Eduroam: Switch profile (iPhone / iPod / iPad)

The root certificate "Deutsche Telekom Root CA2" expires on the 7th of July 2019. This root certificate was used by the DFN to enroll the certificates of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg.

The recommended configuration for eduroam includes the certificate check against this expiring root certificate. 

All clients are configured with the obsolete configuration will not be able to connect to eduroam after the 7th of Juli 2019. We provide new configuration files for the eduroamCAT since March 2019. 

You are advised to update your configuration as soon as possible, but by the 7th of July 2019 the latest. 

We strongly recommend to use the eduroamCAT app. If you still want to configure your profile manually you can find information about the process here. 

Switch of profile for network accesses set up with eduroamCAT 

With an already configured eduroam access, you have to first remove this current profile from your device. Afterwards, the device must be restarted before the new profile can be installed. The restart is unfortunately necessary for iOS, because the old profile is kept in the memory of your device, even with a new one of the same name being installed. 

iOS: Einstellungen öffnenOpen the Settings of your device and select the menu item General.



 

iOS: Einstellungen, Profile, eduroamFind the network eduroam from the list of available profiles.

Switch of profile for previously manually configured network accesses

If you have not previously used eduroamCAT and configured the Wifi connection manually, we recommend switching to the configuration files of eduroamCAT. With the generated .mobile configuration files, the access to the eduroam network can be configured quickly and, above all, securely.
