Wireless LAN technology is changing the life of researchers everywhere by fulfilling the dream of continuous connectivity. Yet, while WLANs are uniquitous, an institution's WLAN usually requires an user to present his credentials, thus limiting access to authorized members of that institution. Therefore, a European roaming infrastructure is desired.

TERENA's TF Mobility has identified three widely deployed access control mechanisms (802.1X-, VPN-, Web-based). Each solution has its distinct pros and cons, but, with local/regional/national institutions' requirements varying, has been adopted for good reasons. Thus, it is necessary to enable roaming between sites that are running different access control mechanisms.

A number of roaming trials are currently underway across Europe, which strive to accumulate the required critical mass of practical experience. This talk will focus on lessons learned from one of these trials, at Universität Bremen in Germany.



This presentation is part of session "Mobility I" which starts at Wednesday, June 9 @ 11:00
