JoinNow! - Configure Eduroam securely

It must also be noted that older Android versions cannot be safely configured due to the limitations of the operating system. There is an urgent recommendation to no longer use such devices. We also saw Android devices in users that did not behave consistently. It was not possible to conclusively clarify whether modifications of the operating system by the device manufacturer led to this behavior.

IT administrators from institutes and facilities can use the SecureW2 Enterprise Client via automated software distribution (e.g. SCCM) install on devices. For this purpose, appropriate packages must be created and these must be distributed to the end devices. If this is to be used at your facility, please contact us at [email protected] Centrally managed laptops in the administration are provided with an updated version by the GITZ.

Certificates only offer security if they are checked by the respective device when the connection is established. The analogy to the lock symbol in the address bar of the browser when visiting secured websites may be helpful here, since in this example too, security is only achieved through mechanisms in the browser. In contrast to the lock symbol in the browser, all operating systems lack a good visualization with which a user can recognize a secure WLAN configuration.

Knowing the basic configuration parameters does not help the user, in particular the correct configuration of the certificates is either not possible or not intuitively possible for the user, which is why we explicitly advise against manual configuration. We provide the use of the centrally provided self-service interface of the SecureW2 JoinNow portal. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]
