eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool
EduroamCAT is an eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool corresponding to
website https://cat.eduroam.org

EduroamCAT allows users to configure their device for eduroam wireless
networks. This tool requires a configuration file from your home
institution in order acquire the configuration settings needed. These can
also be discovered by the tool, if the institution has CAT configured. Due
to limitations in the Android OS, the application needs to set up a screen
lock if none is already set. The configuration file is in a standardised
file format and can be obtained from eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool
deployments (such as https://cat.eduroam.org and others). The tool also
provides some status information on the eduroam connection.
