The main attributes of an RA are its name, description, and status. The RA name is a short internal name used mainly to identify the RA to the operators. Description should be a longer text that more precisely identifies the intended use of this RA. The RA Status is either Active or Inactive. RAs marked as Inactive cannot be used.

Preliminary decisions concerning the certificate policy and publishing methods of the RA can also be done already on the Create New Registration Authority page. The settings are the same as on the Create New Certification Authority page. See Section Creating a New CA.

Click Proceed to create the new RA.
