Install UmU Eduroam on Raspberry Pi

So at Umeå University there are two free wifis. The first one umu wlan you have to log into everytime you start it and then there is eduroam. It probably took me like a year until I installed it on my laptop. Because it is a bit complicated to install. You have to register at the umu eduroam and then download certificates that you have to install. So for the project with the smart plants and raspberry pi I decided to try it out on raspberry pi. First problem, there are no instructions for linux or raspian. I went to technical support at the university and they did not know how to either.

Anyway, this is how you do it:

Download the certificates. https://www.eduroam.umu.se/

Write down the password somewhere.

Put everything in the folder
 /usr/local/share/ca-certificates

with sudo mv filename /usr/local/share/ca-certificates

Unpack the .pfx file using command

openssl pkcs12 -nocerts -in umu_eduroam_abcd1234.p12 -out userkey.pem

openssl pkcs12 -nocerts -in umuedu.p12 -out mohe0025.pem

To the file (Open with sudo leafpad)
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

you write:

(Instad of * you put your umu id. The .pem file is your umu id. Like mohe0025.pem The privatekeypassword is the password given by eduroam.)

network={ 
 ssid="eduroam"
 key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
 pairwise=CCMP 
 group=CCMP 
 eap=TLS identity="*@ad.umu.se" 
 ca_cert="/usr/local/share/ca-certificates/UMU-CAROOT-CA2.cer" 
 client_cert="/usr/local/share/ca-certificates/*.pem"
 private_key="/usr/local/share/ca-certificates/*.pem"
 private_key_passwd="passwordgivenbyeduroam"
}
wpa_supplicant.conf file on raspberry pi.

Reboot and then try it out.
