Eduroam is the abbreviation of Education Roaming. By using 802.1x security standards over a RADIUS-based infrastructure, it aims to enable the users of eduroam member institutions to use the network without a problem at other educational institutions.
Users of Eduroam member institutions can connect to the network from other eduroam member institutions (Guest Institution), with the username and password they use to connect to the network at their own institution (Home Institution). When the guest sends a request for connection to eduroam, the guest institution's authorization server determines whether the guest is authorized by directing that user to the authentication server of his/her home institution. As all these queries are made in an encrypted tunnel between the servers, the username and password information cannot be viewed outside his/her home server. In this case, the only thing users need to do is to define the eduroam wireless network, which is located in the guest institution, as connecting to the network of their own institution.
