Weblogon

Background

Weblogon is a common system within the university for wireless online logins – to Weblogon everyone can login, both employees and students, and it works the same across the whole university.

Employees log in to Weblogon by using their LUCAT identity, and students should use their STiL identity instead.

Weblogon is only available as a wireless computer network. See the list of conference rooms for details of which conference rooms have Weblogon. To use Weblogon, you need a laptop with wireless connectivity. In this guide is described below how to connect using such a wireless network connection.

Security

Weblogon is a wireless network that is advertised by the name LU weblogon. Keep in mind that when you use weblogon communication takes place with a very simple form of encryption that does not offer any protection, and is open for anyone who is on the same network, i.e. students and visitors, to intercept.

Because of the low security of Weblogon, you should not use Weblogon for access to key systems where high security is required.

If higher security is desired, please instead use a network cable or use the wireless network eduroam, which provides better security. Separate instructions for how to connect to Eduroam can be found on the page Eduroam.

Requirements

To use Weblogon, you need access to the following in advance:

  • A computer with a working wireless network.
  • Your LUCAT or STiL credentials.
  • A keyword which, however, is not a secret. The key, or encryption key as it is sometimes called, is alternated every six months according to the schedule below.

Temporary Access for External Guests

Sometimes it is desirable to provide temporary network access to external entities, such as representatives from other colleges, universities or companies, who do not have a LUCAT or STiL identity.

This can often be arranged by requesting that the required number of temporary guest identities are arranged in advance in LUCAT. Please contact the LUCAT catalogue manager at your department for assistance with this.

Once you have arranged temporary guest identities for your guests this way, they can then use this data to connect to and log on to the wireless network Weblogon.

Additional Information

LDC has more information about the wireless networks at the page http://www.ldc.lu.se/tjanster/natverk/tradlost-nat.
