  • Please ensure host names are fully qualified domain. Names (FQDN) that resolves to internet accessible IPs i.e. not RFC1918 (10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12, 192.168.0.0/16).
  • IP addresses must be unique to a particular RADIUS server. i.e. 1-to-1 NAT is fine but 1-to-many isn't.
  • IP addresses should have a reverse DNS entry that resolves to the hostname specified.
  • See the tech spec for details on what functionality the service should provide.
Your RADIUS solution

Which will your RADIUS solution have configured and enabled?

Most RADIUS servers are able to set this extra attribute which helps remote sites identify the source of requests for audit purposes.
Chargeable User Identity can be set to a unique hash which helps remote sites report problem users without knowing their identity.

Load balancing

If your servers form a cluster (eg Cisco ISE or Aruba Clearpass) then please indicate below if they require a single secret shared between them, or individual shared secrets per server. There will still be seperate shared secret(s) for each of the Jisc NRPS.

System administrator contact

Privacy Notice

The govroam service does not gather any personal information from end users, but various processes behind the scenes require us to be able to contact the administrators in subscribing organisations.

Their information is needed for us to set up your organisation's govroam subscription and to access the service. We'll use it, as described in our standard privacy notice, to provide the service you've requested, as well as to identify problems or ways to make the service better.

The contact information for the person or team providing B2B govroam technical support specifically will also be shared with the govroam administrators community when they access the govroam wiki, for the purpose of issue resolution between subscribing organisations. We'll keep the information until we are told that you no longer wish to subscribe, at which point it will be removed from both the service and wiki systems.
