Hi all,
when using roaming profiles (in a MS environmnet either with windows server 2003 or windows server 2008) are user digital cerficates included in these profiles? If so, in a scenery where a user with a roaming profile logging in different workstations, how to prevent that misuse of those unattended user digital cerficates?
Thanks for your help
Leonardo

Hi, yes the certificates will be placed in the users certificate stores on each workstation they log into.
Only administrators can access these stroes, however, which is by design for data recovery etc if a user leaves, so they should be quite safe unless all your users are local admins.
