Deploy PKI Certificates for SCCM 2012 R2 Step by Step Guide This is a Step by Step Guide to Deploy PKI Certificates for SCCM 2012 R2. This step-by-step example deployment, which uses a Windows Server 2012 R2 certification authority (CA), contains procedures to guide you through the process of creating and deploying the public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates that Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager uses. These procedures use an enterprise certification authority (CA) and certificate templates. The steps are appropriate for a test network only, as a proof of concept. I will be adding few more posts related to the PKI certificates as I work on it.
