The following permissions are needed:
1. Location - Access Approximate Location (network-based)
eduroam configuration details vary by participating organisation.
The application needs to know which organisation a user belongs to to install the correct ones. One of the means to find out is by comparing the device location to the location of participating organisations, and then suggesting nearby organisations on top of a list.
2. Photos/Media/Files - Read the Contents of your SD Card
The application reads the user selected config file from external storage.
3. Photos/Media/Files - Modify or Delete the Contents of your SD Card
The application saves the organisation that was selected by the user and the associated configuration details. It also retrieves those from file storage on startup.
4. Other - Connect and Disconnect from Wi-Fi
It is the core purpose of the application to do just that.
5. Other - Have Full Network Access
The application performs basic diagnosis on the connection while it is being established. For example, it finds out whether or not a IP address has been handed out after a successful authentication. Also, in the course of organisation discovery, it needs to retrieve the list of organisations and the pertinent configuration details from a server on the internet.
If no connection is established, this can have various causes:
- If there is no access point with the eduroam network nearby, the location must be changed.
