updated 2016-02-29

IMPORTANT NOTE:
As of December 9 2015 KTH eduroam has a new certificate installed which is issued by DigiCert Certificate Authority. This could affect your login to eduroam in the way that you might have to accept the new certificate - and reenter your KTH username (don't forget @kth.se) and network secret. It is recommended that you (re)configure eduroam in your device by using the configuration tool CAT (se below).

eduroam stands for education roaming and is an international cooperation between universities. It provides researchers, teachers and students easy and secure network access at the home university and when visiting an institution other than their own - with no changes to the computers configuration. You can read more about eduroam here.

NOTE: You will need a special network secret to login to KTH's wireless network. You cannot use the password you have for your ordinary KTH.SE login.
Get your eduroam network secret at: https://login.sys.kth.se/peap.html

Use eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool (CAT) for configuration or reconfiguration of eduroam. The tool installs the CA Root certificate and (re)configures the wireless settings for eduroam. After configuration you will be asked for your KTH username (which must include "@kth.se", i.e user@kth.se) and network secret.

• When you enter your username and network secret be sure not to add any leading or trailing whitespace. Your login to eduroam will fail otherwise.


The CAT tool is available for Windows, MacOS X, Linux, iOS devices (e.g. iPhone, iPad) and Android (4.3 and above)
