Setting up a certification authority under Windows 2012R2 / 2016

Intro

Presentation

A Certificate Authority (CA) can issue certificates for internal internet sites, RDS connections …

The advantage of having a CA is having to deploy a single certificate on the computers, and some Windows services require certificates from a CA to work:

  • RemoteApp
  • Client RDP HTML5

On Windows, there are two types of CAs (summary):

  • Company: CA linked to an Active Directory that can issue certificates for domain members (posts / users).
  • Standalone: AC that can be a member or not of a domain that issues certificates of the generations of “manual request”.
