Information about eduroam project
eduroam (edu-cation roam-ing) is a worldwide system of wireless network access intended for academic and scientific society. As a result of Warsaw University participation in eduroam project our students and employees are able to use Internet access while visiting many academic and scientific institutions across the world without changing their devices' configuration.
One ot the main eduroam system assumptions it to provide society members with high level of network security. Communication between users' devices and access points is conducted with strong cryptography making it impossible to eavesdrop data.
Despite being in a foreign institution eduroam users connect to Internet network with help of their home institution network systems. It is possible thanks to the 802.1X. authentication system. It does not mean that user is anonymous while being away - thanks to very strict project policy every data related to network connection and access are always recorded.
