It is the service of secure mobility that has been developed for the academic and research community. Open your laptop and you are connected.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This global federated network is available in 74 countries and in over 15,000 campus around the world. Currently in Ecuador, it is available in 64 institutional campus with more than 1,500 access points. The servers and access points are set so that, when attending other institutions that have the EDUROAM service, a "tunnel" is created from the laptop or phone (for authentication) to the institution where the user has an account that is verified before accessing the service. Subsequent browsing will be made through the means of the institution where it is connected.
How to install EDUROAM?
Before using this service for first time, please download the required profile for your institution in https://cat.eduroam.org
When you access to the portal, you should select “Usuario de eduroam: descargue su instalador eduroam”. Immediately you will see a list of institutions, each with their own installation link. It is necessary to select the institution you belong to (can also be searched by name).
Now you will be able to see the installers available for each platform. Choose your device and install it.
The next time you connect to Eduroam, you just have to introduce your credentials to access and enjoy the Eduroam’s world.
Users are always connected in the institutions they have visited with the username and password of their own institutions.
