Enables the KIT IT representatives to set up temporary WLAN accounts for the guests at KIT. These accounts are valid for no more than two months and make guests eligible for internet access in the WLAN and LTA.
WLAN accounts for guests can be set up by IT representatives registered at SCC. Moreover, authorization for the establishment of WLAN guest accounts can be granted by IT representatives of organizational units to further persons via membership in the group <OE>-WLAN-Gast-Admin. The guest account enables access to the LTA (only in german) and the WLAN (SSID KIT) which ensure access to the Internet.
Guests whose home institution participates in eduroam (only in german) do not need a guest account but can authenticate themselves in SSID eduroam by means of the account of their home institution. If you are a guest who needs a guest account, please contact your host.
The establishment of WLAN guest accounts is subject to the observance of the Regulations of Digital Information Processing and Communication – ICT. Guests given a WLAN guest account must be advised of the ICT regulations. For the guests’ convenience, this document is also linked on the WLAN/LTA authentication site.
One account per guest must be set up if there are several guests. An account must not be used by several persons. Assignment of an account to a particular guest must be stored for up to seven days after the account validity has expired.
The guest is responsible for the proper handling of the WLAN guest account in accordance with the ICT regulations. If no one can be assigned to the account, the person who has established the account shall be responsible.
