A quick presentation about Funet WLAN roaming, eduroam in Finland and about Wireless Tampere, which is based on eduroam architecture and technologies. The presentation also contains a short clip from my Terena Networking Conference 2010 presentation about the implementation and the future development of the Finnish Top Level RADIUS roaming server.

Building Funet WLAN Roaming, eduroam Finland and Wireless Tampere

  1. 1. 1 Building Funet WLAN Roaming, eduroam Finland and Wireless Tampere Karri Huhtanen Tampere University of Technology Department of Communications Engineering 17.08.10
  2. 2. eduroam today around the world
  3. 3. History in Finland • Funet WLAN Roaming idea presented first in Autumn 2002 by TUT DCE at Funet Tech. Days • Cooperation with CSC led to working with Terena Mobility from 2003 onwards => first eduroam tests (NL, FI, PT, CR, UK) • Terena Mobility work in TUT DCE – CSC project • Funet WLAN Roaming and eduroam Finland to production service in 2004.
  4. 4. Sami Keski-Kasari, Karri Huhtanen: Julkisten pääsyalueiden välinen verkkovierailu. Funetin tekniset päivät 2002
  5. 5. Work done ● A lot of practical architecture and concept development as well as lobbying, meetings and presentations ● Sami Keski-Kasari, Karri Huhtanen, Jarmo Harju: Applying Radius-based Public Access Roaming in the Finnish University Network (FUNET) (PDF), paper presented in the Terena Networking Conference 2003, Zagreb, Croatia. ● Karri Huhtanen, Heikki Vatiainen, Sami Keski-Kasari, Jarmo Harju: Utilising eduroam architecture in building wireless community networks (PDF), paper presented in the Terena Networking Conference 2008, Brugge/Bruges, Belgium. ● Karri Huhtanen, Heikki Vatiainen, Sami Keski-Kasari, Jarmo Harju: Implementing multi-federation and peer-to-peer roaming on the eduroam federation level (PDF), paper presented in the Terena Networking Conference 2010, Vilnius, Lithuania.
  6. 6. Funet WLAN Roaming / eduroam Finland ● RADIUS based Wi-Fi roaming since 2002, since 2004 in production use ● Together with eduroam(tm) Finland the center for Finnish education and research roaming ● About 50 realms, roughly 88000 roaming authentications / year, over 1000 access points in educational institutions ● Roams with Wireless Tampere and Sparknet community networks, open for other roaming partners and roaming research as a part of ICT SHOK Future Internet Testbed
  7. 7. Wireless Tampere community network ● a cooperative open wireless community network for companies, consumers, education and research institutions ● based on the RADIUS based eduroam(tm) technology for roaming ● 58 realms, 44220 roaming authentications/year (2009), all major cities and education institutions at Tampere region, roughly 900 access points (most of them in public places) ● participates already in Funet WLAN roaming, interested to roam with also other municipal, community and commercial Wi-Fi networks
  8. 8. 8 Implementing multi-federation and peer-to-peer roaming on the eduroam federation level Karri Huhtanen Tampere University of Technology Department of Communications Engineering 17.08.10
  9. 9. 9 Background Funet WLAN Roaming eduroam future federations and subsets? 17.08.10
  10. 10. 10 Future directions • Encouraging organisations to adopt RadSec => do not even have to run Radiator, there exists open source proxy solution radsecproxy from UNINETT • Able and willing to test DNS based discovery or RadSec in general but in search for partners • Would really like to see DNS based peer-to-peer roaming replacing hierarchical model and inter- federation roaming between commercial and academic worlds 17.08.10
