Information for RA operators and DRAOs

Since the DFN PKI will no longer accept applications for server certificates at the end of 2022 and no more applications for user certificates at the end of 2023, it is important that all RA operators familiarize themselves with the GÉANT TCS PKI! Therefore, the corresponding information is now provided here for both PKI. It is clear that the path will go to the GÉANT TCS PKI by the end of 2023.

The information on this page is only interesting and necessary for the so-called RA operators, in the DFN PKI Teilnehmerservice-Mitarbeitenden, TS-MA for short, and in the GÉANT TCS PKI Department Registration Authority Officer, DRAO for short!
