Eduroam security and reliability

Eduroam is a secure wireless network with strong encryption and reliable authentication. When logging in to Eduroam, your username and password are always verified by your home organization, ie when you use utu.fi your username and password will be sent to the University of Turku servers for verification.

For secure use of Eduroam, you must not give your username and password to servers other than the University of Turku. This can be confirmed by establishing a credit relationship with the University of Turku before using Eduroam.

Important relationship settings for security:

Servers: radius-01.utu.fi, radius-02.utu.fi

Certificate trust chain: DigiCert High Assurance CA-3
  DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA

If you do not predefine the credit relationship with the servers and their certificates, please check with the information above that you will be enrolling in the University of Turku servers when requesting confirmation for the connection.
Eduroam does not use browser authentication, so do not enter your UTUs on any eduroam site.

In Eduroam, wireless traffic is always encrypted, so your surfing is protected from eavesdropping. You can use a VPN connection to encrypt the entire journey from your own computer to the University of Turku. You may also need a VPN connection to access the services of the University of Turku from another university's eduroam network.
