Customer Registration

Microsoft® Certificate Server registers users for services on the Internet by following these conditions:

  • Receives certificate requests and issues completed certificates over HTTP.

  • Checks information in a certificate request against an external database.

  • Optionally defers completion of the request process so the customer can be personally contacted for verification.

This set of conditions comprise a typical offline approval policy that would be appropriate when there is need for a high degree of user validation.
