It is important for a reliable eduroam AU service that institutions have completed their deployment responsibilities correctly, specifically:
The eduroam AU audit checklist is available in a separate document, and institutions are encouraged to periodically review and conduct desk audits.
AARNet will coordinate with the institution to perform the final audit, as some aspects of eduroam functionality can only be confirmed on the institutional campus.
The steps involved in the final audit process for eduroam-AU institutional on-boarding are:
Institutions may ask AARNet to perform an ad-hoc audit to assist in confirming the health of their eduroam deployment.
AARNet may request to perform an ad-hoc audit’ during institutional operation in eduroam AU.
It is an operational goal of AARNet to ensure that institutions operability remains compliant with policy. If there is any non-compliance observed for example from RADIUS logs, or any report from another institution (or national roaming operator) of an institution’s eduroam national (or global) policy non-compliance, AARNet may request that the institution undertake an ad-hoc audit to gain a complete view of the institution’s compliance rather than just seeking to rectify the specific issue.
The eduroam AU Audit Process is the final stage of on-boarding for institutions.
The institutional eduroam deployment audit plan described below is intended to achieve comprehensive best-practices deployment of eduroam.
The goal of auditing is to ensure operability objectives stated below are achieved, with intent of delivering consistently good user experience, and achieving effective and efficient institutional eduroam administration.
Prior to the audit being undertaken, the institution will have
AARNet will coordinate with institutions the appropriate timing of the final audit.
The time required for AARNet to undertake the final audit will be approximately 1day.
AARNet will conduct the audit based on the published audit checklists.
Institutions are encouraged to perform a self-audit prior to AARNet performing the audit.
Any non-compliance items will be informed to the institution, and the institution requested to resolve those issues and confirm with AARNet when resolved.
AARNet will determine which aspects of the audit process to repeat in the follow-up audit step.
Following successful completion of the final audit, AARNet will update the institutional status in AdminTool to “production”, at which time the institutional data will be provided to the Global Database.
