Best Practice - Linux/Ubuntu


For Linux/Ubuntu devices we recommend the configuration via EAP-PWD.

Authentication using EAP-PWD is a secure and quickly configured authentication option.

Certificates or other settings are not required:


 

 Setup via EAP-PWD

Icon

Please use eduroam Devicemanager to generate eduroam credentials for every device in use. You will find a tutorial here. You'll need them to authenticate in step 2.4.

Please note that login names generated with the help of eduroam Devicemanager will end with @rwth.edufi.de for members of the RWTH Aachen University and with @fzj.edufi.de for the members of the FZ Jülich.

You can still access the institute WLAN using a login name that ends with @rwth-aachen.de.

Eduroam in KDE will be only visible and able to use if you restart with the GUI.

Step 1: Select WLAN


Click on the network symbol and select the "wireless network" eduroam under the heading.

Step 2: Set up eduroam


Now a configuration window opens in which you can make the following settings:

 

  • EAP Method: PWD
  • Identity and password: generated access data (create eduroam access data)

 

Icon

With the authentication method EAP-PWD no certificate is necessary and also not possible.

After saving the configuration, you can connect to the eduroam network.
