Custom templates, auto-enrollment, revocation, CRLs, OCSP arrays, offline root CAs, migrating to a new root CA, making CAs highly available — Certificate Services is a core infrastructure service. However, most server administrators don't pay it much attention; sometimes even forgetting to renew the root certificate. This session will cover what you need to know and what you should know about this oft forgotten aspect of critical infrastructure so you can start feeling comfortable, instead of apprehensive, about your Certificate Services deployment.

You will learn:

  • How to deploy an effective Windows based PKI infrastructure
  • How to manage certificate services
  • About secure certificate services
