The service Eduroam enables its users safe and simple access to the (wireless) network of their home organisation and roaming in networks of other institutions included in the Eduroam system. Thus, users from an organisation in Ljubljana can have access to the secure Eduroam network in Maribor or Koper (or any other Eduroam network abroad) transparently and free of charge by using the same user name and password as when they use the Eduroam network locally. The network is designed to provide maximum security to the institution as well as to its roaming service users as interception and phishing are prevented. In line with its policy, the institution can also enable its users to use other network sources (e.g. common applications, databases) through the same authentication system. This leads to less bureaucracy when accessing the network and applications as well as increases user mobility, which is becoming of key importance in the international research and education area. The networks are also part of the international roaming system Eduroam. Thus, Slovene users can also roam in networks of education and research institutions abroad.

 To access the Eduroam network, you need:

  • computer or other corresponding wireless device (palmtop, phone);
  • wireless device has to be equipped with the corresponding protocol 802.11g or 802.11b and be supported by the security protocol WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise;
  • to have installed software on computer with support for authentication 802.1x (EAP-TTLS), either Eduroam client or default client within the operation system;
  • user name and password for Eduroam from your home institution.
