The features provided by eduroam and any restrictions are determined at the discretion of the institution providing the service. At this time IIASA provides access to the Internet in the same manner as the WiFi " Guest" network.
This service is provided to all IIASA staff who have a current login to the IIASA ICT systems. Additionally, this service is available to all visitors from other participating eduroam institutions.
At IIASA, eduroam access is generally provided 24 x 7 x 365. Planned maintenance times will be publicized in advance if there will be a disruption to the service.
Service and availability times will differ at each participating institution.
ICT will address your requests regarding eduroam during IIASA's office hours.

There is no request process necessary for an eduroam account at IIASA as this is automatically provided to IIASA staff as part of the normal ICT services.
The eduroam network is available in every location where IIASA provides the WiFi network.
When a user logs into eduroam, the request for authentication will go to the home institution of that user, the home institution will verify the user, and the home institution will pass back a confirmation that the user is legitimate. Passwords are not shared between institutions.
The minimum eduroam wireless security is WPA/TKIP, which is not considered secure today. Most institutions will require WPA2/AES, which protects the wireless portion of your connection.
You should use safe computing practices: keep your software up-to-date, run a virus scanner, avoid visiting malicious web sites, and use network protocols that provide end-to-end encryption such as HTTPS and SSH.
Your eduroam login credentials are typically passed in a secure tunnel between your laptop or Wi-Fi device and your home institution.
