eduroam is a service that allows roaming research and educational users to more easily obtain wireless network access at participating sites. When attaching to the eduroam wireless network at the visited site users will be prompted to authenticate and should provide the credentials that they use at their home site. The user is then authenticated against an authentication server at their home site, and if authentication succeeds the user is granted wireless network access.
Further information on eduroam is available from the national eduroam site for Ireland, which identifies eduroam sites in Ireland, and from the central eduroam service, which identifies eduroam sites worldwide.
