HU Berlin eduroam for Android

If the eduroam Android app to setup the wifi crashes for you, try this alternative path.

I tried to setup eduroam for the Humboldt University of Berlin (Humboldt Universität in Berlin) using the app advertised in the manual: geteduroam

Unfortunately, the app crashes on my Android phone. If this is your case as well, proceed as follows:

  1. download the CA certificate hu-ca-2024.crt1
  2. go to your wifi settings and select eduroam to setup this wifi
  3. use TTLS/PAP (I forgot which one)
  4. add anonymous identity:
  5. add username as (use or if your account is with those faculties)
  6. add as CA certificate the file downloaded before
  7. do not verify this certificate
  8. add as domain:

Note that other universities may require other setups.

  1. I have created this certificate file with openssl x509 -inform PEM -outform DER -in CA.pem -out hu-ca-2024.crt using the CA.pem extracted from the eduroam setup for my PC. ↩︎
