How do I issue/deploy user and computer certificate to a client from Windows 2008 Certificate Authority?
Posted on 2010-11-24
First of all. I am not a Microsoft-guy. I work with networks and communications.
I need to test certificate-authentication of 802.1x. For this reason I have a newly installed win2008 server (in lab environment) which is also a DC for my test-AD. I have installed the Certificate Authority-component in windows. I have also a Windows 7 client computer which I have joined my test-AD.
But how do I create and put a computer certificate to my client computer? And also a user-certificate? Is it tricky to do it automatic via GPO-policies? Or can I request a certificate manually from the computer?
Again, this doesnt need to scale. It is lab only. I dont need the most beautiful solution. I just need to put those certificates on the client computer.
