epse382435dAh yes, the story of universities worldwide.
Uni: come to us to learn about technology and science! We know best!
Also uni: utterly fails at anything with technology
Not worldwide though.
I went to TU Chemnitz and they know their shit.
Eduroam is secured with per-app passwords and an ssl-cert.
Eduroam-APs are separating devices into subnets, thus making port-scanning harder.
User-auth is done with their own openid-server.
Their entire infrastructure, including desktops, is linux based (windows only as VMs).
They even host a gitlab server for the students.
epse382435d@metamourge I mean mine has a private GitHub instance and similar things for eduroam, but nobody gets given the cert for it so you select "do not verify cert". It seems to me that there is a layer of incompetent people who try to do way too much over a layer of very highly competent people with too much to do.
Haxk204258935dAhhh school security even the edu shit. Found lot of ways to get past it tbh. Not to mention that when you call there to get it fixed since im a good person well you get the usual. Thanks for telling us that. We will fix it as soon as possible. Sureeeeeeee you will. 2 years. 10 calls and emails and still exists.
Oh, Maastricht now, too? The university in Giessen, Germany has been offline pretty much entirely for a few weeks now.
