eduroam CAT installers and profiles

Back to german version Dieser Text auf deutsch 


We recommend that you use the eduroam CAT installer or our configuration profiles to set up eduroam easily and securely . An eduroam configuration without the installers/profiles may be insecure (see also our notes on security) and could allow the theft of your RZ Account and RZ Password.


Only a small profile ... and so much more security!


 
Here you will find the profiles for eduroam that you need to install in order to securely connect to the wifi network eduroam.


PLEASE NOTE: Since March 11th 2019 11.03.2019 new configuration profiles are required for eduroam.

You will need to configure eduroam on your device once again.
This will install the new root certificate if necessary and a new configuration will be stored on your device that uses both the new root certificate and the new server name.

There is no need for a new device registration, a password change or something similar....

Please remove potentially existing former profiles for eduroam in the wifi settings of your device if having trouble with the installation (Instructions to remove a profile (PDF, german only))) and install the profile suitable for your operating system and device on your smartphone, tablet, notebook etc..


What exactly happened on March 11th 2019 ? Why were the profiles changed ?


Quick guide (for all except Android):

  1. Download the correct installer / profile for your operating system.
  2. Start the installer (please note the information for Linux and Android) respectively open the profile.
  3. The profile / installer requires the user name and password.
    • Username: your eduroam username, which means your RZ Account with a Realm, e.g. vip12345@ur.de, see also here
    • Password: your RZ Password

Attention: No software will be installed, only a wifi profile will be created and, if necessary, the neede root certificates will be installed.


Known problems

  • Android: Please remove any existing eduroam configurations in the wifi settings of your device before (re)installing the profile.
  • When connection to the wifi network "wlansetup.uni-regensburg.de" a message "Sign in to network" appears: Clean the cache of the standard browser of your operating system and try again..

We would like to point out, that according to the regulations for devices in the university's data network it is only allowed to use operating systems and programs that are up to the current security standard and therefore devices for which updates are no longer available must not be operated in the university's data network.
If you use eduroam on the road with an outdated device, do so at your own risk! Please refer to the instructions of the hosting institution whether you may still use such devices.
