RRAS Computer Certificate for EAP-TLS

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When you use EAP with a strong EAP type, such as Transport Layer Security (TLS) with smart cards or certificates, both the client and the server use certificates to verify their identities to each other. For successful authentication, certificates must meet requirements both on the server and on the client.

For information about computer certificates for EAP-TLS, see "EAP Overview" and "Certificate Requirements for PEAP and EAP" in Windows Server 2008 NPS Help.
