Technical Information

Institutions that employ 802.1X authentication typically use RADIUS and centralized local user databases to provide user authentication. eduroam takes advantage of these infrastructures to build a hierarchical system of RADIUS servers with the ability to securely transport user credentials. With this system in place, a user from a participating institution can use his/her home credentials at a visited institution and get access to the network.
