CHAIN-REDS and eduroam
CHAIN-REDS is committed to foster and support the deployment of eduroam in the regions addressed by the project. On this purpose, the project has recently produced two brochures on eduroam: the first one targets end-users amd explains the benefits of the use of the service while the second one targets infrastructure administrators and provides some information on the technical requirements for the deployment of the service.
A success story on eduroam deployment can be found in this page (see item no. 5) while more extensive information is available in the published deliverable D5.3 “eduroam and Identity Federations—the World Status Report”.
