Identity verification RA-Portal

Identity verification RA-Portal


In the RA-Portal, an identity check before applying for a user certificate is only necessary for persons who have neither employee nor student status at the RWTH Aachen University.


Create ID verification code in the RA-Portal.

If an identity check is required, you are notified thereof once you have clicked on "Client-Zertifikat beantragen" under the menu item "Meine Client-Zertifikate" in the RA-Portal.

For the ID verification, it is mandatory that you have generated an ID verification code in the RA-Portal beforehand.

To do so, agree to the data processing and click on."Identitätsprüfung starten" to continue.

Please make a note (or screenshot) of the generated ID verification code and keep it safe. Without this code, the ID check cannot take place. The IT-ServiceDesk staff cannot look up the code for you.
