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.

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
