Client Certificate Enrollment

Client certificate enrollment is the process that begins with a client submitting a certificate request and ends with the installation of the issued certificate in the client application. The client can then use the certificate to be authenticated by the server, which validates the certificate before allowing access by the client.

Microsoft® Certificate Server includes an HTTP enrollment control with forms for the following certificate enrollment tasks:

  • Installing Certificate Authority (CA) certificates.

  • Enrolling a Web Server.

  • Certificate enrollment using Microsoft Internet Explorer version 3.0 or later.

  • Certificate enrollment using Netscape Navigator 3.0.

The enrollment control and its forms are accessed through the Certificate Enrollment Tools Web Page.
