RCMP Local Registration Authority
- Course Category:
To access secure police services applications, members must register for personal Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) credentials through the RCMP PKI Certificate Authority (CA) in Ottawa. Outside of Ontario, police agencies that require PKI services from the RCMP must have a certified Local Registration Authority (LRA). An LRA is an individual who is certified by, and performs certificate duties for their agency on behalf of, the RCMP CA, including:
- identifying and authenticating new digital certificate users;
- recovering the profiles of existing users;
- authenticating a user’s identity; and
- authorizing the revocation of a user’s certificate.
The RCMP Local Registration Authority course provides the information for a police member to be certified as an LRA for their agency. It is specifically designed for Canadian Policing Partner Agency employees as well as RCMP Employees. This training is mandatory for individuals to become an LRA.
Authorization to enroll in this course is granted by the RCMP PKI Administration Program.
