Become RAO

Issue SPID and digital signatures in complete autonomy to your customers

More and more online services require certified user identification through services such as SPID (Digital Identity) and digital signatures. In order to use them, it is necessary to contact authorised operators, known as RAO (Registration Authority Officer).

In order to become RAO and be able to identify those requesting a digital certification service, it is necessary to be accredited by a CA (Certification Authority) or through an LRA (Local Registration Authority).

Genesys Informatica Srl is accredited as LRA by Namirial Spa, Certification Authority.
Namirial is a Trust Service Provider accredited by AgID and authorized to issue digital identity services such as electronic signature, Smart Card and SPID.

To become RAO it is necessary to create an LRA affiliated to LRA Genesys Informatica; the affiliated LRA will then be able to validate its RAOs, one or more, according to the procedure indicated by the Namirial CA.

How to become an RAO and why it is an opportunity

The RAO accreditation process is an important qualification and offers the possibility of selling services that are increasingly in demand on the market. The reseller operates completely independently from its control panel in reselling digital identity services, directly from its own premises.

In fact, RAO authorised resellers can:

  • identify their customers directly at their own premises or at the customer's premises ('de visu' identification);
  • issue electronic signature devices and Smart Cards;
  • issue SPIDs (Sistema Pubblico di Identit√† Digitale - Public Digital Identity System)

RAO accredited resellers are trained directly by Namirial, through specific online courses after which they will have access to the control panel, which they will use to issue digital certification services in complete autonomy (electronic signature, Smart Card and SPID).

Below are the steps to become RAO:

  • Obtain a Namirial ID. You can obtain a Namirial ID by purchasing the SPID service, Personal SPID. This is essential to access the specific online training provided by Namirial.
  • Follow online training. Aspiring RAOs will have to attend two training courses on Namirial's e-learning portal "Formazione Base RAO/IR Firma Digitale per portal" and "Formazione Base RAO SPID per portal".
  • Individually sign all documents required for the census of the affiliated LRA and its RAOs, and provide a valid identity documen.

Once qualified, the RAO will have to place the order of the services with Hosting Solutions, which will send the physical devices and enable the delivery of SPID directly on the RAO's control panel.
