Summary (Advanced Certificate Enrollment and Management)

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 with SP1

As the white paper thoroughly demonstrates, Windows Server 2003 provides a robust and flexible platform for supporting even the most complex or demanding deployment environments. Although the primary focus of the white paper is to demonstrate the procedures for supporting offline domain controller X.509 certificate enrollment in a disconnected or branch-office deployment, the procedures directly apply to all complex application environments. Administrators may apply the concepts presented to support any type of network and infrastructure services. These include directory servers (ADAM), radius servers (IAS), Web servers (IIS), and other stand-alone applications that require X.509 certificate enrollment or provisioning to provide or enable secure protocols, messaging, or application services.
