Overview

Introduction

The Install and Configure AD Certificate Services module provides you with the instruction and server hardware to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  1. Install and Configure Active Directory Certificate Services
  2. Configure Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs)
  3. Implement Administrative Role Separation
  4. Configure Active Directory Certificate Services Backup and Recovery

Exercise 1 - Install and Configure Active Directory Certificate Services

In this exercise, you will install and configure Active Directory Certificate Services in a Windows domain environment.

Exercise 2 - Configure Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs)

In this exercise, you will configure certificate revocation lists in Certificate Services. When a user certificate is revoked by an administrator regardless of the reason, the Certificate Server records that cancellation to prevent a user from reusing a revoked certificate. In a large network, the revocation of the certificate must be replicated to other CA servers to prevent cancelled certificates from being used to access network resources.

Exercise 3 - Implement Administrative Role Separation

In this exercise, you will implement administrative role separation in Active Directory Certificate Services. Role based administration allows you to divide the administrators into separate CA roles each with its own set of capabilities. Roles can be designated using each user's security settings.

Exercise 4 - Configure Active Directory Certificate Services Backup and Recovery

If Certificate Services fails to start on the server, no certificate can be issued to a user or computer and certificate revocation lists (CRLs) cannot be published among CA servers in the network. It is essential that you become familiar with different ways to backup and restore AD Certificate Services.
