Eduroam allows users from participating institutions to gain secure access to wireless network access using their standard username (email format)/ password credentials as they do at their home institution for wireless access.
Eduroam is based on a federated authentication model where your username and password are validated at your home institution (identity provider) and access to authorised network services are controlled by the visited institution (service provider). Eduroam is available in other Africa countries like Kenya and South Africa and widely available in Europe, Australia and North America.
Currenntly eduroam has been implemented at the following institutions in Zambia:
- University of Zambia
- Copperbelt University
- Mulungushi University
- Zambia Centre for Accountancy Studies
- Baobab College
- Northern Technical College
