What is eduroam

eduroam which stands for Education Roaming, is a RADIUS-based infrastructure that uses 802.1X security technology to allow for inter-institutional roaming.

Being part of eduroam allows users visiting another institution connected to eduroam to log on to the WLAN using the same credentials(username and password) the user would use if he were at his home institution. Depending on local policies at the visited institutions, eduroam participants may also have additional resources at their disposal. All this with a minimum administrative overhead.

Map of eduroam members

Although eduroam started up in Europe, it gathered quite soon consensus also outside Europe.

eduroam has evolved into a federation of federations (con-federation), where the single federations are run at national level and they all connect to a region.

To date there are two confederations: the European eduroam confederation and the Asia-Pacific (APAN) eduroam confederation.
