Blog Article

eduroam participants running Cisco ACS as their organisational RADIUS proxy servers will be pleased to hear news that ACS 5.4 has been released.

The release notes document all the new features and bug fixes; however, of major interest to eduroam administrators is the feature that it can now add Operator-Name to requests bring sent upstream to the NRPS.

Many thanks to Cisco for their cooperation in listening to the needs of the eduroam community and for providing debug/beta copies to the eduroam(UK) support team.

As part of the continuing programme of improving the eduroam services provided by our members throughout the UK we are contacting organisations on an individual basis where particular issues have been identified. However there are some fairly simple things in the Technical Specification, not involving any RADIUS/802.1X/Wi-Fi aspects, that members can check and fix where necessary to improve their services without needing to be prompted by eduroam(UK).

Audience - eduroam(UK) system administrators and implementors

The eduroam(UK) Technical Specification 1.4 has now been released and is effective as of 14th July 2016.

The update primarly addresses the removal of the requirement to forward RADIUS accounting messages to the NRPS, the expriy of the permissive grace period for TKIP, TLS proxies disallowed and the removal of LDAP and POP from the list of ports/protocols that must be open to visitors. Other changes are essentially general housekeeping and updates.

Although the eduroam(UK) Technical Specification 1.2 has been released for a little while now, with the imminent release of exciting new service features, now might be a good time to review your eduroam service deployment.
