The eduroam service aims to facilitate easy and secure Internet access for roaming educational users. The eduroam infrastructure enables visited sites to authenticate a roaming eduroam user against their home authentication server prior to granting/denying the user access to the local wireless LAN service. The result is a consistent and seamless WLAN service for roaming eduroam users with minimal management overhead at participating sites.

For further information, including details on how your site and your users may participate in eduroam, please visit http://www.eduroam.ie or contact noc@heanet.ie
