Yes you can.
However i would use a catalog if at all possible.
Refer this MOS document *Howto make a consistent RMAN backup in an Standby database in Active DataGuard mode [ID 1419923.1]*
You can refer this on how to restore standby backups to primary database
Thank you very much msberg. Could you please answer the below queries as well?
Should I cancel Real Time Apply before starting RMAN?
Will it make difference in the control file of standby syncing with primary? Is it possible to use these backups on primary to restore and recover the database(including control file backup)? If possible, how will I do that?
Refer the Metalink doc mentioned in my previous post.
You can take the backup of the standby database when the recovery is in progress.
