Security in eduroam

When you connect to a wireless network at a location other than your own institution, your user name and password are sent to your home institution. If you are recognized and approved, it is signalled to the visited institution and you are granted access to the internet.

The communication is encrypted to prevent others from seeing your password. Encryption is done using a so-called server certificate from the server at your institution.
