Privacy Issue

Apple's mechanism is easy to use, but doesn't conform to the underlying standard and especially is a breach of your online privacy. Every site whose network you use with this configuration will know, that you are at their site at that time and could potentially attribute the network traffic you cause to you. Do not use an iPhone with this configuration if this concerns you.

To resolve this issue, you need to find a way to set an outer/anonymous identity of "anonymous@jacobs-university.de" and an inner identity of YOURCAMPUSNETUSERNAME@jacobs-university.de as shown in our How to configure eduroam on Android guide.

Follow Apple's guide to join a network.

In the step "Join network", select "eduroam".

In the step "verify password", you need to enter your JACOBS account in the format YOURCAMPUSNETUSERNAME@jacobs-university.de as username and your associated password.

Done.

Issue after Update to IOS 11

After updating to IOS11, the device doesn't connect to eduroam anymore.

Solution is to "Ignore" the eduroam network, i.e. remove it from the list of known networks. Before connecting again, shutdown the device.

After starting the device anew, you need connect and configure eduroam agains as described above.
