We’ve had one of our members, Bath Spa University, evaluate geteduroam as a way to get away from the eduroam CAT app. They report that on Android, a profile installed with eduroam CAT works, but one by geteduroam doesn’t. I’ve installed an Android emulator to try and see what they see. What I see is that geteduroam sets the username correctly, it sets the outer username correctly, but it does not set (or maybe I misunderstand Android) the CA certificate as it should? I have looked at their eduroam CAT profile and they have set the CA root in their profile.


See the three screenshots.


Are the ‘eduroam_WPA_*’ certs the ones installed by geteduroam or does geteduroam use the actual certificate names/CNs for that?


Thanks in advance
