Whitelisting the Wi-Fi networks on the Linux machine restricts the users from accessing all the networks; they can only access the specific Networks that are configured in the Wi-Fi configuration profile. The Wi-Fi Configuration Profile allows the administrator to push wireless network configuration to the enrolled devices.
The purpose of this knowledge article is to provide a guide on how to whitelist Wi-Fi networks on a Linux Machine.
