CA Cert vs Windows Certifcate Server
Posted on 2005-05-03
I am re-posting the question again thinking that I wil be able to grab the quick attention from someone.
I need to install a Certificate Server for two purposes:
1. authenticating wireless clients
2. serving https clients for Outlook Web Access with our exchange server.
Our environment is Windows 2003 AD (recently I upped the functional level to 2003) with two DCs. Exchange is running on one DC and I plan to install RADIUS and Certifacte Server on the other.
I was first thinking of installing an enterpise CA on one of the DCs and then I realise uninstalling a CA in Windows 2003 (if I needed to for some reason), is going to be quite messy. Then came cacert into my mind. What are the pros and cons of the two and and which factors hould influence my decision to go either way.
