Eduroam at TSSG


Background information:

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 802.1X

Authentication is via a hierarchical network of Radius servers. A number of NREN’s maintain national Radius proxy servers (known as Federation Level Radius servers, or FLR) which relay authentication requests to and from their local member institutions’ Radius servers. These FLR’s, in turn, relay requests via the European top-level Radius servers.
