Instructions on establishing eduroam connection

All devices, used by our users to connect to eduroam, must be provided with wireless adapters, that support WPA-Enterprise or its successor WPA2-Enterprise security standard. After completing the setup, try connecting to your home organisation’s network first. 

1. CAT – wizard for establishing Eduroam connection

Eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool (CAT) provides an easy setup of eduroam profile for the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10
  • macOS (from Lion or newer)
  • iOS
  • Linux
  • Android

Installer from one organization will not work for users from other organizations, so be sure to use the installer for the organization that assigned you username. If your organization is not on the list, eduroam CAT can not be used. In this case, follow the procedure for manual configuration.

Setup procedure:

TIP: Before installing a new profile, remove any previously installed profiles for connecting to eduroam. Old profiles can in some cases cause malfunctions.

CAT is located on the website https://cat.eduroam.org/. Follow the hyperlink and then click the button eduroam user: download your eduroam installer.

 

Select your home organization in the highlighted window.

 

Afterwards you select a user group (if needed) and operating system for which you will download the installer.

2. Manual configuration

Computers

   


Linux with NetworkManager

 

Mobile devices

Connection to the Eduroam network can only be successfully established if your mobile phone has support for Wi-Fi, WPA(2) security standard, wireless network standard 802.1X and Password Authentication Protocol (PAP).

    

 

 

 

Some mobile phones do not support certificate authentication that eduroam uses to authenticate device within the wireless network. Connecting to a network in such way is not safe as it is vulnerable to password sniffing. The following devices were tested and proved to be untrustworthy:

  • HTC Desire (Android 2.1 – Eclair) – july 2010
  • HTC Legend (Android 2.2 – Froyo) – june 2011
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Android 3.2) – december 2011

Summary of the settings

  • Wireless network standards: 802.11b/g/n
  • Network name (SSID): eduroam
  • Security standard: WPA2 or WPA
  • Authentication method: 802.1X
  • EAP-TTLS
  • Tunnelled authentication protocol: PAP
  • Encryption: AES (WPA2) or TKIP (WPA)
  • IP address assigning method: DHCP
  • Outer identity:
  • User account format:

    • eduroam_client; CA certificate is automatically added when installing the client
    • SecureW2 client; CA certificate is added to the device after the first connection to the Eduroam network
    • some other clients require to add the CA certificate manually before connecting to Eduroam network (in that case use the folowing certificates: Arnes CA 2012)
