Submitting a Grid certificate application.


  • Grid user certificates:

    • As a result, a personal identity check of this person is required.
    • The user should bring the signed application and their valid identification document (passport, ID card or German residence permit) to the IT-ServiceDesk in person.
  • Grid server certificates:
    • An ID check of the applicant is necessary.
    • Grid server certificate applications can be handed in at the IT-ServiceDesk.
