What is Eduroam?
Eduroam (Educational Roaming) is the roaming infrastructure used by the international research and education community that provides the eduroam user experience: open your laptop and be online.
Being part of eduroam allows users to access a wireless network at a visited institution (also connected to eduroam) simply using the same credentials (for instance, username and password) the users would use if they were at their home institution.
IUCC is part of the European EduRoam network. On the Eduroam Europe webpage one can find a clickable map of all of Europe as to where Eduroam exists
How does it work?
Eduroam (Educational Roaming) is an implementation of an infrastructure which facilitates roaming educational users to gain Internet access at other member sites by authenticating against a server hosted at their own institution. Network access at member sites is via a protocol known as 802.1X.
Authentication is via a hierarchical network of Radius servers. A number of NREN's (National Research and Education Networks) maintain national Radius proxy servers that relay authentication requests to and from their local member institutions Radius servers. These national proxy servers, in turn, relay requests via the European top-level Radius servers.
If you are a user that wishes to connect up via Eduroam the best thing to do is reference the Norwegian Uninett user page for detailed instructions.
