Using Certification Authority

The Microsoft Certification Authority (CA) issues and manages digital certificates for a network environment.

A digital certificate is a digital document that provides identification credentials for a user, computer, or entity. Digital certificates provide support for public key cryptography because digital certificates contain the public key for the user, computer, or entity identified in the certificate.

As part of a public key infrastructure, the CA validates the public key provided by the requester of the digital certificate. Ivanti Device and Application Control use the CA with the TLS communication protocol to ensure the integrity of the data encryption process.
