1.5 Prerequisites/Preconditions

MDE issues X.509v3 [MS-WSTEP] certificates and provisioning information for device management clients [MS-MDM] to enable a relationship between the user and a device in the DMS.

The MES issues a security token (after appropriate authentication) that is used to authenticate to the ES.

The ES communicates with a certification authority (CA) to issue an X.509 certificate.

The ES issues provisioning information for a device management client [MS-MDM]. The ES has to be configured with this information or be able to retrieve it from the DMS.
