Cisco IPSEC vpn

I am planning to setup a cisco ipsec vpn. Does a windows certificate server need to be installed on the domain or can cisco device itself provide the certificate to remote access clients ?

The cisco device is cisco 1700 with advanced security IOS

ipsec does not need a (ssl) certificate, it works with preshared keys. the cisco 1700 can manage the connections by itself if set up correctly.
