eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop.
eduroam is a worldwide federation of RADIUS servers that facilitates network access for roaming academic affiliates. eduroam is built with IEEE 802.1X and RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User Service) network protocols. These established technologies are well understood, easy to manage standards and are often already deployed within the network infrastructure of educational institutions.
