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.


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

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..


Quick guide (for all except Android):

  1. Connect to the Internet, e.g. with @BayernWLAN or a mobile data connection.
  2. Download the correct installer / profile for your operating system.
  3. Start the installer (please note the information for Linux and Android) respectively open the profile.
  4. 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
  5. Register your device at https://register.uni-regensburg.de

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


Known problems

  • Android: Please remove any existing eduroam configurations in the wifi settings of your device before (re)installing the profile.
  • Android since version 10, Windows Phone, Windows 10 and iOS since Version 14: Those operating systems change the used Wifi hardware address randomly by default.
    Please make sure to always use the real hardware address of the device by deactivating this feature for Wi-Fi when at UR or UKR (BEFORE you do the device registration).
  • Android (since version 11 on Samsung devices): The Profile at cat.eduroam.org is possibly not working for those devices (observed with S-Series devices)). Please use the profile for Samsung devices from this page and open it with the geteduroam app.

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.
For an overview of the systems allowed at the UR, see the document Systems Approved for Operation at the UR (PDF, german only).
