What ıs eduroam?

eduroam is an abbreviation for Education Roaming. Using 802.1x security standards through RADIUS-based infrastructure, eduroam aims to seamlessly network users of member institutions in other educational institutions.

Users of eduroam member institutions can connect to the network from another eduroam institution (Guest Institution) with the username password binaries they use to connect to the network in their institutions (Home Institution). When the user submits a link request to the eduroam publication that the guest receives while at the guest institution, the authorization server of the guest institution directs that user to the authorization server of their home institution to determine whether they are authorized. All these queries are made through an encrypted tunnel created between the servers, preventing user name password binaries from being seen outside the user's own home server. In this case, all users should do is define the eduroam wireless network located in the institution where they are a guest as if it were connected to the network of their institution.

eduroam has a federation hierarchy. There are currently two confederations in the world: the European confederation of eduroam and the Asia-Pacific (APAN) eduroam confederation. eduroam member institutions send inquiries to eduroam federations in their own countries, and federations of countries send queries to the confederations to which they are affiliated. Every new federation that participates in the European confederation of eduroam and the APAN confederation to which Turkey is affiliated, and every new institution that joins them, can be recognized by all involved thanks to this hierarchy. You can visit the eduroam page to see the participants in the confederations.
