We (DFN, NREN in Germany) are also interested in a self-hosted geteduroam
server. I have set up a test environment for a self-hosted geteduroam server.
It is not easy to set up all the needed stuff and apart of Let's Encrypt you
will need an aai idp too the profile are code signed.

We additionally want to check how difficult is to implement a certificate
management, like it already exists in eduVPN. I don’t know whether you know
eduVPN server portal based on similar techniques and provides a really good
profile/certificate management where user and admins might mange their
profiles/certificates on different devices.
