Just as a sidenote, Android does support EAP-PWD, which works without
certificates and uses some kind of zero knowledge proof to authenticate the
parties (radius, wifi client) to each other, at the small drawback of
transmitting the user name in plain text. Thus, EAP-PWD should always be safe
to use with eduroam regardless of how the end user's device is configured.
