How to deploy eduVPN

Currently the NRENs from Uganda, Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands have deployed an eduVPN server. At TNC18 we got questions about how to deploy eduVPN. The steps are:
1 Deploy and install a VM in order to get your own eduVPN instance. note: Network equipment/VM platform allows access to at the very least tcp/80, tcp/443, udp/1194 and tcp/1194 for basic functionality.
2 connect the eduVPN instance to your SAML federation
3 contact us in order to ‘get in the eduVPN app’


TNC18 workshop
