How to create a separate eduroam password to protect your personal data.
Why do I have to create a separate eduroam password?
Should your password ever be compromised due to security vulnerabilities on the devices, a separate eduroam password will only allow access to the wireless LAN and no further logins to JKU IT systems with your data. It is therefore necessary to set a separate eduroam password to activate your eduroam account and use eduroam.
Setting your eduroam Password
- Log in to the JKU Account Self Service Portal at https://account.jku.at by clicking on the "Login" button.
- Please use your JKU account information to login (as for KUSSS, Moodle,...), not the eduroam account credentials.
- Select “Edit Account”.
- Click on "Generate eduroam password" to create a secure password for you and select "Update" to save it. You can view or reset this new password on this page if required.
Setting up eduroam on your devices
For instructions on how to configure eduroam on your devices, see Campus Wi-Fi. Installation using the eduroam CAT ensures that the connection certificate is verified appropriately and that your password remains secure. It is recommended not to trust any other certificates without consulting the Service Desk.
What happens if the password is not set?
In this case, you cannot utilise eduroam. Your eduroam account requires a set eduroam password.
What potential problems could arise and how can they be resolved?
Authentication using the wrong password
After several attempts with an incorrect password, eduroam may suspend your account. This lockout will be removed automatically after 15 minutes, or when you update your eduroam password via account.jku.at. In the event of your eduroam account being locked - due to incorrect configuration on your part or access attempts by third parties - you will receive an email notifying you of the lock.
Further information regarding the WLAN "eduroam" can be found in the section Campus Wireless LAN.
