As a member of RWTH Aachen University, you have the option of renewal your X.509 certificate of DFN-PKI without making an appointment and without an on-site identity check.

For this purpose, you have to send the dated, hand-signed and scanned declaration of participation for the user or group certificate in a signed e-mail to the . Please make sure that you send this e-mail from the e-mail address for which the user certificate is to be issued. For group certificates, however, the e-mail has to be sent from the mailbox of the person making the request and not from the functional e-mail address.

In our documentation portal IT Center Help you will find further information and instructions on how to apply for and configure user, group and server certificates.
