Description

The Set-HgsKeyProtectionConfiguration cmdlet assigns a communication certificate to the Key Protection Service that runs on the local computer. The Key Protection Service uses the communication certificate to sign the metadata document that the service provides.

Examples

Example 1: Assign a certificate to be the communication certificate

PS C:\> Set-HgsKeyProtectionConfiguration -CommunicationsCertificateThumbprint "d39203a3b3544743ad552afe0615dc1f" -Force

This command assigns the certificate that has the specified thumbprint to be the communication certificate for the Key Protection Service. The command specifies the Force, and so, it does not prompt you for confirmation.

Example 2: Assign a certificate file to be the communications certificate

PS C:\> Set-HgsKeyProtectionConfiguration -CommunicationsCertificatePath "C:\example.pfx"
Set-HgsKeyProtectionConfiguration -CommunicationsCertificateThumbprint "d39203a3b3544743ad552afe0615dc1f" -Force

This command assigns a certificate file to be the communications certificate for the Key Protection Service.

Example 3: Assign a certificate file with a password to be the communications certificate

PS C:\> Set-HgsKeyProtectionConfiguration -CommunicationsCertificatePath "C:\example.pfx" -CommunicationsCertificatePassword $Password

This command assigns a password-protected certificate file to be the communications certificate for the Key Protection Service. The certificate password is stored as a SecureString in the $Password variable.
