eduroam is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.
eduroam provides an infrastructure that allows users to authenticate onto a visited network (wireless and/or wired) using their home site credentials, without any local administrative burden or complexities on the user or the local IT staff.
This hands-on course takes participants through how eduroam operates at both a basic technical level, but also at a support level. Hands-on experience in labs is provided, showing how a RADIUS server can be configured for eduroam (both for home and for visited usage), examining the RADIUS proxy traffic and changing the contents of proxied messages.
- Share good practice and learn from others from within academic networking
- Tailored course specifically designed for Janet Network-connected organisations
- One year of online support following the course
