      What is eduroam’s core

 eduroam allows roving researchers to log-
in, with their usual “user name/password”, to
wireless networks at participating campuses
   around the world and transparently get
             access to resources.

      This is the mission statement

                This is what we needs to be delivered

                                                    Roaming Center

                                    •   The “FreeRADIUS” implements the RADIUS
                                        protocol and uses the RADIUS-Proxy to
          Firewall                      communication with Roaming Center.
                                    •   The “Firewall” controls the access right to
                                        Roaming Server.
        OpenVPND                    •   The “OpenVPND” builds the secure tunnel
                                        between Roaming Server and Roaming Center.
                                    •   Roaming Center uses the “SNMP” to monitor
RADIUS Server with Proxy                the status of Roaming Server.
 ( FreeRadius, SNMP enabled )

      Eduroam in APAN Region
• Top Level servers
  – Server 1
    • Australia
    • coming on-line soon
  – Server 2
    • Looking for a home.
        Eduroam in APAN Region
• This will be run as a service.
   – (in this region)

• Which means
   –   Security
   –   Education
   –   Monitoring
   –   Granular Control
   –   Policies
   –   Service Levels
   –   IPv6
    What does Security mean?
• Minimum standards
  – 802.1x
  – WPA TKIP on AP’s
  – EAP TTLS Auth

• Why
  – The security level of this
    service is only as strong as
    the weakest site.

• Wavers will be available for
  fixed times.
      What does Security mean?
• Future standards
  –   802.11i
  –   WPA2 AES on AP’s
  –   EAP SAML ?
  –   The next wave of magic

• Integration with
  – Shib
  – A-Select
  – Or Other
   What does Security mean?
• Why not web redirect
  – We don’t share our password with others
    • (Not Secure )

• Why not VPN
  – Which VPN ?
  – ACL / XML lists of how long
    • (1006 sites x 2 VPN x 16 firewall rules = 32192 lines)
    • (not Scalable)
    What does Security mean?
  – Open                all traffic is clear.
  – WEP                 is hacked (all traffic is clear).
  – WPA and TKIP        is in most AP’s now a good
                                 level of security.

  – Secure PAP password exchange
  – Many supplicants are available.

• 802.1x is worth the pain.
What does Education mean?
                         •   Training
                         •   Support
                         •   Debugging
                         •   Site Visits

Skills can be imported
 What does Monitoring mean?

• Servers
  – What’s up?
  – What’s down?
  – What’s the impact?
  – Who to contact?
  (this is only half the story)
 What does Monitoring mean?
• Service
  – Is Auth up?
  – Is Auth down? (where)
  – What’s the impact?
  – Who to contact?
  – Must be end to end.

• I like to know this before the clients
What does Granular Control mean?
• How do we identify.

• How do we suspend access.

• How can a client obtain their
  roaming data.

• This will empower users and
    What does Policies mean?
• Policies support and protect.
  – The service
  – The provider
  – The client

  – The Australian Policy is complete.
     • (Ratification is in its final stages)
        – This work has been completed by
        – James Sankar of AARNet
 What does Service Levels mean?
• As a service
  – We need to define the

  – We need to set response

  – We need to supply a level
    of service to our clients.
        What does IPv6 mean?
• IPv6 is fundamental in this region.
  – All eduroam type services need to work on v6.
     • (not all sites but the service)
  – We will be looking closely at v6 mobility.
  – And also IPsec for secure roaming.
