are using a public or unsecured wireless network, it's recommended to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to protect your data and privacy.

Note: These steps may vary slightly depending on the version of Ubuntu you are using and the wireless network security settings.
