"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It can be done,  I won't blow smoke here, something I've never done.  We had RMS at my last job internally but it was a classified network and we didn't extend it

You can search around for more info.

It is going to take a lot of research and planning.

Thanks

Short answer: Yes, it can be used for external clients. Yes, it is FAR easier for internal use only.

Longer answer: It requires such an interlocking set of services (SQL, CA infrastructure, OCSP integrated with IIS, client organization CA integration) that it frequently isn't worth the effort.
