eduroam (education roaming) is the secure worldwide federated network access service developed for the international research and education community.
For the traveler eduroam provides per-user, per-session encrypted network access for visitors from participating institutions, without the need to gain guest credentials on arrival to an eduroam enabled location. The connectivity is instantaneous and the infrastructure is authenticated by the user. Study abroad students can join thousands of eduroam hotspots without any hassle or any data roaming charges.
For the institution eduroam removes the administrative steps required to provision visitors from other educational institutions. Access between networks from R&E institutions is negotiated once during the federation process and for all members of participating institutions. The eduroam network addresses CALEA requirements for visitors from other schools.
eduroam has been tested and verified working on Apple OSX, Microsoft Windows, Linux, Android, and Apple iOS
