Prefered wireless Network Authentication type is WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access version 2) Enterprise. and Data Encryption method to use is AES (Advanced Encryption Standard). These protocols provide high security to Wi-Fi connection.

IEEE 802.1X standard is used to establish communication in eduroam. For user authentication EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) Authentication Type is PEAP (Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol) and The Authentication Method or the Phase 2 authentication method is MS-CHAP (MicroSoft Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol). These protocols are used to establish a secure tunnel between radius servers. Authentication information is carried through these tunnels

How Eduroam works?

Eduroam is built with IEEE 802.1X (A standard for port based Network Access Control) and RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service). The hierarchy consists of RADIUS servers at the Eduroam enabled institutions, RADIUS servers run by the National Roaming Operators and RADIUS servers for individual world regions.
