SPID stands for Public System for Digital Identity. This system will allow access to all Public Administration sites with a single digital identity.

A SPID digital identity can be obtained from one of the identity providers accredited by the Agenzia per l'Italia Digitale (AgID).

Please note: between the SPID identity provider there is InfoCert, which also supplies the digital signature services used by the Politecnico di Milano. However, there is no relationship between the SPID identity and the digital signature. The SPID identity can be requested to any of identity provider certified.
Starting From September 12, 2016 Politecnico di Milano will support access to its online services through SPID; University credentials (person code and password) will remain valid.
The use of SPID credentials is optional and has no influence on the number and type of services you can access.
To ensure a greater level of security are accepted only digital SPID identities of Level 2, which involves the insertion of a temporary code sent to the user at the moment of the authentication.
When you first log in with SPID, you will be asked to follow an activation procedure which will allow the system to link your SPID identity to a University account, if you already have one.
If you have no University account, you will be asked to create a new one.
Due to technical reasons, SPID credentials cannot be used for IMAP,POP or SMTP access to the University email account.
It will not be possible to use SPID to be identified in order to take part in entrance tests, remedial OFA registration and exams.
To use these services, students must use University credentials.
