eduroam – avoid galmstudent AP (updated)

We have noticed that glamstudent authentication portal on the University’s wireless systems has an expired SSL certificate.

We have been advised by LCSS Helpdesk to make use of the new system known as eduroam.

Due to the fact that there is an expired certificate and it is not possible to ensured a secure connection we advise everyone to switch to the new system as soon as possible.

More details can be found at under eduroam.

N.B.: eduroam has a different way of authenticating.

Update(05/09/2012): the certificate has been renewed and glamstudent can still be used. I would say that it is still easier to make use of Eduroam as it is more seamless and does not need you to authenticate every time (unless you change your password).
